  1. Hi. sorry I was out of town and didn´t see your reply. yes, I found a useful conversation in FB about this and I solved it (I ommit the author... )
  2. Hi. I´m trying to wire a sanken Cos-11 for a wisycom MTP40 with a lemo3 connector. I was following this diagram from Sanken website https://www.sanken-mic.com/en/qanda/index.cfm/11.53 that is originally for Zaxcom TRX900 transmitters but i found it in a forum here in jwsound recommended for the MTP40. I already did it, and the soldering looks ok. In the transmitter I selected "2wire+bias". if I put on the sanken, there´s some sound at very low level. it looks to me like the bias is not powering the capsule. tried to solder it again, just to be sure it was not about a bad contact... and the same. I made a similar soldering in a countryman B6 for the very same transmitter and I had no problems. I contacted to Sanken directly, but they answered that they doesn´t have any diagram for wisycom and the can only provide me the "basic wiring method" https://www.sanken-mic.com/en/qanda/index.cfm/4.19 that is not very helpful for me. I´m thinking that maybe the diagram for Sanken cos-11+ Zaxcom TRX900 is not the correct one for sanken cos-11 + MTP40 ? , or I am missing something...? I would appreciate any help thanks!
  3. great! I didn't find this table. thanks a lot, Rich. very helpful. best regards
  4. Hi you all. I have a couple countryman B6 terminated in a TA5f connector for lectrosonic transmitters and I want to change them to Wisycom transmitter with a LEMO3 connector. The countryman is with the TA5f right now, and when you open the connector there´s two little resistors connecting some pin. I don´t know (and I didn´t find anything in google) if I have to keep those resistors if I change the connector to a LEMO3 for connecting them to a MTP40, or just soldering the cables following the pin code and removing the resistors. any help will be helpful thanks!
  5. I did it myself a year ago or so. It´s easy as long as you do it carefully and paying attention ( as jason says about the screws). and make sure about the battery model needed, there´s a very common battery used in domestic devices with an almost exact name that is a little bit smaller.
  6. thank you all for all that info. I have no experience with ambisonics, but I would like to try it in new projects. which ambisonic system do you think is the best choice for being in a backpack, mostly for recording ambiences and sfx? i´m thinking about docs and so, so it would be one man with a backpack doing it all (portable, durable, easy to mount, good sounding, with wind accesories...)
  7. What about the delicacy of the ambisonic microphones?, I mean... you can take care with your mics and be extremely careful with them, but... filming in location is a hard task. some times you have dust, or wet, or heavy vibrations in the truck in the transportations... how hard or delicate are they? I´m interested specially in how delicate is the Sennheiser Ambeo VR?
  8. Thank you all for your comments. well, good manners and good behavior are a MUST. My bigger worries are about the legal frecuency range for wireless mics, how to face a recording in the desert with 43ºC or more... I´ll go with a Zax Nomad, it will be ok working with such temperatures? the can of compressed air is a good point, I think I´ll have to talk with the local fixer for that.
  9. Thanks for the aclarations jbp
  10. you are right... post edited!
  11. Hi! I don´t know if this is the right place to post this thread... but I don´t know if there´s a more appropiate place to talk about "asking for advice to filming in a foregine country". I may have a recording in Dubai in the short term, probably in the next few weeks, but it could be in a month or so. It will be a local fixer to help me, but I don´t have his contact yet and I have some things I would like think about and preparing my setup. I would like to know if any of you have experience filming in this country or recording in the desert. Does anyone know about legal wireless frecuencies there or any experience working with wireless microphones? any experience in Dubai or any recomendation? any advice will be greatfully welcome Cheers!!
  12. So... I have already checked it with a volt meter. And, yes. F8 stops feeding the microphone with the pantom power when you disable a track for recording. the only thing is that it takes a while to go from 48v (in fact it has 46v) to 0v. When you enable the track it starts to phantom power again. I think it has good reasons to do it. You can unplug the microphone safely and the power consumption of the batteries is optimized.
  13. I think it makes sense... You could disable one track to unplug safely a phantom powered microphone. Another plus, if phantom power turns off in a disabled track the consumption of your batteries would be optimized
  14. Hi. old topic but I have a doubt about the Zoom f8 that I can´t solve reading the manual or searching in the web (maybe I´m not searching the appropiate words...) the question is: when the phantom power in one track is activated, is it turned off automatically when you push the button of "disable for recording" of that track? when you disable for recording one track it goes mute, but i don´t know if it stops giving phantom power to the microphone. regards!
  15. good document, thanks for sharing suso. as long as I know... the frecuencies with the red background belongs to TDT and 4G. all the rest are still in use. the frecuencies inside the red rectangle will be assigned to TDT, 4G, 5G... , probably in 2020
