    Best Reporters Microphone

    While the RE50 is a classic for many reasons, I love the sound of my Beyer M58, and talent loves the longer stem too.

    macOS High Sierra: AFS File Format

    Thanks for your responses, everyone. I'll hold off on updating until fully backing up. Here's something interesting: For those who are upgrading on computers that did not originally include El Capitan (10.11) and above, should backup everything beforehand, and be prepared for an (unlikely) fresh wipe and installation. Because the boot drive's file format changes during the update to 10.13, if there is an issue, you cannot detect the boot anymore in Internet Recovery mode because the older OS recoveries are based on HFS format. You'll need to clean install the base OS (HFS) that was included with your Mac, while in Internet Recovery Mode, then reapply 10.13 High Sierra update afterwards.
  3. macOS 10.13 High Sierra changes the master file format to AFS/APFS. When that's installed, will the OS still recognize exFAT, HFS+, and other formatted external drives?

    Spying? More like attacking.

    Lectrosonics SMWB coming soon?

    The argument is about sticking to post production standards, and the risk of handing in work that doesn't match with your master recorder files.

    House of Cards Season 5

    Well the car shots are almost always at a stationary stage, with projected backdrops. In a BTS featurette, I think I saw stage design with an "SUV" divided into sections.

    In my experience, I never heard ticks, snips, zippers, etc when adjusting gain.

    VR: "High Altitude Ambience"

    This is all interesting information, and I'm sure they'll contact the apropro organizations. Thanks everyone!

    VR: "High Altitude Ambience"

    I'm recording an ambisonic VR series, and the director wants ambience tracks of a high-altitude establishing shot, facing directly downward at several downtown regions. Of course, it's an aerial cam shot, so mounting on a drone won't work. My first thought would be a weather balloon of some kind (silent), but would this be actually worth doing in the first place? Could this be better created in design rather than a multitrack recording? I'd imagine it would just be a blanket of traffic and broad noise. Another issue is that the mic positioning needs to stay fixed, looking in the same direction "forward". If the mic spins around, the processing won't match later either.

    Android App with Lectro RM sounds

    If it's just for sleep/waking, this could be more useful as homescreen widgets than a full screen app.

    What Car Do You Drive?

    VW Golf TDI. With the back seats folded down, I can fit a standard PSC cart in there, and barely some extras. I like a challenge.

    In-Depth Review: Betso Sharkie Active LPDA Antenna

    Thanks for your notes and clarification, Larry. I'll be updating the review to take this into account. The output signal level was the only numeric value I could reference, with the tools I had available on production. All systems performed realistically depending on location, and these levels typically correlated with how clearly I could hear the transmission. At the time of the review, I was unable to find the OIP of the ALP650 or UA874. Wisycom claims +43 dBm of third-order IP on its fin, however if SNR is the real game -- how much difference do these specifications truly make? Is this a case of which product better overcomes signal loss without adding as little unwanted noise to the constant SNR? Is there a point of diminishing returns?
