  1. Todd Weaver, "I, Tonya"

    i loved it - great soundtrack, and great sound recording. sb
  2. OT: Best all-round DI box?

    http://www.orchid-electronics.co.uk/ British, solid, and most excellent. cheaper than radial in the UK, but not necessarily so in the USA!!...... sb
  3. WTB 4 Channel Recorder for Tetrahedral Mic

    Sonosax SX-R4+ for this job for sure. mazing mic pres, fantastic headphone amp, and very soon to come A format to B format decoding within. It's a brilliant sounding machine...... sb
  4. Camera operator dies on set

    Mark was brought up into the business - his father was Douglas Milsome, who was a very well known operator and then DoP for Stanley Kubrick. Mark was just on the cusp of operator/DoP and was an absolutely delightful breath of fresh air to work with. Not a hint of attitude or self importance. He was quietly confident, and let his work speak for him. He was one of the most human and easy going people I have ever met and worked with, as described by someone yesterday, a real gentle gentleman. Everyone over here is stunned and shocked. I have heard no more details of what actually happened, other than a car stunt went tragically wrong. It really is very, very, sad. Simon B
  5. How often do you get clean lines on lavs?

    But... at least with modern reality you are dealing with modern clothing, which tends to make for less game ending situations than period costumes (especially if wardrobe insist on old fabrics). My pet hate atm is circa 1900 men's shirts - the ones with a kind of cardboard collar and bib arrangement at the front. It is basically a sheet of creaky cardboard in the exact spot where you want to put a lav mic. Happy days.... sb
  6. Audio LTC Framerate conversion?

    It shouldn't really be a problem. sb A second will still last a second, so - even if the sync point is nearly at the end of a second... the maximum error should be only a frame at te point of sync. You should be fine.... sb
  7. Soundfield/Ambisonics delivery workflow

    Be aware that on a Zoom F8, with the latest software, you can record A format on 4 tracks, and B format on the other 4. Likewise on the Sonosax SX-R4+ (it is coming very, very, soon). The B format conversion occurs within the machine at the time of recording. just saying....... Laters..... sb
  8. Delivering files from multiple recorders

    Regarding the ALE thing. Avid uses the BEXT chunk to derive track names. Only the first 8 track names will be in the BEXT chunk on account of size limitation. So - if you have poly files with more than 8 tracks, Avid will only load the first 8 track names. If you import an ALE file into Avid, it can find the rest of the track names. Yves-Marie Omnes and I have been 'working on' Avid to try and get them to use iXML, and they would then be able to import all the track names. Bourke - if I sent you some mono tracks from an Audio Ltd 1010 digitak radio mic transmitter - might you have a look at them please? They dont have proper start times, but I believe the TC value is written into the filename - would you be able to incorporate these into a poly merge with other files? Many thanks, Simon B
  9. NEW SMWB and SMDWB Lectrosonic units Announced..

    I think to be strictly accurate... Zaxcom has a patent on a 'virtual multitrack' system, but I dont want to hijack this thread...... sb
  10. Neumann RSM 191 Matrix box needed?

    Wow - so my grey matter still works then ;-)
  11. Neumann RSM 191 Matrix box needed?

    Now.... if I remember correctly....... There are two issues. The first is the powering of the capsules in the mic, which has been dealt with partly above...... The second is the business of the capsules within the mic. I seem to remember that the 'S' capsule, the figure of 8 capsule... is not one capsule at all, but is in fact two capsules, back to back. This would then explain the 7 pin cable between the matrix box and the mic, 3 sets of 2 wires, 1 set for each capsule in the mic, and an overall earth/shield. I could be wrong about this, but I am rapidly convincing myself that I am correct. If the above is correct then you would not, easily, be able to power the mic capsules directly from the mixer/recorder and decode within the same. Kindest, Simon B
  12. Production Mix Structure

    Brilliant advice Crew. I have been both the dumb shit, and the fuck up. I much prefer the former ;-) James - watch out for end boards - make especially sure that you are running when it is and end slate ;-) sb
  13. We are just about to post the last few videos from IBC 2017. we just uploaded a few more, including Lectro, Sony Digital Radio Mics, Ambient, and more...... Enjoy..... sb
  14. NEW: Audio Ltd - DDX1010

    The audio path of the TX needs to 'hear' timecode when it is in jam mode, so... you can make up a jam cable from your TC Op to the 3 pin mic plug connector for the A10 Tx, or you can play TC through your headphones and put the Tx mic near them. That said - I believe that the RTC now fitted holds TC for circa 2 days with no batteries in the Tx (super capacitor I guess). I am not sure of the accuracy of this though. sb
  15. NEW: Audio Ltd - DDX1010

    It is typical of regular Bluetooth range. I would say circa 10-20 feet when in a room, and a bit less outside. You just need to be 'near' an actor or whoever to make it work. sb
