ya
sure
our CM have better compliance and quality test gear than we do
NI, AP, and any sort of test fixture they need, they make it happen

or to accept a non cosmetic, non functional defect
no
you eat the cost
because your distributors now think youre a bitch
yes but that takes time
um
so are we
it doesnt change the fact that fixing it and doing it right takes time
and there is a comittment to ship
yes, but then youre late or dont deliver comitted qty
well for me it was because they called a meeting at 8:30
sometimes a week is no good =)
yeah well if the vendor cant get protos right, its almost sure thing theyre going to fuck something up in production
like, if you get 6 samples and 2 are unacceptable, youre prob fucked
because they prob made 20 and hand picked those 6

and the tooling can be perfect, process can still fuck it up
and you might not really find out about that until you bust out with production quantity
and youre sitting there like, FUCK THIS IS NOT AS GOOD BUT IT WORKS 100%
it wouldnt matter
we can get stuff machined local
until you see what the CM can do, youre basically running on assumption
fuck experts what if the CM aint experts =(
anyone can build prototypes
to an extent
look you got 3 series of samples
and all were good
you bought parts for full production
youre actually going to make FCS
but the plastic trim rings are .01 out of spec
and they fit, but they move around in the panel cutout like .03" now
which is annoying
so you delay FCS
or you run with it
i dont think any audio company would delay FCS over it
uh
what if they fuck it up
your choice is to delay

like they dont feel like theyre going to pop out, you can just move them around in their cutout maybe .5mm
no they look snap in, bad tool
prob on ribbon cable or something
sounds like FUCK GUYS HOW DO WE USE THE SAME PARTS AS THE EXPENSIVE MIXER AND STILL SELL THIS FOR $300
we dont fix that bug and actually sell them
OK
dude this is audio, not medical
i dont think has any software
tooling mechanicals is the gating factor in most projects
new electronics spins can be built and tested in a week
new mechanicals is like 3-4
and the shit is functional
properties = chinese tooling and samples
youre not getting that in under two weeks and that would be mad rushed
who cares
that doesnt mean anything at all
we do that shit
tooled parts are what matters

it has a filter you can switch between HPS and LPF, with two Q settings, and variable freq, full spectrum
*HPF
which is about the only effect i would consider useful
its basically the same as on their higher end shit
except the Q is switched instead of variable
like, mild (looks like Q=~1) and wild (looks maybe ~1.5)
but yeah they didnt load them into guitar center before xmas
they were few weeks late
and ive seen complaints regarding one of the headphone channels
and that the effects loop and filter enable buttons (LED backlit trim rings) are kinda poor fit with the panel
which is true on the unit i poked at NAMM
but its not horrible

looked like they had the same marketing people
i care about shit works and is cheap
i think the xone22 is like $259 retail
or some shit
$299, something
and i think the VCF is analog
http://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/Xone22?utm_source=none&utm_medium=CSE&utm_campaign=none&zmam=89202644&zmas=0&zmac=1&zmap=Xone22
simple + filter effect and effects loop
the filter is cool tho
also its prob cheaper than any vestax
and its an A&H
which would actually mean something is thise was a console mixer...
but whatever
no
it has full cut EQ tho

`nico: thursday night is dnb
so thursday night, duh
kk
`nico: A&H guy at NAMM said he would get me show prices for an xone:22
i should call him its been like two months almost
i tried to buy the demo unit but hes like, o shit, sorry we sold these to a dealer before the show even started
hes a sales guy tho so who knows maybe he doesnt even work for A&H
i have a stanton i stole from the warehouse
pots all bad, fuck it
vestax is good shit
also vestax might be same as A&H

and im like DONT WORRY NEXT WEEK WILL BE AWESOME BECAUSE DARA WILL BE PLAYING
and shes like WHAT ITLL BE PACKED BECAUSE YOURE PLAYING
IM LIKE WAT NO DARA I CANT WORK TURNTABLES I JUST FIX THEM
and shes like OH, WE CAN DO IT TOGETHER THAN
which it would cool if she means, we could fuck
but im pretty sure she meant practice turntables
but thats one step closer to fucking
also she invited me to her pop punk band thing at the roxy
this is two steps closer to fucking
hopefully i dont damage our well established professional relationship
no shes a vocalist
but if she was EE, id want to fuck like 10x more
and it would explain her interest in me, besides she knows i have money because a) i always show up and b) i always tip her well (im pretty sure no one else does)

so yeah, plot the xover and speaker impedance, see if i can get some decent response plots with what we got in the lab
then tear that shit apart and BOM it
see if i can get the studio monitor project started early
mine hasnt even started
but (long pointless story)
barserver girl was all THANKS RLY! SLOW NIGHT because i always tip her well

guys guys
so we had this like, all day proj management techniques training meeting
only two days left
but anyway at the end of the day, i get paid overtime to drink beer
and while drinking beer and vaping nicotine juice, i asked vp of eng if i can take apart the mackie studio monitors in his office
he says yeah, pick em up tomorrow
\o/
i always ask my friend if i can take apart his, but he says no
=(
not likely as its prob an analog processing design
and thats not how we roll
if it dont have dsp it dont exist to us
but this monitor is known kickass
like my friend has them in his living room, its what we spin jungle on
and constant;y im looking around for the subwoofer that doesnt exist

its not a waste if you want fast protos
and can design without through hole plate without too many compromises
and wtf 1 hole per second is pretty good
which is what most PCB should be
arent you just starting at electronics?
eh?
