  1. If no one from the camera team is being paid a rental on that unit they may be open to using something else for the rest of the show. Easiest fix I can think of is use a different boom mic.
  2. Nah, you nailed it. Personally, I feel like there are so many other factors that affect how the boom sounds, it seems odd to immediately not want to try a product specifically designed for it. I was just being glib.
  3. That's an odd thing to be snobbish about.
  4. Just a heads up - the MG 210 and 310 don't work with a Lectro plug on [without an additional piece]. Ive tried it with Audio Limited and Zax with success.
  5. I use the tape out for playback - you can assign any card tracks you want on it. it should be in the first BUS menu.
  6. The REGEN then PRESET method has been working great for me. Battery / framerate changes can zero out the clock sometimes but resetting it is real easy.
  7. It's my usual interior mic - I like it, you get a little more in the top end and a bit less in the bottom vs. a 50. The only real issue I had with it is that it doesn't work with a Lectrosonics plug on (I don't know why). It also takes a second to fire up - it goes silent for a half second when powering up. Other than that, it's a pretty darn good mic.
  8. I use it w/ an all zax set up w/ no problems. It seems like a tough mic to introduce interference to. I can't remember where I read it, but I think it actually uses 80V across the membrane and there was something about optical coupling that helps keep out unwanted buzzing.
  9. Is there an amp incorporated into the antenna distro? That could be the cause of the increased noise floor of the scans.
  10. Thanks for the quick response! The input was very helpful.
  11. A post supervisor is insisting on a specific track order I’m trying to wrap my head around. ( I’m asking to just provide a mono mix + Isos) Before I push back, I was hoping to hear some thoughts. Here is what they are asking for: ”track 1 - mix boom” ”track 2 - mix lavs” “tracks 3-12 ISO’s” does anybody here work like this for a TV show? It’s scripted, and I will have a full team with me. On a wide shot would “boom mix” just be really low? I think it’s odd to have my recorded tracks be micro-managed towards something more complicated. any thoughts would be appreciated.
  12. I was checking out the manual for this and couldn't find anything about mix assist. Did I miss something?
