  1. Ah, thanks everyone that makes sense. So it's just that it's possible for the 788t to trip the internal fuses because it can consume too much current. Steve, how would you mod the fuses? It is something that you can just switch to a fuse of a higher value? Or remove it entirely? Thanks all! -Mike
  2. Hey all - I went into my local dealer today intending to order a Hawkwoods NP1 cup to use with my Sonosax mixer and Sound Devices 788t. When I mentioned that I was going to use it with the Sound Devices, the sales rep said that he had heard of some issues with the Hawkwoods cups and the SD 788t - that somehow the Hawkwoods wasn't compatible with Sound Devices. Does anyone here have any thoughts on this or experience either way? Thanks! -Mike
  3. Just imagine how much more stuff they could blame the soundies for if we recorded the picture too!
  4. Great sound starts at the source. Yes that means the actor/subject first but for us that also means that the microphones we use are the first way for us to get good sound. If the mics are subpar, nothing further down the line will improve the sound. So if I were you I would first and formost be looking to upgrade microphones. The 416 is a great outdoor mic - that and a good wind protection system are great choices. I would also invest in a great indoor mic too - something like the MKH50 or Schoeps CMC641. Then you'll have excellent quality mics for just about any situation. The SD633 is a great choice too, and yes, out can definitely run your 302 into it if you need more mic channels. I'd just start with the mics first and work from there. -Mike
  5. Super cool, thanks! -Mike
  6. I got the OWC kit and installed dual SSD's in my Mini. I did a clean install of OSX 10.9.5 and went from there. To do that, I downloaded the OSX installer on the old drive, and made a bootable install "disk" out of a USB flash drive. Then when I had the SSD's installed it was a simple matter to boot the computer from the flash drive and install OSX onto the SSD. Works great! -Mike
  7. Hey Simon - Just curious if there is an ETA on this - I would love one of these mounts for my 4017C - it would solve several issues.. -Mike
  8. I think it was just a crazy deal B&H offered to catch customers. Not indicative of anything happening at Sennheiser IMO. -Mike
  9. Yeah I believe the sale ended at midnight EST. Hope someone took advantage! -Mike
  10. Hey guys - If anyone was thinking of picking up a 416, B&H has a deal on them for $599 right now! Just spreading the news! -Mike
  11. I'd suspect the difference you're experiencing is more due to the advancements in the software between RX version 3 and RX version 5 than it is due to the difference between standalone and plugin formats. -Mike
  12. I agree that you'll probably have a hard time collecting, whatever it is. I also think that going after someone for an interest fee on a late payment is a quick way to lose a client. Sometimes it's worth it - if it's a client you don't care to work for anymore anyway then go for everything you can get. But if it's a client whom you have a good relationship with and whom you see yourself working with again in the future, going after someone for this will lead to some hurt feelings at the least. -Mike
  13. Hey all - I was wondering if anyone here had experience with a metalworker/metal fabrication place in the NYC area that they could recommend. I have a steel Gator rackmount drawer that I'd like to have modified a bit. Basically I believe it would involve detaching one side and re-attaching it with a hinge and latch. Maybe not too complex but I don't have the experience or the tools for the job so I'd love to leave it to a pro. I had found a couple places just by googling and reached out to them but have either received no response or a negative response. So any recommendations you guys might have would be awesome. Bonus points if they are somewhat familiar with our industry. Thanks much! -Mike
  14. I'd be curious to hear what someone from Sound Devices says about what MartintheMixer posted. After all it's all speculation until we hear from them.
  15. If it was a card glitch it seems pretty strange to me that both cards would mess up at the exact same time in the exact same way. IMHO I'd be doing some more testing to make sure there isn't another underlying issue somewhere. -Mike
