Re: Reducing "hollow" sound in recording

Oh indeed they would, as would quilted bedspreads,tapestries or carpet scraps. Basically anything to damp the reflections off the hard surfaces.

We only suggest moving blankets because (at least here in the USA) they are readily available and relatively inexpensive.

Re: Reducing "hollow" sound in recording

but it turns out buying furniture moving pads in the UK is much harder than in the US. Indeed it seems rather odd. I just did the experiment of searching for "moving blankets" the US amazon.com site and immediately turned up the familiar quilted blanks at ~$75 US for a dozen. Searching the UK amazo...

Re: Newbie Questions on Tracking and Project Rates

I made the (expensive) mistake of cleaning the stylus on my lovely Shure V15-III cart with a sable brush dipped in alcohol. D-oh it removed the tip - it turned out cheaper to buy a new cart that retip the V15-III Sad indeed. My current cartridge is a Grado (chosen primarily because my turntable req...

Re: Newbie Questions on Tracking and Project Rates

As one who has gotten through digitizing most my own ~300 LP collection I can tell you it is a slow processes (I've been at it, in fits and start for about eight years now). For particularly noisy records there is another relatively inexpensive tool called "click repair" that is also worth the inves...

Re: ACX Check fails in 2.4.1

Yea I tried every cache clearing trick I know.
What's really odd is after finally getting the new page to load I could still get the old one by following your link.
But it's the same url!

Re: ACX Check fails in 2.4.1

There is something odd going on with the wiki. If I follow your link it takes me to the older wiki page (the one that has my old version). If I click the History tab I can see your revision. I was able to repeat the issue on my work computer (which I don't think has ever seen the wiki before). Do yo...

Re: ACX Check fails in 2.4.1

Ok so 65M is a factor of 16 between the maxlen and memory allocation. So I'm going to use 30 to provide a buffer for fragmentation or other system dependent issues.

Look for a new version late tomorrow.

Re: ACX Check fails in 2.4.1

What am I doing to the code? Line 58: replace (setq max-len 30000000) with (setq max-len 50000000) And test again to see if it breaks. (This will increase the limit to 18.8 minutes). If it doesn't break make it even bigger. Once we figure out a safe ratio for the two parameters (with probably a fac...

Re: ACX Check fails in 2.4.1

Steve: Is there a Lisp idiom to only call the snd-set-max-audio-mem function if it exists?
Never mind figured it out:

Code: Select all

(if (fboundp (quote snd-set-max-audio-mem)) (snd-set-max-audio-mem 1073741824) )

Re: ACX Check fails in 2.4.1

Hmm the behavior that Koz describes seems to indicate that perhaps nyquist sound memory isn't getting freed up, or is getting fragmented.

Koz: I'll be sending you a test version.
