  1. 664 question

  2. TA3f to TA5f (Lectrosonics)

    I think you might be over thinking this a bit.. For the time spent on this post, you could have built the cable already. Look at all of the accessory cables provided by Lectrosonics...these are tried and trusted configurations to get audio at line or mic level into their equipment.. Build yourself a set of line level cables.. And a set of mic level cables and then build some spares.. They definitely come in handy. Sent from my SM-G935P using Tapatalk

    Same here.. TRX900CL and ERX. I do have some old RX900s for news/ENG stuff but I haven't broken them out for quite some time. ERX has been working great.
  4. What is this blue bracket?

    That's my 633 rig. LOVE this setup! It's a bit snug in that OR30 bag but the alternative is just too big! The Soundbag Dashboards are awesome! Been using them for a while now.. Great product!

    I have 2 Loon poles. I love them and probably wouldn't use another pole. I had called him a few times for some replacement parts. When I finally got him on the phone we talked for almost 2 hours... The amount of knowledge was unbelievable and he was just a really nice guy. He told me a little bit of his back story in regards to moving to CA and back to Montana and how he was a basically a one man show at the moment. I had always hoped he could restore his reputation with people who had a bad perception of him. His contributions to our industry will be sorely missed. RIP Don.
  6. DIY external bag cart battery

    When I get a few minutes I'll draw a diagram. It's fairly simple. Everything is either soldered, spade connectors or Anderson Power Pole...The only part that is kind of convoluted is the wiring for the V/A Meter. The box with the bigger battery has a P-Tap jack on it. It came from Wooden Camera for some modular system they have. I rebuilt it with more solid wires.
  7. DIY external bag cart battery

    Its really not that bad. The bigger one i built for my friend, he uses on a vtr cart... That one is heavier. They do make smaller capacity batteries but not sure if it's worth it to save a lb or 2. Sent from my SM-G935P using Tapatalk
  8. DIY external bag cart battery

    So I built this a few months back for a friend. This has a Bioenno 60ah LiPo battery. The plug selection was what my buddy wanted but it works great. This weighs about 16lbs. I built a similar one for myself with their 40ah LiPo..It weighs about 12lbs. I can run my loaded 633 bag(3SRC, ZAX CL, RF distro) for like 3 days! Plus charge my phone etc.. I don't have any pictures of it, but I also built a 40ah LiPo rackmount with a switching power supply so that I can use mains power or battery. It lives in an SKB box and powers my cart. Thanks for JW for pointing me in the direction of Bioenno Batteries!! They have great products and excellent customer service! www.bioennopower.com www.powerwerx.com

  10. Using the CL-12 with 664

    I use CL-12 with 664. A long time ago before Remote Audio came out with a BDS with USB, I purchased one of the USB to BDS adapters. I swapped the BDS connector with a 4pin XLR and plug it into my HotBox....Works like a charm! You could put a Hirose or whatever connector on it your want. Also, both my cart power supply and my pelican battery case (both of which I built) I have incorporated USB ports for charging devices and running CL12. https://www.bhphotovideo.com/bnh/controller/home?A=details&O=&Q=&ap=y&c3api=1876%2C{creative}%2C{keyword}&gclid=CNelvK_evdQCFU9sfgodfvgMMQ&is=REG&m=Y&sku=793086
  11. Control surface vs mixer

    I use the 664/CL12 combo. Prior to that I had a Cooper and for a short time I used a Soundcraft board. I much prefer the combo of CL12 to the front end of another mixer... Mainly because the 664/688 is already a mixer. Dont get me wrong, a Sonosax or a Cooper is obviously superior but maybe not the best combination with the 6 series. Gain staging, extra patching from RX to mixer to 664. So many fail points. I am obviously missing out on key features of the CL12 by still using the 664 but it's been a great combination for me. CL12 is still a fairly new product for SD. I use it with my 633 as well. And I'm looking forward to using it with new 6 series products down the road.
  12. Hot pins?

    I have seen this before and have actually done it myself without melting the plastic. I don't remember exactly what it said, but in reading the Neutrik pdf on their connectors, the plastic is rated for some insane amount of heat. Sent from my SM-G935P using Tapatalk
  13. PS-1A to Lectrosonics LT

    I stand corrected.. You want the MC41 pin out. This will do what you want perfectly!
  14. PS-1A to Lectrosonics LT

    Use the mic level wiring.. I believe its the mc35 cable. I use that configuration. Look on lectro website under audio cables. Find xlr to ta5
  15. Sound Devices 633 Mixer/Recorder Timecode Drift

    I decided a long time ago that I wanted to go the zaxcom route to do TC and Scratch. I also have the UHF RX so I have options for doing ENG work or even production work where they want main audio on the camera as well. I wanted to keep my bag rig simple so the ability to use 1 TX for two separate system capabilities has been great. Plus the ERX is super versatile especially when working with DSLR or even with big cameras. Downside is range...in the bag is not the greatest. I have a directional antenna for the TX when I work on the cart, and it works great. When I work on my cart, I pull the TX out of my bag and go from there.. I am considering an IFB200 but I can't justify right now, and it's easy to switch back and forth. Regular sync boxes are on my list as well. There is always a need especially in situations where 2.4ghz is not allowed.
