  1. I stopped using Tram50 because they are the most breakable lav on the planet. B3 are built like tank though they do not sound as good as sanken or dpa. Seriously the cos11 are the best option in terms of robustness versus sound quality.
  2. It says : tools for "storytelling...so the it implies the "story" is already written.
  3. Hello, Does anybody use MTP40s and MPR52 as a camera hop and is it any good? What kind of cable do you need to go from the xlr output of a recorder to the MTP40S, does it need to be paded? I am used to the lectrosonics hop with Srb and I used the paded cable from remote audio to the feed some old UM400a and the results was great. I do not see a lot of cable specific to wysicom, there is a remoteaudio cable XLR to lemo paded for zaxcom transmitter, will it work with the wysicom?
  4. Geez $600 dollars for a plugin could we at least get a free Nvidia graphic card for that price...
  5. Hello, I am mainly doing documentaries / TV shows and I am satisfied with the range I get with my lectrosonics (SMQV and UM400a) as I place them most of the time in the talent's pocket or I clip them on their belt or trousers. Now I am starting to do some short indie film so all my transmitters and my transmitter are put in URSA waist straps. And now it seems that i lost at least half of the range I would get by just placing them in pocket for exemple. I've read and heard about the fact that body does absorb RF but I did not expect it would be to that extent. And
  6. Probably all those dynamic range lost in the loudness war...millions of dB stolen in music since the nineties 😂
  7. I was listening through my monitors (old mackie HR624) and could barely hear any differences in noise between the samples.....Then today I listenened to those samples on my headphones and ok now I can clearly hear the difference. Samples 03 and 04 are noticeably "noisier" with sample 03 being the worst. Geez I thought I was going death with everyone on this discussion hearing things that I could not 😅
  8. Thank you for putting together a listening test comparison while controlling as much variables as you could given the fact that it is hard to have access to a facility and equipment that meet the requirement of EBU or ITU requirements. I've listened to the samples through protools playing back on old Mackie HR 624...I could not hear any difference in noise. At least nothing that is not going to be burried under ambient noise on normal shooting environment. You "can see" (not hear) nothing above 16KHZ on Sample 03 so for sure it is zaxcom and Sample 02 goes above 20khz
  9. Why Skeptical? That is about the price ratio of Zoom's product... Zoom F8 $900 x 5 = the price of a nomad Zomm H3-Vr $349 x 5 = $1745 about the price of a Sennheiser Ambeo VR 3D
  10. Am the only one to think that the teaser is completely out of place regarding the actual purpose of the software: Removing what makes a "space suit" communication sounds real (aka all the buzzing sound)....Did not prevent me from buying the update though 😂 They should really fire their marketing team and made "real world" video that would what this software is capable of doing.
  11. Thank you Jonathan for that post. I have exactly the same problems as described, it starts with some sort of tiny little white spot then it grows and spreads. It happens only on my newer SMQV the one with darker finish.
  12. Hello, I've had this unit for more than a year and a half and some corrosion have appeared after less than six months. It is getting worse as months goes by. I have an older unit with the former finish (less dark grey) and the corrosion is not as bad though I had it for 8 years. Of course this is just an aesthetic matter but I would like to know if some of you might have a solution to treat or prevent that? By the way my transmitters work in a very salty, hot, sweaty and humid environment.
  13. Thank you, your review was actually one of the reason i narrowed my searches to these two mics.
  14. I am looking for a cardioid lavalier for some forthcoming works. They are not going to be hidden underclothes, just need to be "visibly discreet". I narrow down my searches to theses models. But I cant have access to them before buying (no audio shop within 8 hours of flight), so i am looking for any opinion about which one will sound the best. I also need the lav to be functionnal with a little furry wwindscreen as some interviews can happen in ventilated terrace or patio. Thanks in advance for any advice
