  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
  15. Hi Patrick, Yes, you are correct. Turning the CCM8 by 180 degrees will indeed reestablish the correct Left/Right orientation. If you had a mixer in line the 'phase invert' switch (on the CCM8 channel) would do the same. WP
  16. Thanks Jeff. Site working well now on my Mac. Long overdue donation on its way. Cheers.
  17. Yes, I see the same problem. Thanks Jeff.
  18. I only knew Malcolm from his helpful posts here. Rest in peace sir. WP
  19. Hi, Please check out the below link to Ambients ACN Timecode products. These products are the direct replacement for the original Ambient products you have used I believe. http://ambient.de/en/product_custom_cat/Timecode-en/ Zaxcom ERX and Zaxnet does TC and Scratch audio - https://zaxcom.com/product_categories/zaxnet-ifb/ You may also want to look at TimeCode Systems - http://www.timecodesystems.com/shop/ Can't think of any other TC systems that have a radio link feature but could be wrong. Deneke, Betso and Tentacle Sync are other manufacturers of TC systems. There are many videos online showing these different systems. You Tube. There are many, many discussions here on JW about the different systems.
  20. It is a well known fact (or I was under the impression it was anyway) that the foam on the mic inside a cage (Rycote) reduces the effectiveness of the cage to reduce wind noise. My local kit supplier has told me that Rycote themselves have stated this.
  21. Yep, agreed. Sorry about the confusion in the first place. My bad.
  22. No cons apart from length (physical size). It's always been at bag/cart end so RFI has never been an issue.
