  1. Show me your bag

    The one I was referring to was the one Rado was referring to, which was the bag Elior posted
  2. Show me your bag

    I think I just misread your post. It looked like you were saying that you use 6 boom mic tx... I think it looks pretty light.
  3. Show me your bag

    HM 1 - is that the plugon? Why six?
  4. Large blimp vs smaller blimp

    Dude, relax. You are jumping to conclusions and that rarely ends well. Thanks for teaching me deathcat word, I can sleep well now, knowing there is this guy who can't take a joke. And it is funny how this word has never come up here before. Or at least, I haven't read it. Anyway, glad I could learn at least something. Please, read the rest of my post, as you very clearly did not, because you jump to conclusions without any basis. I did help the guy, I told him size matters. To clarify my clumsily worded earlier response: at first they are not using a fur (oh sorry, deathcat) on either blimp, but then they put one on the Cinela, but not on the Cyclone. It even says so in the video. Perhaps you should actually watch the video you post a link to?
  5. Deva 24 seminar

    Knowing that a new piece of gear will/might/could be available in the near/far future rarely changes my buying decisions. I buy whatever is available that fills my needs at that time. But to be honest, the needs at that time also change with what's available. E.g. just a few weeks ago I thought I was fine with my wireless gear, now suddenly Audio Ltd release this new line, and suddenly I "need" new wireless. So the announcement of something new can cause me to want that, but I'll get frustrated if I can't have it soon-ish. To that end, I personally prefer the tactic of those companies that will not say anything until they are actually ready to ship
  6. Large blimp vs smaller blimp

    What's a deathcat? Sounds like something horrible out of a jungle... If you mean a fur, then yes they are using one on the Cinela, and then another one. But never on the Cyclone. Anyway, it's still a pointless comparison. Generally speaking: yes. Will you encounter winds strong enough where it will make a difference? Your choice. I was recently working in very strong winds and the only system that worked was a Rycote Stereo blimp (the one for the CMIT MS setup) with the sock and the fur. The mic was the DPA 4017c, so it was a really tiny mic in a really large blimp. I had also with me the small Cyclone and the Cinela long fur. But nothing was as good. But that is a rare occurrence for me, so usually I just use the small Cyclone without fur.
  7. Goes up to 25mW, but I agree that's surprisingly low. Maybe it's aimed at theatres or TV studios or whatever where they can have an antenna never more than a few meters away
  8. DPA 4061 + MKH50 compatibility

    I would love to see one of those phase charts...
  9. Cantar X3 Mini

    Ok, but how do get to the noise reduction and back into the recorder if you are already using all inputs? 10 inputs is only 2 more than I have now, so for me this is not really worth it - although I was considering it (hence me bringing back this topic)

    HD-25's have them on the right. Unfortunately, this does not seem to be standardized. Same with the jacks, Sound Devices alone have them sometimes left, sometimes right and sometimes even on top. I guess they get confused, because the headphone jacks looks like an input, but they are an output. At least they never put them at the back. Although, having said that, I wouldn't mind if the 788T had its second hp out somewhere at the back, instead of right next to the first one. That's because on my cart I have a mini jack cable going from the recorder to the CL-9, and it be way more convenient to have the connection at the back
  11. NEW: Audio Ltd - DDX1010

    Oh yes, I hope so too. The tx, to be honest, looks rather large. Maybe they could do a version without p48 and so it could be smaller. Does anyone know, can these slot-in receivers, be dropped into an Octopack as well? I believe Wisy can, so maybe these, too? If so, I think I would buy a set at first availability...
  12. DPA 4017B Vs CMIT 5U

    After praising the 4017 so much, I just wanted the add that the CMIT is also an awesome mic. The way it handles speech transients (not sure if that is the correct term), like T, D, K and also plosives, is unparalleled. They just sound silkier, smoother. I mean, we are talking miniscule differences, but that's how I hear them. Someone else may hear them differently
  13. Production Mix Structure

    That's not low budget film-making, that's film-making
  14. Safdie Brothers Talk About Audio on 'Good Time'

    Oh yes of course, Coles. I know them, just didn't know they were British.
  15. Deva 24 seminar

    To me, that makes perfect sense. I always thought it was highly logical to have on each device - always - inputs left, outputs right. In terms of signal flow that seems to make a lot of sense. Many many devices, in fact all I can think of, are organized like that. That includes gear where connections are at the back. Mixing desks are organized like that, too. Inputs left, outputs right. I hope we can keep it like that
