Seen on the Set of Leno

This actually looks like part of the Recordist Ensemble Stereo pair, which was built to have perfect symmetry and a deep null centered between the lobes.

Noise Awareness Day - April 28

In case you haven't heard, today is Noise Awareness Day.   The health, enjoyment and safety aspects of noise are the focus of Noise Awareness rather than such things as The Art of Noise, which are arguably something good.

I dislike noise in any form: RF noise, acoustic noise, visual noise and even social noise are things I avoid if I can.

Speaking of the noise - the problem kind - we have Herb Singleton's Cross-Spectrum Labs to thank for noise measurements at traffic intersections and other public and industrial places that help municipalities, infrastructure and others be good neighbors.  Here is a shot of Herb Singleton, just out of the Speed Graphic camera done today at Soundwave Research.

Longest winded interview in microphone history

Somehow of interest to a protools blog called Protoolersblog,  this interview was done at Tape Op Con in Tucson, which was an excellent event and one of the most fun and memorable things I did relating to the mic biz.

Floods in Boston area result in excess levels of dihydrogen monoxide

The levels of the chemical di-hydrogen monoxide have increased at an alarming rate in the Boston area over the last two days, mainly caused by flooding of roadways, storm drains, and other surfaces.  Several nearby reservoirs are apparently affected.

Reports of this situation, which appears to affect the entire Massachusetts water system, have been broadcast on nearly all local radio and TV channels.

Please be aware of this and take the necessary precautions if you plan to visit our area.
