The preamp is sensitive to my personal EM field.
I’ve written the Austin people. Hopefully we’ll get something.
I also been building the ribbon microphone. I think it’s okay! But I can’t be sure yet because I don’t have the right preamp. The mic seems to work fine on the TASCAM – go me! I made ribbon microphone ribbons! – but it lacks adequate gain, so that’s not a workable solution.
Bed now. Work on this tomorrow.
eta: This is still true, but it looks like I can shield around it – it’s in no small part a cable-as-antenna question, and my best cables shield me out – I have successful tests again! \n/ Austin Microphones is being super-responsive, too; well done there.
