  1. Who did you email? I haven't heard anything from our customer support about this. You can always email me directly Andrew@Deitymic.com It sounds like a lot of you hate the dual mono file aspect of mono mode. I'll have the team fix this in the V1.2 firmware update.
  2. Los Angeles - Deity Microphones is excited to announce they have signed a license agreement with Zaxcom for 5 patents. This agreement will allow Deity Microphones’ new BP-TRX units to transmit and record audio at the same time when purchased or used in the United States. The license deal covers all BP-TRX units already shipped to the USA and all new units that will be produced going forward. This means Deity Microphones will now allow USA customers to have access to the international firmware updates starting with Firmware V1.1 (released in early June 2021). Customers who have already placed pre-orders and are awaiting the shipment of their BP-TRX units can perform a firmware update on day one of ownership to unlock all the new features. “We are thrilled to have worked out an agreement with Glenn Sanders and the Zaxcom team,” Andrew Jones, brand developer of Deity Microphones said. “We are excited to showcase to our US customers the full potential the BP-TRX will have on their video shoots. It’s been a long 2-year journey designing the BP-TRX and this license agreement with Zaxcom is the cherry on top of all that hard work.” In 2005, Zaxcom released the TRX900 which was awarded a patent for the ability to transmit and record timecode laced audio. It was a world first and was recognized for a technical achievement in 2016 by the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences with an Emmy Award and in 2017 by the Motion Picture Academy. In June 2021, Deity Microphones now becomes the first brand ever to have licensed these patents from Zaxcom. About Deity Microphones: Deity Microphones launched in April of 2018 with a single microphone and a straight- forward mission: bringing professional gear to filmmakers, content creators, and videographers of all levels. They have offices in the US, Europe and Asia with a growing amount of corresponding global dealers. Fostering a creative community has been imperative to ensuring that they are designing the exact products that their customers want to see. About Zaxcom: Since 1986 Zaxcom, Inc. has been creating innovative audio technology for the feature film, television broadcast, live performance, and post-production industries.

  3. In your country yes. You can do all that from the DUO-RX. The up down keys on the DUO-RX will remotely trigger the REC features ANd in the menu you can select the transmitters and put them to a sleep mode. You can also wake them up remotely. what you are asking is currently illegal in the USA.
  4. It is a consistent 19ms. It's not based on transmission range or distance between devices. The 19ms is related to the audio buffer in the transmitter that handles retransmissions of data packets. This gives the receiver a few milliseconds to check for any packet loss, request a retransmission from the transmitter and for the transmitter to submit it so the receiver can insert the missing data before it hits the DAC and sends audio out to your recording device.
  5. For your setup that would work perfectly. We do recommend them for talent lavs but as I said before they best work for JWSound users as cameras hops because I'm assuming most members of this forum have spent $20K-40K on wireless from other brands. The max transmitter limit of 4 will prevent their usage as talent lavs for most members of JW also. But as a camera hop, not many productions run more than 4 cameras. If you are doing ENG work, small bag work, small HGTV reality shows were its a real estate agent and a couple... ya. The BP-TRX would work perfect for your use case as a talent lavalier system. If you turn off the transmission feature and use them as a pocket recorder you will get +21hrs of operation.
  6. 1) Everything is roughly the same here. We are still using latency as a way to allow for multiple retransmissions of a data packet if there is a blimp of interference to smooth over any dropped signals. Same latency modes as the rest. It will connect to "legacy gear" but we did give it a stronger ARM chip and more nanflash for firmware storage that did allow us to add a heavily modified version of our 2.4G protocol so we could do a 1 to 4 multicast. But at it's core is still the same protocol. 2) Yes and no. You wouldn't install it as a stand alone "plugin" but rather we'd upgrade your firmware to have V2.XX and we added XYZ extra features. I won't commit to noise assist but... there is onboard DSP and an ARM CPU so... there is room to grow. How much reduction would you want though? Would you really want it at the further up stage in a gain stage structure or would you rather recorder it in someone's pocket as clean as possible and add it later like in post? A lot of people don't like to do more than a gentile low cut in the field. 3) They are sitting in the our US and EU warehouses right now. Letting dealers collect pre-orders. Some regions will ship sooner than later but customers should be getting their units mid-June. 4) I'm a little confused as what you are asking here or what your pairing to what. 5) For you it might be better as a camera hop. For videographers it might work well as a single channel wireless kit one day and work as 2 audio recorders the next for a wedding. They can be what you need for the day.
  7. Correct. There is not option to scroll thru different transmitters via a single receiver. These aren't really meant to replace a sound bag but rather act as auxiliary wireless systems for users on a forum like JWSound. For users on this forum these would work best as camera hops or timecode based plant mic recorders like car rigs. Kally Williams has been using them for the past week as a camera hop on her shoots. Here is what she had to say about it. https://www.instagram.com/p/CPT6oYCJ4lH/
  8. Going live May 25th. The wait is over. 😀 It has been a long long year full of numerous delays we realize. We suffered some the silicon shortage just like everyone else who now uses complex IC chips in their products. That's not counting all the other supply chain issues we had along with the global cargo shipping shortage. With tourism airplanes no longer flying as much cargo ships have been sold out in terms of securing a slot on the boat. We also ended up going back to the drawing board and added some more features that were requested from users. We know audio pros demand the highest quality and reliability from their gear. We think on May 25th you won't be disappointed with the BP-TRX.
  9. .. but... the connector isn't any smaller than a TA connector and those lock... what is the purpose of this?
  10. The poster is a first time buyer, spending more money than he's ever spent on an audio recorder before... Go with the one with a warranty and firmware updates! The one that doesn't require you to swap out the out of date HDD with a SSD yourself because it has dual SD Card slots to manage it's backup recordings. The one that features a modern design GUI. Get the F8n because it's going to be easier and faster for you to master as your first professional recorder.
  11. Shooting the commercial for it right now.
  12. Yes, Orginally we figured we'd just make it so you could use it as a USB sound card. Something higher quality than the input on most laptops. Adding it to RX mode is possible and might be something we will be able to add to the firmware like we were about to do add to the HD-TX. Yes it does. It features a locking 3.5mm input. That's actually kinda an interesting concept. We never really thought of it like that, like a QC checking IFB to confirm audio, change settings, and trigger the recorder... That might actually be something we can roll out in Firmware 3.0 for the Deity Connect eco-system. Yes it is. And it's all 100% on purpose. We polled our dealers this past summer about how professional product sales were going and walked back the release to spend more time beta testing and making firmware revisions to features that might normally would have be given as firmware updates to the customer. Essentially about 10 people have been using the BP-TRX units for better part of 6 months, really dialing in all the bugs, features, and spec changes that needed to happen to make sure that when we release it, it will be 100% ready for the professional user. We currently are writing the manual for the production firmware. Hopefully we will be able to get them on store shelves soon.
  13. Did you turn the microphone on by holding the low cut filter down for 3 seconds?
  14. Hey all, Luckily directional antennas for 2.4Ghz devices are super small. Like the palm of your hand small. I run several and have one I will use for long range or difficult to pickup transmitters that gives me great range and punches thru walls no problem. This is a 2.4Ghz Yagi PCB antenna with a semi-rigid coax cable soldered directly to the PCB and into a SMA connector. This little guy cost a whopping $8, an an afternoon of soldering. The guy who makes them is in Dallas Texas. If you can't solder or have access to this type of coax wire, if you email Kent over at WA5VJB they can put together one for you a little extra cost. https://www.wa5vjb.com/products2.html I screw it on, point it, and i'm getting 4 out of 5 bars with a transmitter punching thru 2 walls behind the choir loft where the PA system was. I had the transmitter sitting next to a microwave, nothing fancy.
  15. I gave your files a listen. From what I can gather you're under driving your TX and pumping at your RX which is giving you horrible SNR. I had my Macbook speakers cranked and you sounded like a whisper. When I went to open your files in my DAW, both your RODELink and Deity Connect files barely registered at -30dB on the VU meter. I suspect your gain staging needs to be reworked because your coming up at least +18-25dB shy. Post up your: TX Audio settings? RX Audio Settings? RME Gain settings? Line vs Mic too Gain set in DAW?
