  1. I've bought 3 of the short cable type and found them to be really unreliable - 2/3 failed in short time and I ended up cutting them up wiring the lavs direct, the adaptor cables aren't great.
  2. Yes, but phasing cancellation has nothing to do with the brand of microphone, it's the relative position of the mics to each other
  3. AFAIK Reds are fairly fussy about the TC voltage
  4. I've found the cubs to sound amazing at times, taking a lot of gain and seeming to lift the voice out without the car noise coming up too much - However I've tried them in other situations and been perplexed by the way they sounded - Centre stage for an opera recording for some low stage edge stuff - so 'crunchy' sounding, but truly fantastic for a cello spot for a tricky quartet recording I did
  5. Must say I was surprised recently when I got 2 4099's intending to use them for car shots. I thought there was something wrong with the 302 the noise floor was so high. Better sounding and slightly quieter using the xlr adaptors but not by much - I'll wait and see if they're a win over the cubs, yet to use in anger
  6. accidental record tap?
  7. Right on the forehead is too close for an 8060 IMHO - 50 never really too close - they can always roll a bit of presence out later, unless maybe it's the only mic you have and the shots are superwide and tight -
  8. Yeah I've carried a couple of cheap vests in the car a coupletimes lately when there's going to be a few guys on wires and no wardrobe
  9. I found this odd if we're referring to the same thing - on the iphone at least you need to swipe onto the second screen meter view for wireless track arming I found this odd if we're referring to the same thing - on the iphone at least you need to swipe onto the second screen meter view for wireless track arming
  10. All good - I've had good dealings with Trew in the past, and thought this was quite weird. Our local auction site in NZ is not the silent auction style, so I'm fairly unfamiliar with it.
  11. Shouldn't have wasted your breath, or assumed that I haven't....
  12. So what's the deal, anyone know - I'm trying to get a few bits of gear and put bids on a few things on the used sales of Trew. I've seen these things sitting at the same price for weeks then within minutes of me bidding I get an email to say I've been outbid. Do they automatically put bids on till you hit the reserve?
  13. it's in the menu - playback to headphones only - not very convenient tho
  14. Read the manual
  15. What's the sound equivalent of auteur ? because this thread is that
