  1. Am awaiting a response from Soundcraft (Harman), hopefully soon! Good shout about a bench tech
  2. Hi Philip yes I've got a copy of this manual, and have taken the front panel off to try adjusting tone level sensitivity, and L&R sensitivity, but to no avail. The tone level changes even when pressing the illumination button on/off?! I'm guessing there's a problem in the internal power circuit somewhere. Thanks for the link though!
  3. No experience of 55B/66B, but have used ECM-77B pretty extensively and is a very good lav mic option. Not quite the same detail in high-end as the Cos11 but an excellent choice
  4. Have just come across an old Soundcraft LM1 mixer that I'd like to dust down and get working properly again. If anyone is familiar with this mixer i'd like to know how to adjust the 1khz tone generator level so it hits 4ppm/0dbu when the master L-R is up to 0. At the moment tone is lining up between 4.5-6PPM when I'm adjusting the needle sensitivity with a tweaker (doesn't go any lower). Thanks in advance!
  5. Just wondering how these Bluetooth devices have been working in the field? Any good? Or too much latency/battery issues?
  6. Hi Martin it'll be used primarily as a feed from foh desks (I have inline barrel attenuators), and I could also use the cable to make my dynamic mics "wireless". 6-pin lemo to plug into Micron Explorer 100 TXs
  7. Forgive me if this has already been covered, but could not find in a search. I'm looking to contruct a female xlr > 6 pin lemo for micron cable. Does anybody know how the hot/cold/shield from the starquad xlr female cable terminates onto the 6 pin lemo (for micron-style connectors). I solder xlr cables very frequently but haven't tried soldering lemo connectors before (I gather they can be very fidgety!) but fancy having a go in some down-time. Any tips much appreciated!
  8. Hi bash The item was not about Kew, just using the Christmas lights/installations as backdrops. Yes just smile and do the best you can in the situation you're in - that's the best we can do!
  9. Just finished a shoot in Kew Gardens - call sheet stated to work around flight noise issues. The loc is directly underneath the Heathrow flight path. Luckily, we were only recording links 30sec-1min in length so stuck a radio on and tried to go between the worst of the flight noise (the ones which caused particular issues were the planes where you could see faces in the windows!). Has anyone filmed at this location, and if so, what was your workflow for shooting anything longer than a minute or so? Try and shoot in 'chunks' in between the worst of flight noise (very difficult in an interview situation I guess), let it go and rely on post smoothing cuts with more flight noise, or just say not possible and suggest alternative location?
  10. They were amateur youth cyclists so no data being logged and no comms sent to a coach on the side. That crank data transmitting to the small cpu on their handlebars could be an issue - not that I noticed they had any. I'll have a better look at the actual bikes next time I'm down there. Thanks for the suggestion
  11. Recently I've been recording doc interviews on a velodrome-style track (outdoors), with the interviewee around 10m from camera, long lens for depth of field. I had the guy on a radio mic, but was getting strange rf hits whenever a group of track cyclists (5-6) came past me (around 2m away, but not cutting through shot). Problem solved when I moved to other side of camera. Just wondering if anyone has an idea why this rf intereference would happen so much, to an extent that it's affecting my receiver? I had direct line of sight to the radio mic at all times. Anyone else had these issues when around group cyclists?
  12. I've managed to get a cos11 placed in hair with bobby pins with some success, when clothing rustle is an issue
  13. Something like the iRig could work, but could be cumbersome. Maybe just use the on-board smartphone mic, since it's going to look like it's shot on a phone anyway??
  14. More than 2 people being interviewed at once? Depends on type of format, camera style (on sticks/handheld/lighting etc), what the desired workflow is in post. If it sounds good all on boom - do it on boom. You can radio up to 4 and mix that, or a combo of mixing main talkers on one channel with radios and boom on other channel. If they'd prefer isos then they'd need to have a discussion with production....
  15. Could even go all-out and get a mic flag with the productions graphic on it
