  1. Yamaha o1v96 with MY-DUGAN?

    Hi Philip, I've used the Dugan MY card with the LS9-16 before successfully. I would assume it's the same as on the 01V. To get it working you simply select the slot I/O as channel inserts and enable the inserts. There was no view of the Dugan control in the mixer. The card has an ethernet port you can connect to a PC with a Dugan program (free download) which will show you the gain reduction working and let you adjust the parameters. I was told you can also plug a router into the ethernet port for Ipad control. On another gig I simply inserted the card and toggled the inserts while listening to confirm the Duganization was happening, and that worked great too. Hope that helps!

  2. Rain Dates in Documentary

    Totally reasonable. Thanks Philip.
  3. How do you handle rain dates in low budget documentary? I mostly don't do sound for film of any sort but have taken on some outdoor documentary work and I'm not sure how to balance the need to make myself available in the event of rain against the need to be paid for time I'm holding. For those who do this work regularly, what is your policy on compensation for rain dates? Thanks!
  4. Interesting. I haven't read through for the specifics, but if a TV channel goes for $200K, I would fantasize about a group buy of spectrum -- between the film industry, LiveNation, the sports market, and the theatre industry, maybe we could get some UHF real estate in NYC and LA! Of course, bandwidth in those markets would probably be much more expensive. Just a wild pipedream obviously... On a more realistic note, that is encouraging news. Thanks for sharing.
  5. To the idea of scrolling controlling faders, Reaper does this and I find it really irritating when using a trackpad. Way too easy to accidentally bump a fader when attempting to scroll horizontally. I'd suggest that users who need faster, more tactile mixing (if you are mixing a real live-to-2 that matters) use BR as a tape machine along with a real console. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Re: meters. Speaking for myself, I require relatively tall meters, with scale clearly indicated. Skinny meters are great, but a dot that glows different colors is not useful for me. If I'm ever recording a truly massive channel count you can bet I'll bring a widescreen external monitor so I can see them all at once. For examples, good: RME Digicheck, Tascam X48 'big meters view', Reaper (when set up appropriately); ok: Pro Tools; ugly: Joeco Blackbox. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. No comment on the patchbay per se, as I am not a BR user. But for what it's worth, I investigated it for concert multitracking a while ago and found the monitoring facilities lacking. I would LOVE to record a 48+ channel show with BR's timecode and metadata functionality and monitor (mix and PFL or SIP) in the software without involving a hardware console. If that would be possible in the next release, I'd take a very hard look at it. For my purposes, FX would not be desired but a good onscreen mixer would make a huge difference.
