    Special Screwdriver for Sennheiser Beltpack Repair

    Does anyone know what the special screwdriver is called that you use to screw the Mic Jack in tight on a Sennheiser SK100G3 beltpack? It goes over the top of the jack and catches the two slots in the ring on the outside? I want to purchase one.

    Installing Qlab3 breaks Qlab2 audio?

    I recently had to do a show with video playback for the first time. I grabbed Qlab3 and put it on my 10.10.5 MacBook Pro, and rented a Basic license, and everything went fine. But now I find that, back on the Qlab2 Free install on the same machine, even with audio properly patched, while cues...
