  1. Dec 13, 2012 uploaded. Mixcloud kind of sucks. At the end of an upload, I get "It looks like there was a problem with your connection, we're automatically trying your upload again." more often than not, meaning I had to reupload the whole damn thing.
  2. Just uploaded Test Tone 12-06-19 to Mixcloud: This is an impressively slow and persnicketty process.
  3. A guy I know from Discord just suggested this device to me: https://focusrite.com/en/ios-audio-interface/itrack/itrack-solo Class compliant, USB B and C connectors. Includes a USB C to Lightning cable. Class compliant.
  4. After watching the first five seasons of Magnum PI in 1080p courtesy of BezosVision, I've moved on to another relic from my childhood ...Dallas. I'm too young to remember the first however many seasons, but sure saw a lot reruns and later episodes throughout the 80s. Watching season one is interesting for a bunch of reasons. Early on, Bobby Ewing got equal or even more screen time than J.R. and as the show progressed, the latter became the real star. Also, when the show first aired I was entirely too young to understand what a sexpot lolita Lucy was, I mean holy shit dude. How did they get away with that on 70s broadcast television? Also, in episode 2 the gang go to a discotheque and the authenticity of the gear greatly amused me: That's definitely a Technics, though I'm not entirely sure which model. Also, dat rotary mixer.
  5. This thread still active? It is now... So I had the brainlet idea to try broadcasting a DJ set using redderp's RPAN (Reddit Public Access Network) system. I have an older iPhone (6+ IIRC.) I'm going to buy an Apple Lightning to USB3 adapter (so I can get USB I/O and power the damn thing) and a powered USB3 hub. I also need to pick up a class compliant audio interface (I needed one of those anyway.) My first question is, can an iOS device get stereo in from a class compliant interface? I see lots of example online, all of which are mono.
  6. Neon salesman’s sample case from 1930. ...but hey, she called him fat amirite? When zoomers speak of a "Karen" then mean women like this.
  7. Maybe it's because I hadn't eaten much in 24 hours, but I hard a crazy idea last night. Reddit, "The front page of the internet" or whatever they're calling themselves this week have an "RPAN" (Reddit Public Access Network) streaming service ...and it's free to use. There's even a specific music RPAN subreddit and DJs are specifically allowed. I want to try it out. There are some major hurdles: It's mobile only (ewww) and sessions are limited to 45 minutes unless a viewer gives the streamer an award (silly reddit thing.) I can overcome the former by coughing up for some hardware. Android and iOs can both use class compliant USB audio interfaces. I'm in the market for one of those anyway (see my story about the power outage and following power surge, above.) I'd also need a Lightning to USB adapter and a powered USB3 hub. Depending on the cost of the interface (ranging from oh, $50 to as much as one wants to spend I estimate this harebrained scheme will cost $250-500. The good news is that I can use the USB audio interface for things besides the iPhone and obviously I will. I'm also considering getting an Android "set top box." There's a legion of these things for sale on Amazon. They're all Chinesium, and range in size of a Mac Mini to a Raspberry Pi. Many a loaded with crapware and spyware, but some are actually quite good units. An Android TV box would be a later purchase, something I'd only go after if I had some success on RPAN. This nice fella put together a video on how to get good audio in to an iOS device: The only part that's unclear to me is if RPAN (and the iPhone in general) can handle stereo. It'd be a serious bummer if the whole thing was mono only.
  8. Oh boy. I've been deathly ill for the last day+ because of a smoothie I made yesterday: Look innocent enough, doesn't it? I used organic protein powder, ice and milk now that I have some back in the house. I also added a small amount of Almased, which is some hippie powder I got a local shop ages ago. I used this stuff before and it has upset my stomach, especially if I use too much or eat it too late at night. Well, yesterday I had a small amount in the middle of the day. I started feeling bad around 8PM and by midnight I was praying for death. I slept last night fitfully and didn't get out of bed for most of the day. I did manage to eat a bowl of oatmeal today, but not much else. I'm still feeling week and have residual headache. Needless to say, I took the remainder of the container and dumped in my back yard. Blegh.
  9. Inside a Cambridge Audio A100 & C100.
  10. Pathos Classic One.
  11. Trying something different, I uploaded last Friday's set to Mixcloud. First upload I've made there since 2012(!) Tracklisting included.
  12. ' "Where are my testicles, Summer?" #ANormalDayInRussia Custom 1957 Chevy crewcab. I feel personally attacked.
  13. Bogen SRB-20 Tube Receiver.
  14. Don't look now, but everyone's favorite fat headed Mexican is a 30 something ...for one more year.
