  1. Delivering files from multiple recorders

    I have 2x USB ports on my laptop. If I take a CF card from each recorder, plug them into a reader in each port, can I pick the destination folder to be on one of those two cards? Of will I need to create a destination folder on a third piece of media or on the laptop hard drive? Realistically, I would have the data transfer person on set load the program and just do this all for me, but only on long projects. On short jobs, I'd want to do it on my own.
  2. Delivering files from multiple recorders

    Hello, If I have two CF cards from two different 788T recorders, not all files will exist on both recorders. The common files will have same file name and start and end points (exact) as the machines will be linked. I will only roll two machines if there are more than 7 ISO characters and a mix, however. I don't have the setup currently to try out this demo. What exactly is the procedure to merge files from one CF to the other, or must you pick a third destination to send the files to?

    Very interesting indeed. Thanks.

    That is cool!! I now wish I still had my other 788T - although I could probably re-buy at less than I sold it for. Does it merge the metadata, like track names and such?
  5. Lectrosonics SMWB coming soon?

    Currently... this is just two separate products in one box. So great value.

    I'm a fan of analog ins. Not a a fan of connectors on the wrong side, like recorders with headphone jacks on the right when all headphone cables run on the left.

    Just a good-spirited joke :-) I am glad to see from Glenn that it's out in the wild. Although I have been a harsh critic at times of certain aspects of the Zaxcom experience, this machine looks absolutely brilliant.

    Glenn created Irma because the Deva 24 was not ready. Too soon?
  9. DPA 4017B Vs CMIT 5U

    If you've got a CMIT and are happy with it, I would stick with it. I have owned both CMITs and 4017s, but have since passed on them. The sound in virtually identical in many ways, with subtle personal differences as to what it "better". In the end I bought a pair of 8060s, which match well with my 50s, 4071a and COS11s. As noted above, you are splitting hairs when discussing the quality and performance of any of these mics. It's just down to personal preference. And also, as noted, phasing will have nothing to do with the mic, and has more to do with placement. Unless, of course, the mic has reverse phase (i.e. COS11). In which case you just flip a switch.
  10. IT (2017) Sound

    Seems exceedingly unlikely that it would be a production sound error, and as unlikely a post choice/mistake. My guess would be the theater. I experienced muddy unintelligible dialog on one of my films recently at one theater. At another it was crisp and clear, as it had been when I attended the final mix.
  11. murky dialog -- Noah Timan

    I went to the premiere of "Annabelle: Creation" at The Chinese Theatre. Home of many big "Hollywood" premieres. I had been to the mix, so knew what it was meant to sound like. The sound in the theatre was muddy, some dialog unintelligible, and some of the story-telling sound effects were nearly inaudible. I went to a regular multiplex a few days later and I sounded great. Crisp and clear. It seems The Chinese Theater has some "issue" with sound that can't be resolved due to the building's landmark status. I find that hard to believe. Such a shame too. The director looked very confused throughout as he was clearly recognizing when things were getting missed.

    You can buy them from the UK distributors - Wendy's Broadcast or Pinknoise to name a couple. They are not allowed to sell them to dealers in the US, but I don't believe the same restriction applies to individuals.
  13. DPA 4098 - first impressions

    Here's the thing. Sometimes a CUB sounds great (rarely, in my opinion). Sometimes a lav on the actor is the only way to go. I sometimes use my DPA 4011C in the center below, or an MKH50. Lavs are almost always in the visors. Every car sounds different. I bet these new Trew things are awesome a lot of the time. I didn't like the omni goose at all, but it was "fine". I expect the uniflex 4080 will be superior. But any type of shoot-out comparison really doesn't mean much. I am excited by this product, and if I have some heavy driving stuff coming up, I will likely buy 2.

    So, in short, if we want to deliver one CF card with 9+ tracks in one Wav Poly file per take, then we just need a machine with more tracks. In breathless anticipation of the new 716 or 816 (funny) from Sound Devices.
