  1. 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.
  2. 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
  3. 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.
  4. 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?
  5. 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.
  6. 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
  7. 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.c1
  8. 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.
  9. 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.

  11. I have to admit that I don’t really get it. I suppose the smaller size would be nice for on-camera hosts or the like. Will this be able to tune to different modes? I could see this functionality be nice for a utility wiring off at the campers. If one were able to tune talent Tx directly, and have these frequencies saved for immediate recall, it would be a nice extension of the R1a.
  12. Well then, buy or rent a second recorder when needed. I don’t understand the problem. I’m sorry you feel entitled to have it all at the lowest price-point, but this isn’t the way the world works. As far as aesthetics are concerned, I agree that the mix-pre style encoders are kind of hideous (hoping we can dial the LED’s down to inf.). I had a brief conversation with SD a few weeks ago about a product like this, but it was far too late for any hardware changes. While I may still go this route one day, I feel there are still areas where it would have benefited SD to confer with a few e
  13. For something with a smooth and comfortable mid-range, and completely un-hyped, I like AKG K141 mkii. You should be able to find them used, as they are discontinued. I’ve never liked 7506’s or HD25’s for music, myself. That said, you’re likely to get as many different opinions as replies. I'm also a big fan of Grado's... he could get up to the 325's in his price range https://gradolabs.com/headphones/prestige-series/item/5-sr325e Phenomenal quality HP's with a very deep soundstage. Glorious for listening, but I'll admit I've never used them for mixing/writing.
  14. I somehow totally missed that you were originally asking about 8x, and assumed the heavy stuff. My mistake
  15. For rg8, I don’t crimp the pin. For 8x and 58, as well as 75 ohm cable, I do (but I don’t solder those). With a properly hot iron (think work station, not a 25 watt pencil iron), I can make the solder without melting the dielectric. I use flux and a well tinned tip (with kester leaded solder) to help with heat transfer and flow.
