TWiRT 419 - Angry Audio with Mike Dosch

You can always make something better than it was before - and that’s what Mike Dosch is doing with “Gadgets” and “Gizmos” from Angry Audio. By re-thinking the analog audio and logic devices we’ve known for years, he’s developed new, useful gadgets that perform better than any older ones. And, new gadgets can bring broadcast-style functionality to pro-sumer audio mixers.  Plus we talk about Audio over IP and where that’s headed.

TWiRT 417 - Match Game TWiRT from New York

The Giz Wiz, Dick DeBartolo, joins us for TWiRT, on location in New York City! We check out some audio gadgets, talk about the AES and NAB conventions, and play a few rounds of Match Game.  Andrew Zarian joins us, too!

Guests:
Dick Debartolo - Dick DeBartolo, MAD's Maddest Writer, and co-host of The Giz Wiz at GizWiz.biz

The 145th AES Convention
NAB New York

Special thanks to The Telos Alliance for providing a unique and convenient way to mix our show, on location. Our headset mics are connected to a Telos Alliance xNode running 2.x firmware.  This affords a routing/mixing matrix internally which can be controlled externally. The mix points are controlled using IP-Tablet software, running on the same Microsoft Surface 4 laptop that we're using for our connection to the GFQ Network.  Our broadcast headset mics connect directly to this Mic xNode, and our headset earphones are fed by a small headphone amp which receives its feed as a mixed headphone output from the xNode. We have easy control of the mic levels and the headphone levels, including a live return feed from our producer, SunKast, at the GFQ Network.

Chris Tobin, IP-Solutionist
