  2. Sound Devices recorders - which way to go?

    They are all machines of exceptionally high quality. It just depends on what you want it to do, and what you can afford to spend. I love my 664, but I have used 633 before too, and it's also great. I also have my 788T, which I like for many reasons and use as my primary machine, for now, but I prefer the analog front end of the 664. I still think nothing compares to the 442/744T combo. It's really just splitting hairs.

  4. Sound Devices recorders - which way to go?

    Although rented gear in India is not the best for comparison, but i will do that for sure.
  5. Viviana or Ursa?

    Perhaps it’s a bit more than that, but I believe the trademark will only protect the product‘s name and maybe that of his company. I do not think that it will protect the product innovation itself. Such as it is...
  6. Hi, Anybody here who knows if the Wisycom MTP40S/MTP41S EU transmitters will work fine with a US receiver? Any reason it shouldn't work? No luck getting an answer from Wisycom or by searching. Have an opportunity on a well priced receiver from the US and would hate to pass on it. But would also not be thrilled wasting my money if it doesn't work with my EU transmitters. Would really appreciate some advice on this.

  8. Wireless Frequencies Germany and Ireland

    what is going to be at the end? its a war: Vodafone, telecom, 3, against all sound recordists in the world by 2022 in Italy (i suppose all over Europe) goodbye over 694 Mhz and actually below that range in some areas is impossible to work.
  9. Wireless Frequencies Germany and Ireland

    this page has quite a lot of good info for germany (in german, but you should be able to make sense of it, or use google translate) https://www.thomann.de/de/onlineexpert_page_funkmikrofone_informationen_zu_frequenzzuteilungen.html
  10. Wireless Frequencies Germany and Ireland

    790-823 MHz are already lost to 4G. Fmscan.org works well for Germany to find free channels.

  13. Show me your bag

    Its from my hungaryan engineer friend. Professor Istvan Rieger. He is the professor of RF department at the Technical University Budapest. He is not to fast in the production, but very good of the quality. If you want one, i will ask him. Its very small!! And it has 2*6 rf distro. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Show me your bag

    I too would like to know which Antenna Splitter you are using. Cheers, Evan
  15. Show me your bag

    Just used a 10T and it was in a small Stingray bag. Wasn't using the L-mount batteries but it did have the AA battery sled on it and there seemed to be plenty of space below it.
  16. Lectronics antennae for Zaxcom QRX200

    John. Sorry, I see now that was unclear. I actuallly could go about two metres further before the TRXs dropping out with the Lectronics antennas. Larry: Fantastic answer! Some of it is a bit over my head, since I do not have any theoretical knowledge of how radio transmission/reception works but I think I get the gist of it. Thanks!

    Solve the dilemma easily get a Zaxcom Deva 24.....:)
  18. Dolby card repairer

    Thanks Bash, I have emailed Norman, my fingers are crossed. Would love to get the unit back to spec. Cheers MarkC
  19. Hi Guys, I've got a couple of trips coming up. What are the allowed wireless frequencies in Germany and R.O.Ireland? Will I need a license? Thanks................
  20. Show me your bag

    Well, it's really simple: When I started I bought a 633 because I rented it a couple of times before and really liked the workflow of that machine. I had two Sennheiser EW100 wireless microphones, and later upgraded them to Zaxcom. Still now I wouldn't get a Maxx because of reasons, and I'd rather save money now to maybe buy a DEVA 24 than to upgrade to a Nomad 12 now since 633 fills 85% of my needs at this moment. And you can have a great Zaxcom/Zaxnet workflow with the QRX235/QIFB. The only downside is that I need to use an Analogue signal between QRX's and 633. If my jobs get bigger i'll decide if I go the DEVA 24 route(when they have integrated Zaxnet transmitter and Dante input) or maybe a next version of Sound Devices (if they decide to not go prosumer again)
  21. Dolby card repairer

    Norman Brown may well be your man. I believe he is a bit of a Dolby god. norbro@talk.com
  22. Fostex DV824

    I 'think' that you can get utilities that will allow you to read udf discs within windows etc.... I seem to remember that usually the problem is that the CD/DVD drive on your computer does not read udf formatted discs. iirc, udf is the format on most/many cf cards Have you tried to read it on a mac? v 2.22 is on the Fostex website. no mention of 2.25 there https://www.fostexinternational.com/docs/tech_support/software_updates.shtml
  23. Dolby card repairer

    Hello, I have a 35 year old Dolby 372 unit that needs some servicing. I contacted Dolby and unfortunately they do not service their older instruments anymore. Everything on the left channel works but the right channel has a shrill thinning sound when playing back a 320 wBn test, encode in record with NR on has no problem, however, playback "NR off" produces a distorted,/scratching sound. I feel like I have exhausted my options besides constant cleaning etc. Do any of you leaders have any advice for troubleshooting or suggestions of whom I could contact to inspect/repair this unit. I am using a Nagra X4S at 15ips with Stellavox AMI48 mixer. As always, any advice will be greatly appreciated. Thank you MarkC
  24. Viviana or Ursa?

    Ironic indeed. I had a fairly heated exchange with Daniele some time ago when he announced them and I dared to suggest that they were an exact ripoff of Ursa. He went to great lengths to explain that they must be completely different because he 'has a patent'. I questioned this, and after quite a lot of bad tempered to and fro we finally got to the facts..... being that he has registered an EU trademark.... which is not exactly the same thing in any way - in fact it is basically a form filling excercise. I absolutely applaud invention and innovation in our business, and the people who work hard and risk their own money, in order to make products that make our working day easier and more efficient. I see neither of these attributes in Viviana Straps, which makes me very sad.
  25. Viviana or Ursa?

    Like I said: solvable but annoying.
  26. Viviana or Ursa?

    Whatever you are gonna buy, they will do the job.
