    Setting Levels with Lavs>Mixer>Recorder?

    I have been using a very similar setup for a number of years except the recorder (I use a Roland R26 and Sony lav's). Generally I set the sensitivity on the Lavs to the best level that does not distort. This is something that you have to test with mic positioning (plus mic type) and listening through the Azden. Once you have the lav on the talent then adjust the level on the Azden to one that has plenty of gain by listening and looking at the UV meters. It is also important to ensure that your gain has enough room in it if there is a sudden increase. Once this is set, then on your recorder you will need to set the sensitivity and then the gain depending on the volume. Whilst recording monitor your levels and adjust as need be. All of this takes practice and learning from mistakes...

    Proper Lav Mic Techniques

    Looks like a great technique provided the talent is will to wear all dark colours and the shoot is a noir shadowy type film. Will keep this in mind for my next corporate shoot. Thanks.

    Zoom F8n.

    So what has happened. It is almost a week since the last post on this thread. Has no one received there F8n yet? Or is that those who have one now are so busy they have no time to spend on jwsound.

    Advice for a novice

    I use the 416 as my only boom mic due to not having any others (beside a NTG1). Never really have much of a problem with it. Inside or outside. The only issue I have had is the rear rejection. If I place it too close to the roof inside a room with Air-con in the ceiling it gets picked up almost as clearly as the talent. Just one of the quirks of the mic I guess.

    Sound Devices Mix Pre-3 and Mix Pre-6

    On the -pre6 is there any pre-roll (pre-record) facility?
  7. I guess no one knows anything more than what is mentioned on the website. Looks like a great concept. Be interesting to see how well it goes. Hope it is not too noisy. I guess, perhaps if it is they may have a anti-noise module.

    Wireless blocks in Chicago

    Reigniting an old thread. I am going to be in Chicago mid september recording with a couple of wireless lavs. I will be at the Chicago Marriott Downtown Magnificent Mile. What are the available frequencies? Have they changed from what has been mentioned above. Thanks in advance.
  12. Hi All, Any body got an idea on what frequencies are available in Papua New Guinea particularly round Port Moresby and the Southern Highlands. Are they affected by the Australian Digital Dividend? Any advice will be gladly appreciated.
