    Folding Bag Cart v1.0

    ah sorry y'all, haven't been here in ages. yes the c-stand mounts were custom by backstage in LA. i've since moved on to Zuca carts but this was a fun project back in the day at least...

    Calling Chicagoans - How well do you know your El?

    if you're flying into O'Hare just take the Blue Line to Logan Square or Damen, should be semi-quiet...

    Memory card survey for Zaxcom products

    i have hundreds of hours on my 3 pairs of Transcend 32gb 133x. i format both primary and mirror every morning and have never had an issue. the only time i had a problem was when i had to use a Kingston card belonging to production, i wasn't able to cut, and the nomad's red stop light started flashing. never again...

    Folding Bag Cart v1.0

    Thanks for the comments everybody. Are you talking about the c-stands? At the top of the cart they are just stabilized a bit with quickfists. The boom poles in back are just strapped to the rails. Just taking advantage of the natural floppiness of Petrol bags!

    Folding Bag Cart v1.0

    I'm finally happy with my mostly DIY bag cart. Ingredients: 1 Folding Magliner Handtruck, 2 complete C-stands, 2 C-stand mounts, 2 boom pole cases, 2 sound blankets, shelf for the mixer bag, handles, pneumatic tires, and a Pelican on the bottom with all my mics and cables. The best part is that it all folds down and fits into a Pelican 1650 (minus the c-stands) for air travel, and I rarely need more than 1 trip to the car for most jobs. I thought some of you might like it!

    Something between MKH50 and CS3e

    i know the CS3e gets praised for how well it performs in reflective interiors, but I can't bring myself to like it unfortunately. can anyone comment on whether a CMIT or the DPA4017b performs similarly well inside? thank you!
  12. Jose, I don't think you have it yet. Lectro receivers operate at line level (+5 out). I know you think you are leaving everything at mic level all the way to the Nomad, but what you are really doing is taking a line level signal from the Lectro receiver, attenuating it down to mic level, and then back up again with your Nomad preamps.
  13. i'm not sure I understand why people gain down their Rx's to mic level. on the Lectro SRb's at least, the max output of +5 is what they run internally, anything lower is just attenuating the full signal, which you'll have to gain up later with your mixer preamp.

    Testing Mic Freq Response

    you could download fuzzmeasure and buy a "flat response" reference omni. first sweep with the omni in any room, then again with other mics. this would at least give you a reference.
