    I am a production/post sound mixer. My work covers a wide range including television, movies, and commercials.

  1. I have had DPA replace the microdot for me in the past. They were fast and easy to deal with.
  2. I've been using Reaper more and more these days, but still haven't done much post mixing in it. I use it for live recording, sfx editing, and recently have been using it as a sfx library manager to search and find sfx for sound design work. As with all software there are things I wish it did differently, like metering a mono track in a 3rd order Ambisonics workflow (why do I have to see 16 meters in the mono track?!?!?), but I have little gripes like that about all software. All in all I have been really enjoying using it, and I find it to be very stable and efficient CPU wise. Enough so that I have been doing some live mixing on it for custom routing setups that my console can't handle. It took me a minute to figure out how they implemented it, but the LTC generator that can be put on a track is a handy feature too and negates the need for me to keep pre made ltc audio files around.
  3. Reaper is a highly flexible DAW. You have more options than just recording bwavs. You can record rf64 or wav64 too, or just standard wav files whose standard does not support the timestamp metadata. Should those options be on by default too? Which one? I really don't see how giving people control over their recording file type is not a good thing. I would argue that if you are getting files that need timestamps but don't have them it is the oversight of the recordist, not the software. No iOS app. OS X and Windows only.
  4. Reaper writes the timestamps to the wave files if you have "Write BWF (bext) Chunk" selected in project settings.
  5. You might be able to get mtc into the iPad via WiFi. I haven't tried this, but I know ios and macos can communicate midi via WiFi. A raspberry pi or similar could probably be setup to handle the ltc to mtc conversion and broadcast the MTC to the iPad. Ping me offline again if you want to play around with this.
  6. It happens to me some times, but not always, so I just figured it was low level interference on the channel.
  7. Last comedy show I did I think I used 3 pairs of audience mics. 4 along the stage, 2 on the outside corners and 2 spread in the middle, plus a stereo pair above the audience. I felt it gave me a good balance and control over difuse crowd in the room and direct without focusing on one person's reaction. Picking up the PA system on audience mics is inevitable. If you time align the mics you can play it off as reverb rather than echo, and then adjust to taste. A dynamic mic won't reduce the amount of bleed.
  8. I don't actually know this is what's happening, it's just a thing to check and possibly rule out. With the slates the solution is to set the TC rate manually. I don't think i've tried my mixpre getting TC from the ifb200, but I have had problems with the tentacles not taking a jam from Zaxcom at certain frame rates.
  9. It's possible this is related to the jitter in Zaxcom's tc stream fooling the mixpre's auto frame rate detection similar to the way it fools denecke slates. If you don't have another generator to try, try different frame rates and see if you find the same behavior.
  10. Good to know. I've never really compared the difference in a measurable way. Thanks
  11. I wonder what the difference is between this and the emc series shielded xlr's?
  12. Yeah, I guess I'm being a little loose with my verbage.
  13. While 3.3v may not "technically" be up to spec for some mics, in practice the 4060 performs just fine. I am using a 4061 on a zmt3 as I type this and it sounds great.
