  1. I was BBQing a steak in the dark last night which became very distracting when the bats started doing dive bomb maneuvers just over my head then the coyotes started barking what seemed less than a fifty meters away. Sheesh, the animal kingdom needs to learn social distancing too.

  2. My friend rested the day before yesterday. 59 years. Many other clubs showed their respects. A great person, kind, loving, always taking care of the weakest boys in the cycling peloton Our club will place a commemorative plaque on one of his favorite routes.

  3. After thinking about it, I thought that just saying that Reaper was good for live recording and batch processing wasn't giving it a decent recommendation. After all, it was my main DAW for 4-5 years and there are tons of "pros" about it. Of course, which DAW is best for someone depends almost entirely on what they want to do with it and what I think of it is influenced by my needs. Reaper is pretty close to an open source program so the users have a great deal to do with it's features and strengths. This goes hand and hand with the fantastic Reaper Forum which is ful

  4. Yesterday I started with Bkool again. The feeling (in Watt) is much more realistic than the Tack app, although unfortunately it does not offer real videos of your route.

  5. Cheers, Jose. Grieve as much as you need, we understand. I think most of us are at that age where we’ve either lost someone or are about to lose someone. Unrelated, I got my flu vaccine today. Semirelated, I got my shingles vaccine also.

  6. You should check out the "About Us" info on their site. UAD is probably the most storied audio engineering company in the US. Started by the legendary Bill Putnum who designed and built some of the best sounding studios and recording gear (with endless copies and plugins modeled after them). Bill Putnum Jr helps direct UAD now. UAD started as United Audio and went on to become Urie (which was bought and almost ruined by JBL). Someone we both know worked for them designing gear and still receives royalties from a DI box he designed. I wonder how Craig Uthus is do

  7. Let us know how it works out with Linux. My guess is that the lack of native plugin's could be a pain in the ass. When I first started using Reaper (during the early Paleozoic Era) I had to use a bridge on some plugins (32 vs 64 bit) and I kinda hated it. Hopefully, things are easier or maybe I'm totally wrong about the need for a bridge with VSTs. Cudos for the effort!

  8. I love Reaper for live recording. And for batch processing it's tops in my book! That's one of the reasons that it's become popular with sound designers/game sound producers. The guys who make my interface, Metric Halo, are upgrading the recording functions/software included. Their aim is to produce the single best live recording program in the world bar none. We'll see (unfortunately, I'm not going to be a great judge of that since my needs aren't exactly cutting edge).

  10. What a touching picture, Jose. Clearly a powerful man, brought down when he had a lot of living yet to do. It’s a humbling thought to all of us.

  13. Got a little over halfway framing my latest project... A 7' tall x 20' long set of monkey bars for a 5 year old boy. It's a former client, and she requested me, and my company just told her to let me have the project. It's a bit small for them to mess with. Of course it's overbuilt and it's kind of a fun little project. I'll snap some pics when it's done.

  14. Here is my T2 power supply, now with Pro Bias Maida regulator style. The small board with three blue filter capacitors is the 21st Century Maida Regulator by Tom Christiansen producing 580 volts after change of resistor. The Maida regulator replaces the 10m90s current source with Zener string and filters. I feed the regulator with unregulated 660 VDC. Only 5.1M resistor on psu board is used. Works great. P.S. still need some wire clean up… will probably never happen

  15. So the verdict is that they're pretty good for background music. They aren't able to produce a lot of bass, but I'm actually impressed at how good they sound, considering the limitations of tiny drivers that do not rest in the ear canal. One complaint was a lack of volume control, which didn't seem like a major flaw, seeing as the volume control on my phone is easily within reach. However, the latest update now has voice activated volume control. Another complaint was that anything past 60% volume was pretty distorted. I don't find that to be the case. 100% volume isn't that loud or disto
