  1. 95+% of all my gigs are people I've worked with before or are referrals by that same group of people. Unless you want to go for really low hanging fruit ("We need a sound operator man with a boom and 5 wireless things for $100 tonight in Palm Dale") on Craigslist, you're going to want to know someone in whatever area you move to as they'll likely be the ones getting you gigs / employing you.

    I guess at this price point you'd just have quite a few on hand and that way you never have to worry about batteries crapping out on you. Speaking of which, in ideal spaces, how many channels can you run simultaneously? Obviously in a busy area of 2.4ghz traffic I'd imagine your mileage would greatly vary.

    Malfunction of repaired COS-11

    Yeah "Money" doesn't work there anymore. That guy used to fix and make cables like no one else, wonder where he moved on to...

    Sound Devices Mix Pre-3 and Mix Pre-6

    I bet a PSC Solice Mini into a MixPre 10 with ISO's on 1-8 and then the mix routed into the "fixed" 9-10 input would sound really nice.

    Aren't most wireless video systems such as Teradeck in the 5ghz spectrum these days?

    Hows this for close to trouble ?

    I've been up there before and when I was ~100 feet from one of the transmitters, my Wrangler's soundbar (despite the stereo being turned off) played whatever FM radio signal was being broadcast through the speakers.

    Obviously jury's still out about all the features / sound of it all. That being said, all these trickled down high tech / pretty darn good pieces of kit definitely make myself envious for those just starting out as you could have an 8 track timecode recorder, boom and 4+ lavs for very very cheap. A little different than my used 416 and stereo Fostex I started out with only 10ish years ago!

    iZotope RX 7 tease

    Sweetwater has them too iZotope RX 7 Advanced Audio Editor - Upgrade from RX 1-6 Advanced ($299) iZotope RX Post Production Suite 3 Upgrade from RX 1-6 Advanced ($399) I'm leaning towards getting the Post Production Suite 3 since I do like Insight for metering

    What to do with 600-698 MHz wireless systems?

    I still have a couple channels of block 24 that I use for bigger gigs when I need a high count for wireless. My plan is to just use them to the bitter end in July 2020. They aren't worth a whole lot / have paid for themselves many times over (especially since I bought them used anyways to begin with). Yeah T-Mobile might start turning on 5G stuff in the mean time on a rolling basis but even then there's the guard band / duplex gap that can fit a few channels in for the next couple of years. This whole FCC situation is a pain in the ass that isn't fair but at the end of the day, I've got a business to run and I'd rather adapt than die.

    Dual Tumbleweeds

    Hmmm a duet of tumble weeds?

    Denecke JB-1 Dcode Compact Syncbox.

    Pretty cool. Weird they don't specify more about this internal LiPo battery. Part of it reads as though it's rechargeable but then other parts make it sound like it lasts 150 hours before having to be replaced? Says it can be "powered by micro usb" but doesn't say it can be recharged by it.

    iZotope RX 7 tease

    That's pretty wild. I'm still on version 4 Advanced. Wonder if they'll still let me leap frog up to 7.

    Oh man, the patented Lectrosonics Tumbleweed Alert System™ going off twice?!?

    Plug for Reaper

    I'm starting to like Reaper a lot. I still am using Pro Tools HD for my film mixes, however I've been using Reaper's Media Library functionality as my SFX database manager since it searches so darn fast and I can drag and drop directly from it into my Pro Tools timeline.

    Neil Young talks about analog vs. digital

    Saw Neil again play in Pasadena about a month ago. He's still in fine form! His current backing band is great too.
