  1. Sennheiser for low price and Lectrosonics. In the future I purchase the Lectrosonics systems. idiosyncrasy : ιδιοσυγκρασία. I had very long time to hear this word.
  2. Experience and genius mind. Ok sorry. Medical tapes and foams for me. In this problem we have no "standards".
  3. David replay the same tests but for this time in outdoor. After the test choose the microphone.
  4. I choose the bag. This is my drawing about "My bag company". (based in the Sound Devices 788T) drawing is in progress
  5. Test 4: NTG3 Test 5: CS3-e Test 6: 416 I really like the test 4 and 5.
  6. Batbox Baton The Baton is a simple but versatile bat detector having a monitor speaker allowing reduction of frequencies between 20kHz to 120kHz. The division factor is 10, reducing the sounds of a 50kHz bat to 5kHz. The unit comes with a version of BatScan sound analysis software, developed especially for the Baton. In addition, if attached to the soundcard of a laptop computer by a stereo lead from the ‘line out’ of the Baton, it will produce real-time sonograms, allowing detailed analysis of calls when used with BatScan software. The Baton retains the original amplitude of the calls recorded, allowing 3D analysis of bat calls. (time, frequency and intensity). Calls can also be recorded on other devices such as MP3 or minidisc for later analysis. MP3 files will have to be converted to WAV files before Batscan will be able to load them. The Baton is also ideal for listening to orthoptera (grasshoppers and crickets) whose communication is in the upper part of, or above human hearing. One PP3 9V battery lasts for up to 30hrs (alkaline). http://www.batbox.com/baton.asp Help this girl to find the ghost.. Haha
  7. Check this pdf Go to page 72 -73
  8. Douglas Lilburn New Zealand composer Douglas Lilburn giving a demonstration of a work composed in the Electronic Music Studio at Victoria University, Wellington, New Zealand, in 1970. Lilburn is demonstrating the sounds produced for a modern dance performance that include the electronic reconstitution of the sounds of the extinct huia bird.
  9. Great music also for these days CrewC. One of my favorite garage band.
  10. I found this from there: http://nickmeade.com/blog_tesd.php Creating Custom Cables for Field Recording One of the lessons I have learned in my career is that good gear is hard to find. Great purchases always require a decent amount of research and even then you may not always find what you are looking for, especially in the specialized world of sound effects recording. For example, I was recently in the market for a 2-channel cable for my stereo MKH-30/MKH-60 combo rig. As there were no commercially available solutions that I was particularly fond of, I decided to build a cable from scratch with the exact materials I would like to see in a quality stereo mic cable. My goal in this tutorial is to show the basics in custom cable construction, not specifically give instruction in soldering. For specifics in the art of soldering check out YouTube and enter a search criteria such as "How to Solder," where I was easily able to find approximately 5600 videos on the subject. The first requirement in making good customs cables is good tools. Below you will see a picture of the basic tools I use when creating cables: Soldering Gun, Wire Strippers, Multi-Meter, Gator Clip Stand, and of course a small torch for heat shrink. (My favorite tool!) Next we need the actual supplies for the cable itself. It is very important to buy quality components when building cables. For this build I am using Mogami W2739 4-core cable with Neutrik Black and Gold XLR's. One of the goals of this build was to create a stereo cable that was ultra light for field recording but also possessed enough quality to stand the rigors of the field. The W2739 cable is close to 1/4 the size of a standard mic cable, but is still rigid enough for field use. I am also using .125", .1875" and .25" shrink tubing to protect all exposed wire strands in the cable. A close up of the shrink tube I am using. The clear shrink tube is for the ground lead, while the black is for the W2739. I will explain the use for both. The shield will be used as the ground for the cable. Carefully take the shield strands and wind them into one single strand as shown below. Next, take the 4 individual conductors and group them into 2-pairs. The grouping of the pairs does not matter as long as they are consistent throughout the project. I grouped the colored strands into one pair and the shaded strands into another. It is now time to install the shrink tube on the exposed ground lead. This will prevent the possibility of any shorts in the future. I am also taking the time to apply solder to the tips of the leads to prevent any unraveling of the strands during the installation. Soldering irons come in many shapes and price points. I use this $50 Weller workstation and have literally completed hundreds of projects with it. It also collapses nicely to fit into my toolbox. I have the iron set to approximately 80% power for this project. http://1.bp.blogspot...e_solder_11.JPG http://4.bp.blogspot...e_solder_12.JPG One mistake I often see is people make when making cables is fill the cups of the XLR connector with solder. Try to use enough solder to get the job done; not so much as to fill the cups and make de-soldering a nightmare, but enough solder so that the cable does not fail due to cracked joints caused by rough handling. Neutrik conveniently labels their connector terminals with numbers to make sure you get the cable in the right place every time. Just remember what XLR stands for when soldering XLR cables: X=1 for Ground, L=2 for Live, R=3 for Return. Below I have attached the ground to terminal 1. I will attach the colored wires to Terminal 2 (L=Live) and the Shades to Terminal 3. (R=Return) http://2.bp.blogspot...e_solder_14.JPG Here is what the finished soldering job looks like. Clean and polished, with enough solder to retain a good, stable connection but not so much that if I needed to remove the cable from the terminal it would be an issue to de-solder. The only issue with the picture below is that the place where the cable sleeve ends has exposed shield material, which I will now cover with the shrink tube we slid onto the cable before soldering began. http://2.bp.blogspot...e_solder_15.JPG http://4.bp.blogspot...e_solder_16.JPG To finish this end of the XLR simply slide the protective plastic sleeve and cover on and screw it together with the back piece you installed earlier. If you forgot to install the back before you soldered the cable, you will now have to de-solder the cable, install the back piece, and re-solder the cable back together again. Since I need a stereo cable, I am repeating the steps I performed above to solder an XLR to a second cable and will use several pieces of shrink tube to link the two cables together. There is tubing available for purchase that can cover the entire cable, but in turn creates a more rigid cable than I want for field applications. http://3.bp.blogspot...e_solder_18.JPG http://4.bp.blogspot...e_solder_20.JPG http://1.bp.blogspot...e_solder_21.JPG If you have never used a Multi-Meter before I recommend checking one out. The meter I use checks everything from resistance to amperage to voltage. The setting you see below is used for checking continuity, which is simply a test to make sure path 1 connects to path 1, not path 2, or path 3, and so on.. Simply insert one end of the test node into the female XLR. Then test the matching terminal on the male side of the cable. A terminal with continuity will make the Multi-Meter beep or output some sort of signal. (Depending on your make and model) For example, Ground to Ground should have continuity, not Ground to Live. Also take the time to check for shorted connections. If pin 1 has continuity with pin 2 for example, you have a short and need to evaluate your cable before proceeding. http://4.bp.blogspot...e_solder_24.JPG I always label my cables. In this case I am labeling them LT and RT. http://3.bp.blogspot...e_solder_23.JPG http://3.bp.blogspot...e_solder_25.JPG http://4.bp.blogspot...e_solder_26.JPG Here is a look at one of the other options in 2-channel cables. My cable is much lighter and way more flexible then this Mogami 2-pair AES/Analog cable. http://3.bp.blogspot...e_solder_27.JPG Let me know of any feedback you may have and happy soldering!

  11. Format the CF and hard drive before the record. Download the latest version firmware.

  14. Yes. Ok. The soundtrack is good but contrast to the image is an apathetic music. Does not "comments" the picture in many cases. In the middle of movie the director is playing with the sound very good and surprise me. But the end of movie the only dialog is "My pleasure". And not good. Yeap the actor is dyslexic. Is there a hint for this before in the movie?
