  1. I highly doubt it. Everything seems to be proprietary these days.
  2. I am a huge fan of the Sonosax preamps. They are by far my favorite sounding. But calling the 688 preamps “crappy” is pretty hyperbolic. Sure, they aren’t as nice and the 7 or 8 series, but very far from crappy.
  3. I usually do one over each person. I rigged up a tiny Fiat recently and a single BLM right in the middle worked perfect for that though.
  4. This has been the “holy grail” for me when it comes to car rigs. It was the first setup that I wasn’t just okay with but actually really liked.
  5. If there isn’t a capacitor to block the 12v in the antenna it definitely could damage them. Not sure if zax puts them in their fins or not. I know Lectro puts them in the SNA600a now to prevent damage from an accidental power application.
  6. Stands for “battery distribution system”
  7. Just got some ZMT 4s and have been trying them with all my mics. Despite the new transmitters all operating at 5v instead of 3v I’m still getting the excess noise and “generally off” sound with my DPA 4061 and 6061s as I remember when using them with the older 3v transmitters. Anyone using them successfully?
  8. I’ve noticed it’s branded only as “Sound Devices.” Does this means they are dropping the Audio LTD name?
  9. Oh right the minimum post thing.
  10. These is a whole section for buying and selling. Please post it there.
  11. Sharkfins are very popular because they have an increase in sensitivity in the front and reject from the back. Raise them up and you will typically get great range. You can even strategically point them away from problematic RF sources.
  12. The only compatible control surface is the CL-12 which has been discontinued. The 633 is still an absolutely fantastic mixer/recorder but if you want a cart setup I’d recommend a different system.
  13. This is my current charge case. I have all the cable-age underneath/out of sight now and it's doing wonders for my OCD.
  14. I have switched from Transpore / Durapore to Mepitac silicone tape for wiring to the skin and talent really likes it (no more 40 year old virgin jokes) but I’m still not satisfied with the adhesiveness, particularly when chest hair is involved. Anyone have any tips with this stuff?
  15. I would go with an Oktava, especially a modded one. Very close to a schoeps sonically. Like Phillip said, you need an excellent shockmount and boom operator. Nothing will beat a schoeps though...
  16. I have one regular cmit and one mini cmit and I actually miss hearing it with the mini. I’ve gotten so accustomed to the fart. My boom op calls it the “Schoeps shart.”
  17. Currently an 833, an SL-2 with two SRCs, Blackmagic dual monitor, Icon control surface, a Zaxcom Camera Link, and a Comtek BST-75-216. Can get a whole day on it. battery is on the bottom and the hot box is fastened to the cart behind the bag.
  18. Sad to read about the passing of Rupert Neve today. The soundtrack to mine, and many others lives were recorded and mixed on a Neve. While not too popular with us I always loved hearing from the handful of Mixers who did used them on a cart. Seemed so exotic!
  19. My small cart consists of a pelican battery and a Remote Audio Hotbox. Works fantastic!
  20. If there is post I don’t think about it. they have the tools to shape it any way they want. Honestly, if I can get a boom close enough to get proximity effect I’m pretty happy! live broadcast to no-post (ugh) stuff I will EQ the low end a bit to even it out if the mic is too close.
  21. All three. You still need to know your RF for them to work properly, but they perform phenomenally, sound fantastic, and are built like tanks.
  22. I started with 4 used 411s and 4 used UM400a s. They are still rock solid and never let me down. Sound and perform just as good as my SMs. I would highly recommend them over the AVX, G3/G4, UWP etc and probably won’t cost you that much more.
  23. The Cinela OSIX is great with the 8040/50. Don’t own an 8050 but have boomed with that combo and it was great!
