Just a suggestion... [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">No, this is where we've landed:

mixdown to 2nd RADAR.

Thanks anyway.

Again, if you are bothered, just don't drop by. We are making progress although it's hard to see with all the off topic stuff that goes on here. The input from readers has helped me think this through and come up with other ideas--so thank you to them. I don't have admin controls to edit and delete as I've said before, so my only ability to clean things up is to start a new thread when things get too ridiculous. That's just the way it is. If you think you're tired of reading, you can only imagine how much I'm ready to stop writing and do the test.

And if YOU'RE tired of reading, do you really think others want to read about how tired you are of reading? Just a thought.

The "are we there yet" comments don't get us there any faster unfortunately.

Looks like Digiengineer might be able to get a studio on June 15th--thanks Digiengineer!

In the meantime, let's keep our ears open for something sooner.

This exercise is like trying to get the Democrats, Republicans, Libertarians, Green Partys, Communists, Nudists, Passivists, Pessimists, Optimists, and the French to agree on something!!!

<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">HA! You're catching on!!

In case anyone has a room to offer, I'm only available on weekends for the next 5 weeks unless something changes. I'm confident something will come along... thanks for your support.

What if there's a minor tremor in the Hollywood basin?

Norcal just suffered through a grueling 15 sec 5.2-

...might jog the head calibration between passes. Can we all agree the anything greater than a 2.5...

You'll redo the test?

Dave,

You are a patient, patient man.

I suppose this still works though, since the 2nd mixdown Radar plays the same role as the Tascam. All the contestants are being treated equally.

Thanks for hanging in there.

What's the scoop on sonic graphs? Is this going to be a listening test only? With all that you've tried to do, I would understand if you didn't want to mess with any analyzing gear, I suppose we could do that ourselves with the files that become available.

Good luck with the test!

<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">I would like to start by graphing tones recorded on the 2" tape. Perhaps MM has some extra on the reel that we could record on.

I'd like to graph a test signal through the 2"--no tape--just to compare to Digi's graph, the recorded test signal off the tape, test signal through HD--no tape--, test signal through HD from tape. Hopefully all that can be done in a few minutes.

What would be the single best test signal to record so we have the most telling graph on the Audio Precision?

<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">Le noises of pink would be a good choice.
All frequencies, all the time, at the same energy.

The trouble is, that unless you have test equipment there at the session, you will not have the Tape machine output analysed and graphed, and that would be the control graph as the tape machine is the 'mother' of the signal test in this case.
