    I am not talking about rental houses, sorry for the confusion. Id like to think that you would charge significantly more if you are using a cantar than an f8. It is not the same, plus you have to recuperate your investment so you charge the fair price. In the future when recorders are only 100 dollars we are going to loose a big chunk of our income. It will only be a day rate for the operator. And its all zooms fault! lol Because producers don't know the difference. It was a well kept secret, timecode used to cost so much.. That would give the pros a chance to make a living. Right now what is saving us is that there is no affordable wireless that are any good. I would not be surprised if zoom try to make some soon. And sound devices is following their lead. I guess you can call it progress, but we are the ones that end up loosing.

    I don't think its right to rent an f8 at the same rate as a 688. If a person is charging production for their equipment, it is dishonest that they charge them like they're using top of the line gear when they are not. Production is not getting what they are paying for.

    Laurel v Yanni explained!

    amazing, thanks for sharing!
  5. fakebook is just another tool manufactures have. It is a nice compliment but should not be their only source of customer contact. I think there is no responsibility for the manufacturer to reply via facebook. If you really are in an emergency the phone and email are better. However some answers are faster to find on the facebook groups than on the phone so its nice to have. Im thinking of quitting facebook actually, i hate it. The main reason I haven't is because of the sound groups I enjoy. Nothing like the original tho.. JWsound.

    Deva 24 seminar

    im just really happy we are going to have something like the deva 24 soon. Deva 24 + rx12. Id rather they finish it well than give out something thats not done. Time it took to make something has no relevance once its already made. On a side note I feel there should be another serial port extra. Who nows what the future will bring? also to hook up two rx12s to the deva 24. so badass.

    Looks amazing! I would prefer a deva over a cantar. However I am not a fan of those deva faders.. I feel it would be hard mixing on them since they have no grooves or tips. Mixing multiple faders at once looks very challenging.

    Production Mix Structure

    I am glad you are considering mixing. It all depends on the situation. Go with what sounds best to your ears for which ever particular situation you are in. I have no problem with my mix consisting of only the boom if that is what sounds best. I will then feed lavs into the mix as needed or vice versa. To me the biggest challenge in a mix is to avoid phasing issues.. The fewer mics you have open at once the better as a general rule of thumb. You can monitor all of your tracks using your PFLs or different headphone presets, like boom on the left and lavs on the right. Also, remember that you can make things sound louder with the faders not just quieter. Trying to achieve a consistent sound across the entire scene is top advice. Also depending on what you are shooting to try and make it sound how it looks, like CrewC mentioned. To me, all of this is the difference between storytelling and just recording isos..
