    Sound Report Writer app

    Has anyone been able to connect Sound Report Writer to their Tentacle Sync E? I’m trying via Bluetooth and by hardwiring it to my phone but the app is not recognizing the Tentacle. I’ve emailed the app developer over the weekend, still waiting to hear back from them.

    Red, again

    At this point, the only time I run into a Red on set is because the DP owns the package. Thankfully most of the DP's I work with have ditched their Red's and bought an Alexa Mini. One thing you can do is have them calibrate the sensor (black shade) to run at a higher average temp. This may help a little, but if you're running longer than a half hour per take then this may be all for naught.
  3. According to the FCC papers for the TRX900 the high pass is implemented in the digital realm. If the signal flow has changed since then I haven’t been able to find documentation showing it.
  4. I like to cut the lows before they hit the A/D converter if I can, but I have been using the high pass built into the ZMT.
  5. From my personal experience, I had rf interference issues with my Tac!t cable when I used it with my DPA 4017C. It’s a bummer, I really like having a low cut in line before the signal hits my ZMT Phantom with the 4017C.

    Sound Devices Mix Pre-3 and Mix Pre-6

    Why not use the Wingman app for track naming?

    MKH40 outdoor - rycote baseball vs babyball

    I’ve used the baseball with the furry overcover on my MKH50 in light breeze and it’s been ok. Anything stronger than a breeze and I will use my baby ball.

    Tail slating isn’t an option?

    Zaxcom ZMT-Phantom 2

    Don’t let this info out on the Zaxcom Facebook page, you might have a posse of disgruntled sound mixers at your door with pitchforks and torches.

    Show me your bag

    I didn’t like the way the Stingray fit with the Orca bag, and I also found that it was taking more time to get into the harness. It was just personal preference, I see quite a few mixers using the Stingray/Orca combo and they seem to make it work for them.

    Show me your bag

    I recently switched from the Orca OR-32 to the Porta Brace AO 1.5 silent. Really liking this set up, I shed at least three pounds of bag weight and I get to use my Stingray harness again.

    The "Best client/producer/agency quotes" thread

    I once had a Junior Agency Producer ask me why he could hear himself in the background on the Comtek during a take. Thankfully I had a 1st AD on set that had no qualms about telling him in the nicest way possible how big of an idiot he was.

    Wave Agent equivalent for Quicktime files

    I use this all the time, it creates a pdf with all of the clip metadata and three thumbnail photos of the beginning, middle and end of the clip. http://mikasky.free.fr/foolcolor/foolcat.html

    DPA 4017B Vs CMIT 5U

    I second Ramallo's sentiments about DPA's ability to resist humidity. I used a 4017B for a week in a half in Sri Lanka during the rainy season and the mic preformed flawlessly.

    Red Weapon 8K Audio Issue

    Patrick, we know you're a fan of the Red camera. But it is not the responsibility of the sound mixer to make sure that the CAMERA has the correct module with professional grade audio inputs. This responsibility falls on the camera department, and to tell a group of sound mixers to ask for said module when too many times we don't even know what camera we are working with until the day of the shoot is ridiculous.
