  1. Hi, Thanks all for the replies and help. An update on what we did: We bought a Yeti Blue Nano and inexpensive headphones and shipped to the interviewee, along with emailed instructions for how to use and set up best conditions for recording sound. We used zoom to connect: - the director - the interviewee - the sound recordist The sound recordist used Source Connect to route the interviewee's computer sound into the recordist's ProTools rig; we made sure the director's questions got recorded separately but stayed out of the interviewee's sound feed.
  2. Hi, A low-budget doc I have been working on is going to try remote audio-only interviews. I've been tasked with suggesting some workflow solutions. I did check the site but didn't see anything; if I missed it I'd be glad to be pointed in the proper direction. I am currently thinking along two approaches. 1. Via the Internet - Basic guidelines provided to each interviewee to minimize "noise" in their environment. - Headphones that could be mailed to each interviewee, connected to their phone in order to hear the director's questions - A USB mic mailed to each interviewee that could be connected with some ease to their laptop; they would use the mic to respond top the director's questions - An internet connection, such as Source Connect, which would feed to interviews voice to my system from which I could record directly in Pro Tools - The equipment package (mic and headphones) would then be mailed to the next interviewee 2. The Interviewee recording directly into a portable recoding - mail an equipment package of mic, headphones and H5 type recorder to each interviewee - do a zoom session to help each interviewee set up the equipment and check rec levels. - Basic guidelines provided to each interviewee to minimize "noise" in their environment. - The equipment package (mic, recorder and headphones) would then be mailed to the next interviewee Am I missing a more obvious solution? Or a better one? One mitigating factor - the director wants the solutions to be "plug n' play" easy... Any help appreciated. Mike
  3. aha... This looks like a similar design/function to the Rycote. I had seen this but was concerned that there might be "slippage" between the XLR and the device. Thank you for the info.
  4. Hi, I currently run a short XLR from my boom mic, out of the zeppelin, to a lectro UH400A, which I tape to the mic pistol grip. I like having it out of the Zeppelin for ease in off/on and battery swap. I want to replace using tape with either of the items listed above. Does anyone have experience with either of these low cost but (seemingly) high value items? Thank you, Mike
  5. Indeed; one more reason JWSound is such a resource...I'm working my way up the prod snd chain, one post at a time!
  6. Hi, Thx Bernie, Senator, Larry, Marc et al for this thread; very helpful. The link to the 66-page wireless guide returns a 404, and I couldn't locate it on lectrosonic.com; any help locating a copy appreciated. mike
  7. Hi, I'm trying to ascertain if COS-11d mics (Ta5 connectors) will work with Tram 79 capsules. I spoke with a tech from Plus24 (the dealer that Sanken Japan directed me to) and his response was "yes...most probably." But they've never tested directly. I have several tram 50s I use, wired via the 79 capsule and wireless via lectrosonic tx. I am trying to move into COS11s and hope not to have to buy separate power capsules when I want to go wired. Thx in advance, Mike
  8. Hi, Righto...that makes sense. Thank you for the help. best, Mike
  9. Hi, Thanks for the prompt replies. I have a question in to production re: scratch or a proper track, but haven't heard back yet. re: sync: I will follow your advice and slave the F8 and Arri to the master tentacle unit best, Mike
  10. Hi, I'm building up my prod sound experience and have a one-day doc shoot tomorrow in which I am doing two things new to me: - providing TC to the camera - sending a mix output from the recorder to the camera I'm feeding 3 lectro radio mics and a boom into a SD442, and then iso'd mics and a mix into a zoom F8. I've checked the JW posts and have gotten useful info; this is what I plan to do: 1. I'm renting a tentacle sync and plan to jam sync the F8, and the Amira via BNC in 2. I'm renting a lectro SRC receiver with two LT transmitters, outputting from the f8 to the Amira ch. 1 and 2, mic level in Any info re: unintended results appreciated. Thx, Mike
  11. All this info is very helpful; thx much. Mike
