    I'll message you privately
  3. I need some used sound equipment

    I don't think it's that crazy if you have proper gain levels on the cameras, h4n and on your mixer's outputs. If I understood correctly you can use the h4n as a backup. You have three sets of master outs in the 442 so it depends how you are connecting to the cameras and the h4n. You have the XLR, TA-3 and the Hirose multi pin outs so all you need to do is choose the proper output level and the ouputs you want to use, probably all line-level. You also have the tape out and mono mic out. For example it would go like this: Cameras: 4 mics ---> 442 in ---> mics 1/2 pan L and mics 3/4 pan R ---> 442 XLR outs ---> 442 L goes to camera 1 and 442 R goes to camera 2 H4n: 4 mics ---> 442 in ---> mics 1/2 pan L and mics 3/4 pan R ---> 442 TA-3 outs ---> 442 L goes to H4n L and 442 R goes to H4n R Cheers, Diego

    @cstauffer have you heard back from Tyler? My iphone just warned me about the same thing. Great app!
  6. AVID S3 controller has a stuck fader?

    Try testing the faders using the utility mode in the S3. Here's how to do it: http://avid.force.com/pkb/articles/en_US/how_to/S3-Utility-Test-Mode If that doesn't work the fader might need to get replaced but it's a common problem on icon boards as well
  7. Determining drift between two recorders

    Thanks for all your advice
  8. Removing Panavision 35mm mechanical sound?

    If the performances are really good you could just leave it in. Sometimes the processing can take away from the performance. There's a great scene in The Ides of March where George Clooney and Ryan Gosling are talking in the back of a restaurant really quietly and menacing. During the whole scene you can hear the camera rolling if you're paying attention to that sort of thing. Most people never notice that kind of sound since it is so consistent. I'm sure there's more examples out there.
  9. Determining drift between two recorders

    @Wandering Ear Yeah, I think manually seems to be the only option since the drift is not consistent. @Philip Perkins I used all 4 tracks of the 744, this would be a 3rd pair that I want to sync. How would you guys test the drift? I was thinking of making a long (~4 hour) test file with beeps every 1 minute in pt and then record that into the 744 and D100 to check how much drift there is. Would this be a good test or would you recommend another way?
  10. Hello everyone, I have some wildlife recordings that are between 6 to 9 hours in length (divided in ~40-60 minute continuous segments). I used my SD744 and threw in a Sony D100 to get an additional perspective. I did a finger snap at the beginning and end of the night to try and get them synced although I was aware it was very likely the D100 would drift out of sync from the 744 and that some post processing would be needed. The D100 has no timecode and the 744 was set at 23.98 in case that matters. I would like to determine what kind of drift the D100 has and would like to get some ideas on how you would do it. Also if you have ideas on how would you get both recordings synced throughout. From what I see in Pro Tools the drift might not be consistent all the time. Let me know your thoughts and if there is anything else I should add. Thanks!

    Awesome! Thanks guys, I'll contact you directly
  12. Yosemite Installer

    Thanks pindrop, I tried downloading the 10.10.5 combo update but it requires a 10.10 install to work. If you take the full installer out of the Applications folder before updating, it will not be deleted after updating, hoping someone did that and can send me the installer. I use Pro Tools 11 most of the time but will start testing 12, I really like to be able to prepare i/o setups without having interfaces connected.
  13. Yosemite Installer

    Hi all, Anyone have the OS X 10.10 installer? I need to upgrade a 10.8 computer with Pro Tools but I don't want to jump all the way to El Capitan. Your help would be really appreciated. Thanks!

    Thank you Constantin, couldn't have said it better.
  15. Booming with a Neumann KU100 head

    Thanks Constantin, good thinking. I found a couple of stores that might have something like it. Thanks Pablo, using one of those as well but I'm still being asked to use the dummy head.
