    Unusual lav hiding gear

    I've been looking at those. Is there adhesive on it already? Nothing really sticks well to silicone. Thanks for the comprehensive look at these! Bernie

    Advice for a novice

    I was thinking that I don't get a chance to use a 416 much and when I have its sound is so different from my CMIT-5U and not in a good way to my ear. Given that, I've never had the desire to own one as a back up. Then it occurred to me that I use a 416s a lot when working on television trucks. I also do sports A2 work and the 416 is used extensively in that context. For mics on hand held cameras, for crowd sounds, for spot effects (MMA fighting, boxing, baseball, football, soccer etc.). Every truck has at least six 416s on board. Some of them look pretty rough from years on the road but they keep on working. So given this discussion, I'm beginning to feel tempted to get a good used one as a back up.

    Plug for Reaper

    Sonic Solutions DAW had the ability to have more than one time line open way back. That's a very useful feature that I had taken for granted then.

    Plug for Reaper

    That's a good consideration as well. I just now took a closer look at the Soundcraft Ui24R, and it fits somewhere in between your QSC Touch mix and the Signature series. Good choices for sure!

    Plug for Reaper

    I appreciate the input Phillip! I'm not sure how much of this type of work I'll get going forward thus the need for keeping the cost low. I definitely don't need too sophisticated a system for these quick music records that will be primarily tracking without effects on any kind.

    Plug for Reaper

    Hello Phillip, Good to hear that Reaper is working well for you! I know you do a lot of music records and I need some advice. I recorded a jazz combo for a documentary the other day and I used my Nomad 10. I didn't have cabling for inputs nine and ten so I was limited to 8 tracks. I used my SD 302 to mix three horns to inputs 7 and 8. I was feeding two cameras and we had to kluge a monitor for the vocalist. It was way more complicated than it could have been and I've been considering investing in some gear to make it easier to do these type of sessions. I'm looking at this board: https://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/Sig22MT--soundcraft-signature-22-mtk-mixer-and-audio-interface-with-effects?mrkgcl=28&mrkgadid=1669547280&rkg_id=0&campaigntype=dsa&campaign=aaDSA&adgroup=1669547280:DSA - Product - Mixers&placement=google&adpos=1t1&creative=248832405304&device=c&matchtype=b&network=g&gclid=Cj0KCQjw9LPYBRDSARIsAHL7J5luEjBn7OwLUmwVmyj-YdQeIZBXZ1ROmwOgdJ9ytZD9gQ7sQl_SeEsaAh_VEALw_wcB It comes with recording software but I'm certain it would play well with Reaper too. The price point is attractive and the quality seems decent. I'm really open to other ideas as well. I'd like at least 12 mic preamps. Your thoughts? Bernie
  7. Those look really nice! I don't use a Pelican around town, but could use an upgrade to my $8.00 plastic bins. Thanks for sharing! BB

    Best small format recorders for planting

    Hi Alek, Good to see you on here my friend! I have two PDRs if you want to borrow one and check it out. I just got them a few months ago and haven't used them yet. BB

    How to fix a audio track after the shoot?

    And I just did a quick test and wasn't able to do much at all with the audio. I tried the tool for clipping and it did almost nothing to improve things. I tried some other tools too with no success. Zooming into the wave form the I can see the distortion on the peaks of the wave form. They aren't just squared off, they angle down with a dip so they look almost like two peaks. Its not salvageable I'm afraid. At least not with these tools.

    How to fix a audio track after the shoot?

    I use Izotope a lot and have the latest version. I'm sorry but as others have said there isn't a lot that can be done with this. It can be made less painful to listen to but I doubt your client will ever be satisfied. As others have pointed out you need to find an alternate recording if one exists.

    Happy Birthday Jeff! This site and your friendship mean so very much to me!

    Arc welding can have an effect on wireless as well. I've never had an issue with Lectro gear around it.

    Show me your bag

    Just used a 10T and it was in a small Stingray bag. Wasn't using the L-mount batteries but it did have the AA battery sled on it and there seemed to be plenty of space below it.

    Lectronics antennae for Zaxcom QRX200

    Thanks for the great explanation Larry! I do know that I get much better reception with my two SNA-600s on the outside of the bag than I ever got with whips or even my home-brew coaxial dipoles.
