    Ultrasound, IoT and wireless

    Someone encountered a problem with something like this last year.

    Smart Slate Preference

    I haven't. I've always been under the impression that that's more geared towards episodic shows?

    How are you liking the ProMaster City so far? A seller in Huntington Beach seems to be selling them for less than $19k USD new these days which seems like a sweet bargain for what you get out of it.
  4. I'm not a tin foil hat / Richard Stallman type but it doesn't matter how careful you are on a social network, once your info is up there it is out there following around no matter where you are on the web. Electronic Frontier Foundation article ACLU article I do agree that we are living in amazing times where communication and information is so vast and easy to acquire these days which is absolutely great. That being said, a lot of the current main stream tools to communicate have some very shady practices that shouldn't be overlooked. The good news is that there are alternatives (such as this GREAT forum) and while yes, it might not be as "convenient" as it's not just piled into a never ending stream of photos from your friends, it's still worth it!
  5. The great thing about our industry is that unlike support for consumer electronic goods, you can actually pick up the phone and often get on the line with a real person who can walk you through issues. It's great being able to call someone like Sound Devices / Lectrosonics and talk to someone who actually knows the product and is more than happy to help you.
  6. I don't have a Facebook account either but on my computer, anytime that annoying Facebook login thing pops up, try hitting the escape key. Seems to get rid of it on my end (Mac / Firefox). As for Facebook trying to take over, I agree it's a rather short sighted approach to keeping people in the loop. Even back in the day when I had an account for Facebook, thanks to them always using algorithms to show you a never ending stream of the food your aunt is eating and/or updates on the mundane life of that guy you sat next to in the 2nd grade, I would often miss that actual "good stuff" that was announced to begin with unless you browsed to the appropriate page.

    legal wireless microphone frequencies

    No 800mhz/700mhz stuff allowed anymore. 600mhz is still legal but dodgy sometimes as they turn on the 5G stuff.

    Longest lasting

    I've never had anything run longer than an SMQV. I routinely get 8+ hours on NiMH batteries with them and lithiums would add considerable run time to that.

    Favorite Plug-Ins for Post

    That's a cool utility, Jay! I currently have RX4 Advanced. It's a great tool that I use on every project, but would you all say it's worth to upgrade to the latest and greatest version of it?

    Same. Besides EQ, probably my most used plugin.

    The "Best client/producer/agency quotes" thread

    A client was recently confused as to why I wasn't able to sync a Lectrosonic R1A to his wireless Apple headphones. "But it's wireless!"
