    Help - Flashing Freq on SRb???

    So today I encountered something I’ve never seen on my SRb. I was using them in dual mode and everything was working fine. Talent left set with their TXs still on, out of range, and then came back to set. Channel 2 had mysteriously stopped passing audio. I thought it was the Tx, but I tuned channel 1 to channel 2’s freq and it was picking it up fine. The odd thing is when I go to the channel 2 freq page on the SRb, the number is flashing, channel 1 doesn’t do this and my other SRbs don’t do this regardless if they are picking up a Tx signal or not. It’s not a pilot tone thing or compatibility thing. What does this flashing frequency mean? To add to the oddness, I powered it on and off many times which didn’t help. Once I got home and powered it up again, it is fine, flashing stopped. Any ideas?

    Anyone else been playing with this on Nomad?

    Sound Devices Mix Pre 6 With Zax wireless

    Is the input audio on the IFB200 different than the CL? I can barely get the MP series to register usable audio on the CL. When I send tone from my MP3, I barely get a blip on the CL screen... am I missing something as far as bumping up the level?

    Zaxcom TRXCL3

    I wonder if there is any possibility to upgrade single block CL's to WB...

    2.4 GHz amp in bag

  6. I have both Lectro and Zax units. I have found that in highly reflective environments (lots of flat metals surfaces), the Zaxcom units tend to struggle more compared to Lectro. You will have full signal but still sometimes get random drops. ZHD handles this a bit better depending on the setting.
  7. I've had good results with the NC transmitters. That's one of the things I've noticed the most between the Lectrosonics transmitters in the Zaxcom transmitters. When you are in a situation where there is a large dynamic range with what you are recording, going from whispers to yelling for example, the Zaxcom transmitters do a much better job with the louder sounds.

    Good MS Recording Example

    Thanks everyone, these are awesome and I will definitely share some of these. I noticed the majority of these recordings are nature sounds, does anyone know where some cool examples of maybe some sports type things might be? I'm just thinking out loud of many different types of examples. Thanks again!
  9. Does anyone here have a great example of an MS recording they did? Maybe something that made it to a cool video or something that shows how interesting and enriching an MS recording can be compared to just a mono file?

    Mic plexer 2

    I think it would be awesome if the next version of the micplexer had two filters in it so they could be used in different blocks if one wanted to do so.

    Show me your bag

    Whoa! How did you do that?! Did you have to cut any of the material? Any chance on a closer picture?

    new plugOn TRX from Zaxcom

    I agree Neverclip would have been nice especially for the HM version. I'm thinking specifically on a few jobs where I have had a stand-up comedy presenter go from almost whispering to full out yelling. Neverclip shines in scenarios like this.

    Zaxcom digital bag questions

    Many of us are still hoping that re-record will happen soon. It also might be possible for powerroll to go down to 25mW with the new txs, but not implemented yet. Open to correction.

    G3 system as "Comtek" IEM

    I've played around with the Lectros, Comteks, Zaxcom ERXs, and the Sennheiser G3 IEMs. I settled on the Sennheisers sounding the best in my opinion. I thought the others had less quality whether that be hissy, or thiner sounding. But there are even differences between some of my G3s, and I assume some need to go in for a tuneup.

    New Zaxcom small transmitter - ZMT

    Did a test in the beginning. Left it running with a mic and got aittle over 5 hrs at 50mW and with the lock screen engaged. But I do want to test it again.
