    TC cable

    What Dalton said. http://www.l-com.com/coaxial-rg174-50-ohm
  2. I made one 6' long. Wish it were 8'. Cheers.

    The Fascinating World Inside of a Piano

    What a masterful piece of mechanical engineering. I’ve been around pianos all my life in the studio and I had no idea the complexity of the mechanism.

    Denecke JB-1 Dcode Compact Syncbox.

    Charlie said in another thread that it charges via USB.

    NEW Mozegear TC Generator Kit $199

    Nice. Hope they changed the flashing duration of the LED and made the LED green. 2 biggest complaints from camera. Hopefully the charge voltage is 12V. https://www.mozegear.com/product-page/qbit-x2

    Alexa Mini audio menu

    I encountered a breakout cable that came with the camera that was wired wrong. I plugged in to the XLR’s, channel 1 only out of my 633, showed up on both of the minis channels. I used my cable and it worked correctly. Something to consider.

    Why AES camera feeds for prod. sound?

    Gigs were you have to feed multiple cameras, if your recorder has limited number of outputs, set it to AES. One XLR equals two channels of audio.
  8. Is there an new site for D/Ling this list. I can't get it to load. TIA

    In ear monitors for production sound

    I use the Ultimate Ears and they are great, but not cheap.

    25 db cable attenuator scheme trs - trs

    Ditto to what Allen said. You can be fairly loose with the component values. Even if it changes the impedance slightly, you’ll still be fine. You can build these in TA3 connectors with 1/8 W resistors. They’re quite small. But you need to have good eyes, and a steady hand.

    IFB on the cheap.

    Check your PM. I have a Comtek system for sale.
  12. Outputing from my SD 633 X3/X4 outputs to a Lectrosonics UM400 for IFB. Straight cable is a little too hot. Needs a pad of say -20 db. Handy with a soldering iron. What value are you guys using for resistors R1 and R2?. Diagram below. Don't need a lesson in Ohms law, just too lazy to create a spreadsheet on my own for something that I'm sure a dozen of you guys have done. TIA Or is there enough gain if I wire the TA5 into the lectro line level? I should have known to look on the Lectro site first. Found this. Since I can't delete this entire post, I'll leave it hear so it may help others.

    NFL Boom ops

    Used to be, it was just us NFL Films guys. Now the team may have a guy, and sometimes the network will have a guy. The team generally doesn't like it one bit. You probably won't be booming on the sideline unless you're working for one of those 3 groups. There's a very select group of Films guys that do that job. The NFL has regulations on where we can stand and when. I also expect NFL/teams to get rid of all the booms except those of NFL Films guys. It's getting a little much.

    1/4 Track Playback Head On A Nagra IV-S ?

    Hit up Pete Verrando. He restores them and is quite knowledgable.

    Sound is no longer respected on set?

    Like some of the others have said, it’s always been that way. I’ll drive this in a new direction with the observation that in movie credits, sound department used to closely follow camera department. Now, who knows where they’re listed. Right behind the directors PA sometimes. Of course used to, only department heads were listed and credits were over in 30 seconds. Times change.
