  1. Resurrecting an older thread here - I have one of these carts and I'd like to replace the stock casters. How do you get them off? They look like they ought to just thread off but I can't seem to figure out how to do it. [edit] and of course 30 seconds after posting for help I figured it out. They're held in place by the bolts attached to the shelves.
  2. If you're on Facebook there are a couple of pretty good Cantar-focused user groups, "Aaton Cantar-X" might the best for your specific needs.
  3. Thanks for the heads up. I'll evaluate it and if it's too noisy for me I can return it and get the 30.
  4. Stereo recording is typically either music (for which I'll use the Schoeps pair) or ambience. I hadn't really considered an all-in-one, but the MKH-418S sounds pretty appealing. I'll pick one up and see how that works for me.
  5. I've been using my Schoeps mk8 for mid/side recording, but I'd like to find a reasonable figure 8 mic that's a little more suitable for harsh environments. I'm currently looking at the ate308 or the MKH30, are there other figure 8's I should include in the search?
  6. Will there be a VOD available afterwards? I have a matinee show that day but this sounds very interesting.
  7. I had a lot of trouble discerning the front from the back, but if you flip the windkiller SE inside out you can see that the front has a mesh circle insert. Getting the orientation correct and ensuring that there's some space at the front makes a big difference for me.
  8. For this sort of application, what gauge wire would work best?
  9. I talked to my local theater sound guy last night and he pointed me to ripnroll.com. He recommended (and uses) their "Disposable Microphone Covers" which you can get in bulk (100/500/1000 packs).
  10. Where's a good place to source unlubricated condoms in bulk?
  11. I use a couple of the "Orca Lifts" with my 833 in addition to the top velcro loops.
  12. Have any of you fine folks tried reading LTC from a raspberry pi? I'm mildly curious to see if I could make a timecode display driven by a Nanolockit.
  13. Love it, thanks Larry (and Gordon and all the Fanatics). It's probably worth noting that I have no actual purpose in mind with this project, I was just curious what tricks I could make it do.
  14. Wise words indeed. When diving under the covers, you're always risking unintended consequences. (Frankly I'm surprised I haven't gotten a note from someone at Lectro asking me to take this down yet...)
  15. Trawling through the Wireless Designer help files, it seems that a fair number of the Venue command set works on the SRc. I've gotten the battery telemetry queries in the reference doc now.
  16. Most of those are spot on, but sp and p don't appear to do anything on the SRc, and txbatt shows the battery type setting for the transmitter rather than the battery level.
  17. AS NOTED BELOW, any use of this information in entirely AT YOUR OWN RISK and may damage your equipment. Being a huge nerd I simply had to try connecting in to my SRc via serial. I haven't had any luck finding a command reference from Lectro but I've been able to get it talking to my mac over USB, and I've figured out the serial equivalents of most of the menu items. I'll attach what I've found so far. The things I can't yet get to happen are IR sync, scanning, and smart tune. Some or all of this may be wrong, this is just an afternoon's hacking project. Feel free to correct me where needed. SRc (1).txt
  18. judging by the teaser photo currently on Instagram, it looks like a pair of transmitters.
  19. I've heard the distinctive sound of the sharpening of tumbleweed harvesting knives. Looking forward to the harvest!
  20. Might be worth taking a look at Film Devices' battery sled. I've got a couple of those on my mixercage rig for the mini and they're slick.
  21. Is there a good wind protection item out there for something along the lines of a DPA 4097 micro shotgun?
  22. Now why didn't I think of that... I'll email them straight away.
  23. My antenna for the M-216 Option P7 Comtek seems to be wobbly, and whenever it moves I get crackling on the rx side. Is there a good fix for this?
