  2. Hello, I get asked to mix some very indie projects in 5.1 and somtimes I don’t really see why. If there is nothing but a single boom track and music there really isn’t that much to mix. Is it worth the time to convert those projects to 5.1? I would assume you would at least want some foley/sound fx to really make a difference. Or is it that important to have more music in the back of the theater than the front? Thanks, Louis
  3. Hey everyone! I know this will probably be contentious so I will start by saying that in a perfect world post production shouldn't be using 'automix' BUT is there a similar plugin or system to how the Sound Devices Automix or Dugan Automix works for post production? Sometimes I get a bunch of ISOs and I need to get out a clean mix quickly. There's not the time for going through and automating all the ISOs. Recently, I've been running tracks through my 633 in realtime and recording back in the Automix. But since this is a digital process it has to exist in some plugin form. I know Waves has it
  4. Hi everyone just a quick question: I dont have enough money to fully set up a surround sound workstation so currently I am making do with my two genelecs and headphones, So I have been looking into Waves NX and also Flux Ircam HEar v3 as a way to send out rough 5.1 mixes, just using headphones, has anybody had experience with either one and if so is it good enough to mix thoroughly or is it only a good guide, I would like to know which is best and if there are any other plugins I should be aware of as well. Thanks.
  5. Hello everybody, So the time has come to upgrade my studio (I have the Yamaha HS series monitors set up in a 5.1 config) and my budget is about 1k a speaker. I've been listening to the Dynaudio BM6 MK III's and they seem pretty solid. They appear to have a pretty flat frequency response. These, paired with the BM14S II 12"Subwoofer, I'm thinking this would be a pretty good mixing environment. While, others are mixing on Genelecs, and still others, I see, are using the Focal 6B series monitors, et all, the BM6 MK IIIs appear to be decent performers (I really can't afford the Dynaudio AIR s
  6. Hi all,I wanted to share a new mixing plug-in we've created for the post production world! It's called RX Final Mix, includes an EQ with both Static and Dynamic functionality and a 7.1 surround True Peak Limiter and runs right within your NLE or DAW as an AAX, RTAS, AU or VST plug-in.RX Final Mix is designed to be utilized on your stem tracks, and your master bus if desired! The limiter is designed to be transparent: it analyzes the incoming source material and uses a psycho-acoustically pleasing algorithm that reacts quickly to transients and reacts more slowly to lower frequency and steady t
  7. Hello all, I've been learning a lot since finally finding this site - even bought a great shotgun mic earlier today from a member on the board and I even learned to use my real name!! Anyway - I hope to get slightly beaten around - but can someone tell me what you are mixing? And by that I mean - we have these great recorders that record iso tracks, we even have wireless that can record their own iso tracks - so with all the outboard mixers I'm seeing on your carts - and 788/664 add on units --- why? Is the goal for you to create the best two track mix for them to use in post and
  8. Howdy Gents, So I'm potentially going off in April to Brazil to shoot part of a documentary and I was thinking I'd like to grab a bunch of surround Ambiences of the Rain Forest, and multiple other locations that I'd later use in the final mix (I'm also the post editor/mixer for these films. The budget precludes the production from actually ponying up for the cost of a really nice surround config such as Schoeps OCT Surround setup so I'm trying to do one on a shoestring budget that I could absorb the cost on my own. What have you done to achieve decent quality recordings that you'
  9. Hi all... I've been re-visiting the Halloween series after the new 15-disc Blu Ray set came out recently, and now after watching some of these films for the first time in years (and probably the first since I became a professional filmmaker) I'm struck by the excellence of much of the original production sound. I see Thomas Causey (mixer) and Joseph Brennan (boom) worked on the first three films of the series and are retired now. Does anyone here know them? Related with them much around the time these films were produced, and can shed some light on their work habits? I was particularly
  10. Hey Guys! Need advice again! I got asked to do a 2-day reality gig that will be a pretty big setup. Here are the specs: Equipment: CAMERAS: Canon 5Ds Sony FS700s SOUND: SD 664 CL6 8x Lectro UCR411a 8x Lectro UM400 8x COS11 2x Senny G3s (backup wireless) Senny MKH60 4+ Røde Mics BDS & NP1s There are 2 main setups that I was concerned about: SETUP 1: 4 people in 4 different cars driving at undeterminable distances from eachother. 1-2 cameras in each car. Interviews being conducted in each car. QUESTION: Since I obviously cannot be in 4 place
  11. Do you guys have any favorite Altiverb tweaks you do in the dialog mix? I've been working on this feature and use it quite a big to help get the dialog cuts to blend better as well as giving it a better, more cinematic feel within the room. But I always wonder if there's something I could be doing to help make it even better so I thought I'd ask people smarter than me! Thanks for any advice you can share! John
  12. Hi all, I have landed a job mixing for a tv show and am a bit worried as they tell me there will be no or very little postproduction going into each episode (churning out 5 episodes a week so the editor will have a few days for turnaround) In my relatively limited experience there is always a fair bit of work that needs to be done on production audio, aside from eqing out hum etc. My question is to the seasoned mixers of jwsoundgroup is, in general on bigger Tv productions, how does sound post workflow go? My main concern is noise reduction, which i know is often treated with outb
  13. Was wondering if you guys do exercise or do you eat different when you going on a job. Set crafty isn't the most healthy of foods but was wondering if anyone does aerobic or cardio stuff too, espcially for booming because it's so psychically demanding. I wear a back brace when I'm one man banding as well. Personally I try to run when I can, and doing some ab exercises. I also don't drink soda, coffee, or energy drinks on set. (sometimes I break this for those over nights, ugh) What does everyone else do?
  14. Even when the wires sound well, when the actor looks down and they get much closer to the lav mic, I have yet to find a mixing technique that sounds transparent. I typically bring the level of the lav down but have been reluctant to bring up the level of 'air' from the boom to accomplish what my ears want to hear. I think this would do it, but...something stops me from pushing it far enough. Maybe just typing this will help get me there. Any thoughts?
  15. I'm trying to figure out how to record 4 separate audio channels to the Sony XDCam PDW 700. Has anyone done this before? Thanks - Jed
  16. Hey Guys, Just wondering, for those who are doing a stereo mix of booms/wireless and recording those two tracks, how often are those the tracks that post goes to? Do they use the stereo mix for the most part unless they need something specific? Or is the stereo mix just a guide for post production (And for IFBs) these days? Thanks!
  17. Hey guys, I switched from using a SD302 w/ a Zoom H4N to a Zaxcom Nomad. It's been quite a jump, and I love all the things it can do. On a philosophical level, I think I'm still a bit confused about multi-track recording. Hopefully you guys can help and offer some insight. When using the 302, when I turned the knob, it controlled how much or little volume the recorder would record. I would monitor from my source, since that's what I was ultimately recording. If I needed more bump, I could turn a gain knob and open it up. I assume that is post-fader recording/monitoring. By defaul
  18. Hey guys, Been having an awesome experience with my Nomad so far...but the time has come for me to do a 3-camera ENG shoot. I will be mixing into 3 Cameras (each with 2 XLR inputs) Follow my logic for setting this up and please tell me if you would do anything different or have any insight/experience/advice. I have 4 direct outputs. That's 2 breakaway cables, one to Camera A, and one to Camera B. I can monitor the return on 1/2, and 3/4 with the 5-pin adapter cables I have. For camera 3, I would get the cable that goes 5-pin to XLR "Y" cable. Then use a typical breakaway cable to g
