  1. Searching for a splitter

    My understanding is that there is a difference between a splitter and a distribution amplifier. The splitter is usually passive and will have some transformers to isolate the signals, but little else in the way of electronics that could modify the incoming signal. A distribution amplifier will usually have active electronics inside that amplify the signal, and thus have more of an impact on the sound of the source that is going in to the unit. Not to say that a distribution amplifier won't fit the OP's needs, but there is a difference that should be acknowledged. -Mike
  2. Searching for a splitter

    No personal experience with this, but I saw this on Gotham's website: https://www.gothamsound.com/product/eight-channel-rackmount-splitter Has XLR ins and outs. -Mike
  3. So... Nothing new from SD at NAB, I guess.

    True, but none of those products have the capability to act as a USB audio interface. That’s where the MixPre series is unique and having a fader panel would make it into a killer rig for a lot of the remote sessions I do, which are often Pro Tools based. -Mike

    I want a MixPre fader panel so badly!
  5. Smart slate question

    +1 on saving the cash. As long as both camera and slate work at the same frame rate (as you say they do), there is going to be functionally no difference between using the TS-1 and any other current slate. -Mike
  6. Maybe stolen gear on ebay

    It s a surprisingly low price. The seller seems to have a decent amount of feedback though, going all the way back to 2001. Not saying thats proof of innocence, but I would expect somebody fencing stolen gear to have much less of an eBay history. -Mike
  7. Sound Devices recorders - which way to go?

    Please please please make a fader control surface for the MixPre series! -Mike
  8. Ready to work, Atlanta

    Welcome to the forum, Tim! I took a glance at your website, and it seems nicely laid out and has a nice, clean presentation. If I could offer some constructive criticism I would say to go through it again and be extra careful spellchecking and proofreading all of your content. I know this probably doesn’t bug everybody like it does me, but for me, seeing spelling errors, capitalization errors, punctuation errors, etc., on someone’s website does turn me off from wanting to work with them. Good luck! -Mike
  9. The specs for the two mics only list a 2dB difference in self noise between the mics. Depending on how accurately you matched preamp gain and your monitoring environment, I’d say that’s small enough to go unnoticed. -Mike
  10. That would be a bummer. There are plenty of 8 in/8 out (or more) usb interfaces that have no trouble getting that data over a USB-A cable, so if this is the case wouldn’t it mean that the MP10T is terribly inefficient or purposely crippled? Thanks! -Mike
  11. Does that apply even if you power the MP10T externally? I.E., can you feed the MP10T external power and connect to the computer with one USB-A cable and get all channels and functionality? Thanks! -Mike
  12. Yeah sounds like it! I love the idea of being able to remix previously recorded material too. I could see myself for example when OMB’ing low budget shorts, re-mixing the select take of a scene while they’re doing lighting setups or something for the next one, just so the editors have a great mix track to listen to. -Mike
  13. Mic Power Consumption

    +1 I’ve never actually noticed that different microphones cause different battery life when I’m using them. -Mike

    Super cool, thanks!
