The DTS Pouch folds up small and stores on your cart, belt or bag and when needed folds out to a roomy storage pouch to hold a bunch of gear and accessories while you’re on the run. I found it was a really comfortable and with the strong clip will hold several np1 batteries. The […]

Why Was KTek KBAC1 Made? The KTek KBAC1 is a solution for sound mixers and recordists that are also booming. Typically this is the situation for single talent on camera or in a documentary kind of case. This is rather than strapping your boom pole lengthways to the front of your bag which can make it more […]
Not just 1 filter but 3 PopAudio send me some pop shields to try as I’m setting up a post production wing for my soundrolling brand. I really liked that it wasn’t just 1 filter fits all but 3 of them. Here is a breakdown of what I show in the video above. PopAudio Fabric […]
The SONOSAX SX-R4 + wiring connections for the Sonosax SX-R4+ features a very wide audio bandwidth and an extremely low noise floor; therefore it does not hide or “mask” any parasitic noise that may possibly be induced when connecting peripheral equipments, even if these parasitic noises are below the noise floor of the SX-R4 +. If […]
Yes KTek have come out with a great product the Stingray Lav Pouch. The whole idea is that you can store lavaliers separately in one easy pouch with a space to write the actors name or even if you wanted to, the mic type like Sanken or DPA 4071. This is also made useful by […]
Timecode generators are all getting smaller and smarter. 2017 offers lots of new timecode solutions that are taking what made Tentacle sync so successful and getting smaller and smarter. I thought would run down 2 new units from Timecode Systems and Ambient. The UltraSync One is from Timecode Systems and the NanoLockit by Ambient. These […]
Hey all, so after my interview with Paul Isaacs from Sound Devices about their new line of MixPre series many of you got in touch with me wanting to know my thoughts on the MixPre vs Zoom as a starting mixer recorder. Now some of you where sound designers and some sound mixers looking to […]
I am once again graced with an interview with Paul Isaacs from Sound Devices to talk about the new Mix Pre line as they get ready for NAB 2017. Paul is actually heading out tomorrow so was lucky enough to grab him. I’ve fielded questions from around the internet.First of all Paul, thanks for taking […]
The sennheiser G3 is the best (in my opinion) bet for anyone starting out and needing a good solid wireless system. You can watch the video for the full explination but in short:
The 6 series has become a very dominant player in the market and with the 788 and CLwifi app they wanted to listen to users and bring a bigger display and a cable less solution with big meters to make data entry really simple with a touch screen.
This is a walkthrough tutorial of the Android version of the Tentacle Sync App for your Tentacle Sync Timecode box. Im showing this on a Samsung Galaxy Note 4 with a slightly cracked screen haha.
This is a 3 parter to help you not only see what is better in terms of range but how much by and then different positions of the transmitter so you can get the maximum range. The transmitter power is 25mW which is the max for the UK.
I walk you through how to setup the sennheiser G3. I take you through the menu of both the transmitter and receiver and how to connect it to your mixer.
I show you various cool ways to use a contact mic for post production sound effects. There are unlimited possibilities.
I came across this funny product that other day which is essentially playing the stereo music or sound from TV etc.. through just one headphone.
This is a test of how long the sound devices 664 will last with 5 freshly charged 2900mah AA batteries and recording a Sennheiser 416 with phantom power and recording the ISO and 1 side of the mix track.
I’m here with Tentacle Sync and Max taking about a new timecode generator solution, so Max tell us about yourself and Tentacle Sync…
I recently had a extensive test run of the Tig Q28 from Mozegear. I also had a chat with Laurie who is the Sales Manager for Mozegear to tell us all more about Mozegear and where it fits into the timecode spectrum.
Nice little turn out in Ealing town hall today for the SoundPro 2014 event. Lots of the usual suspects there, especially the house hold names of Raycom, Everything Audio, Pinknoise, Soundkit. Notable entry from Rycote, their Cyclone windjammer. I hear they are doing a better wind test video than the one they previously released which […]
Hey All, So IBC is over now and there has been loads to look at. I was working for all of it so no time to go, but some fantastic videos from the IPS (institute of production sound in the UK) that gave a really good overview of all the vendors. You can see the […]
Matt at Soundrolling.com Chats with Ofer from Orca Bags. I chatted with the original founder of Petrol Bags about his new company Orca Bags.
This is a very simple (yet still slightly long) overview of the Lectrosonics SRA Dual Receiver.
The Lectrosonics SRA Dual Receiver is very good with the hybrid SRB transmitters and I run through the menu and roughly how I set things up. Please leave comments below and I can elaborate on certain areas in more detail.
This is a really great piece of engineering. Very good range and limiters are the biggest bonuses to the Lectrosonics SMB over other models like the Sennheiser G3 wireless (which i still use) working with the sound devices 664 I think they make a brilliant team. There is also the double battery version which lasts double the amount of time. I have 2 sets of both for different miking requirements.
This is an obvious title in a way, after all of course you need the best of everything right? Well this is a post that explains my previous thoughts about having a set of G3s and then making the big jump to the Lectrosonics. This post is for other people that are weighing up with the decisions of which brand to go for. Now i am obviously talking about Lectrosonics from the Sennheiser G3 wireless.
