    I’m still wary of latency and internal batteries. 19ms is a lot; not if these mics are your only sound source since that’s easy (though annoying) to correct in post. But once other sources are added,...

    Or they came up with entirely new soap operas that tried to appeal to young viewers through younger casting or just purely bizarre concepts. For the former, Sunset Beach comes to mind. For the...

    Personally, I don’t really care what things say on paper. I care how they feel, sound, and operate in the field. And I care about durability.

    Having used both, the Sound Devices MixPre series...

    1) Broadcast television is struggling to remain profitable at any time of day.

    2) Soap operas relied for a long time on generational perpetuation of viewer base, but younger generations never got...

    The cage’s primary load bearing should be anchored under the camera, with connection to the hot shoe only in addition for more stability.

    “Universal” camera cages always have extremely annoying...

    The MZF-8000 is, as far as low-cut filters, pretty much a one trick pony (except that it also has a -10dB pad). The switchable low-cut starts at 160Hz, which is pretty high and really only useful in...

    Keep it at 48kHz. That’s what your NLE uses, that’s what native audio export/delivery is.

    96kHz and 192kHz are great... if you’re going to be pushing the signal around in all sorts of weird ways...

    VERY interested to hear your thoughts. My NTG-3 is still rocking after 9 years. It’s a backup to my Sennheiser 8060 for dialog, but does still get put into use often and especially with my SFX...

    I built a set of Yashica ML lenses years ago. Also known as the “poor man’s Zeiss”. I sold the lenses a while back and came to regret that decision, so I’ve rebuilt the collection. 24mm f/2.8, 35mm...

    You did mention high-quality sound files specifically in your original post. Going straight into a phone with the TRRS input pretty much negates any benefits of recording to 24/48 WAV just because...

    I’ve always liked Voice Record Pro for in-a-pinch use.

    Use of an external mic is pretty much dependent on what kind of interface you have. Take a look at IK Multimedia iRig interfaces for a couple...

    Why?

    Labor only can be $500-750. A basic kit fee can be $200-250, and that’s just the mixer/recorder, boom kit, and 2 wireless channels. Add extra fees per wireless channel, for TC slate, TC sync...

    A well-cared-for, 1st-generation Sound Devices MixPre-6 with accessories.

    This recorder has been a solid workhorse for SFX field recording, a great recorder for smaller video productions, and an...

    [FS: Audio] Hypercardioid Mic Pair Kit - ATU873r

    If you're in need of a good, basic hypercardioid condenser mic to expand your sound kit, the Audio Technica U873r is a great place to start. These mics have been used on projects from short films to...

    Thanks for the correction, Paul! I had read through the user manual and somehow missed that function! Though, that does sacrifice the audio output, so no cam hop or Comtek in that case. So, it’s...

    For the MixPre-3 II, it takes TC in only. It does not send it out. Options for TC in are the mini HDMI in and the 3.5mm aux in.

    Your best bet is to use Tentacle Sync boxes.

    Considering most recorders that can run on AA batteries pretty much suck those batteries dry fairly quickly, I’d imagine there’s been no improvement in that department.

    Seems to me that they sort of did this in reverse, but not as a 633 replacement. Just looking at physical design and layout, it looks like the Scorpio followed the MixPre-10T as the much-more-capable...

    It’s not recording simultaneously. It’s an “instantaneous” transfer. Shortly after recording starts, a backup copy begins transferring to the USB thumb drive. This transfer may be completed shortly...

    For that, I pour Coke on the floor the evening prior (so it gets good and sticky). Then I invite the neighbors over to talk and answer phone calls throughout the movie.
