  1. Pertaining to corporate and doc work(haven't done film in a while): AS most of my clients don't know what cedar is, nor do they have post that are aware of the new software, I'm trying to figure out a standard of how to use the new technology. Currently I've set up a bus with processing called "processed audio", or I've added the plugin to the master buss two both channels. Any thoughts on what a "standard" could be? I understand if post made this request, but at the moment I've not yet had one. Is there any reason other than client knowledge why we should be still recording a stereo master track? Say a two person on cam interview, With the 8 series we can make two mixes one lavs, the other booms, each with their individual compression, automix, and cedar. I'm not trying to put post people out of work, but many gigs I work on I know the client is editing in house.
  2. Wondering if anyone knows how to disassemble an HM. I've got a short in the connector. Shorts when moved. Trying to fix today for quick turn around. I'm hoping this is a simple broken wire or connection as the manual states "do not have the local repair shop attempt anything other than the simplest repair. If the repair is more complicated than a broken wire or loose connection, send the unit to the factory for repair and service."
  3. Thanks but I wanted to make it myself. I'm looking for wiring confidence confirmation as I don't have a way to test the cable except on set. In theory I think there shouldn't be any phase cancelation issue 😑. Sending same signal to two channels usually just gives a volume bump, but has phased each-other out in circumstances that escape me at the moment. I used to do installations with Bose "mono" L1 systems and sometimes a y cable would cancel out the center in a mix.
  4. Hi I found the wiring for red 5pin xlr. I'm Wondering if I can wire the LR receiver Ta3 mono to a 5pin xlr out to both Red channels as client likes to playback most takes. Having both speakers playing on monitor would be more "professional" though I understand it would not give me that much more volume. I'm unclear of phases issues with this kind of wiring. Thanks
  5. sounds like you need to send it in.
  6. Looking to update my usual R11 or vampire clips for my cos11 and I see a lot of new tools out there. I don't see any youtube reviews and would be grateful on any write ups. Thanks Shirt holder Tie Holder Hideamic Blfex silicone Lav concealer Button Down

    Hi Folks just bumping this. Wondering how the cart is treating users after a few months.
  8. Hey Michael Thanks We just wrapped. Filmed a home birth. Found someone local and glad we did. Got the call at 2am baby came out at 3:40. Luckily Mark came in and did a great job.
  9. Thanks Sb but it's similar to other content I've seen. Not very deep. Going to have time for test in a few days.
  10. Unfortunately that article is over my head 😬. I'm not sure the date either as there is new software to handle a format recordings.
  11. From wikapedia "It is possible to recreate the three-dimensional soundfield, however the soundfield microphone particularly shows its versatility in a stereo or mono application. For example, a forward-facing cardioid is produced by2W+X. By combining the signals in various proportions, it is possible to derive any number of first-order microphones, pointing in any direction, before and after recording. For instance, provided the W, X, Y and Z signals are recorded separately, it is possible to pinpoint the microphone to a certain response from the audience even after recording. Examples of software that perform these calculations are Visual Virtual Microphone, SoundField's Surround Zoneand Ambisonic Studio's B2X decoders plug-ins. In other words, the B-format recording can be decoded to model any number of microphones pointing in arbitrary directions: each microphone's pattern can be selected to be omnidirectional, cardioid, hypercardioid, figure-of-eight, or anything in between. This can be done live or in post-production (after the recording is made)." Considering one of the most popular mics (cs3e) has 3 capsules this seams like a viable option. Though tetra mic site talks about this decoding technique, Sennhiser dose not mention it on their site.
  12. Still looking. I've got a few people a few hours away but would prefer someone local if anyone has a referral.
  13. So I did a project for youtube with this mic as a sub-sub-sub... contractor. I really enjoyed working with it so just bought one. I've not done much MS recording and wonder if this would replace ms recording in the future or at least be another option if post can handle. I really like listening with these type of mics as I've also used the tetra mic.
  14. Looking for an experienced boom op for most likely one day of filming in a house. Doc style filming in a living room of a birth. Must have good sense of frame line as camera will be moving. Date in between Dec 1-10 email sound with seth at gmail directly please. Working out if they can afford rate to block out dates for one person, or if we get a few names and see who is available when the labor starts.
  15. Thanks! and thanks. it's on the to do list. Did it for the first record. Thanks Crew! Mckay was always saying "yay it sounds like people in a room" when we got to that point. And we talked about the "vibe" a lot You guys must have learned the same terminology.
  16. Hey Thanks CrewC! Means a lot coming from you with your experienced ears. I wrote the tune, sang, played guitar, and worked with my good friend and producer Mckay who played drums and everything else. http://www.mckaygarner.com I initially did the vocals at home, then we decided it wasn't the right performance so we went to his place which is a well treated mixing room with a tube mic. Drums and guitar recorded at Jingle town in Oakland. We go into mastering in a week for the record. Took a lot of time off to record most of this at home. My bank account and wife needs me to go back to work though : ) Hoping to find some placements for some of these tunes. Been a lot of fun.
  17. as well as Bela Fleck is on the hip name https://youtu.be/qRK7-SIAbtQ I don't think any of you guys are going to steal my tune so here it is. I know your all so curious.
  18. Well why on earth did they name a tv show when there is already a song, an album and a band!!! I don't get it!? Dumb people! Thank you for the valuable info. 😜
  19. Hey all I've written a song called Big Country and I found this tv show called Big Country! see where I'm going? I see it is produced by Crazy Legs Productions. http://crazylegsproductions.com Dose the sound mixer happen to be on JWsound? Thanks!
