  1. Next level on-camera microphone in M/S

    Patrick, that is so lovely - nice to see the BD1 atop the camera. No S obviously but I hope OP doesn't care about that! Jez
  2. SONA Dutch translation please?

    And thanks Vincent!
  3. Sound Devices MixPre-3 vs Zoom F4

    Hey yes it was a joke - but I'm not noted for my humour (save on MS discussions) so fair enough. Actually Inari has the last laugh because I can only see the link in GIGANTIC FONT! So therefore cannot see it. But I'm still trying (because I'm damn sure it's a fine retort)! Haven't voted, but I veer towards the 'neither' - MP6 and F8 being the most obvious contenders for usefulness to me ... but that's why companies now are very happy to develope and present alternate version families of machines. Welcome to JWS and truly thanks for the write ups, Inari - I'm a big Ozu fan ... and Tanazaki ... arigato! Jez
  4. Sound Devices MixPre-3 vs Zoom F4

    In my experience specifying cable and connector characteristics is little use without knowing what grade solder was used. J
  5. SONA Dutch translation please?

    Tim, thanks, you probably answered the question for me. I guess it's a location (in Papua New Guinea) - I reckoned all the other 'non-translatable' repeated words in the listings were locations but I never thought it for SONA - partly because of it being so close to 'sound' as a word and because I'm very familiar in abbreviations ( I share a lot of FX with fellow French, Swedish and Danish editors for instance). It was never an 'issue' to know the answer for sure but assuming it's a location is good for me until I eventually need to check details with the director (who's an anthropologist). Many thanks and cheers! Jez Adamson
  6. The Battery Will Kill Fossil Fuels—It's Only a Matter of Time

    ' "Batteries don't kill fossil fuels - people do" '
  7. Nagra Stories Sound-men won’t ever tell

    And thanks also for the great detail! And for making my night with a smile! Great stuff! My only Nagra story is convincing Chinese customs that, whilst it was a (functioning and looked after) thing of beauty, it was a transit item and not an import. That was a few days after my mate in Hong Kong couldn't get rid of his washing machine fitter for questioning about the thing of beauty left at the table at the front door. Again, though, Dan - terrific story, cheers! Jez
  8. SONA Dutch translation please?

    SONA This might be the most ridiculous translation request ever on a "professional" user group BUT it isn't coming up on bollocks.translate or 'tother obvious tries. I expect it means - or is short for something meaning - SOUND, but I would love to know for sure what a Dutch recordist (several decades ago) labelling (excellent) tracks actually meant by SONA. BTW (sic) there are a few abbreviations in labelling and those there are are obvious. I just want to be sure I'm not mistranslating a bunch of FX / wild tracks. I've done this a lot with French (and know my way around GP for instance) but I'm hoping a Dutch friend here might set my mind at rest why SONA fails to translate easily with online CRAP Cheers! Jez
  9. Sound Devices MixPre-3 vs Zoom F4

    Hmm, my 302 was also fried when accidentally feeding 48v to it's outputs. And that's a pro machine. J
  10. And / or triple the channel count. Grandpa was also of course the first King of Lilliput back in 1970!
  11. Sony TC-510 Tape Deck Needed

    Cheers Dela, interesting stuff. Anyone know if Mindhunter Netflix is any relation to Mindhunters film? Jez
  12. The "Best client/producer/agency quotes" thread

    I assumed/assume the DOP was making a joke. Otherwise he's probably come across a blimp equipped with a sound mirror.
  13. Nagra Stories Sound-men won’t ever tell

    Patience Joseph! My mate Dan used one, and he's a relative youngster like myself. They were used extensively early on I believe in the UK paired with a brilliant SQN 3M preamp combo for news and reportage, especially in the difficult (warzone etc) field. Good details probably available on the SQN website. Jez
  14. Gotham Sound Interview "Off Mic with Danny Michael"

    Cheers for posting this. Danny was a wonderful host when I visited NYC and the Rent set (and thanks to Peter and co for the intro). As a complete sideball, when I clicked to watch it there was also beside it a marvellous Jim Bowen standup routine about Bullseye, a UK tv show from my youth (which I am enjoying more now on repeats). Cannot do a link for some reason but enjoy both !! Jez Adamson
  15. The "Best client/producer/agency quotes" thread

    Send me over there, Mike - I'll record his stream! And I've edited Japanese surround production tracks before ... maybe it's normal? (Chose best mono channel of the five if you're wondering). J Eric - now that's just inspired producing!
