I never miscue a record. I am punctual, well-prepared, and dislike clutter. Outgoing and helpful, I'm always appropriately dressed. I do not behave erratically and have excellent penmanship. My CD's never skip, and I am in good health. I like all the notes, in any order.

the office I work in is very cold today. I am considering turning on my space heater. Bryce, it would help if you played something extra-spicy.

nice music to get flooded by

Have not heard this Peter Walker record, very cool.

He is a joy to see live.
Avatar Fri. 6/13/14 1:08pm Bryce:

hadn't heard it either! it's pretty great. Light In the Attic just reissued it!
Avatar Fri. 6/13/14 1:09pm Chris from DC:

Yes, he was very entertaining. Didn't know he was so into flamenco, either.
Avatar Fri. 6/13/14 1:15pm YETI BOB:

isn't it "Tempel" not "Temple"? (a nod to "Ash Ra" ?)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 6/13/14 1:16pm adrian in mpls:

is it David Cameron's Star they're navigating? if so, that's gotta be treacherous

yes it is, thanky! was mis-typed on our label here....

I was going to commence dire self-immolations as punishment for lateness, but this treated-acoustic piece is too groovy. Will punch self innaface later.

Really enjoying the DC monsoon season.

NO MORE MONSOONS untiil we close the house and we hand over the keys, goddammit! Irrationally afraid the freakin' place will cumble to pieces or leak like a gauze hellhole. SO CLOSE...!

hey gang - random question. does anyone here use contact mics regularly?
  Fri. 6/13/14 1:45pm headjeeez:

Latecomers will not be seated until after the first piece
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 6/13/14 1:45pm steve:

or irregularly?
Avatar Fri. 6/13/14 1:47pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

Steve: Irregularly. Both the soldered radio-shack piezo transducers as well as the cheapo clip-on variety that Korg makes...
Avatar Fri. 6/13/14 1:47pm DCE:

once in awhile, steve
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 6/13/14 1:48pm steve:

now we're talkin. follow up - what preamp do you use? whatever one is built into your mixer, or a legit fancy mic pre?
Avatar Fri. 6/13/14 1:49pm DCE:

usually run mine into a couple of pedals and then into the mixer
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 6/13/14 1:50pm coelacanth:

i often use "regular" mics with a molded chunk of foam in-between the mic & what i'm contacting.
Avatar Fri. 6/13/14 1:50pm DCE:

I got two great ones from Crank Sturgeon and then a couple of cheapie homemade ones
Avatar Fri. 6/13/14 1:51pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

Nothing fancy here, preamp-wise. Phantom power from the mxr if the signal is too light. Often I'm putting it thru so many fx toys, it's coming out cole-slaw no matter what.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 6/13/14 1:51pm coelacanth:

steve,you're playing with tape loops now,aren't you?
Avatar Fri. 6/13/14 1:52pm DCE:

I'm usually shouting into mine and then using the SuperEgo to freeze the shouts FOR ETERNITY
Avatar Fri. 6/13/14 1:52pm Bryce:

barcus-berry stuff's real fun to play with...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 6/13/14 1:56pm steve:

i NEED to try the Barcus Berry Planar Wave or a similar high end thing like the Trance Audio Amulet - im like desparate, but i don't know how to get one to try besides to spend $300-400 buying online and then try to return it if i don't think its worth it. i was gonna email BB and Trance Audio and ask if there's any stores in the city selling there wares.
Avatar Fri. 6/13/14 1:58pm Bryce:

the frequency response on a harpy/piano-y bit i tried was a real pleasure. don't own one, though.
Avatar Fri. 6/13/14 2:00pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

While we're all workshoppin' here:
For field recording, any of you have opinions re: windscreens, foam vs. fur?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 6/13/14 2:05pm steve:

fuck. thing is its shockingly easy to make an awesome full frequency contact mic preamp with 10 bucks of stuff from Radio Shack if you know basic analog circuits (i do). im just so goddam curious if those mysterious high end thingies are all that much better, or if they just have 1-2 transistors and 10 bucks of radio shack stuff inside...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 6/13/14 2:05pm coelacanth:

i've never used fur/feathers,but am usually satisfied with foam.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 6/13/14 2:08pm George of Troy:

I have a Rycote zeppelin on one of my mics, and it's pretty effective against wind noise, although I still get some handling noise if I'm not careful. I've also had decent results with fur on the integrated mics on handheld recorders. I've never found foam to be very effective myself.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 6/13/14 2:09pm common:

I really want to learn about analog circuits...make my own stuff.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 6/13/14 2:09pm coelacanth:

...really i should say i've ALWAYS been able to get what i want with foam; Just not always on the first try.
Avatar Fri. 6/13/14 2:11pm DCE:

what kind of fur do they use? is it vegan-friendly?
Avatar Fri. 6/13/14 2:11pm People Like Us:

Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 6/13/14 2:11pm coelacanth:

'thing is,if there's so much wind/breath/etc. that i need 2 layers of foam,it DOES muffle the sound a bit.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 6/13/14 2:12pm Andrew Waterloo:

@steve It's like they're worried about an undetectable level of noise /imbalance that sits below the grass on an oscilloscope.

heading out to do a random road-trip from southern California to Jackson, Wyoming via southern Arizona, & figured I should turn it into a sound-farming deal & do some audio frankenstein on it afterwards. Anticipating much wind...
  Fri. 6/13/14 2:15pm nic:

Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 6/13/14 2:15pm coelacanth:

there must be a foam that's less dense for extreme circumstances. I've never looked; but i will never buy fur. I'm sure it's not necessary.

There's a tiny town south of Tucson (patagonia) where I swear to god, all the crows & ravens on earth live. They gather in the town crossroads (in huge numbers) and shout at each other, it's amazing. Gotta catch those dudes.

ha, well said Andrew. it just drives me nuts that i can't try one irl and/or open it up and be 100% sure its purely the marketing nonsense we suspect.

there's at least 2 ravens in rocky mountain park,& they will just about walk up to you. i didn't record them,but you have a golden opportunity!

i have no doubt you can whip up a good high-Z pre! whether there's any real difference..... there MUST be a way you can demo one!

right on. i got a pretty awesome one with output buffering and basic tone sculpting and lotsa headroom breadboarded right now. i've been neurotically testing and tweaking the past few days. my usual test subject told me to stfu and get soldering.
