  1. .. but... the connector isn't any smaller than a TA connector and those lock... what is the purpose of this?
  2. 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 The one that doesn't require you to swap out the out of date HDD with a SSD yourself because it has dual SD Card slots to manage it's backup recordings.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.
  3. Shooting the commercial for it right now.
  4. 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 De
  5. Did you turn the microphone on by holding the low cut filter down for 3 seconds?
  6. 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 WA
  7. 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?
  8. We are conducting market research to find out what we can do to improve our microphones and meet the needs of the community. We would love to have 1:1 Zoom calls with people and listen to your input on what you look for in your gear. For helping us out we want to send you one of our new 3mm lavaliers. https://www.deitymic.com/pages/feedback-sessions
  9. Lysol spray and let it air dry outdoors in sunlight
  10. Yup. Our web server crashed last week from the overwhelming traffic from V-Mic D4 DUO launch so we had to do a quick DNS transfer to a backup website. The BP-TRX is far from being cancelled. We are now deep in beta testing and actually have units currently out on a few film sets here in the US and in the Netherlands.
  11. I have been using it for the past week. Its... okay. It does not like omni-directional microphones. I have tested it with lavs and headset mics. Because of the nature of their pickup, someone standing next to you comes in too clearly to be "recognized" as noise and you will hear them on the mic still. Especially if the miked person is not talking. So the app could use a SNR threshold slider so you can dial in that setting better. It still requires good SNR in regards to your subject and background noises. It has a VERY unnatural silence to it which is fine if you are doing Twitch s
  12. We just released some new professional series lavs and a lot of people noticed the self noise of our Deity Connect system to be all but gone when using after market lavs. When using aftermarket microphones (XLR or TRS with our new HD-TX) and gain staging it properly you can now achieve about a -75dB RMS noise floor. And by adding a simple 80-100hz roll off at your recorder you can get that to -79dB RMS.
  13. Hey Codyman, it's 100% the case. The reason why you see me talking about it on the Gotham video and no one else's video is the demographic audience that Gotham speaks to is very different than most interviews I do with the press. I've attached the stereo pinout. We are hoping to have V2 firmware out this summer that will enable you to transmit to multiple receivers so that they really can be a more effective camera hop.
  14. Sadly I can't make it this year. I actually need to figure something out for it because I'd love to get a table for people to get a demo. I need to find someone I can hire for a couple of hours and send them a salesmen sampler kit and a table cloth. Know anyone? I will be in Dallas that week meeting with new dealers and a trade show there. I will say when it comes to comparing different 2.4Ghz systems (pros and cons) it seems there is some miss-information about 2.4Ghz and other systems. 1) 2.45Ghz is not the resonate frequency of water. 2.45Ghz was selected due to spac
  15. Hey Eric, I'm not sure who you mean by "he clipped on the mic", we had 6 people working at the booth so I am not sure who gave you the demo. But I know when I gave the demo to people like Glen Trew, Chris Howland, Jeff Wexler, Jose Frias, Jared Elkin, Carlos Meada, and Eric Leek we got a minimum of 25ft and in some test, we got as much as 40ft on the expo floor. And I encourage you or anyone else on this page to ask any of these sound mixers how their results were when they watched the demo. Glen Trew was playing with our shark fin antenna the whole test and checking out to see how directiona
