  1. Past hour
  2. I agree, but that's only for boom noises and low freq hums. It's not going to help much with swooshes from fast booming I agree as well. It's the same with the Schoeps foam, it's crap, too. Rycote has foams in offer, and then there are softie type solutions, like the softie or Bublebee's windkiller, etc. Although, I just thought, the foam that comes with the 8060 looks better, but I haven't actually tried it yet. It's also a similar diameter, but of course it's too long for the 4017c
  3. I was surprised when I didn't find any level control on the transmitter. Really waste of money, doesn't matter if it's super cheap. I prefer to spend some money in chest straps from URSA.
  4. IMMO I think we should ask DPA to do a C preamp with fixed high pass filter
  5. Today
  6. I agree! The foam isn't good when moving. I would like to know about better solutions as well..
  7. I tried a Saramonic, I couldn't find any kind of level control on the transmitter, and the receiver have a continuous high frequency tone (at low level). Looks like a Sony, but isn't close.
  8. As well as watching the American equivalent we decided to re-visit the 1990 English version. Well 4.3 picture and 16mm film is not the best but the sound is interesting!!! All done on a boom (probably a 416) with brief wide shots overlaid from close-ups. Great boom operating though with much close dialogue on the move! Gee I was using lavs a plenty since 1980 on features but I guess the style for tv was simple Oh well styles move on now lavs in ties and frocks are the current trend Interesting mike
  9. I have boomed naked - well wearing a Nagra and headphones! BTW I have used my Sanken mikes in tropical /humid countries for years including my stereo CSS-5 for 15 years!! no problems. mike
  10. Friend of mine just bought this mic and loves the sound , but found that the foam that came with it is just not great at attenuation wind when moving the mic indoors from side to side. Besides the tact cable, is there a special indoor foam that people are using with success.?

  12. Thanks, Rob, "Urban Camo", nice!
  13. Thanks, everyone for chiming in. Haven't done the key test since I don't have one to test with. The Sony is supposed to do well because of it's hybrid digital feature, but I haven't tested that either. VAS, do you have experience with the Saramonic? If so, what aspects of it did you find below par? Thanks.
  14. Thanks. A post colleague advised me that he got ISO tracks with a couple of frequencies that were completely notched nearly 100%. I know the recorder is a Nomad. I also doubt this was an intentional move by this particular production mixer. So just curious how it might have happened inadvertently.
  15. Hi Jeff - I randomly buy different tyres for SU - trying to keep in the size of 20" by 2.3" or 2.4". The SU needs a fatter tyre, because of its size & the weight it usually carries. This one is a Fiction Troop BMX tyre - limited Edition Urban Camo. I try to give these ones to the younger folks... Rob
  16. Looks good! What's with the camo pattern on the wheels? Never seen that be before.

  18. Great article shared by David.
  19. Mike where did you find this picture? I really admire people like these. Rob Stalder So much Ying and Yang in this discussion. This is an elephant in the room discussion. Ying - David that link to the 3 legged post so impressed me. You always have a way of shining light through the forest canopy, in such a polite way. Yang - Aginzo, from my POV you may bat for the other team. But I am so impressed with the refreshing way you put your debate, I would like to offer you a 20% discount off any cart of mine you would like to buy. Email me if you might be interested. Disclaimer - I do buy some Chinese, Taiwanese, Indonesian & South Korean parts... Rob
  20. Yesterday
  21. Nope. The compressors show the amount of reduction, but HPF and notch filters can only be checked in the channel setup pages.
  22. If it's applied, is there any warning in the home screen?
  23. Channel setup menu has an on/off toggle and a frequency setting for each analog input.
  24. Hello all - RTFM but couldn't find anything about notch filters in the Nomad. The description of the machine describes 2 per channel. Where are they? How are they operated. Can they be applied and have someone be unaware? Used machine or something, and notch set without knowledge. Or lent it to someone who made changes? That kind of thing. How would you know if it wasn't audible in the field? Thanks, Robert
  25. @ Doc Justice: You are quite right; Boom Mate is the proper name for the device. My example is now so old and well used that the name on the label is almost completely unreadable. A search on the LSC site turned up a link with Boom Buddy input so I went with it. @ aginzo: Sorry for the small hijack. These discussions often stray from one side of the path to another and I thought there had been enough general discussion of variously sourced boom holders to warrant mention of this well designed alternative. @ The JW Sound Community: Addressing the general subject of specialty equipment and resources, I have long been an advocate of purchasing purpose-built gear (when available) and buying from the companies that support our community. This is not a criticism of any particular action; we all buy from handy sources and can't be expected to weigh the community support aspects of every $20 purchase. But, as a general philosophy, I advocate at least checking out the offerings at the pro audio shops before going to the box stores. On the subject of the expense of professional gear, I'd like to share this article written by one of the owners of 3 Legged Thing, a camera accessories manufacturer: (originally published in Photography, a Flipboard/Petapixel publication) He has a bit of a chip on his shoulder after reading on blogs about how his $50 specialty bracket is a rip-off because a similar Chinese knock-off can be purchased for much less but his points are valid.

  26. Ouch, ok... I'll make sure I take some butter with. Thanks, I saved your number. Will defo get in touch if need be.
