  1. Gear Appraisal

    Gotcha. What time is lunch? I have several suitable quips ready. Best of luck on your new venture.
  2. Gear Appraisal

    Not to pee in your cereal, but if you and your partners can't be objective in the many, many business decisions you will be faced with......
  3. Rycote Mic Protector case

    I "borrowed" one of these yoga mat bags (~$20) from my wife to use when I only need light protection for a blimp kit. Lots of room and pockets to hold a WS6 kit loaded with a KMR82, small boom pole, batteries, adapters, etc. I keep it folded in my Pelican with whatever blimp kit I am carrying so that is immediately available for a hiking day or when I need to move quickly and don't require the full pelican for protection.
  4. Email for media question

    JWSound is an internet based resource. jw does door to door service (welcomed or not).
  5. Defending your Work

    I would have handled it a little bit differently, while biting my tongue... Why not split the mixed files and send them the two iso channels? It won't take long, the project moves on and everyone gets to live another day.
  6. I can believe that filming was done in one take, but would be very surprised if live take audio was all that was used. The IEMs used would be necessary to sync to studio audio and to receive music and choreography cues. I couldn't spot any audio rigging and the fact that there is no lift, footsteps, etc. noise in such a reverberant room. I could be wrong, but I am a Capricorn, so I doubt it.
  7. Zaxcom notch filters on rushes?

    I am not a fan of "fix it in post", but this may be a time to apply an exception and do the surgery in RX, when required.
  8. Zaxcom notch filters on rushes?

    It appears to be notching at the 2k target frequency and harmonics, up to 12k, as shown in the RX screen capture.
  9. Soundfield on the cheap?

    Will yield an incredible sound field of the mechanical noises of a dslr and operator.
  10. I like using black cable (less visible in public performance or plants) with coloured rings for input ID and coloured heat shrink/strain relief for length ID.
  11. Since the MixPre10T does not have direct outs for each mic pre, I don't see how a mixer will be of any benefit for real-time mixing. You could mix the streamed USB audio via your DAW, with each track placed in record monitor mode and a midi control surface providing the faders. I am not sure of the latency this setup will introduce, but it is likely to be significant, and unacceptable to anyone used to receiving a near real-time mix from a conventional mixer setup. The other option is to use a conventional mixer as the front end of your system and providing a split signal (either through the direct outs of the mixer, or (preferred) via a mic level pre-split) to the 10T. Both of the above methods are cludgy and require a lot of extra gear and cabling.
  12. OT: Best all-round DI box?

    I keep 4 Radial PRODI and 1 each of JDI and J48 in my kit. They sound great, are built like tanks and never fail. I have no reason to look for anything else.
  13. Sony MDR 7506 coiled cable

    Dave, thanks for that simple, yet effective, trick. Just reached over the desk, grabbed my pair and gave it a go. I am a fan of the Audio Technica ATHM50x, partly because of the 3 sets of detachable cables (curly cord, straight cord with regular adaptable 1/8">1/4" plug and shorter straight cord with slim 1/8" plug that fits the smaller gap in cell phone cases) they include in the package.
  14. Recording 160dB?

    What is the point of recording it at that level? I highly doubt anyone is ever going to play it back at that level. If it is a reality based show the zinger could be that the system is so loud it can't be recorded without blowing up your gear (...cue the pink smoke). BTW, if you do record it, make sure you leave at least 12dB of headroom on your recorder. We wouldn't want the signal to clip....LOL
  15. How to hide a Sennheiser ME 2 on talent

    Have you removed the windscreen to make it less bulky?
