  1. I was perusing the web when I came across an article talking about this "Odyssey" x86 board. https://www.seeedstudio.com/ODYSSEY-X86J4105800-p-4445.html Key Feature Intel® Celeron® J4105, Quad-Core 1.5-2.5GHZ 8GB Ram Dual-Band Frequency 2.5GHz/5GHz WiFi/ Bluetooth 5.0 Intel® UHD Graphics 600 Dual Gigabit Ethernet Integrated Arduino Coprocessor ATSAMD21 ARM® Cortex®-M0+ Raspberry Pi 40-Pin Compatible 2 x M.2 PCIe (B Key and M Key) Support Windows 10 & Linux OS Compatible with Grove Ecosystem Seems to have an interesting combination of features between being able to run Windows (or Linux), run off either 12v-19v DC or 12v USB-C. Maybe would make a good little playback machine built into a cart? Not sure if you can utilize that built in ARM processor to run Android apps? or whatnot but can't beat the price at $188 USD
  2. This is a bit random as they aren't really known but I've been having some nice BNC cables made by "American Coaxial Industries" who you can contact and order custom stuff or they have a ton listed on their ebay store (seems they are based on the outskirts of Los Angeles). So far I've had some BNC to BNC timecode cables and a couple of antenna SMA to BNC from them and they seem to be holding up well? Mileage will vary as I haven't put them through the extremes yet considering I only started buying from them a couple months before the pandemic hit but they survived a few weeks in rural Africa on a rather challenging set so so far so good... https://www.ebay.com/str/americancoax1
  3. Why are they trying to get us to pay for something that is the DIT's job? Why should we be responsible and assume risk for all the files? Yes, I download the files on my backup drive at home once I return and keep them for 6-12 months but mostly so if a client calls and has a question about not being able to find something, I can simply listen to whatever the project was and respond appropriately.
  4. Same kind of gigs for me so far too. A lot of "one off" days on sound stages with minimal crew. Even have something on Thursday where they are going to have us all take a COVID test (both kind of antibody blood tests) via some sort of private medical group that will be on site before we are even allowed inside the building.
  5. Ah, that would explain it then.
  6. Has anyone bought a set of one of these yet and put it through a good test? Curious to know how well the camera hop (TC+Audio) feature is working out for folks as I am in need of purchasing some new TC boxes anyways and this might be a good solution to combine the hop + TC on the cheap.
  7. Do you have emails saying how much she was going to pay you? If so, I'd give her a deadline to pay you otherwise tell her you are going to take her to small claims court. If she doesn't pay, take her to court and make sure to bring documentation of every correspondence you've had with her.

    Good news for my waistline but bad news for my soul and heart. Well, maybe not my heart either...

    Seems like a great solution for us non Dante folks. Inquiring stomachs want to know though, what's the crafty setup these days on set...
  10. I wonder if MixAssist and NoiseAssist can both be ran simultaneously on the mixpreii series?
  11. Dang, that's one clean Alfa! I'm sure she drives as well as she looks too. If there ever was a saying that encapsulated my car life! Having had only really ahd American big V8 classics, I wasn't well versed on dual carb setups until recently when a buddy of mine got a '72 BMW Bavaria (in good shape for the age but definitely a project). Has the factory dual Zenith carbs and man, a bit of a learning curve on that one! They sound great at full throttle though. Spent Sunday helping out a buddy tune up (and fix an exhaust collector leak) on his new '70 GTO 455 4 speed. 500 lb-ft of torque and boy does it throw you back into your seat!
  12. K-Tek makes pouches for this too. They sell 3 for $20 I believe.
  13. My 8060 is my go to shotgun mic. I like how forgiving it is yet still maintains being directional. Great shotgun choice for unscripted / doc stuff where you don't know who's talking next because of its off axis forgiveness as you quickly change focus to another speaker.
