I had an interesting bug with a Dugan the other day. Almost lost my mics to air, but when bypassed at the channel insert… I got to air (although I did get skunked on a mic slipping).
I recreated the fault, and found a way out of it by switch the control bus from A to B.
Here is a Video of the override acting funny
I’ve warned many guest to watch the pack when they go to the washroom. And, they giggle.
Today a colleague showed me this. It must have been REALLY in there for the wire to snap… and once it snapped it must have been awkward fishing it out.
Pissed off and pissed on…
sometimes, there’s no hope for a tape… no matter what condition it’s in. After a few hours in the oven, this 499 is pretty much toast. If it were on an A80 or ATR it would play, but a machine like this MTR is flawed from the get go. May as well replace this part with a razor blade.
I wish the author of this drawing signed it or put his name in the comments so I could thank him

It’s not rocket science but the clever addition of a simple niche to the cable tie design! The Easy_to_Cut cable tie makes snipping off a tie easier and safer. Been there; done that – the pain of snipping of cable ties can lead to a whole lot things going wrong. For example, I have once managed to snip off the external cable that covers and protected my extension cord wire. Easy_to_Cut resolves these issues by providing a built-in niche into which the tip of a cutting implement’s blade can be inserted. Superb!
Easy_to_Cut is a 2012 red dot award: design concept winner.

Practicing what I preach. Moving (14) drives into long term storage. Pulled all the backups out of the safety deposite box, and moved their contents move forward onto a 3TB hard drive.
Once it’s all checked for redundancies I will back it up to another drive off site.
For anyone nocking my non-antistatic plastic bags, I assure you they performed perfectly and will the next time I spin them up. Silica and a way for them to breath is fine.
This is client sessions, designs, pictures, documents, notes etc etc dating back to about 2001. I have Client DVD archives at home I don’t plan to move forward as it is mostly damaged and virus ridden from before I went all OSX.
Now I need to find a Hard drive shipping container from a computer store… Anyone?
Spring cleaning is around the corner and I’m here to help find homes for orphans and floating things I’m finding around my shops and basement.
I’ve got some great friends selling things I really believe in and want them to share with you.
I hope this helps…
Since the beginning of this console build: 13 has had every problem. and it continues to this day. I think consoles should be like elevators and be 25, 33… 49 channels
anyone have this Plessey? I need (3) for a console refurb.
I’m sure I’m not the only one to do this:
In an effort to avoid feedback and improve intelligibility, I push it back. It’s like giving the mic 2.5 feet extra away from the driver.
its un-noticeable to the audience and the poodles don’t start noticing it until 10ms (so don’t worry)
I show up to work and there’s a new console. It’s amazing how fast things can change when you look away for a few days.
Not the biggest proponent of digital desks, but this desk vs the M7CL it replaced is a HUGE improvement in sound quality. Now only if someone did a touchscreen Mod and software upgrade…
A helpful trick for the multiple interface user
A definite dream machine… when it’s working

Les Fabian and I designed this case for a store front and his brother Don built it for us, I wonder what happened to it when Larry and Moe bought it…
I knew I had some pictures of this cart somewhere… it eventually got painted and looked much better but as my grandfather always said “Functionality first”
It was nice for medium sized stands, clips and round basses. Cost me about $30 hahaha
