  1. Marantz PMD-706 Six Channel DSLR Recorder

    Ha, didn't even see that first link. Moderator - feel free to delete this comment.
  2. Sound Devices Mix Pre-3 and Mix Pre-6

    Here's a quick comparison video of the Mixpre-6/Zoom F8/633 that Curtis Judd released on Youtube:

    I will check them out. Hope it's going well!
  4. on-camera hypercarioid X/Y to reject op's noises?

    Someone should let Shure know about that so they can update their website...
  5. on-camera hypercarioid X/Y to reject op's noises?

    It seems like you're complicating it too much. For your situation, a simple on camera shotgun like a Rode VideoMic might work fine. Even better, the Shure Lenshopper VP83F has an onboard microSD recorder and you can also send a backup to the camera. You can do some basic things to cut down on the noise that you are making with footsteps and such. If it's inside, take off your shoes, don't wear noisy materials, etc. Hope that helps.
  6. DIY sound for micro budget film

    I'm curious, what were the names of the films you made in the past (that were distributed)? Good luck on the rest of the film.

    If you click through to the SoundCloud page, it lists what the setup is. If I remember correctly, the MP6 is in the left channel and the 633 is in the Right.
  8. Lightweight portable bag for 744T

    I have a Petrol PPMB (https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/562558-REG/Petrol_PPMB_PWMB_PPMB_PWMB_PSC_Mixer_Bag.html) that fits it pretty well, without being overly bulky. You would have to find one used though. It looks like a PQMB might be another option as well.

    @Kisaha - Not sure if you understood what I was saying. I wasn't implying that this was a replacement of the 744t, but I was just offering a general thought (I know this is a thread about the Mix Pre 3 & 6, but it was based on @itaro's comment) about criticizing products or complaining about a lack of updates simply because of their age. @afewmoreyears - For me, this is something to be wary of simply because of the technological environment that we have found ourselves in. People always want something better (which is fine), but then relegate older gear to the "dinosaur" category (something that I have heard the 744t referred to). When something is an excellent piece of gear, it's any excellent piece of gear, whether it's 10 years old or 20 or 50. But, as you say, we are all adults, so if you believe differently, that's fine with me. And as I mentioned before, I am also considering picking one of these up, and like you said, I have full confidence that it will sound great, being a Sound Devices product.
  10. Sound Devices Mix Pre-3 and Mix Pre-6

    I don't disagree with any of this. And, I am considering getting a Mix Pre 6 for some of these very issues. But, also I think people have a habit of wanting something new just for the sake of having something new. And I think we should be wary of this.

    I also like the size. Initially, some of the color and font choice is what made it look sort of toyish, but that was before more footage of it became available. I think it will look fine in real life. The sound quality is certainly the most important thing. I've heard people complain that the 744t is too old and should be updated, but your statement highlights my thinking about it. If a 744t sounded excellent 10 years ago and still sounds excellent compared to anything else that is available today, what's the issue with it being 10 years old? I know there are some new features that are nice to have, but the core issue of sound quality is still there. I'm looking forward to hearing what these new Kashmir preamps sound like.

    Oh, that's great! Excellent news Paul. Someone else from SD (not sure who it was) had told me differently. Do you know how often the file is saved? Or does it work a different way?
  13. Sound Devices Mix Pre-3 and Mix Pre-6

    But it barely fits! C'mon Ferrari!
  14. Sound Devices Mix Pre-3 and Mix Pre-6

    Personally, I agree with you. The sound/build quality/limiters/etc. easily get my money. I've never lost a crucial recording due to a power failure (I did lose one that was able to be redone with the JuicedLink Little DARling - unfortunately there is no screen and no way to monitor power or signal while it's on the talent - but it had this feature, so it at least kept what was recorded) either, but my workflow is very different from his, so I can understand his situation as well. I'm also looking forward to getting my hands on this.

    Haha, I figured this comment would be coming. I'm not complaining about the feature set. I think they've developed a great product at a very reasonable price, but there are still some things that are unclear so I'm trying to find answers for those questions. It would be foolish not to inquire about something that could affect your workflow or potential gigs, like chrismedr pointed out.
