  1. DD cart

    I love double D's! Is it wide enough to mount rackmount products ie: monitors, Lectro Venue, etc?
  2. Buying a used Schoeps Colette?

    Perhaps I scanned your post too quickly but why does your title say "Buying a used Schoeps Colette"?
  3. Timecard Buddy (iOS) - Giveway

    No Android love?
  4. Sound Devices acquires Audio, wow!

    I disagree. Speculation peaks interest. Product drives the market.
  5. Sound Devices acquires Audio, wow!

  6. Elon's Falcon Heavy Tesla launch

  7. Every series and feature all my gear goes on it. I'm not getting 3% a day for it, - not even close, that's for sure. Usually $400 - $500/day.
  8. Hmm... maybe I've been undercharging. My package is about $100,000 worth of stuff. What's 3% of that a day?
  9. Comtek “compand” switch missing

    I have the TV5-6 units and that switch is where I choose TV5 or TV6.
  10. Sound is no longer respected on set?

    Who said that Sound had the respect of the crew, generally speaking", in the good old days? I've been doing this for 30+ years and sound has always been the red-headed stepchild on the set. When I was young and asked this same question, the answer was always the same. I'm guessing that covers a 60 to 70-year span from then to now. Probably the only time that sound commanded respect on the set was when sound was new and there was no way to work around it and even then the camera people were bristling at the idea that some other department could come in and tell them what to do. I imagine that once looping was figured out that that became a way for the DP to tell the producer that we don't have to wait for those sound guys anymore. And, with that, power was restored back to the camera dept. Respect is always earned and rarely given for free. It is never earned by yelling but given when others see your example. If you help others without their asking, are courteous, choose your battles, treat your crew and the rest of the crew with respect, you will earn respect. In short, don't be a dick and help with the hard stuff. Most sets that I've worked on, our dept had the respect of the crew because of what I've mentioned above. The few times that our dept didn't have it was because of one of two things: Someone on our crew was a cantankerous asshole, usually a mixer that should have retired years ago, or some other bigoted dept head that should have retired years ago poisoned the pot. I listen to my crew and treat them fairly as we make up the plan for each shot. My crew members always eat before me. I do this because they work hard and I'm appreciative of them. They don't even know that I do that, but I do it because I'm grateful for them. My 2 cents worth. YMMV Mirror
  11. With the holidays close upon us, I would like to share a personal experience about drinking and driving.Well, two days ago, this happened to me: I was out for an evening with friends and had more than several whiskeys followed by a few glasses of rather nice red wine. Although relaxed, I still had the common sense to know I was way over the limit.That's when I did something I've never done before -- I took a taxi home!! Sure enough, on the way, there was a police roadblock, but since it was a taxi they waved it past and I arrived home safely without incident. This was a real surprise to me because I had never driven a taxi before. I don't know where I got it, and now that it's in my garage I don't know what to do with it.So, anyway, if you want to borrow it give me a call.
  12. You make the assumption that the mixer would have sat on that bitcoin until this day. I'm sure he tried to find a way to convert it to legal tender as soon as he received it. Just like I spend the money I make today to pay my bills.
  13. Dear Licensee: Greetings from T Mobile....

    How do they know who to send the letters to? Your FCC license? Remind me not to register my guns.
  14. Comtek Questions - 72 vs 216 - Old vs New

    The non-option 7 transmitters are used in bags all the time. No problem with mine.
  15. Effect of new tax bill on freelance soundies?

  16. Lectro Duet

    Good to know. Must be end-of-year-gear-buying-for-tax-write-off season. Congrats. Just did some myself.
  17. ISO's vs. Mix Track

    Maybe it's a reality show thing but I choose what to do before hand and mix based on experience, whether it's all booms, all radios or a combination of both. If the editors don't like my choices or find a line plays better on a lav, they can go to the ISO of that line. Easy to find since all tracks are labeled in the metadata. Been doing it almost 3 decades. No one's complained yet.
  18. ISO's vs. Mix Track

    In this age of muliti-tracking and iso's, why in the world would you ever do split mixing??? Syncing has never been easier. Sounds like a through back to the 2 track DAT/Nagra days.
  19. #metoo and sexism in general

    How is a director being an ass toward others sexism? Isn't that just being an ass??
  20. Sewing Lavs into Wardrobe

    Yes, a lot of experience. Particularly sewing in Sankens into wife beaters. Sewing is not hard.
  21. Is a new Sound Devices MixPre-10T coming soon?

    I'm sure the retailers will gladly accept more of your money if you want to over pay for their products. You know, so you can feel better about yourself.
  22. What's with these dates?? Mis-print or am I reading it wrong? "Lectrosonics Products Trade-Ins For "instant credit" towards new units purchased on or after October 1, 2017, up through August 30, 2017 only, from an Authorized US or Canadian Lectrosonics dealer"
  23. Boom op-less

    Why do you hate white males? You sound like a racist. Sad. PS. Seeing that you are from Germany, you don't get to judge South Park's deeply political, thoughtful analysis of modern American society. Double PS. Seeing as I'm gender and racial fluid, your racial slurs are offensive to me. Pretty bummed to see this on this forum of all places, and this made me feel unwelcome
