I'm glad you DID post it, Les.
chaotic, but entertaining nonetheless drunken

Sorry I haven't posted any shows in a few weeks, I'll get around to that soon. In the mean time, here is a photo of the mic that I built for the show. Now I will no longer have to fiddle with intermittent problems and gain/noise issues related to the headset mic.

Did you build this, Les? It looks neat. How big is it? How does it solve the problems you were having?

Yes I built it, it's only about six inches long, just one chip and some discretes. It's just a mic preamp and amp and a limited simple pan circuit going to an 1/8" jack. Nothing special, but it's a big deal to me because I've had four months of problems with the headset mic.

For one thing, it's an area mic, or whatever the term is, so I can have guests on the show without having mic problems. Also the headset mic would intermittently go out of service at the worst moments and require a reboot to fix it. Plus the headset mic is well a headset mic and as such is not designed to function as an area mic.

What is really needed is a mic/mixer/stand solution but that's not in the budget for a while, so this little homebrew mic is being very helpful.

Here is tonight's show which is entirely based on the Credit Card Synth that I'm working on. It is a BS+KS minimal circuit that will fit on a PCB the size of a credit card.

Beware! HUGE volume spikes are in this recording, please do not listen with headphones at the peril of your ears! I've got to build a mixer with compression or build compression into these circuits somehow, but for now beware!

Enjoy

Les

Announcement: Inventor's Inventions will now become an unscheduled show instead of a twice monthly scheduled show. This is primarily due to the hectic nature of doing two shows (the other is the Les Hall Show), which has really added a bit of stress to my life. I need to chill out a bit more...

chill I need a chill pill...

I find that doing a Thursday show, a Tuesday show, and another Thursday show basically makes for three shows in a week period which is a bit much. Also it is a bit difficult to come up with material for both shows. But fear not, Inventor's Inventions will be on the air occasionally as enough techie material develops.

You should invent something to prevent it. Laughing

Yeah chill, Les, you've earned it! I'm very impressed with your stamina, producing all these shows.
