  1. Indeed - seriously considering it. It’s the night before and I have not had a single conversation with the producer about what I’m doing. I do not enjoy cancelling and do not want to leave a crew without a sound guy but this is unacceptable.
  2. Thanks, the F8 certainly does have some indiosyncrosies! So you reccommend I take just some standard mono trs jack to trs jack cables? Or XLR to trs?
  3. I have just received a very vague call sheet for a shoot i’m on tomorrow. It’s a nightclub with 6 performers - I reached out to the associate producer and explained I was a little confused as to what I will actually be doing and was told I may just be recording the performances from the house AV (or desk, I do not know!). I am a little frustrated about the complete lack of communication up until this point. Anyway, I expect this would be a case of recording direct outs from the desk/system - or is there something more that I’m perhaps missing? Should I ask for line up tone from the Del in order to calibrate my recorder (zoom F8) or just match meters? I apologise if this sounds very amateur but this is my first gig dealing with house AV and it hasn’t been sprung on me! Many thanks.
  4. Hi guys, ive recently purchased an SRc and SMQV transmitters, and am thinking of the best way to transport them. I mainly do bag work and at the moment and when flying I just put my loaded OR32 bag and all other gear into my Peli 1620. I’m wondering if I should have my lecro wireless stuff in another smaller pelican inside. My Sennh G3 (which I use just for wireless scratch) has its own box so perhaps I should be looking after my lectros in a similar way! Would love to hear who other transport their SRc, weather you leave it in the bag or have a seperate case/bag for them. Thanks!
  5. Thank you for all your help guys, really appreciate it. It actually wasn’t from B&H! Am I right in thinking that if I remove the resistor completely, and attach the white wire straight to pin 5, it will be the correct (and non universal) servo bias wiring?
  6. So, a little update for those who care - according to the markings the resistor is 10k (instead of the recommended 1k), which I assume is the issue!
  7. That would make sense - is the resistor thebonku thing that makes it ‘universal’?
  8. Thanks, it does seem to be. This is so odd. So I have the lav in mid chest position, and when speaking at normal conversation volume, with a Tx audio level of 40(!) I only occasionally light the -20 led green. When I shout I’ll light the -10 green. I really have to go crazy to get them to go red and just hit the limiter (which is fulll modulation and optimum gain structure correct?) Having the Tx audio level at anything less doesn’t even light the LEDs at all. Am I missing something on my Tx?
  9. I had exposed the connecter and have found the following. Could anyone perhaps tell me if this is correct? Pin 1 -white (audio?) to a resistor, and another wire I think is the shield pin 2 - 4 jump pin 3 - black (bias?) this seems to match up with fig 5 in lectrosonics wiring diagrams.
  10. Indeed, and even though my mic does not have the ‘red’ band - the model number written on the box does correspond to Sankens reduced sensitivity model number as seen I this picture. I realise thanks to Larry that UNLE is universal lectrosoncis, but also I’ve noticed on the Internet that the code only appears on Sanken models with reduced sensitivity.
  11. Thanks Larry - that makes a lot of sense. Strange thing is when i google the Sanken model number with the UNLE suffix, it seems to mostly bring up he reduced sensitivity versions. I can’t for the life of me think what else could be causing the low gain on the Tx. Really do have to shout in order to light up the -10 led and audio level is on 44! On further research, the Sanken product codes for the different wiring seem to be as follows: Lectro TA5F normal sensitivitiy: SAN-11DWNBKSMLE (is this the servo wiring?) Lectro TA5F Reduced sensitivity: SAN-11DWRBKUNLE (The code on the mics I have been supplied) Sennheiser LEMO normal sensitivity: SAN-11DANBSE Sure TA4F normal sensitivity: SAN-11DANGYT4SH Seems that I may have the red dot version?
  12. Just to be clear, I didn’t wire these (I’m terrible at soldering!) - I bought them terminated for Lectro from the store. I guess I should just return them. EDIT: I have noticed TA5F - UNLE written onto both boxes, UNLE seems to correspond to the reduced sensitivity version serial on B&H. If i’m correct I think they may have sent my the incorrect microphones!
  13. Thanks for all your input guys, I’m also of the opinion it’s an error in wiring. I just can’t quite believe both mics have exactly the same issue, although as they are both from the same supplier maybe I can. So frustrating.
  14. Hi all, I just purchased 2 more COS11D mics, this time wired for my recently purchased lectrosoncis SMVQ transmitters. I chose the universal wiring option as I may need to use them with older lectro transmitters. However I’m experiencing some issues with transmitter volume/sensitivity when attempting to set up the optimum gain structure. In order to ‘tickle’ the -10 led I have to have the transmitter gain at maximum (44) and shout very very loudly. In fact, relatively normal interview talking volume rarely hits the green of -10. Is this because I should have perhaps opted for the servo wiring? Or some other issue? I definitely do not have the red dot versions (unless something untoward has happened) so am confused. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
  15. Thanks guys for al the help, I eventually went with the SRc, found a good deal with some used SMQVs. Really appreciate all your input and advice.
