    Noisy antenna on Lectrosonics SMDB

    If you try to swap the antenna from one to another, see what happens. It might be the antenna or the transmitter side tho. Just a guess.

    Anyone used Lectro TX with the Wisycom RX?

    Worked on the MM400C, simply because I was lazy to swap around the receivers, and seemed to be ok from my ears. I set a UH400a for Wisycom as well. but haven't had real world shoot yet.

    Camera Hops

    Sony UWP D11 for hops, and IFB monitoring as well. Two AA, 12 -15hours running time. Not even bother to turn them off in the middle of the shoot. If it’s Fs7 or even A7s, their Sony hotshoe could go cable-less on cameras. And I could swap them around for hops and listening.

    Malfunction of repaired COS-11

    Too risky to use the repaired ones, I have mine repaired once, they replaced the old cable to a Shure mic cable. In general, it sounds fine... but later on, it goes on and on with lots of problems, little noise like the cable with he capsule, or even RF antennas etc. best to get a new one or even a used one. Don’t repair it.

    how to solve this, lavalier noises.

    Lots of factors affects the sound of lav while it is hidden. You might be the cable or sometimes just noisy shirt which you can’t do much about, if there is no chance to plan before hand. I would say boom and lavs combo. Sometimes you need to tell your associates, “for this one, I need my boom to be there, otherwise we can’t have it”. Or asking for changing wardrobe. I found if the costume is soft and cotton, micing is 90% done. You need to watch out hard shirt, suit, silk stuff. There is no formula for everything. Today you successfully mic a polo shirt, tomorrow same technic, might have problem with another person with same type of polo shirt. Just try and try and try make it the best out of it. End of day, you could deal with most of situation. Never end learning.

    Best ENG boom pole

    I used to have it without coiled cable. Sometimes, you would feel that it’s a bit shorter than what you really need it. Unless your jobs are mainly wireless dependable, boom is just a boost. Otherwise 565 is the way to go in my Asian thin eyes .... hahahaha

    Best ENG boom pole

    Ambient QX565 with coiled cable. A bit heavy comparing with k-tek, but sterdy, smooth. Best for me.

    AES inputs on high track machines

    I think SD970 does it Alternatives might be a bit ... since there are two venues - 788T x 2 or any recorder + another one covers 16 tracks ...;)

    Bringing 2 Wisycom MCR42 together

    Totally agreed! That wasn’t obvious to me at all too. I struggled quite a bit at the beginning when I got them on my hands. Like the first time I got my Nomad and QRX100 stuff. Massive confusion... at the beginning.

    Bringing 2 Wisycom MCR42 together

    Technically, there are open full frequency channels for self-tuning. you can sync other transmitters ( sen, evo etc.) from those channels. and you could save those frequencies on that channel as well. They got that open freq channel since the beginning.

    Bringing 2 Wisycom MCR42 together

    It’s like all the sennheiser 3000 series. Lots of transmitters are on different frequency plan but in same TV channel. I assume their idea is to have planty frequency options when lots lots wireless working in the same environment, with different owners or big opera show etc. I did talk to wsiycom about the frequency plan. They mentioned the previous version is on different plan. For the two you have, I don’t really think it’s avoiding intermod purpose. They seemed just had different frequency plan. Hiro

    Bringing 2 Wisycom MCR42 together

    http://www.wisycom.com/www3/products/category/programmers I assume you need a UPK (mini) to align your two units, or send one back to get back to a dealer or mothership to get the same plan. In addition, on the receiver if there are open gr/ch , you could manually set the ch to be same as another.

    M/S mic for documentaries

    it depends, I assume MKH418s, AT4029 and Sanken CSS5, M are all shotgun type... I might be wrong, but please check, they probably got more reach than you expected.

    M/S mic for documentaries

    According to the dealer, it does change the sound quality if you switch from 48v phantom to 9v battery. The mic is quit heavy as well.

    M/S mic for documentaries

    Lots of my friends on MKH418, I had few doc jobs required stereo for atmosphere, so I had chance to their 418. I would say it's great piece of gear. Of course if you hate 416, don't come nearer to MKH418. I think the mid part is like 416 sounding However, nowadays I am carrying a different setup for recording stereo atmosphere, which are Zoom H6 + Rode Stereo VideoMic X http://www.rode.com/microphones/stereovideomicx ( they said there are two NTG3 heads without the shotgun pickup pattern and also with all the low cut and sensitivity parameter on the mic itself.) I could set the recording somewhere and pick them up later or asking someone to watch it while I am shooting something with the camera crew. Love the set up. But you have carry a bit more gear on site. Hero

    REVIEW: Schoeps miniCMIT

    From what schoeps stated. They should match exactly the same. I would assume in most of situations,they would perform the same.

    REVIEW: Schoeps miniCMIT

    mini Cmit seems picking up more room echo than other shotguns. I sold and bought microphones, so no serious A/B comparing testing tho... I had cs3e, 8060, 416 as shotgun, MKH50 as interior mic. I never expecting the mini cmit has the same pickup pattern indoor as the MKH50, but it feels quite a bit echoey, maybe it's only from me. Hiro

    MiniCMIT

    I am using kit2, but I think rycote design one specially for MiniCmit.

    Which Schoeps mics for documentaries?

    It's not about what Schoeps or how many you use. It's how you use them. From the situation you describe, 416 and DPA 4063 lavs are good combination. I don't see why they can't work.

    COS-11D SMQV transmitters gain issues

    1k or 1.5k resistors I assume. The picture showed at least 3k or more.

    Any WISYCOM users?

    Sync them: 1. MCR42: Press Sync button for 2-3 sec, screen : sync RX1 , press ok 2. MTP40s: scroll menu to infared page. 3. Put the infared window near to each other. sorry, my english is a bit rough but hopefully works I think the short range might be caused by Freq scan and inter-mod. Let's say you adjust your group to 28 ( if here is a preset freq. this is not frequency block) and scan that group of channels, and take the best one , and test distance again. Good luck Hiro
  22. iTune does the job, with manually putting stamped TC in artist or album section.

    How often do you get clean lines on lavs?

    I guess I was not the lucky one from yesterday shoot. Noisy white semi transparent shirt + chest hair + leather boot and belt, every movement made a hell lot of noise. Tried all my skills ... subject was a bit anonyed I felt. Ended up mute the lav completedly, and MKH50 on top of his head all day long. Not bad sounding... guess I need more practice on my hiding lav skill! Hiro
