  2. I need some used sound equipment

    Ah yes. I was reading it on mobile so couldn't see his post count.

    Just so you know, there is a Want to Buy/Want to Sell section. It only appears when you're logged in.
  4. 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.

    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!
  9. on-camera hypercarioid X/Y to reject op's noises?

    Someone should let Shure know about that so they can update their website...
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. Sound Devices Mix Pre-3 and Mix Pre-6

    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.
  13. 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.
  14. Sound Devices Mix Pre-3 and Mix Pre-6

    @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.
  15. 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.
