  1. Yep. 6 hours is not unreasonable. They've been known to go longer, but I wouldn't try. Don't forget to "air" the batteries out for 2-5 minutes after you pull the tab off. Always a good idea to have at least one spare earwig on hand as well.
  2. Why do you "have to" use an earwig with an induction loop? What do you mean by induction loop? The kind that is hidden under an actors costume with a receiver, or do you plan on running an induction loop around the set? Both options WAY less desirable than just renting a modern base station and RF earwig,(s)?
  3. Any time you can have a mic n the shot it's a win!!!
  4. The speakers will be handheld? Will the mic be on a stand?
  5. Hey Larry. Is there any downside to doing the mod if SNA 600's will only ever be used on a venue field, (in a bag), with ant pwr switched off?
  6. Ed White


    seems like the geometry is off 😀
  7. Keith Pulley at Comtek was unclear?
  8. Mark at Location Sound. There are more than a few ways to wire for Lectro. Mark can walk you thru them all.
  9. But even if the new cloaking SSM micro becomes invisible, won't there still be a lump on a super tight costume?
  10. Soooo........ there were these 3 great looking gals from the mid west who decided to hop on a bus and go to Hollywood to see if they could "break in to the biz" during their first summer before college. They got a room at the YWCA, answered an ad for 3 weeks of 100 extras in a big studio picture, and abracadabra, they were extras on the set of a blockbuster movie. At lunch towards the end of the 3rd week, one of the girls confessed to the other two that she was sleeping with the producer of the movie who had already promised her a leading role in his next project. Well, said the second gal, I'm sleeping with the director, and he has promised me the leading role in his next movie. The 3rd girl then said, well, if we're kissing and telling, I'M sleeping with the sound man. "WHAT?!" the other two said. What the hell does that get you? You obviously haven't been paying attention around here said girl three. Everywhere you go on this set, everyone is always saying, fuck sound.
  11. All Denecke time code products are also world famous for rock solid accuracy. I'm sure you've triple checked all settings, but it sounds like one of them is wrong.
  12. Just Kidding Affinity. Senator Mike has been a highly regarded production sound professional both on the set and in the classroom for decades. He has forgotten more about the science of production sound than many of us will ever know. In fact, he generously posted to your article here, "Operating a boom mic", back in April 2011 :>)
  13. There's a Senator with teachable production sound experience?
  14. Hey Jim. Are you saying that you have specific knowledge of someone getting busted for using a radio mic on an illegal freq?
  15. Don't forget Black Magic Mini Down Converters. $280.00 each to keep using what you already have if for some reason production won't provide. I don't mind the gawkers. That's how I met my wife so I have a soft spot. Sometimes if they invade too much I ask them if they would like to sit on my knee. That usually shames them back to a comfortable distance.
  16. I'm thinking of mounting DPA 4081s to the facial capture camera boom on a MoCap feature I have coming up.
  17. Thanks Robert, I keep forgetting to save this thing when I get it!
  18. call location sound @ 818-980-9891 and follow the prompts to have someone call you back and open rental immediately. Coffey/ Trew probably has that too.
  19. @ Ben, Great post. Much good info. Probably won't help Matt on this shoot, but which peak hold spectrum analyzer are you using? Best, Ed
  20. Hey Jan, Great story with a surprise ending after a year! Curious if you were monitoring directly out of the 788t or a mix panel. Best, Ed
  21. Hey Scott. Thanks for the post. Very big multi location studio feature shooting exteriors in Vancouver 3-4 weeks in March. Probably won't be much opportunity for a fisher. Forgive my ignorance, but do you have a last name for Phil?
  22. anyone have a line on the A- list boom ops in Vancouver?
  23. You answered your question in the second sentence of your post. Field- portable. Rack mount- not so much. I've put a Field in a picture car on a tow rig, cabled away from the cart on a snake, even quite cool in a bag. Just wish you could power down unused modules.
  24. Good one John. Matt, he did. I worked with him a few times very recently. He was gracious, cooperative, funny and fabulous in every way. And what a voice!
