I own a Mackie mixer because it is cost effective but not by any means the best out there.

audio channel 1 and channel 2

I just received the media packet from the Outdoor Channel in hopes of providing them with some wildlife footage. Their audio requirements are that there is no audio recorded on channel 1, only on channel 2. To me, that seems ridiculous. Doesn't that take away the ability of the camcorder to record in stereo? I did some recording only on channel 2, burnt it to disc, and then played it on a friend's dvd player. You could barely hear the audio even when the volume on the tv was turned completely up. Does anyone know why they would have that requirement? If not I will call them on Monday.

It seems reasonable. They are going to do something else with the blank channel. TV isn't really stereo for the most part anyway.

If you couldn't hear a single channel, then either your recording or the transfer wasn't done correctly.

Smartsound

I was wondering if anyone can fill me in on the difference between Sonicfire Pro v.s. the Quicktracks version of the software. I know that Quicktracks is designed as a plug-in for Premiere Pro, but does it have the same features as the Sonicfire Pro version? In other words, if I was using Premiere Pro, should I use the less expensive plug-in version, or is there some benifit to using the more expensive Sonicfire Pro version? Or is there a difference at all?

Thanks in advance.

An 897 vs lav in wind

Of course, you'll expect the shotgun to do better, but here is a short clip of one vs the other.

Thanks for posting that Douglas... clips like this are educational and appreciated.

Beas and I have focused mainly on the sound of one mic or another, but I've thought it would be interesting to demonstrate a particular technique.

Bravo for the multimedia demo!

Anyone tried the WindPAC yet?

Looks really interesting, and they claim 60 mph before it needs anything else. They claimed at NAB that it would be shipping in June/July of this year, but I've yet to see anyone review it. (I've asked since April)

Turner S34X?

Anyone know of a place to find one of these? I've looked around for a few years off and on, never found a working one. I'm guessing I'm gonna have to find a non-working one and stick something else in it. Mostly for a prop, but would prefer a working one.
If you don't know what they look like, http://www.poupart.com/us/andy/vinta...TurnerS34X.htm

My recommendation for finding less-than-common items like this is to set up an automated search on eBay. It will email you once per day on any day that someone puts up an auction for the item you searched for. I've managed to get a lot of rare and/or obscure stuff this way, though it can take months or even years, depending on the item.

That's a cool looking mic, though.

New Wireless Mic

I am looking for any info on audio-technica's wireless mic (ATR288W). Is this a good wireless mic? Anyone out there using it? I will be using it mainly for weddings and sermons. I have used it once and gotten a little static in my recording. The receiver is the Pro 88W/R and the transmitter is the Pro 88W/T

SGM-1x going wireless

Please tell me if this is correct. Is the SMG-1x able to go wireless?
If this is so would the 41xt, 51xt, wx/t-pro Transmitters work with the SGM-1x? What recievers would work in conjunction? Rather what is the recommendations for these combos do you guys use or have used? Lets say at a distance of 20 feet, I am just punching in a number to get an idea.

How do you work a shotgun off a wall?

1. I've seen several references to using walls or windows to somehow tune or augment the performance of a shotgun indoors. Could someone expand on that a little?

2. Maybe I can sneak this question in here so I don't have to betray my ingorance in a subject line: I just can't seem to get the meaning of ENG from context in any of the posts I've read. What does it mean/stand for?

ENG= electronic news gathering.

Using a shotgun off of a wall has been discussed here several times, and is variable in results depending on the shotgun, the performance, and the room all working together (or not) to get a better (or worse) sound. Getting a shotgun mic near a wall pointing straight away from the wall, or putting semi-parallel to the wall pointing towards a corner sometimes works wonders in otherwise too-reflective rooms.
