  1. No, it hasn't been replaced with anything else. Let's just say my business interests have changed dramatically over the past few years.
  2. I owned a QL1 for many years, only recently departing with it. I've only found three negatives with it in regards to a sound cart: 1. Weight 2. Power 3. Lack of a trim knob per channel Other than that, I think it's STILL my favorite board available, some 7 years after its release. There is just so much that it offers that other boards of its size doesn't, and the audio I turn in at the end of the day is better because of it. Some of my favorite features: 1. Built in Dugan Auto Mixer with weighting options 2. RTA's so my HPF and LPF can be much
  3. Yesterday, along with Chris Howland and the LA Sound Mixers, I hosted a seminar called The Unscripted Sound. In it, we discussed what goes into recording audio for reality tv shows, and the differences between scripted and unscripted mixing. You can watch the recording of it here (even without a facebook account): https://www.facebook.com/LASoundMixers/videos/886368908570884/ And of course, you all know I love talking all things audio. If anyone has any questions, or want to talk one on one, please reach out and we can discuss it further! Thanks!
  4. I have routinely combined 4 Comtek BST-25 base stations into a single Phase-Right or Mini Mite antenna with fine results. As long as the impedance of the cables and splitter match correctly, you likely won't be able to notice and real world differences.
  5. My friend, a wonderful world of AoIP awaits you! Dante protocols are pretty ubiquitous in the gear you’re looking for, but there’s also AES67, Ravenna, Rocknet, Cobranet, and others. Check out audinate’s own website to see the thousands of Dante enabled products. There are many options, made by many different brands, that can do precisely what you’re looking for.
  6. Just to help spread the word... NAB Show 2021 is scheduled for October 10th - 13th this year. There's no telling if it will stick to this schedule or move back to April afterward.
  7. I use the Rii Bluetooth Mini keyboard with its included USB dongle. It works not only with the 970/270 rackmount recorders, but also the 6 series (and I assume 8 series) SD mixer/recorders. It's great for entering metadata, and it can also utilize the keyboard shortcuts. It's definitely great. But the truth is, if your 970 is connected to a computer via Dante, another external keyboard isn't necessary. You can use Dante Controller to edit track names, and other metadata via PIXNET. It's a very versatile machine, so you have plenty of options.
  8. I'm referring to people who aren't necessarily monitoring IFB audio. Camera operators (typically in unscripted environments) usually monitor the audio being delivered from stereo hops. The adapter will allow them to hear both channels of the camera's output without the need for the camera itself to be set to mix these signals to mono. This depends on the camera, of course, but it's a good failsafe for any cameras that don't have the ability to switch or mix channels in a menu. The same goes for dailies editors, loggers, assistant editors, or anyone else that needs to quickly confir
  9. The PR-216 is a much more fascinating device when you dive into the wiring of it. I ran into the same troubles that Bubblebee is experiencing when we came out with the very first Field Monitor. The Field Monitor originally had a TRRS connector on it. The thought was that this would ensure it would be compatible not just with all IFBs, but with phones and laptops and anything else. The PR-216 proved to be the exception, and would not pass audio. That’s when I reach out to our friends at Comtek to work with them on their signal path. It’s not just that the two poles are o
  10. Here's what I've learned masks need to be comfortable enough to wear all day. 1. It must not sit on your lips. Have space between the fabric and your nostrils and lips. This feels more natural and won't muffle your speech. 2. It must has an internal or external nose guard. Many disposable masks have a wire inside to pinch around the nose. This helps glasses and shields from fogging up, and keeps the mask in place. For masks that don't have one, there are plenty of sellers online who have metal nose guards available. 3. It must not live on your ears. There are options that
  11. Eric was one of a kind, and helped mold all of us in his image. Though I didn’t get to know him until later in life, he had a great impact on me. I, and the community, will miss him.
  12. This week, we begin a series of free online seminars focusing on financial success for freelance sound pros. We start with two dates for New York area pros, followed by Texas/Georgia and Los Angeles over the coming weeks. Visit haltertechnical.com for registration links! RSVP now as spots are first come, first served! Note: This is for US residents only. If you live in a state or region not represented here, you can still attend. The Texas/Georgia will likely have more open spots and more general information, but please feel free to pick from the dates and regions that fit you best
  13. This post is about me, and the Strictly Sound Gear group on Facebook. Early this year, Rado put up a series of posts in the SSG group about the politics of voting for the CAS awards. They were disparaging, crude, and broke several of the group’s rules. As the admin of the group, I replied and asked to please keep the conversation focused on the gear (as that is the entire purpose of the group, to discuss the merits of the gear itself). None of those posts were deleted, and they’re still visible in the group. Rado took that reply as an opportunity to attack me personally
