    Hi! My name is Leonardo, and I am a fresh graduate from SAE Berlin. I have working experience in sound reinforcement and short film location recording. My main specialization is music mixing and film sound post-production, and I am currently moving into location sound freelancing!
  1. Sony UWP vs Sennheiser G3

    Hi guys, Thank you all for your feedbacks, very interesting! Especially the antenna mod, that cleared one of my biggest doubts (dropout, crackles, I unfortunately have a long list of instances in which it happened to me). Would it make sense to get a sk2000 just for the headphones output? Or a high AF out + low impedance HP could work just fine? Thanks again to everyone for all the inputs, I am appreciating them all!
  2. Sony UWP vs Sennheiser G3

    Hi Everyone, I am slowly building up my location kit, thinking about getting lavaliers now. Since I don't want to throw away money on equipment I will have to change, but at the same time I cannot afford Lectros yet, I was thinking about getting either Sony UWP D-16 or Sennheiser G3, to be later used as camera scratch audio or director feed. If I look on paper between these two, the Sony UWP comes out as a strong winner, being true diversity and a headphone output. From tests I saw, the range and clarity of signal transmission are clearly superior in the Sony, however the Sennheiser stock mics sound slightly better. Not a big deal, as I have in mind to get Sanken anyway. Still, in all the semi-professional works I did, I still have to find a pair of Sonys, with everyone using G3 ( I am based in Germany). Is there any particular reason for it that I am missing? Thanks for any insights on this matter! (Or any other matter I mentioned, I value any kind of opinion!) Leonardo
  3. Hello everyone, I recently got a Sennheiser mkh416 and a classic softie to go with it. During my first test (indoor) I noticed that the softie (to my ears) considerably improves the directionality and generally the sound of the mic (if compared to the mic naked). This came as a surprise to me, as I originally thought that the softie would just block the wind and damp the highs a bit. Am I being fooled or are there actual sound improvements with the use of a windjammer? Thank you in advance for any clarification, Leonardo
