    Schoeps mini CMIT

    possibly, but then again if one were to put the Mini in a full size Piano that might be even better.

    Schoeps mini CMIT

    The mini has a fixed 4th order low-cut filter at 70 Hz that is present, regardless if you need or want them. If you want to be able to turn it off, e.g. when you want to record low freq stuff or want to match it to a CCM8 in an M/S setup, you want the switching feature of the 5U. Apart from that, as a rule of thumb bigger windscreens are less susceptible to wind than smaller ones. Not sure if you are referring to me. I have reported that it is vulnerable to swishing noise when used with the Rycote INV-Lite 21 indoor mount. I don't think the Mini vs the 5U are different regarding swishing noise in general. However, as stated above the Piano has probably a more windshielding effect than the Pianissimo.
  5. Here is a screenshot I got from post. More colorful than my asci art, I guess. I've talked to post again, they somehow do not feel comfortable sending project files to "some guy on the internet" or don't have the time to create one. I've asked them for some wav where the issue occures and some where it does not, so I could compare the metadata. Still waiting, but my engagement ends on monday, so it is somehow "case closed" for me. I've created this thread, in the hope someone had run into the issue before. Anyway, thanks for your help so far.

    Depends what mike you use! Also what type of work you do! After decades of drama and documentaries I have learned what to use and quickly! mike

    I got a personal response to the above comment, didn't think people with that kind of intelligence are able to read this forum...

    Schoeps mini CMIT

    Some reports have suggested it is noticeably more vulnerable to swishing noise using a foam windshield (turbulence, air flow?) than a 5U, and a Rycote Baseball or such like may be necessary, thus reducing some of the weight reduction advantage?

    50% EU import duties on US recording equipment !!

    When did Trump ever want to lower tariffs? He was the one who killed TTIP. This would have been a US-EU free-trade agreement that wasn’t yet a done deal. He still could’ve changed it if he thought it was a „bad deal“. And it certainly wasn’t a great deal, but at least everyone agreed on lower tariffs

    So the pursuit to a lower tariffed, globalised free-market economy is very potentially going to lead to a planet with high tariffs, 6-10% less global trade and a move away from free-market economics? It seems somewhat ironic, don't you think? I find the really interesting aspect of all of this the fact that the USA and China are heading in completely opposite directions. While the USA is threatening higher tariffs, China is gearing up to invest a billion dollars on a 21st century Silk Road trade infrastructure network through 70 odd Asian, Middle-Eastern and European countries. Who knows where it will all lead... the result of this may well be a new world order.
  13. Out of curiosity, is Lectrosonics considering anything in the 1790-1800 MHz range? Australia has reshuffled and it looks like it is now used exclusively for wireless audio. Sennheiser has started making and selling products in the range, for example.

    Schoeps mini CMIT

    So... I’m buying the Schoeps mini CMIT with the Cinela Pianissimo. My question is: is there any reason to buy the CMIT 5U instead? Filters are not needed with the cinela, the reach is the same, the mini is lighter, the cinela smaller... Same sound quality... Just checking with you guys your experience. thanks!

    Sound Devices MixPre-3 vs Zoom F4

    I have done tests with the MixPre where I pulled out the power supply in the middle of recording a file. The file survived just fine. -Mike
  16. thanks, it's the red way to release cameras when not everything is working (like the audio board), good to see Panavision is keeping up that fine tradition.

    DIY sma antenna

    Roubi, I have made antennas from nitinol nickel-titanium wire, but decided to use small diameter multi-strand cable instead. I understand that you are making antennas for receivers, not transmitters at this point. When I made nickel-titanium antennas, I would file a series of small notches in the terminal end of the wire. The notches would be covered by the SMA pin after soldering, but would add a mechanical bound inside the soldered connection. The colored caps are sold at B&H in New York, made by Lectrosonics I think.

    Just picked up a DemerBox! They have some deals on “scratch and dent” models...I mean it’s a Pelican...how “scratch and dent” could it be...hit them up!

    DIY sma antenna

    Merci beaucoup Larry, I'll sleep better not feeling the urgent need to remake all of them... Impressive Mark, I haven't been as far as you! I am using the antennas only on receivers (I am using UWP-D11 modified to SMA) but also quickly tried them with Lectro SRB (even at the wrong length, they work very well). What wire are you using ? And where do you find those small caps ? Thanks Roubi (Grégoire de Courtivron)

    Bingo... Everyone, it looking for some kind of shortcut to experience.. Surprise, there is NO shortcut to experience.

    Sound is no longer respected on set?

    For a second I bought this one... then, I went.. Heeeyyy.. I know this one.. LOL

    DIY sma antenna

    Roubi, Here are some of the antennas I make. One of the tests I do is to put the SMA connector into a vice and then I lock vice grip pliers on the antenna wire. I then try to rip the antenna wire out off the SMA. Lectrosonics antennas are super strong. I pulled a Remote Audio antenna wire out, but it was difficult. Mine are 3rd place so far. You might think it is crazy to put a $40.00 antenna in a vice and then try to destroy it, but I wanted to know. I also did not want "talent" pulling an antenna out.
