  1. Anyone using this adapter for use with Lectro HMa that can give a quick review? Just weighing options re: mounting a transmitter top vs. bottom. Would rather not have to buy a new pole entirely to make this work. Was hoping the K-TEK squid would work at the base but it's not big enough to wrap around the pole bottom and HMa AW
  2. @DSatz thanks for the detailed reply. Update: I wasn’t crazy. I had someone at the local shop replicate the problem with me, and sent it back in for repair for a second time. It was highly unlikely that the 48v supplied was the problem as we used multiple preamps to test. This time the sennheiser technician heard the problem and repaired it. He wasn’t on his lunch break. I’m afraid I didn’t ask for their detailed repair procedure in the end... I just needed to get back to work! cheers adam
  3. Does the automix feature on the F8 work when you're in standby, or do you have to be in record mode? I don't think I can hear it working at all, but I wasn't sure if that was be cause it's so subtle (some adjustment parameters sure would be nice), or because it doesn't run if you're not recording. I'm mixing live to broadcast in this case. Did I mention that the tiny sharp faders on this thing are terrible? AW
  4. I have a small order of Boomhangers here in Toronto. Shoot me a message or email if you'd like one, while supplies last. $30 CAD.
  5. I bought a KTEK squid today thinking that I could use it to hold a transmitter at the base of my boom. Wrong! It's not big enough! Looks like it's designed only to wrap around the diameter of the top of the pole (or a bike handlebar).
  6. Sennheiser returned it to me but I won’t have a chance to test again for a couple of weeks. Thanks everyone for the notes.
  7. Never had a problem with another mic. It’s plugged in to a 633... So weird!
  8. Hey friends. Sent my KM185 in for repair because it was squealing like this. See attached. They sent it it back saying they couldn’t replicate the problem. I was having no problem that day on set though! Humidity or weird RF? This unit was supposedly manufactured after the latest revision but it’s the only things I can think that would be intermittent.

  9. Hey! Does anyone know what the screwdriver gauges/sizes are for the Lectrosonics "tweaker" screwdriver? @karlw? Thanks! Adam

    Rode Ntg3

    @JayKay I recorded the same source simultaneously into Pro Tools using an Arturia Audiofuse, set at the same level, and used the gain plugin to measure the difference in the recorded file. Not super scientific and I'm probably not testing "sensitivity" at all. Just wanted to measure the difference in output and it's pretty significant. I guess I'll need another NTG3 to see if there's anything wrong with mine. Or another 416!

    Rode Ntg3

    Just doing a bit of shotgun troubleshooting here: If you A/B the NTG-3 with the 416, what's the difference in gain? I did a little test of my own and found the NTG3 to be about 9.7 dB hotter than the 416. I expected them to be a lot closer in sensitivity. Normal? Adam
  12. @lindabarzini In terms of wireless performance or range I suspect the LR and SRc will be very similar for you. There are Lectrosonics experts around these parts who might chime in on the technicalities... Anyway both are great products. But if you need two channels directly into the camera the LT's won't be very fun, unless you have a lot of free space and eyes in two places at once. SRc is the way to go. With an L-type battery sled or DC power. You probably own compatible batteries already if you're a camera person. If you can get away with 1 receiver channel on camera, different story. If you ask me the interface is actually nicer on a single LR, bigger screen, buttons, AA power option. Good luck. Adam
  13. Anyone else have a fav wireless boom setup? Transmitter on top or bottom?? cheers Adam
  14. Proof that this company takes your ideas seriously. Not sure if I was the only one, but I requested the "cue marker" feature in September of 2015. Happy to see it come to life. Thanks Sound Devices! Adam
