  1. Show me your bag

    I’m also pretty curious myself.
  2. Portabrace “Silent” audio bags.

    Just came across these new Portabrace bags. The AO-1SILENT (“lightweight” model) and AO-1.5SILENT look the same from the front, plus here’s the latter from the top: Video demo: Images from their newsletter announcement: PR copy excerpt:
  3. Portabrace “Silent” audio bags.

    There’s a video of one of the Silent bags up on YouTube. Not very flattering:

  5. Sound Devices Mix Pre-3 and Mix Pre-6

    Can’t get over how cute this setup looks.
  6. Stumbled upon this during my perusing of Gotham Sound’s used section: a Mac Mini modded by Gotham with Hirose power input. Interested how this came about and what kind of workflow it fit into.
  7. Hirose-powered Mac Mini.

    Good points!
  8. Help support this site

    You actually still need SSL on that web page, as Donorbox explains. My filmmaking group also uses Donorbox embeds and I myself had to set up SSL on our website. CloudFlare is an easy way to get SSL – Donorbox also has their own tutorial for connecting CloudFlare and Weebly. Digression: SSL on here would be neat too, for secure logins!
  9. Hirose-powered Mac Mini.

    Thanks for the link. Curious what would make this a better solution for some people over a laptop.
  10. Possible Betso TCX-2+ issue?

    Curious as to what any Betso users think about this. If you can’t watch the video, Jim Keaney summed it up:
  11. David Letterman new show

    Might also cut down on wind noise
  12. David Letterman new show

    A frame from the scene in question: Letterman’s beard doesn’t reach his sternum, which is a good place for a lav. I’d have to guess they used a lav mounted in that area with wind protection fur. I wouldn’t rule out a skilled boom op, perhaps with a CS-3 or 416.
  13. Accounting Software- alternative to PAID?

    I use Wave for invoicing, which sounds pretty similar to Jon’s suggestion. No complaints.
  14. TentacleSync E review

    Over here: Looks like the thread continued for a bit explaining that you didn’t need Sync Studio to use Tentacle’s timecode, though I read “lack of Windows support” and stopped right there.
  15. TentacleSync E review

    Thanks for clearing that up, never saw the Timecode Tool until now.
  16. TentacleSync E review

    Are you talking about the setup software? I was talking about the syncing software itself. I’m probably misinformed, but I thought you specifically needed that software to be able to sync.
  17. TentacleSync E review

    As someone in the LocationSound community on reddit pointed out, Tentacle hasn’t released a Windows version of Tentacle Sync Studio. Have you encountered any issues with editors who run on Windows, or has that not been a concern?
  18. Best Position of Shotgun Mic in Blimp

    I could be wrong, but my logic has been that the interference tube slots should face left and right, since most noise would be coming from the sides when the mic is angled. In that position, the top of the mic just faces the sky/ceiling and the bottom faces the mount.
  19. 2018

    Happy new year to you too, Crew.
  20. Possible Betso TCX-2+ issue?

    Sorry to confuse, I meant to use the word “interfere” in its more general definition.
  21. Possible Betso TCX-2+ issue?

    I’m not the author of the video, but I’d try posting a comment on the video.
  22. Is a new Sound Devices MixPre-10T coming soon?

    @Curtis Judd just posted his review after spending two months with the 10T:
  23. Sounds Good! Sound for Film and Video (humor)

    So when jamming timecode on an Alexa and it’s still a second off, that’s actually because the camera is too far south from my recorder?
  24. Net Neutrality

    Congress and lawsuits still have power to reverse the decision, not to mention lobbyists from the internet giants. You can still call your representatives and donate to Free Press’s FCC lawsuit fund.
  25. Yes, that lav, the one that comes with the Sennheiser ew100 G3. My kit doesn’t have any lavs yet, and the production I’m mixing for is unwilling to rent better lavs. While I get to boom with an MKH 8060, we only have one ew100 G3 system and the ME 2 that comes with it. I’ve had no luck wiring with the bulky ME 2 capsule in the past, since it often visibly protrudes through clothing, and the weight makes it more likely to slip out of tape. I’m thinking of using a substantial moleskin sandwich this time around, but beyond that, it’s all guesswork for me. Does anyone have suggestions for hiding it? Thanks!
