  1. 17 page walk and talk, not as dense as some of those - we were on a tracking vehicle, boom op had beta boom easyrig
  2. I've tried with 4098s a few times but the cubs always sounded better - the 4098s were very susceptible to noise from the car, less so when I used them without the cable, but still touchy
  3. I did a bunch of publicity videos for this - There wont be much of the original footage in the wild yet as it was in the vault until not long ago. Most of the audio is from mono 1/4 tape running at 15 ips used by the film crew with some of it on 8 track from the studio. There was 4x the audio as they just left the recorders running over the 22 days they were shooting - cameras were on/off a lot In plenty of places conversations were drowned out by cranked up amps ( on purpose and unintentionally ) - the Sound dept wrote ML software to split out everything, so much of it, especially the intimate conversations were not at all audible originally. There is a video showing comparison but not sure where this is available, it was shown to a bunch of press It's an pretty amazing watch hey
  4. Rubber monkey in New Zealand has a new one. Check their website
  5. Ive got a CS3e - picks it out but I rarely enjoy the sound of it - the cs-m1 sounds much nicer in this video to me
  6. I would hope not. 2.4 is becoming a swamp on set with all the other depts running gear on it
  7. Yep, considerably better - to the point where Im happy to go wireless boom all the time
  8. Not 100% if it’s the question but using MM into HMA and a straight HM on the daily - difference is night and day
  9. While we’re here. I need a new mount for my 8050, older cinela seems bent out of shape, not good at all Recommends?
  10. That sounds awesome but will last exactly around 15-30 seconds from switching it on on a set running wireless camera and lighting
  11. Don’t go Zax until you’ve done at least a few gigs with a borrowed / rented one
  12. Hi John 1st priority was sorting as much leakage as possible, taming the room comes next. PA is QSC K12s left and right and a KS118 sub Doing some Room acoustics engineering would be ideal, initial queries showed it to be too expensive - they’re working with a budget of a couple grand - this is a smallish but popular centre run by volunteers that mostly runs in the red. Do you have access to acoustic design software or point me to where to access it ? Ill go and measure It up if so regards
  13. Thank you both. Yes helping to affirm current plan - clarify couple things Thanks John. Yes diffusion and trapping is stage 2. This is rough design I did - scale is bit out
  14. Thanks Peter Yes, it all needs to be removable on the daily To clarify on my post - I’m trying to optimise what we’ve got - cheers
  15. I’m helping out some friends that have a worship space - They recently converted the big rear room into a yoga studio / devotional music space which gets loud - There used to be a big shrine type arrangement blocking the rear windows but that has moved and the neighbours are complaining. we need to build some plugs to go into the 2 large window cavities. They can be 200mm deep ( not ideal ) but this also will make them more manageable. The plan is 3 plugs - 1200mm wide by 1200 high that fit in each window space . I’m looking for advice on the composition Currently looking at ( with materials to hand ) From inside room to window. 18mm ply to 70mm Audex foam Then airgap then foam then another layer ply, to make them 200mm deep, and boxing around outside to hold together. Do folk think this is best layering for sound proofing? Was considering long thin slots in front ply to help act as traps / diffusers. Any opinions on whether slots would compromise proofing over benefits it may provide? thanks for your time and help will also be building baffles and getting some carpet but the plugs are needed asap there is a pretty limited budget but some handy folk there JAS
  16. Bide your time. Most holographic pres’ I’ve ever heard
  17. Uncle Google and auntie jwsound aren’t coughing up the answer Ive a Deva IV with updated board - anyone know if this means it has timecode on the hirose 10 pin ( as does fusion ). Cheers and thanks in advance JAS
  18. I recently wired 3-4 people during training for periods on a boxing doco, they wore singlets for all the training. I used mm400s in a padded belt, pack on side with b6S with k tape - Depending on the fabric/sweat levels. they stayed on ok or were hopeless and fell off. Need a few tape options/colours. Some visual signs were acceptable to the director but once on they weren’t too bad at all ( unless the Lav fell off ) If I do it again I’ll either get mic bras or stitch the mics in / stitch a little pouch and probably use a different Lav maybe b3 The wires definitely got a bunch or stuff I’d never have got on the boom, with 2 shooters on zooms. The boxing gyms were full of bright lights and mirrors presenting booms their own set of issues as well.
  19. Have had a bit of a look but can’t find clear answer - Can anyone advise whether these older units with the UDM power and rf distro supply power for active antennae - appreciation in advance
  20. Thanks for This. Had to knock one up quickly for shoot last couple of days when the camera didn’t show up with an adaptor c@ble
  21. So in summery, based on reading the replies - ‘neverclip’ doesn’t actually do that - It’s a tool that when used correctly ( which exactly how seems to be difficult to explain ) can help prevent clipping. Thus recordists with this facility, expect it to prevent clipping, run hot levels, and what you’re hearin’ is good old fashioned distortion from limiters. I presume this also because I went thru the same thing, and instead use gain staging ( and Sonosax limiters ) regards

    I was measuring cicadas nearing 90dB with a sound metering app earlier this year - some long days - whole feature at 1 location, historic house - the constant din was draining all the crew - The script was rewritten to try deal with the noise - it’s not finished yet so not sure of outcome post has best cicada atmos ever Soundfield thru a Sonosax sxst8
