First an intro... I have been an on and off prod. sound mixer for 4 years in the Dominican Republic. (on and off because I moved to spain for a while and also started a small av contracting business which i am currently closing) Mostly did commercials and the occasional documentary or tv program(over 60 or 70 commercials). I am currently on my second feature. Little by little I have been able to purchase the following gear: SD 744t SD 442 Sennhesier MKH 416 Sennhesier MKH 50 2 Tram tr50 4 Sennhesier G2/G3 wireless Bags, Rycote windshield kits, 18 ft and 12ft boompoles, plus aditional bells and whistles. Looks like I'm going to be doing some features now. (pinewood building 6 lots here+ new film legislation has come into effect implementing tax incentives for film/tv production.) This is what i would like to know. Keep in mind there is no local rental house i can deal with. Obviously the G2s are my weakest link. Thinking my next purchase should be a Venue with atleast 3 SMQs this will run me about 7K no-one even owns lectrosonics here and i just know it would give me great piece of mind (also RF space isn't very well regulated and could probably get away with running them at 250mw output. Are there any down sides other than being forced onto a cart? Does a cart seem like overkill for a 442 744t setup? Anything I should think about buying before, like TC slate for example? I love the idea of getting a 788t eventually with cl9, but seams like overkill without enough mics to fill the 8 inputs. Any comments would be greatly appreciated, I know there have been a lot of threads on this forum about this, but most answers included renting lectrosonics or other proper wireless or other necessary equipment instead of buying.
