    Super CMIT and Zaxcom ZHD 743 setup

    Supercmits don't have built in radio transmitters.

    Super CMIT and Zaxcom ZHD 743 setup

    There are people on here who have English as their 2nd 3rd or 4th language. Needlessly calling something a transmitter or referring to the function of something as transmitting is unnecessary. Do I need to copy and paste the email from Zaxcom that says it won't do this?

    Yes, beginners don't read.

    Transmits is a bad choice of words when you are talking about a mic output. A beginner reading this is going to think there is some transmit function in an aes42 device.

    When you say aes42 "always transmits 2 channels" , are you saying the Zax transmitter always transmits 2 channels? The mic doesn't transmit anything.

    Super CMIT and Zaxcom ZHD 743 setup

    Hi Deian, I have this exact setup. Mine is dsp 1. But, I use the high cut on the transmitter. I have listened to that in post a lot. I think it sounds great. You mention gain on the trans, do you not change that? Whoa. Wait. I don't think you can send both the dsp and non dsp via 743. Are you sure your doing this? How? The aes42 cone is not stereo. What does "filters off" mean? You have thrown me another loop with inputting it into an SD, and not a Zaxcom. That will be the wild card in this discussion. I've never done that. But, hmm. There is a misprint in the original 788T manual, that I discovered, and SD was going to rewrite that. It was an aes42 mistake. Maybe that is part of the problem? I also notice you have another high pass in the mixer? Hmm. Ok, let me know if I can be of any further assistance. Sincerely, Martin

    Iron, Did you change modes back and forth in order to figure out the anamorphic tie in? Thank you, Martin

    Rechargeable battery management on location

    Well, I have a pelican that my mixer bag travels in. When I pull old batts(AA) out, I stick them in my back pockets. (DONT use my system for 9 volt batts. There are no 9 volts in my work.) The new batts are just piled into the front pouch of the mixer bag. If for some reason I need to go over with several new AA's, they go in front pockets, which are empty of keys, etc. But I almost never have to change more AA's than I can hold in my hand, and the mixer bag is usually right in front of me. When I get back to the pelican case I empty my pockets of the old batts. As far as mixer battery goes, I have 3 main batts that I use. I can go about 4.5 hours if I'm running 7 wireless. But usually, I just swap at lunch. The battery are numbered, 1 2 , and 3. I start day 1 with battery 1. I start day 2 with battery 2, etc. This way I'm not over using the first batt and under using the 2nd and 3rd batts. I do the same cycling, or try to, with the little ZMT batteries. Sometimes, if its convenient, I will car charge some of the zmt batteries, so there is less to do in a hotel room that night. Ok, that's about it. Oh, and in the slate, I do use rechargeables there. They last about 3 days per charge. Thanks, Martin

    Lectronics antennae for Zaxcom QRX200

    Hi Frode, well, I think Glenn nailed it when he said pixel could be a db. Where you're sitting or standing could make a db difference. If you were right here in front of me, I would want to see what you're looking at, yes. I'm just not sure at this point if there's much to see. Thank you, Martin

    Lectronics antennae for Zaxcom QRX200

    Frode, In your description you mention "electronics". I'm pretty sure you meant Lectrosonics. I'm an all Zaxcom guy, but aren't Lectro antennas BNC connectors? If they are, How did you plug them into a Zaxcom? What length were both antennas cut to? Thank you, Martin

    UCR 411A bad power input

    JCC, Hi, There is a zero percent chance that radio shack has it. Gotham might, I'm not sure. I might have it, I know have the connector for Zaxcom, because I'm a Zaxcom guy. See if Gotham has it, I guess your in NYC? Send me a private message if they don't have it. Thanks, Martin P.S., When you mentioned replacing the "joint" what were you talking about? M.W.

    UCR 411A bad power input

    JCC, are you a solderer? If so, I would simply replace the power plug on the receiver. That may easily fix the problem, you would only have down time of a few minutes, and it's just a few dollars. Thanks, Martin

    Mic Power Consumption

    Constantin, "more significantly" because of? I want to make sure I'm not missing something here. Also, that Neumann mic must have some serious downside, no one seems too excited about that one. Sincerely, Martin

    Mic Power Consumption

    Hello, And then there's the Schoeps 2U at a whopping 170ma. 7.7 times the power used of the DPA. Thanks, Martin
