  1. Lavalier outer jacket repair

    problem: it was a DPA and the shrink tubing wasn't going to fit over either end of the mic. Had to cut the microdot and terminate permanent w. ta5. Not such a bad thing!
  2. Betso slate WTCS-1

    I saw one in store the other day an it was really slick. Want! A
  3. Lavalier outer jacket repair

    Hey! I have a mic (DPA 4060) with a torn outer jacket, halfway up the cable. Microphone seems fine, no damage to the shield or cabling itself. Anyone have repair methods to share? A particular gauge of heat-shrink, type of tape, or liquid repair? cheers Adam
  4. BDS Battery + AC

    Agree. Not to say, "don't do it" but I had the same thought and eventually come to the same conclusion. A 6-series recorder can swap power sources, so if you're a sit-down with a boom you still have the boom. Also if you're doing a sit-down with wires you should have ample time to keep an eye on battery levels. And with Hi-Q batteries those times are longer than ever. For the amount of time/$ it could cost to implement the A/C system you could just buy more batteries. Maybe run two battery shoes in parallel so you can hot-swap them? That's the feature that I would want. Pull the battery mid-take and swap without powering down. A
  5. Lectro SRc field reports?

    care to share?
  6. Lectro SRc field reports?

    Here's a thought about the SRc software, and forgive me if it had been covered already. Smarttune: Once you scan to find your perfect frequency, the number only blinks once or twice on the screen. Then it goes away and asks you to sync. Great if you're using LTs. Bad if you're using SMs. By the time you reach down to set your transmitter the number has disappeared. Click click and you're back to the home screens to find your new frequency and then back into the smarttune feature a second time for the 2nd channel. Was this all intentional? cheers adam
  7. Remote Audio Hi-Q Batteries

    I'm also surprised it has taken them this long...

  10. Interest Rate for Late Payments

    True *threatens finger over the stop button on his recorder*
  11. Interest Rate for Late Payments

    I set my invoicing software to add 2% monthly after 30 days. Most clients don't pay it, but I think it can be a good part of your business image; you run a tight ship. Agreed that you're not going to go after anyone (that you like) for that money. But ain't it funny that the phone company charges you dinky fees like this and everyone pays them... A
  12. Mixing from a Follow Van, Safari Trip

    I did a gig not long ago where I had smqv's on police officers (vest front pouch) and G3s on visors. Receiving from a follow car, G3s were winning almost all day against an SRc. Transmitters up in the air > transmitters with blood/water/Kevlar in the way! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. super hot levels on lectro tx

    Just to clarify - you can only send tone from rx to mixer, not tx to rx. It's helpful in getting those trims to match between 1-3 and 4-6. Glad you worked it out. Cheers Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. super hot levels on lectro tx

    Use the test tones on the SRs - make sure they're all matched. I set them to 0dbfs (or -1)with the limiters off. That's max modulation from the transmitter so there's no way you can clip at the mixer - shows you exactly how much headroom is at the transmitter. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
