  3. An Open Letter to Sound Devices

    For purchases from India: 1. For amounts higher than 1000 USD value, you need to have an Import Export Code (IEC). Only then can you wire transfer funds. 2. With the new Goods and Services Tax (GST), it is possible for you to set off incoming Tax for your services against GST paid for your equipment purchases - something that you could not do in the past. Effectively you end up paying lesser than before in terms of customs duty and other local taxes. 3. SD has dealers appointed in India, my company being one of them - so there is no reason why you can't buy your SD products in India easily and effectively. I speak for SD and someone from SD may kindly chime in here it they feel so, but I am pretty sure that the company will not start its own online shop for many reasons. -vin

  9. Schoeps MiniCMIT

    Patrick, with apologies, a CCM41/CCM8 dont compare with a MiniCMIT. how you find it sourd or any other way is moot.
  10. Schoeps MiniCMIT

    I am SUPER confused with the way people talk about microphones and then suspensions susceptible to WIND noise. Moving a mic in a suspension on a Boom pole is not the same as WIND. Put a mic in any suspension and a foam windshield on it and then swing it around anywhere - indoors or under friggin water and say oh damn, i can hear WIND noise. maybe i am getting too old... -vin

  14. EXT Powering for MixPre3/6

    yes, since the external input will try to 'charge' the batteries. there is no way to isolate the AA batteries from the recorder physically. if there is any other way, i have not yet looked into it.
