    Production Sound Mixer - primarily features and TV.
  1. Oh. I've written a few, but I can't say that any have been comprehensive. I described concisely the people I know as being enthusiastic about sound, respected in their field, and active in the community.
  2. More grandchildren?
  3. I remember 2006. I put a CF in my 744T. It asked if I wanted to format it. I either said yes or no, and moments later I could hit record.
  4. I'll be there again this year!! As far as I know.
  5. If the boxes are mine, on prep day or day 1, I'll be sure they work. After that, I hand over the TC boxes and couldn't care less about what they do. If they're not mine, I check the box settings are correct and jam the box.
  6. I undid the screws but couldn't get mic apart. Found video on MKH60, but wanted me to unsolder the XLR assembly, assuming I had been able to get it apart. So it's not set screws at least. Mic is in LA, which I failed to mention. It was in to Sennheiser about a year ago, but only a 6 month service warranty. Don't want to spend $300/£200 again so soon. It's an ambient rattle. Should be simple.
  7. Before I send it in... I have a little rattle in my 50. It's bee to Sennheiser recently, but not sure recently enough. Frustrating this happened. Should I take it apart and have a look?
  8. Except when you're the only filmmaker on set, and then you just feel like shit.
  9. My advice is have the camera department jam the camera in the morning and after lunch. Worked for me with 3x minis for 5 months.
  10. I was on a plane Friday, and decided to watch a couple of movies. I know that headphone listening is what it is, but I watched one movie that had such poor quality production sound that it was painful. It was a big budget movie. A terrible one. But really just should have been better. Then I watched "Fight Club" again. Beautiful. I'll add that the other movie was mixed by an accomplished and experienced sound mixer. It could have been shooting style or lack of available crew, or any number of things other than being his fault. My point is that things have changed.
  11. I find the weird combo of analog ins and digital ins confusing. I'd think if you have 10 faders, there ought to be a way of getting 10 digital or 10 analog inputs into the machine. I still think if I was doing a "road" movie, I'd have this for insert/process cars. 6 analog is enough really. Can't wait to see one in real life.
  12. Cart in front of the horse.
  13. Zaxcom has innovative products. That's where the love affair begins and ends with me. This whole thing just makes me 100% certain I will never buy Zaxcom products. I have been on the fence a few times, and considered some products to supplement my gear, but no more. This has truly left a sour taste in my mouth. Going after Tascam was one thing, but to be very whiny about a small company with a history of serving our tight-knit community, just shows that Glenn is missing the big picture. I am grateful for the ability to express my opinion here, and I have tried to do it delicately and with polite consideration and criticism. But this just sucks.
  14. Frankly, there are loyalties in this business that go way deeper than feature sets. I think you put out good products and back them up with quality build, good support, and kind customer service. There are lots of "similar" products, but in our business, we go with who we're comfortable with. I can't imagine this lawsuit is going to help Zaxcom in any way whatsoever, even if they win. It'll only further people's decisions to look past feature sets and into the company itself.
  15. Amazing - I always carry a little battery speaker and big AC speaker - But I don't really have a collection of sound effects. I have downloaded things very quickly and had various bits of music and effects available, but wouldn't work in the middle of nowhere. Time to up my game!
