As well as providing support for Windows 7 Lin4WinXP can now generate microphone polar response plots. Polar plots are created by mounting a microphone on a turntable in-front of a speaker outputting a tone at a fixed level. As the turntable rotates Lin4WinXP records the incoming level and draws a graph. Microphone manufacturers need these tools for development, generating specifications and production testing.
Contact Lindos for advise on turntables to use.

Wow & Flutter Measurement now Available for the MS20
Wow and flutter measurement is carried out on audio tape machines, cassette players and turntables (vinyl records) in order to quantify the amount of 'frequency wobble' (caused by tape speed fluctuations). Though tape is more or less obsolete these days there are 70 years of recorded analogues tape in archives around the world; much of which is being migrated into digital libraries and technicians need tools like the MS20 to keep their playback decks in top working condition.

LA1s Highly Sought After
Original LA1s designed over 25 years ago have become a highly sought after collectors item. Collectors buying from the online auction site ebay.co.uk have been paying up to £500 to secure one of the original handmade units.
The LA1 unit was designed and built in the garage of Lindos company founder Pete Skirrow back in the late 1970's and went on to be widely used by the BBC and other broadcasters and studios worldwide.
Production of the LA1 ceased in 1984 with the introduction of the LA100, however our dedicated team here at Lindos continue to provide support and repairs for the unit and can even provide a Lithium-ion battery upgrade for
customers on request.
