Cool picture!
Does the 1905 model have trouble with re-scans??
LOL

No but sometimes you need to wind it up again partway through a track.
Maybe I'll get KDF to do a rewind plugin for it :-)

I can see an enhancement request already - scheduled rewind!!
I see you have a gig tomorrow night...
Would be impressed to see you playing the trumpet and performing backing vocals at the same time though.. :)

I've just shown this to my wife. It seems that the gramophone styling has a much higher Wife Appreciation Factor. Maybe this should be an alternative case? The display would go quite nicely in the place of the brass plaque on the front.

PS Don't do this to an original gramophone whatever you do!

The 2005 model is a lot quieter than the older version, which comes with its own speakers.

Does anyone want to hear it?
I could make a recording and post it if anyone is interested

Yes please, something by John Philip Sousa would be appropriate <g>.

Sure, hearing it would be a hoot.
I'd also be interested in the frequency response of the
playback. I bet it is pretty seriously down at both ends
of the 20-20k spectrum. maybe 50 to 4k?

Ok, I have Marching with Sousa by the Regimental Band of H.M Grenadier Guards conducted by Capt. George Miller.

Ok I'll do a spectral analysis on it before I convert it to mp3 cos that's just gonna destroy the response ;-)

It won't be till Friday night though.

Amazing how fast things can change in so little time.

I would say that the microphone that you use to record the sample will have a -far- greater impact on the frequency response than converting it to mp3 (especially if you use Lame as your compressor with a standard setting)...

but I'd definitely still like to listen!

Fantastic! Did you have to wind it up in the middle?

Yes I did, you can hear it slow down then speed up when I started winding it up.

Yes, I did hear that but wanted to check that was what was going on. It added a nice touch to the recording. I think I'll add those mp3s to my collection - they'll be a good suprise when I play everything at random!

In that case you'll be needing cover art

I'll have to take these files down at the end of the week cos I'm supposed to be updating the web site and I'll need the space so if anybody wants a listen - it's now or never.

A medley of some of my favorite marches. Very cool.
As I expected, there is almost nothing below 250 hz or so,
other than the fundamental of the bass drum.
And all of what we'd call high end
today is just surface noise.

Interesting that the sides are a little over four minutes
long, about the same as 78s.

Its cool, but I'll keep my SqueezeBox

That's not the fundemental of the bass drum, It's mechanical noise cos the turntable is wobbly :-)
