    Zoom F8n.

    Ha nice one Samuel ! What I wouldn't mind seeing would be some syncable addition - either AES/EBU digi in-out or word clock or some other cascade/sync function. Aside from that it is just the implementation of a choice of line out as well as the current consumer line out and (I think) mic out. Always been an impressive machine for the money. Jez

    Anyone for Leeds?

    I might make it to Plasa Leeds (UK) tomorrow or Wednesday. Missed Glasgow with the snow. Anyone here planning on going? Jez Adamson (UK Film TV sound editor)

    Best Shotgun Mic for Singing Guitarist on Location

    That's interesting - I haven't used the 21 cap but I would have no real reason to think that a 41 cap would be less 'harsh'. One thing to bear in mind is that (and I think there are maybe a couple or so different 21 caps for free/diffuse field correction) an 'omni' mic (or in this case a wide Omni) is still directional on axis. One possibility is that you have a capsule which is accentuating the HF which is intended to be pointed off axis? The 8020 also has its on-axis HF response but is a free field mic. Jez

    Fair comment Chris! Note to self - pay better attention! (I'd read the first but skimmed subsequent posts...) Jez

    I'm not Constantin but I will butt in! It's funny to ask what mono dialogue film production mic might be used to record music. Wha is your end delivery format? Mono? Stereo? Personally for a stereo delivery I would tend toward an omni pair for outdoor music ..? Jez

    Nagra Stories Sound-men won’t ever tell

    Joseph I found and copied the first and fourth of those photos myself last week! The first two relate to the 1000m bathyscope descent which Stefan himself took part in - as a documentarist. The last is actually Jean Thevenot (centre) I think offering Stefan Kudelski (right) the prize of Chasseurs de Sons - Hunter of Sound. I will get back soon with more info - I had a week with friends in France who presented me with some wonderful Nagra info.

    MKH 8000 series Finish

    As a Sennheiser owner-user, Schoeps owner-user, DPA/B&K owner-user ... I have to say this ought hopefully be brought here to the attention of Sennheiser. As I've said I own first generation 8040s with no problem. And other MKH mics. I do hope we see a good resolution.

    NAB 2018 Products update

    Interesting ... but what I'd really like to see would be 2 inputs and 6 outputs (or none and six, or four and six, or six and six ... just want those extra outputs). Jez
  10. Been using them for years ... as ambience gatherers on this metro line and many others! As the clip demonstrates they sound great and at 20mV/Pa (akin to the Sennheiser MKH ranges, although not so super quiet) the 4060 has plenty of reach for most applications - including as ambient plants if needed (for which I've used them too). I really can't imagine anybody coming away disappointed from a DPA 4060 purchase. True, they're not cheap, but for what they are they are the best - and an investment for life (or at least until you eventually get careless enough to stick them somewhere REALLY stupid). Jez

    Next level on-camera microphone in M/S

    Patrick, that is so lovely - nice to see the BD1 atop the camera. No S obviously but I hope OP doesn't care about that! Jez

    And thanks Vincent!

    Sound Devices MixPre-3 vs Zoom F4

    Hey yes it was a joke - but I'm not noted for my humour (save on MS discussions) so fair enough. Actually Inari has the last laugh because I can only see the link in GIGANTIC FONT! So therefore cannot see it. But I'm still trying (because I'm damn sure it's a fine retort)! Haven't voted, but I veer towards the 'neither' - MP6 and F8 being the most obvious contenders for usefulness to me ... but that's why companies now are very happy to develope and present alternate version families of machines. Welcome to JWS and truly thanks for the write ups, Inari - I'm a big Ozu fan ... and Tanazaki ... arigato! Jez

    Sound Devices MixPre-3 vs Zoom F4

    In my experience specifying cable and connector characteristics is little use without knowing what grade solder was used. J

    SONA Dutch translation please?

    Tim, thanks, you probably answered the question for me. I guess it's a location (in Papua New Guinea) - I reckoned all the other 'non-translatable' repeated words in the listings were locations but I never thought it for SONA - partly because of it being so close to 'sound' as a word and because I'm very familiar in abbreviations ( I share a lot of FX with fellow French, Swedish and Danish editors for instance). It was never an 'issue' to know the answer for sure but assuming it's a location is good for me until I eventually need to check details with the director (who's an anthropologist). Many thanks and cheers! Jez Adamson
