That’s the output desk, yeah? How are you liking it?


#2799

Indeed.

Really liking it so far. Really big (which is what I wanted), so there’s plenty of ‘space’ to work on. Then lots of great details/perks in how it’s designed (the front rack bits are reversible, the shelf can be further in or out, etc…).

Since you all asked… video edit is done and out:

Enjoy…

20 characters of Ray!

Finished modifying my old rev1 weevil module to fit in the new super shallow Bugbrand frames so decided to take a celebratory pic!


#2803

i’ve been meaning to get a proper cassette deck for a while, and it finally happened! the fact that i can actually listen to tapes now is really just a small part of the excitement, i’m having a newly rediscovered love for that era’s designs (i kinda want to redo my living room to have a couple of vintage audio devices as the center piece). and i need to go back to the store and just spend a good hour there looking at everything they have. and maybe get a walkman too (sorry for a wall of text - had to share my excitement here as my partner has been uncharacteristically unsupportive - “you can just listen to music on your iphone, no?”).


#2804

I have this receiver which I love

https://audioportal.hi-fi.ru/attachment.php?attachmentid=86161&d=1336120178

The only thing I don’t love is that when I bought it, the person didn’t have the remote, and I haven’t been able to find anything that doesn’t look like a hacky mess and cost 80 bucks. Do you (or anyone else) have any experience about programming (new) universal remotes to work with older audio equipment like this?


#2805

I love that design era/phase. There was an Akai Casette Deck with similar color and interface design that I wanted so bad for about a year until I just ended up with something from Craigslist. It does the job, but dang was that Akai cool looking.

I’m trying to find out what model it was.

Found:


#2806

sorry, no idea how to go about it! (and i sorta like the fact mine doesn’t have a remote : )

@bookmil - beautiful! love the motorized front panels.


#2807

That’s a beautiful deck! Been meaning to get a decent cassette deck myself… all I have is some Walkman and a crappy portable deck that doesn’t sound too good. You should def get a Walkman if you’re getting a good amount of tapes, I stopped using my iPhone for music and started listening to entire albums again on my work commute - plus you hear all the electronic interference as you move around which can sometimes be a weird bonus :grin:


#2808

i have a bunch of old tapes, some are not properly labelled, half of the fun will be finding out what’s actually on them :slight_smile: but yeah, that’s the plan for walkman, takes me about 30 min to walk from work, so basically one side. i think having to choose ahead of time what to listen to as opposed to being paralyzed by choice will make for more mindful listening too.


#2809

The giant milled aluminum knobs and analog VU meters on my dad’s Pioneer and Teac hifi gear were definitely a big part of my early (as in “in diapers”) love affair with recorded music.


#2810

‘having to choose ahead of time what to listen to as opposed to being paralyzed by choice will make for more mindful listening too.’

Yes! I tend to take two tapes with me just in case my mood changes though. Generally something acid-y along with whatever I’ve chosen for the day :+1:


#2811

I finally am able to use all of my modules together! :grin:

What do I do now :sweat_smile:


#2812

Wonderful, just wonderful


#2813

Thank you :slight_smile:

I’ll have a recording of some kind up this weekend!


#2816

Mine doesn’t, so they aren’t all that way!


#2817

Got a moon lamp for evening patching.


#2818

Got tired of loose ribbon cables that were too short. I2C was makin’ me crazy! Now to plug it all in and see if it works…

Edit:
Well, it boots. That’s a start!

Now to update some firmwares…


#2819

Very interesting to see the back of a system with lots of I2C connections, I knew it was possible but it never occurred to me just how awkward it would be to wire up!

What is the huge module in the top left with a big screen and a bunch of USB ports?
