  1. As others have said before: whatever works for you....personally I think it's just bad for your neck and spine
  2. https://schoeps.de/produkte/colette/mikrofonverstaerker/cmr.html This should work, shouldn't it? It lacks the gooseneck though.
  3. Still looks a bit messy, but works for me so far. The velcro on the top right holds my two nanoLockits and everything is connected to the Powercon plug.
  4. I use Shure Wireless Workbench. You can simply type in a postal code (and manual frequency exclusions) and it'll show you all the available frequencies. It's not for mobile devices though
  5. It's two channels via AES42 (Channel 1 is the SuperCMIT signal, channel 2 is the untreated signal), so if you have enough spare inputs I'd record both of them.
  6. Some molton mounted on a c-stand might help (rollmops) and should be set up quite fast. Apart from that, a superCMIT or a Cedar DNS might also help reduce the reverberation.
  7. The Sennheiser IEM EK G2/G3/G4 do work with a SK G2/G3/G4 transmitter as long as the frequencies match. (I've never used a G1 EK/SK, but I'll assume, that they'd also work)
  8. As for the portable lightweight cart: have a look at a züca cart. Once disassembled it has a really small footprint. Also you might want to pack a soldering iron, screwdrivers and a few backup cables just in case
  9. I've been on a shoot last year where a scene took place in a very small ship cabin. Any pole longer than 50-60cm would have been a problem in that space..so far this has been the only occasion where I really needed that pole. (I think it's an old vdB pole)
  10. My first thought would be to get a less bulky bag or to attach the receivers on the outer frame. That way you'll also gain space inside the bag. Depending on the kind of jobs you do on a regular basis you might want to ask yourself if you really need to care about the IR for syncing. Also some right angle TRS connectors seem to be a good idea :)
  11. A quick google search will guide you to a lot of shops with the DIN 1.0/2.3 plug ready to ship with a price of about 4€ per piece. ;) And it also reveals, that the plug has to be crimped so you need to get a crimp tool (unless you already have one).
  12. Interesting product though I'd be happy to see the output on top rather than on the bottom. Otherwise it could be a bit cumbersome while using it as an IEM.
  13. The 833 offers quite a lot for it's price and was never intended to replace any of the bigger recorders. It still can be paired with a CL-12 and a lot of MCU controllers which are a lot cheaper compared to what the CL16 will most likely cost. So I don't really see any problem with the lack of support for the CL16. 🤷‍♂️
  14. This might be the reason they have this "hidden" connector (at 5:20):
  15. Used it last year for two months in that configuration and had no issues.
  16. Today I finally received a package with a 3d-print of a sunhood for the Wisycom MCR42 that I designed a few days ago. Maybe some of you are interested to 3d-print it yourself or make changes on the actual desgin (https://www.tinkercad.com/things/gixHGct25vD). It simply clips onto the wider part of the MCR housing and it seems like it doesn't do any damage by applying too much pressure to the MCR42. So far it's only a prototype and is not intended to work with something like the superslot or any other rackmount (though it could be altered).
  17. Haven't done any MS on the 633, but does the odd pan pot alter the proportion between mid and side signal? In that case this should be the solution to the stereo width (or does it alter the position of the overall MS signal in the panorama instead?)
  18. Looks and sounds promising AND avoids most of the usual german actors (which is great). Damn it. Just switched to amazon prime
  19. I always use the dropdown menues in the take screen for the reaons you mentioned. Used the PFL quick naming only once and went back to the take menue =/ Even though it's not named "quick naming" it's fast enough for me.
  20. K-Tek and Orca both make great bags. I wouldn't recommend Kortwich bags though, since they tend to look horrible after some time and they use way too much velcro to hold things together. So opening them always comes with a loud noise. Is there any rental house nearby where you can simply check out the bags and see which fits your needs best?
  21. Only worked once with it. Tried to send a scratch track which looked good on the meters and sounded good on the headphone-out. But the sound that was recorded sounded awful, like it had a limiter that's been hit way too hard, even though it always sounded nice during monitoring. Weird experience...
  22. Colin Hart built one of these some time ago. At the end of his article you'll find a pdf with some more in depth information: http://hartfx.net/newtest/2010/03/131/ And the finished mic with some recordings: http://hartfx.net/newtest/2010/03/how-my-sound-snooper-turned-out/
