  1. DIY camera snake?

    I'm starting to think I should make a multi-cable camera snake for convenience's sake. I'm running a 633, occasionally people will want double-system or even single-system on camera, and I might have to go wired. Currently, I've been using separate 10m XLRs and checking the return on headphones before we roll, but I'm thinking things could be easier. I'd like to make a camera snake with 2 XLRs, a 3.5mm TRS return cable and perhaps time code on BNC. What would be an appropriate length and how could I manage to bundle the cables? I'm probably looking at cables of different diameters. I'm thinking I'd like to have access to the individual cables as well if necessary for maintenance. Zipties could be good, maybe, if I cut the ends flush?
  2. Hi all, Did a search for "soldering" but didn't find a recommendation for a basic soldering gun/iron kit for a novice repair. I've got an ever growing pile of good cables that I'd love to fix - mainly 1/4 " guitar cords and XLR mic cables. Is there a good soldering kit that you'd recommend? In the meantime, back to the Youtube videos to learn more :-)) Thanks for your kind advice. Keep well, Dave
  3. Red Epic Audio

    Anyone have problems with the mini jack input to the Red Epic? I've heard it to be unreliable.
  4. Hi All, Would anyone know of any sources for assorted bag-oriented custom audio cables in Toronto or Hamilton, Ontario, Canada? (In addition to Trew Audio and Audio Services). Thanks for any tips.... much appreciated. Have a great day. Cheers, Dave

    I might try this...
  6. To snake or not to snake?

    I'd be interested to see how many of you have ceased carrying a lengthy snake attached to your bag, to make your kit a little lighter and more compact. I know I used to have one always attached in the event of a major catastrophe befalling the hops, so I could quickly plug in. Worth doing as a fail-safe, or, lighten your load and trust the technology?
  7. Audio Resources

    I have begun a compilation of professional audio equipment suppliers as a general resource. It's an incomplete resource as of today (August 20, 2012) but there is room to grow. I have listed Gotham Audio and Pro-Sound in the East, Trew Audio in the Central region, Trew (again) in Canada and The Audio Department, Trew/Coffey and Location Sound in the West. There are other candidates for inclusion, like Mary Atias (ATS Communications) in Maryland and Vark Audio, also in Maryland, and, no doubt, some others. I held off in this initial attempt at a list since I think there should be some ground rules for inclusion and I didn't want to assume the responsibility for doing all the vetting. And, I think that participants in other countries should help to expand the list to Europe and Australia and the Far East. To be on the list, I believe that the resource should be a full-service shop. It should be an authorized dealer for most of the primary equipment used by location audio professionals. That's an ever-evolving list but would certainly include Lectrosonics, Sound Devices, Zaxcom, Sennheiser, Schoeps, Neumann, Rode, Sanken, Aaton, Portabrace, Petrol and others of that ilk. No shop will have every brand, of course, but a full service shop ought to have many lines to offer and compare. Part of being a full-service shop is offering a range of services. So, it should offer not just sales but also repairs, rentals, custom cable fabrication and related services. All of the facilities in this list provide all those services, have knowledgeable sales people and equipment specialists and can provide comprehensive assistance to anyone seeking to purchase or upgrade a recording system. I posted here, rather than in the equipment section, because I regard this as a general resource, not simply about equipment. It's my thinking that this thread should be "frozen" so that it is readily available and so new visitors to the site, seeking general advice, may be easily directed. David The first draft of the list follows in a separate post.
  8. What's In Your Adapter Kit?

    I've been buying stuff and fluffing up my toolbox with the usual barrels, adapters, cables and connectors. Any secret weapons we should all know about for typical or atypical situations that you're finally ready to talk about? Any 'once in a lifetime' war stories are welcome.
