With as many folks out there who have HTs, surely there is some way to get them more engaged, make everyone a better operator, and build some community. Here’s an idea to do that – but it’s just the start really. I’ve put some details that need to be sorted out as questions. I’d like … Continue reading “A VHF/UHF handheld activity proposal”
So my normal way of learning a new language or computer tool is pretty simple and probably the way most people do it: Dive in. There’s a problem that lead to that language, google to find & install the tools, and then google to solve the problem. Repeat until the solution is good enough. It … Continue reading “On Learning Python with Coursera”
While it’s easy to find place to put written content on the web, audio content is less easy than just using a blogging site like WordPress. Podcasts have an entire ecosystem of hosting providers, aggregators, etc. But what about the other stuff like field recordings, ambiances, and other audio? Content that’s not exactly a podcast, … Continue reading “Soundcloud vs Bandcamp”
So you’ve got your Sound Devices MixPre recorder and you want to connect digitally to your iPhone to get some audio into FiLMiC Pro. You connected a USB-A cable between the phone and recorder (because if you use USB C your phone ends up powering the recorder, which sucks, and a USB-A cable allows your … Continue reading “Solving the Mutli-Channel Audio Detected error using MixPre with FiLMiC Pro”
I see a lot of posts & comments where folks are complaining about having to interview with more than a few people for a new position at a company. It seems like these folks think just the future boss, and maybe one other person should be enough. Since interviews are hard, we should have less … Continue reading “Excessive interviews could save you”
Got an iPad Pro that won’t charge? Tried resetting it and that didn’t work? Same here. I can’t guarantee a fix, but this worked for me and has a few times now: Let the iPad die – all the way. This may take a day or so, but let it get down to where it … Continue reading “Solution for iPad that won’t charge”
In late 2021 we took a trip to my wife’s childhood home of Miami, Florida. We spent several days see some sites, visiting some folks, and spending time with her mother. After the trip to Maine earlier that year where I brought the MixPre6ii and multiple mics, I decided to try the other end of … Continue reading “Zoom H1n As Only Recorder”
Just got a Tascam DR-10x to play with. I was looking for something with lower handling & wind noise than the H1n, less size than the MixPre, and wasn’t concerned with stereo for a lot of what I do. $137 delivered. Mixed bag so far, but I don’t think I’ll be sending it back. Size … Continue reading “Tascam DR-10x Review First Looks”
So we’re back from our trip and I’ve got several hours of recordings. Something I’ve been trying to figure out is how to turn the recordings I make of my family into more of a finished product. Over the years I’ve accumulated something over 600 recordings. Just like a huge stack of photos or a … Continue reading “What do you call the audio equivalent of home movies?”
The SoundDevices MixPre recorder comes with a battery ‘sled’ that holds 4 AA batteries along with an AC adapter. A set of 4 Alkaline batteries might power the MixPre for maybe 20 minutes, which isn’t really useful for anything. Four rechargeable batteries fair a lot better – over an hour in my experience – and … Continue reading “Powering the MixPre – reconsidering the options”
