    I've been doing FOH sound for what seems like a lifetime.Grew up with live music and a band, and have just kept going.
    I've held a lifetime of jobs, from construction, to being self employed.
    I'm totally hooked on location sound and am following the dream...

  1. Checking the JW Sound Forums between setups Also -- VERY nice machine work. Looks great.
  2. I suffered the same issue for several months. Other fails would include the unit locking up and/or going into update mode. Lots of messing about, replacing aux usb power cables, etc, etc. -- Nothing worked. I replaced the USB cable from the 688 to the CL12 and the problem is solved. No more need for the aux power input, no more weird errors, no more shutdowns or lock-ups. I suggest replacing the factory USB cable with a good quality cable first, and seeing what shakes loose.
  3. My vote is for an error in wiring. .
  4. Thanks !!! - Updated and experimenting now - FWIW, I like it so far. Way faster to change freqs, especially with the 25 step turned off. Good update mate !
  5. I have a pair of ipad mounts from Charger City. --- This one specifically -- I bought them from Amazon on the suggestion of Whit Norris and others. They have survived daily use on the cart for 2 years with zero fails or malfunctions. Joints are still tight, knuckles are still solid, and the unit works flawlessly. http://www.chargercity.com/Heavy-Duty-4-WAY-Multi-Adjustable-Joint-Aluminum-Alloy-Microphone-Muisc-PoleBar-Clamp-Mount-c-4211-p-732.html I feel sure they must make the same for iPad mini. All of that said, I have no idea on availability in the UK, but there seems no logical reason why not.
  6. I just want to know how the Dante is going to work. What will be the total track count with Dante, how many will be Dante In/out, and how many will be something else, and what else they will be. Also, will there be trim adjustments with Dante or will Dante kill the trims as in the Cantar?
  7. I've had no trouble with them moving under their own volition on my mics (I have 2) - But then again, I handle them with noted caution. Not that I'm suggesting that you are man-handling them, just that I am careful. They are expensive AF and took me a long time to afford.
  8. It's not a direct answer to Tri-Level, but I just finished 3+ weeks of shooting with 4 cameras running 20-30(or more) minute takes. Tentacle attached to each camera and everything jammed once in the am, again at lunch. Post checked in with me at least twice per day and they advised sub frame accuracy across 2 recorders, 3 slates, and 4 cameras for the entire duration of the gig. Post is well pleased.
  9. I love my 688, but yes the external Mic option is terrible IMHO. I am using the standard 7506 with Shure mic and have tested it with other mics to diagnose. The slate Mic has plenty of gain, but comms are so soft that I have to speak very loudly with the Mic right at my lips for the boom op to have a prayer of hearing me. I have tried with and without the CL-12 and with other mics to verify results. Best I can figure is something in the machine. I called and requested a workaround and was assured that my request would get passed along..... We shall see. Sent from my HTCONE using Tapatalk
  10. Active shooter scenarios can be best dealt with by offering copious amounts of suppressing return fire, followed by highly prejudiced apprehension.
  11. Not in any particular order, but the following tidbits may help for some poor sap in my chair later on. And this is a bit of a follow up for you fine people who tried to help me wade through this. I was sent a particular problem file and -- on my lap top -- it did distort on the higher parts of the dialogue. Not a valid test really, and laptop speakers are notoriously bad, but it is a note. I didn't try to play it anywhere else. All the grownups including Director and EP were provided dailies from DIT each day for the run of the show. DIT used my mix track as the audio for dailies. Not one single complaint. In fact, good comments were happily received by me from them on a recurring basis. On each and every sound roll I did a verbal headslate and included no less than 30 seconds of tone at -20 as the first track. Also included in this was a description of what the tone was, the machine used, and specs used. Whether they used this reference tone is unknown. I have received no further comment or question from edit, and they didn't fire me, so either the system/workflow got sorted or they have binned the whole lot. I'm betting on the former. Thanks everyone for all you did to help -
  12. To date, I've been abundantly professional, tactful, and diplomatic in helping edit to find the source of the problem. Sadly, the "I've never had this problem before....grrrrr!" came today. So - What I've done now is explain - without aiming blame to any person, place, or process - that the issue lies somewhere in the file transfer/transcoding process. I just don't know what else I can do here. I'm trying desperately to help and be nice, but it seems to be failing. The response I got was that I should be taking the files from my Deva, using WaveAgent to check my files, then send them to DIT where they should again be checked with WaveAgent, then run through FCP7 to check compatibility before the DIT transcodes them with DaVinci....... Yes -- I asked for a workflow test 5 weeks ago. Yes --- my request was ignored. SMH ..........
  13. Jeff, Sadly- edit is in LA, and we are in Atl. so a set visit isn't possible. I've asked for a sample of what they have so I can compare to what I have and see if in can determine anything. I am asking around a good bit, but the problem is that very few here actually use FCP for high level work, or they haven't used it since film school. :/ Thanks for all the help so far... Keep it coming
