Dave posted a topic in EquipmentHi all, Stumbled on this on YouTube - not my clip. Just curious about your thoughts on this clip using 2 DPA 4060 lavs as ambience gathering mics. Am I hearing slight phasing? How much reach can these sub-miniature mics get in order to produce useful recordings? Hope to experiment with a 4060 or 4061 as a plant mic. Thanks for your thoughts, as always :-) Cheers, Dave
I was selling my Sanken CS3 (not e) since I've heard the e improved upon the noise floor and thus the cs3 was noiser. Then I tested my friend's Sennheiser MK66 and it was also noisy within the same setup. Thus I think it's my setup instead. Could someone help pinpoint what could be the issue? Sanken CS3 to Mix Pre D via XLR AES from Mix Pre D to Digital In of Marantz 661 i've tried different xlr cables also.
hi, i'm going to contact sound devices on monday, but i just wanted to find out from you guys about the problem with using rechargeable AA's in the mixpre with the tube being too narrow and/or the end cap not picking up power. i've read posts where the batteries get stuck inside & the cap connector not making proper contact. i've also read that people sent them into sound devices to get modified at a cost of 80 to 100$. do the newer manufactured ones (just before the release of the mixpre-d) have those problems fixed or not? i wonder if at a certain serial number this problem was rectified by sound devices. i would appreciate if anyone who can shed a light. i'm trying to find a used model and would like to know if i need to search for a particular serial or date of manufacture. cheers, P.
