    Sound Mixer. Features, Docs, Commercials, Corporate, Reality, whatever.
  1. RIP
  2. I use the SGS quick connects on all my boom poles. Highly recommended.
  3. @Derek H They may be a number of different connectors such as Rean for example. Whatever they cane with. I acquired a lot of my cos-11s second hand many years ago so who knows which brand the connectors are. No labels. Either way, these ones look pretty cool!
  4. I'm going to echo what @Constantin said. Although you think you have a handle on things, the truth is that until this is what you've been doing on a full time basis to make your living, you find you really don't know what you thought you did at uni or even on a basic indie level. The best training you can get is to work for someone else, and from there you can not only grow, but also develope connections to better jobs, and you can save money in the meantime and get the right gear, not just what you can afford while at uni. So ask around and try to utility or second boom for an established mixer. This is the correct way of doing things. If you go out on your own, you're doing it the hard way and you're going to do yourself and your business a disservice without even knowing it.
  5. I want all my lavs re terminated with these. I hate the plastic boots that always break with the slightest amount of pressure. But getting 30ish mics done would cost a lot I am assuming. I'd love yo hear more!
  6. I use my cl-9 with my 788 because of the flexible routing and dedicated functions. It is a nice and compact control surface. However when I can get away with it, I like to use my analog mixer because the sound is really something impressive. Yes it is big and heavy and draws a lot of power, and all those cables are a pain. But it's worth it for the right projects
  7. My solution is not much better than your original setup, but it works for me. I use the pouch that my 788 came in from SD, put three on either side of the divider, and keep the antennae in a mic pouch that an SM58 came in, along with the tx so that they are always together. Works well for me.
  8. Shooting with this today. It's been a while. I'm just disappointed that they didn't ask me to bring in a Nagra!
  9. I used to work in a studio where we specialized in restoration and remixing sound for TV and film. For pops and clicks, we would manually fix every one of them in Pro-Tools, so you'd never know that they were there. For situations where noise reduction was necessary, we used some really specialized plug-ins that, to be honest, I cannot name because they were not household names like iZotope RX or Waves. But I can say is that they were very expensive, probably no longer available, and worked extremely well. When iZotope RX was released I thought it was a joke, because the plug-ins that I had used years before were far superior in their operation. Wish I could remember what they were though! So back to your original question: I can go both ways. When watching an old film, I kind of take it for granted that it probably won't sound or look as good as the original tapes/film due to the edit/transfer processes of the day. So it doesn't really bother me at all. I guess I'm just used to it. A version that is cleaned up well? Sure, I'll check it out. If it sacrifices the quality in some other way then maybe I'll pass. Guess it depends upon how distracting it is.
  10. Have you tried connecting your XLR to anything?
  11. Are you connecting it to anything with phantom power engaged? we are usually more helpful if you say exactly what you are doing
  12. Use in full range. If you run out of juice it'll either switch to another connected power source or it'll power down. That's all.
  13. I want to know too
