  1. I ended up cutting off a bit more than half of the curly cord. It really helped clean up my bag not having 5 feet of headphone cable dangling from me. I think the 3.5mm female jack on the ear cup is cool, but I wouldn't use it. I don't see any advantage, other than being able to use any aux cable as your headphone input.
  2. I was looking into creating a company logo for my upcoming website but can't seem to find the right tools. As my logo I plan to use an image of a random nagra audio recorder spelling out the initials of my name and the service I provide. I've looked into several google searches and all I found things pertaining to photography and video but nothing having to do with our profession. Any information you can provide me with will be very helpful, thanks in advance!
  3. I've had this zuca case for a couple months now and it has worked well when traveling around NYC for small eng and boom op gigs, but I wanted a secure place to put my pole on set as well as give it bigger wheels to better navigate crappy sidewalks. So I finally put some pieces I've been collecting together. Switched out the 4" skate wheels for 8" scooter wheels, sawed off the original front feet and added casters. Attached 2 boom holders on the back using broom holders from the container store (elfa system) and 2" pvc caps protected in the radius of the back wheels.
  4. I recently stumbled on this DIY electret kit : http://micbooster.com/primo-microphone-capsules/8-primo-em-172-z1.html Out of curiosity I might buy a pair. Maybe the could be usable as plant mics or something alike. Has anyone build one of these already?
  5. Here are a few pics of a little addition I recently made to my mix bag (Petrol PEGZ-1F) workflow that I wanted to share with all of you. Found this Logitech Keys-To-Go Bluetooth keyboard (http://support.logitech.com/en_ca/product/keys-to-go-ipad) at Best Buy, which has been handy for punching notes into the Sound Report Writer app on my iPhone between takes. The interfacing with iOS isn't perfect for navigating through the app's text fields (I'm hoping to find a way to map out custom key commands to tab around more easily between fields, OR fingers crossed.. this will improve with an app up
  6. Hi folks! I'm a bit of a hardcore lurker here, and while I read much, I post little. I'd first like to commend everyone for maintaining such a fantastic community and resource for soundies everywhere! I've learnt (and continue to learn) so much from here. One thing that someone said (can't remember who) but it really stuck with me, was that in this day and age a good production mixer needs to be as knowledgable as possible about RF, and so I've been researching as much as possible and trying to come up with ways to improve my professional practice. One day soon I'll own a full Zaxcom
  7. So, has 3d printing come to the point yet where we can design and create entire shock mounted and wind protection rigs with various multi mic configurations? I saw a thread a while back that had a person custom 3D printing various mic clips, and it seems like the next step would be to modify the designs that Rycote and Cinela put out to adapt to some more esoteric or compact designs that incorporate both wind protection AND shockmounting. I'm thinking of things like ORTF mounts for longer mics that have shock mounting built in and enough room for cables to attach internallyquad rigsrigs with
  8. Hi Everyone, I am a Sound Editor at a post sound studio in Hollywood, and we are in the process of building a new space. I was put in charge of designing our foley pits, and I don't really have any experience with the design and construction of them. This is a legitimate foley stage, so please don't give me ideas for portable pits. We are going to have one small pit in our ADR room, and then a larger pit for our theater. I have a few questions about the construction of these foley pits for anyone who might know. 1) How deep do the pits need to be? 2) For surfaces like tile, wood, and carpet,
  9. This is a photo diary of the birth of my new sound cart. It is based on wooden 8U 19" cases (bought from Thomann) and will have the option of adding more modules. It breaks into single modules for transport in a car. The base will, apart from having wheels, hold things like comtek RX, small playback speakers, spare headphones, and similar stuff you typically need handy only during set-up. It will also contain small mic stands, LPDAs, and a spare Rycote basket. The main module will hold two drawers with TX, lavs, lav accessories, mics, suspensions, TX batteries and so on, and have 4 units of
  10. hello I introduce myself, I am Mirko, I'm an Italian production sound mix. I ask you a question, perhaps a heresy, has anyone ever thought of making a control surface for Zaxcom Fusion. My idea is to have 8 friends trim and 8 meters (only three LEDs are enough). A controller like a mix 8 without fader which is small enough to fit easily in the sound bag. Thanks. (forgive my english)
  11. So today I had a shoot with 3 Red Epics and I took my lemo 5 TC cable and BNC-lemo 5. But then there was the horror: TC on the Epic body without breakout, seems to be lemo 4 . Aside from Red pissing me off all day, I don't want this to happen again. So I'm trying to find out to make a cable like Devendra did in this thread: But I can't seem to find the schematics for some connectors. I found this: http://www.sounddevices.com/notes/recorders/xl-lb2-wiring/ and http://www.sounddevices.com/notes/recorders/time-code/xl-lx-wiring/ but I can't seem to find the schematics for lemo 4, XLR and dif
  12. Hi guys, I want to wire two very short TA3F > TA3F cables to go from the direct outs of my 422 to my 744T. The necessary length is like less than eight inches. It's because the Remote Audio cable I currently use is annoyingly long: perhaps two feet. So my question is what's the best cable stock to use? I don't feel like trashing the Remote Audio cable for this. Rachel
  13. I need to make a cable for a Sony WRT-822- Hirose to XLR Male. Can anyone give me the pin wiring for this? Also, if there are any special considerations to take note of when making this cable that would be much appreciated! Thanks!
  14. Needed a mic transmitter belt for an actress. Bought some heavy elastan/polyester fabric, large velcro and started the sewing machine. Custom fit!
  15. It really made me appreciate a good mechanical engineer. I was quite lucky, not a single drop of blood was spilt, nor a drill or milling bit snapped http://babynetslate....one-a-few-mods/
  16. Hi folks, I always thought the Audio Ltd. TX/RX (and Lectro as well) had SMA connectors for the antennae. No I ordered a pack of SMAs for a small antenna distribution DIY project, and these are way bigger than the ones on the RX. Otherwise they look the same, just "zoomed in". Anybody care to give me the exact type of connector? THX in advance Peter
  17. 30$ total expenses ( 2nd hand mic stand). BAM!
  18. Hi all, I am new here. The only thing I have soldered in the past are straight XLR and TRS cables. I need some assistance in making a new cable. I already have the tools, the connectors, and some spare starquad. I would like to make a cable that is as follows: 3.5mm TRS to (2) XLRf I do not want the cable to act as a splitter. I want each XLRf connector to have a different channel. My intention is to feed a device with ONE stereo input (3.5mmTRS) signals from two different audio sources with XLR outputs This cable will only be 2-3ft. long. My thoughts: The tip of the T
  19. I will be recieving my 788t today and a bag and a BDS, my CL8 and CLwifi next week along with 3 more channels lectro SR/SMV and I already have a great boom kit. I will build my bag rig first and then over the next year transition onto a cart. I will continue to post on my progress. In preparation to utility the third season of the walking dead I am building on Trew Audios Video Assist kit. The main difference in mine is durability and use. First off every show I have been on does not need audio from or to the sound cart from video village. We just need video. My system uses the muxlab 500
  20. Hi all, feeling like making my own brake-out cable and tails to camera. I have little experience with brake-outs and would like to know from more experienced what is a good, comfy distance to insert the multi-pin xlr going to camera. I've seen these measurement from a pro cable maker: Outputs are 35cm Long Return is 65cm Long any advice on the gauge? any extra tips are welcome. thanks
