Moving stuff across the country

I most certainly had a busy “reading week”.  It started with finishing up a job My brother Mike started.  Moving 7 pallets of equipment from my moms garage in Saskatoon.    Followed by great visits with Family and friends.  I’m sorry I did not get the chance to meet with everyone I had planned to visit with.  Things got a little busy in the IT support world and there was so much family to visit!

IMG_7560
Three consoles were packaged and palleted up for shipment across the country.

2014-10-21 11.04.36 2014-10-21 11.04.22-1
Custom made dollies were built for the two large sections of console frames.

2014-10-21 11.04.16

Modules were packed, boxed and palleted.  A small fortune in bubble wrap and pallet wrap were employed. 
2014-10-21 11.04.33-2This is the PSU for a console along with a 1″ Studer A80 8 track Recorder that was made transportable.
I’m excited to work on these projects again in my “Spare time”

Stay tuned for updates of what’s happening with this lot.  We’re very excited for what’s planned :-)

APKaudio STUDIO/BROADCAST/THEATRE/TOURING/REMOTE MICROPHONE CABLE KIT CALCULATOR

The prices are very competitive while the quality is second to none.

If you’re interested in getting a quote, please send me an email and I’ll shoot you the excel calculator. 4483@APKaudio.com

http://VarialHosting.com/ is the only choice for me.

Right now I’m sharing close to 15gb of data on several public websites like this one, AudioAholics.com and WBSps.ca

I recently had a database malfunction (cause by my stupidity) and who came to the rescue?  Ryan at Varial hosting.

Many thanks for the years of uninterrupted service and support.

Due to popular demand: Ward-Beck Systems RTO-214 Rack Mount Chassis

Due to popular demand:

Introducing: the Ward-Beck Systems RTO-214 Rack Mount Chassis


APKaudio and Ward-Beck Systems are excited to announce a new lineup of retro products. Started with possibly the most requested and in demand item the WBSps.ca has needed: 

a 2RU rack enclosure for (2) 14″ WBS modules.

Most rack users have a 3RU box to enclose (2) WBS modules. With Studios shrinking in size and gear filling up the cramped racks with all the killer deals these day… there has been a need for this enclosure. 

Originally designed by veteran WBS fabricator Erwin S. for the current lineup of WBS AMS-8 products. The design updates and fabrication are carried forward by Shop Manager and Mechanical designer at Ward-Beck systems Dave Adams. Dave is a master metal smith utilizing the tools that built the modules WBSps users want to have rack mounted. Dave has been working with APKaudio to create a stable platform in a 2RU enclosure.IMG_0573-2014-05-05 IMG_0577-2014-05-05 IMG_0584-2014-05-05 IMG_0585-2014-05-05 IMG_0586-2014-05-05 IMG_0589-2014-05-05 IMG_0596-2014-05-05



The BUM (Back Unit Mount) will be pre-punched for however you decided to wire it. Power options and i/o varieties make for easy design. 

Screenshot 2014-05-05 19.06.00 Screenshot 2014-05-05 19.01.03



Future options will include:
– Internal Power supply
– DB25 pre-wired breakouts
– DB25 to EDAC connectors for the modules of your choice

It’s a banana now, but it will be ripe summer 2014!

Using a POD 2 switcher

I wanted to add some components to my home listening system, so a switcher was needed. I’ve decided to use a POD 2 switcher…
the POD-2 is a (6) Stereo input – stereo switcher that has the ability to sum all inputs. The output of the switcher feeds a Stereo Penny and Giles fader then directly to the Mackie HR824 speakers.
I’ve got to find a panel… but as far as home friendly user interface goes this is as simple as it gets.

A Social Experiment

I’ve been thinking about a social experiment.
I often take calls from people looking for services, I’ve met a lot of great people in this industry and I do stand by their great work and contributions.   So instead of fielding calls and answering the questions I’ve created a Wizard Services section at http://audioaholics.com/wizard_services

I am asking you my friends to use it to work, get work share work and do work together.  I would like to consider it my rolodex

I’ve got the permission to post a few contacts and will be doing so this week.
