    Schoeps MiniCMIT or DPA 4017b

    I sometimes miss the the high frequency boost for when I put it in a zeppelin. I use the rycote inv 6 with the harder grey lyres. Works pretty well.

    Windscreen Rycote or BUBBLEBEE Industries

    I like the bubblebee. More effective and cooler looking!

    What is your spare recorder

    You could use a couple Tentacles or something similar to act as the master TC clock for the mixpre6. I used the F8 on a job recently and found the internal TC wasn’t super stable. Ended up running a sync box to it. It’s so tiny and light! Your back will thank you!

    Schoeps MiniCMIT or DPA 4017b

    I use a Cut 60 on my schoeps and love it. It’s so tiny, unlike the cut 1 and it’s a very effective cut at a reasonable 60hz. Just enough to get rid of crap I don’t want.

    LT/LR vs SRc

    Yes, as long as the single block of the srb is in the frequency range off the LT.

    Schoeps MiniCMIT or DPA 4017b

    They are different. I have the mini CMIT and love it. Sounds fantastic, forgiving off axis, light, and has great reach. The mini is pretty easy to use in low ceiling rooms too. Not the most directional mic out there, but certainly not bad. I’ve used the DPA and noticed it sounded similar, but not quite as special as the schoeps. More directional. Also a very nice mic. Would love to have both some day. If youre only going to have one mic, I would go 416. You can’t kill it if you tried and sounds very, very good. Like many others have said listen to them before you buy if you can. My humble opinion.

    Custom low-profile braided cables...made to order?

    I think a few people make and sell them. Maybe message “100sideprojects” on here. I know he does.

    COS-11D or DPA 6060

    6060 isn’t out yet so there are very little real world reports. They all seem to be wonderful, however. If they sound like a 4060 they I would use them over a cos-11 any day assuming they are not terribly fragile. More natural sounding.

    Camera Hops

    I use a Lectro LR with Tentacle as well. Awesome mono hop. I have 2 and put one on 2nd cam when we have one. I don’t love using 2 on the same camera for stereo mix. Quite bulky. Works but looks awkward. If I did more work that required primary audio on camera i probably would have gone for an SRc but it’s rare I need that

    Proper Lav Mic Techniques

    My favorite lav is the Schoeps BLM 3G. Way easier to hide than a Shure 57.

    Schoeps CMC gold plating on XLR

    Thanks for all the info, I’ll keep it as is for now. Used it today and sounds exactly like my other schoeps despite it being close to 20 years old!

    Schoeps CMC gold plating on XLR

    I just got a great deal on a used schoeps 641 and am now the proud owner of a pair of these beautiful mics. However, I noticed that the used one does not have a gold plated xlr connector. It instead has a black one. I seem to remember that the gold plating was a later design and helped protect against RFI. Am I correct here? And would it be worthwhile to send it back to schoeps to get it updated? I know some of the older schoeps were susceptible to RF. Any info would be greatly appreciated!

    Standard Analog Cable for AES signal

    Thanks! Thought as much but figured I should ask.
  14. Hey there, I know it is not a great idea in theory to run a digital AES signal through an analog cable, but wondering what real world experiences people have when running for short lengths. I have a specific cable I like to use for all of my bag cables and it would just be going out of my receiver to the input of my mixer, so maximum 1ft. Thanks!
