  1. Sonosax SX-M32

    I had one for awhile. I found the functionality of 633 blew it out of the water. It sounds great but it comes at a price, power. Very power hungry and purchased a audio GLE-12W DC-DC converter to deal with ground loops.... I wanted to pair it with my SX-R4 but it just did not complement the recorder well. Too clunky and too many cables compared to an all in one solution- 633 etc...
  2. Nagra Stories Sound-men won’t ever tell

    I had a Stelladat.. Never left me in a real crisis but it did inspire confidence either.. They had a sort of confidence monitoring that gave you a heads up when things were going south. I was way more cavalier then.. great preamps/ converters. Had a lot of NP-1s and ran two at a time. Bill Drucklieb worked on them and other machines. Not sure what happened since the demise of DAT.
  3. I am constantly switching back and forth( trying to save back trauma ) between my 633 and 688/SL-6 setup. This requires me to continually remove/install the bottom plates of my SRs. I remember seeing awhile back some pictures of some really nice bags equipped with SRs with Uni plates installed with DB-25 connectors. I would like to have made up some breakout cables for my SRs with their uni/superslot plates so that i do not have to change plates so often. Anybody here do that? Also thinking of having joeco multipin I/O cables made up as well... thanks! j
  4. Cart building day!!!

    not 8020...? Also i like the low profile antenna masts and attachment points to the cart. What hardware are you using to grab the antenna masts...? thank you for sharing- very slick cart. j
  5. Advice on sound kit R4+/SD/Zax/Zoom

    Perhaps network with other mixers and see what they are using.... always good to know who has compatibile/ backup gear in ace of disaster........
  6. Bag/Ditty for wires and transmitters

    I can not take credit of this but this is what i use for wires... http://www.basspro.com/Bass-Pro-Shops-Extreme-Medium-Worm-Binder-or-Replacement-Pages/product/12042405182739/?hvarAID=shopping_googleproductextensions This thread has a wealth of good tips.
  7. Pesky/noisy bird deterrent

    Working in lumberyard--- tons of birds nests. Of course during scout they were quiet........ And it being spring, at baby chick feeding time the chirps got really loud. Slapping pancakes worked for a bit but at a certain point the parents just got scared and pissed off so maybe the slapping of pancakes might have made things worse. It really only got much better between feedings.... or while the shooting crew was away. But with a large crew with generators and bright lights, the birds were just angry.
  8. SD 633 MP3 recording Sounds lousy

    Reload firmware and restart using factory settings. This happened to me... it took awhile to figure out but there were other anomalies as well. Limiters activating with fader closed - weird stuff.
  9. mercedes benz metris cargo

    Breaking in Metris passenger- Driving it is a dream- visibility takes a little getting used to- plenty of space. Picked it up pre-owned with residual warranty. There are alot of deals- i think because it is not a soccer-mom car. To me it is a good replacement to eurovan- However- the seats are crazy heavy and inflexible. I can load in cart vertically thru the back and Magliner follow thru the side. Wide enough for EZ to store sideways. Needs some modifications to properly secure carts but doable.
  10. Cart mixing: sit or stand?

    Started standing, then modified my PSC cart so that i can only see monitors clearly while sitting. My feet thank me. But i did like being able to see over the cart to see the set.. but i was probably too close to set already-- different problem...
  11. What do I do?

    I second purcells "Dialogue editing for motion pictures: A guide to the invisible art. ". Really enlightening. However, strongly suggest the non E-book version. Some of diagrams and screen shots are too hard to see on a tablet....
  12. DUGAN for the 633!! Firmware update 4.50!!

    Also part of update- Very happy about this. Seems like small thing but it is not High-Pass Filter now returns to last used value when toggled on and off rather than always reset to 150Hz.
  13. Stelladats ran insanely hot. So I never had issue with humidity.... i had other things to worry about....
  14. minidisc.org provided a wealth of info about this format and was resource to find sellers that would export units that were not entirely legal in the US. The page is still active today.
  15. Neurotic naysayer primadonna soundies

    Of course Mike- i was just saying that when things are going right or mostly right, sometimes it is good to recognize that fact. And not to be the dept of bad news.. Of course there are times when we have to stand our ground- hate me now, hate me later..... etc..
