    Hi, Thx Bernie, Senator, Larry, Marc et al for this thread; very helpful. The link to the 66-page wireless guide returns a 404, and I couldn't locate it on lectrosonic.com; any help locating a copy appreciated. mike

    COS11 with Tram 79 power capsules

    Hi, I'm trying to ascertain if COS-11d mics (Ta5 connectors) will work with Tram 79 capsules. I spoke with a tech from Plus24 (the dealer that Sanken Japan directed me to) and his response was "yes...most probably." But they've never tested directly. I have several tram 50s I use, wired via the 79 capsule and wireless via lectrosonic tx. I am trying to move into COS11s and hope not to have to buy separate power capsules when I want to go wired. Thx in advance, Mike
  6. Hi, Righto...that makes sense. Thank you for the help. best, Mike
  7. Hi, Thanks for the prompt replies. I have a question in to production re: scratch or a proper track, but haven't heard back yet. re: sync: I will follow your advice and slave the F8 and Arri to the master tentacle unit best, Mike
  8. Hi, I'm building up my prod sound experience and have a one-day doc shoot tomorrow in which I am doing two things new to me: - providing TC to the camera - sending a mix output from the recorder to the camera I'm feeding 3 lectro radio mics and a boom into a SD442, and then iso'd mics and a mix into a zoom F8. I've checked the JW posts and have gotten useful info; this is what I plan to do: 1. I'm renting a tentacle sync and plan to jam sync the F8, and the Amira via BNC in 2. I'm renting a lectro SRC receiver with two LT transmitters, outputting from the f8 to the Amira ch. 1 and 2, mic level in Any info re: unintended results appreciated. Thx, Mike

    Phase Interference questions

    Hi, Righto. I've been looking carefully at a film I am working on that incorporates interview footage, with a lav and a boom for the talent. The boom track seems to be about 5 subframes (in pro tools) later than the lav track. I'm not "sure" I can hear that difference - soloing each track and then listening to them both - but I've been moving the boom track to align with the lav (as much for practice as for effect). Thx, M

    Zoom F4

    To Samuel (zoom official); Has there been a listing of serial numbers beyond which the hardware issue was resolved? Mine is B70007263 Thx, Mike

    Phase Interference questions

    Hi, My general understanding of this phenomenon is that mics equally spaced apart in relation to a sound source, if mixed together, result in a degraded audio signal. For example, here is Audio-Technica's explanation: http://www.audio-technica.com/cms/site/f54c2e7c578b36f7/index.html My questions: 1. If the two mics consist of a lav (1' from actor's mouth) and a directional mic on a boom that moves to 1' (very close miking) would phase cancellation occur? I am assuming it would... 2. If one iso'd such mics, would they also produce cancellation if later mixed or layered in relation to each other? Thanks in advance, Mike
