  1. iPad Mini Mount For Sound Cart

    Tether Tools : http://tethertools.com I use an older model of what these guys make. The new aerotab looks great. Ayush
  2. MKH8060 weird noise

    Travelling this week but I'll put it up when I'm back. My 8040s (from 2012) are ringless whereas the replaced 8060s and 8050 have a ring. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. MKH8060 weird noise

    Does your 8060 have the silver ring in between the xlr connector module and the microphone? I got Sennheiser to replace my 8060s and 8050 as a part of warranty replacement. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. New iPower 9V alternative from Tenergy

    Been using soshine 650's as well for a few years now and they're rock solid. The earlier 600's had problems that seem to have been fixed. Been trying out etinesan 900's for almost a year, no complaints so far. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Ideal Body Mic Rig?

    Hi Randy, I've used DPAs with the remote audio micro cat (because of its size) as wind protection mounted to the forehead in a broadway mount style for some wild recordings which had lots of movement - products from bubblebee and rycote would be worth looking at too. I didn't use headbands but hairclips and a piece of tape at the end. I find that the headset mics don't have the same tone and pickup much more sibilance, some times so much so that it feels too close miked at times and not "real". The head mount on the other hand can pickup a lot of nasal sounds/whines especially if your actor has a cold or blocked nose but sounds very much like a boom. Best, Ayush
  6. Sennheiser ifb system opinions

    Hi Constantin, what Tx do you use from the bag? Also - do you not have to change any focus/mono settings on the receiver at all? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Sennheiser ifb system opinions

    I use the sr300 IEM as a stereo transmitter from the cart with G3 IEMs with focus on either channel - L is for mix and R for boom op. I feed my slate mic into the R channel for boom op comms. I've found that heat shrink on the antenna helps keep them straight and protected. I also use 3M car paint protection film on all my IEMs to save them from scratches and drops. In fact I've put them as screen guards on most of my equipment. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Alexa Mini TC sync

    David M - The R/A lemo link I posted above are most definitely knock-offs, but they have been rock solid over 6 months of shoot. I had to buy them at the last minute, when the Alexa Mini turned up on a Stab head and so i found these online. Mike - The earlier firmware versions of the Alexa Mini had horrible timecode issues and even the manual stated that TC was mostly unreliable (so was audio over SDI). The new version seems to hold TC well but since i've always had a tentacle mounted on it, i'm happy to go that way. Though with the new firmware updates I'd be more comfortable to now Jam TC at every battery change if I had to. The location of the TC port makes things difficult for re-jams (not as painful as the RED), depending on how they have built the camera. Also, the standard Alexa XT/XR/SXT has an ambient timecode chip inside it, which the mini does not. Best, Ayush
  9. Alexa Mini TC sync

    I've been using the Alexa mini for a good few months on a stab head with tentacles for sync. No TC issues what so ever. I bought these off eBay (link below) and modded the tentacle cables. Yes, the cable exits the plug downwards - I wish it was rotatable. The TC plug needs to be pulled out to change cards and the DIT is well aware of this so double checks TC after card changes. I wish the 3.5mm trs on the tentacle was lockable, as in the process of card changes and the cable being pulled I've had that side pop out a couple of times - and so we always check TC after a card change.

  10. What 9 volt rechargeables do you use? Li-ion or Nimh?

    Ive been using Soshine Li-ion 9V 650mAh and so far the experience has been good. They Power my Denecke PS1A's all day long. There was an earlier 600mah model which was terrible and prone to failures. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. BBC Stereo Requirement - Still MS?

    Hi Chris, i've worked on various BBC radio programs in the past. This spec requires that your "program mix be mono compatible". What this means is that L and R should not have out of phase content that could completely cancel out when mixed down to mono. The reference to M and S comes from the tradition of PPM metering, where apart from using the PPM for level you can also set it to MS mode to check mono compatibility. Check out PPMulator as they have a very good software version of both PPM and MS settings. Ive attached a screen shot - If the yellow needle exceeds the white needle then there is out of phase content that will cancel out in mono. Best, Ayush
  12. I've tested a VRfield with BNC out to a PSC multi sma going into a set of SRbs. LPDA and dipole going into VRfield. Worked fine. So i assume it should work for the SL6. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Jam syncing to the Arri Alexa

    Check Sensor FPS and Project FPS? - Press the info button and choose Fps to view all the set rates. Its usually the first thing i check Ayush

  15. Canon 5D MKII audio problem...

    I've had the same problem with a mkII. Hard wired line in as a scratch track for a plural eyes workflow. Audio would show up on the 5D meters while setting gain but would not get recorded to CF. Internal camera mic would record just fine. Never managed to figure it out. Ended up using the internal mic and a dumb slate for safety.
