  1. I can not take credit of this but this is what i use for wires... This thread has a wealth of good tips.
  2. Working in lumberyard--- tons of birds nests. Of course during scout they were quiet........ And it being spring, at baby chick feeding time the chirps got really loud. Slapping pancakes worked for a bit but at a certain point the parents just got scared and pissed off so maybe the slapping of pancakes might have made things worse. It really only got much better between feedings.... or while the shooting crew was away. But with a large crew with generators and bright lights, the birds were just angry.
  3. Reload firmware and restart using factory settings. This happened to me... it took awhile to figure out but there were other anomalies as well. Limiters activating with fader closed - weird stuff.
  4. Breaking in Metris passenger- Driving it is a dream- visibility takes a little getting used to- plenty of space. Picked it up pre-owned with residual warranty. There are alot of deals- i think because it is not a soccer-mom car. To me it is a good replacement to eurovan- However- the seats are crazy heavy and inflexible. I can load in cart vertically thru the back and Magliner follow thru the side. Wide enough for EZ to store sideways. Needs some modifications to properly secure carts but doable.
  5. Started standing, then modified my PSC cart so that i can only see monitors clearly while sitting. My feet thank me. But i did like being able to see over the cart to see the set.. but i was probably too close to set already-- different problem...
  6. I second purcells "Dialogue editing for motion pictures: A guide to the invisible art. ". Really enlightening. However, strongly suggest the non E-book version. Some of diagrams and screen shots are too hard to see on a tablet....
  7. Also part of update- Very happy about this. Seems like small thing but it is not High-Pass Filter now returns to last used value when toggled on and off rather than always reset to 150Hz.
  8. Stelladats ran insanely hot. So I never had issue with humidity.... i had other things to worry about....
  9. provided a wealth of info about this format and was resource to find sellers that would export units that were not entirely legal in the US. The page is still active today.
  10. Of course Mike- i was just saying that when things are going right or mostly right, sometimes it is good to recognize that fact. And not to be the dept of bad news.. Of course there are times when we have to stand our ground- hate me now, hate me later..... etc..
  11. In one video podcast i heard words of wisdom that stuck with me... Paraphrased ... Say something good about the sound you are recording- IE do not always complain or talk about all the things that are bad... I think it was Mark Weingarten... Matt Prices podcast? it resonated with me...
  12. Great! Thank you for the answer!
  13. I have a beetle. But no longer have 788t. The bts does a lot and Tonmeister is a capable system. It connects quickly and consistently. Creates very clean reports. It does take awhile to get used to but it is a complete control system for 788t. It does not have metering ... I moved away from using it as I went to a 6 series recorder...
  14. I think i got my answer from the F8/F4 group on facebook. It looks like the TC is not readable by widget for MP3 files... Anybody want to send me a test file that i try on widget? Recorded on a F8 or F4..
  15. Of course your right phil,. I forgot that as amazing wave agent is, it does not read MP3s. My transcription service happily uses widget.
