  1. Oh don't worry then, I didn't know that, I can just use the website. I'm also a software engineer, in case you want any help with that you can contact me and I can help you out dealing with them All the best, Manuel.

    What preamps? Not Kashmir right?
  5. So the conclusion was that the two units were not working properly, weird tho, I talked to PSC and that never happened before to them, I’m now using a new dual band version of the PSC 470-618 and the 900 and I’m super happy with it. Attached two pictures of the two scans with exactly the same setup but different PSC units, check the difference in noise floor for the same selected frequency. Thanks again for your comments. Manuel.
  6. So I have received the second unit and I’m having the same issue with them: I’m using Wisycom receivers and RFVenue diversity antenna. So these are the tests I’ve run: If I connect the receiver to the antenna distro and RFVenue diversity antenna I don’t get any clean freq, the cleanest is around 9db noise floor which it’s unacceptable. If I connect the receiver directly to the diversity antenna the scan comes clean giving me a noise floor of -2db. When using the whips for all my receivers I get a clean scan also. I tried a different antenna distro from a friend and also got clean scans... So I thought it was mine, so I returned it and got a new one but I’m having the same issues... Did anyone have issues with these units? Thanks in advance.
  7. That means you like the TSC better than the Ambient? It’s the one I had and I loved it, bet the bet so has new features like handles to slate with one hand, WiFi to send timecode to betso lockit boxes, when you tails the timecode will turn to be read it perfectly, more options for frame rates, super bright LED numbers, lighter, etc. the bad things: they don’t have service here in LA and it looks it’s more “breakable” compared to the TSC...
  8. Hello guys, recently I got my slate robbed, a Denecke TS-C and I need to buy a new one. I’ve seen the new models of smart skates, Betso and Ambient, both having nice features. I think I’m getting the Betso, but I would love to hear your experience and which one is your favorite. Thanks in advance. Manuel.
  9. Hello guys, recently talking to a friend sound mixer he recommended me to use in ear monitors for “noisy” or reality style productions because of the isolation and be able to monitor exactly what you are recording. I just got the Weston W30 and so far so good but I’m not convinced 100%. I was wondering if you had experience with other in ear monitors for production sound and what is the one you like the most. thanks! Manuel.
  10. So... I’m buying the Schoeps mini CMIT with the Cinela Pianissimo. My question is: is there any reason to buy the CMIT 5U instead? Filters are not needed with the cinela, the reach is the same, the mini is lighter, the cinela smaller... Same sound quality... Just checking with you guys your experience. thanks!
  11. They have released a lot of equipment lately so I doubt they are launching anything new, probably focused on their new wireless systems... I think they’ve forgotten about pro users who will not buy prosumer stuff... Best, Manuel. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Have you tried the QXS550? It’s the smallest of Ambient, I was going for that one since I already have a longer Ambient... Anyone does have it? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. I think these are the best reasons I can think of too, just surprised me how bad they sound in comparison to any other option... Best, Manuel. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Haha, that make sense But sometimes you find director and Scripty that are careful with your equipment and they would love a better quality... For producers and clients of course comteks are the best Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. So many sound ppl are using comteks nowadays as their IFB solution but I recently used them for a bigger production and to be honest... they sound HORRIBLE... How are you people sacrificing sound quality that much for director, Scripty and producers? I know the range is great, they are sturdy, easy to use, don’t interfere with the rest of your RF spectrum, etc, but I didn’t know they sound THAT bad... I use Senheiser G3 IFBs and the sound is incredibly good, good range, easy to use but not that sturdy... I’m pretty sure Lextrosonics and Zaxcom are good too. Just wanted to hear your opinions.
