    What is your spare recorder

    Decided a while ago that there's no point selling mine. It's still worth a lot more to me as a backup than the €1k or so they go for now. Recently replaced the internal AA for the first time.

    Nice post. Was just listening to this David Rodigan interview which has me in the mood...

    URSA mini mount

    It's very smooth plastic. I had good results with them recently under synthetic material which was causing some issues with the rubbery Sanken rm11 mounts. Another useful option to have in the kit for sure.

    Deity Connect.

    They seem to be in a big rush to get it to market.

    Border Microphone / Bodge job

    I had a similar job recently. A panel of 12 service providers to a government department speaking informally. Identities confidential and the client only wanted the audio for transcription purposes so quality wasn't important, just intelligibility. Also they requested that I be as unintrusive as possible.... It was a long boardroom type table and I just left 6 mic packs with cos11s along the length of it in the centre. The Dugan automix really helped, but it was not production audio by any stretch. Client was happy and they got what they needed. If it had to be decent quality audio I would have hired in goosenecks for sure.

    Sound Devices MP-1 Mic Transformer Replacement

    Which transformer? Assuming it's the input and you want to replace it you'd be paying a $100 for a new one from Lundahl, and it could be just a loose pin. I'd send it to SD for a service.
  8. The Alchemists of Sound doc is highly recommended!
  9. Such a shame that they bought Midas.
  10. Thanks for this. I have just purchased a D100, so I may well be ordering this suspension in the near future.

    New from Rycote: Looks interesting

    I've been using the schoeps for years without a tacit and I've never heard that interference before. I've taken the tacit out of the chain in the last couple of weeks and no instances of interference since. That said it only happened twice, on two different shoots. One with radios up and one without so I wasn't sure what the cause was. Good to know, thanks.

    New from Rycote: Looks interesting

    I've experienced this interference as well. Brand new tacit in the bag between a schoeps cmc6/41 and a 633. No walkies, but I've heard it with and without Lectros on nearby. It's quite disappointing.

    Cheapo boom pole

    Just saw this suggested on the same page - a knock-off Boomboy : https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Easy-Hood-Metal-C-Stand-Audio-Microphone-Mic-Boom-Pole-Holder-Boompole-Support-Stand/32360241096.html?s=p

    Neumann KMR 81

    I've been using the 81 as my main mic for a few years. Lovely outdoors but can be quite RF prone - it can be virtually unusable near large power lines and masts in my experience. Condensation is another issue to be mindful of, but as long as you know to keep it in a warm dry place overnight and not leave it in a damp rycote (oops!) it'll be fine. Those things aside I much prefer it to the 416.
