    In ear monitors for production sound

    While they may not be in-ears (although I think the company makes a version that is) if anyone is interested in great sounding cans that can preserve your ears, I’ve been using the Puro BT5200 which features a Db monitor to gauge the volume and help audio fatigue and hearing loss from extended listening. The legitimatly flat frequency response is a bonus too. Double bonus: they sound amazing. Triple bonus: Bluetooth and cabled.

    bluetooth sound box

    A fellow soundie makes these and they’re really fantastic: https://demerbox.com/ It sounds great. It’s waterpoof. It floats. It’s nearly indestructible. It has a 50 hour (!!) battery. It has storage.... AND it’s hand made by one of us! Support each other! Cheers, Evan

    Zoom F8n.

    I have certainly been asked for my gear list. Many times. Savvy PMs/LPs know what to look for and can spot an experienced crew member by their resume + equipment. G3s and Zooms are red flags to them. And, quite frankly, I don’t blame them. In fact, I always ask other mixers what gear they use and have not hired/recommended some if they can’t match my gear.

    THX: The Deep Note

    “The Deep Note, the distinctive synthesized crescendo that is THX’s audio trademark, is one of the most iconic sounds in all of film. For the effects firm’s 35th anniversary, they’ve now shared the sheet music behind the sound.” https://io9.gizmodo.com/thx-just-shared-the-original-sheet-music-for-its-deep-n-1826357817 Cheers, Evan Meszaros

    Laurel v Yanni explained!

    Indeed! However, no one made any claims about the efficacy of government, Jay. This would be the same group of people that thought MK-Ultra was a great idea. Cheers, Evan

    Sanken Cs-M1 new mike

    Are they widely avail yet or was this a special delivery? Cheers, Evan

    Laurel v Yanni explained!

    Someone (but not me) suggested that it’s a covert gov’t mind control experiment— wherein the file has an embedded hidden track and they are using social media to test the efficacy of this potential auditory subliminal message delivery system... Someone (DEFINITELY NOT ME) sure has some control/trust issues. Cheers, Evan

    Boompole end exit to side exit conversion?

    I have two of those XLRs sitting in my amazon cart but I’m worried about their stability on the end of the pole. I can see the whole apparatus snapping off. And unfortunately I am currently using the setup you describe here and I’m not happy with it. Cheers, Evan

    Laurel v Yanni explained!

    I think what they are referencing is that the original source file was a computer pronouncing the word “Laurel”. So, I guess it is, technically, “Laurel.” Cheers, Evan

    Laurel v Yanni explained!

    Jay, I read an interesting article that touches on this and the biological voodoo mechanics behind who hears what and why..... https://apple.news/ASs4UNdVSRjCTSDwsYHoPww Cheers, Evan Meszaros

    Boompole end exit to side exit conversion?

    I have a smaller internally wired carbon fiber K-tek (can’t remember the model right now) that has a bottom XLR that I would love to get converted to mount my HM running parallel along the side. Unfortunately it’s not the K-tek with the removable end cap so buying the desired KT2AB Sidekick is not an option. I remember one company (Loon, perhaps?) made this 180dg XLR “U” adapter which is exactly what I would want but I can’t seem to find it anywhere. Any tips on something out there that I might be missing? Cheers, Evan Meszaros
  18. While we’re are at it— some silicone sleeves for my comteks would be amazing as well. The sound of PR216s hitting the floor gives me chills. Anyone have any ideas on how to make silicone sleeves to spec? Cheers, Evan Meszaros
  19. I would absolutely love a thin silicone sleeve that I could slip onto my SMVs and still use the Lectro clips. Different colors would be great. Cheers, Evan Meszaros

    Nomad error? *B

    I get this error every time I switch between primary folders. I’ve found that if I want to switch folders I need to power down before I record again. This keeps the *B error away. Cheers, Evan Meszaros

    Soundbag as Hand Luggage

    +1 If they find it, the TSA will absolutely take your Lav Bullet away from you. Their newer “Mic Drop” shape is preferable for flying. Regards, Evan

    Soundbag as Hand Luggage

    I travel exclusively for gigs (150K+ actual miles every year) and I have my kit streamlined for it. My two carry ons consist of: 1) my bag rig with 5 transmitters + lavs, all neatly buttoned up. 2) my run bag backpack with necessary accessories, including 4x98mwh batts, a few IFBs and hops. I then check all all other gear in one 1650 pelican. My goal is to have everything I need to shoot for a day or two as carry on in case of lost luggage. The only necessary thing I don’t carry on is a boom pole as I’ve been stopped before and ordered to check the pole so I don’t bother trying any more. Be aware that TSA is different at every airport (and even maddeningly fluctuates within each airport on any given day) and you will more than likely have your rig set aside for additional screening. Leave time for this, as some agents may want you to disassemble your whole bag to run it through again. After years of dealing with this I’ve gotten pretty good at talking them out of that level of nonsense - but there’s always a chance some newbie is too scared to just swab it and let it go. good luck in Dubai Cheers, Evan

    Zaxcom Automix with constant boom

    To achieve this, I have AM (post fader mode) engaged on my Lavs (Tracks 2-8) and not on my Boom (Track 1) - all of which are then routed post fader to a mono mix track and IFB feed. Works great for me. Cheers, Evan
  25. I do a lot of bag drop / follow car IFB shoots with my Nomad and in these situations AutoMix has been a great tool. It might take a minute to find the AM setting sweet spot but once you get your talent gain dialed in and the ISOs are good I usually set it and forget it. Cheers, Evan Meszaros
