  1. I think this is all normal for emerging markets. The guys who work cheap are busy and the others are angry. I have seen this forever in the freelance market. I spent 20 years in the Austin Texas market from 1986. I try to not even think about these things, work comes my way then great. It does seem that up and down of the freelance market is something that has no logic to it.
  2. If I hadn't already bought a second Schoeps I would be trying to use my MKH 50. I have a new small bag with a mix pre 6 if I need to do any bagwork. Think I will pair it with that kit. I did one bag job with the mix pre and MKH 50. It was a wireless feed I used Sony digital for the hop. Since it was single system I used the highest bit and sample rate just as an experiment. I will try to find the audio, it was amazing.
  3. I have had some disappointing results with the MKH 50 except being hardwired to a mix pre. That mic came alive and was completely different. I have not had good results with any of my 6 series SD recorders. I look forward to hearing about preamps.
  4. real good if you want to work for 4 to 500 per day with gear on a movie. There is other work too but the market is maturing at a glacial pace. I watched the same thing play out in Austin Texas during the late 80's and 90's. Many of the struggling legacy Oklahoma crew members are having trouble getting the right pay and there is a resistance to any new blood. The crew we have fought hard to establish themselves here. I am a relative new comer to OKC and that a was 10 years ago. One of the other local sound mixers will not even answer my phone calls. The other's really keep their distance
  5. I was thinking about movies.
  6. good luck, I hope you get a position.
  7. How many mixers actually try to mix their content? Over and over I have been told to just put the lavs on one track and the boom on the other. I would love to hear from those in Post Production too.
  8. I was diagnosed with Meniere's disease yesterday. Good thing it will only affect one ear. Another downside is Caffeine and salt aggravate it, I love coffee. There is no cure and no known cause. I tried a hearing aid and it did help with conversations. I am not confident it will help, if not hurt, my ability to mix when using multiple microphones. I just finished a movie this week and all went well. I was able to mix it as good as I ever could.
  9. Last April I started to have some balance problems. I just finished a movie and I had used an earbud for the radio and headphones over that for the mixer. I had become used to not hearing all the sound of the mixer in the left ear. Shortly after the movie went dark because of covid I had trouble talking on the phone with that ear. I had hurt them before with loud sounds and just figured it was the two way radio and the ears always recovered. The balance continued to be a problem and has slowly become better. I made an appointment with the ear specialist three weeks ago and after many hea
  10. I am trying to get my second shot of the Moderna vaccine. I described the experience as a mini version of Covid. I did not loose my smell but had sore muscles, brain fog (more than usual), headache after two days and it lasted about 3 days. I am due for the second shot on the 4th.
  11. I blasted Sennheiser a couple of years ago for not sending me my rebate check. It turned to that the envelope had been pushed under a pile of junk mail, It was my fault. They reissued the check, that took a while. But in the end it was my fault.
  12. I had them on but had no way to know if they were working.
  13. I received my MCR 54 kit with 4 MTP 40S October 15th and have been using it for almost a month. I started a move on the 21st and just finished it this week. Observations: * Encoder mode needs to be included in the Sync function. * Range is great, I settled on 50 Milli watts. * Sound is very crisp and clean * Receiver output headroom exceeds my 688 and can be a problem. Getting the Attn right is a constant battle. * 40S transmitters are durable and last up to 5 hours on two enelope pro batteries * The expanded wide range is great, I have been using mine in the
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
