    Ktek Squid vs. Rycote XLR holder MK II?

    I prefer to have my Lectro HM towards the base of the pole, so the Squid works great for my needs. And you can’t beat the KTek customer service. Two decades (for me) of solid assistance and care. Cheers, Evan

    Sanken Cs-M1 new mike

    What is the product code for this? I can’t seem to find it anywhere. Is it the INV-6 HG? Cheers, Evan

    Sound Backpack Rig

    I did a similar rig for a backcountry shoot in Jackson Hole, only I used my backup F8 recorder instead of my Nomads because I could wirelessly control the gain using an iPad (or even my iPhone!). It was clutch in that situation. I am often tempted to use it regularly, only I wish the Wingman app gave me the same functions as the F8 WiFi controller because I prefer everything else about the Nomad. I found with the backpack setup, a wireless boom approach will help keep your profile way down and give you some modicum of control over the boom input gain. Cheers, Evan

    Sanken Cs-M1 new mike

    I’ve been using the CSM1 in place of my CS3e for a couple of weeks now and I’m enjoying the sound and weight. Mostly docu-series material. Not too much swinging of the boom but when I do it’s been a joy to have the small profile when indoors with low ceilings. It’s sound matches my COS11s better than the MKh50 and it’s off axis rejection is great. It sounds closer in tone to a CS1 than my usual CS3e but now that I’ve moved to Sankens all around there appears (to my ears at least) a consistency between all my mics. Cheers, Evan Meszaros

    Sound Mysteries

    Gizmodo started doing these short documentaries about various “Sound Mysteries” throughout history. https://gizmodo.com/c/sound-mysteries The link below is for an episode about Carnegie Hall and the acoustic fallout after the 1986 renovations: https://gizmodo.com/what-caused-carnegie-hall-to-lose-its-famous-acoustics-1828033362 The other are interesting as well. Cheers, Evan Meszaros
  8. Can anyone recommend a stellar soundie in SF that also has leads on other crew in the area? My buddy is producing a couple of commercials there in the next few weeks and I’d like to hook him up with some friendly & talented locals. Thanks! Cheers, Evan Meszaros

    Zoom F8n.

    IIRC, the F8n inputs are mic/line switchable, whereas the F8 inputs are not. That’s a pretty big improvement. Cheers, Evan

    In ear monitors for production sound

    While they may not be in-ears (although I think the company makes a version that is) if anyone is interested in great sounding cans that can preserve your ears, I’ve been using the Puro BT5200 which features a Db monitor to gauge the volume and help audio fatigue and hearing loss from extended listening. The legitimatly flat frequency response is a bonus too. Double bonus: they sound amazing. Triple bonus: Bluetooth and cabled.

    bluetooth sound box

    A fellow soundie makes these and they’re really fantastic: https://demerbox.com/ It sounds great. It’s waterpoof. It floats. It’s nearly indestructible. It has a 50 hour (!!) battery. It has storage.... AND it’s hand made by one of us! Support each other! Cheers, Evan
