  1. What a time to be a young mixer!
  2. I use a zmt phantom for my boom with a Sound Devices recorder. I use an ifb200 for zaxnet. I mean a recorder is a recorder. One thing you might consider is that many of the recorders they make don’t have a ton of AES inputs. If you run your Zaxcoms AES in that could be a problem.
  3. Hey everybody, I just got offered a gig as a one man band for a narrative project (ugh already) and the producer just mentioned that there would need to be playback and earwigs with recorded dialogue. I said that I could not do playback, boom, and mix at the same time and she said that other mixers do it all the time. I essentially told her that she should hire one of those guys and hung up but I wanted to check... IS ANYONE ACTUALLY DOING THIS? It seems absolutely bonkers to try and do this as a one man band.
  4. I did this mod myself and it was fairly easy. Not a lot to screw up. It’s just a + and a -
  5. Is this just a cable or is it a new Cosi?
  6. I’ve always wanted Wingman implemented into a smart watch somehow. As a way to watch the meter while you’re booming.
  7. ***Shameless plug warning*** i know of that’s available right now on this forum... it’s mine! Someone go buy it! But I actually found the 664 to sound nicer as well. It’s subtle, but I preferred it. Limiters specifically. But they are all really nice. I have a 633 and the aforementioned 688 and am never unhappy with how they sound. It’s kind of splitting hairs in my opinion. But we sound people sure do love to split hairs.
  8. I have used all 3 and I would say none of them. Get a used Schoeps. My opinion: Oktava sounds nice, but is very difficult on a pole (handing and wind noise). Audix can sound nice on certain voices but has poor reach. The Audio Technica has poor reach and a very boring sound. Just my opinion but if you're going to spend 600-800 on a mic you'll outgrow (and you will outgrow any of them), might as well spend 900-100 and get something you'll grow into.
  9. Well, I guess that settles it! Looks like the QRX100 would be a good way to go. Thanks everyone!
  10. Are you listening to your mix track or your iso tracks? If you are listening to your iso track then that would make perfect sense.
  11. You should contact Denecke and ask, but like Olle said I don’t think there is anything you can do to change it.
  12. I might have a good deal on a qrx100. I’ve read the manuals and researched them both a bit and the technical differences, but I’d like to hear from people who have used both. I would be using it with my 742 and zmt phantom. Not interested in using it as a camera RX. Just for use with 1 or 2 boom/talent TX. I am also not sure I need a wideband receiver as I only really use it in one block. Is there any reason I should consider one of the newer RX?
  13. When I owned a CS3e I noticed a higher self noise than some of my other mics. Was never an issue for exteriors, but bothered me for certain interior scenes. i never loved the sound of it and ended up selling it for a Sennheiser 8060. Not as directional, but dead quiet with a nicer tone.
  14. This is typical for connecting an unbalanced signal to a balanced input. Take a piece of wire and solder it from pin 1 to pin 3. I use the extra wire attached to a resistor.
