    Successfully managed a year of production sound. I've been doing music recording for quite a bit longer
  1. I bought a Sonosax SX-M32 as my first field mixer and have kept hold of it for a lot of the same reasons as others have used the 302. Its advantages are that it has 3 direct outs and AES3 out
  2. That'd be nice- I've got an analogue one in ORTF (mics are back to back with swivel mounts in a rycote AE), although it doesn't get used enough to warrant going AES42. Also Rycote and/or Cinela might be worth asking as they do use the MZL connectors as part of their windshields I don't think there's a way of connecting it to the 633, unfortunately. (Might be proved wrong after automix was never going to happen)
  3. I think it did come from sennheiser, so possibly your Sennhesier distributor. Sennheiser Germany may be worth a try but I've never been directly in contact with them. I'll probably bump into John at a trade show next week so can ask him if you don't get anything from them
  4. You can do something like that with the Phonak 'Roger' earpiece and its remote
  5. Maybe, although I don't know of any that size. Another alternative is the Rode WS8, which is similar but with a fur exterior
  6. The construction's quite different (as Simon described), but it does a similar job. Also fits other manufacturer's microphones
  7. Rycote Tac!t works for me- I've got them built into my header cables The MZD8000 will take 2 mics, although the connector is special order. John Willett has (or had) one, there's a picture of it on page 2 here: http://www.taperssection.com/reference/pdf/AES - Digital Microphones - AES42 and all that.pdf Except for the wireless receivers, isn't that a Sonosax SX-R4+ ? I started wondering about that when Dugan appeared on the 688. However I expect some licensing would be involved, could it be we buy 'plugins' for recorders in future??
  8. These are out now as a production model- I've done some testing with a pre production one and they work rather well booming with MKH8050 and 8040, reducing the noise on swings, they're quite acoustically transparent and add a bit of light wind protection: http://rycote.com/microphone-windshield-shock-mount/baseball/
  9. Dredging this one out from the past... Adam, did you get anywhere with an AO-MINI? I was wondering about asking about one as a custom order
  10. The RC8+ is available and it's got a slate mic on the top right of the unit. When engaged it's routed to AES 7&8 and interrupts whatever's being used on those channels (so can be shared). There's an option to use an external slate mic on the headphone input- it's a 3.5mm TRRS jack
  11. The CMIT5U has a noticeably lower noise floor than the super cmit2u in on both processed and unprocessed channels, so would be a better choice where the processed channel wouldn't be used
  12. That just got me to look you up on google, really enjoying your music- I'm slightly surprised I hadn't come across you before from that side of things...
  13. I've also had a really good look at the metric halo lio-8 for similar reasons but at another point in the signal chain- I've found there's a noticeable difference in noise floor using the converters on my wisycom mcr42 receivers, so would be looking at splitting their signal in the lio-8 running analogue outs to the ad149 and staying digital to run to the recorder isos. I haven't bought an lio-8 yet (and found it's surprisingly big, it won't fit my current cart) and would prefer a control surface. It does offer an advantage too of being able to run playback, secondary recording and processing (i.e. Isotope for reference) as an interface
  14. 8x RX Sonosax rig, can be rigged so all analogue ins are still accessible
  15. You can always get rid of bits of it.... Actually, the bag itself is sometimes the heaviest thing
