  1. In the market for some new transmitters, so this couldn't come at a better time! That is if they are transmitters......
  2. Working on a cart build and curious how people secure their 8 series to their carts? I’m aware of the 1/4 20 thread on the bottom, is anyone using that? If so what are you screwing it into? Obviously I can throw it in a bag and just plop the bag on the cart but looking for a more permanent solution so the mixer can live on the cart. The cart is going to have standard rack spaces so anything that could interface within them would be perfect.
  3. Curious if anything revolutionary ever happened......or just anything at all. I feel like we’ve been hearing about this cart for a long time but have never seen a picture or anything. Tried finding it else where out of curiosity, found the name Stretch and that’s about it. @indiefilm, any updates?
  4. Is your plan to put the rack case on top of the bars, where the monitors are currently sitting? Or on the shelf? Also do you have a plan for attaching the case to the cart? I'm looking at doing something similar and trying to figure it out.
  5. One thing I feel is overlooked here, if you are cycling to work you are probably more health conscious and exercise more often on your own. Thus your breathing wouldn't be as laborious as expressed in the study. It's also assuming those biking to work are doing so at an aerobic rate, which all my friends who do try their best not to sweat on the way to work, so I would be surprised if their breathing rates were that high on the commute. Now, maybe these people think their cycling commute is exercise enough for them and don't do anything else on their own, still increases conditioning leading t
  6. I don't see that happening anytime soon. I used the Zoom F8 for a while before upgrading to SD. Zoom's preamps just don't sound as clean and their capabilities just don't stack up in my opinion. Zoom's have their place and are nice, but no SD.
  7. Rereading the FAQ’s on Sound Devices website, I believe you are right. Those are the tested and approved one but anything that uses MCU should in theory work. Can always give it a try and see what happens.
  8. As of right now no. The list of compatible control surfaces is: Behringer X-TOUCH iCON Platform M+ (w D2 Display) iCON Platform X+ iCON Platform B+ Mackie MCU Pro Sonosax SX-LC8+ Sound Devices CL-12 Sound Devices CL-16 So there are options other then the CL-16. I’ve heard some people love the Sonosax, I believe it’s powered via usb as well (don’t quote me on that) making it easy to use on location. I have the icon M+ and for the most part have been happy with the limited use I’ve done with it.
  9. I started to dabble with WAVES at the end of last year and I’m planning on fully integrating into my workflow this year. The free is what really got me, especially for everything it does. It’s easy to use and everything looks clean. They’ve added features over the years it seems which continues to make it better, including reminders for soon to be due or overdue invoices. One other helpful thing is their reports, as I’m in the market to buy a house some of the lending agents I’ve been dealing with have been trying to discredit my freelance work. Being able to give them an updated P&a

    Sound carts

    I can't vouch for the opening the lid while still on the shelf bit, but I've been thinking about using this cart myself until I get around to making a real legit one. They have an XL version that will fit the pelicans you are talking about. It's also taller so would be a little easier to work off of I think.
  11. Used the hollyland on one job, full disclosure I wasn’t mixing this one, it as an MOS commercial with a crew I work with a lot. We had turn the hollyland off after an hour because it was interfering with our teradek too much. Can’t confirm it was the issue and going to do more testing later, but any time the hollyland was on we couldn’t get a solid picture on our directors feed. I’m almost positive part of the issue was close distance to each device, we had a teradek on the camera broadcasting to the AC and video village, the hope was the have a small handheld monitor for the directo
  12. Very embarrassing, but that was in fact it. Luckily no one else seemed to notice as i got a few compliments that everything sounded good. Was able to make the correction and it sounded even better though. Appreciate the feedback! Still, feel very silly for overlooking that.
  13. Recently I’ve been on a few gigs and have noticed some issues with my lectro wireless in terms of gain staging. There is a very high probability it’s something I’ve done wrong, so please let me know if I’ve overlooked something. I’m having issues with my SSM’s and SRc’s in terms of gain staging, it sounds like I’m overloading at some stage. I have them plugged into my 833 and during the recordings it’s not peaking there. But it sounds slightly distorted (like it’s peaking), I have the mixer gain down as far as it will go (12 dB) and the transmitter as well (-7). After a little while
  14. 822a...successor to 411s. But digital and backwards compatible (like pretty much all their new digital receivers). Looks very similar to the 411s but has two channels. Looks very interesting and excited to hear more about it.
  15. For those of you running an MM1, what’s your preferred power solution? Do the AA battery’s normally last a good amount of time or do you rig some external source to it?
