  1. NEW: Zaxcom RX-12R - Rack Mount

    Just bumped into the RX12R user guide. I'm not understanding the choice of having the modules analog outputs divided between XLRs and DB25 connectors: if I understand correctly, A side of the receivers will be outputted from the XLRs, B side from the DB25. It seems a little bit strange to me. Moreover, I'm not really understanding the AES output functions of the second DB25 connector (anyway, it is not available at the moment due to the AES combiner board that is not currently available). Moreover, I'm not able to understand how a Stereo Transmitter could be outputted (by analog or digital), and by which connectors, since it seems to me that only 2 channels could be outputted from a single module, not 4 as required in this case. Just thinking...
  2. Deva 24 seminar

    I never thought about this by this perspective. Now it makes more sense to me too. Thanks.
  3. Deva 24 seminar

    I would have preferred to have way less analog inputs (or as a user option 4, 8, 12, 16), so less preamplifiers, to maybe have a lower cost of the machine. In the last years, I'm using Zaxcom wireless and I'm going everything digital in the recorder (Fusion in my case, at the moment), so I'm not seeing when I'll be supposed to use 16 analog inputs on a set. On other thing, to me it's still strange and funny that RX12 connector and Digital Inputs connector on the DEVA24 are on the opposite side of usb and outputs connectors in the RX12. So the cables need to go from right rX12 to left deva24, looking at the screens. Just saying.
  4. Delivering files from multiple recorders

    I really don't know why as well, but it happened that we were asked to provide ALE reports (i.e. for a couple of Netflix project last month). We told them that all the metadata were written on the audiofiles and on our digital sound reports but they still wanted the ALE report. So, since you're starting from scratch, I was asking. Thanks anyway, I will try the demo. V.
  5. Cart building day!!!

    Beautiful! May I ask you how the front cover (the blue one with the handle) works? It slides down or you simply remove it, or something else? Thanks, Vale.
  6. IMHO, it is more "incomplete" than abandoned. It is a wonderful machine and I'm using my Fusion12 for years now, but it has several bugs that never came to a solution. Just to make an example, we have a "wireless" button that never had a function.
  7. 7.57 was removed at some point because was non affordable, if I'm not wrong. So, the recommended version still remains 7.56 Many things should have been improved on Deva/Fusion firmware but unfortunately this will never happen.
  8. new plugOn TRX from Zaxcom

    As far as I understand, the XLR version doesn't have NeverClip too.
  9. At this link (ENG. Version), down in the page you can download a deep interview I made to Steven Morrow about his job on "La La Land", for our association of italian sound technicians (A.I.T.S.). Hope you could like it (and forgive me if there are some mistakes in the text, my english is not so perfect). Vale.
  10. Collapsing tracks

    I'll always try to record the same actor on the same track. So, if actor #2 is not present in a take, I record an empty track instead of having actor #3 collapsing 1 track up.
  11. Super CMIT and wireless phase issues

    Thanks Matthias, this was exactly what I was trying to say, but in appropriate words.
  12. Super CMIT and wireless phase issues

    The thing I was trying to say, remembering (I hope correctly) the words of Helmut Wittek, is that "the phasing with wireless mics" we're talking about with the SuperCmit is not depending only by the usual factory delays we have with new digital systems, or by the different time the sound arrives to Boom and lavs. For what I've understood from his words, you can place a person speaking steady in a point with a lav and a Boom over him (everything locked), and you still will not be able to have the two mics in a correct phase. Even playing with the delay on the channel.
  13. Super CMIT and wireless phase issues

    Some months ago I had the opportunity to attend a meeting with Helmut Wittek, talking about Schoeps microphones. If I remember and understood correctly, he said that the Supercmit processor acts on 4 different frequency ranges, separately. That is the reason (I guess he said) he doesn't recommend it to be combined with wireless mics, because it could have different latency at different frequencies, so it should be difficult to phase it correctly. He told us this mic was not properly intended for our use, but mostly for sports etc. This is what I think I understood, but if someone can correct me please chime in.
