    664 Power Issue

    I haven’t checked with a meter yet. Firmware 4.51. It didn’t have AAs at the time of the issue but I did switch to AAs and Int power for the last two hours and no issue occurred.

    664 Power Issue

    Hello guys, I ran into an issue with the SD 664 on set. I used the BDS4v to power a SRb and a 664 and ran into an issue with the 664 powering on and off randomly. At first I thought a cable might be loose so I checked everything to make sure nothing was loose and made sure to turn everything back off and on. At first the 664 kept cycling on and off until it suddenly stopped and stayed on. It worked for a bit and then it happened again. I then decided to change all the cables connected to the BDS and even swapped batteries. It seemed fine for 2 hours and then it starting doing it again. The BDS4v light never went out and the SRb never lost power either, only the 664 would lose power and cycle on and off. I'm hoping its not a 664 issue but I have contacted Sound Devices. I'm just curious if anyone else has run into a similar issue. .

    Wireless blocks in Chicago

    Hello guys, I'm looking to get another wireless kit for my bag. Currently using BLK 19 and for the most part the lower half of BLK 19 works well for me across city. Is there any other BLKs that would be recommended for use across the city that generally has some free space? I know RF interference varies from location to location but if anyone has experience with different BLKs that work well. I would greatly appreciate the advice. I have experimented with BLK 21 with little success.

    Denecke Smart Slate

    I was just curious where i could find a manual to the denecke TS-3. I just recently bought one used but it didn't have the sticker on the back detailing all the frame rates and I wanted to know more. I think I seen an image of the sticker in one of these forums but I couldn't find it. I went to the denecke website but it only had the brochure not a manual. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    Understood. Thanks Matt.

    SMDB transmitters

    Yeah I seen in another post that the 50mW isn't a huge deal other then that you need to bump up the gain a bit. Would the fixed 50mW be a very noticeable?

    SMDB transmitters

    Has anyone bought SMDB's and what's the main difference between them and smqv's and smv's. I know from the lectrosonics website smdb's are sold in the UK and Europe? I was wondering if there would be any problems operating them in the US and is any one has or is currently using them in the US? Thanks

    Can this harness be used with other production bags such as the K-Tek Stingray?

    Voiceovers/recording help

    Currently the person who runs the studio is out of town so I will need to wait to ask them since we are on break. I'll have to double check which adapter it is but you might be right about the adapter Jon. Next time I'm in there I will double check the cable and monitor the signal off the preamp.

    Voiceovers/recording help

    Yeah I believe the adapter is a PSC barrel T to 48 Phantom Power. The pre amp is a type of 192 from digidesign not sure which model. Yes I providing 48v and it does does work with a regular P48 mic I have used the regular Phantom power mic in that studio before.

    Voiceovers/recording help

    I was in my school studio recording a voiceover and two things are very concerning. The studio uses pro tools 11 hd. I set up a mic 416t with a converter to phantom power. First problem I encountered was that I had to boost the gain either all the way up or close to the limit in order to achieve levels that were close to -12db which caused plenty of hiss in the recording. Second problem was that on one of the recordings it sounded as if I clipped but the on the meters and even playback it didn't ever show that I clipped or that the levels got above -6db. When I went into another editing system i checked the recording and it showed I clipped. Any ideas why this would have happened with the recordings? The talent was not speaking softly for me to have needed to raise the gain so much. And does the mkh416t with converter add a lot of hiss or is there alot of signal loss with the adapter?
