This coming Saturday is my understanding. I didn't notice that the date was wrong. 3GGG I note that you will be coming later, no problems. Bring some music, preferably of acoustic origin so we have something we can relate to.

Hi Keith

Thanks for your hospitality last Saturday mate and for the nice audition of your gear. I learn't a bit that day (hope you didn't mind the photos I took) and I'll likely try some of your ideas myself.

Next time I'll bring my own music selections!!! :-)

Cheers and thanks again.

Hi All
The next AES meeting will be on the subject of designing woofer drivers. The presenter is Micheal Barabasz of Lorantz Audio, a Melbourne company. The company started after Plessey Rola ceased making drivers, and they acquired some of the dies/tooling from the Rola plant.

Micheal is into Finite Element Modelling, so even though the company is small it has some interlectual clout, and manufacturing processes are up to date with CNC machinery.

Tuesday Aug 16th, Astoria Room, Astor Hotel, 437 Pulteny St (near Gilles St)
Meeting starts at 7.30 but you are welcome to join the ctee for a counter tea from 6.00pm. This tends to be where we do our socialising.

The forum software seems to be acting up as I cannot move the cursor while typing.

Cheers

Keith

Default Next meeting, Adelaide section, AES

I don't know if anyone reads this thread as things are rather quiet. I had hoped that by posting info on AES meetings someone may have found something of interest. The next meeting is a visit to the new facilities for the SA Film Corp at Glenside.

Joint meeting AES and Acoustical Society.
This Tuesday Sept' 13th 7.30 pm
Glenside Studios, 226 Fullarton Road, Fullarton
Meet in the front foyer (clock tower building), Off street parking available

There will be four presenters; two from SAFC, one from the acoustic consultants and one from Krix Loudspeakers, who happens to be our Chairman.

Guests are welcome to join the committee for a couter tea at the Arkaba, 150 Fullarton Road from 6pm.

There should be plenty of A/V electronic hardware to see including a 128 channel Harrison mixing console.

Cheers

Keith

Lowpoke, I think you are right about it all being a bit difficult to find something that may appeal to the group. Of course the other thing is finding a date/time that may suit everybody.

Tonight we had an AES meeting which was a week later than usual. I was thinking of letting the group know about it but decided against it as it was just the running of an AES tutorial on interfacing/grounding and noise issues. This was an online Powerpoint presentation with audio of the presenter speaking at a convention in Europe.

Something that I may be doing in the future is going to visit one of the AES committee members who lives at Ashton. He has a listening room that he built to create a blameless environment for making post production adjustments to recordings. We, (the AES group) visited a similar setup previously and it was quite a revelation. Everything sounded rather "simple" in the sense that the room was not adding much to the sound. When sitting in the sweet spot and listening with headphones alternately on and off the the difference was amazingly small. This new room is supposed to be an improvement on the one we heard.

I asked Andrew the question, While this room may be a valuable aid to making editing etc decisions would you be happy listening in it for general musical entertainment? His answer was that he would be, but conceded that others may not like its dryness. I am wondering if anyone else in the group may be interested in this visit. I have the advantage of being retired so am not restricted to after hours/weekends. So far he has invited me but I have not asked him to suggest a date/time. If interested, let me know.

Keith

Hi Guys, at least those who are still following this thread.

The next AES (Audio Eng Soc) meeting will be called "The History and Design of Audio Power Amplifiers" The presenter is Graeme Cohen, a senior, but very creative consulting engineer. Something of a legend, you may say.

Don't be put off by the title as you may well learn a few things, and it will not be boring!

Tuesday September 25th, 7.30pm
Upstairs room, Directors Hotel
247 Gouger Street.

The committee will be having a counter tea from 6pm downstairs. Visitors are welcome to join us.

Keith

I am looking to hold a GTG, up in a new place in the Adelaide Hills, only 15 mins from the city.

December will be best as Uni will be finished and the horns may be ready by then.
Will post dates if there is interest.

Sounds good. I'm keen to hear your horns.

If there's interest, I don't mind hosting a get together at my office. The boardroom could work pretty well. I have my analogue system at work, but would invite others to bring along components we could listen to. It's in Stepney, so is centrally located. This can happen anytime (after business hours of course).
