    What's your day rate?

    Happy New Year JWSoundGroup Guru's! So Its the beginning of the New Year 2018 and were all here working to accomplish the same thing! Capture Great Audio for a Grate Rate! I'm a New York City Resident and the competition is great and will always be great! but depending if your a freelancer, LLC, C-Corp etc. Rules and Regulations are subject to change with the IRS, Production, You name it. Production is always looking to under cut the sound mixer and to be honest we can't have that I believe the Sound Community needs to stand strong as one especially the professionals who live for this kind of work, You guys need to help navigate the waters. You guys are the reason why, I'm able to do what I do on set so Thank You! Anywho This Topic is about RATES! and I'm looking for the NEW STANDARD BALL PARK PRODUCTION SOUND MIXER RATE (Those of you's who were able to increase your rates last year, CONGRATULATIONS !!!)

    DIY- Right Angle XLRs

    Thanks for the advice D. I'll see if I can get my hands on some Teators paint soon. Yhe expoy should be good, I just bought gallon of resin and hardener about three weeks ago but it was for my kitchen counter and island, which worked amazingly. I'll give it another go with some testor paint and more hardener!

    DIY- Right Angle XLRs

    So I've decided to give it anther go to build a low profile XLR cable for my bag but before I went any further, I wanted to try out the epoxy process on a connector, which I attempt three times already. I did a 1:1 ratio and added a drop of acrylic blue paint but so far nothing good. it's been sticky/tacky for 3 days now and I'm in a warm environment which is recommended for the healing process. Any recommendations on what I'm doing wrong?

    Tram TR-50 BPS Repair

    So earlier on set today my Tram TR-50 BPS got yanked and broke at the base of the power supply. I was wounding if anyone knows how to disassemble the power supply so I can get access to the XLR circuit board without damaging anything?

    Music video workflow...

    Hey guys! I found something that might be helpful regarding Timecode stamping for this topic. its a website called: http://pehrhovey.net/blog/2013/07/el-tee-see-make-smpte-timecode-wav-file/ they offer a free service where you can download a Generated TimeCode.Wav file, so you can drop into your pro tools session for playback.. You can set: FPS, Frames, Bit, Start time, and Duration to be generated.
