    Moving to LA

    I agree with what everyone else says. It's very competitive out here. There may a lot going on out here, but since there is so much competition, it makes it harder to keep the work steady.

    Rycote Softie indoors: overkill?

    Maybe he was doing work outside prior, and that was the only setup he had. I don't plan on using a Softie indoors. But if I'm doing ENG stuff inside and out, and don't have the time, I keep it on.

    Reverb or echo reduction in post

    I hear Unveil is supposed to be another great deverb plugin.

    Painting a lav mic

    Have any of you painted a lav mic? I want to paint mine a different color, but I'm not sure which type of paint to use.

    Worldwide Lithium Ion Battery Air Travel Regulations

    I travel several times a year with my gear. I pack everything into Pelican case, including my 4 NP-1 batteries and AA lithium batteries. Sometimes TSA will open the case, but they have never told me to remove the batteries.

    Lectrosonics L-series

    I would love to see a dual channel transmitter...

    Mumblecore + Red Epic....

    I've been there before Jon. If it's possible, maybe just use wireless for those scenes. Sometimes, it helps cut out the noise. But I would have a talk with the director about it regardless.

    Sound Design and FX recording

    I've been sound designing for many years now, as a hobby. I mostly use synths and also record ambient FX too. Does anyone know how this side of the industry works? If a television or film project needs some unique sound, whether it's ambient FX or synthesized, do they use outside contractors? Or do they just use their in house post team to do that?

    IRS

    As long as you have it all documented, you should be okay.

    Working in Extreme cold

    Make sure you wear gloves before you grab that boom pole!

    Mic Cable wrapped around xmitter

    How you guys wrap the cable around a small transmitter, like an SM or Zaxcom? I find that with the smaller transmitters, they tend to flop off the belt a lot of times since the clip is so small.

    Lectro 200 series companding issue

    Thanks Larry. I never knew that a supersonic security system could do that. That might explain why it happened only on the analog system. I'll check to see if they have that type of security system. Do you think a high powered Wi-Fi system could also have an effect?

    Lectro 200 series companding issue

    It was weird Larry. I was in this building for half a day, and I had the same issue on block 21 and 25. It drove me nuts. But this last time, it seems that the 411 set was immune to it, compared to the 211 set.
