  1. Proof that this company takes your ideas seriously. Not sure if I was the only one, but I requested the "cue marker" feature in September of 2015. Happy to see it come to life. Thanks Sound Devices! Adam
  2. Thanks @SBretzke for the pics!
  3. Hey! Who is using this product? https://ktekpro.com/product/ksqd1-k-tek-squid-universal-mount/ Has everyone tested it with their favourite transmitters? I see a Zaxcom in the photos, but what about Lectro HMA, Sennheiser SKP, etc? Insert photos if you have them. I haven't gone wireless on the boom yet but this seems like a great solution to keep the weight (and the controls) at the operator's end of the pole rather than the microphone end. Is it better and/or more versatile more than the sidekick transmitter module by K-tek? cheers Adam
  4. Cos11 tie-clip alternates

    I don't know about the rest of you, but I wouldn't get away with this on camera! Might pass with a smaller piece of black hushlav. But it really looks like an emergency rig to me. cheers Adam Pretty cool!
  5. Cos11 tie-clip alternates

    Thanks for the responses everyone. Are you referring to the Sennheiser MZQ 22? Or the MZQ 1? cheers A
  6. Cos11 tie-clip alternates

    Hey. Do any other manufacturers make a tie clip that fits the Sanken Cos-11 (other fits would be bonus) and is possibly less expensive than the OEM version? Would it be *that* hard to design a single, "universal" clip that works with all the popular lavs? cheers Adam
  7. Lectro SRc field reports?

    That is whacky. I'm gonna test that
  8. 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!
  9. Betso slate WTCS-1

    I saw one in store the other day an it was really slick. Want! A
  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. Lectro SRc field reports?

    care to share?
  13. 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
  14. Remote Audio Hi-Q Batteries

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