  1. Again found a similar folding cart, made by the house brand of German music equipment vendor Thomann: the Millenium Go-Kart Truck XL. Identical in carrying capacity to Rock-N-Roller’s mid-range R10 model, but $100~ USD less. It seems to be exclusively sold by Thomann, though they offer a three-year warranty and 30-day return policy. I may end up purchasing this one for an upcoming feature, along with Rock-N-Roller’s carpeted shelf to see if they’re compatible. My only wish was that Thomann/Millenium also sold wider casters for more challenging terrain, but I bet I can find stem casters sold elsewhere that may fit. Also, I found a video from photographer Tony Roslund showing his simple Rock-N-Roller modification to make the shelf accessory easier to install:
  2. Remote Audio has updated and expanded their Rainman line, with a redesigned rain cover and introducing new transmitter covers (for plug-ons and body packs) as well as wrist cuffs. Trew Audio released a video (featuring @Glen Trew) to demonstrate the new products: Some images from Trew Audio’s email announcement:
  3. Set the temperature in between, equal opportunity discomfort. I’m more sensitive to cold despite being male, for what it’s worth.
  4. A great video from @JimKeaney in Boston, featuring a Dinkum Systems FlexiMount, Ursa Straps WireRig, Peter Engh Omnigoose, Sanken CUB-01, and Bubblebee Industries Lav Concealer:
  5. I tried Wisycom once and their included manuals are indeed lackluster. Unfortunate despite the nice sound quality I got. When in doubt, dual-battery is better since it necessitates less battery changes.
  6. All I know is to avoid Android Wear, as the lack of updates to the platform makes it seem Google will phase it out sooner or later. Meanwhile you can take a look at the Fitbit Versa and the Garmin smartwatches. If they were still in business, Pebble (bought by Fitbit) had a great line of smartwatches. Mine is still trucking along after two years and it’s nice to use.
  7. :( Good luck to ya. Are wired lavs standard for sit-downs? As much as I would like that, I’ve still been asked to run wireless for interviews.
  8. I suggest applying for an Employer Identification Number. From my understanding, it can substitute for a Social Security Number when doing business even as a sole proprietorship.
  9. Here’s the feed URL to subscribe to the show, via a podcast app: https://feeds.soundcloud.com/users/soundcloud:users:462459738/sounds.rss
  10. The website works great on my phone, it’s one of the better mobile-friendly websites. I tried Tapatalk once and it lasted barely a day before I quit it. Also the amount of data it collects is ridiculous, this bit being the most egregious:
  11. I think you have the only good solution, since more convenient options end up compromising security. You could use something like Firefox Send or Lufi, which lets you limit how much and how long files can be downloaded. But that won’t stop people from just emailing around files insecurely. (This happened to me.) A similar thing can happen if you use conventional services like Dropbox or Google Drive. Ultimately having the files themselves be password-protected is the best solution I can imagine. Plus it’s not a terribly uncommon practice in the business world. I’ve received tax documents as password-protected PDFs. I suppose you can use a dead-simple password scheme, like the recipient’s phone number.
  12. Noticed this on Neutrik’s website. Posting here as an FYI to digital audio users here.
  13. Looks like On-Stage Stands makes a very similar folding cart, the UTC2200. Comparable specs to the Rock-n-Roller R6RT and priced the same, though better-reviewed (at least on Sweetwater and Amazon).
