    I have mostly done music studio work. I also do a lot of concert, orchestral, and chamber music recording. Recently I started doing more work for location sound and sound for picture. I've been thoroughly enjoying it because it takes me out of the control room!

  1. beautiful deck no doubt. the late mike spitz used to do a really nice electronic upgrade, aria i think it was called, for the ATR-104/102 etc. fantastic sounding machines. jeff hall, i hear you on the MTR90's. i'd have to say that doing punch ins and punch outs on an MTR90 is sweet and easy though! another hi-tech tape machine was the Sony APR-24. they also made the APR-5000 series which would also allow you to store tape formulation presets. i'm currently rocking a studer a80 1/4 2-track for mix downs. its quite lovely!

    Line level recorder

    i've heard files from the nagra sd and they sound fantastic. it was all using the mics however. really nice spacious 3d sound

    WTB 4 Channel Recorder for Tetrahedral Mic

    the best ambisonic capture i've done is with the sonosax sxr4+. for me its also the lightest most compact setup i've tried. sounds superb. you can gang the input gains to one pot and have a ton of head room with the 130+ dynamic range.

    Best mic for specific location

    i use a schoeps mk41 when i’m in shoots in hallways like the us government buildings. i prefer it over the cmit, cs3e, and the 4063 series lav. it also depends on the frame and overall feel of the scene. if its a tight shot the mk41 sounds the most balanced and natural. if they’re all wide shots lav is the way to go. if they’re shooting wide it makes sense anyways to have more room reverberance. i had a situation where the director wanted me to double boom (??i know...??) an interview. i had the mk41 and several other shotgun mics. the mk41 sounded the best. the softer, mellower rear lobe made it sound more natural. just my 2 cents....

    QRX200 internal PSU introduces noise

    seems strange. i do analog out on my qrx200 with no issues. going into sonosax, SD, and many other types of mixers and haven't had that issue. sounds like you contacted zaxcom about it. let us know if you found the cause.

    PSC RF Multi SR Six Pack

    That Tim Whites hinge looks sweet for the x3. Might pick one up but I'm still finishing a personal hinge which will house a similar receiver rack for zax. The Orca bag for the x3 doesnt convince me though some people like it. Kortwich has some great bags as does a canadian company up in Montreal all of which incorporate the PsC rack we're talking about.

    Show me your bag

    heres the little compact setup. this little bag packs a punch me thinks!

    MovieSlate and Sound Reports

    +1 on what JR said regarding the Cantar. I have a tiny wireless bluetooth keyboard that works well when I dont want to use my iphone. Whats really cool is the batch editing too. Simple, quick, and easy. I'll check out MovieSlate for sure though....

    best preamps in a small 2 track recorder?

    zaxcom 742/43? obviously not a full featured recorder but its definitely compact....

    Show me your bag

    Love this setup! It's always particularly interesting seeing the creative ways to bag the x3. Nicely done jaaps!

    Cantar X3 Mini

    i like to use those faders on outputs too. whats nice about them is that you can assign them to whatever input/output you want/need (for the most part)

    Sonosax SX-R4+

    more questions, is it possible to configure the front panel pots to toggle between input gain adj and mix fader? so you could do quick gain adjustments and immediately switch back to fader mixing? i wonder if an automixer is in the works for this little beast

    Sonosax SX-R4+

    StefB, Thanks for the heads up. I think I might have found an sr4+ that's local. I'll definitely keep you in mind though. So you haven't used it much? Any thoughts on experiences and stability and what not?

    Sonosax SX-R4+

    I'm seriously considering picking one of these up. How is firmware version 2.5 holding up? I'm in the US and hope that the service is good. Any thoughts would be much appreciated!

    Rain and wind protection

    Cinela Piano with the Kelly you dont get any raindrop sounds. You could always get a second one to keep swapping them out each day if you need to.....Simple, elegant, efficient...ha!
