    Mixer Mods for Zaxcom?

    Punch ins are done all the time in music still, especially is there is a natural break. Studio time costs a lot of money, and editing takes a lot of time. If you've got a perfect take up to a certain point and there is a great punch-in spot, take advantage and save on studio and editing time. Now, that being said, I am currently mixing an album where we had just a few punch ins in the studio where we tracked drums, bass, primary rhythm guitar, C3, and Rhodes, and those all sound great. But then I left tracking additional guitars, vocals, and electronic keys to the band in their studio and there are a number of poorly timed punch-ins to fox and the shear number of takes is staggering. Both require a lot of editing on my part. I asked them to edit tracks down to single takes, but that was too complicated for them. There are pitfalls to both methods...

    Use a computer for that. Any job you might want that ability on you'd probably be tracking to Pro Tools or similar, anyway. When camera is involved, they just want an entirely new take to be edited later, since they have to edit the video as well.

    Ambeo VR monitoring

    Thanks, Jose. I'll definitely be converting in computer. I'll try the above method and if it sounds weird I'll just check in mono.

    Ambeo VR monitoring

    Thanks! Almost bought the Soundfield, but decided I just don't do enough of that work to justify the cost. Guess I'll find out if the Ambeo is worth it...

    Ambeo VR monitoring

    I have a job coming up that would like Ambisonic recordings of various environments so I'm picking up the new Sennheiser Ambeo VR. It isn't really a big source of income for me so I feel the Ambeo is in the right price range, plus I've always been intrigued with the the technology, so I decided to just buy the thing instead of renting. Question regarding monitoring in real time: So... What's up with that thing I just said? Really though, is there a way prior to converting to B-format in the computer to listen in real time to just a stereo representation of what I'm capturing? Perhaps sending a couple capsules to L and the other pair to R? Or is it just a matter of selecting a capsule one at a time for a mono check? I'll be using my Maxx for recording. Thanks.

    Lectro SRc field reports?

    Same issues here. I probably need to send them in. What's the turnaround time for updates?

    Bebop Bag Sound Cart

    According to their Facebook page they ship them individually. After delivery they are about the same as the Orcart.

    Bebop Bag Sound Cart

    Who's using the Bebop Bag Sound Cart? Similar to Orcart, but a little different. Looks tougher. Also the trolly is removable which means you can replace it with bigger pneumatic wheels.

    Avenger A5017 for boom

    This was as light as a c-stand, which is obviously not as light as my go-to MERF stand, but not too heavy at all. I can see leaving this in my car. Think I'll get one and report back.

    Avenger A5017 for boom

    I actually like those *except* that the base is spring loaded. I wish they made exactly that without the spring base. Thanks, Philip! Maybe I'll just get it. If it causes any grief I'm sure a local grip will buy it off me. Hmm... I don't care for the merging of replies.

    Avenger A5017 for boom

    Interesting. The unit I'm referring to breaks down quite small, though it would be better if the wheels were quick-release.

    Ha! Well that isn't it, but not bad.

    Avenger A5017 for boom

    Anyone use the Avenger A5017 for boom pole? It's frequently used for client monitor. I get highly annoyed with how a C-Stand packs. Legs aren't super wide, but with a light pole and a sand bag it should be plenty sturdy. Plus wheels!

    That's a good looking bag though.
