  1. 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.
  2. Client says their software is Inqscribe. I'm not familiar with it. Thoughts?
  3. 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?
  4. Thanks for info. I have requested that info from the client.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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
  14. So, I just got a call for this shoot on Monday. Sounds fun. Basics is hidden cameras shooting unknowing guests at a table. Waiter is our actor. I've got plenty of ideas going in my head, but wanted ideas on hiding mics in this scenario. Obviously Waiter will be wired. But any other mics would have to be hidden from pretty much every angle. I don't know the position of the table yet, etc. Some of the tools in my bag: Various lavs, wireless and hardwired, including B6, Tram, ECM-77, 55's, etc.AT-831b lav.

  15. you said "repaired or bought new" the OP asked which was cheaper... your comment makes it look like the price doesn't matter because it's a write off. The price still matters, because more expensive option will cost more to the bottom line, even after taxes are completed and factored in.
