  1. I like using black cable (less visible in public performance or plants) with coloured rings for input ID and coloured heat shrink/strain relief for length ID.
  2. Since the MixPre10T does not have direct outs for each mic pre, I don't see how a mixer will be of any benefit for real-time mixing. You could mix the streamed USB audio via your DAW, with each track placed in record monitor mode and a midi control surface providing the faders. I am not sure of the latency this setup will introduce, but it is likely to be significant, and unacceptable to anyone used to receiving a near real-time mix from a conventional mixer setup. The other option is to use a conventional mixer as the front end of your system and providing a split signal (either through the direct outs of the mixer, or (preferred) via a mic level pre-split) to the 10T. Both of the above methods are cludgy and require a lot of extra gear and cabling.
  3. OT: Best all-round DI box?

    I keep 4 Radial PRODI and 1 each of JDI and J48 in my kit. They sound great, are built like tanks and never fail. I have no reason to look for anything else.
  4. Sony MDR 7506 coiled cable

    Dave, thanks for that simple, yet effective, trick. Just reached over the desk, grabbed my pair and gave it a go. I am a fan of the Audio Technica ATHM50x, partly because of the 3 sets of detachable cables (curly cord, straight cord with regular adaptable 1/8">1/4" plug and shorter straight cord with slim 1/8" plug that fits the smaller gap in cell phone cases) they include in the package.
  5. Recording 160dB?

    What is the point of recording it at that level? I highly doubt anyone is ever going to play it back at that level. If it is a reality based show the zinger could be that the system is so loud it can't be recorded without blowing up your gear (...cue the pink smoke). BTW, if you do record it, make sure you leave at least 12dB of headroom on your recorder. We wouldn't want the signal to clip....LOL
  6. How to hide a Sennheiser ME 2 on talent

    Have you removed the windscreen to make it less bulky?
  7. Sarcanon, "Retrophiliac Hipsters" has just become my most favourite descriptor of all time. Thank you, sir!
  8. Cleaning My 01V96

    Great tip! Most of my outdoor use is for rotating acts at music festivals, so used channel faders are rarely static. I am going to put a few of these in the kit to place on channels when at rest and on unused channels during a show. Luckily my mixer has never had a fader issue in the 8 years it has been in action. I hit it with Deoxit and Fader Lube every six months or so. It's a great little board. Alan Parsons uses one in his studio.
  9. Short answer... anything the US does, Canada is soon to follow. You can view the Canadian Table of Frequencies here http://www.ic.gc.ca/eic/site/smt-gst.nsf/eng/h_sf01678.html but it has very little direct info on specific products. Perhaps a call to Industry Canada will get you closer to the answer.
  10. I agree, there must be an effect on the right track causing the reduction. Can you post a ses file of the project so that we can see what is being loaded?
  11. Everything you say about Reaper is true EXCEPT it is not free. You can download a full working copy that will never time out, but the developers rely on you to do the right thing and buy the appropriate licence after the trial period.
  12. Was it phase... or was it polarity?
  13. Line Audio Omnis

    Stunning! Wallet opening...
  14. Zoom F4

    The difference in audio quality is apparent (as the above comparison demonstrates). If that isn't important to you, save your money and go cheap. Dollar wise, and certainly unit wise, I am sure B&H do more sales with Zoom than SD.
  15. Retirement?

    The five stages of... hilarious, until you realize you can't quite define where you slot in.
