  1. Oh wow!!!
  2. Cool! How would this compare to a super softie on those mics? Less wind protection, more transparent? -Mike
  3. Well Aaton's a French company so I bet it would use a bidet... -Mike
  4. I thought this thread was going to be about fart jokes...
  5. You could try the "breath test" (gently). From Gearslutz: "What you should try is the "humidity test" or "breath test" to see if their is enough dirt on the capsule to get it to collapse. You don't want to spit on the capsule but you want to speak into without a pop filter and breath on it a bit to get a very tiny amount of moisture on the capsule. If the capsule is in bad shape the moisture from your breath will trigger conductivity across the dirt and this will show up as horrible loud thundering or crackling and the signal will cut out. Now, the breath test may also cause a good capsule to shut off for a second or two as well, but you won't hear the horrible noises a bad capsule will make when its shutting off and coming back on again."(jmikeperkins - 22nd December 2009, 08:49 PM) -Mike
  6. Hah! Love that you look totally unfazed. -Mike
  7. Correct. Most often, isos are recorded of each microphone pre-fader, so that the adjustments you to do create the mix track do not affect these recordings. Post gets all of the isolated tracks as well as the mix track you create on set, so they can choose what to use. -Mike
  8. I was able to download Mavericks from the Apple App store. If you had purchased it anytime when it was newly available before, it will be in your purchase history and available for re-download. And the update to 10.9.5 here: https://support.apple.com/kb/dl1760?locale=en_US -Mike
  9. The Tascam DR-100 Mkii has a remote that comes with it. -Mike
  10. Are you hiding the lav on the talent? I'm sort of assuming not by your post. If not, I like to put lavs in a Garfield Hush Lav and then use this clip to attach it to the talent's shirt/coat/tie: https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/261222-REG/Lectrosonics_C119_Lavalier_Microphone_Clip.html The clip is large and easy to open and grip. The wire that holds the lav is meant for a much larger mic though, which is why the Hush Lav is necessary. I use this for ADR sessions all the time and it works great. I mostly use it with COS-11s, but I think a 4060 would work fine too. -Mike
  11. I'd love a small, 8-fader (with banks), digital mixer with digital I/O. And MIDI while we're dreaming. -Mike
  12. I am a little confused by this too. Also in the specs posted above, one section seems to say that there are 4 mic inputs plus 2 line inputs, then later it just says 4 mic/line inputs. Can anyone clarify? -Mike
  13. Whoaaaaaaaaaaa.
  14. Ah, thanks everyone that makes sense. So it's just that it's possible for the 788t to trip the internal fuses because it can consume too much current. Steve, how would you mod the fuses? It is something that you can just switch to a fuse of a higher value? Or remove it entirely? Thanks all! -Mike
  15. Hey all - I went into my local dealer today intending to order a Hawkwoods NP1 cup to use with my Sonosax mixer and Sound Devices 788t. When I mentioned that I was going to use it with the Sound Devices, the sales rep said that he had heard of some issues with the Hawkwoods cups and the SD 788t - that somehow the Hawkwoods wasn't compatible with Sound Devices. Does anyone here have any thoughts on this or experience either way? Thanks! -Mike
