Great show! Hope you can get more special guests in the future.

Close mic the bike with a AKG D112? I'm really wanting someone to overload that thing causing it to distort.

It should be noted that ribbon transducers aren't one of the earliest types, but one of the last to be invented and marketed.

Alexander Graham Bell originally used a liquid microphone, this was soon replaced with carbon microphones. Following this was the condenser microphone (mid 20s). Then came the dynamic microphone, which was first patented in 1874, but wasn't made for real use and marketed until the late 20s. THEN came the ribbon in the 30s, which was a quality improvement over all the mics of the past and had better directionality thanks to the acoustic maze added behind the microphone (the RCA 77A was the first).

*The first real condenser mic was sold in 1917 by Western Electric.

Great discussion with Angus Hewlett. I'd often wondered if synth modeling could be done at the circuit component level, and now FXpansion has done it. It's quite an interesting technology with a broad scope of potential applications.

And best of luck to Mark at the solving the world's problems. Hopefully, he'll post the results on his site.
