This is great!

Loving the PTTTTP!

Interested to know /see what the “headband mounted webbing” is, and what mics are used. 

Thanks for sharing. 

Cheers

Very cool and well planned out!  I had a blast mixing with the Muppets a few years back (for a music video) although you have a way more sophisticated setup than I did.

 

Any pictures of your cart pulling all this off?

Puppeteers wear custom headbands with loops for routing 2 mics and earbuds. One mic is a cheap ME-2 for the comms system. The other one's are DPA 4060 Cores and Sanken COS-11s for capturing the dialogue for edit and for the puppeteer's mix minuses.

 

Playback goes out via the LS-9 and routes wirelessly to the VOG Speaker and my cart. We can send it via Dante too.


No delay problems. We've been running this system for 8 months now.

 

I'll get a couple of pictures when I'm back to the studio Monday.

 

Cheers!

Thanks for the answers Chris! I soooo wish I was part of this complex piece of art and technology you have crafted. I would say I am jealous but jealousy is like handling a hot coal, only the jealous get burned. Ha!  Fantastic work and I wish you great success! - Big plus... I found something new to watch, thanks!
