  1. I had some new elastic bands for lavalier, I used Sennheiser ew100 g2 and sanken cos 11 with the rm 11, well fitted in an invisible pocket in the wrapped around the chest, but this is the result, I am quite depressed and will not spend many words, any advice to solve this? this is a clip with a poly file, 1boom 2 lav 1 3 lav2, I have the problem on both the lavs. https://drive.google.com/open?id=1-fHctNx2dnFOZijcIFm_D3VK-1r4RqNk
  2. what do you use as carrying bag for daily works to travel with your kit, recorder (in own bag), 1or 2 windshield, radio mic etc. how do you fit all your gear? I actually own a photo small bag with batteries, lavs accessories, transmitters, ifb, tape etc. I fit the photo bag, the zeppelin boom pole, my sound devices 664 in petrol bag, into a pelican trolley, but it is really heavy. Pelican is really great for safe transfers on an airplane, but not for daily small travel by car and or public transportation.

    how to solve this, lavalier noises.

    I did exactly this, used a lavstrap very similar to this with a sanken cos 11 and rm11 mounted in. the frustrating thing was that sometimes it worked beautifully but in this case was the cause of suffering. https://www.bhphotovideo.com/explora/audio/features/essential-problem-solving-accessories-lav-mics i have never used the moleskin tape, since where I am located there is not this product or has another commercial name, (is it a dr scholls product?) how thick is it, I read somewhere that the Rycote over covers are much more effective then moleskin so it has any more sense, are you agree with it? another thing that noticed is that when I wrap the sanken capsule into a Rycote overcover and attach it on the skin, and loop the cable, the results are much better than using the rm 11, the problem starts when working on hairy chests

    Sanken COS 11 cable noise

    It a multichannel file with boom and 2 lavs noisy, the capsule is fully isolated in the rm11 and wrapped into the lav strap. I read here about a gain issue on the TX, I am using sennheiser ew 100 g2 set at -20db, i could low them to to 30. Unfortunately i own 2 sankens and generaly rent what concerning lavs so i get wisi lectro whatever i want, and I Remember with sankens and sennheiser 2000 i didnt have this noise issue. Could be the couple cos11 ew100 one of the causes? Some tx/lav are noisier then others?

    Sanken COS 11 cable noise

    I asked a seamstress to realize some lav straps, with elastic band and I 've got a lot of noise, with sanken cos 11, quite frustrating, many of you complain about the noisy of sanken cable, lav straps are very useful for hairy chests but probably I made them with the wrong material, an elastic band too much rigid (or just new.) is anyone using the Ursa chest straps? I have seen some video and seems to very efficient, probably due to the material density they are made of.

    Sanken COS 11 cable noise

    I just reloaded it, and have tested. https://drive.google.com/open?id=1-fHctNx2dnFOZijcIFm_D3VK-1r4RqNk

    Sanken COS 11 cable noise

    please, can you hear this file? this is a sanken cos 11 wrapped into an elastic band around the chest? it is quite frustrating. https://drive.google.com/open?id=1-fHctNx2dnFOZijcIFm_D3VK-1r4RqNk
  8. I heard that some renting company can make an electronic update of tx ew100 g2 -g3 Sennheiser system, and get htem to work at 100 mw instead of usual 30 mw, has anyone tested them? is it possible?

    Which MS stereo solution?

    sorry to resume this old thread, I have a mkh40 and 30 in a Rycote WS kit, the 2 mics are great for ambient effects, but used it also for outdoor orchestras and other music stuff, what if need now is to record a motorbike passing with 2 people from left to right and need to get the motorbike focused and eventually to get the driver and passenger chatting to each indistinctly, would you use an mkh 416 as Mid?
  10. I want to build a TRS TRS cable to wire a Tascam dr100 line out to a canon 5d MK III mic in. can anyone suggest me a detailed scheme that helps?
  11. when mixing what are the audio levels of delivering, - 23 LUFS (Dolby scale 7) is for dialogue? or for the whole mix included effects and music? and or what are the levels normally adopted for feature film and or short movies, indies and docu, for dialogues, music and effects?
  12. I read the first of two links you posted, I am going to read the other one, probably am saying something stupid, But in i am any article, I read there is no mention at LKFS or LUFS, There is something quite objective in setting levels in a mix? where -23 lufs/ Dolby scale 7 come out? i am right now bussing some film audio via a daw and reading the levels on Izotope insight , and yes all dialogues are around -23 LUFS could this be considered as an objective value?

    25 db cable attenuator scheme trs - trs

    I need a solution to attenuate the signal from a recorder to feed a DSLR, no matter if a box with 2 trs females or a cable, a box maybe is more easy to build for me. anyway this UK guy makes this nice tool very convenient. https://www.ebay.it/itm/ATT40-STEREO-AUDIO-ATTENUATOR-40dB-REDUCE-LINE-LEVEL-TO-MICROPHONE-LEVEL/112899580191?hash=item1a4956e11f:g:THUAAOSwE0JY-nza

    being an unbalanced stereo cable, line to the mic input, I have to build 2 of them obviously

    25 db cable attenuator scheme trs - trs

    assuming that Tascam dr 100 line out is 200 ohm and the mic input on any reflex is 10 Kohm the result give resistors of 21 ohms 4952 ohm, quite hard to find. do I make something wrong? I have to wire a Tascam stereo line out into the canon 5d stereo mic input. on the specs of tascam line out is 200 ohm, but cannot find any info about mic in

    yes but seems to be quite easy to make it with few cents.

    25-30 DB pad cable for reflex

    thanks a lot for your reply, we are working on a corporate project, with basic interviews requiring a canon 5d and a lavalier and not always a boom, the bag with sound devices 664 is going to be so heavy and cumbersome so I thought to use a Tascam dr100 and wiring it directly into the canon 5d how much are the impedances of the 2 devices and what is the wattage to consider the resistors. ? I cant find any info related this.

    25-30 DB pad cable for reflex

    can anyone link here a clear detailed scheme to build a TRS cable with 25 - 30 DB pad to wire a recorder line output to any mic in on reflex?

    Alvin's cables, has anyone used them?

    their price wasn't so convenient, around 36.00 € the DTaP- Hirose, and 40.00€ the lemo5pin-BNC, for cheap compatible cables is too much, but they was available on amazon prime 1 day to deliver and so I purchased them, yes, they look weak but make the job. actually, I am powering my sd with the DTAP -Hirose cable, and have just received another same, a bulk cable with no brand purchased on Alibaba express and delivered in 45 days and looks better as quality.
  21. has anyone ever used and tested hardly this Chinese Alvin's cables? I need soon some lemo to BNC and DTaP - Hirose and they are both available on amazon prime, delivered in a couple of days. http://www.alvinscables.com/sale-10129553-alvin-s-cables-4-pin-lemo-right-angle-male-to-4-pin-cable-for-arri-lbus-fiz-mdr-wireless-focus.html
  22. How long should last the correct time code after I turned off?, the blue led keep blinking for 3 hours but if I switch it on I see the time code is reset to 0. is this normal?

    Wireless Frequencies Germany and Ireland

    what is going to be at the end? its a war: Vodafone, telecom, 3, against all sound recordists in the world by 2022 in Italy (i suppose all over Europe) goodbye over 694 Mhz and actually below that range in some areas is impossible to work.

    sd 664, time code duration, it reset to zero

    yes, but sounded strange to me it would have reset to zero.
