Hello Barry,
Once you found that U.S.-based Schoeps tech, please let everyone know.

To my knowledge, Posthorn, the original (and still?) U.S. Schoeps importer sent all mics back to Schoeps in Karlsruhe. If that has changed, I'd like to know.

Because anything worthwhile is never easy, I'm looking for a tech specializing in Schoeps microphones to finish this project for me.  My local tech isn't experienced with microphones enough to handle this and I realize the only way this is going to finish is with someone with more expertise in this area.  Does anyone have someone they can recommend?  I personally am hopeless at anything mechanical...

From experience: an original 10m Dörfler tube mic cable as was used by the broadcasters back then, would have a heater voltage drop of about 0.05-0.07VDC.

So if you set up your supply to put out exactly 4.00 VDC, you will be in the sweet spot for AC701 longevity and noise floor: 3.92-3.96VDC.

How much of a heater voltage drop would you expect along a KM56 mic cable, compared to the heater voltage output of an NKMu power supply? What's a good maximum heater voltage as measured on the power supply output? If there's a reasonable answer, then I can avoid disassembling my KM56 to measure the heater voltage there. The NKMu schematic shows a heater voltage output of between 4 and 4.4 volts. Thanks for any insight.

I have no personal experience with them so I can't say...

Good mics?

I am not sure but they look like the older version of this: The BIV-1 ribbon microphone, a Russian type.

My 20 year old Yamaha 02R96 has been giving me headaches for some time now (freezing on bootup and sometimes dropping fader automation). So, I found an 02R96VCM at a good price  and bought it. It seems to be working fine.
Here's  my issue:
With my old machine, I used Yamaha Studio Manager Version 1 quite a bit to backing up things like my "standard" (favorite) setting and automation programs. I want to use those things with my new mixer. For example, I'd like to be able to restore an old mix automation.

The problem is that Studio Manager Version 1 (which came with my old 02R96 ) uses a data format with the file extension 02X, while Studio Manager V2 (which the 02R96VCM uses) uses a data format with the file extension YSE.

Is there a way to convert .02X files to .YSE files (or is there a way to get Studio Manager Version 1 to run with the VCM mixer; I doubt there is)?

Thanks for the help.

That question has been around for a while and, like so many issues, I find it to be more of a theoretical than experiential issue.

Theoretically, you would need to distinguish between sealed bags on tube and solid-state mics. While keeping the bag open over solid-state mics makes some sense*, on tube mics, a case could be made* to always seal the bag after the mic was on:
the volume of (dryer) air in the body of the mic is greater than the air volume in the head basket.

Therefore, in a sealed environment, excess moisture will tend to be sucked away from the drier body to the more moist head, thereby drying out a moist capsule much more efficiently than through exposure to ambient air in the room.

* in practice, I have not found any different results between sealing and not sealing.

P.S.: I have a sticky that goes a bit more into drying out moist mics and capsules:

Cover any condenser mic whenever you are not using it continuously, even if just for an hour or two for lunch break. No need to talke it off the stand.

The reason: the capsule's electrostatic attraction (polarization voltage) continues, and airborne particles continue to fly towards the capsule, like the moth to the light.

What you think about seal this bags? Will avoid more moisture in the capsule? Example, in the case when i'll not use mic mics for 1 month...
