  1. Grant, the USB-C port can be easily powered by a PD power bank that supplies the correct voltage. If you only have access to a 14v source then best practice would be to purchase Hirose equipped battery sled that can accept 10-20v.

    Whiny mics

    I haven't personally experienced this happening to a 7 series recorder, but I have had this issue with an original, two channel Mixpre. Perhaps this explains your issue: https://www.sounddevices.com/oscillation-with-transformer-balanced-inputs/ Good luck with getting to the cause with your mics.
  3. Timebar has an editable text strip that defaults to current date.It has enough characters to add Date/Scene/Take/etc.
  4. You can reduce weight and size by removing the cable holder on the side.
  5. It weighs 250 grams, so I guess that is why they call it a "Bug" and not a "Turtle" 😀
  6. Not as romantic as a DIY solution, but this will do the job: https://www.radialeng.com/product/stagebug-sb5
  7. I enjoyed the interview very much. Thanks
  8. https://mymic.rycote.com/devices/ you can search for best fit here
  9. We have finally landed in "Used Car Lot" territory... "HURRY!!! Limited time offer! Tow, Push, Pull your smoking junker to the lot for a guaranteed trade in deal. Poor credit? No worries!"
  10. That puts your gear in the drop zone. Low velocity breathes and vocalizatiobs will drop quickly, possibly a perfect arc towards your mic and boom. Yuck
  11. A prolific Master has passed. One of my prized possessions is a signed copy of his biography. https://www.bbc.com/news/entertainment-arts-53777949 I had to chuckle when I saw this photo of a "BoomOp" at work.
  12. Watson Wu has recorded several car sounds for video games and has discussed his methods on his site and in blogs and interviews on several other sites. Start on his https://www.watsonwu.com/ site and explore from there.
  13. This may help answer some of the questions

    I agree that the picture shows it oriented the “wrong” way, but the holder can be easily removed from the clamp and reoriented the “correct” way, as you suggest. I have bought stage mic stands from well respected brands that have the boom arm oriented incorrectly, and always change to prevent the slow motion dive of a heavy mic.
