  1. From boom operator @Allen Williams’ Sound Speeds series:
  2. On a whim, I tried loading up the secure HTTPS version of this site (https://jwsoundgroup.net versus http://jwsoundgroup.net). Before, I usually got an error message since the site doesn’t have HTTPS enabled, but what I get today is something totally unexpected… Tried it in Firefox, Safari, Chrome, with my browser extensions enabled, with my browser extensions disabled, and on my phone using mobile data. Same thing. Is it happening for anyone else? https://jwsoundgroup.net

    Something is up with the HTTPS version of the site…

    Just noticed that JWSOUND is now HTTPS-enabled. Thanks @Jeff Wexler!

    Deity Connect.

    Another entrant to the budget wireless world: From the website: Price and release date have not been announced, as far as I can tell.

    Deity Connect.

    You could charge up during lunch, thanks to the promised fast charge time. I don’t mean to defend that design decision though.

    Issue with Lectro SRC in Block 941

    Sorry you’re experiencing these issues, but this is the first I’m hearing about this part – can you elaborate?

    Sound Devices Mix Pre-3 and Mix Pre-6

    I’ve used the original nanoKontrol (kudos to my local library who loans them out) and it is indeed very cheap. It’s hard to imagine getting precise mixes with so little room for the fader to travel. I feel more optimistic about the newer/more expensive Korg nanoKONTROL Studio though, but who knows. (Unless you’ve tried that as well, Dalton?) Point very much taken. Though I guess Zoom was first to take this path by introducing the FRC-8 along with the F8, a combination that’s still less expensive than a MixPre-10T and a control surface.

    Sound Devices Mix Pre-3 and Mix Pre-6

    Pre-roll does seem like a relatively simple feature to implement, and it’s strange that Zoom’s alternatives have it while even the 10T does not. On the other hand, it’s understandable how Sound Devices is conservative in adding features to the MixPre series that may devalue their more professional recorders. If someone wants to mix with a Cooper mixer into a MixPre recorder, it’s still very possible. I’d be wrong to assume using any of these cheap control surfaces would beat the experience of using a CL-12, but I’d like to see someone in the low-budget realm mix a feature with that nanoKontrol 2.

    Who do you use for personal Equipment insurance?

    +1 for reviving the thread. Very curious how everyone is insuring their equipment currently, since I’m not yet.

    Hoping internal batteries on both the transmitters and receivers are user replaceable.

    Audio Limited A10 for talent.

    I’ve been hearing about the wonders of Audio Limited’s A10 system, but it’s almost exclusively been in the context of wireless booming. Would anyone like to talk about using the A10 for wiring talent? Curious about how it performs in that capacity, especially since it’s similarly priced to the Lectrosonics SRc receivers and LT transmitters.

    In a Gotham Sound video, Kish Patel said the short Bluetooth range is due to the metal casing.

    Audio Limited A10 for talent.

    Thank you @Moesound! Another thing that makes me consider the A10 over Lectrosonics’s wideband offerings is the ability to change transmitter settings via Bluetooth. Wondering what you think about that, Ilari.

    Etymotic or other brand for low-cost earplugs?

    Late to the thread, but: I use the ER20XS and it’s part of my daily carry. They’re great for cutting down everyday noises and ambient noise – they performed great while I worked at a Detroit Lions game last week. However I find that they don’t attenuate enough for concerts, since I’m always in front row (I’m vertically challenged). Perhaps an additional 5-10 dB to its 20 dB reduction would suit me better. Also, speech is almost intelligible to me while wearing my ER20XS, but I’m not sure if that’s a problem exclusive to these earplugs. If I forget my plugs on the way to the show, I buy squishy silicone earplugs at drug stores. They sound surprisingly alright!

    Block 941

    Gotham Sound just posted a good summary about Block 941 – benefits, limitations, and precautions:

    Block 941

    Anyone know if IATSE Local 695’s walkthrough of the application process is still good? The note at the top says it’s out of date due to “recent changes in the FCC's license approval procedures,” though Gotham Sound still recommends following it. I’m trying out the online application, and fortunately it’s much better designed and more reliable now than described in the walkthrough.

    Sanken Cs-M1 new mike

    Gosh that sounds lovely. I don’t usually like how Sanken shotguns sound (the low-end is overemphasized to my ears), but I’ll keep an open mind for this one. Wondering how far along Rycote is with developing the shock mount for it.

    Sanken Cs-M1 new mike

    Now I’m even more curious. I like using my MKH 50 indoors and out, but wanted at least a little more distance.
