  1. Bag Cart

    I was recently injured earlier this year in a car accident (broke both legs, right wrist, sternum and ribs) and am trying to take it easy. I’m trying to build a relatively small foot print colapseable bag cart to not have to have my bag strapped to me all day. Yeaterday I was on a job (not using my gear) in a statium and the client had me carry around a fully loaded bag with a crappy Pertol Harness (664/CL-6 in an orca) with 4 411s and 2 Hops just to boom (unusable audio due to music from the statium.) I asked nicely why I can’t just go hardlined to camera (we had a wireless Hop and I gaurentee thatd be what they’d use). But he wanted the wav files???? Ok.... If if I was using my kit I could have easy accomplished this with a Boom, TRX743 RX200 on Camera and ERX for me to monitor. Or this could of been accomplished with a Boom and an H4N on my belt. For complete simplicity... I really like the simplicity and stability of this cart. But would love it if it would collapse. Lol Just wanted to see if anyone had any ideas.

    Is the 175mm windjammer. Work for a WS4?
  3. K-Tek BOOMBOX Treat Yo'self

    Anyone else using this?
  4. Looking Into Buying Zaxcom IFB

    I have an all Zaxcom rig (both Nomad 12 and Maxx, IFB200 and CL900) and do agree that the Zaxnet range is less than desirable without an 2.4ghz amp.
  5. Sony MDR 7506 coiled cable

    How do you keep your coiled cable headphones from becoming a tangled mess?
  6. Zaxnet Slate

    Anyone do any Mods or have any info of the long rumored Zaxnet slate? I have a TS3 and would love to put a ERX inside so it has Zaxnet jam ability. Thanks
  7. Just a rant

    I’m currently on a reality show for 5 weeks. Which decided they didn’t want to rent my gear and wouldn’t provide any information before Day 1. Turns out they have provided a 664, with 6 Lectro Wireless (in different blocks) and a CMIT5U in a Satchler bag that doesn’t have a strap, harness or handles. The bag is set up as heavily and bulky as possible.... We have 8-12 cast everyday and somehow they expect me to Boom the un miced talent... They ask for us to be a fly on the wall. I explained to them that their equipment is inadediquete to do the job properly and when asked for them to rent my gear or at the very least more Wireless and a CL-6 they declined... So All I can do is do my best and play musical mics all day. I agree “It is what it is...”
  8. Accountant in TX

    Hey, I’m in need of an accountant in Texas specifically Austin. Wanted to see if anyone had any referrals. Thank You
  9. Zaxcom TRXLA/LT case

    I'm interested to see what type of cases people use to protect LA and LT Transmitters while on talent. I seen a previous thread about this. But it looks like Amazon is sold out of the leather cellphone cases that were recomended.
  10. Remote Audio Hi-Q Batteries

    I love mine!
  11. Suggestions on compact support carts easy to fly with

    I have checked my Orca Cart before. I love the OrCart for support just not as an actual cart. But has some great features. Like a place to put your boom down and a table top workspace...
  12. Zaxcom Maxx AES out & Sony F5 not working

    I just got off a job with 2 F5s. I had 2 QRX100IFBs as Hops. I had to have the Hops powered up before camera for the cams to accept AES. Otherwise it says "AES not available in pro mode" or something. Powering down the the camera and back up allowed it to work with no issues.
  13. I am a production sound mixer. I live in Austin and work all around Texas. I am a member of the Local 484. I primarily do a lot of commerical/doc/reality work. But also do a fair amount of narrative work. I own a couple of all Zaxcom Rigs. I am looking to start making connections in LA, I'm interested in entertaining the possibility of moving to a busier market to work on larger projects. I'm willing to utility, boom or mix. I will be in LA September 7th-12th. If anyone would like to meet, I would love to meet some fellow mixers and grab a drink! If anyone is interested please email me! Thanks!

  14. External Power for QRX

    I found a thread on this but wanted to see if there are any new ways. I'm looking for a quick and light weight way to externally power a Zaxcom QRX. Thanks!
  15. ...any rumors about one mini zaxcom like SD mix pre?

    I agree, It makes no sense to have a built in Transmitter and a IFB100/200. The option that made the most sence to me was a max with a CL900. So I could have both the UHF Stereo Transmitter and a Zaxnet Transmitter in 1 unit... It would make more sence to have the on board transmitter be a 2 channel reciever. But with all that said the Maxx and the Camera Link are a great combo.
  16. Lost / Stolen Gear

    Awesome! Glad to hear it turned out somewhat OK!
  17. ZMT3 & PowerRoll

    Yup, I had an TRX3.5LT and it was funky and wouldn't transmit... I sent it in three time under warranty and was told the TRXLT3.5 were having issues and were to be discontinued.
  18. Equipment wishes for 2017

    Zaxcom Maxx with a built in 2 channel receiver instead of transmitter. And 8 AES in
  19. Purchasing 2 mics for film: 8060 w/MZF 8000 & MKH-50?

    Rent both mics and do a couple projects and buy what you like...
  20. Purchasing 2 mics for film: 8060 w/MZF 8000 & MKH-50?

    Remember "better sounding" is objective! I love my 8060 but also love my 416.
  21. Purchasing 2 mics for film: 8060 w/MZF 8000 & MKH-50?

    It sounds like you should go with the 416 and a 50. They are industry standards and are obviously a solid choice.
  22. Which Rycote Zeppelin? Navigating the maze...

    The WS3 with conbox works well for the 8060 with MZF and XLR Module.
  23. Which Rycote Zeppelin? Navigating the maze...

    I have a whole bunch of Rycote WS kits. I have the WS4 (for CMIT5U), WS3(for SPS200 and 8060), WS8 (for 8070), a AE Kit (for M/S setup), and a baby ball gag (for SPS200 and CMC641). Generally I also use super softies for basic things. I have the WS kits for harsher more extreme conditions. They all get used but not as much as the Super Softies. Maybe start there
