  1. I had a simillar problem with noise.It was G3 EK 100 (+12) to SQN (line level ) to Marantz PMD661 (line level).When I set squelch on G3 to medium the noise stopped. Also try keep as much distance as possible between the receiver and the mixer/recorder.Good luck!
  2. How about having the manual installed in the machine. Easily accessed,updated etc. Neil
  3. Watch It on you tube, some nice back story from Mr Joe Perez. His parents are in the film. Really nice work by CinePost .Thanks. Neil
  4. No!!Its a big mistake to reheat them. Just have them cold with plenty butter! Works perfectly for toast also! Enjoy. Neil
  5. Hi Brent, My guess.It may just be M/S doing its thing so to speak with regard to sum and difference. In an M/S recording as I understand it, right ® is the result of M-S (ie the difference between what the mics are hearing at any one point in time) , In this case because the low frequency sound waves are so big the signal could be arriving at both mics at the same time. That is to say the Mid and Side signals are in fact the same and only signal at that moment in time. Left (L) will add the signal to itself ( M+S) to give the sum,which results in double the original signal. Right ® will subtract the signal from itself (M-S) to give the difference which in this case results in zero or no signal! which is what you are getting. Good Luck!Neil
  6. I use the Schoeps lc60 with MKH8040 and MKH8050.No more handling noise!Try one of these or the Tacit cables with your MKH40,Im sure it will help..its Valentines Day, you two should make up!- http://www.schoeps.de/en/products/lc
  7. +1 I only know of Scott Koue through reading his (oft times inspirational) posts re sound for picture on another forum.. a great sound guy all the way I would say. Regards,Neil
  8. It may be low frequency overload.I don't have a Mixpre myself so I can't say if the high pass filters in it can handle the 8060. I use a Schoeps LC60 (18dB/octave @ 60Hz) and that works fine with my 8060.There is also the new cable from Rycote with the built in high pass filter. Regards,Neil
  9. Hi All, Some good info from a Canon pdf in a post here a while back. On page 6, it mentions the difference between the 24p and 23.98p settings on the C300. Regards,Neil Original post:
  10. Hi, It seems Canon have a firmware update for 7D on the way.It includes manual gain control. www.usa.canon.com/eos7dfirmwareupgrade Regards,Neil.
  11. Hi, you may find something helpful here: http://soundsofnewmexico.com/A1_user_manuals_-_timecode.html Neil.
  12. Better to be looking at it than looking for it! Sorry,I could'nt resist that! A friend in the construction industry told me that a long time ago when I asked why he carried so much equipment in his van! This is my first post on the "new" site I think..hopefully my next post will be a bit more helpful! Happy New Year to all.Neil
  13. Hi, Be sure to turn off the camera phantom power supply! Good Luck,Neil
  14. Hi, I would be grateful if anyone here can give me some info/comments about the Ultrasone PRO650 headphones as I am thinking of buying a pair for monitoring location sound recordings. The Ultrasone website has no info about them. Thanks in advance, Neil
