You are just the man I am looking for.

I have this 150' 32-pair copper snake, MAAS connectors, breakout boxes, in two Pelican 1600 cases. Super high quality, Jensen trafos. Each case weighs about 50 pounds. For sale at a good price.

It got replaced by this ridiculously small reeler of wire that allows my control room to be anywhere I want it, 128 channels at 24/96k. Just horrible.

Fiber optics? Sure. Control room can be 10 kilometers away, meet in the middle for lunch.

Give yourself some time to get the feel of this sleepy little corner of GS, with all its characters and foibles...it just might grow on you!

It's fine, Paul.

Looked back and you only have 9 posts and 3 are chastising Plush in pretty over the top ways. It seems obsessive to me. Take a deep breath. It's all good.

I kind of enjoy Plush's style. He has an artistic flamboyance to him.

I don't know that kook who wrote that garbage and I have, long ago, blocked him here.

It is laughable that I am churning this thread for publicity, or because I am insecure, or because I don't have any work. I occasionally post for education and fun.

STATUS: Fully booked every day from now until the end of October.
STATUS UPDATE: Doing all the recording at The Ravinia Festival, America's oldest and largest summer music festival.

Ravinia is the summer home of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra.

Ravinia looks like a nice gig to have !

Plush (or anyone else): do you have a link to the software that generates the sort of stage plot diagrams shown in your first photo ? I'm guessing it's some sort of drag and drop facility, which also lets you enter stage dimensions, player seating, risers, walkways etc ?

I'm always impressed when I'm given one of these printouts by stage managers, and it helps with plotting out mic locations (and cable length runs, if the diagram is to scale) well ahead of concert date.

......And almost as important....that is THE jacket!

I've started to dress tidier on sessions these days, following Plush's approach of being better dressed than the conductor! Gone are the braces (suspenders) etc. I change into smarter attire after lifting and lugging and setting up. It makes you feel better too!

My personal take on this is that if you’ve got enough runs on the board (literally and metaphorically if we consider GS as a ‘board’ in the bulletin board sense, LOL!) and you’ve been featured in a magazine catering to your trade, you have the right to share it and indulge in any consequent discussions. Nobody is being forced to read this or any other thread. And sharing it amongst your peers is not really promotion; they’re unlikely to be giving you work, in fact, they’re more likely to be your competition and trying to get an insight into your methods and thinking.

One thing I know for sure: if I’d been featured in Resolution or similar I’d be sharing the heck out of it on social media and keenly answering each and every question because if someone wanted to know about me, my methods or opinions, they’ve come to the right person because I’m the world expert on ‘me’, LOL!

From time to time people get up my nose here, but then I remember that I’m reading basic text void of the nuances of speech and character. And when you meet these people in person, they are often quite different than the impression created in text.

FWIW, similar assumption on prominence and qualification is what’s led to our current leadership crisis in the US.

That IS quite a crisis at present, at least from this non-American’s point of view.

Plush 2020?

At least the USA will get better funding for the arts...

No bad political analogies here please.

The crass and insecure criticism I have received from one poster is quite humorous. I don't need to promote here. I am fully booked every day through the end of October.

In this thread I report about my methods of working and the new methods I've learned about as well. I talk about the research topics which interest me.

I get hundreds of PM messages here on GS and I try to answer each message.
People write asking for my recommendations, an opinion, to solve a problem; and then specifically about my expertise in Nagra and Stellavox recorders.

I acquire equipment and do a light report on it. I'm happy to say that this summer I added new location monitoring that has helped me tremendously. I acquired a pair of Meyer Sound AMIE monitors and they are all revealing. Such a great tool.

Just today I recorded an incredible new record of super famous household name artists with just a Mackie mixer and a Lexicon reverb box. ( and some good mics)

I went back to basics and instead of multi-track, I mixed the whole thing direct to stereo with a 6 channel Mackie.

That is worth reporting.

i did a series of drum clinics with bill bruford (king crimson) and will kennedy (yellowjackets): guess who was dressed in a yellow jacket, the colour perfectly matching his drum kit... :-)

sorry for off topic comment - but jackets do matter!

Plush reminds me of Tony Bongiovi at times. Just because they're not as humble as we might think is "appropriate", doesn't mean they aren't very good at what they do.

In person I am quite humble. I let my sounds speak for me.

I am, however, interested in expressing a considered point of view. An informed opinion. Guessing is not good enough. A point of view informed by research, listening, and experimentation. I enjoy meeting accomplished people and listening to what they have to say.

I am, like many, susceptible to marketing claims in recording and about equipment. Then I weigh the claims against my experience.

Recently, those I have mentored are going on to high achievement in recording at the New World Symphony and the Aspen Music Festival.

I look outside of the US for leadership and innovation in classical recording. Principally to Germany, the Netherlands and Switzerland.

That is the Micstacy. Always a great unit.

Microphones on this recording are mostly Schoeps with swivel mounts--CMC64. Add in about 6 MKH 8040 and also some AKG 451.

I only used 24 channels for this recording. Recorded to a Tascam X48 @24/96.

thx! may i ask about the 451's? did they get used on percussion? if using akg's, i mostly favour the 460/480's (in general) compared to the 451's but i assume they were chosen on purpose/due to their specific fr?

Yes, AKG 451 (quite old ones) were on percussion. Big percussion battery and 2 xylophones on stage. I also like Shure KSM137 on perc. Their diaphragm is very thin and responsive to transients. AKG offered an excellent sound.
