  1. The kid is now getting his drum lessons via FaceTime, the Focusrite Scarlett Solo made it very simple to setup. Two ins, two outs, sets up in seconds if you have a usb port. Focusrite claims it'll work with current iPads via a usb hub. Long and McQuade carries them, if you're close to one of them. Stay safe, everyone. ST Toronto
  2. danke schöen, y'all. short notice hotel room vo, closest i can find in town is the chintzy moving pads from the storage places. thanks for the top secret tip, matthias, diese umzugsdecke sind perfekt!
  3. Thanks for the replies, i'm looking for something like these:
  4. anyone know where to score proper quilted sound blankets in berlin? they're proving surprisingly elusive. i've tried kortwich and a few g&l shops, so far no dice.
  5. my recent experiences on a trip from toronto to cairo may be worth sharing ... leaving toronto, i'm carrying on four anton bauer dionic 90's, carry on in a peli, taped, bagged individually. agent at the air canada counter asks if i'm checking any batteries. no, i'm my lithiums are in my carry on. not checking any batteries at all, she asks? air canada employees, she claims, have just that week (second week of march) received instructions to not let "any batteries" be checked. i have my rechargable aa's in my carry on also, i show her, we're good. i presume that she refers to
  6. agreed. i own both, i no longer use the super for anything quiet. speaking of which, anyone ever experience the super being gradually swamped by self noise? it's usually acceptably quiet, but every now and then it'll slowly so hissy that i'll need to swap it out. no idea what causes this, it happens indoors and outdoors, city and country, humid and dry ... noisy super cmit.wav
  7. thanks, everyone, for the interesting and very useful information. when the discontinuous tc value occured, i had just switched off the d4t. i suspect that switching off the d4t, as opposed to having it leave the reception range of the d4r (also part of the workflow test), causes enough noise to overwhelm the quite robust square wave tc signal. hard to tell though, listening to tc is something i only do on very special occasions. to be totally honest, mostly i'm trying to get a little more mileage out of my d4. while it's an excellent tool for any number of applications, it does
  8. hello, john. thank you for your reply. i am aware that ltc is essentially a stamp at the beginning of a clip. my workflow test was as follows ... tc from sd633 > lectro d4t. sony fs7 with XDCA-FS7 rear module receiving tc via d4r. the camera reads the tc perfectly well, and from a vast distance, as i would expect with the d4. however, when i try to create noise on the tc audio track by messing with the d4t, i can cause a bump in the camera's read of the tc. this doesn't cause any discontinuity in the video or the audio of the clip, but upon review of the resultant clip, the tc j
  9. there have been a number of useful discussions here concerning wireless transmission of timecode, but i've not been able to find an answer to the following question … what are the consequences in post production of time of day timecode that has a timecode "jump" in the clip? case in point: in my quest to make life a little easier for my hard-working associates in the camera department, i have in the past considered ways of using the camera hop as a timecode device, and eliminate the bulk of the sb3 box. the lectro d4, for example, could be used as a stereo hop, with the third channel bein
  10. this won't solve the op's problem, of course. but if you need to hear a walkie on set, how's about feeding it to your mixer?
