  1. Also take care that you did not formate your drive in case-sensitive as that dont allow video playback in PT. A friend of mine had the same problem like you, he bought a macbook second hand from a dealer, the drive was formated case-sensitive...
  2. And you can ask at the rental houses if they want to sell a used mic, as they dont have a lot work for the moment you can get good deals, i just bought a dpa4017 for a good price...
  3. For cam mic mounting a one mic solution seems the most easy... like konstantin said, sanken ms, sennheiser mkh 418... there are some audiotechnica ms shotguns and neumann rsm 190/191 ( in my opinion the best sounding of the bunch), but for that you need a matrixbox that you have to rig somewhere at the cam, so its getting bulky...
  4. Sometimes i use 8050 as a boom mic indoors. its quite directional and pulls the voice better then neumann km 150 or gefell m310 but has that sennheiser sound which you may like or not... as shotgun i use a dpa4017 and i am very pleased by size, weight and sound...
  5. i like my gefell m310 hypercard, and neumann km 140‘s pop up sometimes used for a good price... what kept me away from b9 audio is that there is only the taiwanese seller, so for service it could be problematic... with gefell and neumann i had good experiences for service and repair...
  6. Thats the old pcb layout, not serviced/repaired by sennheiser anymore. the white foam is normal... Check all connections/screws for your rattle problem, there should be a ring at the xlr connector too, if its not there it maybe that the kabel mic connection is rattling...
  7. Same here, if possible i use the tx as line level sources, for me its sounding cleaner like that.
  8. i had that problem too, found the orca bag very noisy not only the zippers and avoid them... for the moment i reactivated my old kortwich bag.
  9. For music composing (not for recording instruments) i use open headphones, closed cans are not very neutral in their frequence response and horrible for your ears if using for longer times, my favorite are AKG K702, very comfortable and quite good in the sound imaging. For the last bit of linearity i use sonarworks headphone correction software. I did alot of editing, playing virtual instruments and premixing with this setup and it translates quite well. Sometimes in the big music shops they have a wall with headphones plugged in a player and so you can test them against each other and decide what are the most flat and comfortable.
  10. Thanx for all the informations, i gonna wait for the final project planning and if the budget is OK i will go for 2 neumann kk143 capsul and an aditional km a body as i already own a km a 120 fig 8 and realy like the sound of the neumann km line...
  11. yes, i have one too, its one of my ms options...
  12. @chrismedr schoeps mk21, but i would buy neumann km a 143... @Ty Ford for recording something in the ambience i use different ms combinations, i think more about general wide soundscapes like city from rooftop, beach, wind, forest...
  13. hello, next year i gonna have to record some classical concerts for a documentary. i did some orchestra recordings for tv this year and used a pair of wide cards as main mic, i loved the sound... now i am thinking of buying a pair, but as i work mainly for documentaries i would like to justify the investment for a longer term- do some of you made recordings for ambiences/ atmospheres with a pair of wide cards and how you liked it?
  14. Why not? The hammam where we filmed was fully in action, steam bath, fog, humidity, pools, hot and cold rooms... If they want the steam in the sauna it has to be on... I just would run a test with the lavs before and than decide whats possible...
  15. I made a shot in an hammam this year... No lavs, as the guy was sometimes in the water. I used my 744t and an MS Boom Gefell M310/Neumann KM120. We have been with our camera and soundequipment 2hours before start to give the time for acclimatization. Everything was working without problems. Only downside was the poor sound of the location... I you have the chance make a test with your wireless and you will know if its working...
