    Been involved with recording sound since the 80's. In the 90's I lived in Palo Alto, CA and worked at Opcode Systems in the R&D dept. I've taught at the University of Louisiana Lafayette and got in this side of the biz by accident.

  1. Jeff you are correct.. The Papi is a small preamp with limiter that's externally powered.. This is a Phantom Power only unit powered by 4-AAA batteries. The Papi is much smaller
  2. Sorry for the blurry pic. Little something on the way from Mozegear.. Arrived at lunch Friday and thanks to a last minute change with the B-Cam got to try this phantom unit out as a plant...Worked great with zero coloration of the sound.. Not sure when it will arrive to market..Will easily velcro with SMQV..
  3. here's my settings Menu 99- 2 Speed (Up to max) Menu 100 Max speed Multiplier - 3 Just my preference and my cl was an early model
  4. The Hirose connector is for external power. The battery can be thought of like the 788 internal TC battery. We are testing with F55 and had no issues. I know other variants are in the works....
  5. Hey guys, Seeing all the announcements of new sync boxes... Having the pleasure to give this little and I mean "TINY" sync box a go from Mozegear.. Basically the size of a 9v... This version has a 4hr internal rechargeable battery with 4 pin hirose for power.. Same accurate clock as the TIG and Q28.. Running with Sony F55's and ZERO issues on sync... Steadycam guys love it! I know they are cooking up a few other things and hope they will have more to say at NAB.. Wish I could go... Pretty sure it also can do Lemo instead of BNC....
  6. Thanks Glenn... Like the lower Latency too!
  7. Is run time affected by the internal recorder and does the display dim after "x" time??
  8. Didn't watch the entire video, is there an estimation of battery run time after full charge?
  9. Last show I worked that was shot on 35mm Film was for a TV show. I ran 48048 at 24fps no problems....
  10. Robert, One thing to keep in mind is Latency between units, this will cause a lot of phasing issues. I used my 664 for extra ISO tracks and feed mix into 788t.. Few mill delay going out the 664 digital so switched to Analog out and that helped. At the time Output limiters on 664 were rough.. Currently my extra tracks rig is a Firewire interface with Boom Recorder timecode locked with 788t. I use a Midi Control surface to interface with MOTU Cuemix on Interface. Latency there also but about on par with 664. This will work for me until I can afford the X3 or see what Sound Devices might do. I haven't had to use the extended tracks rig in a while and have also considered picking up a 2nd 788t and connect them together.. Guys dumping them cheap these days..
  11. Robert, FWIW.. Not having gain control on CL12 is deal breaker for me.. 668 is a solid unit, love my 664 but not having fine gain control AND not having those extra DB before clipping has me waiting to see if SD does something above 788t or Wait for new Cantar X3 controller they are working on..
  12. If it's a large crowd scene I will normally just roll between takes and ask boom op to get the pole high and point away from direct conversations.. Works great.. Usually can get a solid 30-40 second segments without AD's blaring away.. All told usually will roll for 4-5 minutes.. Make a note, tell the scripty and Post can usually do some damage with that..
  13. 20 inches wide so no SKB case for it.. There may be a setting to turn off the motorized faders not sure.. You will have to try the Gain thing yourself, but it was a long move if you wanted to keep your hand on a fader and adjust.. Its not like the Nomad, touching a fader didn't select a channel. You have to Press the "Sel" button for channel then reach across to the data input knob.. I love a gain knob per channel, it's just the way I like to work which also rules out a CL12 for my 664...
  14. Just saw one at local music store.. 3 things... 1. Very wide.. 2. The motorized faders did not have a smooth movement.. Almost jerky. 3. BIG ONE.. No gain knob per channel. You have to hit a select button then turn a data knob and the display is not very big..
  15. Had a car scene with music playback. I now use this Dell Venue 8 tablet running Windows 10 with Reaper.. Works great and have full fledged DAW in a compact format.. This was connected to a Senn G2 system sending signal to Jeep we were towing.. No timecode from Playback as sync wasn't critical but if timecode was need a stereo split cable would make it easy..
