Music at your place?

Recommended Posts

I thought it would be a great idea to use this forum to share some ideas on music people listen to and get some ideas on new bands or good music. We always have music playing at our office and manufacturing plant.

Our latest two favorites are:

The FEELERS - Album: ONE WORLD - kick ass New Zealand band

Empire of the Sun - Album: WALKING ON A DREAM - very odd Austrialian band - all the rage in Australia, Europe, and Japan

And this does have to do with signs/art - we all listen to music at our offices/plant - it keeps us all moving.

We listen to Sirius (XM) satelite radio in my shop. We usually have it on Classic Vinyl, which is basically classic rock. When we get bored of that we listen to Alt Nation which is current alternative rock music. We also like the Coffee House, which is mostly acoustic songs.

When I am alone I listen to Howard Stern, but it's not very work appropriate so I only listen when no one else is around.

We sometimes listend to SLACKER RADIO on our iPhone system - the comedy channels make for a good break and make us laugh. Laughing is good medicine I have learned recently from top Dr. in State of Nevada. Improves your health in many ways.

You would love some of the Australian country music - a lot of cowboys.

In fact since so many men went to work in concrete/building industry in Australia it left an opening for women to find a lot of work being cowgirls...or jilaroos

There was lot of Greek rap bands in Athens on a recent trip there - very odd.

My music depends on my mood.

• Blues

• Hiphop

• Punk

• soft mooshy music

• 80's

80% of the time it's talk radio. Country I can't stand, but love the message. Garett (Elite Lamp) and his wife, along with myself and my wife just got back from a Country concert here at the Cricket Amphitheater last weekend (They are fun as hell to hang out with), a fund raiser for all the fallen soldiers, namely their kids college funds. Charlie Daniels rocks :headbang: I'm not really down with country, but I truly enjoy watching that man with his Violin, he shreds that thing. It's like watching Santa Claus with a big belt buckle, and a big cowboy hat!.

It's once a year, the wife loves country, it's a good cause, so I go and endure for one night. :P

I feel you on the American thing though, so true!


You have enemies? Good. That means you've stood up for something, sometime in your life. - Winston Churchill

Nice, I saw Charlie Daniels at Cricket a couple of years ago, along with the Marshal Tucker band.

I'm going to Brad Paisley there in October because my fiance told me so. :0wn3d:

anything with a fast tempo beat is good when I bend. It helps me make the glass dance.

During the day, no music


GOOD things happen for a reason......

I watched "Flight 666" on my flight home from LA the other night, and being a long time Iron Maiden fan I loved the movie, and it has me on a bit of a Maiden kick.

:headbang: Up the Irons! :headbang:

Marko, I too love Maiden. A little Judas Priest thrown in for good measure and I'm good for a road trip.

Then I'll change the channel and listen to Keith Urban, Brooks and Dunn ect...

Weird Huh??

You have no idea - will go from very heavy rock, to classical music, to off the beaten track foreign bands, and then to some of the new American acts. It is rather interesting how the music world is going global again - in a big way - it is like the 80s all over again.

I just got 5th row tickets to see U2.

I can easily flip from Maiden to Sinatra to Chili Peppers to Duran Duran to Croatian folk music.

But Keith Urban or Brooks and Dunn? Sorry - I honestly just don't get it.

Another one I just don't get, to be honest. I can handle everything up to Rattle and Hum, but after that I'm unable to listen. Ditto for AC/DC after Back in Black.

U2's new album is pretty good.

Went to a Duran Duran concert last month - they are getting old.

Hell, we just paid outrageous amounts for Depeche Mode tickets.

I cannot do Country - not my deal. Closest to it is the lady who is #1 in Japan and Australia - Delta Goodrem - she is just nice to look at as well.

On my weekend days alone at the shop it is blues as loud as I can take it. During hours I have always felt it should be oldies or country. I think these two styles are the ones that are basically accepted by everyone that may come through my shop at any given time. I dont mind the guys listening to other music styles, I just ask that they put headphones on to listen to their music or turn it down/off when someone comes through.

Guess not here for most folks. But, I might of listened to a song or two of those particular bands.

I like country...

I grew up with my Dad listening to Southern rock type music and my Mom loving American Country. She listen to George Jones and Tammy, Slim Whitman (god, that is hard on the ears), Conway Twitty and what not. I heard CDB and was hooked and then caught the Bocephus bug. Learned my Waylon and the boys from there.

Saw Green Day at the Hard Rock Hotel parking lot concert venue a couple of years ago - was awesome concert.

We provided a lot of power supplies to YESCO on the new Hard Rock Hotel upgrades.

    • Like new Roland VersaCamm VS640 printer for sale - prints white & metallic inks - it needs a print head, but other than that, it is in immaculate condition.  You can't even tell we have printed on it I have kept it so clean.  I think it is about 7 or 8 years old.  We are getting a new printer, so I have to get this one out of the way before we can set the new printer up.  Will come with all of the RIP Software (Roland VersaWorks)  - Excuse the dirty floor!  Had a large project going on in here so I haven't had time to clean!  LOL             Make me an offer.
    • Most Light Source Suppliers and Manufacturers won't show you examples let alone "numbers" of light readings on Sign Cabinet or Sign Projects from light source components they push like these I'm posting here, but....This is The Sign Syndicate!   "Seeing is believing" as they say.   So, one of the components I've been big on because of feedback and demand is a strong enough LED module that doesn't cost an arm and a leg, isn't proprietary where you need to buy their special clips, brackets, etc, and actually put out enough light without exaggerated "Usable Light" under too far spread spacing that's supposed to save you money that won't compete with other existing signs in the area of your project.    Biggest complaint from sign shops about cabinet LEDs....."I don't want to use a whole bunch of power supplies!"   You want your clients sign to stand out, NOT be lost or drown out by other neighboring signs also competing for attention and visibility.   Most importantly, the BrightON Sunfire LED keeps it simple by allowing custom sign shops not having to pay enormous amounts of money.   I've discussed our upcoming new High-End Sign Syndicate BrightON Sunfire LED for Cabinets, Slim Cabinets, and Large Channel Letters before.  But I've never had an opportunity to back it up with facts by illustration until now.   Let's start with our industry long time standard light source components first.    That is good ol HO T12 Fluorescent Lamps.    Unlike our industry suppliers and manufacturers I'm not going to bash the use of HO Lamps, they work good, and they do last a long time despite their marketing claims of failure just to sell another light source.  There are some very well High-End made HO Lamps for our industry.   Back to the project.   Here we have your typical 4' x 4' x 12" double sided cabinet that we would either see on a pole or mounted on the ground.    3/16" 7328 Plexiglas MC acrylic face.  Using industry standard spacing of lamps at 12" spacing.        HO Lamps 6" in from the sides and 12" from lamp to lamp powered by a energy efficient electronic ballast pulling about 126 Watts         With four HO 4' lamps with 12" spacing we have a average Foot Candle average right on the sign face of 156.5 FC    This is, and has been our industry average for sign surface lighting for DECADES.         Here is our High-End Sign Syndicate BrightON Sunfire  (pronounced just like the city)     A 3 watt LED module with a 170˙ High Uniformity Optics with over 420 lm   Most importantly it's 24V system, and Constant Current.... NOT Constant Voltage.    This system has reduced amperage, heat, and resistance running across it compared to a 12V and it has more voltage head room for long runs.  This calculates to longer life.  On a 24V system this means loading more modules on a 96W power supply than a limited 60w power supply of a 12V system.  Less moving parts on a project the better.     Below and as illustrated we spaced our modules the same as HO Fluorescent Lamps.  6" in, 12" from row to row and one Sunfire Module per foot, spaced 12" apart from one another   One thing I wanted on our Sunfire modules were longer wires between each module.  You have enough wire (15") to jump from row to row without having to splice...less labor involved and it gives you more room to do what other tasks you may need to do with longer wiring.   Using modules like our BrightON Sunfire makes your projects at so much of a lesser cost.  Instead of buying special proprietary clips, tracks and mounting brackets just purchase inexpensive alum 1/16" or 1/8" angles and channel for mounting.  These typically can be bought in 8', 16', and 24' lengths.        The results.....196.5 Foot Candle average on the sign face surface, a 26% brighter face       What makes the BrightON Sunfire even better?   Adding a True Power France Lighting Solution 24V LED Power Supply.  True Power means having the ability to load 100% of a load on a power supply.  As you know most power supplies are asked to load to 80%-85%.  Not so with France, 100% if need be.       Most competing cabinet 12V/24V LED modules will run you anywhere from $7.00 to $15.00 per module.    The BrightON Sunfire will only run you $3.75 per module, giving you NOT "Usable Light" but "Real Competitive Light" as illustrated here.....26% brighter, over above our industry standard lighting of T12 HO Fluorescent Lamps!!      
    • Our 24V France "True Power" Lighting Solution products that will power our Sign Syndicate Brighton LEDs have finally arrived and are now listed up in our Online Shopping Cart.   You'll be able to power up 118 .8watt BrightON II LED Modules on a single 96W France LED Power Supply for all your channel letter and sign cabinet  projects!!!    That means cost savings in using less LED Power Supplies in using a 24V system over a 12V system.    A 24V System also reduces the Amperage, Heat, & Resistance running across your LED Modules over a 12V system   Two HUGE pluses for your projects, High-End, High Efficiency Constant Current 24V BrightON LEDs powered by True Power France Lighting Solutions Engines.
    • Large outdoor LED display is a high-tech engineering product integrating multi-disciplinary technologies such as electronics, power, computer, communication, information, image processing, optics, materials and structure. The relevant engineering and technical problems in any of these subject areas will affect the final operation of the entire display. A perfect LED display must be an organic combination of multidisciplinary technologies. Led display dot matrix module driver is generally completed by a constant current driver chip. The chip includes a serial shift register, serial-to-parallel conversion and constant current driving and other functional circuit components as shown in Figure 1. The constant current chip is a conversion device that converts the luminance signal of the controller into an appropriate driving current for driving the LED to emit light. The quality factor of the constant current of the constant current device will affect the effective brightness of the Exhibition LED Display Shenzhen. Especially when the refresh rate of the display screen and the number of display gray levels are higher, the constant current chip will more significantly affect the brightness of the entire display screen. As shown in Figure 1, the supply voltage V-LED of the display will also be one of the important factors affecting the brightness, especially when the voltage is lower than the normal on-voltage of the LED, the LED illumination effect is affected, thus affecting the whole The brightness of the display. In summary, in order to solve the brightness problem in the display application, we can take practical measures including: using high-brightness chips, high light-receiving rate to select Indoor rental LED Screen, and designing pre-sufficient while ensuring white balance brightness requirements. Appropriate pixel point combination design to ensure reasonable pixel viewing angle, increase the visual contrast of the display through reasonable arrangement and structure design of the lamp; select high-quality constant current driving chip for reasonable driving current And voltage design to ensure efficient driving of LEDs.   Of course, ensuring efficient LED driving requires strong R&D and technical strength. The LED video wall display china industry has grown rapidly in recent years, and has also grown up with a number of excellent display applications and display light source packaging companies, such as display light source packaging. Enterprise--Bai Shi, after years of development and growth, now has its own display R&D lab, dedicated to the research of LED display technology, and a large number of LED display application technologies in the United Nations key research institutes. research work.
