  1. Spring Clean

    I think you only need 5 posts (or around there) and then the Buy and Sell section will appear.
  2. Is a new Sound Devices MixPre-10T coming soon?

    It looks like the end of October.
  3. Cleaning a Schoeps CMC 4/5/6 and capsules

    That's great info, thanks!
  4. Does anyone have any advice or information on the best way to clean the connections on a Schoeps CMC 4/5/6 and the capsules (MK41 specifically)? I have a CMC4 that was modded by Pete Verrando to P48, so apparently Schoeps won't clean/service it. I had an issue with humidity when using it a couple months back and I have read that it may be because there is some dirt or debris on the connection. I am going to be putting a Cut 1 filter in place so I'd like to get the connections all cleaned up and then leave it screwed together to protect against further humidity issues. Update: I found this short piece from Redding Audio: http://www.reddingaudio.com/downloads/Schoeps Technical/Schoeps Basic Care Mics - Hmty.pdf Anyone have any experience cleaning these? I might look into getting a Vark dry tube as well.
  5. Is a new Sound Devices MixPre-10T coming soon?

    Is this shipping right away? Sorry if I missed that info.

  7. MixPre-6 – worth it for this beginner?

    See, I’ve thought this and I know it’s correct, though I worked with a mixer and have seen a lot of online commenters who say otherwise. I agree with you but I’m just evaluating my options. No matter what the online commentators have to say, I would rather have a 416 into a Zoom F4 than an ME66 into a Cantar X3.
  8. Purchasing 2 mics for film: 8060 w/MZF 8000 & MKH-50?

    Here's a quick comparison video of the Mixpre-6/Zoom F8/633 that Curtis Judd released on Youtube:
  11. DIY sound for micro budget film

    I will check them out. Hope it's going well!
  12. on-camera hypercarioid X/Y to reject op's noises?

    Someone should let Shure know about that so they can update their website...
  13. on-camera hypercarioid X/Y to reject op's noises?

    It seems like you're complicating it too much. For your situation, a simple on camera shotgun like a Rode VideoMic might work fine. Even better, the Shure Lenshopper VP83F has an onboard microSD recorder and you can also send a backup to the camera. You can do some basic things to cut down on the noise that you are making with footsteps and such. If it's inside, take off your shoes, don't wear noisy materials, etc. Hope that helps.
  14. DIY sound for micro budget film

    I'm curious, what were the names of the films you made in the past (that were distributed)? Good luck on the rest of the film.
  15. Sound Devices Mix Pre-3 and Mix Pre-6

    If you click through to the SoundCloud page, it lists what the setup is. If I remember correctly, the MP6 is in the left channel and the 633 is in the Right.
