  1. yes, it sounds good and even registers the battery telemetry. It was not with one of the new 54's but was a new 52. I was using the Sennheiser 5212 II.
  2. I just finished a movie with 6 models in Bikini's. I had no control over mic placement because they did not want me, a male, to touch them. Needless to say i had some clothing rub. Will Cedar help with clothing rub. We also shot in a hot tub and at a water fall.

    MTB40S or P for boom work? I have been demoing the B40s cube for two weeks on a movie and all is well until last night. It seems the battery tabs have recessed/bent back a bit and it turns off intermittently. Can I just pull the tab back a bit? The door seems fine. Any suggestions on power settings, that seems to affect the run times a lot. I am getting about 5 hours on a set of Energizer Lithium's.
  4. Hello Trey, I live in El Reno, Oklahoma. What city do you live?
  5. I bought Clear Waves for Mac a month ago and it has changed my life. Very easy to learn.

    bag drop

    I don't have any 100 foot CAT6 and will look into this. I think any 100 foot cable is going to degrade a signal a small amount. Thanks for the tip. I did get two 50 foot super cat cables and will check them this week.

    your experience may be different than mine. I found it sounded ok on line level but tone seemed to overwhelm everything.

    bag drop

    I can not hear any degradation, that does not mean it isn't happening. My receivers will send tone and at line level there was bleed thru. I run them at mic level and with a 100 foot cable I needed a 1 db increase from the receivers to maintain the same levels. I don't see any reason you can not send and receive on the same cable with gender changers. I thought of mixing signals except some shoots will require 4 returns, that is why I am going to create a separate bag for returns. I just ran a long quad star cable to the camera for a scratch track rather than using another cat5 cable. The seco

    bag drop

    I was able to eat all the packages of mini Oreo's and drink all the Starbucks coffee in peace while the rest of them sweated bullets. From where I sit, I think Dante is overkill. Most of the time I can get buy with 4 channels of receive and one cable.

    bag drop

    I worked my first shoot since March last Thursday and Friday. It was a little stressful setting up the bag and an antenna. I ran two Sennheiser 6042 receivers all day on two Lion NP-1 batteries. I set the bag up outside the rooms that were being used. I was able to set up about 50 feet away next to craft services. I ran the transmitters at 10 Milli watt because they were on 15 feet away and it worked great. I can say I am sold on the concept. After countless arrangements in the drop bag I finally decided to have another one for Comtek, boom return, and wireless hops to
  11. I had the same issue with my 664 when plugged into a sl12. The recordings were always fine.
  12. Do you still have some cables? I just bought some Cat Tails version. John in OKC
  13. Does any one have Clear Waves and could comment on it?

    that is a cheaper solution in one unit. Very nice. Does anyone make a dual cat 5 cable that would work?

    bag drop

    After finally seeing the advantage of a bag drop instead of an antenna drop I took the plunge Saturday. I ordered two Cat Tails from Sound Tools website, there is a male and female, on Saturday afternoon and it arrived Sunday evening. Their website link takes you to Amazon to complete the purchase. They are nicely packaged and look like a quality product. If this works out I will probably get another one so I can have 8 channels in my drop bag and use two of the channels to send Comtek and boom return back to the set drop bag with gender changers. They also
