  1. If he has a 2 input focusrite, he likely also has outputs on it. Use this to feed your return
  2. How are you getting sound IN to VTR?
  3. Can you feed the coms from the Qtake? This will ensure that sound is synced to the picture delay. The only time this will be problematic, is if the director is close enough to set to hear the difference in the bleed through their cans +the delayed feed. This would be a problem with the added delay approach as well though
  4. I would agree that, personally, I feel more is made of this than is really there. I juuuust moved from my analog board to a control surface. I didn’t worry about wireless latency then, and I don’t worry about it now. If what we’re talking about, and really worrying about, is phase correlation in the time domain, it’s a bit of a moot point, as both talent and the boom are constantly moving. Further to this point, if we know that sound moves at aprox 1ms/ft, then the difference In arrival time between a wireless mic with a 3ms delay, and that of the hardlined boom at a distance is even smaller. If we start adjusting delay times to accommodate for the wireless latency, it’s really just moving the potential problem (not removing it). That said, if you are mixing wireless brands and/or technologies, I could see wanting to get all of your wireless latencies adjusted to match one another. I suppose it’s possible that this is more of an issue for some in certain facets of our industry than mine. I rarely find myself mixing booms and wires 1:1 for any length of time. I’m generally just grabbing a line or chunk of dialog that the boom can’t get to…Even here, my finger is constantly riding the boom level while listening for both background consistency and combing between sources. If I hear a problem, a simple polarity flip usually corrects for it. That’s my experience, but the physics doesn’t change.
  5. Saw this yesterday. What a sad day for the industry! There were very few like him, then or now... A deep talent and generous spirit.
  6. To add to the above post... as an alternative to drilling the axle for use with a cotter pin, you could use a “shaft collar” to retain everything.
  7. Heavy duty 2" velcro. Done. You'll get the added benefit of a touch of shock absorption as well. No need to over think these things
  8. As a Secret Santa gift one year, a Camera Op picked me and had a custom shirt made... Black T-shirt... the front said "F**k Sound", and the back "No, F**k You!"). I added the asterisks for this post. Needless to say, I never wore that one on set. While I appreciated that his heart was in the right place, It was more aggressive than passive aggressive.
  9. I would honestly be surprised to see this take off on “big jobs” either. I would assume the studios would have security concerns in sending sensitive footage over a network. I think, as someone alluded to earlier, something like news could be a viable application. Maybe studio sitcoms ? Certain commercials?
  10. A more thorough understanding of signal follow would be a good start. No, this shouldn’t be hard. Re-terminate both ends as desired. Be mindful of continuity.
  11. Until recently, I was getting far greater RF range from my bag via SRC’s than my Venue 2 on the cart. So much so, that I sent my Venue to Lectro for a checkup. Everything seemed to check out to spec. The performance of my Venue improved dramatically when I switched from the tuned dipoles I had been using to filtered Wisy fins. My bag rig uses SNA’s with an Audio Wireless filtered distro
  12. If the Litz doesn’t work for you, you could consider Teflon hookup wire for internal repairs. Best place to buy is oddly eBay, as it gets pricy by the spool https://www.ebay.com/itm/32-30-28-26-24-AWG-Silver-Plated-PTFE-Wire-Assortment-50-feet-SPC/383636195713?_trkparms=aid%3D1110006%26algo%3DHOMESPLICE.SIM%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D225118%26meid%3D80288ef615e44f8aa14e8d1f71ec79b2%26pid%3D100935%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D12%26mehot%3Dpf%26sd%3D173929462870%26itm%3D383636195713%26pmt%3D1%26noa%3D0%26pg%3D2332490%26algv%3DSimplAMLv5PairwiseWebWithDarwoV3BBEV2b%26brand%3DThermax&_trksid=p2332490.c100935.m2460
  13. I recommend reinforcing the weight at the the back of aluminum drawers if possible. Not so much for standard use and stowage, but for the time bouncing around on the back of the truck. I've had experience in the past with the aluminum rack ears allowing the drawers to sag and deform over time. I now have just my lower drawer strapped to the rear of my cart in addition to the front rails, and this one drawer supports the drawers above it just fine. I hope that was clear.
  14. Just to go there, a Schoeps or an 8040 are a very different case than a 47. I only mention on account of the “I dare“ proclamations. The 121/122 and 57 combo is still pretty widely used on guitar cabs. For snare, I’ll use a 57 on the bottom head, but for top I like an EV 468. If that doesn’t work, a 57 to the shell and no top. I record full bands less and less then days, however, so take it with a grain.
