  1. Is there a portable transmitter, that would work in a location sound bag, for Sennheiser IEM? Doesn't have to be stereo, though that wouldn't be bad. I'm guessing the Senn IEM's do not work with G3 transmitters, but have not had the gear to try. Thanks
  2. is the voltage from the transmitter a concern when feeding mic level signal via the XLR? (I'm guessing there is no voltage on the line/ring, but have not tested yet). If it is a concern, how would one wire a capacitor/diode or whatever is needed to block the voltage? Thank you.
  3. Agreed. Since my last post, I sent a test file to client. Her response was "It's perfect! Exactly what I need for time code! Thank you so much!" So I'm taking that to mean that InqScribe can read the MP3 ID3 tag. thanks everyone.
  4. Client says their software is Inqscribe. I'm not familiar with it. Thoughts?
  5. I'll look on his website. What is the name of the software? I haven't had a chance to play with recorder yet, since this came up... I noticed in the manual it says the MP3 doesn't create a sound report. But I'm thinking, if the 2nd card is recording BWF files, would the sound report have all the info. I realize the tracks names, etc wouldn't apply to the mp3, but the files names and TC info would. Correct?
  6. Thanks for info. I have requested that info from the client.
  7. I have a 633. When recording MP3 files, are the files "embedded with Timecode?"Client requested the following:We must have embedded time code MP3 audio files for our transcriptions. We do not want audible Timecode. I want a Timecode embedded MP3. I've always recorded poly-wave up until this point. Is the MP3 embedded with the Timecode? thanks.
  8. of course, but thanks for mentioning. I've done quick one line pick-ups before. I find a walk-in closet, if available, usually works nice.
  9. I've been called to record voice-overs tomorrow for a commercial. It's in a house. No video, which is different from my usual. I can get the job done, but then I started wondering pro/cons of all the following and decided to throw the question on here: Here's what I have as my options. Thoughts? My various usual lavs MKH60 boom Audix SCX-1HC SM57 Senn 835
  10. The prank was revealed before people got their food. And then moved to another table and given a real waiter. I had thought about ketchup bottle in advance, (plus I think someone else mentioned as well), but was concerned with them using it. Once I realized no food was being brought, it was time to go to work. Wish I had done it from the beginning of the day, but we adjust, adapt and move on.
  11. Only the one side, it was usually 2 people, at 90 degrees. But they did not know they were being filmed. So had to hide transmitter as well, from all angles (plus it had about 5 cameras on it, from all angles). I talked to a waitress, and said I need a washed out bottle, then I went to work. I didn't have much time, or would have made cut cleaner. Just had my Gerber multi-tool and a few minutes to do this between customers.
  12. Well, I was presented with this when I got there. Not the easiest. But client was very understanding and mainly wanted the waiters sound. Which was out actor. The people at the table were the ones that did not know they were being filmed. I mounted two shotguns about 8-12 feet away. not great sound, but ok. Waiters mic was better. But I soon realized/ learned we were only doing the prank through getting drinks and ordering, by that time it was over. They'd move them to a real table and we'd wait for next subjects to arrive. So I came up with this.
  13. I've also thought about having a table we have control over nearby. And putting a shotgun on the table, maybe hidden by a bread basket, or napkin, etc.
  14. On the PCC mic, not sure how I'd place it discretely. That's me when I sit down. Move all the stuff on the restaurant table to the way I want it.
  15. I had thought about flower arrangement, but had the other thoughts of them moving it while sitting at the table. I like your table cloth idea. I, nor production, has seen the restaurant yet. They are scouting tomorrow. As for as table next to them: thanks for thoughts on the mic under the table. Am still thinking of ways to utilize a 2nd table to plant mic though, mayb eon top of table some how. Obviously would be a decision made on site. Keep em coming. thanks
