  1. I understand it. I guess my question really is why most people are using horizontal spacing instead? Almost every sound cart I see has antennas side by side. I know I did for a few years.
  2. Thanks Larry...It's good to see you here. Could you or someone else clear up something for me? I talked to Bruce a few years ago when I was using a horizontal antenna mast with block 21 T1 transmitters and block 22 recievers. He suggested a vertical spead would better isolate any possible interference between the trasmit and recieve. I have switched to this concept and really like how much better I get through doorways quickly. Seems to work just fine. If I need one antenna closer to set I will remote one, but most of the time it work fine one on top of the other with about a 18" between. Brad
  3. I have several pairs including the Lectrosonics ALP700, which were great but you have to replace the pieces you break off. I now use the cut out Lectros. I love that the wind doesn't catch them. The wind used to be a real problem with a horizontal spread mast. I also have a pair of the Audio Technicas. I was working on an exterior set that was a 6 acre scrap yard. We positioned them on top of a portable building and they stayed for weeks out in the elements. My thought was if they rusted I would just toss them. Still have them and no rust. We had rain 20 out of 28 days so taking the carts out of the truck was just not smart. We used those Audio Technicas for the entire time we were at that location.
  4. Yeah, I've got Roll Sound as company name and emails. Love It.
  5. Drummer here. All the school bands, Madison Scouts Snare Line, toured with Asleep At The Wheel, Ray Wylie Hubbard, Tommy Alverson, lots of Texas boys, China Blue (metal), Played jazz with James Clay, Redd Garland, Clint Strong, Bla bla bla.
  6. Wish I had seen this earlier. Shawn Williams is a great boom op in that area. If you end up working with him tell him I said hello. Brad Harper
  7. You can lock out the Lectro R1 and R1a by loosening the two allen screws on the volume knob, remove the knob and the very small washer inside the knob. replace knob which will now sit lower and not allow user to press down and change frequency. I have done this on eight of mine leaving two intact for booms. Be sure to keep the washers. Brad Harper
  8. I think the first lines of sync dialog were in the Charlie Chaplin film Modern Times.
  9. I have a 12' antenna mast mounted on the main cart with a Remote Audio antenna bar. This holds four Lectro folding dipoles (two for wires, two for T1 transmitters). i also keep a Lectro log periodic on a Bogan Magic Arm with a 30' cable to quickly throw up when needed. I find myself needing it more and more these days.
  10. As far as natural perspective, Citizen Kane is the first to come to mind. I really love The Searchers, but as I recall I seem to remember some forced perspective. I will have to watch it again soon. Jeff had some really nice perspective in Fight Club. Check it out again if you haven't seen it in a while. Of course, The Conversation and Cape Fear. On the newer side I liked In America and About Schmitt.
  11. Although probably all body mics, Richard Linklater's Before Sunset is an incredible walk and talk in the streets of Paris. Almost half the movie is a walking shot. Good lord I would have hated to be on that one...
  12. You can get a HD component or HDSDI to DVI or VGA converter but they are $800.00-1200.00
  13. I am curious if they will get it right on the upcoming Nagra VI. I have said many times that I would go for the Nagra if it had a few more tracks and different metering.
  14. Last year I was doing a series of commercials for Cox Communications. All of the actors were recorded on a Schoeps CMC6 with MK41 capsule, but when we got to a particular female I started to hear some midrange distortion. I switched to another Schoeps, but I still heard it. I tried to EQ it out, but that wasn't working. Finally, I tried a Sennheiser MKH50 and the distortion was gone. Each time that actor came through I had to put out the Sennheiser. However, this was the only time I prefered the MKH50 to a Schoeps.
  15. Is there some way to block them from the other catagories? I certainly wouldn't mind having a category to share information with manufacturers, but in the other forums the same issues could arise.
