  1. New experiment with the F8N in internal free run mode. This is a test to see if the wordclock running the A to D's and the LTC generator are locked to the same clock. I took the LTC out port and wired it to the mic input and let it record it's own timecode for an hour. I used libltc's dumpltc.exe program to extract the locations of the frames in the sound file and then I plotted the rate of change of LTC relative to the samples using some Python that I came up with. Drop frame timecode arithmetic sucks. Anyhow, the slope of that line was indistinguishable from 1 out to
  2. I located a Zoom f8n. It will generate LTC that is internally locked to its wordclock. Done. Previous gear to eBay.
  3. On the dynamics, I did use a Heil PR40 for my main pair on everything for the longest time. It was alright to good at everything below 8 to 11 khz. I probably should just get one for bass reinforcement. I imagine the RE320 is similar. Still, I probably should test a PR40 or equivalent dynamic versus a regular omni condenser in this bass-support role. I had a MKH 8040 pair out for fireworks one year and it was a no-go as a main pair. I think I was overloading the preamp in the capsule or the equivalent. In post I was not able to salvage anything, too sensitive. I would n
  4. Is a pair of DPA 4060's in a blimp close enough? I some of those on hand. I used to own some MKH8040's (cardiod) and those were neat for everything but booms in the wind. Good idea, I don't need the high frequencies at all so I could go wild with the windscreen. maybe 10 inches of foam and a fur on the outside would be called for. It looks like I'm going to Michaels [a craft store in the U.S.A.]
  5. Hi all, does anyone have any ideas for an effects mic for recording just the bass in a medium windy environment? I have a separate conventional pair for everything above 70 Hz that I love but by the time I get done rolling off the wind noise there isn't a satisfying thump any more. I record a lot of deep fireworks-explosion type sounds at distance and I am looking for something to fill out the data for the LFE channel. I am far from the explosions so think "lightning at 1.0 mile" loud rather than "lightning at 150 feet"-type loud. The problem is coming up with something
  6. Update: I put together an experiment where I fed the composite black into a $12 composite to HDMI converter. I am certain that the HDMI converter was creating a signal before I plugged the composite black in so, consequently, it is extremely unlikely that the HDMI was in sync with composite black and the clockit. I think I am just going to send Zoom or sound devices some money for a recorder that can output LTC itself. Thanks all,
  7. Thanks for the comment! Yeah, I guess I could split the audio file on a regular basis, let the editing software align using LTC, and then just fill any gaps with room tone. I should just get a Sound Devices ****T for the week. If they come out with a MixPre 3T, I would be all over that. I used to have a 702 without the timecode board. I was so close.
  8. Here's what I have: Ambient Lockit 202CT and a Tascam DR-701D recorder. Here's what I want: I want a LTC audio signal that is drift free (relative to the wordclock) of the BWF in the DR-701D. Why I want this: I need to make an 8 hour continuous audio recording that can be easily(ish) synced in post to 5+ cameras that are all turning on and off at random. Each camera will record the LTC to an audio track. The duration of each video track will be so short that the difference between each cameras clock and the wordclock/LTC is sub frame. Plan A: If I took the
