  1. I imagine putting a recorder on a product at this price, might be an indicator that its range isn't great.
  2. But why can't you mic the coach?
  3. And a fine dream it is! And you're doing the best you can to your knowledge and equpiments' capabilities. It's their equipment that's not doing what they want, in my opinion. If post wants you to use a specific mixer for this particular reason, then opt for the post company or even production company to rent one for you. But I can't imagine that's going to be worth it for anyone.
  4. You could argue that Avid should be able to strip the silent channels and figure it out. To me, this seems more like an Avid issue and not an SD issue, if an issue at all...
  5. I'm proud that this document is still useful, or makes me happy (since I started it) but I just though by now someone would've made this information much more easily available than a spreadsheet online... Maybe I'm wrong
  6. Amazing to see that this is still alive. There has to be a better way or site than this document?
  7. Let's enjoy this pure moment of Senator gold.
  8. Thanks! But what I need is the thin wire between the headphones. I can sort of work with what I have and I think litz wire, some paint and flexible enough shrink tubes will get me far. But I just can't understand that these cables, or wires perhaps, are not sold in bulk. But then again there's a lot I don't understand.
  9. That's the thing, the phones I'm trying to repair are mostly 7506s, and that wire is a very specific thickness and flexibility. I've looked into litz wire as well and that seems to work, but I'd have to put a jacket on two of those wires myself, and right about there's where my competence ends. And also, any old thin wire would do, but it doesn't really suit the national public radio to go around with frankenphones, IMO Still looking!
  10. Checked it out. Thing is, there's no real store I can go to and actually see it, the only way is through the internet and potentially order the wrong product over and over.. Very frustrating.
  11. Thanks! And I’ve thought about this myself, that I can just take any wine. Right now I’m repurposing these tiny cables from other headphones, where the plastic has broken straight off but all the cabling is intact. Works. But for the most part, these cables have to small enough and flexible enough to fit in all the special little nooks and crannies of the headphones. I’m sure I can find what I need, but I find scrolling through the internet looking at pictures a bit hard; not one of the cables I find actually look like the cables I want, and that makes me think that I’ll just end up ordering t
  12. Hello gang! I'm sorry if this has been covered already, I searched and found nothing. So, I work in radio on national public radio. We have a bunch of dead headphones, mostly due to broken wires inside the headphones, not the cable. I'm talking about the wire that go between the cups. It's a two core cable, where the wires are red and another color. And they're super thin. The jacket is hardly a mm (bear with me, I'm European) in width, and inside the jacket sits two even thinner wires. I think you know what I mean. Can you buy these cables in length? I'd gladly
  13. I think it's not going to be long before this tech can be used in our business, surely. But it won't replace ADR entirely, because really, that's what it could potentially replace or apply to. Someone still has to record the voice on set. Think of it in terms of how CGI is used. You can do pretty much anything with CGI these days. Dead actor? No problem. But if you look at it long enough you're gonna see that it's an animated, dead, human. Uncanny valley. The same principle will probably apply to voice replacement. It will be a tool that will be useful for certain words here
