    Thank you Jeff Wexler for another year of jwsound !

    I've been coming here since May of 2006 and yes there is a lot of information on the net but JW has to be the "go to" for any information regarding sound. I can not tell you how many times I have recomended this site to fellow sound recordist or any one interested in staring out. Thank you Jeff for making this possible for so many of us and thank you for all you continue to do in your retirement off site for the sound comunity.

    Sanken Cs-M1 new mike

    Here is a post I made in another thread. Today we have given the CS-M1 a really good run. I did a scene where we swung the on camera with the Sanken and then the off camera with the MKH 50. The CS-M1 has much more gain to it and deffinetly opens up the room more. Not in a bad way but it does have more top end to it than the 50. For sure it has more reach than a 50. In cases where I may have been tempted to reach for the wire to add a little fill on the actor starting deep and coming to camera I can let the Sanken reach for it. A very well respected mixer I know often refers to the fact that "perspective is now almost a thing of the past, well with the CS-M1 I'm now more tempted to play it. We then did the on camera again with the Sanken and the off camera with a CMIT 5U deffinetly a better match. So maybe The Sanken is more like a Schoeps. The biggest down fall is the indoor foam sock that comes with the Sanken. It is useless for any kind of quick swing or even a light swing across a room. You definietly want to beef that up. I'm using it with the Rycote INV-Lite 19. Maybe not the best mount for it but it's all my local dealer had at the time to fit it. It may be contributing to the wind noise due to the two metal rods. I know you can get a rubber dam to slide over the rods but black gaffer tape is a lot cheaper and does the same thing. I was very impressed with it out side as well. I used it in a WS 2 and found it to have a very natural sound. As many people have said before there is no "one" mic for all occasions the new Sanken CS-M1 is a great little mic and just one more tool in the drawer. You have to make the choice as to which mic works best for the scene and that particular actor.

    Sanken Cs-M1 new mike

    Sorry to hijack the recent conversation but just wanted to let people know. I have been using the CS-M1 with the Zax ZMT 3.5 Phantom 2 and have had digial intermodulation or interference. I'm told you can have cables made to get rid of this but they need to be block specific. I'm not getting it with any of my othr mics (Sennheiser, Schoeps) just the Sanken. Is anybody using the A10's and are you getting the same results? Bill

    Dual Tumbleweeds

    Could it be? The Dual Tumblweeds? DPA announces their new mic and Lectro announces they join forces with DPA to concour the European RF market. Hmm.

    Keeping current and abreast of new techniques

    Sorry to hi-jack this thread. So with all this talk of optical printing, who thinks "MOS" means Missing Optical Stripe and not what we have all come to learn over the years? Bill

    DPA 4098 Travel cases

    That's an awesome idea. I love people who think outside of the box with off the shelf items. Bill

    The best Paul McCartney interview ever

    I wonder if the sound team that do these could chime in on what the setup is? I feel like I need to take a trip to London to learn how to do car rigs.

    The Lav Mic in the Uniform

    Hi Jan, I had great success on a cop show by doing exactly what you are discribing. We had wardrobe cut a hole and we came out from behind the name tags. The name tags were velcroed on which held the mic nicely in place with some snot tape and we had the head of the mic just hidden behind the name patch. The TRX's were in the lining of the jacket that had a pocket to hold a fake kevlar vest. This ment the actor could take the jacket off and not disturb the mic. Mind you though it can be the nature of the beast if the jackets are nylon and the actor likes to swing their arms. Bill

    DPA Core 4061's

    Derek, I agree with your thoughts of the 4060. It does not have any noticeable noise floor unlike the 4098's. I have several 4060's, 4061's and 4071's. My go to lav now is the 4060 by far. The 4061 and 4071 are just another tool in the drawer. The 4061 for scenes where I know I need that little extra head room and the 4071 for scenes where I have to bury the mike a little more in the wardrobe. It's minimal yes but the size stops me from going to the 4071 more. Roundbadge in your opinion is the extra SPL worth the extra price if their is no difference in the overall sound? Or is it just as easy to set your limiters when you know you have somebody raising their voice? Bill

    DPA 4098 - first impressions

    You are correct Larry increasing the gain does not help with the signal to noise. I used to use Neumann 150's with the active goose neck which were great for years but now seem to be impossible to hide. I love my DPA 4060's, 4061's and the slims as Lavs but saddly I'm not impressed with the 4098 as a car plant. I will follow up with the distributor and see what they can do resister wise. Bill

    Podcast Microphones

    Hi Sean: You might find some useful info here http://www.dpamicrophones.com/microphones/dvice You could use the microdot to XLR adapter (DAD6001-BC) and use any mic that suits your need. Just a thought. Bill
