Here's "Just Friends".

Next month we will be tracking the bulk of the charts written for these sessions that were never recorded by Parker, for an upcoming album. Very exciting stuff!
Nice strings.

It is suppose to be a swinging version of Stevie Wonder's "Isn't She Lovely".

The bit where you don't hear a melody or a solo is where the singer will be.
Whatever happened to this record?

Where can we hear it? Was it ever finished?

AB stereo bar made from 2 selfie sticks

Being a DIY sort of guy, I found a use for 2 of the telescopic "selfie sticks" you can buy cheaply these days. Instead of using them to take and post inane pics of self on Facebook, why not make an infinitely adjustable AB stereo bar instead !

I had a Chinese copy of a Manfrotto Dado half-sphere (the red object supporting the 2 arms) and with the use of a few thread adapters I was able to screw the selfie sticks into the Dado ball, attach another 3/8 to 5/8 adapter underneath to attach it to a mic stand.

Because the selfie stick uses typical camera 1/4" thread for the ends, I found some 1/4 to 3/8 adapter bushes to allow me to fit the Rycote supports. The pictures tell the rest of the story.

Good points:
* infinitely variable size, because of the telescopic (like car radio antenna) segments you can pull out exactly as much as you require to provide your desired AB dimensions (no more long bar required even if you want a short one)
* cheap, easy to make, lightweight, ends have adjustment via finger clamp and thumbwheel to point your mic where required, can be dismantled for transporting, maximum extension is 1.7 metres ! You could even add a 3rd stick out front and made a Decca Tree (the easy variability of lengths lends itself to Decca Tree experimentation, and it's lighter than most all other commercial Tree designs )!

Bad points: as made, the minimum width is 50cm, which may be a little too wide...I'm planning to perhaps shorten it to give me a 35 cm minimum width
At full stretch (1.7 metres) the ends sag a little...but most folks wouldn't require such extreme width ?

OK, now for some photos....

This is my 1st post in this forum. Here goes:
The venue was a very resonant underground dance studio.
The gig was acoustic, but the tablas (and vocals in 1 tune) needed to be amplified. For the audience, and as monitoring for the band during the louder parts.
This was especially challenging, as the little P.A. system needed to be BEHIND the musicians.
Mics used were: OHs Beyer MC930, kick M88TG, snare Revox 3500, toms Beyer TG D58c, Tablas C414, guitar M160, sax player had a wireless system, rooms MG UM70s,
vocals MD441.
Everything was recorded post-preamp via the A&H Qu16.
Monitoring was through a pair of Beyer DT770.

Been awhile since we've had any posts in this thread.

My truck is working out well as a mixing room. Still need to get some mechanical stuff addressed, but it runs. Once I can find a buyer for this big ass Soundtracs console, I will replace it with the DM2000 that I have. And will be upgrading the TV to a real computer monitor or two, and adding a pair of Presonus Sceptre S6s next to the Genelecs.

Working on last weekend's symphony recording. Tulsa Symphony Orchestra: Mozart's Overture from the Magic Flute, Gandolfi's Impressions from the Garden of Cosmic Speculation, and selections from Prokofiev's Romeo and Juliet.

Here are some pictures of our recording trucks!

They both have 4 pro tools with 128 channels each. We have 128 channels of Andiamo preamps, 48 Millenias, 48 Grace Design.

Now they both have a surround Focal monitors setup, both corrected with Trinnov.

D-Command consoles and a bunch of AAX DSP plugins.

It's fun!

Remote Concert Rig

This is what I use when recording remotely for 16 channels (or less). 2 ATI 8MX2 Preamps and 2 JoeCo BBR1's, and 128GB SD cards! I work for a company specializing in recording mostly classical music on location.

Direct Outs from the ATI pre's go into the primary JoeCo, then are passively sent into the Backup JoeCo and that's it! It is super convenient and useful for most concert recordings that don't require the use of a computer.

Microphones vary based on the recording project, but all the good stuff (Sennheiser, Schoeps, DPA, etc..)

I got this cool little maranta pmd661 with a pair of Scheps that just STONG. Very much in love with that tiny little setup - did Carnegie hall master classes with that and a soundevices rig and some sure ksm141’s and it was really stellar. I love that marantz thing. The built in stereo condensers are actually fantastic! Very 3d sound actually

Very cool! Can I ask how you get most of your work with these big rigs? Very cool

Are you splitting the signal between the JoeCos before the recorders, like with Ys or a custom loom, or are you running the "return" outs from each channel of the first machine into the inputs of the 2nd?

thx

Those JoeCo recorders have six DB25 connectors, three each for inputs and outputs in 8 channel groups. The input channels get sent directly to the outputs for easy redundant recording.

Mostly TV Show, live broadcast of music show, festival or big musical events. Some award show too. All kind of different stuff. 90% music and maybe 10% comedians and others things.

Thank you for you interest!!

Sorry I wasn't a little more clear, but what JCBigler said. No special y-cables or looms here.

ATI Direct Outs -> Primary JoeCo Inputs on DB25, then audio from Primary JoeCo outputs on DB25 -> Secondary JoeCo Inputs on DB25.

So the audio must pass through the Primary JoeCo to hit the Secondary. It doesn't worry me because they are so stable.

Maybe I’m remembering wrong, but I thought I read that the output from the audio output from a JoeCo BBR1 would continue to output even if it lost power..? Which would mean that it’s a passive split, before the electronics in the JoeCo box.

But maybe I’m remembering wrong.

You are indeed correct. Yes, it is a passive split for the exact reason you described. The backup JoeCo stays intact and your clients will get the recording!

Do you use the very cool JoeCo Remotes? If not, you guys should check them out. They provide hi-def metering and remote control of all functions over WiFi to an iPad; even house-keeping like track arming, track naming, all on-board menu stuff.

I currently use Waves Tracks Live as a bit-bucket on a MacBook Pro as as backup recorder and it works fine, no issues. But I am thinking of getting a second BBR64-Dante as my backup machine; such a stable device.

Hey there,

Thanks for reaching out! I actually have not experimented with the remotes. Not that I don't think their useful, but I just got used to the metering on the unit after using it so many times. It's something I've been looking into though! Would love to eventually use the Dante version!
