    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. i think a lot of the SD stuff is fantastic but is generally built for dialogue. it was one of my frustrations with previous SD recorders i owned. i think having input trim linking is a major step in the right direction. i assume you can link as many input trims as you want with the 8 series. but haven’t used any of the 8 series/scorpio so i don’t know for sure.; i think it would be really cool if SD did something like the cantar x3 where, on top of having input linking, you can have fader 1 control the fader level for the M channel while fader 2 controls only the side channel. this way you can control the ms signal that goes to the mix track and still have a discrete ms signal to hand over to post. the sx-r4+ has easy input linking and you can achieve more mixing if you add the rotary fader box or the linear fader panel. it sounds beyond great for stereo and ambisonic capture.
  2. I would contact the company/pilot and request info on what type of comm system they are running so you can have the right connectors to tap into. I always do this to make sure. Then I just order the right connector and make up a cable. By now I have a bunch that I’ve made over the years. Like mentioned above, the gating system is a pain and unnatural so having an ambience mic will be good. As far as you not being in there, its going to be productions gamble. That being said, if you’re recording at 24bits you could record pretty low levels and hope for the best.
  3. Haven’t spent much time on these consoles or tape machines. I’ve been told they’re ok. Sage Electronics up in Toronto makes two flavours of op amps that area faster and more articulate and apparently it makes a big difference. The Mara machines I’ve heard are nice too. Again, never worked on one, this is just word of mouth from other engineers. I wonder how they compare to the ATR Aria electronics that the late Mike Spitz came up with for the old Ampex ATR-1xx series. I can’t imagine paying 8-15k for one of these nowadays. Per the tape counter, I’ve never encountered an accurate counter on any tape machines. For multi track sessions I always stripe/d the reel with TC on track 24 to have an accurate time readout. Lots of MCI desks out and about. People do love them! Thanks for sharing!
  4. i’d love to cut some tracks on this thing. this is just right after (or there abouts) when some sound engineers wore those white lab scientist robes. its not all numbers. i’m sure these consoles sound amazing. looking up a schematic now. I believe there are kits to put together the redd3.7 mic amp....
  5. Thats a sweet rig. I’ll see what I can dig up thats cool. Either a mic or a limiter, hmm, which one should I put up on here🤨
  6. Is tjat a BCM2 type mixer? They look so sweet, always wanted one because of the awesome routing abilities. Reminds me so much of working with the Angela desk. Really hard to service and work on though haha
  7. I believe most of them can run on 10v-16v and use about 6watts. the sifam analog meters dont require any power if you decide not to power the lamps
  8. also recommend the dorrough meters. or if you want some VU peak meters, sifam also makes different kinds that you can rack up
  9. Looks pretty amazing!
  10. the 256gb ExtremePro Sandisc cards are rock solid so far.
  11. Hey all, thanks for all the responses. I do have a bunch of chargers for batteries recorders and such. I’ll give those a try if they have the output amp capacity. I just wanted to ask before going on an plugging things in and blowing fuses or something. In the end a power supply is a power supply....
  12. Shastapete, I should’ve been more specific. This is for cart power, not bag use. Constantin, I’ll check out RAs Lifebox. I have a block battery that gets me through the day. I have a small simole and compact cart that is not super power hungry but still has a decent power draw. I’m just wondering of a way to use my audio root BDS (since it has a hirose power input) with AC power. I guess I just like to have options just in case. I’m just wondering if theres any other people out there feeding the audioroot BDS from an AC power source and how they go about it.
  13. Hi all, I use an Audioroot BDS that has a hirose input. Most of the time I power off of my block battery since I get long run times. There are a lot of times where I would love to tap off of available AC power. What are people using to AC power their Audioroot BDSs? I was thinking something like this: https://www.coreswx.com/store.coreswx/product/cube-200/ combined with some sort of UPS or something.... -i
  14. I just got the Nova about two weeks ago. When it first arrived I didn't have any CF cards that were the recommended size, so I used some Sandisc Extreme Pro 256GB that I have and use with one of my cameras. I installed two of them for the Primary and Mirror slots and started using them. In the meantime I ordered some more 'normal' sized audio cards in the 32GB-64GB vicinity but have not installed them. Still running the 256's with no problems. At first I did record tests using 6-tracks and recording at different intervals. I let it go for 20mins, then another take for 40mins, then 60mins, and then 1.5 hrs. There were no issues so I figured they're ok running it. Then I went on a job where we had one take that was 3.5hrs with 8 tracks and it went by very smoothly. No issues whatsoever. When I did first format the primary card it told me it was going to be 30 minutes which I thought was insane. This is my first Zaxcom recorder and all of my other recorders format cards pretty quickly. After it finished it was fine. The mirror card formats much quicker. I kinda like the bigger cards. No issues yet.
