  1. Stelladats ran insanely hot. So I never had issue with humidity.... i had other things to worry about....
  2. 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.
  3. 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..
  4. In one video podcast i heard words of wisdom that stuck with me... Paraphrased ... Say something good about the sound you are recording- IE do not always complain or talk about all the things that are bad... I think it was Mark Weingarten... Matt Prices podcast? it resonated with me...
  5. Great! Thank you for the answer!
  6. I have a beetle. But no longer have 788t. The bts does a lot and Tonmeister is a capable system. It connects quickly and consistently. Creates very clean reports. It does take awhile to get used to but it is a complete control system for 788t. It does not have metering ... I moved away from using it as I went to a 6 series recorder...
  7. I think i got my answer from the F8/F4 group on facebook. It looks like the TC is not readable by widget for MP3 files... Anybody want to send me a test file that i try on widget? Recorded on a F8 or F4..
  8. Of course your right phil,. I forgot that as amazing wave agent is, it does not read MP3s. My transcription service happily uses widget.
  9. Quick question about zoom F series time code... Can time code from these MP3 files created by these recorders be read with wave agent or widget. Thanks.
  10. I like the option of being able to use work surface as a table that you could properly use a chair with.
  11. I found some iffy resources in Kenya a few years back. But i did meet George Andare. andaregrg@yahoo.com.au He worked as my assistant on a corporate project- he was overqualified to work as my assistant back then. Might be worth checking out.
  12. Ok- if you proceed, beware of the fan connector- mine removed it self from the motherboard with just a nudge... Good luck! My local mac service place had pity on me and took care of it... thankfully...
  13. Don't do it. Unless you have alot of experience. Many things weakly soldered. I found out hard way. I was very careful but still broke stuff.
  14. VER

    Don't give them any referrals to call either. I usually say, i can not recommend anybody "competent" to the job. Mixers own gear. we bring more than what any rate card would detail- extra units not used, backup gear, gear the client has not even thought of, a sizable vehicle to transport, ....... Everything is already discounted. I stay away for arguments that my gear is "Better"- falls on deaf ears.
  15. HI MIchael- just an FYI- Lectro can modify the Venue mainframes with a toggle switch that allows you to turn on or off the phantom power at will. No more jumpers...
