    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.

    Arriflex 416 and Timecode

    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.

    VTR jobs/gear rental

    The VTR guys that I know around NYC do provide client monitors and directors monitors, but they are well compensated for them. If production is renting a camera package I'm sure they can get a couple monitors thrown in for peanuts.

    Sooooo new at this...

    If you're just going to be using the one boom mic, I'd run the boom into the MP-1 and then run the MP-1 into the Tascam. Even if the Tascam pre's are an improvement over the Roland, the Sound Devices pre's will still be noticeably better. And having the MP-1s limiter is a nice little bit of insurance.

    I second the high sensitivity version, I'm using them with the TRX900LANC's and have been really happy with the results.

    Dredging this up as I need to find out what size screw is used for the adjusting screws. Thanks.
