  • About
    I'm a freelance sound recordist in Melbourne and run my business as Moose Audio. Cut my teeth on friends short films and worked my way into the sound business over the last few years. Currently working on a cooking show for one of the national networks and hoping George Lucas will discover me for his next film...

    My gear setup is a fairly standard ENG one. I run a Sound Devices 552, Lectro UM400a/UCR411a's, Sanken COS11's, a Rode NTG-3 and an Audix SCX1-HC. Got some more kit but this is my "everyday wear". Do I make the switch to Nomad or save up for a 788t/CL8? That's my next decision...

  1. Comtek “compand” switch missing

    Oh right yes! I saw that in the M-216 manual but when it said “optional compand auto/off switch” I took it to mean that it was optional whether the device was “off” or “auto”, not optional whether the device had the switch or not. But that clarified things.
  2. Comtek “compand” switch missing

    I just recently bought these Comtek units from some sound recordist and I noticed that they are missing the little “compand” and “mic” switches are missing. Is this normal or are these fake units? They seem to work fine but not sure what to make of this.
  3. 633 loose object inside machine

    I was just playing with my Sound Devices 633 and I noticed there seems to be something loose moving inside the chassis of the machine. At first I thought it was the AA batteries but I removed them and noticed it still happens. It seems to be coming from the underside of the machine and when I hold it and rotate it I can feel the slight vibration of the moving object inside. Can anyone give suggestions about the cause of this? The 663 seems to be working well otherwise but I just got it so I haven’t used it extensively yet. On the video below you can clearly hear the sound as I rotate it.
  4. Comtek Questions - 72 vs 216 - Old vs New

    On the topic of Comtek Option P7 vs Comtek jack version, has anyone got opinions on performance of either? Is the jack version considerably less durable than the BNC, so much so that it affects performance? There’s an M-216 up for sale but it is not Option P7 and I’m wondering whether it will cut it as a bag IFB transmitter. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. The Rode NTG-3 failing in cold weather...

    I can confirm that this indeed is a problem that I have experienced. In -5°C today the NTG-3 started sputtering and fizzing and popping and then totally stopped working. Brought it back inside and in 15 mins it was working again. Gonna post an audio sample when I get home. Sending the mic in to get looked at, Rode has great warranties on their mics which shows they really stand by their products. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. T-Mobile to begin rollout of 600 MHz spectrum this summer.

    Thanks Gordon very eloquently and succinct explanation! Answered all my questions. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. BDS connectors

    Does anyone know of any low profile or right angle connectors that fit the Remote Audio BSD? The only ones I can find are these ones which are very long and not great in a bag. Extra point if you can give me a link or part number [emoji6]. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Taping mics to chest

    Great thanks John, definitely adding that to the kit! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Taping mics to chest

    I just wanted to see what opinions people had on best practice regarding taping or attaching lav mics to actors' chests. Obviously it wouldn't be the first choice but if there is no better option like if an actor is wearing only a thin t-shirt with a high neckline is it an acceptable practice to attach the mic to their chest directly on the skin? What about if they have a hairy chest? And what about high profile actors/actresses? I've heard of soundo's saying "absolutely not" especially with hairy guys but then I've a lot of success miking directly on the skin. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. BDS power plugs

    Can these moulded cables be found on mouser or digi-key do you think? How would you search for such a thing? I've tried various searches such as "right angle coaxial connector moulded cable" but can't seem to find the part.
  11. BDS power plugs

    The link isn't working, could you add the correct one to the product you were suggesting? It seem oddly difficult to find these right angle plug for the BDS. The Switchcraft 761K are very long and stick out quite wide taking a big chunk of precious bag space.
  12. Apologies in advance, I'm sure this is covered here on this group but I can't find it anywhere (yes I've tried various searches). I'm trying to import a polyphonic BWF file (8 tracks, recorded on Zoom F8) into Logic Pro X while preserving the track names that I have saved in the metadata. Is that possible? Seems like it should be a no-brainer but I can't make it work. I can do it by splitting the tracks into separate mono tracks via Wave Agent and then importing them separately into the DAW but then I lose my track name information, not to mention the annoyance of having to import each track separately. If you could help point me to some info on how to do this it would be most appreciated!

  15. Wireless guitar setup

    Thanks for your tireless efforts Larry! That cable looks great for getting the guitar into the Tx. What about going from a Rx to amp? Suggestions for going from the balanced mic output to the amp. I guess it needs some kind of reverse DI box? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
