    Lavaliers and Cell Phone Interference ???

    How many channels were you using? Did you calculate for intermod? I’ve had that with g3’s before. An actor got kept his phone in his pocket and whenever he got a text I got a hit. I was able to replicate it later with my phone, but it was intermittent. I imagine that it has to do with the RF filters in the units not being as effective as they need to be and letting the RF from the phone in. i have had all sorts of odd things happen with G3’s and the day I sold them for lectros I got a lot happier. i know a lot of people have success with the G3’s but I have always found them to be unreliable and unpredictable. IMO that is one of the worst qualities you can have in production equipment.
  2. Have you visited Location Sound Corp., Trew Audio, Audio Department, or Wilcox? I bet you could demo every bag on the market between all of them. You could even bring your gear in and see how it fits.

    Favorite Mic to use for Interior Situations?

    Audix sound similar to a Schoeps (though not quite as nice) but doesn’t have as much reach in my experience. A modded Oktavs might be something to look at. But a nice interior mic is one of those things you’ll be glad you invested in. But once, cry one. You won’t regret getting a Schoeps or mkh50 after you use it.

    Digital + Analog

    Off topic but Jack, how do you set delay between your lectros and zax. I have a zax boom and lectro wire and have never got them aligned to my liking.

    Choosing boom pole

    I love my VdB poles. I have an 18 foot and a 9 foot. The 18 foot is my go to for narrative collapses enough to get in some pretty tight spaces. They are fairly rigid and the bottom section is great re: handling noise. And you can easily add or remove a cable without and soldering. This works great when doing different types of gigs where an internal cable or lack of cable would be desirable.

    Deity Connect.

    Yellow is their color for everything. I agree it’s not the most logical choice for something that needs to be hidden. I guess gaff on the sides will help but it’s lame you have to do that. I’m curios to see these out in the real world. I’m pretty skeptical but would love if they work as well as they say they will. Zaxnet has made me pretty weary of anything 2.4ghz and range, but maybe they figured it out.

    PSC Antenna Distro

    I typically use it with Lectrosonics src’s, but have used it with a friend’s a10 and zaxcom receivers. The noise floor is the same across the board. I’d really love to get it working optimally because it’s an awesome distro that has made my bag so tidy.

    PSC Antenna Distro

    I’d love to know if you resolve this issue. I’m running into the same thing with the DADM 226 and can’t seem to figure it out. I’ve tried so many different rf shorties and the noise floor remains higher than it should be.

    DPA 3mm lav mic

    I just got my 6061’s today. Holy crap do they sound good! I might even prefer them to the 4060/1. Almost as easy as a Countryman to hide.

    OSIX CMR I: Why was it discontinued?

    I own 2 CMR cables and use them as plants. In my experience they work well but are very gain hungry and not as “RF proof” as the most recent CMC6 body. I have to crank my lectro to get a good level. Still sounds good though. And the cable is really microphonic. I could see that being a pain on a boom. I haven’t tried it though.

    K-Tek Boom Pole and Local Radio Station pickup

    You could try the Neutrik EMC connectors. They have filters built into them that can help with unwanted RF. I don’t know if they make a panel connector. I’m assuming that’s what you/they have at the end of the k-tek.

    Sound Devices 633 latch up

    Did you hold the menu button for 5ish seconds? That will reset the machine and has been the only way of resetting when my 633 has locked up.

    Red question

    I believe Red (Epic, Scarlet?) has 2 balanced mono inputs (T+ R- S ground) so I think you would need an individual cable from each output of the Sony. I have always done with using an SR

    Zaxcom ZMT3 Hiss

    Thanks for the video! Earlier this week I went by Audio Department in Burbank to test the ZMT3/ambient against the ZMT phantom. While the Ambient solution was a little noisier, I was still surprised by the noise floor of the Phantom, still higher than I expecteded. I’d be really interested to hear how noisy the 742/743 is from anyone who has used it.

    Zaxcom RX200 and TRX743 stereo

    I don’t think the RX200 has any zaxnet capabilities. The QRX235 can with the right card. You would need a zaxnet transmitter.
