Re: Recomended Mic Placement for Orchestra Recording

I use PluralEyes and it's worked quite well for me. I've had as many as 8 cameras running so I'll gladly use any automation that works.

Re: Recomended Mic Placement for Orchestra Recording

While using a digital 2.4gHz wireless should get a much cleaner and less delayed signal for sync than just using the balcony camera's local mics, remember there is some amount of delay in the digital processing of the new wireless mic systems. It might be less than a frame, but it's easy to test out and find exactly what this amount is. That way if something seems slightly delayed even with a wireless connection, you'd know what it was coming from.

Re: Recomended Mic Placement for Orchestra Recording

Yes, you're absolutely correct - there is still a few millisecond delay. The System 10 latency is spec'd at 3.8ms.which would be roughly 1/10 frame. I can live with that. Allowing for a little more latency through the MOTU box it's probably closer to 1/5 of a frame. I can live with that as well. If they want it any better than that they can get me an assistant or two and I'll run cable. I remember one time I did have two people running cable and after it was all done it turned out the male and female ends were swapped. Which is why I carry a couple of short cables with convertible ends as gender changers.
