  • About
    Production sound for fiction, docs and commercials. I used to do tv episodical work for a few years but now I mainly do commercial/corporate stuff as it's more family friendly. Here and there I do some audio post, too.
  1. Not one of the SD users here, but have been quite happy with the rather small and simple Nomad/Mix8 combo for fast paced drama productions with several lavs in addition to one or two booms. For commercials, I guess a throw fader board makes a good impression but not sure if I would really need it. Sometimes I have wished for more EQ options, but post tends to dislike EQed tracks and the mix is often almost only for editorial anyway.
  2. OK I'm gonna buy a license if he implements that. Could have used it couple of times already. Just wrote to him.
  3. Is this a series or a movie?
  4. Mallorca, Spain. Could get used to this kind of office view...
  5. Thanks for sharing! I have a vdb that spent too much time near a lamp so one section melted a bit, which makes it hard to extend. Might try a bit of your filing approach.
  6. I agree that 7 ms doesn't matter in relation to picture sync, but I have dialed in a few ms of delay on some inputs to compensate for differences in distance when mixing boom and lavs. For some wide shots it did help me achieve an appropriately sounding mix.
  7. Nice list, Mike, and wow you must have that picture framed above your bed
  8. Jeff, dou you know if there is a particular reason for this? Did movies change locations more often than before that time? Or did "new" filmmaking approaches (Coppola, Scorsese etc.) of around that time facilitate that kind of change?
  9. First shoot (not my own gear): Nagra III & Sennheiser MKH 416. First own kit: Edirol R-44, SIE MP-232, 416, Oktava MK012.
  10. Just went through the MixPre-6 manual. USB keyboard and Bluetooth Wingman app supported. Wow! One question I didn't find an answer to in the manual: If ext LTC is connected (say via a Tentacle or NanoLockit) to the Aux In, does that mean I can only record 4 channels aside from the mix LR? In other words, is 6 channel ISO recording only possible without Timecode?
  11. I personally have never had an issue with combo inputs and haven't heard of anyone ever having one. So I honestly don't get why people complain.
  12. The 302 will stay around for a while, just as ENG teams still use their SQN3s for simple stuff. As long as there will be cameras that record sound more or less professionally. I'm not sure how intuitive the new MixPres are, but it's almost impossible that they will be as self-explanatory and straight on as a purely analog mixer like the 302. The two don't really compare at all.
  13. Looks like in order to get to the card you have to take out the batteries?
  14. This should make quite a bunch of folks who are about to buy an F8 for smaller jobs stop and think again.
  15. Happy birthday Jeff!
