  1. The Opposite of Mixing?

    Close enough for Government work.
  2. MKE2-5 to XLR

    Red goes to pin 2, Blue to pin 3 and shield to pin 1. You can't power a lav with 48vp if that's what you're trying to do by using an XLR connector. Lavs normally run on 3-5 volts supplied by a wireless transmitter. 48v phantom will damage the MKE2.

    No not those numbers but the number of a posting in a thread.
  5. Updated Forum today

    Would be nice if the post numbers were included in the update.
  6. Miami best blocks

    Miami is RF central. To prove it, you throw a slice of bread up in the air and it comes down toasted. Basically there are no guarantees on clear frequencys at any given time. If you need any equipment or tech support when you're here give us a call. (Production Sound Solutions 954-289-4770)
  7. Alteros Wireless (a new branch of Audio Technica)

    Not through walls or around corners, etc. Doesn't seem very practical for field use.
  8. Senn G3 as Wireless Hop HELP!

    As has been said, "there are many ways to skin a cat" and while your way works for you, that's not how I would do it.
  9. Senn G3 as Wireless Hop HELP!

    There's something wrong if your TX is set to -50. Either your cable is not wired for line or your sending too hot a signal from your 633. Not sure what you mean by "full line level" output. You should be using the "0" tone from the 633 as your reference tone and adjust the TX input to give you about 75% on the TX meter. The RX meter should be set to about the same level. The 3.5mm TRS connector should be wired with positive to the ring and ground to the shield & the tip. The connector to the 633 should be positive to pin 2 and ground to pin 1 & 3. Now you have an unbalanced connection that will drop the 633 output into the TX by 6db as compared to balanced wiring. The way your working is like driving with one foot on the gas pedal & the other on the brake at the same time. Look up unity gain & gain staging for more information on how to do it & the advantages.
  10. Senn G3 as Wireless Hop HELP!

    I would bet that the TX input cable is NOT wired for line level into the TX. Feeding a line level signal into a mic level input is wrong in so many ways. That's why you have the TX set at -48 and the RX set at "0". It's all about gain staging. You need to either get the correct wired cable or set the 633 output to mic level out. Then you can raise the TX input level to -18 or so and adjust the RX output to about the same if you have a mic level setting on the camera. The cable you need will have the positive feed connected to the ring of the 3.5mm TRS input connector and a ground connection going to both the sleeve and the tip.
  11. The Postman Always Rings Twice (1946)

    I would venture that it was 35mm single stripe mag with the obligatory balance track.
  12. Ultrasone headphones for location work. Which ones?

    What he said +1.
  13. Hot pins?

    Is it PC to use that phrase?
  14. Hot pins?

    Traut is correct, less than 5 seconds is more than enough to melt the solder and get it to a liquid state. Tin the connector cup first then tin the wires then melt them together. The images show way too much solder being used in each of the cups which is probably why you have heat discoloration on the pins.
  15. Adapting Sennheiser G3 wired mics for use with Sony UWPs

    Keep in mind that Sony uses the ring of a TRS connector for audio & Sennheiser uses the tip.
