  1. Only thing huge about this is price the run time and AAA choice make it a non starter for me to even consider
  2. I work with two people that have FX9 and was able to change it to both channels with no issue
  3. I have a Mix pre 6 II with NA on it and an 833 with NA on it. It works very well for productions that are going to do zero audio post. I use it regularly for news live shots and corporate interview style productions. Even in a decent sounding room using it a -2 helps dry the room and make the audio more present. In noisy news live shot situations I have dialed it up to -8 as well. It is worth the money
  4. I hate shots but it does seem like in the last few years the needles have gotten sharper and smaller I haven't felt my flu shot last few years at all
  5. Email Tino@ktekpro.com directly he will get right back to you or call 760 727-0593 They are a very small company but provide great service
  6. Call Audio Dept in Burbank I think Gene Martin has a solution for this. Or you could take a Np1 battery gut the inside of it then install a connector on back of battery to power it
  7. Jerry at Lectro repair can do it as well https://jayceecomms.com/services-policies/
  8. This is an issue with power system and unbalanced inputs won't blame the 833 too much. I would suggest trying another power system to see if problem persists.
  9. I have used my COSI at the beach and in many windy conditions it has yet to fail me
  10. I would consider a COSI for your MINI CMIT. I have one for mine and it is great for all situations along with very durable
  11. 100% I had a interview job last month for a semi regular client that would normally be DP, Sound 2 PA, Make Up,Gaffer and 2-3 clients. The shoot was DP and Sound that was it. They tried to cry poor when in fact they are saving tons of money and complained to me that I was charging them a rental fee for my laptop since I had to manage the Zoom
  12. I would ask whatever audio dealer you use to see if they have a better way to contact them.
  13. Haven't worked with FX9 yet but did you try turning the timecode output level up or down in the JB1 menu? Normally the default is fine but I have had to adjust for some RED cameras in past
  14. Yep I have talked to Gordon and Dave ( who does all the firmware) told them it is very confusing still. My advice is to call service for help because if you load the wrong "branch" of firmware you can brick the unit.
  15. Gear Acquisition Syndrome we never stop buying gear as sound mixers
  16. If I was building a starter kit this is what I would do: $2000. Sound Devices 633 Used with bag $1400 LEctro SRB RX with bottom Plate (2) 1600-1800 for both Lectro SMV or SMQV TX (2) $600 for both Sanken Cos 11 lav mics $800 Saken CSM-1 shotgun mic $400 Ktek boom poles and shockmount $200 Used BDS system with cables $200-$300 Used NP1 batteries and charger $1000 for Misc cables media headphones etc $8000-$8500 for a pro level basic kit If you can set your budget at 10K Then get some timecode boxes and make some used Comtek IFB Remember cry once buy once buy good quality stuff
  17. I have been working on small corporate shoots just myself, camera and talent everyone else remotely. Mostly boom only stuff Also been doing some news work which is the same everyone remote but the 3 of us outdoors only boom only for interviews
  18. I am the person who approached him about making a simple version that could do Sleep and Unsleep and Rec on and Rec off. Many times when I am strapped into ENG mode my hands are full and I wanted a quick way to use the 2 most common RM commands I use. I have been using it very successfully the last few weeks. I also wanted a way to Sleep and unsleep without pulling my phone out on certain jobs where clients ask us to not use our phones on set.
  19. I have a Cinela COSI for my Mini CMIT and have used a friends Sanken CSM-1 it is the best thing for eng work period is just as good as a full blimp but the weight of a softee with an outstanding shockmount built in. If I didn't already Own to many mics I would but a CSM-1 My addiction (2) MKH 416 (2) MKH 50 (1) MKH 40 (1) Mini CMIT I used to also own (2) CMIT (1) CS3E (1) MKH 60
  20. For the price the Sanken CS-M1 at $895 would be a great choice similar in performance to a MKH 50 very small and robust. https://www.sankenmicrophones.com/production/shotgun/cs-m1/
  21. I had my first few days of work since early March this past week. It was a multi day corporate interview job with some broll for a client I have worked for in the past. The crew was just myself and the dp. Production rented a large home for us to have multiple interview set up options and the ability for each of us to have our own restroom to use. Ample PPE was provided and outside on the porch of the home we had hand sanitizer along with masks for subjects to wear until we were ready to roll if they didn't have one. We had the producer on one laptop to interview along with the agency/client on a group zoom call to listen after each block of questions the producer would mute herself and then talk to the agency folks. Everyday when we were done someone would come clean the bathrooms and common areas of the home. The DP and I rotated waiting for them to finish to lock up this was all within our normal 10 hour day. Client provided us with $35 a day each of per diem for a walkaway lunch and to buy our own crafty since none was provided. Overall it was very enjoyable as we did not have anyone trying to micromanage us during shoot and were never rushed. This job would have normally been a full crew so I had to help the DP out more then usual but we had ample time to do so.
  22. about 5 hours for single battery SMWB model
