  1. I had this happen to four of my 4063s. I wrote to dpa and they said its likley because i cleaned them too much! I used to clean them every once in a while with olive oil but now I feel it was the olive oil that made them crazy stiff. I have since bought new ones to replace the older stiff ones and have refrained from cleaning them with anything but my fingers.

    I am not talking about rental houses, sorry for the confusion. Id like to think that you would charge significantly more if you are using a cantar than an f8. It is not the same, plus you have to recuperate your investment so you charge the fair price. In the future when recorders are only 100 dollars we are going to loose a big chunk of our income. It will only be a day rate for the operator. And its all zooms fault! lol Because producers don't know the difference. It was a well kept secret, timecode used to cost so much.. That would give the pros a chance to make a living. Right now what is saving us is that there is no affordable wireless that are any good. I would not be surprised if zoom try to make some soon. And sound devices is following their lead. I guess you can call it progress, but we are the ones that end up loosing.

    I don't think its right to rent an f8 at the same rate as a 688. If a person is charging production for their equipment, it is dishonest that they charge them like they're using top of the line gear when they are not. Production is not getting what they are paying for.
  4. fakebook is just another tool manufactures have. It is a nice compliment but should not be their only source of customer contact. I think there is no responsibility for the manufacturer to reply via facebook. If you really are in an emergency the phone and email are better. However some answers are faster to find on the facebook groups than on the phone so its nice to have. Im thinking of quitting facebook actually, i hate it. The main reason I haven't is because of the sound groups I enjoy. Nothing like the original tho.. JWsound.
  5. im confident Zaxcom will get zaxnet in there. Nobody wants it more than they do I bet.
  6. Whats with the FCC tho??!! No zaxnet would be a huge blow.
  7. Thank you for sharing! amazing movie! Ima go get a CMC641.
  8. What are peoples thoughts on the matter of compression in the location sound scenario? Thank you
  9. im just really happy we are going to have something like the deva 24 soon. Deva 24 + rx12. Id rather they finish it well than give out something thats not done. Time it took to make something has no relevance once its already made. On a side note I feel there should be another serial port extra. Who nows what the future will bring? also to hook up two rx12s to the deva 24. so badass.
  10. Looks amazing! I would prefer a deva over a cantar. However I am not a fan of those deva faders.. I feel it would be hard mixing on them since they have no grooves or tips. Mixing multiple faders at once looks very challenging.
  11. I am glad you are considering mixing. It all depends on the situation. Go with what sounds best to your ears for which ever particular situation you are in. I have no problem with my mix consisting of only the boom if that is what sounds best. I will then feed lavs into the mix as needed or vice versa. To me the biggest challenge in a mix is to avoid phasing issues.. The fewer mics you have open at once the better as a general rule of thumb. You can monitor all of your tracks using your PFLs or different headphone presets, like boom on the left and lavs on the right. Also, remember that you can make things sound louder with the faders not just quieter. Trying to achieve a consistent sound across the entire scene is top advice. Also depending on what you are shooting to try and make it sound how it looks, like CrewC mentioned. To me, all of this is the difference between storytelling and just recording isos..
  12. Well it would seem that it still might be covered by the warranty. I am still in the process of contacting DPA. I think i can rule out the microdot as the problem since I have swapped microdot adaptors and the problem persists, I have also triple checked that the microdot is screwed on correctly. I also find the flexibility of the microdot very useful, however I would not be against having some hardwired 4063s. Either way its my lav of choice.
  13. It is true that it does not appear to be the actual microdot, but like you said the cable near it. It is good to hear that it can be fixed.
  14. Definitely not good.. the mic is about a year and a half old. I do not think its under warranty but it is insured so I think ill be able to replace it. However I would like to try and save it to keep it as a back up. I have already contacted DPA and waiting on their reply. I will report back on what they say.
  15. One of my beloved DPA 4063 has begun to make really loud pops when the cable at the microdot end is moved. Sounds like a bad connection somewhere even though the microdot is properly tightened and connected. I would like to try and fix it, but don't really know what could be wrong. Has anybody had any experience with this?
  16. They do have the most dynamic range on any transmitter I have used. I think that if you can't get it with zax you wont get it with any other. Maybe have a second transmitter set lower as a safety.
  17. exactly! I think this would be amazing. But it would be very expensive. And if you do not have zax wireless it would not make sense. Sound Devices take on this is the SL-6 which I think is very nice.
  18. I would love if zaxcom made an actual zaxhub so I can use the rx12 with an fp8 or a mix 8 without nomad touch.
