Mounting Mac on sound cart
Jim Hawkins posted a topic in Macs... and the other computerI'm curious as to how some of you are mounting computers on your carts. I would like to have my MacBookPro on my cart, but only if I am confident it's securely mounted. What solutions have you found for this?
Recording Computer Audio
WJJZ1069 posted a topic in General DiscussionHey all, I was searching around before posting this, but I couldn't find it immediately (I hope I didn't miss a big thread on it). I notice that I'm recording audio from laptops more often than I thought I would be (all for broadcast work where a subject is sitting at a laptop listing to some random audio). The producers/camera man just ask me to lav the laptop speakers, but that creates various other problems including just bad quality. I would love to find if there's an aux > lemo5 or aux > TA-5 so I could just get direct audio out of the laptop and hook that up to a transmitter. Now, I know that would stop audio from coming out of the speakers, so I would also have to find a solution for that. I was thinking of also having this Aux out cable split so that I could hook up a small speaker and have the audio come out of that for the person at the laptop. Normally I would be fine with just securing a lav to a laptop to allow a bit of reality with shitty speakers, but I had some weird sounds because the speakers were hidden underneath the laptop on the last shoot. I just want to have a cable as an option in case that happens again. Also, what are your favorite ways of mic-ing up a computer if you want to include some of the ambient room noise?
Sound Reports and Reference ToneHey guys, Just wondering which among you do sound reports manually with pen and paper or do them electronically with a laptop, iOS device, etc. (or who doesn't do them at all? I.E. OMB? Reality Shows? etc.) Also wondering how often you put a reference tone file (-20dBFS) in the daily folder for post? Is this still needed usually? Thanks Guys!
Pro Tools Multitrack, Exporting Files?
Den Nic posted a topic in Recording Direct to ComputerHey Guys, I recently recorded a short film for a buddy of mine and used my Pro Tools 9 and Focusrite Saffire 56 interface to record 1-4 mic inputs. I am now finding that I can't export poly wav files from Pro Tools (trying to use the export file command always makes many mono files). I downloaded wave agent to see what I can do, but I have never used the program. Also, I didn't roll on all inputs all the time, so the filing naming isn't consistent for which take they are. (For example Boom_01.wav and Studio Mic_01.wav might be from the same take, but Lav 1_01.wav would be from 4 takes later as I didn't roll the lav mic on the first three takes, etc.) They do all have the right timecode start and stop, so I'm hoping that helps? (No timecode to camera, just Pro Tool's own timecode timeline). Does anyone know of a simple way for me to export these files into poly wav files for the edit suite? Thanks guys!
