  6. In 1936 the German National Court declared that Pfleumer's patent was nul and void because his idea of coating paper tape with iron dust was covered in Poulsen's original patents of 1898 and 1899

    It's kind of a toss up.
    :D

    Yeah, there's a lot of contraversy with all this stuff.... So it's hard to tell who actually did what. :D

    How true CFOD , Recording history is like any other history without learning it we are doomed to repeat our mistakes or at least be in the dark about why we do it the way we do and appreciate what we have now as opposed to our humble beginings... (Is that me or the Maxwell House talking..) either way :c:

    BTW, Valdemar Poulsen came up with the first magnetic recorder using wire, but it was not a tape recorder.... But Fritz Pfleumer re-invented it using tape. :)

    …hmmmm…. Very interesting guys…. :(
    I had big points on that , like I said ….‘cause I wanted to know it myself.
    Maybe Putney … from Urei?

    The offer is still there , up to 30 points for a reasonable reason.
    I knida think it was because of RPM was 78 , so you couldn’t fit much on….
    …so you had to fade.

    I’ve gottta work out these scores so bare with me ,
    …then the games resume 30 – 60 min. from now….
    Question 15 has a multitude of parts and tasks to it…. It’s one of the toughest. :d:

    BUT THE REAL $*^t HAS YET TO COME. :w:

    Hey jumping in here, looks like fun.

    Fade out was developed by whoever made the volume dial. Low or high RPMs can change pitch but don't really affect volume.

    Unfortunately whoever made the volume dial is probably lost to history... Like the first guy to slap a digital clock on a coffeemaker. :)

    Ok I have my reasons…this is what I think is fair:

    Doug gets 18 points.
    Cornflake gets 10 points….now come on man , you could’ve done much better…
    Tekker gets 15 points.

    Tekker …. well , he did overide the less is more approach , , I should have said , list at MOST three .Good research though.

    SCORES:

    ALK509 15 points

    CONSUL 20 points

    CORNFLAKEOFDEATH 80 points

    CHRISSUGAR 17 points

    DOUG102938@aol.com 138 points

    SKEETCH 35 points

    TEKKER 45 points

    FREAKY 10 points

    Everyone still has a chance….don’t lose hope. ;)

    i think the reason the first person did it was becuase the song didnt really have an ending and they were running short on studio time and they paniced so they just were like "hey lets just slowly turn it down till its done". The first people will most likely always be a mystery as to no one wants to admit that there were broke and non creative.. :D

    Yeah , my reference to the RPM was that a 78 RPM 12” record ran for around 4 minuites I think.
    …so you really couldn’t fir much classical on there….you had to cut it short…or FADE it out. :p

    Question soon. :w:
