    Best Reporters Microphone

    Hey Guys, what is the best "reporters" mic? What about the Rode Reporters mic? I have a wireless Sennheiser e835 which sounds OK, it's cardioid and the Rode is omni, what do you think?
  2. I'm off to China and Singapore next. What are the legal wireless frequencies out there? Anyone know please?

    Recording Car Audio FX

    Hey Guys, thought this may be of interest. I've just done a fun job recording a Jaguar F Type Race Car. (see photo below) Some of the audio was captured by mics placed in and around the car, however, the fun part was being strapped into the back of the follow truck (a V8 Dodge) whilst we went round the track with the car in hot pursuit. So, I planted a Zoom H4N in the engine bay with a Sure SM58. I planted a Sanken Cos11 on the interior centre console of the jag, attached to a Micron TX and another identical rig on the rear of the car at a centre point between the exhaust tail pipes. I dialled down the gain on the Zoom H4N to 10 and set the Micron TXs to level 1. These are pretty much the lowest gain settings I could get. The Zoom rig was just a "set and go", but the results were great. I had scope on my SD 633 to dial up decent levels for the Microns and again the results were good. I was unsure if the Cos11 on the back of the car would cope with the SPL from the exhaust level but it coped remarkably well. I used my trusty Rode NTG-3 for the follow shots and later on I captured some really cool "fly bys". Has anyone done something similar and how did you do it? Would be very interested to hear from you. Paul. PS. I had a very happy client!
  6. Hey Guys, what do I need to utilise Shark Fin Antennas from my bag/cart? I run 3 Micron Explorers and want to increase the range. I've seen passive and active antennas and also distribution units. I need a simple straightforward solution please. P.
  7. Hi Guys, I've got a couple of trips coming up. What are the allowed wireless frequencies in Germany and R.O.Ireland? Will I need a license? Thanks................

    Wireless upgrade Lectrosonics?

    Hey Guys, I'm considering an upgrade of my wireless kit. I started with Sennheiser G3s and now run 3 Micron Explorers which have limiters. I use the G3s for headphone sends and wireless hops. I like the look of the Lectrosonics systems but they are soooooo expensive. What would I gain by upgrading? I work on a variety of shoots including Film, TV and corporate. Would love all your thoughts.

    Soundbag as Hand Luggage

    Hey Guys, my trip to Dubai is looming. Any tips on flying with your sound bag as hand luggage and checking in a large Peli case? A bit confused on which type of battery you can carry on the plane; I use a Swit NP-1 Li-lion 14.4v. I'm flying with B.A. from London Heathrow.

    Soundbag as Hand Luggage

    Thanks guys, great advice. One last question..........how do I carry my boom pole? Hand luggage as an extra? I have a Rode carbon boom pole and I still have the plastic tube it came in.......???

    Micron Output Cable to TA3

    I have a SD 633 and want to run a Micron Explorer receiver into the line in TA3 on channels 4,5,or 6. Can I just re-terminate the Micron output cable (RX AOCH-HR4......just signal, no power) to a TA3. I've noticed the Micron cable has a "ground Jumper"; a TA3 can't be wired the same. Any thoughts?
  13. Hey Guys, I need to clamp my iPad Mini onto my sound cart. Any ideas? Products? I'm in the UK. Thanks,

    Antennas for Micron Explorers

    Hey Guys, what do I need to connect either Dipole or SharkFin antennas to my Micron Explorers. (I have two). Do I need passive or active, also would I need a distributor? It'll be a cart set-up. Would a distributor need power? ................ Waddayathink?

    4 tracks...6 Radios and 1 Boom

    Hey Guys, I'm a UK based sound recordist and I've got a TV pilot to shoot.I have a Sound Devices 744T and 442 mixer. I need to use 6 radio packs and a boom for this job and would welcome any work-arounds or maybe you've done the same thing.There's no budget to hire in any more gear so I'm thinking I'll have to "double up" on some channels.Waddayathink???

    4 tracks...6 Radios and 1 Boom

    Hey Guys, a development..........my boom op has bought himself the same kit as me. He has a 744t and a 442. I reckon we can link these and we're good to go. Waddayathink?

    4 tracks...6 Radios and 1 Boom

    Hey Guys, thanks for all your input here. It's really cool to get different options and opinions, all of which make sense. Don't get me wrong, I'm no novice but this kind of TV shoot is something new to me. (6 lavs......doh!!) I shall deffo enlist the aid of a boom op and suggest to the production manager we need a 788T or at least a Zoom F8. Thanks again guys; this is a cool forum. I shall report back with how I got on and will indeed keep smiling!!
