  1. The “show me your bag” thread is a good place to look
  2. It wouldn’t be quite so attractive of an advert if they showed you all the wires and power cables that would be needed to make this work.
  3. I have a feeling there is some sort of miscommunication or something at the company. I have a pair of mkh404 mics (yes they’re ancient I know) and Sennheiser said that they didn’t even have a record of ever manufacturing them! Crazy because you can find some documentation about these mics by doing a google search. But it is likely that whomever you speak with may just be giving you the runaround because they don’t want to deal with the paperwork. I would hope that they have better people on board than that though.
  4. Those are two mics that are very different in size. The general rule for mics and things like windshields and shockmounts is that you need a whole set for each mic you have. If you are getting into this business to save money, you are definitely in the wrong business. Regarding your questions about blimps: some of the clips can be moved around depending upon the model of the blimp that you have. You need dead space surrounding the mic in order for the blimp to work properly as a windshield. This is pure physics and common sense. You would want there to be a relatively equal amount
  5. I could make room for that console. @Philip PerkinsKnows that I already have a nice compact vintage console that is probably more versatile, but man, no Beatles cred. Haha
  6. If you’re looking to use the mm1 to boom with, two lithium AAs last nearly three days.

  8. I said the same thing about Eric Clapton’s 1994 album “From the Cradle”
  9. If you’re talking about your headphones, maybe you need a mono to stereo headphone jack adapter. Plugging stereo headphones into a mono Nagra will result in sound only coming out of one side, unless you use an adapter.
  10. The Neumann’s are probably the highest quality around at a better price point. You can get a pair of used ones for around $1200. Personally I would be happy with sennheiser 8040s or Neumann’s. But luckily I have a pair of Schoeps mk4s and frankly, I don’t think a better mic exists than Schoeps.
  11. Era of reduced budgets? Let’s see, the client and director are calling in via zoom instead of flying out from wherever they are stationed, they’re not renting 12 comteks, and instead of the five to ten crew you usually get on an interview type job, you have a camera guy, sound mixer, and maybe a PA or assistant for the camera guy. They’re saving loads of money on these shoots. Anyone willing to do all of this for one low price is nothing but a fool. You take a job like this because you need the paycheck that badly, you aren’t freelancing correctly, and that client is just going to ask you to d
  12. Did anything become of this? I just purchased a set which includes an src, two SMQVs, and an hma in 941 and I’m getting some fuzzy kind of sounds on transients, like I’m having reception issues except my reception cones are 100% full. They seemed to test fine but while I’m rolling I hear it, and it makes me pretty nervous. This on a completely clear scan.
  13. I think that aside from what’s already been said, in an ideal world you’d have two boom ops dancing around the cameras. Lavs are great but intermod and reception aren’t your only concerns, and realistically lavs will only work reliably with limited movement. If these people are jumping around and performing all kinds of physical activity, you may be dealing with scratchy, muffled, fallen, or even broken lavs. How willing are they to stop down in the event of any of these things? If they really care about the project, they should get you a couple of booms ops. It’s really the best contingency p
  14. Nothing to add to the above statements except that they generally have a quick servicing turnaround. Denecke is a company that I feel good about supporting because they do great work and are really amazing folks. They’re here for us so we’re heee for them
