    Please Post SIlly Things

    You asked for silly... I've just released the first few episodes of my new podcast on iTunes. It's very silly, a bit like Dr. Demento on mild hallucinogens. https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/random/id1450102098 Enjoy!

    2018 New Lav mounting tools

    I've had pretty good luck with the Ursa mini mounts. Has anyone tried the Bubblebee lav concealer or the Hide-A-Mic B Flex yet? I'm interested in hearing some reviews on those.
  3. Does anyone know if there's an option in Premiere to view poly file metadata, most importantly, track names? I I spent half of yesterday doing a bunch of scouring on the interwebs trying to help out an editor that isn't familiar with poly files (because I'm a nice guy) and it looks like there is not.... I have FCP and the track names that I add in to my SD 633 are plain as day. See screenshot below: Thanks!

    Proper Lav Mic Techniques

    Seeing as how most of you have only been doing this for twenty years or so, I thought I'd share one of my helpful tutorials. You're welcome!

    Sanken Cs-M1 new mike

    Has anyone here had a chance to listen to one (in person) yet? If so, what are your thoughts?

    Audix SCX1 HC and Sennheiser MKH 416 Audio Sample.

    Hi Eric. The mics were approximately 18" from my pie-hole. You can definitely hear the difference when listening on headphones. The Audix doesn't have the "bite" that the 416 does, but for the money, it sounds pretty good to me. I think it may work nicely on some of the more edgy sounding voices? For $300 used on Ebay, I couldn't pass it up. Don't tell my wife....
  9. Just to give you a sense of the difference in sound between the Audix SCX1 with hypercardioid capsule and the Sennheiser MKH 416. Recorded on a Sound Devices 633 in the same room, at the same distance and with the same gain settings. No additional processing has been done to the audio. I know, it's like comparing apples and oranges, but I thought it may be useful to someone? Listen to the audio sample on Soundcloud here!

    Sound Devices Mix Pre-3 and Mix Pre-6

    I'm wondering if a cable like this would work with a bds (using NP1's) to power one of the mix pres for bag work?

    Any Exciting New Lavs?

    The only thing that I'd like to change about it is the price... Thanks! I'll need to try the slim. I like the idea of the adapter system.

    Any Exciting New Lavs?

    Is there anything new in the world of lav mics that I should know about? I've had a hard time finding anything that I like better than the cos-11 (at least for my particular use).

    Repair MKH 416 P48

    Hello all, First off, I've done quite a bit of searching on these boards and have not come up with any definitive answers, so... Does anyone know of a reputable place where I might send an MKH 416 P48 for repair (besides Sennheiser)? This particular mic seems to be lacking a bit in the lower end and also has quite a bit of self noise. Thanks! Dave
