  1. Burnout, stress, depression: experiences?

    When I first started in the industry about 12-13 years ago I worked for about the first 2 years in a busy production office without really having a lunch break - I broke down after a while and became really angry and sad and had to take 6 weeks off to stare out the window. It was an amazing experience that I value to this day - I learnt a lot about myself and where my 'edges' were. It's good to know ones limits, there's possibly better ways of discovering them
  2. DPA 4098 - first impressions

    Last rig I did I ran cables to a 302 and sent line level to my bag, I'm using 4099s tho I think they're lower sensitivity.
  3. Delivering files from multiple recorders

    Beauty - thank you sir - this is very useful
  4. Lectrosonics SMWB coming soon?

    oh there we go - I'll defer to Phil on this one - I've got a few complaints about premiere pro exports myself!
  5. Lectrosonics SMWB coming soon?

    Protools ( and I imagine pretty much all audio post software ) has settings to convert all ingested files to same sample rate/bit depth automatically and/or supports mixed formats anyways - it's kinda a non-issue if you ask me
  6. 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
  7. For the Whisky drinkers

    80 proof is 40% alcohol - anything above from that is better with a drop of water anyways
  8. You're asking in the context of getting a feed to your cart/bag for your own reference tho hey?
  9. 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
  10. 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
  11. 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.
  12. 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
  13. Tentacle Sync - Red Epic-W

    AFAIK Reds are fairly fussy about the TC voltage
  14. 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
