  1. I just bought two of these mics finally. I’m using the rycote INV mount with black lyres in cold weather with a bubblebee windkiller indoors and outdoors. will have to put a grey/hard lyre on the front in the summer i suspect. the black ones get mushy in the sun. haven’t bought a blimp yet, but may try and use my mkh50 blimp. i bought these for a show that needs good/small camera mics, and plan and ditching my 50’s after the show and moving to these. only boomed on day with them just to test them out, but they were pretty nice to swing. light! handling noise with a ktek classic pole and the tiny inv-6 mount was not an issue at all.
  2. that’s some good backlash (with no offence… of course ) about someone doing what they’ve got to do to get the job done. As someone who mixes with a bag strapped to my body every day while booming at the same time, I totally get why someone would do this. I’ve done it many times to make mixer adjustments that needed to be done, and I don’t exactly have the wrists of steel required to one arm boom for more than three seconds. it’s totally risky move, but practice makes perfect! Reality TV can be very unforgiving.
  3. nice! sounds like a very useful tool. i can see a lot of value in that.
  4. love it. looks like a great tiny mixer, and having 7/8 on faders is fantastic. the new firmware to access 7/8 on the recorder's programmable toggles was a big help, but this is better.
  5. thanks for the hide a mic tip. hadn't seen that product yet. Like the idea of what he's trying to streamline, and everything is worth a go since every single outfit/situation is different. Saving 30 seconds of prep on a lav is always a bonus. I certainly like the tie option, and it would keep the snot tape of the mic capsule. As mentioned, I'm sure a little square of mole skin or snot tape would secure the holder to the capsule just fine.
  6. the only obvious thing I can think of is going on the clothes instead, but that's not always going to fly depending on what they are wearing. I'm sure you've considered that option already. I find the bra strap is typically too low in the front to sound good. Tough one. Other than that I sometimes get a hand from makeup or wardrobe (if there are any of those folks on set), as they are often women. You can train them up and the talent might be happier with a woman doing the job.
  7. Yep. I agree with all of the above and none of it is news to me, hence my considered post.
  8. Hi folks, looking to make a purchase from a forum member and could use a reference check from the group. Jordan Bodhaine out of New Mexico. Any comments? On IMDB he seems to be a real life guy. Just being diligent. feel free to either post here or PM me, whatever your all comfortable with. thanks all. ps. assuming it's all good jordan, stoked to add the mixer to my arsenal. sandor
  9. Also interested to see how this turned out. My screen gave up a couple of days ago so I borrowed another mixers 664 and when I fired it up the screen turned red just as above.
  10. If it's not a bum cable then I second the motion to look at physical connection issues. I've had it happen before too. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Nice little story. Sounds like riding that train back and forth would yield some good entertainment. Love the beat box / singing combo. There's a guy from my town called CR Avery. Something else for y'all to check out.
  12. I timed the beachteks in my UH TXs and seemed to get me an extra hour to hour 20 over ipower. So worth it for me. Sandor - Vancouver sound guy
  13. Tough room. Have a Heart people. Anyone ever get deliriously tired and stupid? I have. How does it help to have a dump on someone's misfortune. Perhaps you could also post him a lemon, have him paper cut himself good and deep with the envelope, then squeeze lemon juice on it. Maybe that would also help. Sandor - Vancouver sound guy
  14. Happy to support. Thanks for providing the space. Sandor - Vancouver sound guy
  15. Like the Hidden pineapple. For those who know. Sandor - Vancouver sound guy

  17. Andre. Thanks for the practical feedback. Nice to know they play well with other chargers without melting. Senator, thanks for your practical opinion of my real world situation. All Options should be considered. Sandor - Vancouver sound guy
  18. I'm looking at the beachteks for a UHa plug on. I need the longest runtime I can get for a doc where battery changes for planted mics could be impossible. I know I can use lithiums, but I don't need 16 hours of run time, and I'm trying to save them $1000 on lithiums by buying 4 beachteks for $100. Reports with a plug on?
  19. Last pass was ok, but the flexibility of 1password working on all my devices and saving all my software license info is fantastic. Haven't used last pass die a couple years now. Maybe it's better now, but 1password has made my online life soooooo easy. Love it. And good support. Sandor - Vancouver sound guy
  20. Thanks for meeting up in Toronto Al. I'll likely put your bloop slate into service this weekend Sandor - Vancouver sound guy
  21. this thread seems to have died. I'm after the PSC one or another variety. Like the idea of hardware over a phone app with a reflective screen and minimal sunlight readability. Guess I'll keep asking google.
  22. Check out the local IATSE website, find the list of mixers and call them. Go down to set and get to know them. That's what I did. Friendly bunch. Sandor, Sound Guy (664/411a's/SRb/MKH60)
  23. +1 for the switronix stetup with LP60s. I know you said you had a mix of batts, so this might not be for you, but for the future it's a great setup.
  24. More feedback since last post. I've probably got about 120 days on each of my 4 rode lavs. Still happy w sound, although they are exposed on this show. Trashed my 4th cable....strain relief at connector seems to give up. Added some heat shrink tube above the connection and seems to be holding up over last 30 days. WINDSCREEN HACK: I bored out 4 sanken windscreens to use w rode lavs. I smear a touch of snot tape to the mic head to make sure the windscreen doesn't slip off, as the o ring is no longer there in the screen. Works like a charm. Sandor, Sound Guy (664/411a's/SRb/MKH60)
