So, what happened to the directory of audio links that used to be in the left-hand column?

Well, they’re actually still there. If you go to one of my article pages (my DIY speaker page for example) you can still find the link pages. I haven’t removed the directory database.


Basically, I’m tired of having to maintain the list (currently at over 1200 links). Between all of the pages that crop up daily and the equal number of pages that seem to disappear every day, I just can’t keep up anymore. So I’m not going to bother.

I’m planning on replacing the directory with a more intimate directory of links pointing to products, companies, and sites that I have personal experience with. Hopefully, that will make it a more reliable directory. However, the overhaul is going to have to wait until I get back in two weeks.

In the meantime, if you’re looking for links to general acoustics sites, you’ll have to use a search engine.

Home from Minneapolis for 4 days - just enough time to unpack, do laundry, visit a friend’s new baby, consult on a condo project, then head off to D.C. for a 2-week project.

As I was leaving Minneapolis, I lost my cell phone somewhere between the hotel and the light rail train. I was fortunate that another conference attendee, Brandon Tinianov (of Quiet Solution) found my phone - he was able to coordinate with another conference attendee from Massachusetts who was able to bring the phone to me.

I figure the least I could do to show my appreciation to Brandon was to plug some of his projects.

In all sincerity, the QuietRock family of drywall looks interesting. I’m always wary of drywall products that claim to provide significant sound reduction over normal drywall (most products provide very little attenuation over regular drywall), but the QuietRock products were tested by NRC and the reps were very upfront about the data. It’s worth a look if you have interior noise issues.

So much to write about, so little time to write.

AES was great, I hope ASA/Noise-Con next week will be as equally eventful.

A question for AES and ASA organizers: do you really have to hold you conferences in a 3-week period? There are some of us that go to both.

Speaking of Noise-Con - if you’re one of the 15 people in the country who care about ground-borne vibration, here’s my Noise-Con 2005 paper: Vibration Transfer Mobility Measurements Using Maximum Length Sequences.
