  1. Best practice would be a system where you have a timecode device for each recorder, be they audio or video recorders. Choose one device as a master, set it, and jam the other two devices from the 'master'. Ideally you would have a system where the 'master' is continually or regularly updating the jammed 'followers'. Ambient Nano Lockits are very good, Betso are simpler, Tentacle are cheap and cheerful, but many people work well with them. I would plug master into your audio recorder, and the jammed followers into the cameras. Do tests. Check TC at regular in
  2. Puts on pedants hat....... As I understand it - the v1 Mix Pre does not 'clock itsself to the field rate of the incoming TC' at all. Remember that we are talking about a digital recorder, that makes a .bwav file, and that a .bwav file has a TC sync value in the file header. As I think we are all aware... the TC sync value is calculated as the amount of 'samples after midnight' (00:00:00:00) counted at whatever your sample rate is (probably 44,1k or 48k in this case). This value then gets calculated back to a TC value (using the TC rate of the shoot) when the file is pla
  3. .... and what about the new 'Dolby On' app for iOS and Android??? sb
  4. Vortex Communications do their 'Call Me - Click and Collect' system, which works with the remote party using their regular phone. It sounds surprisingly good...... https://www.vtx.uk/product.aspx?id=401 scroll down a bit for the click and collect bit.... Simon B
  5. Haha - I remember seeing the prototype of those Zoom gizmos 😉
  6. Could you do something like to send them a USB mic, like a Rode NT USB-Mini. Have them plug it into eg Zoom, and have them record the Zoom meeting/call??? If the director mutes their own mic when they are 'listening' then audio quality coud/might be quite good??? Might need a proper test though..... sb

    Stop it immediately. If it has set you off this quickly then whatever it is, it is bad. Get rid of it. If you have a spare input to your recorder/mixer then maybe use that. Depending on your recorder/mixer you might be able to send it to the other ear, or to both, and yet not record it. If you have to record it then send it to the highest track number, and see if you can mirror only the track numbers that you need, not the walkie feed. If you cant do the above then get a stand alone small mixer like an SD302, and mix your headphone feeds and the comms on that.
  8. Hi Joppe, I dont think I replied here, but.... my son can help you with circuit board design if you need iit. They should be super cheap to have made - the company I have used before in China charge by the square inch of board!!! Let me know if you need any help with the PCB bit. Did I say that I'd like a 12 wayplease ?? Many thanks, Simon B
  9. Check out Martijn Scholte's website - watch the brilliant videos - he has nailed it 😉 http://www.good-sound.nl/ Envious, Simon B Check out his 'happy client' videos 😉 Genius 😉
  10. We just bought the column - the manufacturer make them as a thing, and the bed manufacturers buy them in. sb Obviously it isnt light.... but by the same token, it is not heavy by cart standards. I cant tell you the weight, but the next time I have the cart stripped of kit (could be in the New Year, I am due a big tidy up) - I'll weight the naked cart for you 😉 sb Very little - a low few amps when raising or lowering, and it is a rare day that we go up and down all day. sb
  11. The lift mechanism is in fact the vertical column you can see at the back of the cart, in the centre between the base part and the moving pod. It is the mechanism used in a hospital bed to raise and lower the pillow end of the bed. On a hospital bed it would be horizontal, and hid under the mattress. In our case it is vertical. Within that column there is a vertical screw thread, with a motor at the bottom. The motor turns the thread, and as the thread turns a metal lug rides up and down the thread. The top pod is attached to the metal lug with a couple of aircraft type metal pins. It really i
  12. See here.... at 4 minutes in 😉 Enjoy 😉 sb
  13. It's not home brew. Deya can be found on FB at Deya Brewing Company. I think they did a number of beers with music industry related names 😉 IMFTM is currently my absolute favourite beer. 😉
