  1. Not, TV/film but it has always amused me that in the product photo for the Sachtler Harness (formerly Petrol) the model is holding the boom upside down. You'd think a company making equipment for audio professionals would consult professionals...
  2. Just to be clear, you're asking a group of professional sound mixers "Please give me your expertise, for free, on the equipment to buy so I don't have to hire you or people like you in the future" So with all due respect, no comment.
  3. Now I'm being pedantic, There's no such thing as Owens Corning 704. (or at least not sold anymore) There's a 703, 705, 706, and 707. The number is a formulation number and does not denote material size. 703 and 705 comes in thicknesses of 1, 2, 3 or 4 inches. 706 and 707 only in 1 or 2 inches.
  4. No experience with it, but this popped up in my feed recently – It looks to be a cross between the Cineeye and a mid level HDMI/SDI transmitter/receiver combo. $650 puts it decidedly in the low mid range and would provide a solid longer range link to the cart as well as a shorter range wifi signal to people on set. https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1507628-REG/hollyland_mars_400s_mars_400s_sdi_hdmi_wireless.html
  5. If the editor was working off of a single mixed down audio track and clipped it when making your edits, then your version 2 would work. But what you really need is an EDL (Edit Decision List) and Conformalizer or EdiLoad (or another automatic conform app) or you'll need to go through the EDL and make all the changes manually.
  6. Do the plugs need to be removable? i.e. Do they still need them to be windows sometimes or do they need to be accessible as a means of egress? If you just need to seal up the window bucks and they are semi-permanent (can be uninstalled but are meant to be left in place for the long term) I'd fill up the window with an insulation that has a high NRC value – like Owens Corning 703 or Rockwool Safe 'n' Sound. I'd then put in the opening a basic wood frame and attach a piece of drywall. Then I'd caulk the seams with silicon, tape the joints and paint. There are 2 ways sounds transmit, through mechanical coupling – sound vibrates wall, vibrations move through structure, structure vibrates air on the other side – and air gaps/leaks. So the above method fills up the hole (window) with a ton of material that is resistant to the mechanical vibration, and sealing the hole seals the air leaks. The other thing to consider, is if you have a lot of low frequency sound problems you'll need really thick and or heavy walls to slow that sound from leaking out. Other sound transmission suggestions is to add another layer of drywall to the inside of the room sandwiching a layer of greenglue, staggering the seams over the original wall seams and calking the joints – but that can get expensive fast.
  7. no reason it wouldn't work, other than the limitations of the super small diaphragms of lav mics it'll probably be just as good or better than the 4060s (because of the CORE circuitry and newer design)
  8. I've just gone with IEMs and off the shelf 3M earmuffs. I've never liked the Sony headphones – I would love a high noise variant of the HD25/26s to match my cans
  9. You'd need the "Platinum" License (which can be rented for a reasonable day rate) but the Wavetool app can give you 4 client feeds that broadcast over wifi to an iphone/ipad app https://wavetool.fi/ You'd need a computer to run the software, but it'll take dante input and let you matrix mix the sources
  10. I'd use one as a fancy pistol grip for sound effects and ambience recording, but the 50cm collapsed length of the Small VdB is short enough... either that or for laughs when rocking up to set with a mini-pole. I haven't seen the price for a pocket, but I'm sure it's around $200... and that's around $200 too expensive for a joke
  11. I'd recommend the VdB Small – perfect for doc work, fits into a pelican carry on, has the largest full to collapsed length ratio that I've seen. At just shy of 7' it is a very usable doc/eng pole. If you (for some reason) still want to go smaller, they have the "pocket" which is 12" to 42" but other than specific situations, I don't think you'd want something that small
  12. You must be the only person to buy the RX200 slot receiver
  13. These mics have become popular for plants these days. Any update to Zaxcom compatibility?
  14. Yes, analog out – but only from the receiver side, will not convert dante to analog (but will do dante to AES)
