  1. Underwater Mics

    Was the TX floating? Wondering about signal strength.
  2. Is a new Sound Devices MixPre-10T coming soon?

    Interesting what you say about the monitoring options. 1 of the reasons I stayed away from Zoom. I did not think any SD product would have a problem with this as they are already so experienced in making recorders, mixers etc. Things aren't so much fun if you can't isolate/select what you're hearing, when you need to.
  3. Cos11 tie-clip alternates

    Worth it for this feature alone. I do Iike the standard sanken holder. It's discreet enough and well made and I have both models - its just bit boring swapping between the 2 when you have pop shield too.
  4. Cos11 tie-clip alternates

    This looks great. Is it possible to turn the holder 90 degrees?
  5. Sewing Lavs into Wardrobe

    I did a 'Body Art' show and used 1 of these to attach the lavs directly to the contributors skin :-))) Seriously though, any close up photos of how the lavs are being held with microstich fasters.
  6. ISO's vs. Mix Track

    I've played around with Dugan A.M a bit. In your experience how does it handle panning on something like 633?
  7. Stellavox AMI-48

    Is the 1 sock on / 1 sock off thing some cryptic signalling? Sorry, I like to notice such things on Sunday morning.
  8. ISO's vs. Mix Track

    Speaking about low budgeted scripted (chaotic) productions (and unscripted), split tracks with a common element (similar to as Glen Trew described) has some advantages (asides from monitoring a mix with perspective and FX alongside 1 with less BG issues). Eg. Radios on both, boom on 1, allows an editor to easily choose a 'dry' mix, a 'perspective' mix (with FX) or something in between (if they sum both). Obviously, having a boom op, BG sound, phasing and panning are variables in play. I monitor in mono and start checking the 'dry' mix if BG starts to become an issue.
  9. For those with AES O/P devices a 10 AES I/P recorder with this form factor would be sweet, no? Sonosax squeezed 4 pairs into the Mini R82 (10 years ago - albeit without faders but the size of a 411). MixPre AES-10T (with just 2 P48 channels for those oldskool moments)?
  10. Update on the upcoming Tentacle Sync-E

    The A10 system has an app. And the trend will continue. TRXs, Recorders, TC, script, sound report apps, video monitors. Who knows what next - anything now that has its own display and/or interfaces for multiple settings could go this way with the addition of a BT/Wifi chip? Eg. hardwired digital microphone settings. Aside from above we may be using our ios/android devices to do other things as well. I'd like to see a way of using the siri to do live transcription (unless someone puts this function into a recorder - and even if this happened, we'd probably need a bigger screen to read on). But of course there are limits and 1 ios device may not be enough - although this may not be such an issue if we can repurpose our older handsets, it would be interesting to know what the current technologies allow.
  11. Zoom f8 audio files overwritten

    Mm, whilst I am hardly innocence of the 'badly timed joke'...
  12. Update on the upcoming Tentacle Sync-E

    V good, tar. I have wondered how many different device apps ios could handle (is there a limit?). Androids?
  13. Zoom f8 audio files overwritten

    Marcus's 5 attempts to recover data suggest otherwise. Interviewer might have asked different questions, interviewee may have given different answers, camera may have picture for which there is no sound (always good to send scratch/BU if you can).
  14. Great insight, Thanks Tom. Can someone from Sound Devices chime in and confirm if all the pathways to formatting cards in their machines result in a "full erase format", after which the card goes back to "factory spec speed"? Thanks.
  15. MKH50, Sennheiser vs Rycote mount?

    http://www.pro-sound.com/p/k-tek-polymer-microphone-suspenders-pair-for-shock-mounts.html Can be used in most brands of elastic suspension.
