  1. 220.00 Seems like a fair price what do you guys think?
  2. 35mm pick up shots

    Just read through the PD-4 Manual and you will do fine. If your renting the PD-4 Why not just rent a Sound Devices 702T instead? Using a hard disk recorderis always better than using a DAT. If your using the PD-4 an external mixer isn't needed you can just use the 3 channels on the PD-4 pan the 2 wireless Right and keep the boom seperate on the L channel. The PD-4 is a very easy to use machine though it has been 3 years since I have used it Good Luck you will done fine.
  3. Sound recording for Doco series

    a 744t isn't vitial for this type of production. I would take the $4000,00 you will save from not buying it and buy either 2 used 211 Lectros gothamsound has a number of used ones for sale 1200 a piece so buy two of those and 2 sanken cos-11 Lav's and then buy a tascam Hd-P2 2 channel recorder and you will have 2 channel backup. I think that is a much better way to spend your budget

  5. Backup recorders

    Over the last two years I have used the Fostex PD-6 in many situations ENG in the bag to film set ups. I figure I have used it over 300 hours in the field. I only had that unit fail on me once. When recording 6 tracks with it in the ENG bag outdoors in July here in GA. It overheated and just shut down after removing it from the bag and using a fan on it for a few min it was fine. I learned after that day not to leave it in the case and make sure it was always in the shade when not being used and haven't had a problem since. I always carry a Tascam-P2 recorder with me just in case though. I think my cleints are just more comfortable when I tell them "Yes I have a back up recorder with me incase anything happens" and because of the local film school where I live I have rented the Tascam out quite often and it has acutally been a good source of alittle extra money so I am considering buying a second one to rent as well.
  6. Backup recorders

    I have had a Tascam Hd-P2 for about 6 months and so far has served me very well. It is easy to use. light weight and a great recorder for the money.
  7. Who Are You?

    I have posted on here a few times and Im a regular on RAMPS. So I thought it would be good to introduce myself. My name is Whitney Ince also sometimes refered to as the "Sound Guy with a girls name". I have had a few jobs where they thought a female sound person was coming but those are for another time. I am 23 yrs old and I am based in Savannah Ga but work as a local out of South FL often. I have been doing primarly location sound for the last 4 years but have been involved in live sound since highschool. I spend most of my time doing non union reality tv and corporate video stuff since that is where the money is. However I have done 2 indie features and about 30-40 short films. I graduated in 05' from SCAD (The Savannah College of Art and Design) with a BFA in Sound design and Film/Tv. There was a time I wanted to be a camera operator but I am glad I ended up doing sound. I am currently working part time on a MFA in sound design as well and co own a webhosting and development company www.southwebhosting.com . It is nice to have a stable 2nd stream on income when the sound work is slow. I work often with Travis Groves who many of you met a NAB and the both of us are hoping to get some larger budget non union film work soon. I want to Thank all of you for your help and Jeff as well.

  8. Feature Film Production Sound gear

    I also work in the lower budget area of things and have to agree with everything tim says, I have a tascam Hd-P2 and in extremely happy with it for the price and I have a 302 mixer which is the best as well. As far as Microphone choice though I hate the At 4073a I would go for the 416 or a Sanken cs-3 if you can affort it also for wind protection a new K-tek zepplin for under 400.00 is great as well. I won't spend any money on a talk back system or Comteks until you have the most important items already in your kit Good Luck
  9. Mid Price Range Mixer???

    Wow the new design is very differnt. I think the 2nd video screen is good however I am disappointed in the loss of the actual faders. I don't really like the touch screen faders much. I find much better control wih actual ones. I am sure it is going to increase the price by alot as well. What do you guys think?
  10. K-ZEP

    redge, I understand your frustrations. I am in GA and there are no dealers anywhere close to me. However I usually deal with Trew Audio and they have never let me down yet. John in the sales department has always provided me with fair answers regarding new gear I was buying without ever actually trying it out first. They also have let me return a few things very easyily that didn't meet my needs. They are very understanding so it is possible to buy gear without seeing it successfully.
  11. Oktava MK-012 any thoughts or comments on it

    I got my Mk-012 from the sound room today overall I am happy with the microphone however I am alittle unhappy with the following: 1. I paid an extra 10.00 for the "Custom Maple Storage Box" I was thinking it was going to be like the Scheops box instead it is a $1.99 little Art project style wooden box you can get at any arts and crafts store. The foam on the inside is the cheapest foam I have seen and it is just Hot Glued in the box which was done poorly there is excess hot glue all over the lip of the box. 2. The cut outs for the different heads have no foam at the bottom of the box offering no protection if the box where to be dropped 3. I tested the Outdoor 49.99 windscreen I bought (My order was shipped before some of you posted about it not working well) YOu where all correct there was hardly wind outside and it didn't stop it. Overall it sounds good thought so maybe I am being alittle crticial. I may call sound room tomorrow or not I am not sure.

  13. Pay rates

    My favorite so far is, " A producer called and asked me my day rate and I told him he then calls back and says" This will be an easy job it should only take 50 percent of your effort to do it so if you only give it 50 percent can we only pay you half your day rate?". My response was no I only do sound one way with a 100 percent of my effort. About a week later he calls me back again and says, " After asking around A number of people told me you at 50 percent effort is better than some peoples 100 percent effort so will you do it for half your rate?" 2nd favorite, After telling them my equipment rental fee of 175.00 a day for 2 wireless, mixer, boompole and boom mic they asked me, " Do you have any lower quality equipment you could use and only charge us 75.00 a day for a rental fee?" My reply " Sure I have a built in microphone on my Webcam maybe I can save you on renting a camera as well and just use it for both" Needless to say I didn't get the job.
