    I am a production/post sound mixer. My work covers a wide range including television, movies, and commercials.
  1. DPA 4098 - first impressions

    The interference tube on the 4099 series is twice the length of the tube on the 4080. This helps extend the frequency response lower. They do all use the same capsule, but how that capsule is used changes the response significantly.
  2. DPA 4098 - first impressions

    I spoke to DPA reps recently at the Sound Summit in Seattle. They told me in order to extend the low frequency response of a 4080, it would have to be much longer than it is, taking away some of the advantage of a 4080.
  3. ZMT3 & PowerRoll

    Thanks for the clarification Glenn. For us end users, the documentation is all we have to go on when making our purchasing decisions, so the accuracy of those documents is important in avoiding surprises or disappointments.
  4. ZMT3 & PowerRoll

    Interesting. I've heard back from Zaxcom and they told me it is not capable, and are now going to remove the feature from the website and the manual. Have you tested if power roll is working on your transmitters, and not just an in active menu item?
  5. Red Weapon 8K Audio Issue

    I have had very mixed results sending audio to this camera. Same body, different days, different results.
  6. ZMT3 & PowerRoll

    I just received 2 ZMT3.5 transmitters, and I was very surprised to find that they are not capable of PowerRoll. I figured with the short battery life this would be a critical feature. Was this included in other versions of firmware? Does anyone have PowerRoll on the ZMT3's? Or is this just incorrect info on their website? My transmitters came with V2-25 software.
  7. DPA 4098 - first impressions

    Rado, thanks for the feedback. I'm glad to hear that they hold up better than u expected. I was always worried about the rubber suspension, but it sounds like a non issue. I will be reaching out to dpa again to request a flat response version
  8. Zaxcom Nomad notch filter

    They would be easy to see on a spectrogram. I agree they shouldn't be a concern for post though, as they are very shallow and do not significantly alter the overall sound.
  9. DPA 4098 - first impressions

    I demo'd the 4080 and also found the low end roll off too extreme for my taste and intended purpose. I would welcome a flat response version of this mic.
  10. Zaxcom Nomad notch filter

    Nope. The compressors show the amount of reduction, but HPF and notch filters can only be checked in the channel setup pages.
  11. Zaxcom Nomad notch filter

    Channel setup menu has an on/off toggle and a frequency setting for each analog input.
  12. Wireless - Is the sky falling?

    I saw the same article, and it seemed a little alarmist to me, but with merit. If T-Mobile is actually on track to deploy and activate there 600mhz purchases this year, it could come as a surprise to some markets, but these rollouts don't happen everywhere all at once. Admittedly I am not ready for my 7 channels of 600mhz to go offline tomorrow, so I just have to hope that I have enough time to go through with my transition plan before it's a problem.
  13. OR311 - For Zaxcom TRXLA transmitters

    Thanks for the kind words about the clips. Unfortunately it is true I am not currently making them and I don't have any left. It's not just because I'm too busy with work, buying a house, and getting engaged, but the vendor I was working with has closed up shop and with those other things I haven't found time to find a new vendor to work with. As I get settled into the new house and the new studio I hope to find time to update the design a bit and find a new vendor to work with. Unfortunately I can't say exactly when this will happen. I think the Orca pouch will make a good alternative, and won't scratch the sides of your trx like my clips do
  14. Cart building day!!!

    Hint, hint..... Enjoy your day off.
  15. RED Helium

    So far I've had mixed results trying to feed reference audio to the helium. Sometimes I can't get any signal and just lots of noise, sometimes I can get signal covered with noise, and I have gotten it to work just fine. Also seems like there are a few bugs in the firmware, like recently I found the headphone out to be muted until I change the volume, so I have to turn the volume up and back down to the level I wanted to get the return feed to work. What are folks using to feed audio to a helium? With what kind of results?
