    Hey nafta, liking the oldskool garage vibes (but with a modern twist)!

    Good job!

    Not sure, I don’t really find that very chill tbh, the piano has too much of an attack on it, it puts me on edge a bit, more then anything. I think they may of been going for some kind of uplifting chill-out, but missed the mark somewhat unfortunately, as I can hear it has some potential, but that attack on the piano is a bit too jarring for it to chill me out. I never get on with these “best of chill” type chill out tunes anyway, they are always to hype for my taste of chill. If it doesn’t make me feel like I’m melting, it’s not doing it’s job properly. 😉

    peak levels are a lot louder on female voices even after considering different production techniques of 1970s NL and 1980s UK (1980s era Schlager is of less interest to me as it was more often sung in English or French even if the singers were from other European countries – by that time I’d heard plenty enough of it (you had to listen to it in French at my high school)).

    I’ve noticed the same on some VOIP equipment – earlier IP phones and analogue terminal adapters need the sound level to be set correctly otherwise a clipped 8-bit signal gets sent through various DSP at the other end to remove echo, noise, and then put noise back in – that either sounds rough, causes the acoustic shock protection circuits at the telephone set to activate (which goes silent) or gets sent down the line as DTMF tones.

    Newer kit is better at automatically setting levels; especially when designed in a smaller North European country and built (and therefore also used) in a SE Asian nation where the middle classes (in spite of whatever their dominant culture or religions might claim) have a matriarchal society. That is not just a coincidence….. 😉

    I’ve noticed that it’s more socially the norm for female vocalists to really test their range of vocal frequencies, where as male vocalists on the whole tend to side on the “sounding cool” area of singing, hence sticking to one or two octaves, maybe three at most (unless they are a proper skilled singer), and with the relative lack of pitch variation, there’s going to be less likelihood of DB spikes due to spectral dynamic fluctuations,even after being passed through a compressor.

    However, I think it’s more likely to do with the frequency range male and female vocals fall into. Female vocals are inherently higher pitched then males, and you can get away with compressing higher frequencies (to a certain point) a bit more then lower ones, without totally wrecking the waveform, and in modern day pop music, where they can compress, they will.

    Just sold a Bose 502C to an Ex-BBC sound engineer, who is currently a pastor at Maidenhead’s Methodist church. I couldn’t help but laugh after you telling me about the BT guys all either turning to drugs or god (or something along them lines, no pun intended). Seems like a really nice chap, just maybe a tad lonely, as you’d get a hell of a back story with the supposedly simplest of calls to him.

    He’s offered me advice on any equipment I have, what I thought was above and beyond for someone purely just buying a relatively cheap item off us. It feels like, he feels like, his expertise is being wasted, and I can see why. He’s currently trying to set up the sound equipment for 3 choir singers and 3 gospel singers, and it’s causing him all kinds of problems, as in his words, the choir singers don’t know what this “thing called a mic” is doing in front of them, and sonically matching up them to the gospel guys and gals who are “used to shouting into an sm58” is his equivalent of hell. :laugh_at:

    I could hear the dial tone, could connect to another phone, but pressing the seize button, would not seize the line on either of the two lines that run through the unit …

    were it not for work pressures and stuff I have to do at home added to the exorbitant cost of trains I would get the train to London and try and help you set this up…

    Only just noticed this. What is this “BT converter”, and what is at the other end of it? if the socket it plugs into is an RJ11 (USA telephone socket; like an RJ45 network socket but smaller) its use in the UK normally an indication that the other end of the wire goes to a PABX of some sort or a VOIP ATA (analogue terminal adaptor) rather than directly to an NTTP (the main telephone socket).

    If it has a BT socket for the phone to plug into and a BT plug at the other end to get “cheap calls from Talk Talk” (which would be an odd thing to connect to an internal phone system) it is a device that dials a code before the main phone number; and may have been left connected by mistake.

    Some variants of these devices are popular with chaps who collect and restore the old style “small” PABX with relays, selectors etc (it will fill up an entire large shed) to interface “modern” tone dialling phones to the old equipment. There is one lad about your age who lives in London, although the other side of the river, who might be able to make use of it..

    As far as I can work out it’s just to change the size of the plug from the BT standard to the smaller one.

    Hi TheDane, welcome to partyvibe! I’ve been to Denmark once before, and although I was only there for 3 days I think, I thought it was a really lovely county very scenic with it’s old historical looking buildings (in Copenhagen) and the big river. Also I thought I’d accidentally arrived the same time as the tour de france bike race, but no, it turns out EVERYONE rides a bike xD.

    I may be going again either this year or next I think, I have like 3 different friends out there in different places, I have visited one (Sinner off of here) and will go up to the other end from Copenhagen next time to aarhus. My friend who I met maybe 8-10 years ago online whilst playing computer games lives there. He has visited me in England and stayed t mine before, so now it’s my turn to go and visit him. he wants me to smuggle him over a ton of mature English cheddar cheese as it’s soso expensive in Denmark compared to here (as it’s made here) What we pay like £3 for, it’s like £10-£20 I’m told!

    And for the record, yes I actually mean the edible cheddar cheese, and not cheese skunk ganja lol.

    Hey bud, what sites did you used to frequent if you don’t mind me asking? (there’s been quite a few rave forums bite the dust in the last few years, It’s quite sad tbh. 🙁

    Hey welcome to the site, your best bet these days is getting on facebook and searching for sound systems in your local area as this is how a vast number of sound systems organize things these days.

    best of luck!

    That’s not youtube, that’s a website about the london underground called “yourtube”

    welcome to the site, you can be genuine and explain why it is you’re posting a link to a site dedicated to the london underground and no one would think any less of you then if you actually posted your youtube page on here. In fact, I’m sure a few people would even be more interested as to what it’s all about then a youtube channel, as there’s some pretty decent pics on there! Do tell what it’s all in aid of, or is it just a hobby?

    Oh and by extension, I mean like if it was connected to an outside line you’d have to dial 9 to get out. AFAIK it’s just an internal system for calling different parts of the building, but run through the main building phone network. We have a separate set of phones for calling outside lines.

    The last multimeter I had was one I made at college, and it never fully worked. xD

    We do have a ton of spare cat 5 and 6 cables though I think.

    OK I tried to test this out, but it’s not tapping into the line when I press the button that should make it do that. The phone is working as normal when going through it, it’s just not splitting the line to the audio out. It’s a talktalk line with a BT converter in the socket, would this be the problem do you think? I was also doing it from an internal extension and not an outside line, what afaik should work just the same.

    Ah nice thanks for the info, that settles a lot. I’ll just put it up for sale as is, and be done with it.

    On another note, not sure if you’ve seen Breaking Bad (I’d suggest you stream it if not!) but the “eurotash” guy looks like walter white before he geos mental and starts killing everyone to make his meth empire bigger (who coincidentally, was previously a chemistry teacher in the story).

    I’ve just put one of these up for sale as well!

    Sonifex RB-DS2 Stereo Delay Synchroniser and Time-Zone Delay

    Seems ridiculously priced for what it does imo (more then £1000 new!), but I guess it’s all about accuracy and versatility (and sound quality ofc) …

    Considering I bought an analog delay unit of ebay for £50 :laugh_at:. Although mine only does a few ms up to a second or two of delay, and has no timezone function built in lol. (I jest ofc)

    Unfortunately they all have the same lettering on them “HY-02-Digital” afaik, I also downloaded the manual, to no avail. I Google’d it and all the different versions I’ve seen have the exact same markings! O.o

    It is the dual version, I’ve worked out that much, I’m also assuming it’s not the euro chip version due to the fact it was from a UK install (I’m assuming the Euro card is for connection to European telephone sockets). The presents or absence of a ringing detector is what I’m really not sure about though.

    I’m not sure how much of a difference this would make for the asking price, even if it’s not that much, I’d like to give a full description of it, not only to help out the buyer, but also possibly increase my chance of getting a sale, as someone might specifically be looking for one with a ringing detector, but may be turned off if I can’t confirm it has one or not (or visaversa possibly).

    First you must try to find out why you are self sabotaging your relationships…

    Do you panic and make bad decisions because of this? Do you have a short fuse and get angry easily?

    You must sit and think what happens, think about HOW you are making these same mistakes and what exactly you are doing to mess up the relationships, then when you know what it is you’re doing, you may be able to work out why you are doing this, then from there you can work on not doing the same things over and over. Without knowing the why, it’d hard to resolve what ever issues it is you have, so you must search for this answer.
