  1. C, I'm no post mixer but I do get in there and play around with the files just to see what I could have done better, and I really think it has more to do with what job you're doing. If you have off axis noise to deal with, it's the digital Schoeps. If you are sound staging, it would be, in my case, the DPA 4017. The ability for the Schoeps to reject reverb is far superior to the DPA. I think subject to mic distance greatly comes into play. The "reach" from the digital Schoeps is far greater. So, pick your poision I guess. As far as setting 2, which was part of your question, again, what are you recording? If your working on something noisy, like "Billy Bob's Goat farm and Dry Cleaning Wars" season 2, then the Schoeps might be best, unless you need to pickup grandpa way off axis arguing with the tv over who stole the horse on Bonanza in the background. Sincerely, Martin
  2. Alen, Maybe it was just someone's way of remembering? So they could keep them separated? As in, I see what the hop is, so I just have to keep everything below that? In other words, leaving out actual frequencies, if my hop is on 20, then I know I have 1-10 available for talent. Where as, if I have my hop on 10, then I can't get farther away using 1-9, or 11-20 for talent. Sincerely, Martin
  3. Daniel, Thank you for the input. I don't know whats going on with it. Tuesday it blasted a director, yesterday, it's working fine. I guess I will just test it everytime I hand it to someone. I feel like I might be doing something, I just don't know what I might have started doing, that I didn't do for a long time before that. It might be a combination of something, that would explain why I can't duplicate it now. Obviously when you're in the middle of working you can't say "Hey everybody, let's come to a work stoppage so I can play with my equipment and figure something out." Thank you. Sincerely, Martin
  4. Patrick, A couple of things. I just tried it and now it works fine. It works on multiple erx's, so I'm guessing it is a Nomad issue? So it is intermittent, I just don't know if I did anything to cause it working or not working. Also, you mentioned that you are on Nomad v.7.81. I never had a problem in the 7.81 era. Certainly someone would have said something, probably a lot of something, if I had blasted them with tone. Thanks again for your help. Sincerely, Martin
  5. Patrick, What version Nomad software are you on? I can't think of anything else that could be different from yours to mine. Thanks again. Sincerely, Martin
  6. Patrick, Thank you for checking yours, I am not in front of them right now, but I think they are 2.11. Are you turning on the switch that says 1k filter on in the ERX menu? Is that how your blocking it? And can you cycle your 1k switch on and off to see if you can here it and go back and forth to see if you can block and unblock it? Also, what are you using to send tone to the ERX, what device? Sincerely, Martin
  7. Afew, Yes, Thanks, that was a bit of a joke. Well, I really am considering putting a plug in device that would simply go between whatever someone is wearing, a type of inline 1k filter, and the erx. Sincerely, Martin
  8. Hello, Who all is having the issue with the ERX no longer filtering out the test tone sent to it for camera use? And, how are you dealing with this? If you have them mounted on camera, and as a comtek, do you just yell out, "Everyone who has a headset on, take it off for a minute." And has anyone figured out how to "fix" this? I guess I could build headsets with 1k filters built in. Those with useless smarmy responses can go smarm on another post. Sincerely, Martin
  9. Hello all, Someone write the closing scene for this one. I'm really curious how this one ends. Sincerely, Martin
  10. RP, In the beginning of this, you indicated that you tried different receivers and that many other people, including scripty, haven't complained. You could just do what I do, have the scripty and director swap. And if the scripty doesn't have a problem, then either the scripty is deaf, the problem is with the human, or the scripty wants the director shipped off to the loony bin. I have had someone tell me their ERX sounded odd, or whatever, and I have handed them my Nomad headpones, and they still heard the noise. We then started handing my Nomad HP to different people and not one other person could hear a problem. We had some laughs over that. But it was the end of "I hear a noise in my ERX". Sincerely, Martin
  11. Pin, There are a lot of things you can mix and match that aren't on manufacturers websites. I can use the old aes42 attachment on one of the old transmitters to send to rx200 also, but it might not be on there site, because they don't make them anymore. I don't think their hiding anything, or coy. You have to admit, the 742 or 743 is an odd form factor to do this with. With the old transmitter, I can turn the trans power all the way down, keep it about 3.5 feet (about a meter) away from the other receivers, and have no interference. Sincerely, Martin
  12. Pin, Which definition of the word Coy are you referring to? What is meant by your question, what are you trying to gather? sincerely, Martin
  13. Ducky, you want a picture of the back of the micplexor? Sincerely, Martin
  14. Ducky, No, ashamedly, but since the micplexor is not putting out big wattage, I'm sure I'm ok. It hasn't burned my hand yet. Ha. Sincerely, Martin
  15. Derek, I prefer to just "load" the device, making it think there is something there for it to do. I'm just inclined to think this way. This does not mean I'm right. Sincerely, Martin A termination is a one-port device with an impedance that matches the characteristic impedance of a given transmission line. It is attached to a certain terminal or port of a device to absorb the power transmitted to that terminal or to establish a reference impedance at that terminal. Important parameters of a termination are its VSWR and power handling capacity. In a receiver, terminations are usually placed at various unconnected ports of components such as hybrid and power dividers to keep the VSWR of the signal path low. It is extremely important that the isolated port in a directional coupler and the unused port of a power divider (i.e., only three ports of a four-way power divider are used) be properly terminated. All of the design considerations of directional couplers and power dividers are based on the fact that all ports are terminated with matched loads. If an unused port is not properly terminated, then the isolation between the output ports will be reduced which may severely degrade the performance of the receiver.A termination is the terminology used to refer to a low power, single terminal device intended to terminate a transmission line. Similar devices designed to accommodate high power are generally termed dummy loads.
