    A little rattle in my MKH50

    Set screws loosen... and as many of us who ab-use the 50 daily eventually learn.... it's no wonder. Round-trip Boston to Connecticut, adjusted & back in 5 days. Grazie mille Sennheiser-Neumann sorcerers.
  4. brilliant, mate...

    Favorite CF Card reader with USB 3.0 interface?

    Delkin Devices USB 3.0 Dual Slot SD UHS-II and CF Memory Card Reader

    CF card corruption?

    On Delkin CF 700x and on Delkin SD 633x cards- 3 or 4 out of more than a dozen of each have produced "pops, thwaps" about .5 sec each and I also suspect it's the client's reader. For several months now I hand over production cards seated in my card reader with usb attached instructing Data/DIT to leave them seated for the transfers.......no more "thwaps"

    Best inside mic for least echo.

    What I've used in bathrooms might work for you- Neumann KM185, Senn MKH50, Neumann tlm102

    Neumann km184 < would this work as a boom mic?

    On a feature a few back a Schoeps 41 cap died & I went 3 happy weeks with a Neumann KM150 & a KM185 inside [cranked, but flat- nice] & a 416 EXT. Pleasant dailies...
