  12. Check if the adapters wiring is correct check if your lm and um output at least 4 v ( i discovered that 2 of my ums are 2.7v what is good for any other but not for dpa ) MS

  15. And TT, When I had my first Feature with God in 1996 , he was very sharp about he doesn't make second take for sound since he don't really care about , so for my help came the God's DP which was very kind to say to GOD , " I f''d the take " every time GOD OR HISS ANGELS where mumbling or sound was distracted by other Gods processes in the same time the camera and sound where rolling , so we will able to re shoot it. The God was alwais generus to any other department and made another one for the picture- not for sound .. So my conclusion is that the god doesn't count us , but he likes we trick him - as he knows all :-) By the way ,this is the only movie he was not ADRed and it is only thanks Camera people - not my department MS
  16. Not really , it still sell billions of tickets without " real sound man " work :-) MS
  17. TT, the god just spoke to me again , in German , still with Steve J voice but this time dubbed by German actor - Micael (thats me) Lassen Sie die Chivava auch solche, die in seinem Leben ein Pitbull sein, auch wenn es nur auf Jw Ton passiert .. Schließlich, wenn er zurückkommt zu setzen, muss er noch viel, ein Chivava. One thing is certain -film productionis more then just the sound . Too many soundpeople forget that - including my self " TT MS
  18. And by the way , last time that i was speaking with god , not only he was mute but i could swear he was distorted as well , we replaced him with Steve Jobs voice :-) In the beginning, God SAID( ADRed by Steve Jobs ) 'Let there be MAC MS
  19. I never said that yore work or my work is useless ( and to original poster , i am older then you with probably more mixing hours and probably more years in the biz , i started in 85 :-)) , but as one department in the whale structure of movie making , we are the only department which could be eliminated completely on fiction . , Docu is something differnt , there we still have some points, even were have been kicked out from the news( biz as where budget problem , and the news did survived without us, so not sure if "real docu will show us the door as well as it been happen sometimes :-) So my point, is better shut up and less make waves about our importance as movies could be done without us , they couldnt done without camera ( light grip inside ) , art , actors and script write. Director , who knows if he will survive either in the future :-) You can see your self as the last of the Mohicans , in 20 years from now , our profession is not exist MS
  20. By the way , i know the god in person , he is mute , so he never said it - he was ADRed :-) MS
  21. Wow! Spoken like a true stuck-up camera guy... OK, (just for fun)... seriously, just for fun -- please don't take offense... or, do... I really don't care. NO , But as i can assume i know much more about cameras . "The only thing that you can completely change after the movie been shot is your work..." Not true... in this digital age, there are many aspects of a production than can be changed after the fact -- Sound has always just been at the forefront of this process -- thus, making it easier on the other departments. That's how accommodating we are -- always thinking of the big picture and how our contribution helps... yes it could be change in parts or fragments after shoot , your work could;d be completely delited , replaced or not done at all and it will not influence on the product - you are the last in chain :-) "..., it could be thrown away, ..." Sure, worst-case scenario... but at least not until it's imported and used in the post-production process for looping (which most people on either side of the equation hate, BTW... that's common knowledge.) Ever try ADR without a guide track? Ever try ADR, period? It sucks! Also, how much of what the Camera records is 'thrown away'? If we're talking percentages here, I'd venture to guess that a higher percentage of what we record as Sound Mixers makes it to the final product than what the camera records -- this is part of why Cameras (finally) went digital -- to save $ on all that film that was being wasted, going straight to the cutting room floor. : ) Camera shots are always have been throw away for the best of the story , do you work on this 2 months or are you under 18 ?:-) the sound could be throw away completely ,not even one line of yore affort will stay inside , how about it ?:-) ADR - who need you , why waist 600 on your head while Pa can do the same for 50 :-) "...replaced and remixed ..." kind of like digital images are manipulated, replaced, CG'd... shit, Pixar proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that you don't need a single stitch of live action imagery in a production -- even if they used MoCap initially -- guess what? -- it all got replaced! : ) The original production sound, on the other hand... hmmm, all used in the final product. : ) All used - hhhaha , the HOLLYWOOD SOUND? Dud , you are green , replaced and remixed - i hope that you are making hese speeches only INfront the mirror and not in front of your producer - ARE YOU TALKING TO ME ?:-) (sure, they're kid's movies, but they're still awesome... and there are plenty of movies intended for a broader audience that fit this bill as well... I just thought the Pixar movies would be a good example... since I suspect I'm replying to someone who might be a bit... childish. OH, SNAP!!! "...so let say , you are not so important , is just the money matters :-)" Spoken like someone with an extremely narrow-minded world-view... not even gonna try to explain how off you are here... casting pearls. Why does someone else have to be wrong in order for you to be right? Why does someone have to have a lower level of importance in order for someone else to have a higher level of importance? I'll be the first person to admit that my level of importance on any given job -- shit, even in life as a whole -- remains to be seen -- on a daily basis... but if you deliberately provoke me in an unwarranted attack, I'll turn into a pit-bull on crack -- I'll cloud up and storm all over you... but not in a mean way -- just a lion playing with a hyena's skull kinda way -- Pit bull on crack, these stupid dogs which been out of the low in some countries - i see you as Chuvava mostly , you are not important as you think you are , you are expandable , replaceable , not even one director will say no to production because they didn't hire you :-) so let's say you go back to your camera forum and leave this one to the Soundies ; ) you' re not a soundy ,you are what i call , self big image soundy , AND sorry for the late reply as had to finish , Carpaco, Caesar salad , 25 onz entriqueote and creme brule first, as it bad luck to answer newbuys on empty stomach . MS - ps Vin , the Bollywood is an excellent example how important the soundman , and why is it possible without :-)
  22. The only thing that you can completely change after the movie been shot is your work, it could be thrown away, replaced and remixed . so let say , you are not so important , is just the money matters :-) MS
