  1. Looking Into Buying Zaxcom IFB

    Would you be able to provide a specific link to the one that is working well for you. There are a lot of antennas listed at L-Com. Thanks! CRAIG

  3. Sound Report Writer app

    Haven't heard anything yet. App is getting harder and harder to use and the warning that the app needs to be updated keeps coming up. Hope he can find the time soon to do so. CRAIG
  4. Morning all. I am a Production Mixer up in Vancouver, Canada who does mostly TV Series work. At the moment, all us broadcast people up here in the sound field are likely looking to the US to see how the sale of the 600MHz Spectrum is going to soon affect us up here, as it did/is down there. Though, there could be differences in how big it will, or could, affect our jobs, and the gear we use. Who knows what the Candian Government will do exactly. As of now, the Canadian Government has indicated it will be at least 2 years until an auction will happen. They are still trying to decide how it will happen, and what the whole process will look like. I plan to send an email, of a sort of impact statement, to the Canadian Government. I have just discovered canadians, and canadian companies have until November 2nd to submit comments about how the sale will/could affect them, if held. So all you canadian sound guys may want to start emailing fast! Anyways, after all that, I would like to hear from our US counterparts, their comments on how the 600MHz spectrum sale has/is/will affect them in terms of their gear changes, or otherwise. As an example, I sat down, and listed all the wireless gear I possess in the 600MHz range. I found that if I had to change it all to new blocks it would cost approximately $55,000 CND. Scary! None of my stuff is reblockable, as I have found out from Lectrosonics. I would have to buy straight up all new gear. Lots of boat anchors. Yes, I would be getting the latest and greatest, but the stuff I have now is still doing the job quite nicely thank you. So would love to hear from you. Thanks... CRAIG
  5. Production Mix Structure

    Been doing it like mike westgate has described for years as well. Basically using the boom mixed into lavs to get it to sound like it looks on the wider shots. Whether post uses it or not is a mystery. CRAIG
  6. Sound Report Writer app

    I heard fom him right away. He is very busy right now. He is also an active mixer. It is on his list, but not on the too unfortunately. He assured me he will get to it soon. Craig
  7. Sound Report Writer app

    Thanks Jose. I have sent an email and we will see what happens. Cheers!
  8. Sound Report Writer app

    Does anybody know the creator of this app? Tyler Faison I believe his name is, of inaudible labs. Apple has sent a note saying the app is in need of updating to work with current IOS, and will not be supported soon. It is running VERY sluggishly right now. Would love for him to update it so I can keep using is great little app. Thanks. CRAIG
  9. Bag/Ditty for wires and transmitters

    I use a Cinebag. Lots of options on their website. CRAIG
  10. Sound cars

    Wandering Ear, you have a great security system! CRAIG
  11. Cedar DNS and Schoeps Super CMIT

    I should clarify that I do not own either of these. I just seeing them pop up more now and thought, isn't it a better idea to let post do these noise reduction things. Wanted to see what people's experiences were with using them, or just hear some opinions. CRAIG
  12. Cedar DNS and Schoeps Super CMIT

    Just curious to hear from any POST people here about usefulness of tracks that arrived to them having used either the new Cedar DNS or the Schoeps Super CMIT with the 2 auto noise reduction settings. I see these two pieces of equipment and think, isn't it something the peeps in post can do better and with more success because they are in a far superior listening environment? Or is it in fact helpful, if us users don't go overboard with its use in the field? Though, I realize the Super CMIT outputs affected and unaffected channels of audio, so maybe no issue there. Thanks! CRAIG
  13. Lectro Transmitter Gain Settings

    Mine are all wired SM only configuration. Same as Robert I suspect. I find the same noise level issue as him with Universal wired lavs. I set my levels with the assistance of the meter on the 411 and/or Venue system display, keeping in mind that it is not a bad thing to tickle the red. I find the red to be when the graphic display square waves for a brief second. I see that and back it off a bit. If there is a yelling/talking normally bits then I set it accordingly so as to not overdrive. All depends though. Big voice can go down to 22. Low talker up to 36. In the end there is also a "what are my ears telling me" check as well. CRAIG
  14. Lectro Transmitter Gain Settings

    I find I run my Cos-11s and Lectro SMs at 30ish. CRAIG
  15. DPA RFI Problem

    I had the same problem and connected pin 1 to the shell on both ends and the problem went away. I was using a Neumann KMR81 though, and I connect up next to the mic to add to Rado's question, if it matters....
