    I am the FOH engineer for the Army Field Band and spend most of my time touring with concert sound. I enjoy the occasional one off's I get to do with audio for video.

  1. That looks pretty sweet. Street price?
  2. I've been using Minutiae's software 'PAID" accounting software for years now and love it, but it is no longer being supported as of this year. I upgraded to High Sierra without checking it and now it crashes constantly when I try to print invoices. I sent an email to the designer, but he said that he is no longer testing it and the version that came out last August (which was tested with Sierra) is the last one. Is there anything else out there production-oriented you are using? I am not really wanting to go down the Quickbooks rabbit hole if I don't have to.

    Net Neutrality

    Well, we thought that selling off the 600MHz band was a bad move. Now, they have sold off the internet as well. Hopefully the quality of service can get every bit as good as my Cable service, which sucks to seriously high levels. If they could find a way to charge me for every menu button I hit, I am sure they would. I almost never post about politics. But man am I sick of all of this. Hey Switzerland......need any sound guys?

    664 panic

    Does it play when the card is in the mixer? In other words can you press play on the 664 and hear audio?

    Production Mix Structure

    I absolutely love how everyone is willing to jump in and offer advice to people on this board. Willingly. It's amazing. I remember the days when I would ask someone how to time align a PA system, or how to sync tracks, and NO ONE would say anything. Their little secret. Maybe I am a bottle of wine in and being sappy, but I seriously appreciate this community on this site. I wish the OP a successful shoot. Mack PS. I meant beer. Don't judge.

    DPA 4017B Vs CMIT 5U

    I have both and reach for the 4017 the most, particularly if I am booming all day. It is light, versatile, and sounds fantastic. Key word light. I also use it quite a bit indoors and find it cuts well with the MK41. I also prefer having the filter.
  8. Are these still available?

    Mathews Maxi Stand Question

    I decided after reading a ton of threads that I was going to buy a Mathews Maxi stand as I was tired of hauling C-stands around. It will work great for a boom and is plenty sturdy that I don't feel any need to worry. https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/99162-REG/Matthews_387485_Maxi_Kit_Steel_Stand.html . I also bought the Mathews Hollywood Grip Head https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/139495-REG/Matthews_350580_Hollywood_Grip_Head.html. However, this seems to be too big. The bolt to hold it onto the stand doesn't engage in the indentation of the stand tip, but at the very top of it. While it will work, I just wonder if there a smaller size grip head that fits this thing better?
  11. Enjoyed reading this.....thanks for posting it.
