  1. Show me your bag

    Love my setup Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Wireless

    I hate the “it depends” but it’s completely true, I would rent them and use them in a couple of features, then you will know for sure. I thought Lectros were better for me and I made the “mistake” of buying them without trying other high-end brands. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Wireless

    I don’t like it and the service I’ve heard it’s not good. But maybe in Europe it’s better, I’m in LA. Not a popular brand here in US. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Wireless

    You described the pros and cons pretty good. I personally use lectrosonics but it’s true I’ve had problems with my two SRC units, one because of RF problems and the other because of screen “bleeding”. I will stick to them tho because I prefer not to have plastic transmitters that talent can destroy, and because I would have to change too many units... My advice, there is no perfect wireless, but either way you go with Zaxcom or Lectrosonics you will have the best quality. PD: Zaxcom can record while transmitting so if you are in a very tricky RF environment you’re good. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Lectrosonics SMWB coming soon?

    So yes confirmed and will be announced probably Monday. Amazing units!!!! Recorder integrated! Wide band! Water resistant! 100mWats! SM shape! And more!!! Wow I will buy like 4 right away! Not sure yet if single or double battery, have to thing about it. Best, Manuel. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Is a new Sound Devices MixPre-10T coming soon?

    So basically SD has provided the prosumers with a complete set of options for recording, but are they really a substitute for the 6 series? Not really. Just getting closer and the difference of price doesn't make any sense anymore... I don't know, I'm buying a brand new 633 but I feel I'm paying too much seeing these new devices....

  7. Looking to purchase Srb or Src system - advice needed.

    Both work great, but I would go for a SRC for many reasons: 1. Wide band, you have 3 blocks to pick not just one. 2. Smartune, super convenient, fast and reliable. 3. Will keep value longer. 4. Compatibility with other devices (SL6?) But if you really want a lectrosonics and don't have the money for the SRC, the SRB it's great too, just be careful with what block it's the best in your area... Best, Manuel.

  8. SRCs screen "bleeding"

    Hello guys, this is the second unit I've got brand new with the same problem, when I got them they were fine but after like one week using them the screen start having like a bleeding (see picture). The unit works perfect but the screen doesn't feel right. Did this happen to any of you? It's just a defective batch? Is it normal? Thanks in advance. Manuel. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Large blimp vs smaller blimp

    I didn't see the joke, my mistake, please accept my apologies. Regarding the video there are basically two set ups. One without the fur for both blimps and then they add the fur to the Cinela, which it's not fair for the Rycote. I just find them better than the rycote, call it personal preference if you like... but I'd say everyone here would say the same if they try both. All the best. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Large blimp vs smaller blimp

    We call death cat to furs here in Los Angeles, you can go to sleep knowing a new thing buddy. And no, they are not using any fur in some of the tests, and then they use the long one on others, have you seen a Cinela ever? Why this bullshit? Just help the guy of the post, one guy telling is not a good test but giving NO reasons and the other who doesn't know what is a dead cat (fur) and never seen a cinela giving useless points to the matter. Have a nice day. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Large blimp vs smaller blimp

    Please tell us, I couldn't see anything. And don't say deathcat because neither of them are using them. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Large blimp vs smaller blimp

    Here is a video where you can hear the difference between the best rycote and cinela, just impressive: https://youtu.be/rQ95l5cIexk I use Schoeps CMiT 5u, Schoeps CMC641, DPA 4017b, Sanken CS3, and before them I've had the Sennheiser MKH60, MKH50, some AT... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. DPA 4061 + MKH50 compatibility

    Someone told me that DPAs lavs and DPA mics match perfect in terms of phasing, that if you review the phase charts you will see how good the are together. I haven't check them yet but if that's true brand matters. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Lectrosonics SMWB coming soon?

    Lighter, smaller, sounds better w/ personalized setup for different lavs, fixed antena but better built and stronger than 50 antenas of my smqv, better battery life than 2 rechargeable AAs for the smqv. It's just another tool, you keep one tool in your pocket that I will keep two Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. How to hide a Sennheiser ME 2 on talent

    Your sound is gonna be shit and you're gonna be remembered as the shitty sound mixer. Just tell them that's a piece of crap and you don't mix that. Just boom. Make them learn that sound is important and needs some budget. If he says he loves the ME2 you're just telling us how ignorant is that person... You Tell him how to do sound, not the other way around. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
