    Hello, Here some informations about the control surface: https://www.facebook.com/sonosax/posts/1724824807609533
  3. These are great. There’s never any real estate left on cameras for sound gear these days.
  4. Nice Jordan, I love the entrepreneurial spirit. Wishing you much success!
  5. Hey Philip! Thanks so so much for your interest! Yes indeedie! On the aluminum Ecto Plates all the holes are threaded. On the 2x4 you've got 26x female threaded 1/4-20 holes (9mm on center "Red" spacing), 4x 1/4" pass-through channels, and one center 3/8-16 hole (with Arri-style anti-rotation pin receivers). On the 3x3 it's a slightly different layout...34x 1/4-20 holes, 2x pass-through channels, and the same center threaded 3/8-16 hole (w/ pin holes). I love the idea of using a nano clamp! It would be totally easy to bolt an Ecto Plate directly to one of those clamps to add functionality. Also keep in mind that on the carbon fiber plates you've got two additional female threaded 1/4-20 holes built into the mounting block. This allows you to place the plate on the end of a clamp or noga arm and open up the kind of options you're talking about. So psyched to hear you're into the designs. Hope to see you're pre order in my inbox soon! best, Jordan

    Gear Appraisal

    Text me, let's talk. I did something similar for my current company.

    How did they capture this audio? [BBC 1979]

    It seems like they are definitely recording a separate feed of the wireless phone, don't you think? Those hard wave blips in the blooper scene wouldn't be picked up that way via microphone. The hallway walk n talk sounds like a boom to me. At 0:50 it sounds like what could be wireless RF clicking due to reception loss after he gets in the car (in the case that they weren't overdubbing his audio). Though, I'm not familiar with older wireless systems and don't know what typical dropouts sounded like. Overall the audio is very consistent, especially at the end. The hardest scenes for me to figure out are the book shelf filing bit and near the end when is walking up the path facing camera. We can hear his audio isn't 'brought up' until a couple seconds in. ie. 4:34 "the only..." To me it sounds like a boom lacking presence, before fading up the lav. It doesn't seem like the lav mic is hidden in the phone because of the way he is waving it around during the above shot^ (4:30). My 2 cents... Cool clip though.

    That‘s the quirk of the polar pattern. Lots of other mics have that same quirk, too.

    😂😂😂 He's ready for a stereo rig!
  11. Way cool. Are all those holes in the metal plates threaded? If so, I'm in! I've made several plates like this for myself but yours are much nicer. One suggestion: a version with a NanoClamp or similar rubber-jacket-jaw-grabber device instead of the simple bolt. I often end up using the crappy plates I made for myself this way, grabbing lens-rails, pan handles or top handles etc...

    Wisycom w/ Micplexer 2 + SNA600a?

    Thanks, Frido. I meant interference. I was just curious if this was a popular combo that people had used...
  14. Hello Lovely JWsound community! My name is Jordan Levie and, in addition to being a local NYC camera assistant, I am the owner and operator of backpackrig.com a small upstart camera support accessories company. We started with a backpack rig for handheld shooting, but just this week we've released a new accessory mounting product that I think will be very appealing to the cinema sound department. It's called ECTO PLATE: a simple, super lightweight plate with retractable/removable Arri-style anti-twist pins. Check out all the details here: https://www.backpackrig.com/ectoplate/ AVAILABLE FOR PRE-ORDER NOW! Ecto Plate is available in 2"x4" and 3"x3", and offers an easy way to quickly and cleanly add just a few inches of precious flat mounting space to your build. Perfect for: Timecode boxes Audio Receivers Cinetape Readouts Wireless HD Transmitters Made from carbon fiber and aircraft-grade aluminum, Ecto Plate is lightweight but sturdy. Retractable/removable Arri-style anti-rotation pins allow quick and secure mounting that won't sag or wiggle loose. Just back out the captive pins with a standard allen wrench and Ecto Plate mounts flush on any top handle, cage, or cheese-plate. Ecto Plate CF comes with 3/8-16 (captive) and 1/4-20 mounting screws as well as two female 1/4-20 holes. Bolt your plate directly to the side back or top of the camera when mounting a small accessory box, or get creative and put Ecto Plate on the end of an Noga/isralie/magic arm for a multitude of other uses. Ecto Plate AL also has both 3/8-16 (captive) and 1/4-20 mounting screws plus a bevy of 1/4-20 holes, 3/8-16 center hole (with Arri anti-rotation pin receivers), and several 1/4" pass-through channels. Hard mount directly to the plate or cover with Velcro and attach your AKS that way! Available currently in five different flavors, rest assured there's an Ecto Plate perfect for your application and budget!

    Advice for a novice

  16. That tumbleweed is a faint speck, way off in the distance. Best Regards, Larry Fisher Hi Constantin, In the US, some of the new block was already dedicated to live production broadcast users and other remote station control (STL) transmissions. The FCC merely (!) allowed part 74 wireless mic users to use the new frequencies for TV and film production with relaxed rules. This probably won't happen in Europe. Best Regards, Larry Fisher
  17. Are boards going to be made for 411s' and 401s'?
  18. Here in Europe most of the 900 band seems to be occupied by the GSM-900 network. Is that not the same in the US? Or did they have to vacate that at some point? Or does this mean that this new 941 gear is not going to make it across to Europe?
  19. In Pro Tools when you import audio you have the choice of just putting it into the region list or to move it straight to a new track. Maybe here something similar is happening in Avid? If it could be as simple as that... in any case, Pindrop is definitely right

    Deity Microphones going Wireless

    Some interesting Quotes on the new Wireless, why they choose 2.4 ghz and why current 2.4 offerings are not working properly: https://wavreport.com/2018/06/17/this-week-in-sound-8/
  21. Of course the location sound mixer is entirely responsible for bugs in Avid software, and should be interrogated and blamed at the earliest opportunity......
  22. Great! Looking forward for more episodes!

    Nagra Stories Sound-men won’t ever tell

    I watched the prices of 1970. The price of the SNS/SNN is not very high. This is several times less than IV-S and 4.2!
  24. Thnx for your replies. The 788t ist set to poly.wav. Anyhow you end up with a file containing a single track, either by arming only one track or route only sources to one armed track. I talked to post again. Apparently, whenever a mono clip is added to the timeline behind another mono clip, the behaviour occurs, if the clips where recorded by the mentioned colleague (or his settings). They do not have to be recorded consecutively. The effect looks like this: https://pastebin.com/cSP5P64S

    This could be me & my foldup cart...

    Also happened are some extenders for the rear uprights of the Foldup. There will be 2 types. 1 goes over the uprights @ 32mm square and converts to a 25mm square that the lift off shelf goes over. 2 goes inside the uprights @ 19mm or 18.5 mm square and converts to a 25mm square that the lift off shelf goes over. I myself prefer the inner one as they look a bit more tidy... Have less play in the connection. But that's a personal opinion. If you were to have any doubts about the security of the connection, you would be advised to put a bolt through the extender to the upright. The inner one struck an issue. In the later Foldup uprights (from 130 onwards) I discovered that the inner width would take a 19mm square tube. All good. However pre 130, the inner width was less and the 19mm tube got jammed. So at the moment I am sourcing some 18.5mm square, machined Wearex. (what they use on conveyer belts) In the pictures you will see a couple I ground down myself (roughly) with the angle grinder. They will sell for AU$75 a pair.
