    AATON Cantar Mini VS. Sonosax SX-R4+

    Why don’t you rent each? And test drive them?

    DPA 4098 Travel cases

    I recently got a pair of DPA 4098s. Just wanted to ask how users store/travel with these.
  3. I do a TRX 743 Transmitter on bottom of the pole with a KTek Right Angle Adapter

    Show me your bag

    No balanced outputs, only 1 set of outputs eaten up by IFB. Cant use Inputs 5&6 bc It’s 5&6 or TC input.... I liked the Idea, but in reality it’s too simple lol. Not enough Routing options. The K Tek bag just needs a bit more space. Like a space for a battery, BDS and a couple small accessories.

    Show me your bag

    I got a Mix Pre 6 rig to use as a small “tiny rig” While I like certain aspects of the rig (mainly weight) I find it a bit limiting in its feature set... same with the KTek Mixpro bag. While I like the rig and bag, it’s a bit too minimal
  6. Today I’m day playing on a show that refused to rent my kit. There was no coordintaion on gear so I just showed up with no gear. Production has a fully loaded 788 with CL8 and Lectros. Production seemed to think it was strange that I didn’t show up with a harness. I told them. You didn’t rent my kit, so I did t bring accessories. I generally dont don’t work without providing kit. But did for this just because. Out of curiosity how many other mixers bring accessories with them when Production doesn’t rent your kit?

    Zaxcom Slate

    Any update on a Zaxcom Slate? I’m interested in getting a small compact smart slate solution. It would be great to have a Zaxnet intergrated solution... I’ve heard rumors for year and wandering what’s the hold up. Even a Bluetooth enabled device that could display Zaxnet information would be killer and fairly simple. And maybe you could slide it in and out of a brace/Mount to attach sticks.

    Zaxcom RX4900 Power input

    I’m looking to power a RX4900 off of my cart. What type of power connector does the RX4900 require?

    Sound Devices Mix Pre 6 With Zax wireless

    I agree, I use the Mix Pre 6 the same way.
  12. I purchased a Sound Devices Mix Pre 6. I am primarily and before the Mix Pre 6 have been exclusively a Zaxcom user. With the small foot print of the Mix Pre 6. Im thinking about putting together a very small minimal portable rig for small interview setups. I just want something I can carry in a backpack very easily. I was originally wanting to go without a BDS to avoid the weight and cables. And just have a bunch of rechargeable Lithium AAs. I was originally planning on having 2 or 3 Zaxcom RX200s as Receivers for their Internal battery power ability. But in order to have Zaxnet/Proper TC I need an IFB or Camera Link system. So overall it makes sence to have a BDS. So I’m leaning that way. Does anyone feed a Mix Pre 6 with Timecode using a Zaxcom IFB200/CL or even QRX with IFB? And does the Mix Pre 6 unbalanced output work fine feeding a Zaxcom IFB200/CL or even QRX with IFB?

    Sound Devices Mix Pre 6 With Zax wireless

    I used the new firmware last week. Seem to be pretty solid. Are used 10 of the 20 added DB on the output. The only thing that was kind of strange I could not get the file transfer Feature to work. I had to manually pull the card to dump media. But that’s not a huge deal

    Rechargeable battery management on location

    I agree, I use powerpax battery caddy’s and if they have the + side facing up then they are ready to go. If they are - facing up then they are dead.
  15. I use the Orca OR Cart for larger productions where I don’t quite know what gear is needed.And the CineBags Revolution BackPack CB25B for gigs that are more simple/prepared.

    Smart Slate Preference

    I’m looking into getting a new smartslate. I had a TS3 for years. Interested in the Getting something more compact. But as a Zaxcom user. I’ve been waiting for a Zaxnet Slate, so I’m kind of interested in getting a smart slate that can read meta data. Im wandering what others experiences/ preferences are. Thanks!

    Smart Slate Preference

    I’ve never been asked. But since we all have metadata. It’d be nice to display it.

    Nomad resets timecode, date, time, etc. on power down

    I weirdly have the same issue
  20. While I agree and I absoultely cover scenes with the least amount of sources I can. I can’t tell you how many times when an AD sends talent to me to be wired without even asking me. And they just assume everyone needs to be wired. The main question I get asked about my kit is “How many Lavs do you have?” It’s crazy, but inexperienced poorly planned productions sees wiring talent as a quick process that allows them to do whatever they want without preparation or consideration of camera placement, light placement or even coverage... etc...

    Powering SD Mixpre 6 from Hi Q 48 WH

    I’ve tried having the Mix Pre 6 off, QRXs off, Micplexer off. Nothing seems to remedy the situation. Anyone able to power a MicPlexer 1 off of a Remote Audio 48wh Hi Q battery? The 98wh Hi Q battery powers it fine But the 48wh keeps tripping my Remote Audio BDS V4U. (I’ve swapped all cables, and have narrowed it down to the Micplexer 1) I’m trying to narrow down my troubleshooting to my specific unit (I bought the Micplexer 1 used) Thanks!

    Powering SD Mixpre 6 from Hi Q 48 WH

    I have a Mix Pre 6 Rig with a MX Powersled. With 2 Zax QRX100 (1 QIFB) and Mic Plexer 1. All powered by a Remote Audio Hi Q 48wh battery using a Remote Audio BDSv4u. Sometimes the 48wh battery powers all of them fine. Sometimes the BDS shuts down on power up. And will be able to power up within a couple minutes. Anyone have experience with this, or an easy way to remedy the problem without using the 98wh batteries?
  23. But Producers always ask to wire everyone and they are the ones paying the bills... More often than not it feels like a producer would rather have another wire than another boom.... and if you say anything regarding boom placement their response is “aren’t they wired?”
