  1. Past hour
  2. JBL cabinets make me chuckle.
  3. All GB packages have been shipped as of today except for two. One of the two is pending the participant's response to my shipping payment request. Most of you have PayPal'ed me the shipping cost. Thanks! For those who have not yet PayPal'ed me the shipping cost please check your PM or PM me. I have been keeping track but there were 50 packages so may have missed a few. Shipping cost for US address is a flat rate of $8.4 US. For non-US address it depends on the location and weight and I added $1 US for the bubble envelop used. This GB is now officially closed. Happy building!
  4. Today
  5. I wonder if it's possible to jumper/bypass the resistors on the output - so you can use the headphone out direct from the transformers
  6. It's a shame they use a wall wart. I suppose that goes with the territory when something is small/cheap. However, Kenton have always been a bit of a go-to for weird little MIDI problem solvers, saving many headaches.
  7. Thanks for the pointers. I especially appreciate the comments regarding bombproofness. I actually only have a couple USB-MIDI, most of my devices are from the 90’s.
  8. I discovered them precisely by Gogo Penguin ... Gondwana Record are signing very interesting artists
  9. I just knew that of anywhere on Her Majesty's Interpipes, here would be where people were alert to the sight of a popped capacitor 😇 Also, thanks, having a lot of fun with my little modular, even if I'm barely scratching the surface of some of the more complex modules. Regarding your MIDI question, if you just want to turn a device with USB MIDI into old-style DIN MIDI, this is one of the more straightforward and bombproof solutions: https://kentonuk.com/product/midi-usb-host-mkii/ Kenton have been making MIDI problem solvers for years (their MIDI to CV converters are justly famous for their reliability). It ain't fancy-looking, but it will get the job done. That said, I would hate to make assumptions- if you want something more fancy that can tie ALL THE THINGS together, these are very well-regarded: https://www.bome.com/products/bomebox If you need to connect multiple USB-MIDI clients to the Bomebox, I believe that an MTT-compliant powered USB hub will work nicely. (I have one of these- https://www.expert-sleepers.co.uk/fh2.html - but it's probably overkill for anyone who doesn't already have a rack to bolt it into. Lovely, if cryptic, bit of kit.)
  10. Just finished Maniac & loved it! So quirky, and so many layers. Cathartic & ultimately satisfying, imo. One of my favorite tv series ever now.
  11. Rafiq Bhatia - Standards Vol.1 It's an EP released this year on Bandcamp. Cecile McLorin contributes to the second tune.
  12. Rick & Morty, 4th season.
  13. "Better" is a relative term, each has its advantages and disadvantages. There are several SR007Mk1 variations (70xxx with the carbon box, 71xxx, SZ1) and it is probably very hard to find a 'golden' sample now, because why would anyone sell such a headphone, unless he is completely unaware of the differences and happen to accidentally own such a pair. And without comparing two SR007 headphones side-by-side(maybe new pads on both and a properly seating headband, since both may also affect the sound), it may be difficult to evaluate it. So for practical purposes, the Mk2.9 should be a better, safer option.
  14. Do people here still think the SR-007MK1 is better than the current 007MK2.9?
  15. Got my boards today. Guess it is time to place a Mouser order. Thanks for everything mwl168
  16. Hey, like what you like. IIRC you were only using it as a guide on what to watch, no-one obliged you to dislike it after the fact. Cheers.
  17. It was destiny! In season 2 episode 3 of A Series of Unfortunate Events (which I believe maps over to book #612), they introduced Esmé Squalor, clearly named after the Salinger short For Esmé, with Love and Squalor, which a certain other Esmé is named for. She just smiled the whole episode.
  18. Test Tone @ Home live right now: http://mixlr.com/illuminator/chat
  19. Good for you and great for Olive!
  20. This old disco record fits in perfectly with what I'm doing tonight in terms of BPM and key: Including it might be just a wee bit tonedeaf, however. Too bad, the song slaps straight fire as the kids say.
  21. Yesterday
  22. We adopted a dog! Her name is Olive 🥰
  23. Re: image: Egad! Someone let out the magic smoke and the chimney is utterly demolished! Re: music: Effin’ groovy!
  24. Thank you , I was happy with it too.. literally just a lunchtime patch and it all clicked into place. Old junglists never quite reform, it seems. Yep. That's a blown cap on a Eurorack power bus board. I had a cap pop on me, in an unpatched but powered rack. I pulled all the modules out, and nothing seems to have been damaged thank goodness (especially not my shiny new Disting EX module, which are hard to come by right now). It was a brand new case, too. I was a bit shaken by that. It's not like I was drawing much at all, either. That happened the day before. I transferred those modules to a spare skiff case I had kicking about, and felt like I should mark the lucky escape.
  25. Very cool! I'm a real sucker for that kind of stuff. BTW, is that a blown cap on the board of the background image?
  26. On the subject of black covers and white lines
