    Recording music performances on set

    Seems silly that something music driven cannot allow visible mikes. 1- Do they want a good music recording? 2- Can it be recorded and done to playback? Questions need to be asked! Mike

    New to Nagra!!

    I designed/built and fitted a 50Hz crystal source into my one so that it could be used as a single track sync recorder. I then transfered the audio and 50 Hz into my Nagra 4.2 and onto 1/4 inch tape. mike

    New IFB headphones from Halter Technical

    Looks like a great product. I have 14 IFB units that are constantly left around after a shoot sometimes on the floor so the price is relevant versus the quality for people who don't care! mike

    Abisonic Microphones

    I guess you could question that about any microphone. You place it in it's foam lined box and that's it. I flew to Italy with my SP200 and travelled to Calabria to record and orchestra without problems. On returning to New Zealand it was then hired for 2 weeks to record sound fx in Antarctica. No problem! mike
