  1. Wrong group! We are sound mixers most of us, so you won't get the best answers here
  2. There are those two black hex screws on the top and bottom, and then there's another in between the pins (IIRC) , and then you push it out of the tube by gently pushing the xlr pins. So no need to solder anything.. At least that's how I did...
  3. One time, my mkh50 too had a rattle. I opened it and saw one of the switches was loose internally, it was easy to fasten again. Open it up and see what you can see is my advice!
  4. I'm sure they're great, just not a great name
  5. Looks cool. The threads on the bottom made me nervous. I can imagine the red ring getting loose over time introducing noise.. But I'd never buy anything from a company with that name. I never buy food from a restaurant with the name King or Best or anything like that either.
  6. Oh yeah Akkurat is great too. Never been there myself, but so I've heard.
  7. It you're in Stockholm, pretty much every little pub on smaller streets have some sort of craft beer thing going on. Södermalm is thick with those places. My favorite joints in no particular order: Omnipollos hatt (slussen) Brewdog Södermalm (there's also one on Kungsholmen) Nya Carnegiebryggeriet (Hammarby sjöstad) Katarina Ölkafé (SoFo, near Slussen) Babajan (a stone's throw away from Brewdog Södermalm) or any Monk's pub. I've never been, but there's also a Mikkeller bar in Stockholm somewhere, Mikkelles is a danish brand, but most of the pubs have local beer as well as the main brand. Have fun!
  8. Hey wandering, definitely speak to Börje or Jan at Visono media. They're quick and good, not cheap though. Your other option would be to get in touch with Ljud & Bildmedia, www.ljud-bildmedia.se. You do have a fixer though, right? He/she should know this. Anyhow, have fun and enjoy Stockholm if you can. I'd buy you a beer if I were around and not having small kids
  9. Sooooo... Better or worse noise wise? The only thing I miss is the respect for the takes, and the concentration shooting film requires.
  10. Those motors sound a lot too.... Oh well. I'm glad the pullers won't have to put on any more boxes than they have to. I bet Steadi-ops will be happy too
  11. Impressive, as always. But, the audio we're listening to never changed, so unless the 4017B sounded EXACTLY like the lav he wore in the video, we didn't actually hear the ZMT Phantom.. Not a big thing just saying... Or am I wrong?
  12. Been requesting this for several years too It's on Zooms and Tascams
  13. Might be jinxing it now, but I hope I'll be able to come this year! Crossing my fingers
  14. So is it a Fuji battery then? Awesome video, esp the ending.."That was slow"
  15. You're making the right decisions based on your experience coupled with what your ears like. If you trust your hearing and have the experience to tell whether a line recorded in harsh conditions will be OK or will have to be ADRed, you're automatically (probably) making the right decisions. After a few years that feeling is in your guts. And if you can make a location sound good with the equipment that you're comfortable working with, then hooray! Some people just prefer Schoeps over Röde based on THEIR experience. They're confident that they can make the right decisions based on their hearing with the right mics, lavs, txs, preamps and (hopefully) boom operators. They probably could get real good results with lesser gear, but they're have to relearn that new equipment and that takes focus and concentration, and as you know, those are two very precious assets on set that has to be deployed very carefully. Looking at numbers... I don't really see it that way in this community of mixers for film and TV, although in music and PA I can reconize it. Several people here use Zaxcom txs and txs which sound amazing and are spectacular tech and feature wise, but the sample rate of the system is actually 32khz if I'm not mistaken. That's just one example. I know of many rerecording mixers and sound designers who use Zoom or other small handy recorders for quick FX recordings... And yes, a sound person on set not reading in the general feeling on set (as you say a crying scene for example and they bluntly go "go again there was a car") is just... Sad. I've had that experience several times with mixers as a boom operator, and it's really hard on the whole team. To not just let go that time.. Then that person probably just thinks too hard or is very hard on him/herself..
