  1. sd 664, time code duration, it reset to zero

    yes, but sounded strange to me it would have reset to zero.
  2. How long should last the correct time code after I turned off?, the blue led keep blinking for 3 hours but if I switch it on I see the time code is reset to 0. is this normal?
  3. Thank you so much for your exhaustive reply
  4. I rented once 3 small ambient boxes, the radio link, very immediate and simple to use, I worked with one tx and 2 Rx on 2 cameras, I see that it has been dismissed, from what has been replaced? what else besides Ambient you can choose? I heard something about to send time code and scratch audio to a camera? which product has these 2 facilities in same box?
  5. I am a sound mixer located in Naples Italy and available all over the country, feel free to contact me if needed.
  6. I'll try to be more detailed, I have rented many times the ambient radio link, quite simple and immediate, it is possible to set it as receiver or transmitter, it doesn't generate time code but just transmit it wirelessly from my sound devices to 1 or more cameras. Now the last update is that soon I' ll be doing some work with a production company and they own the ambient lockit, I have seen many videos from ambient but never seen the essential way to set it. Does it generate time code? so my sound devices will have to jam as a slave to it like all cameras? I guess they will have a master lockit and tiny lockit, does the master lockit work as a stand-alone tool and the tiny lockit wired to the cameras and mixer recorder? please if anyone of you that daily use it could explain me this would help me a lot.
  7. Solderable BNC

    how to solder a bnc on this https://it.aliexpress.com/item/LEMO-FGG-0B-5-pin-Male-Plug-Connector-5pin-to-Flying-Leads-Cable-for-Teradek-Bond/32840904979.html?spm=a2g0y.10010108.1000016.1.7e7f5070CjkkSn&isOrigTitle=true
  8. The question is, in this typical scenario where I have to sync one sound devices 664 and 1 or 2 pro cameras in documentaries and tv shows, a time code radio link like this TC-TRXforFAM.png can accomplish the goal? Since I am going to invest some money I want just to make the right purchase, I have seen some video of ambient lockit acl 204, and there is a dozen of other products, I am very happy to accept any your advice.
  9. there was more questions, what has replaced the Ambient radio link? (TC-TRXforFAM.png) is there something similar to it ? is it the Ambient nano kit? is someone using it does it require a tx and rx or it can be used also as single tool to jam to, mixer recorder and camera at once? Thanks, Costantin, The zaxcom is amazing but I am on a budget and so I'll keep using be a ew100 g2 system to send a scratch audio
  10. has anyone done a comparison A-B between these 2 systems? distance range and power of the transmitter, sound etc with same lavalier (sanken cos 11 or any other)?
  11. I just purchased used sound devices 664 and was wondering if a SanDisk extreme pro 64 GB is worth the extra money compared the SanDisk extreme, the speed writing is almost the same, what else requirement (in addition the commercial) is really important to consider?
  12. yes I tested it on a usb3 based card reader and it was ok.
  13. I am testing a brand new Sandisk extreme pro 64 GB, I put in sd reader inside my mac book pro, and black magic gives just 18 MBs, my mac is a mbp 2009, the sd reader is usb2 bus based, so I should get at least a higher speed rate than 18. whats wrong.
  14. sandisk extreme pro vs extreme

    i tested the new sandisk extreme pro with blackmagic, it gives only 18mbs, what is happening
  15. sandisk extreme pro vs extreme

    I bought this https://www.amazon.it/gp/product/B00Q4X8OI2/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 and this https://www.amazon.it/gp/product/B01J5RHD58/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 both included in the Sound devices media list
  16. sandisk extreme pro vs extreme

    extreme and extreme pro are both on the approved list
  17. what is the fastest and easy way to sync a sd664 to 2 cameras? can I do it easily without locket, i will have a complex kit on the shoulder and want to avoid other boxes if possibile, and honestly i am not very used to sync issue in general on film set. What is the basic work flow. I don't know yet if they will have a digital slate, what I know is they want a scratch audio on both camera and audio synced to them and want time code as TIME OF THE DAY , an assistant editor told me by phone that in past they used to jam at beginning of day and go. I am just afraid that with 2 cameras is going to be more complicated then that. What setting I have to make before to jam. setting time code as free run , setting same fps of cameras, and just jamming with both cameras,. I apologize for the confused question.
  18. I need to use my FOSTEX PD 6 to feed a MIX to camera, and want TO do it via the HIROSE stereo bus out/in, my question is related how it is wired internally . If you see the fostex scheme the hirose is wired like the image describes, but the standard HIROSE -XLR'S CABLE IS wired like the second pic, but it is on some web site sold as for fostex pd6 too, ho can help me please? has anyone of you used that cable?
  19. the wiring issue is only about the Y cable, while the extension (hirose m to hirose f) can be just wired symmetrically right? 1 - 1, 2 - 2, 3 - 3, 4 - 4 ...... 10-10
  20. I NEED TO FEED 2 xlr inputs of a camera from my pd6 (stereo buss) via hirose and return from camera (headphone) with a trs in stereo in on my pd6). seems that the cable made for the alpha mix can work fine.
  21. http://www.trewaudio.com/store/product.php?productid=106&cat=13&page=1 grew audio declares that that cable is for all that devices, but they just mean the hirose connector, what happen if it does not work?
  22. but sammy did? anyway there is any chance to find a cable for pd6?
  23. john you mean that you have used same cable purchased for 442 on the pd6?
  24. thats the point, I should buy TWO cables if i want to use it with a fostex pd 6 and with a 552 sd mixer, this is crazy.
