And I don't have computer work to do till Monday or Tuesday.  Is it okay if I work on some music stuff this weekend?   ???

Okay, I've replaced both tie rod ends and realigned one car (and cleaned brake pads and caliper).  Replaced the power steering line in another.  And fixed the radio (for the wife) in another.  Cold, wet, sore, and tired.

So, since I couldn't work, I came in and spent an hour warming up.  And then decided I wanted to hear the new speakers.  Have to say, I'm very pleased with them.  Way more volume than I need, and the sound is great.  I'll be ordering another pair...

But, after spending a while getting all dressed up, and tools and jacks together, I got started on the vehicles.  But, at +4 and wind at 40mph gusting to 50, it didn't take long crawling around on the snowy/icy driveway to just give it up.  Maybe tomorrow...

I'm thinking that's a likely scenario, Neil.  I know that's what I need to be doing...

Do you think someone is trying to tell you to just stay home and make music?? :P
 

Joom

January 17, 2018, 02:22:59 PM
Well, the fun never ends.  Few miles down the road this morning and caught a chunk of ice - took out a tie rod end on the car I just did an alignment on the other day.  Came home and got another, and the second corner I came to the power steering line came apart.  Mechanic day...  >:(

I look forward to the report Mr. J!  8)

That's what I thought, Neil.  All about presentation.  ;)

I do wish they had some kind of protective screen or mesh over the speakers.  Can't wait to see how they sound...

Home again.  Didn't get the network/wi-fi finished at the school, have to go back again Thursday.

Sampson monitors are here, hopefully I can get them set up tomorrow and test them out on a mix I need to do.  They look good...
 

Joom

January 15, 2018, 09:34:48 PM
I can relate, Smurf.  Yesterday I made it 10-12 miles at 20mph before I turned around and came back.  Icy ruts pulling the car all over, and twice pulled me onto the center line with semi's coming the other way.  Scary...
 

Smurf

January 15, 2018, 09:25:38 PM
Just had to turn around & come home from my sleep study tonight....super bad roads + ice + nothing but hills, valleys and drop-offs for 18 miles of the trip....no thanks! :P
 

Joom

January 15, 2018, 07:38:17 PM
Sampson monitors are supposed to be here UPS tomorrow sometime.  I have to go do a network job at a school, so I won't get to try them out till Wednesday.  But I have some mixing to do, so I'll let y'all know how they work...
 

Joom

Crazy snow storm today.  Going to have to plow, shovel, and scoop.  And probably again tomorrow...  >:(
 

Joom

January 13, 2018, 10:07:33 PM
I know, right?  I used to climb right in there.  Not anymore.

Two years ago I had to pull the exhaust manifold and some other things just to get to the back 3 plugs on one of the cars just to do a tuneup.
 

neilmac

January 13, 2018, 10:04:41 PM
I hear ya Joom...our old 1/2 tons you could climb in beside the engine and almost close the hood,,, now you have to almost remove the motor to change a fan belt lol
 

Joom

January 13, 2018, 09:15:48 PM
I've got a pile of tools and testers that weren't even thought of 50 years ago.  Aside from basic drive train axle stuff, you have to start with an OBD tester just to know what might be going on.

I've always said I'd love to have a 1965 'anything' in good shape to fix up and drive...
 

Joom

January 13, 2018, 09:11:19 PM
Things have definitely changed a lot from back in the day of simple carburetors and distributors with points, Buster.  I could fix most things on the road with a few tools.  Not any more...
 

buster

January 13, 2018, 08:16:27 PM
You guys are doing well. The 1st car I owned I took out the engine and gearbox, removed all the parts, had the engine o'hauled, put it all back in, re-timed it and drove it away. The new truck, I can't name a single thing under the hood.
 

Joom

January 13, 2018, 05:12:12 PM
And yeah, garage and pole barn, both full of motorcycles and dirt bikes, mowers, and a ton of other crap.  Been promising myself to clean them out for a long time and give myself a work area...
 

Joom

January 13, 2018, 05:10:25 PM
Same here, Red.  Back in the 70's before I got into computers I was a licensed mechanic, and I still refuse to pay somebody else to do what I can do.  Most of the time...

RedJoker

I'm with you Joom. I do all our car maintenance, have a 3 car garage and can't park a single car in it.  :/
 

Joom

January 13, 2018, 04:29:07 PM
Only -2 here today, not too cold.  But just finished 3 hours laying on ice doing a front end alignment on one of the cars.  That got cold.  Really need to clean out the garage...
 

Joom

January 12, 2018, 05:54:28 PM
Oh, don't say that, G.  I've been blaming bad monitors for bad sounding tunes...  ::)

The sound coming through also makes a difference so you'll want get my latest CD to experience those monitors just right... :D
 

Joom

January 12, 2018, 02:47:57 PM
Good point, White.  Also what the monitors are setting on can affect the sound (vibration, etc.), as well as things place in front of them...

January 12, 2018, 08:43:06 AM
Just a small point to monitor (pun intended). Check the location you will use the monitors is correct for them. That is to say, against a wall changes the sound, dramatically!

makes some fine stuff. I have been happy with everything I own. 8)
 

Smurf

January 11, 2018, 07:05:17 PM
Yeah they are expensive Red, but all the "reviews", both pro and everyday user, like them. I have never heard them myself, but I like the IK Multi stuff that I have.

I am happy with my Fostex PM641, 04's, and 6301's, so I am not looking ATM! :P

And no matter what you read on the net, Behringer

I got my son the Behringer MS20 monitors for xmas. I have them too. We use the  optical connection. great soudn for a good price.
 

Joom

January 11, 2018, 06:33:24 PM
Yup.  The M30's are supposed to be $80, but they just came out a few months ago and they're cheaper right now.  Either way, big difference.  We'll see if they're worth it.  Sometimes good things happen...  :)
