  1. How to hide a Sennheiser ME 2 on talent

    Just mic 'em and be done.
  2. Red Weapon 8K Audio Issue

    I had a strange Red Weapon incident today. Providing hops to two Weapons, both cameras at least three times crashed while recording the first take, with a message that said "audio buffering". One of the DPs owned one of the cameras and was perplexed. Of course the ACs immediately wanted to rip off the receivers.. come to find out, both DPs had never completed a full reformat? I did not know there is a partial re format? Once they did that the problem went away. I have worked with the RED Weapon several times and this was the first time I have experienced this issue.

    I bought a pole from Loon last year. I contacted Don via the website. He emailed me back with the total. Told me when I received the pole to mail the check. I loved his old school style of business. The pole is my favorite, very well made. Thanks for sharing the back story on him!
  4. Senn G3 as Wireless Hop HELP!

    Several years ago when I was running G2s for hops I had a custom cable made from Remote Audio for line level. I never had any issues once I had my gain structure dialed in.
  5. COS11 with Tram 79 power capsules

    Hi Mike. I've used my Tram power supplies for my CoS 11's as well with no issues.
  6. Lectrosonics LT vs SMQV

    I like my LTs. I agree with BAB414 that they are a little clunky body wise. I will probably be getting more once I see how the FCC Spectrum madness shakes out here in Detroit area. As for 100mw vs the 250mw on the smqvs.. I do work sports jobs where the higher output option comes in handy, especially in an RF heavy environment like a football or hockey game. Range seems to be good on the LT. The LR series receiver is definitely much lighter than 411.
  7. NEW: Ambient | NanoLockit

    Klaus, are the Tiny Nanos compatible with the ACN enabled Tiny Lockits and ACL204 Lockit?
  8. Sony FS7

    Your transmitter and receiver outputs should be giving you plenty of signal strength at line level.. I have mine almost set up the same way.. Smqvs at 20 from 633 line level with line level cables, to srb at +5 out into fs series or whatever camera at line level in. You mentioned that you hear the noise when you tap your 5pin cable from your sr, do you have another to swap out? Could be the cable.
  9. Lectro SRc field reports?

    I did experience a walkie interferring with my SRC in A block. The walkie was in the 470 mhz range and at my cart. I accidentally keyed it and it killed the SRC. My mistake totally. Lesson learned. I find that SRc overall is a good receiver and I also like the LMbs and LT transmitters as well. I plan on adding B block soon.
  10. Battery Holders

    I don't use Powerex batts. I have never had a problem with either the AA or AAA Storacell holders. I use Energizer Lithium AA and AAA as well as the new I Power AA batts. Some 9volt rechargeables do not like to fit in the 9volt version however. I find if the retaining nubs do break, that the battery falls out of the holder. I too, reverse the batteries in the holder so I know which battery is dead.
  11. Battery Holders

    http://www.storacell.net/ I've been using these for years with good results.
  12. What Car Do You Drive?

    2013 Chevy Traverse . Insane amount of room, and all wheel drive which is pretty much mandatory for Michigan winters.
  13. SMQV SRb Hop Modes

    I have my srb set to +5 output to camera line level in. I come out of my mixer at 0db and have the smqvs set to 12 with the -10 light just barely lighting up. It gives me a nice strong signal and sounds good. I'm also feeding the transmitters with a line level cable.
  14. My SD633 apparently died

    SD service department are straight up people and return very fast.
  15. Can earplugs cause damage by making things bassy?

    Glad this topic was brought up. Over the years I've worked hip hop and rock shows for news magazine style shows or for the record labels. I have often had the same experience as Dan, while wearing Remote Audio high noise cans with earplugs as well and it still seemed like my ear drums were being violated. Hip hop style music makes judicious use of bass woofers that literally made me think I was going into cardiac arrest! I talked to the FOH engineer during a break once, and noticing that he did not wear hearing protection asked if he had any hearing problems. He said "no." He then when on to say how he would be mixing a jazz band that was performing the next day in the same venue. I gotta think he's not hearing full range after having his ear drums blasted the night before. He's gotta be fooling himself! Bottom line I guess if you need the work, take as many precautions on your end as possible. Don't rely on production to furnish you with anything regarding hearing protection.
