    DPA 4061, Best prices?

    I have a microdot adapter for Shure if you find yourself in need.

    Advice for a novice

    Sure, the 416 might not be the best sounding mic for professionals that get put into many varying locations and talent scenarios, but it’s a fine sounding, quiet microphone that is extremely reliable. There are a ton of comparison videos on YouTube, as well as discussions on this forum. Ultimately, it will come down to personal preference and budget. I’d suggest learning how to operate your new recorder and plugging in as many mics as you can get your hands on, uploading some tests to YouTube and seeing what will work vs. your budget.

    sd 664, time code duration, it reset to zero

    The manual (p 69) says up to 2 hours after power off. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Assuming you are using a recorder with one, you would use the built-in slate mic. If not, I would default to the boom mic and make a note as to what track contains verbal slates for post in your sound report. Be consistent. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I think Calrec was known more for their consoles. Still fetch quite a lot of money on the used market. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Tips & Tricks for concealing lavs in SUITS

    I always mic the tie knot like Nick stated, but I have moleskin layered over the hush lav my Cos-11 is encased in. I also make sure the mic element is poking completely outside of the hush lav. Works most of the time without fail. LMC Sound use to carry a chest strap specifically for the Cos-11 that works well for hairy chests. Shipped in 3 sizes, but I'm not seeing it on their website just now.

    Unusual Cos 11 usage. - Drums, other instruments, or...

    I recently used a Cos-11 as a stage mic for a bluegrass jam and it worked great. I'd be a little hesitant about close mic'ing drums with them as you usually want a cardioid mic (plus the spl issue), but I have been curious about using them as a drum OH or room mic.
