  1. Ceiling mic

    I've used the Shure MXA910. 2' x 2' panel replacement "tiles". 8 lobes. Dante controlled. Pretty unbelievable, must say.
  2. Mic Bra mod

    I'm getting ready to embark on a project that will require wiring a lot of sweaty bodies so I'm playing with a few ideas. 1) NeoPax Mic Bra. I cut a small hole in half of the material and inserted the wire into the strap. No more loose wire. 2) I'm gonna lay a small bead of hot glue, like on this knee brace, and see if that helps it to stick. I got a URSA strap. It is sticky. It is expensive. It is too short (nothing more than a 40" chest).
  3. Ursa Strap

    Got a URSA chest strap from Trew (Thanks Glen). It does indeed stay up better than the Neopax mic bra. However. 1) It's expensive compared to the Neopax 2) It's only 40" long total. If you consider 2" for velcro, it's 38". I have a 40" chest and it just fits. My vision for this was to use it on football players, coaches, etc. They don't have 40" chests. Hopefully they will make a larger size, and drop the price. Or Neopax will put sticky stuff on a new version of their mic bra.
  4. White space hustle

    Thanks Larry. Good read.
  5. High temperature lav mic technique

    Boom mic???
  6. Zaxcom Deva V or 5

    If he wants a backup, I have a Deva 4 for sale. And the FireWire port works great! I'll even include a CF reader/writer.
  7. Control surface vs mixer

    I have a Zaxcom Cameo mixer I'll make you a deal on. Outstanding routing options.
  8. Suggestions - kitchen table unscripted discussion

    Don't overthink it. Take Phil's advice and boom it. Determine upfront which will be the main camera, and the one that you follow, including his frame line. Just make sure you hear the person(s) the main camera is pointing at. Stick your microphone over that. Let the second camera, and production, know that since you can't wire people, wide and tight won't work. You will mandate the frame line of the second camera. Also let them know that the second camera can't go to the other end of the table and point at another conversation without another sound guy. Two cameras, 2 sound guys.
  9. SD 688 and Venue wiring

    Someone out there using a SD 688 with a loaded Lectrosonics Venue. Mulling over how best to wire the two together. I hate to use the six full-size XLR's in the event I need to plug a mic cable in or something that needs phantom power. Do you use the six TA3 inputs? This would put my 6 wireless tracks on tracks 11-16. Any post problem with this? Wish SD had routing options with these recorders…
  10. iPower 700 runtime in IFB

    Thanks Ryan.
  11. iPower 700 runtime in IFB

    Curious at what the new iPower 700’s run time is in a Lectro IFB. I have the 520s, and they're older. They are good for about 8 hrs. Will the new ones make it through a 12 hour day?
  12. DIY sharkfins (Ramsey LPY41)

    Nothing like a good RF discussion to get Larry to dust off the keyboard. Thank you kind sir for your expertise and knowledge.
  13. DIY sharkfins (Ramsey LPY41)

    Hey Cleve. Since you know this gentleman, request a version that has the connectors at the large end. That's how all of us use it. Just a thought. Please and thank you
  14. DIY sharkfins (Ramsey LPY41)

    Question for those that know more about this than I do - Could you put a connector at the larger end of the Antenna? Looks like the trace runs from one end to the other. Scrape away the Epoxy (or whatever it is) and solder to the other end?
