    Comedians in cars getting coffee?

    I may be wrong about the planted mics, but they said they have a day to record the sounds of the car (engine, exhaust, doors, creaks etc)

    Comedians in cars getting coffee?

    There is an article or two written about the sound production. I believe they use Zaxcom recording transmitters, planted mics and crossed fingers.

    Red Gemini Time Code Input

    I worked with 2 RED Gemini this past week. One had the tiny 4 pin Lemo TC, the other had the OMOD XLR2 add-on which was standard 5-pin Lemo.
  4. I have a new one that is considerably stiffer than my older ones. I haven't had issues with it showing through clothing.

    DPA slim cable getting stiff and brakes

    Ugh, of course. Sweat.

    DPA slim cable getting stiff and brakes

    Every DPA lav that I've ever owned has stiffened up to the point where I don't use them anymore. I've never cleaned them with anything other than my fingers (no solvents, etc)

    Lectrosonics wiring - Standard or Servo?

    See the green text? That's servo-only. Everything else is universal.

    IFB question for the masses

    Doesn't the Serv Pro transmit audio as well?
  9. Not having a carnet might cause some issues...especially in Germany. I'd keep the kit as lean as possible.

    Straightening Old Lav Cable

    I hang them from the head (with a bit of low tack tape) and let them dangle for a few days. Usually helps quite a bit with all of my lavs - Sanken, DPA, B6 etc.

    Different antenna length on Sennheiser G2’s Receiver

    I don't think the slight difference in length will make any real world difference. Remember that those lengths are cut to the center frequency of the range...not cut to one fixed frequency.

    Can you show me how to make low profile XLR to 3.5mm cables

    Just get these. https://www.cabletechniques.com/lopro-xlr-mini-xlr

    Arriflex 416 and Timecode

    How about a tailslate or a bloopslate? Slating doesn't have to be a big event, as long as the key people remember to do it.

    SD 633 question channel 4.5.6 issue

    4,5&6 are line level only. Make sure your receiver outputs are all the way up. Which model of Wisycom receivers are you using?

    Lectro LMb v2.13 changes affect mics with nonstandard wiring?

    Hopefully you got 1/8 watt resistors!
