  1. When Production doesn’t rent your kit

  2. Signing out comteks

    Signing out I agree does not work. I use, successfully TrakR which is a small wifi blue tooth tracking device about the size of a large coin . Blue tooth narrows the search down to an area the size of a room, a beep function activated from my iPhone pinpoints the device. And when the unit leaves the original area there is a global crowd based search function: every owner of every unit can help anonymously search for a lost unit, world wide .

  7. DPA 4061 + MKH50 compatibility

    As a general statement their are two terms phases often confused as one: Audio phasing which happens when the audio from two separate sources ( microphones) are combined as one and electrical phasing where two electrical signals ( representing the audio signal) are combined as one . There is also degrees of audio phasing all other values being equal occurring where more than one microphone is used in a mix variable to the distance from the source sound and the physical distance to each microphone. No two microphones are in the exact physical location, sometimes inches sometimes feet apart . The effect can be subtle or extreme and is always changing variable as the actors wearing radio mics move in relation to EACHOTHER and the boom mics Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
