  1. For the Whisky drinkers

    There's nothin' quite like the depth found in certain aged cask strengths - Coming to the bottom of a Adelphi Caol Illa - outrageous stuff - too easy to drink
  2. For the Whisky drinkers

    80 proof is 40% alcohol - anything above from that is better with a drop of water anyways
  3. You're asking in the context of getting a feed to your cart/bag for your own reference tho hey?
  4. 2 frames not too bad, a good dialog editor can see about a 1/4 frame out but ( my theory ) is most people won't see this but will still feel like something's not right - depends if you're mixing to the picture somewhat - im getting a feed that's 11 frames from vid split or 5.5 frames delay if I use the Qtake stream and it's a PITA
  5. Advice on sound kit R4+/SD/Zax/Zoom

    I disagree with the above comments. I think it's well worth getting some kit, aim for decent used stuff - the Sonosax is maybe overkill to start with - the other 2 recorders will likely be a useful back up ( or Renter ) for a good while if you do upgrade - I would also look at a 633 it covers 90% of my gigs, as does 3 wires and a boom. IFB you can start with a couple and add as you go - G3s are great - get the best boom you can afford ( ie a step up from the Rode ) you'll never regret it
  6. 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.
  7. DPA 4061 + MKH50 compatibility

    Yes, but phasing cancellation has nothing to do with the brand of microphone, it's the relative position of the mics to each other
  8. Tentacle Sync - Red Epic-W

    AFAIK Reds are fairly fussy about the TC voltage
  9. DPA 4098 Noise Floor

    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
  10. DPA 4098 Noise Floor

    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
  11. SD 633 WAV File Shorter Than Expected ... Recovery?

    accidental record tap?
  12. How close is too close?

    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 -
  13. How to wire a hairy talent

    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
  14. wingman?

    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
  15. Shill bidding on Trew used auctions ?

    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.
