  1. @henrimic Can you tell a little bit more about your experience with Schoeps mics in the rain forest, please? I have an upcoming project in very humid weather conditions and prefer the sound of Schoeps. But the best sounding mics don't mean anything, when the are not working. A few mouth ago I had a call with Schoeps regarding this seeming humidity "problem" and they said, their mics don't have much more problems with humidity then others. But – if I understood it right – with their internal voltage specifications, I could occur that you hear air ionization in form of crackling
  2. Sounds interesting just using lavs. How I can find more about it?
  3. Hello, I'm a Wisycom user and I always get a bit jealous when I hear that the sound of digital systems is supposed to be nicer. But Wisycom also has some practical advantages that I don't think have been mentioned yet: The MCR54 is supposed to have even better filters. Do you know the walk test of Rycom? The TX also have very long battery life. For my documentary shoots, the 20mW setting on the MTP40S (non NB) is often enough for me and with that I get up to 12-14h with eneloop pro. Also the bandwidth of 470-663MHz I have not seen with any other TX, whi
  4. Thanks everybody! Maybe Ambient is currently developing what I was looking for: https://logger.ambient.de
  5. Hi everyone, I‘m considering to finish my next documentary in Dolby Atmos for theatrical screenings. But this is my first time and I have not yet any experience recording on location sound beyond double M/S. To go more in to detail what I‘m planning: at this project I‘m the director and the sound recordist at the same time. My cinematographer and I will be shooting on an tropical island at the beach and the ocean - above and under water - as well as in the tropical forest. The under water part is very small, so my focus lys on the beach and the tropical forest. We will fo
  6. Is there any word of pricing yet?
  7. https://wisycomusa.com/product/mcr54/ 2,5 Watts max. are amazing!!
  8. https://en-de.neumann.com/kmr-81-d I was very curious to read that digital microphones could be used to achieve an even better M/S setup, but when I read on the Neumann website that everything might be discontinued, it made me wonder. Does anyone know the reason for that? And if you would to use a Sonosax R4+, for example, would you still have all the benefits that were mentioned?
  9. Hi folks, I'm new to the forum and hope I'm right here with my question: I'm a documentary filmmaker/director who is doing more and more his own sound. I've experiences with a 788T and a 633 and was using the sound report feature. But while shooting I always wanted to add a marker to the exact TC in that moment, so that I'm able to review this marker later – after a long shooting day with long takes – and add notes to all the markers. This notes would be very helpful for postproduction. I guess I'm not using the full potential of todays mixers/recorders. But maybe some of you guys are ow
