  1. Sound Devices Mix Pre-3 and Mix Pre-6

    That's great to know. Thanks Mike!
  2. Sound Devices Mix Pre-3 and Mix Pre-6

    Thanks for the quick reply. So you would only need to use Tentacle's proprietary syncing software if you choose the LTC option, correct? And with the embedded metadata option, an editor could sync it with most any NLE (I know that Premiere and some others don't work with LTC)?
  3. Sound Devices Mix Pre-3 and Mix Pre-6

    Does anyone know if one uses a Tentacle Sync with the Mix Pre3/6 through the 3.5mm input, will it record LTC on one of the audio tracks or metadata timecode? I've heard conflicting things about this. Thanks, Joseph
  4. 4018c or a second 641

    Good to know, thanks. If I come across a CMC6, maybe I'll try to do a side-by-side test.
  5. 4018c or a second 641

    A bit off topic, but what would cause the degradation in quality over time? Would it be related to the mic capsule or the amplifier? I'm curious now because I use a CMC4 (modded to P48) with an MK41. I think it sounds good but maybe it could be even better. I haven't compared it to a newer one.
  6. Spring Clean

    I think you only need 5 posts (or around there) and then the Buy and Sell section will appear.
  7. Cleaning a Schoeps CMC 4/5/6 and capsules

    That's great info, thanks!
  8. Does anyone have any advice or information on the best way to clean the connections on a Schoeps CMC 4/5/6 and the capsules (MK41 specifically)? I have a CMC4 that was modded by Pete Verrando to P48, so apparently Schoeps won't clean/service it. I had an issue with humidity when using it a couple months back and I have read that it may be because there is some dirt or debris on the connection. I am going to be putting a Cut 1 filter in place so I'd like to get the connections all cleaned up and then leave it screwed together to protect against further humidity issues. Update: I found this short piece from Redding Audio: http://www.reddingaudio.com/downloads/Schoeps Technical/Schoeps Basic Care Mics - Hmty.pdf Anyone have any experience cleaning these? I might look into getting a Vark dry tube as well.
  9. Is a new Sound Devices MixPre-10T coming soon?

    Is this shipping right away? Sorry if I missed that info.

  11. MixPre-6 – worth it for this beginner?

    See, I’ve thought this and I know it’s correct, though I worked with a mixer and have seen a lot of online commenters who say otherwise. I agree with you but I’m just evaluating my options. No matter what the online commentators have to say, I would rather have a 416 into a Zoom F4 than an ME66 into a Cantar X3.
