    Not exactly. Noise specs do matter, to an extent. Example: the Shure VP-88 has an extremely high self-noise of 25dB. It’s great for stereo tracks in higher-SPL situations, but it’s dreadful for...

    The difference in sensitivity is nearly negligible (-32dBV vs -30dBV), but either way the 13dB self-noise is a very good rating. Keep in mind that manufacturer specs are not always entirely accurate...

    Was just coming to post the same thing.

    I know it’s at (or just beyond) the top end of the stated budget, but there’s a Magnus VT-400 on sale for $109. Not a super-fantastic-high-quality tripod by...

    Thanks. I looked at that one, but it’s chrome and I really would prefer it in black (which is backordered even with the riser section). And while I’d considered getting just a riser section, having...
  5. Does anyone have one of the new Lowel C-stands?

    Hi, all.

    I’m also curious about this. All the US product listings tout the headphone/line output with no indication that it mutes during recording, and I wonder how they’re able to skirt the Zaxcom patent.

    Not 100% accurate.

    I have worked on several jobs where it was made clear that they were not paying for my kit, and that they were sending theirs. Some of those are production companies that have...

    They pack a punch for not a whole lot of money. They certainly have their limitations, but there’s nothing there I’ve found that keeps them from taking on some impressive projects.

    So, you’re suggesting that someone on a MixPre-3 budget just go ahead plunk down $4500 on an 833? Or $8000 for an 888?

    Yes, the 8-series mixer/recorders have lots of great features, but not...

    This will record as a poly wave file. The MixPre has no option to record individual (split mono) wave files. You can, as Jim suggested, use Wave Agent to split the poly wave into individual, mono...

    So, do you mean you only recorded the L/R mix, and didn’t record the ISO tracks?

    You need to arm your ISO tracks (press the fader for any input, which will take you to that input’s menu screen,...

    The whole point of the MiCon connection is that it is detachable, and allows for quick swapping of connector types. If you epoxy it in place, it’s ruined.

    Lav cables are thin. That’s kind of their thing. Bulky cables are harder to dress, especially when running through/underneath wardrobe.

    Incorrect.

    If you don’t use a mid-side single-point with internal matrix, you do get separate mid (cardioid) and side (Fig8) signals. However, to reap the stereo width of the sides, you have to...

    Phantom power should be OFF. The ew100 receiver does not require phantom power to operate, and the voltage can cause signal issues and potentially even damage the receiver.
