  • About
    I am a production/post sound mixer. My work covers a wide range including television, movies, and commercials.
  1. If you're on set, can you plug it into a camera and see if you see the same behavior? I am both suggesting eliminating a common denominator in your signal chain, and relating to experiences I have had. I don't know for sure what your issue is, but I can relate to the trouble that loud low frequency sounds can cause.

  3. It does sound like momentary overloading caused by LF rumble. The bit of static hiss you are hearing may possibly be the higher noise floor of the 2nd ADC in the Nomad. It's rare that I can ever hear that in the Nomad, but it used to be i big problem for me in the TRX742. Howy adjusted the timing a while back which made it much better. What happens if you replace the Nomad with another non neverclip mixer?
  4. The free app I made is more rudimentary, with basically no GUI and no options, just a batch converter. This app has mixing options, and a more complete interface. Also my app is Mac only.
  5. Looks great. This will be a very useful tool.
  6. Transcend for me too. 1 in the daily kit, one in the office. In addition i'm using their CF cards, an SSD drive and their rugged portable drives.
  7. I think ta3's are a good idea. Smaller size, and a lot less weight. I don't mind the ta5's on my nomad either. With a couple adaptor cables I only have to carry the weight of xlrs when I'm using them.
  8. It seems a little odd to have a 16 track recorder with only 10 total analog and digital inputs. With 2 tracks for mix, what is the purpose of the extra 4 tracks? I would love to see this configuration with 8 aes instead of 4.
  9. That looks really interesting! I love that Aaton always sticks with linear faders.
  10. While I can't put a percentage on it, I'd say "most" of the time I am able to find a way to make the lavs work, otherwise I won't use them. Within that, there is a very wide range of quality and tone that is dependent upon many factors like the actor, the wardrobe, the environment, etc. I think Jan really answered it best. There will always be something new to challenge you, so every time a wire is put on is a learning experience for me.
  11. Here is a much easier to read concise write up from Lectrosonics. http://www.lectrosonics.com/US/Wireless-Resources/fcc-spectrum-updates.html
  12. Congrats to everyone.
  13. The antenna bar is a manfrotto, the magnet mount antenna in the middle is an l-com 2.4ghz antenna for zaxnet.
  14. While I do agree that automixers can be a very helpful thing to get through a less than ideal situation, I don't think the speakers need to be that unpredictable for an automixer to help. Any time you have a larger number of speakers, or very long sessions of speaking and automixer can be very helpful to make sure a word or two isn't missed accidentally, while also reducing feedback, reverb, and noise floor. Panel discussions, or script table reads are a good example of a fairly controlled situations where automixers can really help.
  15. I do have the xlr adaptors, I haven't directly A/B'd them, but I haven't heard a noticeable difference, so I go with the convenience of a trx900 and am happy. I would encourage you to use these mics in the field a bit more before passing judgement. They are a great tool in the tool kit, and not every tool is the best choice for every situation. As a car mic, plant mic, podium mic, etc they are fantastic.
