Hey Guys,
can someone explain how a measurement mic "attracts" vacum cleaners? :confused:

I've spent three days setting up a KF750/755 system and as soon as the mic was on the stand on day three, the cleaning crew "magically" appeared.
I used the music+pink and every one of them told me my "radio" needed tuning :mad:

hate that - alot

often thought about trying a mic on the vacum, pass it through mixer / reference, then use it to your benefit... or something like that

so annoying, pain shared.

The next Smaart version I hope that includes an anti-vacum weight... :)

Would be interesting to see how your mic performed in a vacuum.:D

How about an inverse vacuum filter? :D Oh wait, the inverse of a vacuum is air pressure...never mind.....

Okay maybe we could make a roomba version. It would slowly average the room while it cleans!

I can vouch for the fact that the inverse of vaccuum is way worse! I was tuning at Nou Camp Stadium in Barcelona for 5 days, and there were 3 or more leaf blowers going every single minute of it!

It is a 125,000 seat stadium and by my reckoning it takes about 25 man-days to collect the trash after a match. Instead of hiring 25 men for a day, they hire 5 and give them 5 days to finish the job . . . with 2-cycle leaf blowers.
