    sound devices and all audio gear on airliner

    I would have thought that with products such as SD Mix Pre 6, with a twin channel Rx (or two) and Tx's, plus a small boom mic (I am liking my Senn 8050 in a Cinela Cosi) one could put together a tiny, emergency kit which could easily become a part of one's hand baggage. Put the rest of the (grown up) kit in the hold and enjoy belt and braces, the best of both worlds. It's all getting smaller and smaller...... Simon B

    Joppe's charger is brilliant - I love it. It is the best I have seen so far. Simon B

    Np-50 Bulk Charger

    I meant to say yes please USB - it can then double as charger for Nanolockits and/or Tentacle etc..... sb

    Np-50 Bulk Charger

    Also still interested. Integrated PSU if poss. If SM PSU then it can do 110-230v surely.... sb
  7. What a great idea, let down by some really unmemorable sound FX - surely they could have done better than that? Things like the 'thwacks' and the ball bounces etc - the mics look so close, and yet the FX sound limp. An opportunity wasted methinks......
  8. Copper (wire) is almost always more reliable than radio waves. Power from an AC outlet is almost always more reliable than batteries. I understand that your over the ear mic needs to be wireless, and the handheld. I would consider to build your mixer into your case etc.. such that generally you can plug it into AC, and that the AC might power everything in that case. Battery backup should be the option, but not the rule. I would consider, as a general rule, having the mixer nearest to the iPad, and connected bu wire - can this work for your act, or does the mixer need to be on stage next to you? If the mixer is next to the iPad, then I would consider a short, medium, and long cable which can be used (or joined on to the next to make longer) to connect to the house PA (with a number of adaptors to accommodate whatever type of IP the house PA uses. The above involves or suggests an amount of compromise, but should offer a scenario where you are using RF where you need to, but have wired connections for some links, and this should be more/most reliable. Good luck. Simon B

    I always rather liked the British affectionate term for the actors.... 'turns', as in 'bring out the turns', or 'fetch the turns'. sb

    Stereo Mix - scripted series

    I did this for many years here in the UK on scripted drama. Generally it worked fine, as on many scenes it was pretty obvious that either the radios were working best, or the booms were. Generally I would monitor (mostly) the mix that I thought would be the one that the editor would prefer for the scene, however, sometimes this might not be clear. It would mess with my head if I felt that both mixes might or could be used, as I would want to monitor/mix both..... and I am not that ambidextrous 😉 Often, I would 'throw away' the radio mix (ie not mix it or listen properley) for the wide shot, as I knew that the booms would be nicer for the close ups, and it wouldn't matter for the wides. More recently I find that most productions just want one track of mix to work with, so I mix the radios into the wide shots, and then take a view on which to send to the mix for the close ups. I like the idea of sending booms to one channel post fade, and radios to another channel post fade, but for me to be monitoring both (in mono) whilst mixing. Edit can then sum the two mixes to get what I was hearing in my headphones. That said - I have never been specifically asked for this. I I were in your situation I would go and see and talk to whoever is asking for split mixes and discuss. Hope this works out well in the end. Simon B

    Advice for a novice

    She is WAY to modest - not only has she been nominated for awards and won some.... she has one of the most alternative ways of looking at the sound recording process ever. Really she is a poet, who ended up being a sound recordist to make a living 😉 Oh - and she is a dear, dear, person, and I had one of my most memorable lunches ever with Jan. She is genius 😉 sb and on a more practical note...... I pinched a small module from a talk that my chum Richard Merrick here in the UK gave. He does a great couple of slides about other mics vs the 416. He does eg the best mic for recording a commentary might be a U87, but a bloody good 2nd best is the 416..... the best mic for recording a sit down interview might be the Schoeps CCM42, but a bloody good 2nd best is the 416, and so on. I don't have a 416, but they are bloody good, bloody reliable pretty much anything mics. Buy a 2nd hand one and it will serve you for years. Happy listening.... sb
  14. Both Aaton and Zaxcom Deva have had this for quite a while - the ability to alter what goes to which OP depending on the mode of the machine, including NO OP in certain modes. I cant remember if there is a similar feature for Zaxcom Nomad. If you use this feature, and it is automatic - what happens to the clients/agency headphones during a rehearsal? Have fun y'all, Simon B
