  1. There is no common rates between sound mixers around the EU; because the cost of business & cost of live is different from nation to nation. For example, UK & GER has better salary compared to Greece (where I am working & live). TV Drama, Feature Films & Documentaries is main industry. I know it's hard to get your feet at the start (like me when I changed only a city - can you imagine), but I would suggest you to start from Berlin - where you have lived before and you be will closer to your partner.

    Aaton trade-in

    I don't understand how this devaluing used market. Used market it's up to buyer if will use the money to buy something new regarding technology or give it for medical hospital reasons or whatever reason is. Trade-in market, to take that deal you have to buy their new line. It's different.
  3. Still 1 frame off with stand alone mode from UltraSYNC ONE. First time we experience such a problem, only with this camera. Hmmm
  4. So, finally we found what's the problem (I hope). We have switch off the connection between UltraSYNC ONE's (Master & Slave Mode) and convert it as stand alone; taken the timecode from Mix-Pre 10 II.
  5. Yeap, the second DIN - SYNC. What I have notice, between LTC & SYNC, the level is different. LTC has Standard, Low, MIC while SYNC has Standard & High. LTC Standard is around -15 while SYNC Standard is -20 at levels. With that setting, post says it's 1-2 frames off in some scenes. Next episode of #problemsolving (lol) will completely eliminate the "Server" and "Client" status (so basically the communication between ONE's) and use it as standalone units taken TC from Mix-Pre 10 II. Let's see.
  6. Hi Philip & David, Both camera & UltraSYNC is up to date. We have changed the output routine from LTC to SYNC, post says it's 1-2 frames off now. I am done. Hahaha
  7. The drift even when we have UltraSYNC ONE plugged (and not touching) to BMP. Post is complain a lot, but nothing we can do further. We have tried every possible tweaks. Grrr
  8. Something that puzzle me, we are using 3 UltraSYNC ONE (two for camera, one for Mix-Pre 10 II) and post says it's 4 frames off. Everything set at 25 FPS. Can someone tell producers, not using those cameras for "real jobs"? I hate them (lol).
  9. Hi Elias, Θα επικοινωνήσω μαζί σου σύντομα. Sorry guys for the greek. hehe
  10. Hi Ken, 1. When I was started, four channels was ok. Eight channels was expensive thing. Now, eight channels is something pretty standard for recorder. 2. Four wireless is ok, if you want more you can rent. 3. Mostly two shotguns. That's a big discussion which brand (lol). 4. I am using Ambient QS boompole, 5.2m, but I am doing mostly scripted work. 5. Timecode, IFB, camera hop is necessary. ==== It's not a good idea to start with a loan, especially that time. You buy only when you needed something or when you have the money in your pocket - playing safe business risk here. I know, US market is different from mine, but others can guide you better from me for that market. ==== If you want to discuss further which type of brands, please let me know. Thanks, V
  11. My question: SFX capturing has to be done during filming?
  12. 50mW here, Greece. Very rare to go 100mW, but sometimes is necessary.
  13. That little kid, is amazing! Amazing pre-amps!
  14. If I had to upgrade something, that will be for better wireless system. 633 is fine recorder and easy to use. Do you need more than six channels in your workflow?
  15. If I had to invest in Camera Link that will be: - SRX220 - TRX743 Not sure why Zaxcom has decided to discontinued SRX220, but it is a cool piece of hardware.
  16. I have read on ASC Magazine - March Issue that NAB will be in April 23-24 (don't remember exactly).
  17. Hi, +1 for above comments PS. If you don't have money to buy better microphone or acoustical treatments, then fill the room with staff, especially blankents etc. This will destroy early reflections, don't wait to be like pro studio. Search on Google (or your preferred search enginee) about pro voice over people how they make her/his own way. 🙂
  18. The bag itself from ORCA is very heavy. ORCA must think about to make ones with less weight.
  19. You mean M2D2? https://www.gothamsound.com/product/sx-m2d2-stereo-preamplifier
