it would prob have to be hdf with veneer.. perhaps a long thin piece of oak may warp but I think I will try this and ebonise the oak to black with some rusty nails in vinegar..

I wonder if resonant values would come into play with a larger type of lens like the 2395

NICE!

it's the angle of the mixer mounting baffle fixed, or adjustable?

It is fixed but I did a lot of experiments with height before with cardboard boxes and simulated a few angles in the CAD app. So it fits perfect to my body/elbow height. The miter joint (where top and mixer board collide) was probably the most challenging part in the making.

Nothing beats German engineering.

I completely agree, woodworking details can be extremely unforgiving....

I tried making some boxes with half blind dovetails once before....
think on the brighter side, at least you did not decide on secret dovetails!

While I was in the neighborhood, I had a peek (or listen?) at the Anechoic Chamber at Microsoft. http://gizmodo.com/5372268/microsoft...nd-goes-to-die

Hey Paul I love your shirt!

What kind of material is used to create the Anechoic Chamber?

Best Regards,

It's solid fiberglass blocks cut into shape covered by a fiberglass cloth covered by a stainless wire mesh that's grounded to reduce RFI.

The "floor" is a tensioned wire grid with the same acoustical blocks below it. It's kinda bouncy.

The teeny-tiny mic on the stand is about 35 grand-it has ultra low noise floor electronics.

At most, the space is 12 feet wide.

Awesome Paul, thanks for posting. I like the t-shirt too.

Did the anechoic chamber make your ears hurt? I've never been in one, but have heard the silence is "deafening".

While it is quiet, I was chatting with my guide and didn't have any time to stand there in silence. I did notice the touch of tinnitus I have. I'm sure with enough time in there I'd start hearing things.

I picked up a GSA isolator recently, and swapped it in where my Comelentric 4-way iso/crossover was above the mixer. I had some giant blue knobs laying around so I put them on for fun.

Experimental console

Been working on a new console design since I had to sell my old one (too big for the new apartment).

This is a mock up, built quick 'n' dirty out of pine to test out the feel. I haven't seen any consoles with the mixer above the decks before and I'd always thought it could work. After all, you spend most of time with your hands on the decks, not on the mixer, so why is the mixer always in front? The obvious reason is because having to reach *over* the turntables is more dangerous than reaching over a mixer. So, a lot depends on getting the placement of the mixer right.

So far, this is working great. I love the feel of having the mixer and isolator at chest height. The height of the turntables is 36" right now and the mixer is 12" above that (measured to the bottom of the turntables). 12" feels like a good amount of space: the mixer isn't too high and yet there's still room to change records without banging them against the underside of the mixer shelf.

I think I'll raise the height of the whole thing a few inches in the next version. The turntables feel a little lower than I like them. Will have to see if this makes the mixer too high, or if I'll have to decrease the 12" between TTs and mixer.

One other issue is that the headphone cord now hangs down dangerously close to the tonearms when mixing. So, I'll need to run an extension cable around the back and up underneath so the phones can plug into a jack mounted on the turntables' level.

It shows up for me (and looks like its been resized since this morning).

Only issue I see with the mixer above is your headphone cord dangling against a tonearm. Not sure if it would really be an issue, but you could always route an extension cable somewhere out of the way and plug the phones into that.

FYI, I have my decks at 40" and love never having to bend at the waist.

You're right about the headphone cord issue. And yes, an extension cable is my plan.

Is 40" your turntables' platter height, or the height of what they're sitting on?
