  1. Indeed, these are very inventive boxes and Deity is breaking new ground. What I'd like to see if it is possible, is some papers on the topic of 2.4G wireless that helps us know when and how to use it. UHF is no panacea, but manufacturers have given us papers on the issues with UHF, they have given us tools to scan the spectrum, they have given us tables to get around the problem. It would be helpful to have some materials that allow us to plan our 2.4G use.
  2. I don't know if it's a problem or not. I don't understand RF. It's all to spacey for me. I'd like to read a paper on this topic but I can't find any. It's a matter of understanding how each wireless device works and it's pros and cons. 2.4G wireless is very successful and shouldn't be written off. It's just a matter of understanding what works and what doesn't. The more you know, the better you can use your tools. Why not have 2.4G and UHF in your kit?
  3. Well, there's the rub. 2.4Ghz wifi was intended to be a bursty transmission system for computing devices; sending packets in bursts while sharing bandwidth and spectrum. I expect the 13 overlapping channels were not forseen to be used as they are today. In order to send video or audio, a channel has to be used continuously. When using 2.4G wifi in this manner, there are only 4 non-overlapping channels. There's a diagram showing this in the wiki below. I haven't found any papers that explain how to expect 2.4G devices behave in various conditions. From the wi

    Anna, the reason for Benjamin's response is that your post is highly suspect to be a troll post or an amateur no one wants to talk to or the fact that this question has been covered a million times or if you're on this forum, you should know the answer to the question. So I'd suggest that you search this site for the many posts discussing the wide variety of ways to do what you are asking. Every mixer has their own tricks to hiding lavs with any number of types of tape, foam, and other widgets. The number of possibilities are extensive and your description of the clothing doesn't begin to help
  5. I'm going to buy the CMC 1 also for the same reason. I'm not a fan of specialty cable setups like that on the Osix. The connector adds bulk and weight which defeats the whole purpose of the CMC 1. If I went with a Cinela, I'd cut off the XLR connector and cable, which means I'm not going to buy the Cinela. I haven't decided what suspension I'm going to use. I plan to connect my boom cable directly to the CMC-1 (rt. angle XLR).
  6. The next questions are: - How many LED watts do you think you need or can you budget? - What is your power source? 12V? Goosenecks are ok, but they tend to be pretty low lumens. I use a 12V mixing console light that is mounted via XLR. I made up my own mount. It's fine for my bag/small cart, but I don't think it's enough for what you may have in mind. Some of these could be adapted to a baby pin. https://www.amazon.com/s?k=12v+led+gooseneck&ref=nb_sb_noss_2
  7. A long LED light bar presents obvious issues when using an articulating arm. Why do you have a preference for the LED strip? Would a single light work if it was bright enough? I'm thinking there are plenty of gooseneck and other articulating lights available that can be adapted to the cart. How is the cart constructed? That helps understand what sort of mountings will work with the cart.
  8. I agree on all points. I don't like musicals. There I was, watching this movie and never realized I was watching a musical.
  9. Ahh, you RF guys. I always admired you. In my first job working on microwave radar jammers for aircraft that fly above 80,000' (there's only one), I'd see these guys come up with the oddest widgets. It was always J space to me. I stuck with the ones and zeros. I always felt it if you can't do RF, you do analog and if you can't do analog you do digital and if you can't do digital you sell real estate. That sounds novel. You should patent it.
  10. I've been sold on right angle connectors for a lot of cables since a notebook PC I had came with a right angle power connector. It saved me many times from breaking the connector on the PCB.
  11. That was Harve Presnell that sang Maria. Wonderful. Lee sang Wandering Star. When I heard him sing that in Paint Your Wagon I almost fell off my seat. I play it quite often through the years. He really didn't want to do it, but it's a classic. I like how they picked a key that made his vocal chords rattle.
  12. The easy way to do it is to use the 1x2 profile (as shown in your picture) which has a hole though the middle of it that will take a solid rod though it. In that picture, where the rod comes out (you don't need the end cap that is shown in the picture), add as many washers as needed to provide clearance from the cart (it depends on how far your wheel axle sticks out. Mine uses 2 washers). On the outside of the wheel, put another washer and drill a hole in the axle for a cotter pin on the outside of the washer. Very simple and just requires a metal saw and a drill. It looks like a
  13. If I can piggyback on to Trey's inquiry, which one's are the least susceptible to RF interference?
  14. You've hit on the weak point of the table. I pondered that point for a long time before making the table and never came up with a solution I like. I thought I would use it a while and see if anything clicks. I like your velcro suggestion a lot. It works, but there's no way it is going to stay there if you move the cart. I never intended that it would. Even standing still, if someone bumps into it, there it goes. I've also thought about putting a raised edge on the back side to keep things from rolling off (my cart has a slight backwards lean on purpose), but I've resisted that be
