  1. Olle - I'm in London, UK. Did you get the Einstok? Anchor Porter is close too. Brooklyn Mary's maple - gorgeous winter brew, hard to get though. Delirium Noel is the one though, if you're over here sometime, we'll go and grab one!
  2. I'll admit one of the links you showed me there must have passed me by - a handy thread too. Thanks Fablemeister
  3. Thanks for the informative responses guys. Those of you who have compared the two models have been a big help- which is precisely what I couldn't find by using the fabled search bar. Will probably go with TL-40s. Cheers.
  4. Looking at getting a couple of OST lavs. Can't decide which. Most of my work involves hidden mics. Who has experience using either/both models? Cheers
  5. I use an MK-012. I like it, but like others have said, they don't have tonnes of reach. Handling noise isn't all that bad in an Invision mount, never used it in anything else, but those rycote mounts are awesome anyway - well worth a shot. Ive also used the AKG Blueline hyper, and I did prefer it on some counts.
  6. I really love those DPA's. Then I am a big fan of the COS11's, been ages since I used the DPA's but I do think I'd have them over the Sankens. However, that is just me.
  7. Apparently one of the guys from Cooke has a broken S2 that he uses as a pen holder.
  8. Great to see this, I'm really big on my crazy world beers. Nils oscar ctrl alt del is great stuff, as is their God Lager. Strongly recommend Einstok porter as well. Awesome stuff. My all time favourite is Delirium Noel (Delirium Christmas). Just incredible.
  9. Did the usual "phones, please" thing and the DP relayed it to some other crew, and said about how phones ruin takes/distracting it is. Next take, a phone goes off. I had a bit of a whinge, as did the 1st, as did a few people........ The phone belonged to the DP. Forgot to put a battery in a radio once as well. Stupid mistake, luckily camera didnt do a great job so i went to "swap" the battery and all was sorted. Guess you learn by them
  10. I also use an HD-p2, but with an SQN 4S. I really like the setup. However, the gig I'm on at the moment demanded iso's, so they rented me a 788, pic attached. Really enjoying using it, but obviously a very different sound to what i'm used to. An SQN recorder would be a dream. Radios are Micron w/Sankens. Powered by an IDX NP1 with Hawkwoods Distro. Easily does a day's shooting.

  13. I've heard "sound spud" - usually said too fast for anyone to notice we're talking about potatoes
  14. I am the lucky owner of an SQN "been everywhere, heard everything" t-shirt. Joseph Parys at SQN was nice enough to send me one.
  15. I use Pro Tools 10 and its solid. It's worth getting the keyboard stickers and making up your own "editors keys". An external firewire HD is a must - Pro Tools has never been solid on slow internal drives. Presonus faderport is very lovely too.
  16. Even works well in the UK - not much to do with radios does anymore!
  17. The workaround for me has meant putting the CL8 on top (prefer it there anyway) and the Micron's nice and high in the bag (antenna bottoms at CL8 top). It's not perfect, but it's OK. It's got the SSD in there. Don't know how much difference it makes compared to the HDD version.
  18. I've used the 4060 and really liked them. Quite hot, but lovely sound. They've also got a ton of other uses, that not a lot of other lavs have. But then again, rules are made to be broken
  19. My favourites are the HK Actors. Awesome speakers. I've got a JBL Eon 10- again, surprising volume for a small box. QSC's are nice also, I prefer them to Mackie.
  20. It's a TV sitcom, and the general concensus is that we're going to use a proper slate. Regarding jam synching the leaf blower, do they hold ok after battery changes? I'd heard that they don't. Thanks all.
  21. Hello people. Pretty new here. Doing a series shot on Scarlet, and basically, I'm looking for opinions on the best way to get timecode onto the Red. Looking at going wireless from the 788. Either that or Lockits. Who's had relative success with the Scarlet? I know it's not ideal... Cheers Max
