  1. Re: my design for resale cart. So unless I get feedback to the contrary I plan to make my vertical Location sound mixer carts be standard width between c to c of rack rail holes for standard 19” rack mount gear and be 21” clear between the frame in any area where user chooses to not have rack rail. Rack Rail can be added in 4RU increments (approx 7”). Hopefully the people wanting an “open area” will find the 21” clear sufficient to meet their needs. The only completely open area will be on the top. Feedback wanted... Mark Pope Stabilitech
  2. Hello. I am finishing my portable sound cart this month. Cart is for film location recording. I need slightly help about internal cabling. We are using Canare L-4E5C for boom operators externally. The cart have XLR panel and i need build really short XLR patches for it. What do you recommend? It's cable quality very important on short (1 meter max) lengths? Thank you in advance. Bert
  3. Here is a new cart I have been working on. It's a removable rack cart for people who use full rack length equipment on their cart. I'd love any input from the Sound Department!
  4. AudioRoot eSMART K-ART The AUDIOROOT eSMART K-ART is a low footprint power distribution box with a total of 16 direct DC power outputs and 4 x USB 5V ground isolated outputs. The K-ART includes 10 led illuminated power switches, a main power switch and 2 battery fuel gauges. Like it’s little brother eSMART BG-DU the K-ART is fully compatible with any type of battery ranging from 9 to 18V. When used with our eSMART Li-xxWh batteries the K-ART provides full battery informations without any calibration routine. This product was designed for use on small to medium size location s
  5. Following feedback SOUNDCART are updating the Compact Bag Cart (Red) and will be releasing the Mk 2 on 1st January 2017. The Mk2 now features elements found in our flagship Production Sound Cart such as 19" rack strips front (20u) and back (12u), the ability to fold down (without tools) as well as fully height adjustable rear handles. Model specific accessories will include front casters (adjustable feet as standard like the MiniCart), adjustable shelves and a 3u adjustable monitor extension (180 degrees). Our range of universal accessories are all fully compatible such as the boom
  6. Here is a concept for a Follow Cart based on the Bag Cart (1070mm x 710mm x 565mm HxWxD). It has 15u of rear storage and a further 2u at the front. It has a cover that unscrews and rises up to become a work surface (as shown in the CAD drawings). The cart would be compatible with all of SOUNDCART's universal accessories however would not fold as the other cart designs do. I welcome your thoughts and opinions...
  7. I recently produced some blueprints for my carts. Here they are. I'm planning further modifications and accessories in the New Year. Any suggestions or requests?
  8. Introducing a new concept in Production Sound Carts for 2016. Thoughts, constructive comments and suggestions please (thanks again for all of those that contributed a few months ago when I posted my Bag Cart concept). Dimensions: 1150mm x 718mm x 715mm Storage: 8u Racking front (19") & Rear (10.5") Weight: Under 14kg Max Load: 40-50kg Wheels: Front 6" & Rear 16" Folded down the dimensions are 1150mm x 718mm x 395mm (including the rear wheel) or 995mm x 718mm x 340mm (without the rear wheel) so ideal for transporting in the boot of a standard ha
  9. I'm visiting New York City from September 16 - 21, to demonstrate my cart to rental houses. If you wish a personal demo while I'm there, please write or give me a call.

  10. Here are some images of a new cart we shall be launching in Q2 2016 which we are calling the MiniCart. This ultra-compact bag cart is designed for those on a budget as well as those with limited space to transport a cart to location. It features 18u (10.5" wide) rack space, a slide-out shelf - ideal for mounting a CL-12- and should accept most of our standard cart accessories including boom holders, antenna holders etc. Dimensions are 910mm x 500mm x 435mm (H x W x D). Maximum load 10kg. Specification is subject to change following the beta testing phase. Estimated R
  11. Here are some CAD drawings of my forthcoming Sound Cart (hopefully available end this month). Last chance to send me your ideas and feature requests before a final design is locked down. Made of aluminium the cart is extremely light-weight yet very strong. It has been primarily designed as a bag cart however it would be suitable for those that need a compact "grown-up" cart (max load 25kg). It features a total of 18u storage (3x 6u) in addition to 3u dedicated to video monitor use (which can be angled). Because standard 19" racking is employed, you can customise it using any 19" gear (shelves,
  12. Next time, i will build a slim version of this heavy beast, but hopefully for some folks it will be interesting to see what others try to do at downtime. I had the luck to become a rest of aluminium profiles from a friend and started to work out a plan, how i can use this type of material in a way, that i can make some changes afterwards, cause i´d never done this before. I really enjoy to work with this material, because you have the feeling to work with a Lego construction system. Building the cart just take two Days, i know two days for this primitiv cage is a joke, but it was heav
  13. With the primary intent of losing weight and making my cart more mobile and easier to manage, I built a new vertical cart frame with 8020. I also built a new 1RU DC system with 8 individually switched outputs powered by either AC or a 20Ah LiFePO4 pelican battery. I don't have final weights, but this cart is over 40lbs lighter than my previous cart based on a magliner vertical junior. After having my monitors broken in the past, I moved the bnc inputs and outputs along with 2 audio in/outs to the base of the cart by the wheels so the cables laying on the ground and a bit protected and don't
  14. In what by now qualifies as annual ritual, evaluate, re-evaluate, research, conversate, cogitate and take action to up my game. Thanks to all my pals for your invaluable experience, input, feedback and advice. This year, find myself satisfied with the bones of the operation (mixer, recorder, wireless), and it's been my plan not to change too much in that regard until the control surface dust settles into something I can invest in that meets my needs. In the meantime, I'm left with finesse and deepening layers of failure anticipation with an extra R1a here, and various small mainten
  15. 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
  16. Prompted by Jeff's #fbf post on FB today, I'm about to embark on a cover solution to my current cart configuration. I've been in New Mexico for the last 4 months and the wind, dust, rain, etc. that I have experienced has got me thinking. The boat cover, sail maker route seems to be the most logical as is evident by the photo Jeff posted today. Anyone have experience with this in LA? Any recommendations? Thanks in advance. PWP
  17. Hi All, My basic question: for the frequent flying mixer, do you prefer to break your sound cart and contents down into pelican cases or to use a shock absorbing rack mount case (i.e. SKB)? Details: I'm building a first proper sound cart. I'm drawn to rack-mount carts, as I like the idea of not having to build out the cart often, but open to being talked out of this. I travel for shoots as a bag based mixer an average of two weeks a month, so I'm often flying. I'm in talks to do a feature overseas and need some advice on putting together a traveling cart, but I'll also be mixing indepe
  18. Hi everybody, i've been working as location sound recordist mainly with a soundbag, but now i switch to a sound cart setup. i'm using 4 sennheiser ek 3241 receivers. can anybody tell me what is the best way to run them with two fin antennas? i think it's a simple question, but i would be happy to get some good advices
  19. Here is a pic of my soundcart I buildt a few years back. Still being improved, of coarse. It is based on magliner, modified with shelves and stands for booms, antennas etc. It can hold two 35 Ah batterys but usually I only use one, the other batteryholder goes to the wireless utility bag, wich is the same size. Two lentequip cabledrums can also fit on the bottom, giving easily 50m of video cable if needed. It can either hold my Ad 256 or as here a drawerkit. In this production I need quickly to go off-cart so the mixer is too fuzzy. All the antennasplits are done in the bag. So one has to swit
  20. Hi all, I'm building my first sound cart for my first feature film. Now I'm looking for a way to power and charge it. Of course I've found Powermax, PSC and Meon, but they are way out of my budget right now. Anyone experience in powering equipment without the expensive powering systems, with lead acid batteries? It needs to run my SD744, a 442, 3 wireless sennheiser, all on hirose. And if possible I'd like it to run my macbook as well... Anyone some DIY-tips?
  21. Hi sound people, I have uploaded pictures and information about my current mix cart that I used for the just finished Woody Allen film . Unfortunately the upload did not show up in the gallery section as intended due to an issue with the jwsound site software. You can see the pictures and info here: Email me with comments!

  22. Hi everyone I have been in the look for a new mixer for the cart. I have been using a rental CL-9 and was thinking on buying one. But i hate the fact that i have to loose an iso for a talkback mic. So i'm thinking that if i'm going to loose an iso, at least i should gain better preamps and outputs, so i'm looking into an external mixer, like a cooper or audio developments. But i have seen a lot of people using the yamaha 01v96, or sonosax or similar. I would love the extra channels and outputs and all, but i'm just wondering, how do you power it on the cart? They only accept 120-240v, so do
  23. An ongoing topic over the winter, as I proceed toward downsizing the main cart. Drill down (ahem) into some detail in the video relative to accessorizing and punching holes in the shelves, including putting some handles on the nose end for going up stairs, and a small nose-end shelf as a phone charging station. Got an iPhone charging cable, but hope to get donations of Blackberry and a couple other phone charging cables (got any extras laying around?) to plug in to the external AC option I opted for: The AD255 and clip board fit just right: Um-hm. Tomorrow, the re-wir
