  1. Thanks for the link. Looks like a fairly slick solution. might have to demo one when I get a chance. cheers
  2. Hi all. just wondering if anyone has been using or tried the behringer x touch with sound devices 8 series. I have an 888 and am looking for fader cola control surface of sorts. Sadly, can’t really afford a cl16.... currently playing with a CL12 that a friend has lent me. would appreciate any feedback regarding x touch. cheers Mark
  3. “patience Grasshopper” is good advice I just bought an 888. currently on 411 RX. (which are still amazing after many, many years.) fervently squirrelling away money for wireless upgrade..... Very exciting times. Please push another tumbleweed out of the saloon soon. I am on the fence for a little longer.....
  4. Thanks again Karl. Please keep me updated.
  5. Hi Karl. Thanks fir following this up. it is encouraging to know that most manufacturers read comments on this site and respond. Wenare very lucky for this alone. I have indeed used the IR port on an M2T with an M2R to import scan data into wireless designer. it is very easy and fast. I guess what I am getting at is the ability to use the M2R to import scans directly to a laptop via the USB port on the M2R. This would be an excellent site survey tool where with just a laptop and an M2R you could indeed scan, import to file and coordinate at a later time. Alternatively, if you knew in advance that you would be working at a site in the future, you could prescan the site and begin coordinating in advance. is this a possibility in updated firmware or not technically possible? Is this the case with the DCR822? I am seriously considering purchasing one of these and assumed that it would be able to export scans to WD via USB. This would be an even better solution in terms of adding it to any existing antenna infrastructure to obtain site scans. Please let me know when you can. Cheers, Mark
  6. Maybe I am missing something, but it would also be cool to be able to import a scan from an M2R or a DCHR. I have connected to WD with M2R but it seems you can only update firmware. It would also be great if when you added a custom channel, you could specify another manufacturers wireless when you added the custom channel. In the same way shure’s wireless workbench does. Often I find myself working with a number of manufacturers wireless as well as other companies in site using different systems. I have used a number of frequency coordinating software programmes, but I am really liking Wireless Designer. I am not assuming any of these requests are easy, just hoping they are possible in the near future.
  7. I would take performance over slot mount any day. I would take better core performance over “Fussy gear features” any day. I am not concerned that it is 2 channel and not 4.. i still run 411s as I feel they perform best and that works best for me. Just hoping an accessory is made for rf, power and 8 series integration. That is all. Either way, if these being the 411 replacement, twice the channel count plus all new features and diversity system, I am fairly sure they will find their way into my bag.
  8. Very exciting news.... I really hope there is a plan to integrate this with SD 8 series in a similar way to slot mount and SL2. (ie antenna distro, power interface etc...) After all these years I may consider selling my 411s...... Although they are still so rock solid it would be hard to let them go.
  9. That looks great. which insert in particular? Which pouches? Would be interesting to make a mix bag frame out of this.......?
  10. Buyers market then? in my country 700 and below is still legal. lucky! There have been times when bottom end of 27 and top end of 26 has saved the day. In fact, a site surveyed and tested the previous day has been totally RF smashed by high power random spectrum testing. You cannot compete with that. Lucky once again we have access to products such as lectrosonics PDR and zaxcom recording wireless, amongst others. I am sure that the spectrum will continue to be sold off, and luckily manufacturers are evolving their products and somehow continuing to survive. The world is a large place. If you do not know what is legal in the market you live in, then you are lacking in education. If you are selling equipment then it needs to be clear what you are selling. if you purchase wireless that is legal where you work, but does not fit in the spectrum where you work, than once again, you are lacking in education. If Zaxcom, Lectrosonics, and Wisycom could all get together and have some kind of orgy, then we could all have a wide spectrum rubberised, dual mic, totally waterproof, low to high powered, tiny bendable, remote controllable, multi antenna fibre optic based digital multiplexed, rechargeable microphone system with IFB. I bought Block 28 and block 29 IFB from the US while it was still legal in my country, based on clear and available spectrum, with only a year and a half before it was no longer legal. it served my needs perfectly at the time, and when it was not viable to send it back to Lectrosonics for reblocking, I sold it overseas into a market at a fair price where it was still legal and re invested in other equipment. Be careful, know what you are buying and make sure it suits your business plan. in the meantime, I am keeping a smallish amount of gear based on the jobs I am doing now. I will sleep soundly knowing that everything I have bought and worked and sold and bought again, will be beneficial to all parties. Honest business practices and reputation is the most important.
  11. no Condoms on TX. Steve Kruger is a great guy, incredibly clever and practical. Years of high level production experience.
  12. Vintage? 1999? It's going to be hard to find a steam engine to power your microphones. It was so long ago I doubt there is any left.
  13. 3 shure sm 58 Plus a small pa for music playback. Take a split of the music and ISO the vocal mics. Treat it as recording a live gig, which it more or less is. This is essentially a live music recording of a performance, not a studio album or high end feature film?
  14. Even more relevant. Well done.
  15. *oldhat* *newhat* *redhat* *bluehat* That's catchy..... Could be a song in that.
  16. Yes Mike I do. That is why I posted it. Your point?
  17. It's good to get some help from members here. It's even better if you download the manuals first and try and find the information yourself. This may even influence your initial questions, and you are more likely to learn more.
  18. In my experience, most commentary is done on headsets, (sennheiser hmd25, hmd26, audio technica, etc) or a Coles lip ribbon. Fairly difficult to be off mic, but a fidgeting commentator will most likely find a way!
  19. I think being able to hear anything off the field in a stadium of up to 80 thousand mad screaming football fans is amazing. I am sure the sound supervisors mixing the games have plenty of experience. There is a lot more to broadcast sound than just a few microphones around a field.
  20. He forgot to mention number 4. Collecting your hard earned sandwich for payment!
  21. Sounds to me like there may not be a dialogue editor.....
  22. I think your new hat should say "WTF is my old hat"
