  1. Side note, after doing a lot of TA cables I've found I prefer the original Switchcraft TA3/TA5. I don't really like the REAN parts anymore, used to get stuck in plugs on my Maxx and the materials quality is just not as good. They melt easier, pins fall out easier etc. Maybe I bought a bad run but now I just pay more for the Switchcraft originals. Even some of the Switchcraft knockoffs are of lesser quality. For example Remote Audio used to sell some that had a soft rubber boot that you could choose to take off for large diameter cable. That's great but when you leave it on it almost always ends up tearing off on small diameter cable.
  2. Dear Licensee: Greetings from T Mobile....

    So when are all the TV transmitters going to clear out of 600? Do they have the same 3 year transition?
  3. DPA 4017 c vs b preamp

    Martin, I think you might be right the two preamps do not have identical specs.
  4. Lectro SRc field reports?

    Beats me.
  5. Finally a cheap and accurate Timecode slate?

    For small shoots that don’t need a slate then messing around with an iPad just for extra credit isn’t worth anyone’s time if you ask me. If the shoot actually needs a slate then you’re going to need a real TC slate. Try giving an iPad to a 2nd AC to mark up I think they’d push it off the cart on purpose! In my oppinion if you own a timecode recorder you also need to own a TC slate and probably a lockit or two. Though the slate is most important. My TS-3 sits on the shelf 90% of the year but I’m glad to have it when it’s needed.
  6. Lectro SRc field reports?

    Weird question but hang in there with me... Did you by chance have any G3 RECEIVERS switched off hanging off the side of your bag when you noticed these RF hits? I've found that having a powered-off G3 IEM receiver sitting next to hops transmitters wreaks havoc with my Lectro receivers. Will create spikes all across the block. When you remove the G3 receivers from the bag and get them a few feet away or even just turn them on all the troubles go away. Totally bizarre.
  7. Lectro SRc field reports?

    What else is running in your bag?
  8. Nice video Dave! Paul, does the 10T have an Ambient timecode generator or your own design? Will it hold when powered off just like other units?
  9. 2.4 GHz amp in bag

    EK300 are excellent “Comteks”. Shhh trying to keep the eBay prices down
  10. Timecode question

    Sounds like a good plan. Rejam everything at lunch to be sure. My other piece of advice is to keep in mind that 5-pin Lemo jacks are bi-directional but the cables are not necessarily so. For example with the wrong cable you might accidentally jam your 744 from the tentacle instead of the other way around. You’ll need to keep track of which Lemo to 3.5mm cable is which and they’ll need to be wired differently.
  11. New Follow Cart - JW

    Hi Jeff, I know this is an old thread just curious how your readytube follow Cart has held up over the years? Also, how did you attach the plate casters? Bolts directly through the frame tubes? Did you secure each caster with all four bolts or just three? Thanks! Derek
  12. PAID 5.2 Just Released

    Same here. Actually I’m still on capitan I think. Same intermittent crashes. Mostly when I’m entering line items on an invoice.
  13. Lectrosonics SMWB coming soon?

    They said no already because they are US made so the patent applies everywhere for Lectro. Also no 250mW due to design differences in wideband vs. narrowband. Something about physics.
  14. Boom Stand

    Cool, what’s the iPad for?
  15. Wireless "bursts" of volume?

    I had a similar noise burst hit in Chicago a couple months ago. Wireless had been working just fine, not one hit, solid RF, for hours and then bam PFFFFFPT right in the middle of a take. Didn’t happen again. Cant remember the block but it was likely 24 or 25.
