  1. Personal taste. I always use an external cable for that kind of shoots. It's 5 meters long an about half of it is fixed on the bag with a velcro. If I have to use boom's full length, I simply release the velcro. That works really quickly. I can exchange the cable easily when something's wrong and I can switch quickly to overhead miking (talking head Interviews).
  2. The ultimate survival tool for bad DJ's. "The music's so bad I shoot your speakers!" Seriously, that volt meter is a very very good idea, especially for location work.
  3. Now we've been waiting for the Nomad "Black Edition"
  4. Same experience with a wireless hop (old Sennheiser 5000 stuff): Some returns are clean, some dirty. Especially when camera is recording, there is some periodical beep sometimes. I couldn't figure out yet when it appears but think it depends on the model - maybe some FS7's are ok, some not.
  5. Ambient UMP 2 is perfect: light, small and draws little power. But difficult to mount.
  6. No doubt of course, especially an internally recorded file. It may be more significant when listening to the outputs: 633: A/D + D/A. 664: all analogue.
  7. As a regular user of 633 and 664 I experienced a more "analogue" sound on the 664 in contrast to that "digital" 633 (which has a digital signal processing like the 688). The 664 sounds a little warmer, forgiving, the limiters more smooth in my ears, while the 633 is a little harsh sometimes but clean and direct. But I won't judge which is better, it depends on the sounds, the voices, the mikes used. Like the difference of - let's say Sennheiser 5000 series to Lectro Hybrid.
  8. Same. Using it with Ipad mini 2 and sometimes it just freezes. Record continues, nothing serious happens. I quit the app with the double home button and "push" it away, then start again. Takes only a few seconds. I hope SD will fix this in the future.
  9. Yes, there are thousands of 2000 / 3000 / 5000 and EW SK's and SKM's around, looking for a modern receiver. Tried it out. The EK 6042 does emulate those companders perfectly - even vintage transmitters like the SK50 (still in service) sound better than ever. Very good filters, quick button response, still not enough AF output level for use on LINE inputs though. That programming tool works with internet browser, while the EK is connected and powered via USB to the computer. Ideal to service a big number of EK's.
  10. Impressive! Those carpenters must have been great.
  11. Did that dolly really roll on a wooden boardwalk? How did this sound?
  12. Sony TCD-D7 Consumer DAT recorder. Actually bought it when I was in school and only used it for student projects. Used it as a walkman too, best sounding walkman of all times :-)
  13. interesting to hear & see this working! A large printed out MIDI file.
  14. Highly recommend the IRig Pro. The difference to IRig Pre is that the A/D converter is built in, so you can achieve much better audio performance 24/48. So it's more or less a sound Carl for the phone. Also you can set levels manually with a poti. When the green light switches to yellow, you have reached -10 dBFS. It is connected via Lightning. I used it successfully with a SD 664 with output set to -10. So a wireless "hop" would also work.
  15. PSC has been redesigning the six pack to make the Sennheiser EK6042 fit in. A new version will be released in about two months. Maybe with some other improvements...
