    They make a two channel receiver as well.

    Border Microphone / Bodge job

    If you have Tram style lav mics they make a holder that lets you use the mic as a boundary mic. Its a very small footprint and you can tape them directly to the table. I've used them this way without a Dugan mixer and they sounded pretty good. I would use three for five people. Here's a link to show what I'm talking about: https://www.trammicrophones.com/sale/detail.asp?partno=TR-BBLTD

    Alexa Mini audio menu

    Hi Bob, I just looked at the manual for the mini and as you mentioned there is no mention of summing channel one to both channels. I'm guessing something was mis wired especially if your experience was different with the next mini. I've seen other cameras that do have that feature. Its usually when they just have one source for audio and want it on both channels. The second channel can then be set lower for safety. As part of my camera set up routine I always confirm that one is going to one and two is going to two discretely. If I skip that step then Murphey's law will surely be invoked. BB

    RF issues with RF multi + SNA600

    I have a similar set up and it has helped my reception. Nomad 10, PSC Rf multi, two SNA600, four LR receivers with battery replacers powered by common battery. I don't have the unused SNA connectors terminated. The unit lives in the bottom of my bag.

    LT/LR vs SRc

    As an owner of four LT/LRs which I use in the bag, I would say go for the SRC. It would get really messy mounting two LRs in addition to all the other gear you have mounted. Even with the battery sled you'll appreciate the simplicity of just mounting one device. As for range you're not likely to be to far away from your subjects since you're shooting them as well. There shouldn't be much difference between the SRC and the stand alone receivers.

    Zynaptiq plug ins

    Thanks Philip, I think its good to have options. I've had the most success with Acon Digitals Deverberate. I haven't done so well with Izotope's De-reverb unless its just slight room reflections. I'm looking on the Zynaptiq website and I can't seem to find any manuals unless you only get them when you download the plug ins. I wish Zynaptiq had some video tutorials showing exactly how these plug ins work so we can get the most out of them. I'd be very likely to purchase if I could get better than just marginal results.

    Zynaptiq plug ins

    I'm curious how many here are using the Zynaptiq plug ins? Specifically Unveil, Unfilter, and UnChirp. I've downloaded the trials and really didn't have as much success as I would have liked using these tools. I'm not blaming the software, its likely me not understanding exactly what I should be doing. I'm an Isotope 6 user and I'm fairly good at figuring things out. I searched and found an early thread with Jay Rose and one of the co founders of Zynaptiq which was useful. Jay's first reaction was about the same as mine I think. If anyone here has experience with these three plugins could you tell me how you learned them and if they're working well in your work flow.

    Sennheiser MKH-416T hiss

    I don't know that T Powered mics can be more troublesome but they would indeed be much older since its been a long time since they've been manufactured. At least that's what I surmise. What mixer/recorder are you using this mic with just out of curiosity?.

    Sennheiser MKH-416T hiss

    You could send it to Pete Verrando and get it modded to 48 volts. He could also tell you if the mic is up to spec. I had an older Schoeps T power mic done by him and it's the best money I ever spent.
  14. I've done a number of streaming shows for hospitals and doctors. One was a live operation using the minimal invasive robot surgery interface to do a prostrate operation. As Philip pointed out to do a pro show you need pro crew and gear. We did it with a fly pack control room and had audio, director, video engineer, and camera. We also had live interaction with the internet audience via email and phone, and VOIP. It was like any other show except instead of going out on a satellite link etc., it went to the web. The streaming potion was handled by an independent company that had a rack full of gear to make sure it went out. BB

    Unusual lav hiding gear

    I've been looking at those. Is there adhesive on it already? Nothing really sticks well to silicone. Thanks for the comprehensive look at these! Bernie
