  1. LOM instruments and microphones

    That was me. I deleted it, as I was not sure if my questions made sense at all as I understood at that time. First of all, I'd like to express, that it seems kinda cool what you do (and that what you offer is too low to play around what it is useful for... um I haven't said this ;-) ). However this is a rather professional users forum in a niche environment of audio production, as you probably know. The humble question is, how can your products be adapted in our world? So do I understand the following correctly? The Uši/Ucho have a TA3 connector (aka miniXLR); Uši refers to a matched pair of Uchos; Uši is Slovak for ears, Ucho for louse; They operate unbalanced on a 2-10V bias voltage, one pin is blind. The Pro versions come with a cable that goes to some PCB board, fitted in a regular XLR(M), hosting an electronic balun circuit. This cable does more or less a comparable job of lets say a DPA DAD6001-BC or an Ambient EMPXLR or maybe a Schoeps CCM cable. If I understood relevant parts of the above correctly: Could you describe your matching process? What is your pin assignment on the TA3 mic side? Will (pre) orders be accepted for cable-less Uši/Ucho only on your webshop? All the best Daniel

  3. Zaxcom Fusion and 192KHz Recording

    Why wouldn't multiple c-linked 7-series Recorders be an option? What are applications for 6-8 channels ultrasonic recordings? The used market page at Sonosax offers some SX62R that might meets your specs. No clue about their ultrasonic preamp performance. https://www.sonosax.ch/second-hand-market/ It is a bit indifferent in its description if the SX62R dumps 8x 24/192 data onto its mass storage. Briefly lying over the manual I could not find any mention it does not.
  4. You pay with more information than you gain. I just don't feel comfortable with it. https://twitter.com/Snowden/status/975147858096742405 https://ptrace.fefe.de/facebook-meedia.html (german) Probably not an uncommon allergy, when you walk to C4 in Heliosstr. 6a.
  5. Best ENG boom pole

    I can imagin :-)
  6. Thnx Roland, I am a bit allergic to this company and always grateful if people carry information further.
  7. Best ENG boom pole

    Thnx for the reply. While we are at it, getting a bit off topic; do you observe a higher noise floor on the "standard" CMIT signal compared to the CCM8 or lets say the CMIT 5U?
  8. I wonder how the overdub/punch feature is implemented and useful for on camera situations (On the 6/10). You have lets say a stereo track of a song two talents are dancing to while they have a dialogue. Both wear a hidden earpiece like phonak roger/invisity systems. The song tracks are written (actually copied) into the poly.wav file as isolated tracks? Also, SD is a bit contradictory weather the musicians add-on is available for the mixpre3. Their news article mentions only the 10T and 6 models, but their feature comparison chart includes the mixpre3.
  9. Best ENG boom pole

    For what application is this relevant? MS with one digital mic and one analog that is sufficiently delayed?
  10. Sounds of paragliding

    I just stumbled over this. The music is a bit distracting, but still fascinating. I wonder, what setup was used.
  11. Best ENG boom pole

    Most compact model I know of is the VdB BB-QT. However: would not be my answer to
  12. NEW: Audio Ltd - DDX1010

    I just found these tests vs Lectrosonics smdb/srb: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GUf7SqHn0zA https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DBttQqrm8ao https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iwp-qJvEjdw He also posted the same videos with Lectros vs a Zaxcom ZMT3/QRX235 audio track.
  13. An observation at 493MHz.

    This is interesting to me or anyone thinking about what RFExplorer version to buy. I'd be curious the setup in detail. Version of the unit/module and firmware, antennas/filters used, settings, etc.
  14. Tascam DR10 Timecode solution

    Is it a feature or a bug?
  15. Zoom f8 audio files overwritten

    Not sure if this is the case in other sound professions with "No Behringer" Have you seen something like "No Røde" before?
  16. Zoom f8 audio files overwritten

    Put the SD in some linux system, make an image with dd or ddrescue. Make sure, the SDcard is not automounted. This will look somehow like this: umount /dev/mmcblk0 dd if=/dev/mmcblk0 of=sdcard.image bs=512 Then run testdisk on the image testdisk sdcard.image Alternatively, PhotoRec might find the file. (a sister project of testdisk) If all else fails, in theory, search with some hex editor for any continuous sequences that are not zeros. However, I have not yet done such a thing and this is pure theory. Be sure to understand what the commands you issue do (especially with the "if" "of" options of dd) read the manual and sufficiently current howtos. Work with the image and copies of it. A lot of data is frequently destroyed by rescue approaches. Do not fumble around with the original media, like: BTW which?
  17. 2.4 GHz amp in bag

    As this discussion seems to turn already into a flamewar, here's some funfact: In Germany and possibly a lot of other non North American places, outside the sounddepartment(, and sometimes for simplicity within the sound dep,) a "Comtek" is a common noun derived from a brand name. Funnily, 99% of the time the RX will be some generation of an EK 300 and most people asking for a comtek have never even seem or gave out one before (or any ERX).
  18. True, not sure though if the RFE Signal Generator might be of use.
  19. These situations when a RF-Explorer is useful...
  20. Headphone

    I guess you are being ironic or did I miss some vintage redux from Beyerdynamic?
  21. Headphone

    Surprisingly... it depends. The best HP is the one you're used to and learned to judge with. Best thing to start is to walk into some store that provides professional lines from Beyerdynamic, Sony, Sennheiser and Ultrasone and ultimate ears and compare them with you ears. However you may not find such a store, so order some models with the option of returning them and do a listening test. And ask yourself: For what application doing "location sound"? Booming, mixing? ENG, narrative or documentary? Bag or cart? How important is shielding from the environment for you? Will you be close to the action or close to combo village? Also, there is no such thing as "on location". An airport apron is highly different than a small flat. Tropical weather is different to some winterwonderland. My 2 ct: Most people coming from ENG/bagwork prefer the HD-25 (or derrivates). It was made for disk jockeys. But was one of the few or the only option for location sound if you wanted something lighter than the DT-48. Both became somewhat an industry standard first because of a lack of alternatives, then because everybody else used. If I'm on a cart or at least, if I don't boom, I highly prefer (and advise) something around the ear instead of on the ear. I've been quite happy with the DT-100, DT150, Custom Studio, DT-770 from Beyerdynamic, all come with pros and cons, like any other model. When booming I use cheap ear hooked plugs that regularly die in the laundry.
  22. Zaxcom TRXFB3

    Show hosts, SNG reporters, anchormen, remote guests frequently wear some RX/TX setup. Zaxcom just made a Wisycom RPU300 for belt applications.
  23. Schoeps MiniCMIT

    Standard http://www.schoeps.de/en/products/w140 as mentioned in Posts #67 and #91. It works well and as expected on this suspension: http://rycote.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/09/041118_INV7HG-MKIII-trans.png. It works also well, if you mount the mic to the back of the Inv-lite with the non-angled XLR between the lyres (this brings up other issues though and is just a quick workaround). This is nothing intuitive. My best guess is some aerodynamic oddity with the lyres in combination of the W140. Who knows... Just don't buy/use the Inv-lite21 for a MiniCMIT for a bit fast moving boom operations. Rather try the K-tek thing or an inv6/7 or wait until Cinela comes up with something. Happy for you though that the inv-lite 19 with the 4017c does not have this issue.
