    NAB 2018 Products update

    Seems to be fairly large difference between the 2 just on the lappy speakers - not much bottom end on the me2, probably more lav than tx/rx, me2 1/4 of price of mke2

    Zoom F8n.

    Not at all, it's not rocket science, some stuff is better than other stuff, if you've got the option you use the better stuff - there's no point arguing subjectivity, that's what kicked off this conversation in the first place.

    Zoom F8n.

    What is your point? As I read it you were inferred a renowned recording artist recorded vox on lo-fi cheap gear, however you were completely mistaken, so er, what was the point being made? Anybody can use anything to do some sort of job, a pro / craftsperson will use the best gear they can. 633 preamps are better than f8 preamps / the difference is a very apparent difference that counts to a few people initially and many more down the line whether they know it or not / If you don't think initial quality counts you either have low production values, poor hearing, poor monitoring or haven't done much post mixing / they are also more expensive / you get what you pay for / technology is changing, you get more for less, not necessarily a good thing / there's a good reason vinyl is having a resurgence .... IMHO ( except for pre quality matter, that's just a fact ) I'll probably get a f8n as backup / extra tracks, but I would much rather 788 / 688 / nomad

    Burnout, stress, depression: experiences?

    When I first started in the industry about 12-13 years ago I worked for about the first 2 years in a busy production office without really having a lunch break - I broke down after a while and became really angry and sad and had to take 6 weeks off to stare out the window. It was an amazing experience that I value to this day - I learnt a lot about myself and where my 'edges' were. It's good to know ones limits, there's possibly better ways of discovering them

    DPA 4098 - first impressions

    Last rig I did I ran cables to a 302 and sent line level to my bag, I'm using 4099s tho I think they're lower sensitivity.

    Delivering files from multiple recorders

    Beauty - thank you sir - this is very useful

    Lectrosonics SMWB coming soon?

    oh there we go - I'll defer to Phil on this one - I've got a few complaints about premiere pro exports myself!

    Lectrosonics SMWB coming soon?

    Protools ( and I imagine pretty much all audio post software ) has settings to convert all ingested files to same sample rate/bit depth automatically and/or supports mixed formats anyways - it's kinda a non-issue if you ask me

    For the Whisky drinkers

    There's nothin' quite like the depth found in certain aged cask strengths - Coming to the bottom of a Adelphi Caol Illa - outrageous stuff - too easy to drink

    For the Whisky drinkers

    80 proof is 40% alcohol - anything above from that is better with a drop of water anyways
  12. You're asking in the context of getting a feed to your cart/bag for your own reference tho hey?
  13. 2 frames not too bad, a good dialog editor can see about a 1/4 frame out but ( my theory ) is most people won't see this but will still feel like something's not right - depends if you're mixing to the picture somewhat - im getting a feed that's 11 frames from vid split or 5.5 frames delay if I use the Qtake stream and it's a PITA

    Advice on sound kit R4+/SD/Zax/Zoom

    I disagree with the above comments. I think it's well worth getting some kit, aim for decent used stuff - the Sonosax is maybe overkill to start with - the other 2 recorders will likely be a useful back up ( or Renter ) for a good while if you do upgrade - I would also look at a 633 it covers 90% of my gigs, as does 3 wires and a boom. IFB you can start with a couple and add as you go - G3s are great - get the best boom you can afford ( ie a step up from the Rode ) you'll never regret it
