Sure most here know about this site-but there may be a few who haven't seen it :)

Just to let you guys know, the Studer list is no longer active. Sadly, the interest was fading.
I would be interested if any of you guys know the address for archives of the list.

Hi Steve,

For some reason, I think Ki might have it...

Best,

Sadly, Fred's Studer list is no more. I don't know the real story, but it wasn't because interest was waning. I downloaded all the archived posts while the list was still active, but they're not in a very accessible form. It's about 30 or so very long emails. Not easily searchable.

There is a new Studer list on Yahoo.    http://groups.yahoo.com/group/STUDER/

Steve:

All the old StuderList posts are archived in the "file" section:

http://tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/STUDER/files/

It's not easy to find what you need... but makes it an interesting reading when you are stuck in an airplane for 10 hours...

thanks,
Ki

Thanks Ki,
I was a member of the old list and read all the posts pretty religiously. That's not to say I understood them all (when I started reading them, there was very little that I did understand in fact) but I think I've got a better handle on things now so I should go back and read as much as there is.
Just like the Ampex list (which I recommend to our members who don't even have Ampexes) there's always a lot of threads pertaining to replacement of a particular part which may seem like something that you could do without reading, but quite often the discussion evolves into something altogether different.

Hi Steve:

I've been out of computer science field for a long time since my college days but the old Studer List posts are in plain text file.  I wonder if we have a memeber who can convert the text file into some database or other indexing files based on subject headings that the contents can be searched with keywords...

Sony APR, Lyrec, and the New Studer List are where I frequently visit.  I'll have to look into the Ampex list though it could be a dangerous endeavor...  I just can't start a new Ampex collection. ;-)

Good to see that Mike is maintaining this forums tradition of enabling!

Ki, I think that you'll find the Ampex list a fantastic resource. Although it does have it's ups and downs in the number of postings per day, there is so much knowledge and experience there that some of the threads would be of interest to someone who has no interest in tape at all.
Last summer there was a thread started by one of the long time members here, Ken Fritz, asking for opinions on the difference in sound between Ampex 350/351/354. This quickly evolved into a discussion of which machines were used on different recordings which evolved into a discussion of the Beatles recordings and finally into different microphones used on particular great sounding recordings. There were over one hundred entries in this thread and many a link. Just fantastic stuff IMHO.

Hello all,

After joining the Yahoo Studer group, I too started reading the old Studer List posts. Or, I should say, I tried to start reading them, because the lack of formatting makes them extremely difficult to follow. Because I have my own long-term audio archiving project and wanted to have access to the collected wisdom of the Studer List, this past week I started learning about grep searching and "regular expressions" so that I could process the Studer List files in TextWrangler.

There are seven sections, collectively containing more than 10,000 posts, and I've got most of them in fairly readable shape already (it's pretty wild to do a search and replace operation on just one of the seven sections and see that 89k replacements were made!). Unfortunately, there is a randomly distributed set of about 250 posts that are almost completely undifferentiated masses of characters with no tabs or line feeds. Now I'm slowly slicing those down into the line-based units of all the other posts, and then manually selecting the body of the post for a "hard wrap" to make them readable.

When I'm finished, my intention is to import the whole archive into a searchable Filemaker database. In addition, since not everyone needs or uses a database like Filemaker, it would probably make sense to export the whole list as a simply formatted plain text document that is, at least, readable. I'll keep you posted on my progress.

Wow,
Way to go Christopher!
We look forward to hearing more about your progress.
There really is an awful lot of collective wisdom and wonderful discussions locked up in those files. And while I've never owned a Studer, there were very few threads that I skipped over.
Thanks for all your hard work!

Yo, Christopher!

Go ahead on with your bad self!

I admire your willingness to put in the time. That body of knowledge is worth having available to all. Please let us know how it progresses.

And just as an aside, when you were boning up on "regular expressions," did you run across the "Regular Expression Pocket Guide?" It's all beyond me, but I have it on good authority (from my son, who wrote it) that it's a useful book--to people who already understand it all.
