Cine RT interfering with sound mics

Saul Oliveira
 

Hello, I have heard of, at least one, sound department that had interference in their microphones with de new Cine RT system.

what is your experience on this matter?

Hey Saul,

I’ve had my CineRT since the demoing/prototyping stages, and I’ve been using it on every show I’ve done, and every daycall as well, since. Love it!

Laird (the guy who builds them) made a point to show me the setting in there that “makes the sound guys happy” if they ever hear it. But I’ve never once needed it. Not once. But the option is there!

That’s working with heaps of different sound people. None have ever mentioned anything. And I’ve never heard it on the comtek either.

Thanks,

Nope. Not a peep or raised eyebrow from Sound in 2 years. Lots of wireless units being used on actors. Not to mention we 1st ACs had com-techs to hear all the very quiet dialogue. So we’d also know if there was something amiss. 

The Sound team on our last Series were pretty ruthless when it came to noise or interference on set. Don’t even think of leaving your phone on vibrate across the stage! They hear everything, and they know where you live.

I did have issues on one or two occasions.. Only when using radio mics. Apparently the build of these mics is perceptual to vibrations when the ultrasonic ‘sound’ of the cineRT or cinetape hits it at close range full on causing the internals of the mic to produce a clicking sound.
It’s less than with a cinetape but it still occurs.

Lowering the sensitivity to 25 or 30 instead of the standard 50 solved the problem. I’m curious about what setting Laird suggested..

It all depends on what mics the sound guys are using and how difficult they want to be I guess but in any case, should it occur it’s easily fixed and you don’t need to unplug the cineRT to stay friends with the sound dept.

Hey Bart,

The setting I’m referring to:

In the vitals menu, there’s a button that looks like a sound mixer. Literally, it’s a little face with headphones on. Click it, and it turns into a smiley face. That’s “make the soundies happy mode”.

I’ve never needed to try it!
