  1. So which is the definitive mount for the mini cmit? Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk
  2. I'm binge watching HOC with my girlfriend and really enjoying it. We're about halfway done with the current season and there were a few scenes I had technical questions about. I know the mixer frequents this forum so hopefully he sees this. I'll be vague to avoid spoilers. For the scene where the characters are in the private theater and they recite the dialogue in sync with the movie playing behind them, I was curious if this was done with earwigs or amplified in anyway for the actors. I was also curious about the "skype" calls - if they were pre-recorded and played back on set, if the on-camera actor was acting against a green screen, or if they were done live, having the callers in the next room. I was also wondering about the wide shots in the back of cars. Are there plant mics in the ceiling that are just comped out like they do with the booms? Or was it wires? Finally, the scene where Seth is prepping the podium - was that amplified live or were the effects added in post later? Thanks, Ben
  3. I use an external cellphone battery charger. I charge it off of AC when I'm plugged in. Never had an issue. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk
  4. So is this for people who have analog mixers and want to record to something like the 970 via Dante? I feel like this is intermediary technology. It only makes sense that manufacturers will more widely develop mixers with dante capabilities built in, like Yamaha. Would be cool if SD did that. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk
  5. Yeah, I guess make sure the transmitter is in IFB mode but I'm not sure what that does exactly. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk
  6. I have to admit that I've tried multiple sets and they all have a ridiculous noise floor. Kind of surprising. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk One mixer I know uses a 411 with a headphone amp. Very bulky but sounds incredible. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk
  7. The LT has performed very well for me RF-wise. It is a little too chunky for my taste in form factor which is my only really gripe about it. I did have one fall off of an actor (probably my fault) without my knowledge. When we ran the subsequent take, I had no signal from him. I went over and he had set the pack back on his belt, but the battery door I guess had come slightly open when it fell so while the batteries were still in there (loosely), they weren't powering the Tx. Everything ended up being OK but I don't believe that could have happened with the SMQv. I think when the LT first came out, there was some speculative talk about a 100mW wideband SMQv. I don't know if something like that is in development but if it was, I'd probably buy 4-6 of them. I rarely use the 250mW setting and I think Lectro said 250 mW wouldn't be possible with the widebands which is fine with me. I just desperately don't want to buy the SSM's because I don't want to invest in new lavs with different connectors (though the new threaded B6s look interesting) and of course, they run on those cell phone batteries. If this hypothetical wideband SMQv isn't announced in the next 12 months or so, I guess I'll bite the bullet and get maybe 2 SSMs just to have more wideband transmitters that aren't LT's. Of course it's nice to be able to hide them too.
  8. +100% One of my favorite things about the company is that they are always active and honest on this forum and that we always get the answers we need.
  9. I thought the SNA could only cover 100 MHz at a time (about 4 blocks), so how is it you're making it work from 19 through block 23 for a total of 5 blocks of bandwidth?
  10. Reviving this thread. Has Lectro officially fixed the issues users were having with SRc's? If so, starting with which serial numbers?
  11. I never knew the gain setting affected the range. That is really surprising to me. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk
  12. KGraham, I took a listen to your file and while the noise floor is noticeable, especially compared to the 641, it's not a deal-breaker for me. Especially with the plug-ins, denoisers, etc they have today. Plus, for moving car scenes, they'll do a good amount of sound design which I think would bury the hiss.
  13. I just ordered two and now you guys are making me nervous. I'd be interested to know if an XLR buttplug sending 12 or 48 volts helps. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk
  14. But is block 26 still completely doomed? Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk
  15. I'm not sure actually, that's why I was asking. There's been talk about it for a little while now. I did not know about the 4 different wires though. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk
