    6 series trim knob -CL12

    Not sure how technology adjusts to an individual. Seems like all things are built with fixed limitations, no? I know it's an age old tradition to bitch about the gear that manufactures build for the market but can you imagine the cost per unit if we could order custom builds from the vendors? CrewC

    On My Radio

    Love Dan and this new album of his. Dig the Tiny Desk series too. CrewC

    NopeDotCom. Seems hardly an issue once it becomes second nature (like all systems do after awhile). CrewC

    How can boom ops be more diplomatic?

    So Tom would of been your call if the Kentucky thing wasn't a thing? I think the main lesson is to stand your ground going into a gig. I know absolutely that I am nothing without a good and trusted boom op who works the way I do. CrewC

    How can boom ops be more diplomatic?

    For my clarification, where did Tom come from? If you knew who to ask after #1 went down, why didn't you go with him first off? Seems like there is more to this story or I'm just not smart enough to understand you. CrewC

    How can boom ops be more diplomatic?

    No offense but I think you needed to step in and deal with it on day two. They over reacted and you didn't cover your team mate. Going back further, if you knew Tom was a better boom op you should of made a stand for him before it got to this point. No way to change a persons personality. If the dude had a Tude he was not going to get a new one for you or them. I make thes comments based on your confusing story. CrewC

    Best small format recorders for planting

    I've got a Lectro PDR. Works great for a number of things I used it for. CrewC
  8. Philip, that's the same thoughts and ideas RVD and I talked about decades ago. Wish it was a pathway to a creative endeavor. Oh well, I can't complain, only dream. CrewC
  9. Yeah. Basically they don't know what and why we do what we do in our jobs, and we don't know what they do or even who they are. Weird workflow but it seems to work better in practice than on paper. CrewC
  10. True. And i do. Easyier to do in L A commercials than TV or Film but I've... let's say grown to see the value of that workflow $$$. Still not the right way in at least 50% of the scenes I record. CrewC
  11. Got around to listening to this today. It was ok. Just shows no one knows anything in our biz. CrewC
  12. Interesting comments. Can't wait to hear the podcast. Sounds like a lot of complaining about iso tracks. Odd. It's my understanding iso's are post driven/requested/demanded thing. I know "wire em all" is an AD thing and I have zero issue telling a AD no. Hard to argue with a producer who gets a chain email from post wanting an explanation why we didn't wire em all. CrewC

    Indeed a worthy cause to help a brother out in his time of need. Thanks for the info Jeff. CrewC

    Best Shotgun Mic for Singing Guitarist on Location

    In the old days the 415's were susceptible to high frequency distortion (Like keys jingling) and could be problematic. Hard to really say in your case as there were so many variables possible. You have the recording to post so we could hear the issue? A schoeps 41 is my mic of choice in most situations and would of been in this one as well. CrewC

    Problems with Wingman

    This has been my experience as well. I set it up and roll it in the background though, seldom looking at it during a shoot. CrewC
