    Zynaptiq plug ins

    Hello, I like Unveil and Unfilter. As Philip, I think the user interface is not very straightforward. I didnt know about Acon's offering, will check it out. Unveil: I tweak mostly Focus, Refract and Adaptation. Focus and Refract will control how much overall reverb you remove. Adaptation needs to match the lenght of the reverb you are trying to remove. That's where the GUI sucks as there is no clue on how long or short we can go (Im guessing the starting point is around 0.6s decay time). Tendency to sound a bit thin. Unfilter: Easy and fast to use plug-in when you have unnatural sounding clips. Tendency to sound edgy and slightly harsh. On dialog it will try to bring the bass back, you have to filter the low end. I like them both. They are pricey! My 0.02$ Franky

    Audio waveform search and match in ProTools?

    I agree! It should definitely be a Protools feature, so vote for it here: https://protools.ideascale.com/a/dtd/Auto-sync-clips-using-audio-not-meta-data/79429-3779#idea-tab-comments I think "phrasefind" should also be part of Protools, vote for it here: https://protools.ideascale.com/a/dtd/Add-PhraseFind-option-for-Pro-Tools!/30225-3779#idea-tab-comments My 0.02$ Franky

    Alt monitor (c|24) to HDMI?

    Hello Lin, I know your pain! It is quite difficult these days to have a "shitbox" listen. Depending on the length of the content I mix I sometime compress a quicktime to play on my phone. Sometimes I put my main monitors thru SpeakerPhone. It can emulate all kind of tv sets and radio sets. I think auratones are way too expensive! My 0.02$ Franky

    Bluetooth sender cheap on amazon

    Hello, This model says it last 10hrs: https://www.amazon.ca/TaoTronics-Bluetooth-Transmitter-Receiver-Simultaneously/dp/B013ULOP10 Is that the other version you ordered chrisyking? They also mention that the low latency only works when paired with only one device. That and the 10m/30ft limitation (plus you have to buy the latest bluetooth headphone) makes it less and less ideal... How about these puppies?: http://www.ebay.ca/itm/231723613577?_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT They seem to be a nice replacement for comteks (but the placement of the volume button sucks!). Cheers, Franky

    Why is Lectrosonics block 23 unpopular?

    Thank you all for your wise advice... very much appreciated! Franky03
  10. Any specific reason? I might have a good deal on a srb + smqv + hm... but it's in block 23 and I noticed that it appears that there are not many who use this block. Thank you for your time. Franky03

    Spectrum Analyzer iOS app

    I use FrequenSee, nice little tool just to quickly know the frequency of the truck that is backing up(!) https://itunes.apple.com/ca/app/frequensee-spectrum-analyzer/id583945921?mt=8 Very responsive! Franky

    Sennheiser AVX (with sound clips)

    Thank you for the samples! Cable still sounds the best, AVX is a little thinner and esssier but overall pretty good. I couldn't hear any AGC Would love to hear how the AT system 10 compares to the Senneheiser, anyone has samples? Couldnt find the specs on how much delay they produce either... Franky

    Portable speakers with bracket suggestions please!

    Thanks to all who have added their 0.02$ You are right David, its usually playbacks that involve many departments and the actors too. I might also add that the director used to also be a drummer, he surely has some hearing damage(!) Have a nice weekend jw Franky

    Portable speakers with bracket suggestions please!

    Thanks for all the feedback guys... very much appreciated We usually have video assist, Im not handling video playback. The problem is that the director doesn't like to wear headphones and doesn't like the sound of the small speakers found on the video monitors, usually something like this one: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/891005-REG/Panasonic_bt_lh2170pj_21_5_LCD_Studio_Monitor.html Its on a stand and I cant really attach anything to it. Im just trying to improve the quality of the sound for playback. I found multiple portable speakers, but its more the rigging thats giving me a headache. Thank you Nick for the suggestion of the UE Boom or similar speaker that has a carabiner. Will investigate that solution! Franky
