Downward expansion gives a more subtle fading down of the noise floor instead of the abrupt on/off of a noise gate.

I defer to those more knowledgeable but can't the same response be achieved via setting the attack, hold, and release values on the gate?

Been a few times in the last few days the forum just hasn't loaded for me when everything else on the internet works...having hosting troubles?

And it was nice seeing you and Henry there, too, even though I was swamped with my sessions and never got to yours.

Yeah, that's the downside to being part of the planning committee, not enough time left over to see other sessions, or even much of the show floor. Fortunately I don't feel driven to see everything in the exhibit hall anymore so an hour here and there is ok. It was great meeting you in meatspace. Did you go to the President's reception? Since I was commuting to home I didn't want to hang out from 6pm to 10pm to go to a cocktail party then drive home at midnight. Sorry I missed seeing Agnieska and Valery get welcomed into their new roles.

Hi Folks,

Last summer I used an MR18 for about 15 shows in an outdoor pavilion with a late afternoon start,
and 5 shows from noon to 2:30PM.
For part of the time the mixer was in the direct sun, but mostly was shaded.
It got pretty warm but worked fine.
For extra air flow, I use two bits of wood, 25mm x 25mm x 200mm to lift it up off the stage or mix table.
I would not be surprised to hear about one being in direct sun on a black stage in the summer having issues.

An ASUS AC68 router was up in the rafters where it was pretty warm, but always in the shade.
It also got warm, and kept working.

An Ipad in the sun did stop working till it was cooled off in the shade for about five minutes.
Always have a spare tablet!

Thanks and good health,  Weogo

All, I was in a bar last night and saw these speakers mounted around the place.  Does anyone know what brand these are? Hopefully you can make it out from the photo.

Regards to the list,
Roger

My Case Builder. This is a company that lets you design foam inserts for cases online and they cut the foam for you.

The amazing thing to me is that in their system there is no difference in cost due to complexity of foam design. One cutout or a hundred, if you can design it using their software (easy on a laptop, horrible on an iPad IME), it's all the same price.

I bought a few of their cases with inserts last year (I think called Seafoam or Seabreeze or something like that --Seahorse!) and also replaced all the deteriorating foam in my SKB mic boxes (I like the stiffer stuff- expanded polyethylene?) and it's all good. Easy process, quick shipping.

Depending on which stiff foam you are referring to that they had previously, and depending on which foam they had this year, last year they had 3 foams: The soft stuff that deteriorates; the expanded polyethylene like is used with Meyer speaker and other (X32's have it) shipments (don't know how else to describe it) which doesn't seem to deteriorate at all 30 years later, and a very nice grey foam that was in between in stiffness. The last one felt and looked really nice but was about a third more cost IIRC. The first two were about equal in price.

Steve, the owner, was who was staffing the booth most of the time both years, and he seemed like a pretty helpful and friendly person.

Would recommend.

Thanks for these reports, Mac. Even though I'll never use these products, it's nice to hear about the state of the art. And it was nice seeing you and Henry there, too, even though I was swamped with my sessions and never got to yours.

Where does everyone find using downward expansion is better than using tradition gates and why?

If you ever wind up in a situation where there are major WiFi problems, having a 2nd rack mixer isn't going to help. 

Unless you take to each show the appropriate cabling to enable hardwiring from mixer to iPad as back-up - as I always do.

Since AES and NAB NY were next door to each other at JJCC this week the 2 associations made a mutually beneficial agreement to allow exhibit floor access to anyone with either badge. At NAB I stopped by My Case Builder. This is a company that lets you design foam inserts for cases online and they cut the foam for you. They have added a softer foam that is about as hard as the pluck foam you get from Pelican which is nicer that the very stiff foam they had previously. Just giving the site a quick look it seems like my cases (Pelican 1400) would be about $100 each for custom cut foam inserts.

I stopped by their booth at InfoComm and chatted.  I like what they're doing as well.

Best regards,

John
