  1. As far as I can see by the images , it appears to be an older Sanken COS 11.
  2. I also prefer an external cable on a long pole but internal on a shorter one (10' of less), especially for ENG/ docu run & gun.
  3. I also do not have any experience with that particular model mixer. I have used the Midas large format analog consoles in clubs and concert venues.. I'm sure there is a mode to monitor the L-R output someplace. In my experience, it was budget consoles and mixers that had global or groups of Phantom Power inputs. Balanced wireless receiver connections should not be a problem with Phantom Power, just like a balanced dynamic mic, but unbalanced gear can be a problem, for instance the Sennheiser EK series portable receiver is unbalanced.
  4. I recall dB and Studio Sound among others.
  5. +1. Even with a simple Comtek, I get folks asking why they do not hear anything.. (It's not powered up)
  6. Thanks, I was not aware of a flexible cable option... though I don't recall a cable noise issue. I prefer the sound of the (Tram like) OST 801 and 802. The TL-40 has a flatter frequency response than the 800 series, so it's use is limited somewhat. The TL-40 also has a rather low maximum SPL, so that has to be taken into consideration occasionally. A decent mic though, but one should have alternate options.
  7. "Is the Pro Tools Certification often requested in the US?" Not that I'm aware of, this applies to music recording as well. Can't hurt to have it though.
  8. https://jwsoundgroup.net/index.php?/forum/23-want-to-buy-want-to-sell/ However, you must have more posts to meet the initial requirements. Buyers may be reluctant even with the minimum. Otherwise there's eBay and Reverb. Most of the location sound shops take consignments as well.
  9. Most consoles have +4dB 1/4" TRS line level outputs and/or XLRs for the mains. subs, direct, matrix and aux. outputs, I would carry the proper cables or adapters for either. I also carry isolation transformers, but I frequently interface with live sound systems. The 1st generation F8 line level inputs must be 1/4", the XLRa are mic level only The F8n XLRs are mic/line switchable. FWIW, If I were mixing it, I would prefer six pre-fader direct outs with a live stereo pair for the audience/room.
  10. Regarding the Oktava 012. As I stated many times here and elsewhere, Oktavas are not created equal. Many of us get handpicked Oktavas from the Sound Room. I have a matched stereo pair which sound very good, though I have not used them lately for production sound since I have better (more expensive) alternatives. It should be noted that the Sound Room does perform the 'Dorsey' type mod AFAIK.. Bill Sitler and Micheal Joly are the usual go-to sources for this, though the modifications are different in some respects. Bill Sitler offers a DIY parts kit. Micheal Joly has modification options. Even with the mods, the 012 still has an inherent low sensitivity, (10mV) which can be an issue with lower end preamps
  11. I have not yet soldered a Lemo, sounds like a nightmare. I have connected 5 or 6 of the Hirose power plugs though (with and without a hangover) They are no party either. Prior to buying a LED headset magnifier, I wore two pairs of 3.25 back to back reading glasses for my aging eyes.
  12. I never use the same password and currently have 170 entries in Password Safe, which I've using for quite few years now. "Password Safe allows you to safely and easily create a secured and encrypted user name/password list. With Password Safe all you have to do is create and remember a single "Master Password" of your choice in order to unlock and access your entire user name/password list." It can also create passwords with user settable parameters.. I imported the data file to StrongBox to use on my iOS device.
  13. I'm sure you have checked it already, but the 'AF Out' setting could be set low, particularly if feeding line level which also do not affect the meters' modulation. Otherwise, If the meters do indicate RF and normal audio activity, I would then suspect the output cable assembly. If that checks out, the output jack and/or it's internal connection. If I recall correctly, the G2/3/4 EK-100 portable receiver's output is unbalanced, so the 3.5 plugs ring terminal is floated, The XLR pins 1 and 3 are tied together to the shield wire
  14. Frank Filipetti and George Massenburg discussed mic shootouts and choosing a mic in this months Pro Sound News. https://www.prosoundnetwork.com/pro-sound-news-blog/the-metalliance-report-how-to-choose-the-right-microphone-education-recording-pro-audio-engineer-microphone
  15. I used the legendary Klark-Teknik graphic EQs in the music biz for years prior to working sound for picture, I would not hesitate using any of their products if applicable.
