  1. mongo hp amp - can't find info - got any leads? manufacturers website perhaps, dah. https://www.mozegear.com/mongo
  2. Could be a low profile way to record stereo atmos's on an ios device. At €1100 (for a double lav kit) not particularly cheap especially if you factor in the cost of the ios device but a DPA 4060 is a DPA 4060. That said, i think i'd rather go with OKM binaurals and a handheld recorder (and some of the tascams allow for easy transfer to an iphone).
  3. Horribly unprofessional of me to suggest this but as this Cine-Tape device is working with sound (in the audible range of our mics), it would be interesting to see if it could be sabotaged by recording the emissions and playing them back in a calculated way. Obviously neither the original emissions or the 'fake' ones would be of much help to the sound department in the moment but in the long run if the device gives the wrong read out it would be of no use to anyone. Was there not an infra-red equivalent of this thing which was synchronised with the camera shutter (to not damage the acquisition)? May be this only worked with film cameras (as opposed to digital)?
  4. Gosh, 100 x 10 hours of un monitored audio from 1 day! I've heard of a production like this and it's still in post 6 years after they finished filming. Joking aside, nice size for body worn recorder.
  5. Great form factor for a plug-on TX, kind of reminds me of something else. Most plug-ons have a way of tightening up against the XLR of the mic. I'm guessing this 1 is so light it doesn't need it?
  6. Finally: http://www.sounddevices.com/news/sound-devices-news/new-wingman-app-for-the-6-series-debuts-at-ibc Is the WM-Connect accessory different from the usual wifi bluetooth dongle?
  7. No apologies needed Simon, I really appreciate the sharing of the video. Please excuse me for making anything of the 'orientation', it was a childish excuse for extraneous banter. Very much looking forward to hearing/reading/seeing more of this wonderful looking Radio system. Kish should be very proud, so many years of hard work developing these products for our market.
  8. Yes, but it'll cost you another $185 because the sand is special acoustic sand.
  9. The display flips like last 1 iirc. Incredible switching BW. I notice the display show TX temp - nice touch. What's the power usage like compared to other dual RX (digital or analogue, eg Wisycom, Lectro, Sennheiser 6042 and Zaxcom). Re 'portrait' mode for video. I imagine the hours of video shot like this and on youtube is now an equivalent to all the moving picture material shot in 'landscape' in the years before camera phones and fortunately this vid is short enough not to induce neck strain (but only just ;- )
  10. At least you know how much to put down on the 'lost and damaged' form when your DIY 1 goes missing on the grips truck.
  11. Any idea of cost?
  12. Those Peli style cases cost near nothing to make but by putting this mic the manufacturers have conferred a quality to the item your 'tear down' clearly demonstrates the mic doesn't deserve. Perhaps they meant to say the case was waterproof and not the mic ;- )
  13. Your NP1 almost certainly has a circuit to stop it from being overly discharged (and damaged).
  14. Yeah, but it would be easier to facilitate a DSLR workflow using TC or scratch audio if the TC box at least passed audio or had a built in mic. These days some projects go through various scales of post, including quick, on set edits for social media (where an audio scratch for sync may be more viable than a TC solution) and inclusion in to large scale projects later, where a double system without correctly time stamped media would make things very laborious. But, to be fair this is only an issue for camera's with both audio I/Ps on 1 connector. Eg the minijack on a DSLR. CurrentIy I would settle for a something simple which would let me 'squirt' a second or 2 TC at the beginning of each take into the single channel wireless camera hop I use with my DSLR clients in lieu of a box sending TC and audio (ERX).
  15. But with the right amount of TC bleed into the audio track, you can have 2 ways of syncing and less chance of the wrong audio making into broadcast ;- )
  16. The only thing for me the zoom has over the mixpre3/6 is balanced O/Ps but I think a lot users are not going to want to carry a camera snake that weighs the same or more than the recorder (it'll be like a tail waggling the dog :-). 1 of the best recorders for ganging channels in this price range is still the DR680 but SD are going to clean up with these devices. The mp6 has more mic pres and analogue limiters than a 633 which is food for thought if you don't need to send a balanced mix to camera.
  17. When you say "improves the directionality" does this not really mean an increases off axis rejection? IMHO, 1 is the function of the other and the rubber 'flange' of a softy is going to attenuate some of the pressure waves arriving at the back of the mic. "generally improves the sound of the mic" is potentially a bit subjective and based on the context of use but the 416 does have a bit of a 'knee' (bump) c. 10khz, partly to compensate for being in a some kind of wind jammer (which will reduce the HF getting to the mic) and could be expected to be a normal context of use. I've not read this anywhere so this should be considered conjecture.
  18. I knew the moment you posted there would mention of 'T' power. I'm beginning to think this is what the 'Teas' in 'The Immoral Mr Teas' is really about as opposed to a fondness for Russ Meyer and hot drinks from the PRC ;- ) I'm curious to know what was the latest product to market with 'T' power. If it was over 10 years ago I think you and I should hold a memorial service for this venerated mic powering over some beers, with Nick in the Wenlock. I'm thinking it's an SQN 5s which was launched 2006 but I'm sure I will corrected on this, in which case we should celebrate and drink to the good health of this venerated mic powering over some beers, with Nick in the Wenlock.
  19. Like the CAD modelling of the reflection on the connectors. Are tentacle/mozegear/betso about to loose some lunch? I still want this: http://www.lebel-audio.com/index.php/en/products
  20. Personally I prefer to use XLR, but it is possible to make a quite low profile RA TRS and because the connector can rotate it's 'self orientating'™. Interesting they only put combos on the mixpre-6 and not the 3.
  21. allen key and spare grub screw holder on board?
  22. and i did wonder if something like this was round the corner when they gave 633 dugan automix. I like the integrated blue tooth. not sure what's meant by 4 or 8 AAs but I guess I'll find out soon enough. Is SD's movement into this end of the market indicative of where our part of an industry is going? mixpre 6 half the weight of 633! And the USB streaming feature is a really nice touch for expanding the capability of the device.
  23. looks great.
  24. I think Audio Ltd's 1010 digital radio mic system (with TX recorder*) and now with slot-in dual RX and 100mhz switching BW would be a very interesting option for EU based operators looking to spend this kind of money. In terms of versatility you'd have put the Wisycom RX into the mix because it can be used various brands of TX. Also I don't get the impression Sennheiser is chasing after anyone else's products, concepts or sales. When you look at the quality of the systems and how long they support them I think Sennheiser is all about long term strategies and bigger markets than this 1. Eg. G3, 2000, 3000, 5000, 6000, 9000 series (and they have more wireless still and ALL there other stuff!).
