  1. Some ppl will say it all depends. And they are right! The thing here is that you can buy a second hand 664 for $3000 and the 688 costs $6000 no second hand available... so if you've got the money go for it. Or maybe you should consider buying better lavs, wireless, mics, comteks etc... This is the game! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. So LT or SMQV? Still want to know any opinion of people using the LT units. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  3. Thanks Jim, I bought and read the book two months ago, really good! I had the concept but because it never happened to me before and was a crazy day I couldn't figure out until I arrived home and went over the options. I think this is learning, and bringing back-up units with me was the right thing to do.
  4. Ok I've found the problem!: I had the phantom power on my 744 engaged... No comments on my stupidity, if I had more experience I should've keep calm and checked everything properly like I've done when I've arrived home. What confused me that I thought it was broken is that after unplugging the 744 and resetting the 442, the 442 was distorting and peaking just by itself, nothing plugged in, just an XLR and nothing in the end... that killed me.

  5. Yes it's the Mixer 422 peaking and distorts. Just plugging in any cable to any direct outputs, connecting it to the recorder or not. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Yes I tried connecting it and it doesn't work either... I'll probably send it to SD. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. That make sense sorry. Only the 422, nothing connected except a shotgun mic mkh50, in the input 1, mic level, phantom48, headphones connected to the headphones output. Sound great, no distorsion, no peak. Jus connecting a XLR to the any direct output, and then it peaks, a lot of distorsion... etc... does it make any sense? Nothing happened with the unit before that, i used it 4 days ago and it was perfect... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. To my SD 744T that works fine, I'm using it right now in a shooting without the Mixer. Best, Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Hello guys, I'm having a problem just today with the Sound Devices 442, the Mixer seems to work perfect but as soon as I connect any xlr cable to any direct output it starts to peek like crazy, huge distorsion also and cannot record that... Just happened today, I tried to reset to factory defaults but didn't work... anyone has had the same problem with this Mixer? Is it something I am doing wrong? Any idea? Is it expensive to send it to Sound Devices for repairing? Thanks a lot in advance. Best, Manuel. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. How do you see the 788T/CL-8 doing a combo with the new Mixpre6? Forgive my inexperience. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. So with the new products we are still in the same dilema haha. The new mixPre recorders will fill other needs that the ones discussed here, unless there is a new version of the 744/788 recorders coming out soon... Best.
  12. Wow It's super small! Love it!
  13. Not really, but I would love to see something new from my favorite brand... I'm waiting to upgrade my equipment after Nab2017.
  14. I hope so, if not maybe it's time for me to start thinking on Zaxcom products...
  15. What do you think about this? I think Sennheiser wants to retain their G3 customers preventing them to migrate to Zaxcom or Lectrosonics. EK 6042: Two-channel slot-in receiver. Can connect to virtually every Sennheiser wireless system – be it analog or digital. Switching bandwidth of 184 MHz and built in convenient functions for a fully automated setup. Also a NAB 2017 news about the Sound Devices 633 makes me think this company is not launching nothing else that a firmware upgrade... very sad... SOUND DEVICES’ 633 mixer/recorder now offers Dugan automixing and Sound Devices MixAssist at no additional cost with the release of firmware v4.50, also adding SuperSlot integration with Sennheiser EK-6042 wireless, two-channel slot-in receivers.
