  1. The bell of truth ringing. I shot my flag yesterday and blended it with dead soldiers in Gettysburg and a quote from Plato yesterday, "Only the dead have seen the end to war". My 1st amendment rights defended by many allow me to make the statement. I thank and honer them too. CrewC
  2. Not sure how technology adjusts to an individual. Seems like all things are built with fixed limitations, no? I know it's an age old tradition to bitch about the gear that manufactures build for the market but can you imagine the cost per unit if we could order custom builds from the vendors? CrewC
  3. Love Dan and this new album of his. Dig the Tiny Desk series too. CrewC
  4. NopeDotCom. Seems hardly an issue once it becomes second nature (like all systems do after awhile). CrewC
  5. I've got a Lectro PDR. Works great for a number of things I used it for. CrewC
  6. Philip, that's the same thoughts and ideas RVD and I talked about decades ago. Wish it was a pathway to a creative endeavor. Oh well, I can't complain, only dream. CrewC
  7. Yeah. Basically they don't know what and why we do what we do in our jobs, and we don't know what they do or even who they are. Weird workflow but it seems to work better in practice than on paper. CrewC
  8. True. And i do. Easyier to do in L A commercials than TV or Film but I've... let's say grown to see the value of that workflow $$$. Still not the right way in at least 50% of the scenes I record. CrewC
  9. Got around to listening to this today. It was ok. Just shows no one knows anything in our biz. CrewC
  10. Interesting comments. Can't wait to hear the podcast. Sounds like a lot of complaining about iso tracks. Odd. It's my understanding iso's are post driven/requested/demanded thing. I know "wire em all" is an AD thing and I have zero issue telling a AD no. Hard to argue with a producer who gets a chain email from post wanting an explanation why we didn't wire em all. CrewC
  11. Indeed a worthy cause to help a brother out in his time of need. Thanks for the info Jeff. CrewC
  12. In the old days the 415's were susceptible to high frequency distortion (Like keys jingling) and could be problematic. Hard to really say in your case as there were so many variables possible. You have the recording to post so we could hear the issue? A schoeps 41 is my mic of choice in most situations and would of been in this one as well. CrewC
  13. This has been my experience as well. I set it up and roll it in the background though, seldom looking at it during a shoot. CrewC
  14. Happy Birthday J W. Proud to have you as my friend, as a teacher, and a sly jokester of the highest order. Cheers amigo. CrewC
  15. Not that it matters much what I think, but if I owned a company, I'd rather release a new product when the smoke has cleared and the visibility is at it's best, that seems to me to exclude NAB as a launch platform. Like J B, I've used various systems and whatever the shortcomings of the end recording, they were most likely mine and not the systems. It's funny to me that I used my 442 mixer yesterday to send my ProTools feed to my speakers and or earwigs on a playback record gig and we had 6 Lectro wireless mics and a CMIT mini from Schoeps in the mix and recorded it all on the 688/CL-12. Meanwhile, across town my son Case was using a PSC Solice front ending a MixPre10 with a combo of Lectro 411's and Srb's. In yet another part of town my brother Moe was using a Sonosax mixer front ending his Deva Fusion and using Audio Ltd radios. What was the common denominator? Aside from being Chamberlains? They were the tools we used on the day. Big fan of all the tools available to us hard working;~) Sound People. CrewC
  16. Any pix of it on the MixPre? CrewC
  17. Fantastic? Better than a Comtek perhaps, but not that much to my old ears. Been doing commercials for decades and as much as I think Comteks sound like (whatever), no one else has ever complained. I mean big name directors wear em like all who need them. Everyone seems to know it's reference, not final product. + one to all stated above. CrewC
  18. + 1 100% But if you do, know that this serves no-one well other than these people hiring. CrewC
  19. I'd like to thank Mr Fisher, aka Larry for his generous contributions to this and other sites. Very informative. CrewC
  20. Congrats to Mark and his crew for a job well done. CrewC
  21. Just want to give a shout out to Peter Verrando who upgraded my 3 t powered Schoeps mk41 to 48v. Very happy with his work and rapid turn around. Thanks Pete. CrewC
  22. Sadly I never met him, only admired his fine work. May he Rest In Peace. CrewC
