1. Acoustic panels only work for the acoustics within a room and do basically nothing for sound coming from another space. To block sound you need to add more mass or add isolation, which is not something that can be done without construction, especially for a ceiling.

  2. While Kansas is a red state, you'd be hard-pressed to find a city more liberal than Lawrence. The rural parts of the county are mostly republican, but the city itself is very blue.

  3. Iirc there's a setting to not leave the host application when the headset goes to sleep. Disabling sleep is risky because the headset can get burn-in.

  4. Alonso drives from 17 to 5 and doesn't get Dotd, really weird.

  5. Generally splitters like that are wired in parallel, which means you're dropping the impedance with each headphone you add. If you have four headphones that are 50 ohms, their combined impedance in parallel drops down to 12.5 ohms. You end up with the same voltage at each phone, but the total current requirement from the amp goes up 4x. Best case this will reduce the maximum volume of the headphones by 9dB, which is about half as loud. Worst case you'll draw too much current from the amp and either trip its over current protection or damage it.

  6. Having panels behind speakers is fairly common as it can help reduce SBIR. You'll want to have a gap at least as big as the width of the port behind the speaker to make sure it functions properly. So if you have a 2" port, leave at least 2" between the speaker and the panel.

  7. I used something similar to this when I did conference A/V, not sure if it was that exact brand. The one I used was basically just a lav and transmitter packed inside a foam ball.

  8. Already some good advice in here, but it entirely depends on what style you're going for. For a more classical sound; open the lid and use the mic to capture the sound bouncing off of it. For a more modern, pop sound; get the mic up close to the sound board.

  9. If you're worried about power surges, first make sure your power outlets have a functioning third-prong ground. You can get cheap testers from any hardware store. That plus any decent quality surge protector should be plenty of protection.

  10. I don’t always use a stereo pair on the acoustic in this sort of guitar + vox tracking setup (not a huge fan of an artificially-wide acoustic guitar sound in general), but when I have I found mics in a figure 8 pattern (mics that worked well ime were: 77-DX, 44-BX, U87, and km86) work the best to isolate the guitar signal from the vox, with their deep nulls aimed at the singer’s mouth and their frontal lobes angled downward toward the guitar. Then I use a closer, unidirectional mic for the vox (something like an EV re-20 or re-15 if the singer has good technique, U87 or U67 if they’re all over the place). I hope that helps

  11. Second this. Figure-8 patterns are perfect for this scenario because they have aggressive nulls at the side, you can even use one for the vocals as well.

  12. It's probably dust in the potentiometer controlling the volume. Small bits of debris can temporarily affect electrical flow through the pot as you're moving it.

  13. For the most part, sound diffracts around anything that is smaller than its wavelength. You can measure the thickest parts of the webbing and find what frequency of sound has that wavelength. Anything above that frequency will be blocked if it hits that part of the ball.

  14. Repubs when you’re losing KS you might want to rethink that whole nazi thing, turns people off

  15. The KS governorship has been going back and forth for the past 50 years.

  16. And now he's the only one with power to remove Sheriffs.

  17. Nothing like an American racing team joining up with a car manufacturer that doesn't sell in North America. I'm here for it.

  18. Not all DAWs do live resampling. Cubase, for example, converts files to the session sample rate beforehand (or interprets them at the session sample rate which changes the speed and pitch).

  19. Yes, it will dramatically change the response of the cabinet, both the damping and the frequency response. You could make a smaller enclosure within a larger enclosure to get the right dimensions for your driver.

  20. I attended a session at an AES conference by the main producer of optical mics a few years ago. At the time they seemed a lot more interested in medical and industrial applications over pro audio. They're probably making a lot more money there than they can from audio production.

  21. Talk about dampening a room.Sometimes too much is not a good thing.

  22. Teal or turquoise is a great compliment to yellow. Red too.

  23. Tienes muchas vacas en mi pantalones!

  24. There's a legal definition for "internet radio" that allows you to stream music while paying lower licensing. One of the requirements is that the music being played can't be revealed in advance. Pandora used that to get started, and it seems like Amazon is using it as a cheaper way to provide streaming music.

  25. Generally the only reason to use one on the mic is if there's an excessive amount of low-frequency content in the air that's causing the preamp to clip with an otherwise normal signal level. Once distortion occurs, you can filter out the low-end, but not the harmonics the distortion creates. That's a pretty rare situation though.

  26. There's basically four types of dynamics controls. Compressors reduce the dynamic range and expanders increase it. The standard type of compressor is downward, which acts above the threshold, but there are also upward compressors which raise the volume below the threshold. Downward expanders lower the volume below the threshold, while upward expanders raise the volume above the threshold.
