  1. Hi there Im looking for a website that'll give me step by step instructions with pictures on how to make low profile XLR to 3.5 mm cables. Please post any links if you know of them thanks.
  2. Because I dont have a tape measurer.
  3. Thanks what size caps did you use?
  4. Today I went and got me a K-Tec Airo boom pole this is my first boom pole so dont roast me yet.There is one thing that I'm nitpicking about and I think I have a right to do so, The end cap is a threaded metal piece that has a slot for the XLR cable to exit. Is there a way to replace that say with an Ambient Recording Rubber Bumper since the bottom of the original endcap is all scuffed up now (yes I did it but not on purpose). Are there any other options to protect the bottom of my new boom pole besides yellow gaffers tape.
  5. I plan on using the MixPre 3 on a tripod mainly but wouldn't mind the ability to mount it on a table top tripod. I can see the MixPre 3 being connected to my computer as an interface hence the table top tripod. I would venture to guess that 2-3 hours would be the max running time needed for anything I use the MixPre 3 for unless circumstances change.
  6. I have the MixPre 3 and Im looking for the most compact/cost effective way to power the unit. I know that there are at least a dozen ways to power the MixPre 3 from battery sleds to Hawkwoods HiRose/L Mount adapters Im trying to decide which would work best in my case. Does anyone have any experience with any of the solutions below, Im currently using a Samsung S8 phone charger connected to the MixPre 3. I'm a YouTuber mainly so Im not mobile but it would be great not to limit myself and be able to change position of the tripod occasionally or even go mobile if needed. I've listed the top solutions for my workflow which would choose in my situation if you have other options feel free to mention them. 4 AA Lithium Ion batteries for my current 4AA battery sled 30$/ $30 for AA battery charger (Runtime could be an issue) (Compact) MX-8AA - $65 + $40 8 Lithium Ion Battery + $40 AA battery charger (Runtime 4 hours unsure) (Compact solution) Hawkwoods L Mount $145 + $80 battery + Battery charger $60 (Doesn't look like it'll fit under camera lens if mounted together) Anker PowerCore+ 20100 USB-C $65.99 (Difficult to mount on a tripod) (Cheap, good for mobile roaming) Anker Quick Charge 3.0 $12 (Needed to charge PowerCore+) (Great for stationary shooting)
  7. I'm looking for a bag/carrying case for my MixPre 3. I don't want your typical audio case that professionals carry their gear in. I'm looking for a non descript kind of bag that will protect my gear. Does anyone have recommendations that I can take a look at thanks. I actually like the Portabrace ARDR05 bit think its a bit too small for the MixPre-3.
  8. Thanks for the advice turns out the diy trrs-trs adapter I purchased on ebay is faulty. I re-connected the adapter to the RODE Smartlav+ wiggled it a bit and got a signal out the lav. I plan on purchasing a proper RODE sc3 adapter which should give me a functional lav mic. EDIT: I purchased a RODE SC3 TRRS-TRS adapter and the SmartLav+ works great with the MixPre 3.
  9. I actually downloaded the manual for the MixPre 3 on my phone, work and home PC.
  10. I recently purchased a MixPre 3 and was hoping to use my RODE SmartLav+ and RODE SmartLav and was pretty surprised when they both didn't work. I just want to make sure before I sell one of my SmartLavs that they indeed will not work with my MixPre 3. I also have a TASCAM DR60D that I used the lavs with successfully so I dont understand why the Smartlavs wont work with the MixPre 3. I've been trying with the adapter since the mics are TRRS, can anyone tell me why the SmartLavs wont work with the MixPre 3 thanks.
