  1. Custom fit IEMs offer excellent noise isolation if you’re looking for something unobtrusive and great sound. Price isn’t as great though. Ive been using the Ultimate Ears Reference model that is supposed to offer a flat response. They’ve served me well.
  2. I’ve used Westones before but now I have custom fit Ultimate Ears. Love the custom fit stuff. Way more comfortable over the long day.

    I think this is a great design and the price isn’t bad either. I have a custom Protogear bag for my Cantar Mini and that was about $950. If the item works for your need and is well built than I have no problem with paying for it. ken, have you thought about adding versions that would work with the X3 and X3 Mini?
  4. I’ve got a JH24 with the auto locator sitting in my garage awaiting some long needed repairs. It’s mostly in working condition but has a few channels that need help and I think it needs one of the motors worked on. It is a great sounding machine for the money though. I picked it up in 2008 for around $2500.
  5. I’d love to know what you think. I saw these in Tom Williams kit in the URSA straps video and have wondered about them. Can’t beat the price!
  6. We were just starting to shoot episode 3 of our 12 episode season and we were shutdown for a minimum of 2 weeks, possibly longer. This order came from Disney HQ. I had a slow fall and a very slow winter and burned through savings so hopefully this doesn’t last too long otherwise I’m screwed.
  7. I believe the newest Cantar X3 firmware allows you to use the A10 rack with the Cantars hydra interface. So it is possible. My guess is it requires each manufacturer to build out their software to be compatible with it
  8. Has anyone tried out these Laizeske Field Monitors? They are really well priced and have some great features such as all aluminum construction, BNC inputs and a 4pin XLR for power. They also come with a sunshade and a U Mounting Bracket. It it seems that only B&H is carrying them for now and they seem to not stock them. Wanted to to see if anyone has tried them and to see if the quality is somewhat decent, IE will they hold up in the field. They make a 2 and 3 screen rack mount as well as single screen up to 24” I think. I’m eyeing a 10” or 13” to do a quad monitor setup on the cart. www.laizeske.com
  9. It really depends... the following is based off of personal experience and will be different for other productions. First, make friends with the grips. They usually, not always, see above from Philip, have lots of sound absorbing things. The smaller the shoot the more you’ll have to rely on your own equipment and setup. Thicker, black and white or even gray furni pads are an excellent way combined with stands. This works best for smaller spaces just because furni pads are smaller. In larger spaces, we work with the grips to see if we can get 12x blacks to help calm spaces. This seems to help in gyms or larger rooms. As stated it is getting harder with multiple cameras. I will also say that the most important thing is listening to what the dialogue sounds like naturally in the space with a good boom op and proper mic choice. I’m always surprised to hear scenes after it’s been posted and aired. Scenes/locations that I hated or didn’t think sounded very good have cleaned up really well and didn’t bother me after hearing it air. I personally believe that people are becoming to accustomed to the sound of wires and we are loosing the natural acoustics of what rooms should sound like even on tight close ups.
  10. Karl or Larry, Does the DSQD employ the same type of IQ filtering when in digital hybrid mode as the venue 2? I’ve read through the whole manual and don’t see anything about that tech. That’s one of my favorite features of the venue 2 and why I bought it versus a venue 1 system.

    Cold 5G

    I’ve used SRCs in cold temps and didn’t have any range issues or problems with dropouts. I have one early b1 block and a later b1 block. No issues with either. Could be the 5G but that is in the 600 range.
  12. I’ve used them twice now. First was for a documentary style race for a show company out on the Bonneville salt Flats. Camera teams were following the racers so we rigged up their packs with mics and PDRs. Worked great. They were still rolling after they got back from a multiple hour run. Also used one for a tandem paraglide. Rigged up the talent and rolled. Worked great. Super easy to jam with Timecode. Lithium battery operates at least 5 hours. We also used the split gain mode in case the runners got really loud for any reason.
  13. Worked a feature at 10,000’ in the middle of winter. CMIT5u was used the whole time without a glitch.
  14. I demoed Audio Limited, Wisycom, and Sony. I already own Lectrosonics analog FM and don’t like the digital transmitter options that are currently available. I want to start going digital because our spectrum is disappearing so that removed the Wisycoms from the options. I had to many issues with the audio limited and I didn’t like the Bluetooth app. The Sony’s had amazing range, especially on fins and that’s how i’ll mostly be using them. I like the remote control that they have over zigbee and they now offer a unislot compatible receiver. I also like the plug on transmitters for my booms over a lav pack. They sounded great. And just to be clear these are the high end Sony systems, not any of the cheaper ones they offer. I don’t know how many i’ll implement for talent wireless yet. Just booms for now. I should also mention that they are competitively priced with Lectro, Audio Limited, Wisycom
  15. If used with the RX-12, will you be able to output 24 channels of audio? 6 modules, 4 channels each is 24. There are 6 TA5 outputs so with AES you could technically do 24. Will the RX-12 support that?
