    14 hour day

    Hello LA and NYC brothers and sisters there's a rumor going around out in here in the rain starved desert about the IA signing off on some sort of 14 hour day rule. Is this for 600 only or is it another overly optimistic hearsay. Is it April already? Cheers and good luck for a prosperous year.

    iPhone 7 mic

    Has anyone tried any of the many external mics available for the iPhone 7 with the Lightning connector? I found a very simple audio recording app called VoiceRecorder. I like the Old School interface that looks like a cassette recorder. Do you have one that you use?

    Cos 11 repair

    Cos 11's take a beating. I have 3 that need repair; a bad connector, wire wind screen came off and a head pulled loose. What are your recommendations for places to send them in for repair?

    Zaxcom ZHD

    I'm thinking of buying a couple of Zaxcom ZHD transmitters and a RX200 receiver. I would like to have the remote recording capability. Would anyone care to comment on their experience with this setup?

    Lectrosonics IFB 1/8" connector

    I several complete Lectrosonics IFB blocks for separate feeds to director, boom and utility. I have consistent problems with the 1/8" headphone connector on the R1A. You can not take it apart in the field and service the connector. Outside here in New Mexico there is pretty much a constant wind filled with dirt and dust. It works into these connectors and makes them noisy and intermittent and fail. You have to send the receiver into to be repaired. The connector is a sealed panel mount and has to be replaced. Has anyone else had this problem and found a solution? With Respect

  14. The ‘Star Wars’-Inspired History of the Iconic THX Audio Logo
  15. Enthralling history for anybody interested in sound recording, I heard that Kudelski got into making custom spy and satellite communications equipment. He made so much more money than with manufacturing Nagras, so he moved on. Wasn't there a rumor out there that Nagra had an updated stereo analog machine about the size and weight of the IS that they had prototyped and were thinking of making. We all know that the analog recording will always have its special place in history. Too bad it can't be carried on. Look at what Kodak is doing to keep Film alive.

    Powered Antennas(650s) and 2 Venues

    It is my understanding from a mixer friend who has run more than 100 wireless at a time for political conventions and other huge shows that the advantage of a powered antenna is when you have really long cable runs. He was able to cover an entire convention hall with 2 shark fins mounted in the ceiling with hundreds on feet of antenna cable.

    Hide a user

    I signed in, went to Manage Ignore Prefs, put in the members name, selected ignore posts, signature and messenger, saved the changes. The Members name is there with Hide under each selection but I still see him all over the board. Is he the moderator of the JWSound so you can't get rid of him?

    Best lav as plant mic

    I use the Sennheiser MKE 2. I have a Tan and Black ready to go with a Lectrosonics 400 or 450 transmitter. Mixes well with both the Sennheiser MKH 50 and the Schoeps MK41. I had the MKE's from when I used them to replace Sony ECM 50's for wireless lavs. Still work great.
