    Question about passive splitter for bag use

    Lets say I will use a passive 3 way splitter, but most of the time I only have 2 SR'S connected, leaving the third output on the splitter open for an occasional third wireless, lets say an LR. When not using the third output, there will still be a 1/3 loss, not a 1/2 right?

    Maybe stolen gear on ebay

    I don't think the auction has ended regulary, I think it got cancelled. For whatever reason.

    Sound Devices recorders - which way to go?

    I think it would be bad indeed. Just would show that they completely lose their high end production sound customers out of sight. They really need to come up with something for this market, or they lose a good cut of old costumers to Zax and Aaton.

    No pick up possible is a big bright red flag.

    Sound Devices recorders - which way to go?

    even tho I am far from being in the market for such a machine, I hope to see one aswell. After they conquered the low end market with the MixPre3/6/10, I really want to seem them still caring for the pro sector. After acquiring Audio Ltd. I guess chances are high they are not leaving their high end game as it is.

    Viviana or Ursa?

    URSA all the way. They came first, I had some good talks with Simon, and I really didnt like the way Daniele and his associates behaved on social media when being confronted with the similaritys between URSA and VIviana.

    Lectro SRc field reports?

    I thought I chime in with an eMail I got from Lectros Service Manager in September, after having my SRc-C1 send in. "We have a pending change to the circuit board of the SRC-C1 to improve the exact problem that you have been experiencing. The issue is that the new wideband units, with the wider tuning range, have been more susceptible to outside interference – outside the tuning band of the unit. When your SRC was here last month, the scan settings were off and were adjusted, however that did not address your entire problem. This new PCB will have much better protection against this interference which causes symptoms of short range, bad scans, etc. However, we do not have the final release of these improved PCBs from our engineering department yet. Unfortunately, I don’t have a firm ETA from them either. " I recently asked for an update on the case "No updates as of yet. This is a top priority in our engineering dept and we hope to have them soon. However, we want to make sure the update it is optimal with thorough testing before releasing it. I have you on my list to contact as soon as we have them available to make the repair." So they are on it. Hopefully they have the new boards soon... Cheers

    Rates in UK / Europe

    I don't work in fictional TV stuff, but as far as I know the Ver.di FilmUnion rate is not really good. its around 300/10 for a Sound Mixer, without equipment. Please correct me if I'm wrong. The only real solution I see is to try to organize as many collegues around you to keep the rates up, or even get them up, and hold the line if producers go shopping. I for myself only recommend people I know will match my rates and dont sell out. And I try to add to that list, making people aware.

    Rates in UK / Europe

    For Germany I try to get the rates suggested by bvft: http://www.bvft.de/wordpress/?page_id=6777 But when it comes to TV documentary, its very hard to get a decent rate.
