  1. Alexa Mini TC sync

    I just connect the box, switch to jam-sync, then switch back to pre-set and disconnect the box. Doesn't need to be switched to re-gen in my experience.
  2. How is the 600MHz spectrum sell off affecting you?

    I have some gear in the 600 range that is not re-blockable. Luckily for me, I have re-couped the cost of what I payed for these units, and will use them as long as possible. Then I'll likely sell them for peanuts to someone overseas on ebay, or in WTB-WTS. But, who knows if all other countries will follow suite and auction off these frequencies to their phone companies as well.... - Lectrosonics has some kind of a "buy back" program, where they give you a rebate on new gear, in exchange for sending in old gear in the 600 MHz range.
  3. macOS High Sierra: AFS File Format

    Matt, I upgraded my main Mac, and have not actually noticed any difference. I still back up files from my 633 and 664 SD/CF cards to the same external HD that I have been using for that purpose for 2-3 years (and no, I have not reformatted that drive since upgrading the OS).
  4. Alexa Mini TC sync

    Hey Mike, not sure if this is relevant to your particular issue, but I noticed that something has changed (in the firmware?) a couple months ago. Whereas before, I just stabbed the camera, it took the jam - now, there’s a menu item “jam sync”, so camera does not take the jam unless it’s switched back and forth between preset and jam sync (then back again, or it will just say external tc is missing or similar).

  6. COS-11D SMQV transmitters gain issues

    Something is not right. I would send it back and get them re-wired or replaced by the store. I usually keep my SMQVs with COS11D wired universal Lectro at level 16. That gives me enough gain for pretty much anything. If someone is soft spoken, I may up it to 18-20. For reference, running the same SMQVs with DPA4061, I usually have the level anywhere between 30 to 36 for similar output.
  7. Good morning jpb2. Not sure if I’m reading it right, but the rates posted on your website are way off. $800/12h for a two person Sound team - including the gear with 6 wires, 3 IFBs and two lockit boxes?
  8. Seahawks All Access is back!

    Any info on rates offered?
  9. Traveling With Cart Overseas

    Could be the Zuca carts? They have an "off road" version, as well as a backpack version - both with bigger wheels that I believe can be taken off for transport. There's a Facebook group of people building these into small sound carts. FWIW Re: Dewalt; I used two of the drawer units for almost two years, then one of them broke. Not that "tough", so I don't believe they would hold up as checked luggage. I only used them around the L.A. Area transported in my car, and it still broke....

  11. Alexa Mini TC sync

    Not. Just jam in the morning and after lunch.
  12. Alexa Mini TC sync

    4 weeks in to a show shooting on two Minis and occasionally an Amira as camera C - jam in the morning and after lunch. We are also slating with a TS3. So far no complaints. Cameras are consistently 2 frames off, but that's a known "issue".
  13. Audio on Alien: Covenent - behind the scenes

    Thanks for sharing this Kelly!
  14. 96khz to 48 khz

    I recommend checking out this info from a widely trusted company that arguably makes some of the best converters on the market: https://benchmarkmedia.com/blogs/application_notes/digital-audio-demonstration-video
  15. new microphone

    - Automatic separation of recorded sound sources - Automatic removal of background noises . So yeah, pay attention producers of 19 cast member reality - no need to wire anyone, just plant this anywhere in the room and each capsule will automagically detect different sources and record high quality isos without background noise. Fantastic.
  16. Sound Devices Mix Pre-3 and Mix Pre-6

    I apologize if my sense of humor does not please you. I would say that these are not at all the same as a 302. FWIW, I tried to sell my 302 for 6 months last year, no takers, so I decided to keep it. It will come in handy when you least expect it. And for me personally, it already has, despite the fact that I also have both the 633 and 664.
  17. Sound Devices Mix Pre-3 and Mix Pre-6

    Yes. As soon as any new product comes out - all other products stop functioning, and become obsolete paper weights.
  18. Quick question about tentacle sync

    Brent, you will be fine. My earlier comment about accurately checking TC was aimed at those who started going on about human ability to see whether it was one frame out, or whatever by looking at the flash. FWIW - the Tentacles have been solid for me since I got them (I got two from their original IndieGo startup project). I would say that if you jam it from your recorder (or whatever solid master clock you use), see that the green flash keeps going, you will be in sync within half a frame over 12 hours. At least that is my experience. I do not even re-jam at lunch anymore. A few times I have left the tentacles on after a full day, until I get home, and checked them with the 6-series - still in sync every time I have done this test.
  19. Lectrosonics UCR100 Cable to Mixer

    I would suggest not to hope, but rather make sure. Talk to one of the usual suspects and they will get you sorted.
  20. Lectrosonics UCR100 Cable to Mixer

    Yes, works - as long as it's wired correctly.
  21. Quick question about tentacle sync

    If you are using a 6-series SD mixer/recorder, simply plug the tentacle into it, scroll to TC Jam Menu. There you can see incoming timecode accurately compared to the internal one.
  22. Quick question about tentacle sync

    Yes, they blink on every second. However, it should be green, not red when it's been jammed.
  23. Waves Broadcast and Production

    I received an email from Izotope today announcing that RX 6 is due to be released on 4/20. ==== RX 6 is coming April 20th! Built on years of extensive research in advanced digital signal processing and machine learning, RX 6 features cutting-edge technologies for post production like lav mic de-rustle, dialogue isolation, and low-end wind rumble removal. It also introduces creative approaches to age-old music recording problems like microphone bleed, sibilance, mouth clicks, and breaths. With version 6, RX advances to the next level of audio repair that once seemed impossible. Get a sneak preview of RX 6 and sign up for a Westlake Pro webinar that will be live streamed on April 20th. ====
  24. wingman?

    Thanks Brent. The only difference from my setup would be the qrx200. I have used it with both 633 and 664. Lectros and Comtek. No 2-stroke putting. Makes me wonder if perhaps you got a faulty Wingman...?
  25. wingman?

    I have not seen any of these problems on my setup, but would be interested to know what else you guys have in the bag, cart (or nearby) in terms of wifi, wireless, hops, IFB, power, monitors etc. when these things happened.... just in case I would encounter any future issues.
