  1. Hey guys, thanks a lot for the tips! Will look into new antennas. wish you both a nice weekend! k
  2. Hi guys, I bought a pair of old Audio RMS 2000 Rx-Tx. I'm experiencing noise bursts/dropouts (see sound example) as soon as I move 3-4 meters away from the transmitter. Any ideas what might be causing this? The frequency range is 507.125/507.625 The antennas look pretty battered, do you think it would help to replace them? Thanks in advance for any tips! bests, Koen soundcloud link RMS2000 test_1.WAV
  3. Dear all, I recently watched "Barton Fink" (Coen Brothers-1991), pretty much by accident : I found a box of old DVD's on the street a few months ago and I'm watching them one by one without looking up what they're about beforehand. 2 min into the film I smiled a broad smile and thought "wow, this is why I love sound in film". Not very surprisingly, the sound supervisor was none other than Skip Lievsay. I thought of the following : I would like to start a thread which compiles a list of great-sounding films/series/can even be specific scenes. This could be for what
  4. Dear all, To power my mixpre-6 I am using Samsung NPF-960 batteries. Since a few weeks it seems the batteries aren't charging properly : - after a night of charging the battery indicator on the mixpre6 isn't all the way into the green, and the indicator jumps around sometimes between half-full and three-quarters-full. As if the Mixpre can't figure out how much power is left in the NPF - on the charger itself, while charging, the % indicator continually goes up & back down when I insert a battery : 60%-70%-80-90-60-70-80-90-.... Do you think this probl
  5. Hi guys, some great insights in this discussion! @The Immoral Mr Teas , if I may ask, could you elaborate on what you said about MS not sitting nicely with multichannel encoding? I'd be very interested in hearing your thoughts about this. Personally, I've always found the stereo image of M/S recordings (especially of ambiences) a bit "weird" or "unnatural", for reasons I can't really grasp. I often have this feeling that there's a clear center image, combined with a L-R stereo field that sounds as if it's "behind" my ears, rather than in front, and that (even when reducing the S
  6. Dear Doug, thanks for your thoughts!

I'm having a hard time choosing between the sennheiser mkh30 and the neumann ka120... They're both great, and in an MS setup with the Sennheiser 8040 as Mid-mic t
  7. Dear all, I would like to share with you a comparison I made between 2 M/S setups : 1) Sennheiser 8040 (M) + Senn MKH 30 (S) 2) Sennheiser 8040 (M) + Neumann KMA 20 (S) A noisy afternoon in a city park - recording was made yesterday. I used a mixpre-6 to record, low cut at 80. Format is 96k, 24b Since the Sennheiser mkh30 has more output than the Neumann (about 3-4db), I adjusted the gain of the mkh30 in post. mp3 and FLAC files here :https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1aWROVVwZsagyaB8oTKPbR0cod5WA7-MT?usp=sharing I have m
  8. Dear all, thanks for all your help and insight! Thanks ramallo for sharing your opinion on the Rode, that's very helpful. Thanks to Cristian, henrimic and Mr. teas for pointing out the noise floor of some of the less expensive fig8 options : since I record very quiet ambiences or sounds quite often, it would be unfortunate to end up compromising the noise levels just to gain the added surround channels. @ Cristian - I'm afraid a double ortf schoeps setup is way out of my means though As an alternative to DMS I have been toying with the idea of adding another k
  9. Dear JWsoundgroup, first of all, this forum has been an amazing source of information for me in the past months - really the best forum I know on the web, so thanks to all members for that first time posting here so bear with me I'm checking options for a portable/sturdy surround/multichannel recording setup. I have an ORTF Sennheiser mkh8040 setup with a rycote, and 2 DPA 4060's that I have been using until now as a guerilla/far-from-perfect quad setup, in which the 8040 pair is the front pair, and a spaced array of the 4060's as the back pair
