SD 302 vs 552 for beginner
Victor Nguyen posted a topic in EquipmentHello. I think it's time that I get my own mixer to start practicing. I'm thinking of one of these 2. While I could cheap out on 302, I'm afraid that I might outgrow it. "buy once, cry once" is what they say on filmmaking forums. What's your opinion, should I get 302, learn it, and then jump to a more higher end mixer when I'm ready or should I just get the 552? (BTW, the only sound gear I have ATM is just a boompole, I'll get headphones shortly)
A few quick questions - 302 gain and 302 to EX1 with Senn G3I've been wondering about a few things. First, I've found that when using my 302 with a Rode NTG-3, a Sanken CS3e and Oktava and Schoeps hypercardioids it seems that in most cases (quiet to medium volume interview speech, for instance) I have to set the gain pot on the 302 around three-o'clock to get levels like 0-+12 on the mixer. More or less depending on the mic in question. Is this what one might expect? I assume it probably is, since I would think the possibility of having a defective mixer are fairly low. Second, I wonder if someone knew about the best gain staging when going from 302 to a Sony PMW-EX1 via two Sennheiser G3's. I've found that when setting the G3 Tx's to -42 dB sensitivity and having the EX1 inputs as line levels, you have to crank the EX1 gain pots all the way up AND set the G3 Rx's to max output to get the levels even somewhat matching. I'm wondering if it might be better or worse to try setting the EX1 inputs on mic level and first turn down the camera inputs, then Rx output (if needed) to get to matching levels. The production we're working on is a busy, low budget reality show in noisy places and the DP and I live in different cities so no time to play around and try out for best results so I was wondering if someone had any experience on this particular camera and its audio quirks. Thanks!
Calibrating Sony EX1 with SD 302Hey all, First post here. Been lurking for awhile and it's a great forum to be sure! I have a quick question. Tomorrow I have a fairly simple gig (yeah I really shouldn't think like that), one actor in front of a green screen. Boom + lav through my 302 to an EX1. I was just wondering if anyone was familiar with the EX1 audio features, does it have a numbered audio meter on the screen so I could calibrate it easily? Or does it simply have those blocks of which you have to know which level is each block? If so, might someone have any info on how it goes? edit: I did look at the PDF manual for the EX1 but either wasn't looking hard enough or didn't find what I was looking for. Cheers! -Karri
