  1. i just have a lemo out to bnc. i set both to free run. Slave is not reading the TC?
  2. i am trying to sync 2 788t's. not linked together. Ive read through the manual numerous times and came up empty. ive searched on the internet to no avail. starting to get frustrated with this. I have a lemo to bnc and a standard bnc cable. Set my master to Freerun and slave to rx ex. didnt work. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. ced
  3. hey all, Im kinda in a pinch, on a small budget. I will be running sound for a single person interview w/ multiple takes this sunday. I have a 788t. Limo out to bnc is the only cable i have to use. Obviously the 5d does not have a bnc in. I dont have it in the budget for a Denecke time slate or timecode buddy. Does anyone have any suggestions on a way to sync my 788t (master) to the 5d without potential for alot of drift.. the good ol hand clap? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. thanks ced
  4. hahahaha thanks for the help. StudioM, John and matt, GET A LIFE! Are you guys kidding me?!? As i stated before, im not a sound guy. Im just asking a couple basic questions. How fucking hard is it for you guys to not act like audio snobs. Did that make you feel better about yourselves? Horayyyy you understand audio. So if an amateur doesnt, lets bash on him. i thought these sites were for people to ask questions (even if they seem like the dumbest) Thanks to the guys that actually answered. And thanks to the "Audio Gods" for the mature responses.
  5. hi, First off, Im not a sound guy by any means. understand the basics. Long story short, I borrowed a 788t from a friend and he's out of the country.( Don't want to bug him on the family getaway) i have a couple basic questions that i need some advice on. - what should i set the sample rate and bit depth to? -file type- poly or mono? -ill be shooting at 30 frames. what should the TC frame rate be set to on 788? ive heard to set it to 29.97. not sure if thats true. -using wireless mics. when the receiver is plugged in, should the track be set to mic or line? 48k with mic? - i have 4 lectrosonic 411a's all set to -20, with the transmitter gain around 11 o'clock. is this correct? i know im working with a beast here so any help would be greatly appreciated. thanks so much. -palm
  6. thanks for all of the responses. the transmitters are about 5 feet away from each other and im no more then 15 feet away from all. and its usually just 1 transmitter that will give me issues out of the 4. No camera tx's either. I'm gonna read more into the tutorial and try a couple things that were suggested. a friend suggested grouping since i have 3 of the same block? again, dont really understand what this means or if it will be helpful. sorry, i obviously have to study up on alot of stuff.
  7. Hi all, Pretty new to field sound. Ive recently been having issues with scanning for clear freq's. i have 4 lectrosonic 411a's. maybe im doing it wrong? my way: Turn on all receivers and transmitters. let sit for a couple seconds. then, turn off all transmitters. Scan with all 4 receivers ( blocks 19,20,(2)21's ) at the same time. find the clearest location on each rx and tweak on all matching tx's. everything is fine until i place them on the talent. It seems like i cant be any more than 10 feet away from all 4 without losing full signal. any suggestions would be great. thanks
