how do i make ethanol gel - Page 2 - Chemistry - Science Forums
Folks:  I have been working on a usable gel fuel recipe for almost a year now and I finally feel I have a successful and cost effective one.  I want the fuel for use in a gel fuel fireplace so I based my research on duplicating the SunJel commercial fuel as closely as possible.  I also use some empty SunJel cans to contain MY fuel as they are the sturdiest and are designed for the fireplace use. Which does require that I buy at least one case of the fuel to begin with.  Anyway, here are the results of my research.  I hope this helps others trying to come up with a more cost effective gel fuel:
Formulas - using empty SunJel containers
Concentrated for use with fire pots
Calcium acetate powder, 1/2 cup
$3.30 per half cup
Water, 1 cup
91% isopropyl alcohol - 6 cups
$3.87 per 6 cups
makes 4 containers
1.79 per container
Consistancy same as SunJel for use with gel fuel fireplace
Calcium acetate, 1/2 cup
$3.30 per half cup
Water, 1 cup
91% isopropyl alcohol - 10 cups
$6.40 per 10 cups
makes 7.5 containers
1.38 per container
Note:  this first part must be done EXACTLY as stated or the jell will not happen correctly!:
1) Measure ½ cup of the calcium acetate into a large mixing bowl.  Add one cup of water and whisk together well.  Measure 6 cups of the alcohol into a separate bowl.  Pour into larger mixing bowl all at once and whisk to blend. 
2)  Let sit until jelled and then add additional alcohol (up to 4-5 cups) to get desired viscosity.  More alcohol will not increase its flammability, but if too liquid, you lose the safety benefit of the jell.
1)  SunJel using Amazon Prime costs $3.33/container
2) Supplier for calcium acetate - quartzpegmatite on ebay
3) Supplier for 91% Alcohol - Walmart
4) Use real beeswax nuggets for crackle
5) SunJel containers are the strongest and are designed for use in gel fuel fireplaces, increasing safety
Material Costs
Calcium Acetate
$20/lb (with shipping ebay)
91% Isopropyl Alcohol
$2.58/bottle (4 cups/bottle, Walmart)

This triggered me having another thought. Some people or something are always with you. The point is whether you have notice their existence or not. Or, there is just some surrounding noises disturbing you to find out the truth. Sometimes, it is true that noises appear when you are going to purchase your target tea. Apart from tea, talking about daily life, perhaps, your family is always with you, do you notice?

Genelec 1031 vs. 1032...what's the difference - Gearslutz Pro Audio Community
The 1032 has a 10" woofer. At the time (and maybe still) is was the largest 2 way Genelec. out. It's in the same ballpark as the 1031 sonically, maybe not as tight in the low-low mids, but still very Genelec. (For better or worse)
1030=6 inch woofer
1031=8 inch woofer
1032=10 inch woofer

Microsoft issues ‘highly unusual’ Windows XP patch to prevent massive ransomware attack - The Verge
UK hospitals, Telefonica, FedEx, and other businesses were hit by a massive ransomware attack on Friday. Around 75,000 computers in 99 countries were affected by malware known as WannaCry, which encrypts a computer and demands a $300 ransom before unlocking it. The malware was able to spread thanks to flaws in old versions of Windows that were originally used by the NSA to hack into PCs before being made public by the Shadow Brokers group last month.

Seems like colors were already set in ~/.bashrc for me and the issue is that ssh does not use the bashrc file. You can use bashrc in your ssh session by adding the following to ~/.bash_profile:

Production versus mixing - Gearslutz Pro Audio Community
I mix on the same Genelec 1032b’s that we got in the mid 90’s . love them. I recently added a new Genelec sub which made a great difference, i can now really hear what s going on down there. I have developed a habit of also mixing through my lap top speakers and my slightly bigger sounding computer monitor speakers . If you can make it sound good on those three i recon your on pretty safe ground.

Below 40 hertz? - Page 2 - Gearslutz Pro Audio Community
Fletcher and munson curves dictate the minium level in dB SPL of the frequencies to be detected by the human ear.
20Hz needs minium 80dB to be heard like a pin falling in the ground.
30hz needs 65dB minium,
40hz needs 55dB.
50hz needs near 48dB
60Hz needs a bit over 40dB SPL
70hz - over 35dB
80Hz - near 35dB
90Hz - near 30dB
100Hz - 30dB

OT: Softsynth version of Alesis Quadrasynth? | Cakewalk Forums
No, not specifically of the Quadra Synth, but Dimension Pro has some electronic piano sounds. Or you can roll your own from your favorite Quadra Synth patch. All you need is stuff you might already have in place:


b) Dimension Pro

c) A wave editor like Sony Sound Forge, Audacity, Goldwave, or Adobe Audition;

d) A computer audio device with inputs for recording the output of the Alesis Quadra Synth;

e) A computer MIDI interface for allowing SONAR to control the Alesis Quadra Synth;

f) Windows Notepad for creating the .sfz text files which tell Dimension Pro how to load samples and assign them;

First, get everything hooked up. MIDI out from SONAR to MIDI in of Quadra Synth. Audio out from Quadra Synth to SONAR audio track.

Second, create a MIDI sequence in SONAR that will run through a series of notes at different velocities. How many notes and how many velocities will be determined by how rich/complex you want the resulting sample set to be (ie how many notes should be in the sample set--every note in the range of the QS Rhodes, or every minor-3rd note; and by how many velocity switched layers you want).

Third, run the MIDI sequence from SONAR so that the Quadra Synth responds to it on the Rhodes patch and plays back the note sequences. Have record running in SONAR on an audio track to receive the rendered audio notes.

Fourth, export the recorded audio track with all the individual notes in it as a 24bit wave file then bring this into your wave editor. Use the wave editor to slice out each individual note, apply loop points to them, and save them as individual .wav files.

Fifth, use Notepad to create a text .sfz file that will tell Dimension where how to load and layer the multisamples you created in step 4.

Sixth, launch Dimension Pro, load the SFZ file into an element, tweak the remaining user interface parameters, save as a new Dimension Pro program (.prog) file, and you now have a Dimension Pro virtual instrument version of your favorite Quandra Synth Rhodes sound.

Do this for all your favorite Quadra Synth sounds then you can retire the Quadra Synth.
