Review of Rycote Portable Recorder Audio Kit
N/A Rycote's new Portable Recorder Audio Kit consists of a synthetic-fur windjammer plus a suspension unit. The windjammer is normally made to whatever recorder size the buyer specifies at the time of order. The one supplied for review was a good fit on my vintage Roland R-09.

Navigating uncharted waters
N/A Im home again from the annual pilgrimage to Las Vegas. It must be something to do with getting older, but this year both key performance indicators (good dinners versus greasy hamburgers, and early nights versus late night carousing) fell on the conservative side. And my flight home landed 45 minutes early, rather than a week or so late.

Its a MADI World
N/A At this years NAB Show in Las Vegas, 3D solutions were still a hot topic but one emerging technology threatened to steal the show. In fact, the rapid growth of devices that support the Multichannel Audio Digital Interface (MADI) has more potential for simplifying broadcasting operations than perhaps anything else.

Working With Audio Signals
N/A For most of the past century, working with audio signals was a very straightforward process. The audio information was converted to electrical signals in the form of a varying voltage between the two conductors in a pair (balanced) or between a conductor and the ground reference (unbalanced). The bandwidth, frequency response, distortion and noise requirements of audio circuits were all well-defined. Interconnecting audio equipment was a simple matter of matching impedance and levels, usually accomplished with simple circuits of passive devices.

3D Film-making Goes Independent
Kieron Seth# James Cameron and Sky TV have stolen the stereoscopic 3D limelight.
