    Looking for a non audio looking bag for my MixPre 3

    i came across this and thought of this thread, probably a bit big, but looks like it has structure and nice place to carry a rycote and boom pole (if that was a requirement): https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B01N5V58P2/ref=sspa_dk_detail_0?psc=1&pd_rd_i=B01N5V58P2&pd_rd_wg=U64u2&pd_rd_r=GH5FB1XQAK0YBH90WH27&pd_rd_w=sOnUn

    SD 633 X3/X4 question

    'Input to ISO Routing' - Are your ISOs are set to 'Postfade'? I just checked on my 633, whatever option is selected in 'Input to ISO Routing' has no bearing on the X3/4 routing page. My X3/4 routing page allows: Postfade (only) from L/R and X1/2. Prefade (only) from ISO tracks. Which kind of makes sense.

    Audix SCX1 HC and Sennheiser MKH 416 Audio Sample.

    Cos if it's sound/usage is comparable to (or better than) a 416, weight/size/price/reputation will make it very attractive? I like my 416 and CS3e but the big rycotes less so. It looks like the bottom end might be better balanced for boom use than the 8xxx series and its $500 cheaper (and smaller) than an 8060. It's $850 cheaper than the 8060 with the filter module. At 104mm, with a LP XLR, it might even fit an extended BBG.

    AETA Audio Systems stops the production of 4MINX

    "4 nice preamps (Probably the best of the market in a portable device)" X3?

    AETA Audio Systems stops the production of 4MINX

    Had a look at this machine at a couple of trade shows - It had some good things going for it but support didn't look to be 1 of them - the folks representing were vague and didn't seem to be very familiar with the features. TBF, they weren't as bad as those from Roland whose disinterest in the R-88 could not be more tangible. Obviously different machines, at different prices, for different markets but a curiously similar lack of commitment by the people 'trying' to get the products out there.

    Seeking GOLD RE-20 (a la Rush . . .)

    Cheap and cheerful for a quick shot: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/High-Quality-Stretchable-Ultra-Gloss-Mirror-Gold-Chrome-Vehicle-Vinyl-Wrap-Foil/222485455376?epid=800967002&hash=item33cd2aa210:g:BP0AAOSwtZJY~J4- Maybe this for a close-up and/or longer lasting finish: http://goldgenieworld.goldgenie.com/
  8. I don't have any of these machines but the the sections of the manual you've included in your post suggest to me the following (and your understanding is correct): ~ 'Remix' to remix original ISO's to recorder outputs (Tascam dr-680 can do this and is quite useful for previewing 'something different' with the ISO tracks). ~ 'Re-record' to record the remix as a separate file (with an 'R_' prefix). 'Remix' needs to be enabled to allow Re-recording.

    Best small format recorders for planting

    Saramonic SR-VRM1, I tried 1 out: horrible. I tried it for precisely the reason IF included it - phantom powering. Sound was ok, but the menu was poor and the XLR doesn't lock well or at all so a jumper lead is required for use with some mics. It's available if anyone's interested - used once, still boxed etc etc :-) The ultimate SF recorder is: ~ Easy to configure with menu and/or app. ~ Phantom powering and 'plug-in' power. ~ Dual level mono recording. ~ Balance mono / unbalanced mono/stereo I/P and O/P. ~ Mic/line I/P and O/P. ~ Wifi/BT transport control, metering and QC audio. ~ 12 hour built in battery (AAs are too big now). ~ Headphone O/P. ~ Built in mic (for stand alone use in pocket etc) but not some BS XY stereo array designed by the marketing department, a single, DPA quality cap would do :-). ~ I don't mind if has a (recessed) multipin connector like a 6 pin lemo / TA5 to get all signals in and out of 1 plug (I'd rather pay the cable guys than the lawyers :-). ~ 1/8" female thread. ~ Form factor of small belt pack TX eg. SSM. ~ TC would be gravy.
  10. Curious to know how the re-mix function works while mix-pre is in 'interface mode'. Software dependent I suppose - is it possible to view wav forms (on computer screen) of isos while re-mixing them?

    Sound Devices Wireless (rebranded Audio Ltd)

    "I think the author of the article may have got his wires crossed. " He should have gone wireless.
  12. OT, but under the premise of 'disruptive' (and I don't mean the noisy gimbal), I wonder if someone, somewhere is close to reinventing the audio boom pole: https://shop.redrockmicro.com/product/digiboom-single/

    Induction Kitchen Nightmare

    Good to know. IIRC, my mid range sennheiser RMs were sensitive to the cauterising, the cheap Sony UWPs (i had as back up) worked fine.
