    Large blimp vs smaller blimp

    The first line under the video was: Private test made by Philippe CHENEVEZ That moment I closed the tab and forgot about it. "the only statistics you can trust are those you falsified yourself" :-) I am not saying he faked anything but a comparison made by the founder of the manufacturer of one of the products.....mmmmh

    Production Mix Structure

    Okay I think I am piling up misunderstandings... I am just saying a boom in a wide shot or a so called ambience mic don't differ. They both add acoustics of course. I would never not boom any scene ever (so why record an additional ambience mic esp in a wide shot). I am still onto this ambience mic which Tom mentioned very very early in this post. All answers I am getting are about 101 of production sound recording and how they mix it in the post. I know all that, so I think my posts are being misunderstood. Cheers To this, how can the answer be this: Feels like a superweird pingpong Answering with the most basic 101 acoustics I don't get it, sorry

    Production Mix Structure

    Jez, this is pretty clear to me. I also do dialogue editing on features. I am still wrapping my head around that ambience mic. Okay it is off axis vs on axis on a boom in a wide shot. But on an interior scene how will the ambience mic ever be without the actors voices? Pointed to the ceiling or not....

    Recording applause in Germany - Advice

    Zeigermann_Audio in Hamburg, Kortwich in Berlin. I am missing an aquivalent in Cologne, since this is closer to Marl. Maybe someone can chip in on this. I'd rather record it with 3 MKH 50's, or even 40's.

    Production Mix Structure

    I think you should consider distinguishing between what you mix to your ears and what you record to your device. Yes make a monomix, BUT record a split track. Booms to L, lavs to R. Listen to LR mono and also send L+R summed to IFB, video village and maybe camera. This way for everyone listening and for playback you have the Monomix, but the editor has a tiny bit more freedom in using your audio by having a split track. They should pan both tracks in the middle anyway, no such thing as listening to stereo L Boom and R Lavs. But then at least they can for example when two actors hugging each other and you didnt manage to fully close the lavs, they can mute this moment on the lav track and keep sound for screenings consistent without touching the isos. Trust me they will thank you. The less they have to touch your isos in picture editorial the happier they will be. I see no harm in recording a split track while listening in mono. It is a huge benefit. So good luck on your shoot. But with this community backing you up you wont have a problem. Keep us in the loop and just shoot when you have more questions.

    Schoeps CMR vs. Colette cable

    Yes did that No its not smaller, the "head" of the CMR is a tiny bit bigger than the one of the colette. Maybe 7-10 mm dont have it here yet. But afaik Colette is not a good option as boom mic since it is unbalanced and I guess sensitive to handling noise. Yes I read this one also. But it is about the CMR itself, not a comparison to the Collete setup.

    Schoeps CMR vs. Colette cable

    Hi folks, I recently bought Colette cables for my Mk41's, to use them as a very small plant mics and also in cars. Then 2 weeks later I discovered the Schoeps CMR to put it straight into your transmitter, which is ideal for my purpose. Schoeps offers me to send the Colette back because I think I don't need them anymore. But I am wondering if I am missing something. Is there a possible scenario where I would need the Colette's over the CMR. Or where they would outperform the CMR. Thanks and yes....first world problems :-)

    Production Mix Structure

    As you say it yourself. Le creme de la creme. Wish I could have a 2nd boom on every film I do, not very common here in Germany, only very big top notch features have this. And a 2nd boom mic and an ambient mic is quite a difference. Can't imagine myself recording a track that is only roomy, noisy, reverby of a scene.

    Not too bad. Actually quite good. From Congo :-)
