Hello,

In one of Robin Porter's (AMS Neve engineer) tutorials on the BCM10/MK2 he
mentions a cut button. Not a low cut, but a cut button.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3gsGV9j7pSA

Would someone please help this notalentwannabee understand what it does?

Thanks,
Robert

Judging by its position and color, and proximity to the solo button,
I'd have to conclude he's talking about what we more commonly call a 'mute' button,
or one that effectively stops the signal from continuing through the channel strip.
Used in conjunction with the solo button, it can be used to isolate parts of
the mix to highlight problems.

That's what I was guessing. Sometimes we have to translate the Queen's English
into whatever it is that most of speak on this side of the pond.

Thanks for your reply,

The desk has cut and solo buttons and valves.

The console has mute and PFL buttons and tubes.

The difference between faders and sliders is still unknown.

Proper faders as used many years ago had a resistor ladder, a series of
fixed contacts and a moving contact? They reduced the signal in a series
of fixed ratios. Sliders have a resistive strip and a contact on a knob
that slides along a guide strip?

In context though, he seems to be using "slider" to mean the bit that
controls the fader. It took me a while to work out that in this case,
what I initially heard as "door" is actually DAW, though.

The cut buttons I heard him mention and saw him demonstrate are used as
a hard cut (or mute)on the feed from that channel to each of the two cue
buses. There is also a cross fader if you just want to vary the relative
levels of the feeds rather than mute them completely.

I appreciate that.

Somewhat off topic, but I have always said Dee A doubleyou. Most folks these
days seem to say daw that rhymes with awe.

Thoughts?

Good to hear him correctly pronouncing "route", pron. "root".

The common US mispronunciation of route (mis)pron. "rowt" is to mill
the edge of a piece of wood (or other material) to a particular shape
with a rotary tool and whatever-shaped bit.

I think 'root' is dying out in the US. For me, it's always 'rowt'. "Take the scenic rowt".
I would never say 'root', and I never hear it in California. The thing that
directs network traffic, a router, is pronounced 'rowter'. People would
scarcely know what you were referring to if you said 'rooter'. Rooter is
the thing the guy puts down a clogged drain.

Symptomatic of the degeneration of the American language. Most
Americans now could not identify, let alone use an adverb. Sayings
that once had meaning are rendered gibberish because nobody actually
understands meanings. That is how we get such nonsense as "I could
care less" and "hold down the fort". Words have become mere noises you
make with your mouth.

To which, in my mind, I always add "But it's too much effort."

_______

I'm from the States, yet I pronounce Route as 'root', and I pronounce
both Rs in the month of FeBREWary.

I also pronounce Chernobyl power plant's category as NEW-CLEAR,
despite my being from America!

My favourite is the likes of " Stop this already !" - which would

Router normally mispronounced everywhere now.

And a rooter is somebody actively enthusiastic in partaking in sexual
intercourse.

Oh yeah, and the the tool and action for the milling thing is spelt
router/rout.

And now 'tool'. Pronunciation universal, but several alternate meanings
including as a verb in using a tool or equipment to machine a piece of
material, and as a noun for a dickhead (person), or a penis. Not sure
how those meanings travel ...

Regrettably, "new-killer" is the defacto Yankee pronounciation
of the thing.. And our esteemed Merriam-Webster Dick-shunairy
actually allows for both pronunciations!

After all Geoff: the U.S. itself was founded on the premise of doing
things "our way, fuck the rest of the world"...!

So is it just easier for humans - and not just those in NorthAm - to pronounce it that way?

I, for one, would rather be correct than easy

May I - as a non-native speaker - ask the following question:

How ist the name of the famous US highway 66 nowadays pronounced in
the US: "rowt" or "root" (like in the song by Bobby Troup)?

Bye,

Reinhard

As I mentioned, language follows practice. Dictionary.com gives
noo-kyuh-ler as one of the possible pronunciations. One that always
catches my ear is 'jewelry' when pronounced 'jewlery'. Again,
dictionary.com lists that as acceptable. I'm sure I hear that
'incorrect' pronunciation far more often. It's like saying
"Just between you and I" or misuse of "that begs the question".
Eventually the pedants have to yield to common practice.
