  1. Hi all i met Franck by casualty, in NY when he was recording Dellaventura in 1997. The set was under my hotel ( pioneer hotel at this moment) I introduced myself, he invites me to stay with him, close to the nagra and drop me a Comtek. He was very kind, I was starting my sound mixer career at this moment. Now 25 years after i would like to get in contact with him to say thanks, and share my 25 years experience, after we met. Thanks for the information, PM if you like!!!
  2. Very interesting read, i started as many of us with a Nagra, just for my first project, but i continue then in DAT 2 tracks. This thread gives me wanted to watch sopranos again, and push me back, when rehearsals were the way to go. Thanks Mathew, and Jeff
  3. Hi!, how are you!, i'm in the same process, wanting to build a new cable for the PHA48 , but for lectro use, just to make a test. Anyone has the original diagram? this info is in the PHA48( manual, but nothing about the lemo 3 side..... ( Mini XLR-5M (cable to wireless MIC) [1] [5] GND, [2] AF+, [3]AF-, [4]VDC(5V) )
  4. hi, try the wisycom facebook group
  5. Hi, congratulations for the research, and time invested. Very good results!!!
  6. Hello, i've bought a Wlav pro to test with my Lectros. With the Microdot to ta5f supplied with the mic, In the 200 series, no problem at all. In the 400 ( SM, 400'stx), i'm having big hiss. Any experiences on that?, do i need to wire the connector mic at the end for the Digital Hybrid series? Any experiences on that?, thanks! Sound is good, a bit sibilant....
  7. Hi, Michael Paul at LSC can retune with ambient master clock. He has done it for 2 of my clocks
  8. Nice story, and practice. i remember dpa advice to use coconut oil to keep the lav cables softs. i think May be it can help to do that and sun bath
  9. Hi Ben, I’ll try that with one mke2 red dot that I have for car exhausts. thanks for your idea
  10. Hi all. In my lav case, I've some mke2's with bent cables. Cables are clean, capsules too, but the cable is not straight, and is impossible to use them with light garment....at least for me, I prefer to go with another ones. But for some situations, I would like to have a straight mke2.. Someone knows if they are a magic thing to do, to help them to find a straight line? I've tested with coconut oil, and despite to clean, and soften a little bit the surface...... Any tip? Please avoid the " buy a new one" answers. Thanks!
  11. We have 2x 98KW/H, and the cantar X3 charger, doesn't allows to plug both at the same time, it can charges just one with the other out of the charger.... What a F&%$()" charger

    RIP Eric Toline

    Eric was an invaluable colleague, I learned a lot with him, I don’t remember if my firsts exchange were in CAS forum, or later in Ramps, great humor, what a peety.
  15. Hi, Thanks for your replies Vincent and Jeff, no, i was not thinking about cinela. I was thinking at one comment you made some time ago Jeff: here: Posted March 21, 2013 "I feel, mainly from listening over the last month with each, that the LEO has a more natural sound and matches the microphone with only a foam screen." I'm glad you finally said that --- I would have been very surprised if you felt that the Rycote Ball Gag sounded the same as the Cinela. The beauty of the Cinela windscreens, for me, has been the minimal affect on how the microphone sounds in the windscreens. I have not found any other windscreen (other than the ones that Don Coufal has built over the years) where the microphone sounds the same in and out of the windscreen. So the phrase: "(other than the ones that Don Coufal has built over the years)" let me very curious about these, and i would like to see some pictures if someone has a unit...
  16. Hello all. I was reading here, about Don Coufal, mostly Jeff Wexler comments. I'm very curious about his windsceens, how they looked, as Jeff said they was very transparent. If someone knows any Don Coufal anecdotes, i'll be glad to hear them. If any has pictures of his windscreens, or comments, welcome! Thanks Fabian
  17. that's a nice service
  18. Hello, all. Has someone tried with success, the Sennheiser and lectro compatibility? Does it sounds good? With what lectros tx's? and senns? Thanks for your comments! Fabian
  19. Hi, thanks Turi. i think it can be cool to be able to upload to a day folder, into different sub folders ( one for each recorder) so if you use more than one recorder at same time, or if you are working in two or more units, all the job keeps organised.
  20. Hello all. i was thinking about to do a diy cable replacement in one of my Cos 11. someone has try to do that? I’ve seen some pictures of dismantled cos 11, but my main concern is if the lower part of the capsule ( under the rubber protection) has the solder points exposed. any tip in the soldering process? i know Wilcox repair them, but I want to try. any advice on the cable type? Any experience with Mogami W2901. All comments about lavalier cable replacement is welcome. Thanks! Fabian
