    In ear monitors for production sound

    I got the etymotic er4pros with custom tips for a specific job. The sound was great, but the cable noise drive me crazy. I then got some Westone es50s, and it was a revelation. The sound is amazing, and the isolation is too, and zero cable noise. They’re not so quick to put in and take out, so I only use them occasionally for production. But on an airplane, everything fades away and I’m in my own very pleasant bubble...

    664 panic

    I recently had a similar problem and was able to recover the files using sandisk rescue pro. Worth a shot.

    Data Recovery

    Update: sandisk rescue pro was able to recover all the files, with all metadata intact (as well as a whole bunch of files from years ago and many many format cycles on the card). Thanks for the suggestions!

    Data Recovery

    Thanks. I'll give audacity a shot. It would be nice to restore the timecode too- but I don't think audacity can do that.

    Data Recovery

    Hey John, no- the 702 doesn't even see most of the files. I can see them all when I look at the card in a computer, but they have wacky characters in the file name, and are .way instead of .wav changing them to .wav doesn't help.

    Data Recovery

    Hey all, I've had a card go bad from my 702T. First time it's happened after many years of trouble free recording. I seem to remember some discussion on here some years ago of someone who could recover the files, and I'm hoping someone could point me in the right direction. The file sizes are all what they should be, but the file names are corrupt and they are unplayable. I'm hopeful that they can be restored... Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks, Tom I should say, also, that the card has not been formatted. When I realized something was screwy, I stopped using the card. So everything is still in its original state.

    workflow question/Sound Devices 702

    I've had a 702T for many years now, and I love it as much now as when I first got it. It's probably the one piece of equipment I will never get rid of. I still use it when I go very light (like I am climbing a mountain with one mic plugged directly into it). I wish I could work like that all the time. You can route a single mic to both tracks, so no messing with left/right in post. In all the years I've used it, I have not had a single issue. The same cannot be said for nagras, DAT machines, computer based recorders, 664, etc.

    Rain Protection, salty water

    I did a shoot on a five day backcountry canoe trip a couple years ago, and got the NRS access duffel dry bag. My whole rig drops right in, it has a clear top, and when it's buttoned up tight, it could survive going overboard. It's also great for loading in on rainy days. Check out nrs.com

    Ear buds for location audio?

    ive got a pair of the er4s, and there's really no comparison. I was never thrilled with them- lack of low end and the micro phonics from the cables drove me crazy. The westones are in a totally different league. But the ones I have are not off the shelf earbuds, and are quite pricey. Worth it in my book.

    Ear buds for location audio?

    I got a pair of westone custom IEMs a couple years ago, and they have been a revelation. My cans are the remote audio high noise headphones (basically 7506s), and the sound was similar enough that I didn't need to adjust to a whole new sound. Just WAY better...
  11. Check out the demerbox. Battery powered, sounds good, and it's made from a pelican case, so the handle makes mounting easy.

    I used to use the cremation of Sam McGee for workflow tests. Always appreciated by editors.

    Zaxcom product launch

    So if I have a QRX100 and trx900aa/sta that is used exclusively for a camera hop, it sounds like there is no benefit to upgrading firmware. Is this correct?

    IDX NP Batteries

    Half size NP with dtap and a little Velcro would be ideal for a QRX.
