    The Cost of "Wide & Tight"

    "Wide and Telephoto", as one veteran DP once put it to me.

    RIP Kevin Ward - TAI Audio

    I spoke to Kevin a few times on the phone this summer - always a wonderful attitude. See ya later, Kevin. Bob Marts

    Sound carts on process trailers/camera cars.

    I once spent a long night with my cart on a merry-go-round. I couldn't get decent radio mic reception from the closest stationary hiding spot, so I found a wheel chair lockdown spot on the opposite side of the merry-go-round from where we shooting a long dialog scene. The wheel chair holder fit the spread of my PSC upright sound cart wheels perfectly, so there I sat all night going around and around (trying not to get dizzy).

    Sound Has Speed?

    From a 1972 ad
  7. Most of us know of the Stellavox and Uher 1/4" tape film sound recorders, but I bet not many know that Sony tried it's hand at a portable time code recorder. I saw a prototype at an AES show once but never saw it on the market.

    Hanging a sound blanket

    Thank you. I have impressed a few grips with this :-)

    Hanging a sound blanket

    Here's a technique I invented years ago for hanging a sound blanket. You need one C-stand with an arm plus 1 more arm and head. This set-up lets you stretch the blanket out tight and you don't have to deal with the No2 grip clips loosening up or popping off.

    50 Years Ago Today

    Fifty years ago today.
  12. I still own it but a lot of the caps dried out and it got a bit noisy. I keep thinking I'd like to have someone overhaul it but that could be expensive. It has really nice EQ and headroom. I still use an analog panel though - Cooper 208D.
