  1. DPA 4098 - first impressions

    You are correct Larry increasing the gain does not help with the signal to noise. I used to use Neumann 150's with the active goose neck which were great for years but now seem to be impossible to hide. I love my DPA 4060's, 4061's and the slims as Lavs but saddly I'm not impressed with the 4098 as a car plant. I will follow up with the distributor and see what they can do resister wise. Bill
  2. Podcast Microphones

    Hi Sean: You might find some useful info here http://www.dpamicrophones.com/microphones/dvice You could use the microdot to XLR adapter (DAD6001-BC) and use any mic that suits your need. Just a thought. Bill
  3. DPA 4098 - first impressions

    Thank you Constantin for the forensic work on finding the thread on the Lectro site. And thank you Larry for always chimming in on the neccessary info. I recieved an email from the Distributor here is what they said, "As for the Adapter, if it’s a Cabled item, we have a few people that can customize the resistor value inside and adjust the Gain. The factory adapter is padded down for use with “Most” devices, but you can have a custom one made that better matches the 4098 with the Lectro Units." Who knew? My 4098's are microdot terminated like most of my DPA's to be used with the appropriate adapter for SSM,SM,SMQV etc. If I'm using a DAD3056 adapter how would I change the resister? Are they serviceable? I think this email is referirng to the DAD6001 which is a XLR to microdot. That I can see being serviceable. I will write back to the distributor and verify. Am I the only one noticing the noise floor? I thought I was doing something wrong? Bill
  4. DPA 4098 - first impressions

    I sent a email to DPA tech support and this is what they sent back. Dear Bill Using DAD3056 and lectrosonic gives you a low voltage supply , this can sometimes increase the noise. Try using the DAD6001 with P48 supply. Maybe this will lover the noise floor.
  5. DPA 4098 - first impressions

    How many people use the DPA DAD3056 adaptor from microdot to TA 5 with the 4098 and go directly into a Lectro TRX? Or do most people use the DAD6001 microdot to XLR. It is way easier to use the 4098 directly into the TRX as a car rig. But am I correct in assuming that the Lectro would give a low voltage supply to the 4098 thus increasing the noise floor and the DAD6001 would give 48V. I'm finding the 4098 noisy when used directly into the TRX. These are the specs from DPA, Power supply (for full performance) MicroDot: Min. 5 V to max. 50 V through DPA adapter for wireless systems or 48 V phantom power ±4 V with DAD6001-BC XLR adapter XLR-3M: 48 V phantom power ±4 V Bill
  6. iPad Mini Mount For Sound Cart

    Hey Rawturnip, This is what I use and it has never let me down. You can roll over any type of terrain no problem. Look no further job done. https://www.rammount.com/part/RAM-B-121-AP14U Bill
  7. Deva 24 seminar

    Hi Jack, Do you have any more pics of the current version? Could we see the side panels please. What does it ship with? ie hard drive size, power supply, cables, Zaxnet antenna, Dante etc. Does it come with the necessary hardware to use the removeable face plate? When you say it interfaces with IOS how is that done? Is it Wi-Fi, Bluetooth or hard line? Thanks.
  8. Deva 24 seminar

    I'm not sure if it happened due to "Irma". I'm sure people were preoccupied with other things on Sunday. But I too would be interested in hearing any feed back. What did people think re Pro's and Con's. Bill
  9. DPA 4098 - first impressions

    Rado, While you have the attention of DPA how about getting them to make some "clear" button hole tubes for the 4060 slim and also a vampire clip for it. Not just the concealer but a vampire type clip like the one for the regular 4060. Bill
  10. Alexa Mini TC sync

    Hi Jason, I had it custom made from my local supplier. It wasn't very expensive about $50 US. a lot less than Lemo wants for theirs https://www.lemo.com/en/other-special/right-angle-connector-anglissimo Bill
  11. Alexa Mini TC sync

    I've been using the Denecke SB4 with a right angle Lemo in the 12 o'clock position and camera is leaving it on. This gives the ability to load cards easily without becoming a problem and a reason not to leave it on. We slid it back in this picture for clarity of the connector Usually it sits much closer to the body, which does mean it can heat up with the fan being so close but we never had a problem with it. This was recomended by Panavision because the mini uses internal software to jam TC VS the SXT which uses a Ambient hardware based program to lock and re generate the TC. The other thing I like to do is keep track of the TC on my monitors. The 2 frame off set has been explained to me as an error between the refresh rates and timing of the two Teradecks. As for the jamming, camera trainee brings the slates and clockits to the cart we jam them and camera takes them back. I then verify the jam on the monitors. I like the fact that the "TC" indicator will actually change from red to white indicating a successful jam. Bill
  12. MovieSlate and Sound Reports

    Yes currently "Movie Slate" only syncs with SD 6 series recorders. But you still need a third piece of hardware, that being the TC System :Wave or :Pulse. You then join the WIFI network generated from that. Maybe Cliff Joyce or Eric Goodwin could chime in and let us know if SD provided R&D money for which they were granted use of the APP. I think that Cantar now has their internally generated WIFI up and running and Zaxcom may be doing the same with the long anticipated 24. But unless both of the aforementioned are willing to pay a licensing fee I think we will see proprietary GUI versions of something similar. Bill
  13. T-Mobile to begin rollout of 600 MHz spectrum this summer.

    Thanks for jumping in on this topic Gordon. So If you curretly own Block 26 what are the reprucussions and what are the stipulations heading forward of using it? Is it affecting production for you? But does that mean other parties now own the rest? Thank you Bill

    Be prepared for an influx of RF's coming up for sale. http://radioactiverf.com/tech-talk/prepare-for-loss-of-600mhz-by-years-end/ Bill
  15. NEW: ARRI Alexa SXT W - Wireless

    Long gone are the days where the 1st AC would be on the whip or actually on the barrel of the lens. It seems now all they use is the Preston or the Arri remote. On my last show every time we cam in close with the camera all I could here was the servo and the lens being racked back and forth back and forth. It was like the 1st had some kind of nervous twitch with the remote. I may be getting old but God forbid you even say to them "do you have to be on the remote"? Sorry to hi jack the thread. Bill
