  1. Thanks for the heads-up Barry. The pictures on the NoyzBoyz website seem to be of the 2nd version not the X but I really do appreciate your post. I have an 888 that I'm really not happy with squeezing into the Stingray SmallX - I fear all cables on the side will need to be right angled, and quite frankly, that's not practical in my view. Will
  2. One major problem with using the X touch on location is its AC powered ONLY ... no 12volt option. Someone could make some money offering a 12v mod for this device ... but how much when the price of the original unit is so low remains a question.
  3. Hi Mark, I've found the following Facebook group a great source of info on the 8 series and recently saw a discussion about the X touch there. I hope this post is ok Jeff - with link out to Facebook. If not please remove thanks. Sound Devices 8 Series Mixer-Recorders https://www.facebook.com/groups/2147596985533031 Hope it helps, W
  4. Sounds like you are looking for a Sound Designer to recreate an unnatural sound if I understand your question correctly. There may be some members on here that know more about this role, and expected rates, but it would be part of the Sound post production team. Will
  5. Take a look at this from Hawk Woods. https://www.hawkwoods.co.uk/Sound/P/APD-PS I'm not sure of current availability at your local but these things do exist. WP
  6. The Filmtech LSP4 was my first mixer and indeed sounded great with a few advanced (for its time) options such as the linear fader module. Doesn't it have direct outs on the 4 channel inputs? maybe unbalanced? Martyn of Filmtech now runs the Soundkit.co.uk dealership here in Cardiff, Wales. I found this 302 for sale at a reasonable price on BBlist .. for what it's worth. https://www.bblist.co.uk/item.php?item=75331
  7. The 'Gain' of the LFAs is a measurement of the noise floor as compared with an omni antenna is my understanding , and not a type of gain you should be including in your calculations. *Larry explained it in a post here few months ago or possibly longer, cannot find it sorry.
  8. Thank you Constantin and Matthias for your thoughts.
  9. Please excuse slight off-topic question. Re: Sennheiser half rack TX. I've heard that if you run the TX in stereo mode this reduced RF power output relative to mono mode. Is this correct? Anyone else heard this? There is no mention of this in the manual which leads me to believe this info is incorrect. Thanks
  10. Thanks John, I can sleep better tonight knowing this
  11. Thanks Doc, Great job, enjoyable view. W
  12. Totally agree. A wise (not so old) sound mixer mentor once told me: "Always take the first job that's confirmed" .. a piece of advice that hasn't let me down yet. By the sounds of it you are well within your rights to politely let the original client know you are now unavailable to work on those dates. W
  13. I believe one of the signs (or has been in the past) of a fake is a 'flat' front end grill. An original should have an end grill that has a finger shaped recess or 'U' shape as part of its design. The one in the picture looks to have a flat surface but I could be wrong with that observation. The Original should have this indent. A fake might have a flat front end grill. Hope this helps. If in doubt I would return it.
  14. Hi Jeff, 19ms is approx half of one frame which is quite small in the whole scheme of things. Assuming the delay is as quoted - 19ms - then you should either delay the video by this amount or move audio forward my this amount. Delaying the audio in FCP will double the delay. I'm really not sure you'll be able to spot a 19ms delay with lip sync but do the above and you should be fine. W
