  1. I often encounter the following on set: I can’t understand a line / certain words delivered on set. I‘ll speak to the director about it. Two common reactions: one: I can understand everything just fine. Don’t interfere with the acting! two: ok - you can talk to the actor. If I‘m lucky the actor appreciates my concern and can adapt. More often than not the next take got the lines clean and crisp but the acting is suddenly so dull and poor - it’s not gonna make it through editing. Reaction again from Director: Happy now?! Clean sound but shitty acting. Great!
  2. Ben Frost is the composer on 1899. He was doing the score on Dark as well. Fabulous music if you ask me. He is also very interested in sounds in general. Had a long chat with him on set. He even bought a Nagra to record effects and instruments! The use of pop songs was at least on Dark a habit for the end of each episode. They would create a montage sequence along with it. Give it a try!! It’s gonna be entertaining and puzzling.
  3. proper trailer out now. Streaming from 17th of Nov on Netflix
  4. I can only answer the one scenario: my UST accidentally used 48V on a Super-CMIT. Checked the mic and got in contact with Schoeps directly: no problem at all.
  5. shooting CUs with a short lense on a Venice - the fan noise is driving me nuts. It does go „silent“ when in record but is still way too noisy for my liking. Having 3 bodies they are all the same. The Cedar does help me here and gives me an idea what post will accomplish later on.
  6. thank you Jeff for having us and having your / our site!! Just donated and I‘m sure many will follow. Best, Matthias
  7. just bought another Panamic Maxi 3 seg. Was fine for 12 shooting days before it started creaking as all the ones before. I‘m done for good with this particular model. Something is off. Basically 4x different Maxi poles in 3 years and no solution to the creaking. It’s very annoying and sad.
  8. first official trailer is online:
  9. my only advice: record ALL and EVERY rehearsal that you get without SFX going. Just doing this as I‘m typing. SFX wind machines and water pumps are noisy as hell. Can’t hardly hear any dialogue.
  10. did you test (yourself) how bad it would be if one hears oneself in the Comtek feed? If it’s an analog system there shouldn’t be any delay.
  11. I was excited at first but as said they seem to be designed for close micing high SPL. The new Schoeps CMC1KV and the CMC1SO are perfect for plants. Especially the KV with endless mounting options with little magnets.
  12. I‘m moving to a new home and look what I have found in one of the 300 boxes:
  13. Zaxcom TRX743 with AES digital cone. Get a battery mod by Gene (or use an ext Powerbank) and you are good for 5-6hrs.
  14. you just found the top secret solution. Don’t let it snap! Have your index finger on the purple part and let slide back into the locking position.
  15. just did a test with the HT SM2 on my regular IFB receivers EK300. Not convinced. They sound dull in comparison to my regular Sony‘s and also pronounce the noise floor of the EK more than the Sony‘s. What’s your findings?
  16. as all my signal were coming in on RF anyway the Cooper didn’t have that much influence in the sound but the preamps in my TXs. But as I said: the limiter on the D24 drove me nuts! That problem just didn’t exist with 208&Fusion.
  17. no crashes so far. Done nearly 200 days now with the D24. Coming from an analog mixer it took a while to find some limiter settings that I can live with. For some reason I never heard any limiter on my Fusion 12 and also not on my Nomad 12. D24 limiters sound different. Not so transparent. Just try and not hit them …
  18. Recent build and new logo! there is an easter egg in my logo - who can find it??
  19. I have an 15 years old Maxi3seg - no problem. A new Maxi4seg - no prob. Just the new Maxi3seg is problematic. Since it happened with 2 different handle-Segments now one could assume that it’s a design flaw with that particular model. I don’t know …
  20. Canford exchanged the handle segment. Unfortunately now 1 year later I have the same problem again with the same boom pole. To me it feels as if the handle segment is not stiff enough in it self and does rotate in tiny moves around the end stop creating little creaks. But again: Canford really helped to identify the problem in the first round
  21. I started out with Schoeps but wanted something more easy to deploy and bought the now tested arsenal of mics. In the end I always went for the Schoeps whenever possible because I KNEW I could achieve a better result. If the one option you have is the 4097 then you probably happy cause you can’t A-B them. And in post they will get rid of the hiss anyway.
  22. haven’t done a AB comparing between ZMT3 (3V) and ZMT4 (5V). Might help with the noise floor too but I think mostly with the dynamic range.
