I was over at Ward-Beck the other week and saw some really nice turrets coming off the line.   Hand Made, versatile and robust.
Just what you like to see in something that’s going to have the crap kicked out of it by announcers and A2s.

this one is “en francais” – j’aimme le Talké / Backé button

Kevin was mentioning an updated version of this box…

There was also a R257-1 out with a built in 8 source router.  2014-01-20 17.29.16

Youtube sound quality…

I was watching an Interesting lecture from google and Andrew Scheps had an interesting point about youtube audio: Youtube doesn’t have an option to select audio rate. The sound rate is based directly on the video playback rate. The lesson: If you are uploading songs to youtube with a place holder video, be sure it’s at 1080p. The audio will be fixed at 128kbps when the video is encoded under 720P and default to 384kbps at 1080P. Other great info: if you’re topping out the encoder, lower it 0.7dB

and check out http://www.orastream.com/ for client delivery based on streaming MP4 SLS encoded files

A project I’ve been working on has come… full circle ;-)


Congrats to Kevin Park and the Lacquer channel team for getting the Neumann VMS70 back in the game. A fantastic project to have been a part of! We recapped the entire audio electronics for Kevin before he had lathe aficionado Chris Muth calibrate it. It’s a fine precision piece of audio electronics and Kevin is one HELL of a lathe mechanic and cutting engineer! It, and he, are in good hands over at Toronto’s Lacquer Channel. I’m excited to cut a few plates myself!

Many Thanks to Dave, Jose, and Tyler for their help and enthusiasm about the project!

Leaving Revolution Recording

Hey Folks:

I just wanted to thank everyone for supporting this page and enjoying the shenanigans I and the boys have been up to for the last few years. I will be leaving the Revolution Recording Custom Shop and my position as technical supervisor at Toronto’s Revolution Recording to go attend school full time this new year. What I’ve learned, done and been exposed to at Revolution Recording has been life changing; I can’t thank the owners, staff and clients enough for the opportunities they have given to me.

My blog will still be maintained at www.Phasebook.org, follow along if you dare!

Be well!
