    I have mostly done music studio work. I also do a lot of concert, orchestral, and chamber music recording. Recently I started doing more work for location sound and sound for picture. I've been thoroughly enjoying it because it takes me out of the control room!

  1. Thats a sweet rig. I’ll see what I can dig up thats cool. Either a mic or a limiter, hmm, which one should I put up on here🤨
  2. Is tjat a BCM2 type mixer? They look so sweet, always wanted one because of the awesome routing abilities. Reminds me so much of working with the Angela desk. Really hard to service and work on though haha
  3. I believe most of them can run on 10v-16v and use about 6watts. the sifam analog meters dont require any power if you decide not to power the lamps
  4. also recommend the dorrough meters. or if you want some VU peak meters, sifam also makes different kinds that you can rack up
  5. Looks pretty amazing!
  6. the 256gb ExtremePro Sandisc cards are rock solid so far.
  7. Hey all, thanks for all the responses. I do have a bunch of chargers for batteries recorders and such. I’ll give those a try if they have the output amp capacity. I just wanted to ask before going on an plugging things in and blowing fuses or something. In the end a power supply is a power supply....
  8. Shastapete, I should’ve been more specific. This is for cart power, not bag use. Constantin, I’ll check out RAs Lifebox. I have a block battery that gets me through the day. I have a small simole and compact cart that is not super power hungry but still has a decent power draw. I’m just wondering of a way to use my audio root BDS (since it has a hirose power input) with AC power. I guess I just like to have options just in case. I’m just wondering if theres any other people out there feeding the audioroot BDS from an AC power source and how they go about it.
  9. Hi all, I use an Audioroot BDS that has a hirose input. Most of the time I power off of my block battery since I get long run times. There are a lot of times where I would love to tap off of available AC power. What are people using to AC power their Audioroot BDSs? I was thinking something like this: https://www.coreswx.com/store.coreswx/product/cube-200/ combined with some sort of UPS or something.... -i
  10. I just got the Nova about two weeks ago. When it first arrived I didn't have any CF cards that were the recommended size, so I used some Sandisc Extreme Pro 256GB that I have and use with one of my cameras. I installed two of them for the Primary and Mirror slots and started using them. In the meantime I ordered some more 'normal' sized audio cards in the 32GB-64GB vicinity but have not installed them. Still running the 256's with no problems. At first I did record tests using 6-tracks and recording at different intervals. I let it go for 20mins, then another take for 40mins, then 60mins, and then 1.5 hrs. There were no issues so I figured they're ok running it. Then I went on a job where we had one take that was 3.5hrs with 8 tracks and it went by very smoothly. No issues whatsoever. When I did first format the primary card it told me it was going to be 30 minutes which I thought was insane. This is my first Zaxcom recorder and all of my other recorders format cards pretty quickly. After it finished it was fine. The mirror card formats much quicker. I kinda like the bigger cards. No issues yet.

    Camera Hops

    Thanks for the ideas John. I just did a quick test of remoting the SNA600a to the side of the bag and it did seem to help a lot. I'd like to minimize the spray even more but running the CL3 at 608 and shortening the SNA600s so the antenna is more in tune to the 650 marking really did make a difference. Would adding an inline filter (between TX and SNA600) help keep the RF spray within the specific TX frequency? I just looked up the frequency question and it seems you're definitely right but there's a couple of spots in the 600mhz range that we might be able to use. Available frequencies following the transition Many frequencies in the TV bands that had been available for wireless microphone use prior to the auction will continue to be available after the transition period. These include: -VHF and UHF frequencies on TV channels 2-36, which fall below 608 MHz. -Certain frequencies in the 600 MHz guard band: 614-616 MHz. -Certain frequencies in the 600 MHz duplex gap: 653-657 MHz for licensed use or 657-663 MHz for unlicensed use. Jon, didn't mean to hi-jack the thread, I was just thinking it's semi-related to the above!

    Camera Hops

    Types of jobs you do: Documentaries, Shows, Films, and everything in between. A lot of day playing. Camera audio will be final or reference: Depends. Most of the time its just TC or guide/reference. There are gigs that I do that require broadcast quality hop. Mono/Stereo hop: Both. Most common cameras you work with: Pretty much all of them. TC needs: JB-1s, Zaxcom ERXs, Zaxcom rx200's. Hey guys, so I have a question regarding UHF hops in a compact bag setup. I primarily use a Zax CL3 with RX200's and URX100's. This setup works fantastic in a cart or if I'm working with the K-tek bag/harness combo because I can place the CL3 TX further away from the incoming RXs. My issue is that most of the time I'm running a really compact and lightweight system that doesn't use the traditional 'sound bag' setup. I don't have a lot of room to place the UHF TX far away from my receiver antennas. Right now, I'm using the TX at 608Mhz frequency and most of my incoming RXs in the 530-550 range. I get significantly reduce range when the CL3 in the bag is on. The second I turn the CL3 TX off my incoming RX range increases dramatically. Is there anything I can do to mitigate this overloading of the incoming RXs? I'm hoping that if I can remote the CL3 antenna to somewhere else in the bag will resolve the issue. I'm going to contact the Zaxcom mothership to see how I can get up to the highest legal use (614mhz?) to get more frequency separation. I'm also hoping that using more of a 'tune-able' antenna (SNA600a) could help mitigate RF spray, or a combination of all of these will allow me to use UHF hops with my compact bag. Picture is attached so you can get an idea. What methods are people using to get the best range for both UHF hops and their normal 'talent' wireless?
  13. I second/third the BD 990’s. They’re open ear design, extended low end response, extremely comfortable and easy to repair should he ever need to. I also like that its a single cord design, which is nice so you don’t have cables getting in the way of playing instruments like guitar, base, drums, etc. They’re also not insanely expensive so you can allocate some $$$ for a decent DA with headphone amp like a Benchmark or a Burl, Apogee, Grace Design, or Cranesong Avocet system. I do like the grado but they’re not confortable unless you get the high end ones. I also dont like that the cables go to the L and R sides. The idea of pairing them with a pair of closed ear phones is a good one. If he ever needs to do overdubs of quiet acoustic music they will come in handy. Westones or in ear monitors are great for this.
  14. i think AES is far from dead. $4200 vs $4995 (nova) is pretty close to be a competitor. the fact that you have to put this little box on the recorder where one would normally put RX’s to me seems like poor design.
