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...

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...  >:(

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...

New Mic
« on: March 04, 2017, 06:50:55 AM »
got a new mic. I was using a Rode NT1A but I won a gift voucher from Amazon for £35. This mic, an AKG P5 (Perception) was given a good review. Some reviewers rated it higher than the Shure 58.
So I used my voucher and made a purchase. It was £36 with free postage so I figured I'd got a deal.
I am a condenser mic user for vocals in the studio but I have to say my first few recordings with this mic blew me away. It's noe my main microphone and, until I get another, will remain so. I shall still keep the Rode as I record other singers with that one.
Here's a 'well known' example of the AKG (attached)
What a pity we can't know in advance who the spoiling minority are!

Nice Dave and a good score . I just a new mic as well and it's Dynamic from my poormans test it's pretty good . From what I'm reading and I could wrong on points but dynamic Mics or mine as it says is designed specifically for vocals and live performance . What I'm taking away from is the frequency response db's and KHz -Hz
Not sure but my mic seems to give the vocals more air , this might be in my head but I think the Mics through better then the condensers either way it's a great add in to the mic locker ;) enjoy your new mic :)
