    I am the FOH engineer for the Army Field Band and spend most of my time touring with concert sound. I enjoy the occasional one off's I get to do with audio for video.

  1. I've been looking for something just like this. Anyone have a source?
  2. Wish I had seen that deal
  3. I have had good luck using the 4017 inside. This is a versatile mic. I agree with Julian above.
  4. Bottom line is we got lucky. But I was pretty happy about it! Thank goodness I didn't need to clear all of my channels......I am usually a 40 channel wireless show.
  5. Who says you can't clear 20 wireless channels in Time Square?
  6. So....let's talk about something of substance .....are they wired with Lectro or Zaxcom?
  7. I have a workbox at FOH where one of the drawers has a kurig permanently mounted and wired to a power con connector on the back of the box. I roll the box to FOH, plug it in, pull out the drawer, and wala....instant coffee. For the hotel room I carry a hand grinder and an Aeropress..... No addictions here.........
  8. I could use a new post studio.
  9. Who made the necklaces for Naked and Afraid? I've always been curious what mic is in there. Not that I watch the show that is.
  10. Thanks so much....I think I am going to give it shot.
  11. I have been considering getting a SuperSoftie for my CMIT5u but keep looking at these Windkillers by Bubblebee. I am wondering if anyone could compare them both in terms of weight and sound? I cannot find many posts on them.
  12. Just ordered two of my own after trying out a demo. They seem like really nice mics. The only complaint I have heard seemed to be related to the cable being noisier than the 4060, but I didn't really notice any real difference. I was going to order 4060's but went with the slim instead. Constantin? Rado? Any difference you notice with cables?
  13. Ok,,,,fair enough then. Thanks!
  14. A question for the gurus who know more than I. 1. A client sends me an OMF of a 30 second commercial and asks me to sweeten the audio and give him a mix. Not a problem....done this many times before. 2. He edited his mix in Premier and sent an OMF to me for audio work. I asked and received a reference video as well. I use ProTools. 3. One of his clips in the timeline was speeded up in Premier to account for some guy talking too slowly during filming. Nothing terrible and if he hadn't told me, I may not have known. 4. However...he included the original audio clip (sans video) and wanted me to use that audio instead of the one he speeded up, speed it up myself with my own stuff, and sync it back to the video timeline. This is where I am this a reasonable thing to ask? I am trying to figure out how I can get frame accurate sync by speeding up his original audio. Doesn't seem worth the effort, and I don't really know how I'd do it. Certainly even if he told me the percentage he used to compress time, it wouldn't correlate to anything in ProTools as the algorithms are different. Thoughts?
  15. Congrats! I remember my daughters when they were that young. It's an amazing time....the lack of sleep to me was the only negative thing. Well, besides the diapers.
