  1. to me this looks like native 5.0 recording setup. Maybe the placement is a bit off, but still... One could even think that the tumbleweeds are spaced omnis ;) my bet is on a Surround Sound mini Recorder...would love that!
  2. Hey Everyone, just wanted to let you know that I successfully combined a Zaxcom and WisyCom Sytem together in one Antennatree. I used the Antenna output of the PSC SixPack to feed the MicPlexer2 and from there on went to 2 digital Dual Channel Zaxcom Recievers and one WisyCom analog Dual Channel Reciever. I wasn´t shure if that System would work or if I would get in trouble especially with the WisyCom Reciever beeing fed by the MicPlexer2. But so far everything seems to work fine without any RF loss. cheerz Urs
  3. you could go for a SoundDevices 688 which does 6 channels of 192kHz if that is enough for you. but it is a bit over your budget. I do not know if you can find a used one at 4k.
  4. hi Manuel, I have been using 4061 for the last years a lot and have 2x 4061 core in my setup since 3 months ago. To be honest I do not hear any difference when I have the lavs on actors. I have not compared them yet in AB to see if they are indeed different. And buildwise they seem to be the same as well. For narrative and interviews I would stick with the 4061 you have and if they break down buy 4061 Core if you want. Here in Europe there is no price difference between them. hope I could help Urs
  5. I have a UPK mini and modifying the plans is not the problem. I just assumed that these plans are made in that way for a reason. I already went ahead and aligned both recievers and used the freqfinder that Constantin suggested to look for intermod problems. So far there weren´t any. But I only checked randomly. I was just a bit puzzled why Wisycom would have two different layouts in two Recievers for the same TV Channel. Especcially since they both run on the same firmware version. My guess is that one is just much older than the other and Wisycom came up with a better working list in between. But I would like to know for shure. Thats just the way I am
  6. that looks like a very powerfull tool. thanks for that.
  7. Hallo everyone, i got two different Wisycom SetUps consisting of A: Wisycom MCR42S + 2x MTP40S (470-700 MHz) B: Wisycom MCR42 + 2x MTP41 (566-798MHz) I want to use them together intermod free in the same Group/TV CHannel but noticed that their frequency plans slightly differ from oneanother (See pictures attached). How can that be and can I just go and change that frequency layout from one reciever to match it to the other without getting intermodulation problems? Thanks! B: A:
  8. What works best for me is to stay polite, calm and professional. This is part of my job and if I don´t make a fuzz out of it others won´t too. If the actor feels that I am just doing my job then most of the time they feel secure. If there is actually anybody nearby making stupid remarks I just send them away. With children I ask them first if they have done this before, then let them tell me where they put the mic the last time and then I explain every step of the way and ask before I do anything. If at any given pont I get the impression that a child or adult actor feels insecure about me placing a mic I ask a woman on set to do it for me. But that is very rarely the case.
  9. Generally not a bad idea. But before I get extra weight into my System an another thing in the chain that might brake down at some point I will keep searching for a Headphone that just more suits my needs. Has anyone used Ultrasone Headphones? The Pro-900i and the Performance 880 have been described as warm, so maybe that is worth a try?
  10. I bought the DT 1770 Pro myself now. Made a few tests with it and sadly it is not what I am looking for. Stereo Image is great but this headphone is not forgiving at all. Makes sense to call it a Mastering Headphone. I thought it might be a bit more like a DT990 Pro. There I always had the feeling everything sounded a bit better than it actually was. On Set I find it sometimes hard to concentrate on the actual sound if there is anything disturbing happening. Of course that is good for finding and eliminating the source of the disturbance, but I got my HD 26 for that. What I am looking for is a Headphone that lets me keep the focus on the sound and gives me a bit more comfort. I know that that might sound a bit strange but I have exceptionally good hearing especially in high frequencies. That can be a burden from time to time because it is exhausting and shifts my focus. Anyone got a suggestion?
  11. UPDATE: Wisycom just started shipping the new PSC custom flanges. They work fine now.
  12. I am not talking about the DT 770 Pro, I am talking about the DT 1770 Pro. Got the DT770Pro myself but do not really like them. To me the HD26 is better in any way: comfy, better resolution and linearity, more depth and Stereo Image. I would like to know how the 1770 compares to that.
  13. Has anyone ever tried using the Bayerdynamic DT 1770 Pro for recording location sound? very expensive but interesting.
  14. Sennheiser HD-26 basically the same as the 25 but in a new design which is so smooth to your ears it feels like a pillow. Not joking! If you had a 26 on you will not want to buy a 25. For me these two are the best choice also because I do have pretty big ears which do not fit under DT48 for example without pain. The only bad thing about the Sennheiser is that they are too good especially in high frequencies. I tend to loose focus sometimes concentrating on background noise that I would not hear on a DT48, DT250 or any other DT. Most of the times these noises don´t even matter in the post. The Sennheiser are very clinical.

    Ursa Strap

    all the actors i have been working with like the URSA Straps best for most parts. They are soft and thin so even the costume department does not complain anymore. And the actors do not start sweating beneath as they did with the neopren or neopax. There are two situations where actros still prefer the neopax. First is the anklestrap because of the thicker material the neopax does not develop pressurepoints on the actors ankle. Some like that about the neopax. Second is when it is freezing outside and the actors are happy to have a waist belt that keeps them worm, especially the skinny once.
