  1. More of the same over here. Keeping this little go case in the bag with me. One thing I can't do without though is chewing gum (not pictured!). I'll always pick some up before a gig and when working with other mixers I'll keep a stash in the wiring bag.
  2. Nice work! This looks awesome
  3. +1 Totally depends on the AC and their preferences. Though I've generally found on smaller shoots when working as a omb, camera ops are happy to give me a few minutes to set up tc / hops (I'll always refresh myself w/the camera manual beforehand). Working as an assist on union shows Ill just hand our tc boxes and jammed slates to the camera dept. I try to make a habit in double checking that the tc readout on camera matches the slates just to be sure. The main thing is to be flexible :-)
  4. Shooting by the water tonight here in Vancouver. Enjoying the last hour of sun!
  5. I don't think the product came to fruition. Saw this on their FB page a week ago - https://goo.gl/2mXBQ8
  6. I've been a happy tentacle user, fits my needs at the moment. Havent had any issues with them. The camera dept loves how light / small they are, but its looking like alot of the current tc options have that covered now :-)
  7. Hey Philip - I pm'd you with some options. Hope that helps.
  8. Using the 744T onboard power at the moment with Sony L batts. It does the job just fine with battery changes at lunch, but I've been looking at Audio Root for my first BDS system to give me room to grow, and simplify power management down the road.
  9. Copy that - thanks. Thanks for the info Rachel! It sounds like the 49Wh will definitely cut it. I am planning on upgrading to the 633 when the time is right, but for now it's helpful to know I'll be covered either way - and can lighten the bag a touch.
  10. Very cool. Thanks for sharing. Yep, I find myself taking the 302 out of the bag when I can (even if it's just for a couple scenes), and really enjoy working with only the 744 in my bag. This is good food for thought.
  11. Hey Philip, Wanted to see if you could point me in the direction of any outboard accessories you mention with the 744 I could look into for improving workflows. I've been through the manual several times and have found the machine's output and track routings to provide a good amount of flexibility for my needs at the moment (using a 744/302). I'm sure I'll find more ways to modify the set up as gigs call for them, or as I dive into the manual again haha. Would be interested to hear from your experience.
  12. Hey Rachel, I'm curious as to what type of bag you're planning on powering with the half size 49Wh batteries? I've been thinking about going with the Audio Root system for my documentary kit (744, 416, 2 wires), and would also lean towards the lighter 49Wh option if they would suffice.
  13. +1 for the 744. It's bulletproof. I went with a used one for my first recorder purchase and couldn't be happier with its performance. Sure, you may need a higher track count at times - but I've found the 744 to satisfy a high percentage of jobs I've been taking on, and have been renting a 633 when it's necessary.
  14. Thanks Philip. Yea I've recently started using the 302 outside of location sound work and have been putting it in front of my tascam portastudio for home recordings. A handy tool indeed!
  15. Was curious if anyone has experience using a 302 vs mix pre d for this application. I'm currently using a 302 in front of inputs 3/4 on my 744 - and have been thinking about moving to a mix pre d for a lighter / smaller profile in the bag (although on paper there doesn't seem to be that much of a difference in weight). Thought I'd see if anyones had first hand experience with these mixers in front of 6xx or 7xx series, and if there are benefits in the mix pre d for a smaller footprint.
