  1. Hi there, after my 742 fell off the pole twice I needed a way to improve the the mounting system. So far it only snaps into the matching XLR counterpart making it very easy to not having it locked properly. With the older TRX700 I can use a cut off version of a Rycote plugon holder but not with the 742. I now had the idea of reducing the housing of the cone and Kortwich in Berlin did a very good job in doing so:
  2. my BoomOp will love it: weighs only 3.1oz (88g)!! and no ext. antenna needed?!
  3. Exactly. The Beta I was testing had this feature to create a playlist off of assigned keys. It just wouldn't stop but play through all of them. Hope Marcel will listen to us ...
  4. I'm looking for a software that runs on a mac and offers what is called "O-Ton-Modus" or "cue mode" on Samplitude. One splits a track into several clips and when hit the space bar it plays one clip, pauses at the beginning of the next clip until one hits space again. And so on. Its just what I want for prerecorded phone conversations. I don't wanna use those cartridge-type software. Just not flexible enough. I need to rearrange the clips on the fly. Any ideas?
  5. it's a Series. Season 1 / Episode 1-10 is finished.
  6. we are still shooting this one. First Netflix production in German. It's a fascinating story! Can't wait to see it this Winter.
  7. Marcel said that it wouldn´t be diffilcult to implement the feature but he is gonna wait for more requests first. Come on guys - send an email ;-)
  8. just in case (and I believe if you need to do playback of prerecorded dialog you do) anyone else would be interested in this kind of feature implemented in Soundplant please let the guy behind Soundplant (Marcel) know. He offered to customize the software at a very reasonable price. But if it is just me it´s still a bit too much I think. If he gets feedback from more potential users he might implement it. here is the email: soundplant ADD soundplant DOT org
  9. you should have bet some money on it ;-) Got promising word from Marcel ...
  10. got help from Soundplant´s Marcel: my font Arial was corrupted. After deleting and reinstalling (he even provided a link to that) it opens as expected. For phone conversation one can assigne the whole file to several keys (copy mode) and then use the waveform to adjust the IN and OUT differently for each key. That way I can adjust everything within Soundplant. If only I could use one single key to trigger the assigned keys one by one. When mixing dialog I can have a finger on the space bar but looking for the right key for every line is a pita.
  11. something is wrong here. thats how it looks when I open preferences:
  12. Soundplant could be my fav!! Just run into some issues with it. running OSX 10.8.5 and SP43 (demo) I am having several issues: assigned keys have no title or any indicator written on them when mousing over any keys no indicator either pops up when playing sounds from different keys the waveform stays with the last selected key space bar doesn´t work as stop tried an older version of SP but that doesn´t allow to copy one key to another?
  13. starts this Thursday over here. Just read this article with my morning coffee. Did you plant a mic inside the prop?
  14. 200ft range is what Glenn says in the video. So I would expect to get maybe 150ft. That's just 50 meters. Mmh ... But the weight is nice. My 742 with an ext USB powerpack runs 6hrs but weighs a lot more.
  15. I never change the cones on my 742's anyway. One is analog and the other digital. It's just not sturdy enough to change it on a daily basis. What else isn't "proper" on the ZMT48V?
  16. it is a ZMT3 with 48V and XLR connector. Real runtime on a NP50 might be 2-3 hrs I guess.
  17. thats the big IF. My ZMT3 runs 3.5-4h max on a Fuji NP50. And thats without 48V.
  18. for Neverclip to work you DO NEED compressor working! That's from Howy. Otherwise you dont overload your mic pres but the TRX would not record / transmit the hot signal. So I have mine at -3dB, ratio 20:1, fast&fast.
  19. seems the two little mono/stereo switches below the headphone outs need some cleaning. Doing several on/offs rapidly brought it back to life. btw: I thought mono would feed a stereo signal to both ears? With Cooper Mono seems a Stereo-Signal gets routed to the left (tip) output only. Why is that?
  20. first problem in 10 years of using my CS208V1: headphone out 2 and 3 are used for IFB BoomOp and Director/Video etc. Now when I´m pressing PL the audio cuts out on those 2 outs (which wasn´t the case so far). Thats when using the ext slate mic. The PL signal sounds like a bad gated mic (on/off/on/off) Switching the headphone out from stereo to mono on HP2 cured the problem for a couple of hours. Now it doesn´t make a difference. In headphone 1 (my one) everything still sounds as always including PL with ext slate mic. So I guess the ext mic, the ext mic-preamp is still working fine. Does this ring a bell for anyone? Any Cooper user experienced something like that before?
  21. thanks! Good to know.
  22. They sell those dots. But I doubt very much they will sell the straps too. They've got their own brand ...
  23. Where did you buy them?
  24. Cedar Germany asked me bout my recent findings ...
  25. got a Mix8 and have found a way to pimp my small standby / bag-cart
