  1. I have to confess I only used the JK audio interface to receive and record the phone conversation, the latency was not a problem as we just used the sound of the phone, not the camera.
  2. If you have an 8 series Recorder, a Mix Pre or a Sonosax M2D2, you can feed the iPhone directly via the USB adapor kit. If the Lightning port is used, JK Audio has Bluetooth interfaces https://www.jkaudio.com/bluetooth-devices.htm
  3. More info next week at the Sound Summit I guess... https://thesoundsummit.org/
  4. I use both depending on the situation. For fixed interviews, I'll use the Sennheiser that has more reach and a sound less "flat". When in movement and when several persons speaks at the same time, the Schoeps is more natural and forgiving if you are not spotted perfectly. I'd say that if you have to choose only one, the Schoeps is more universal.
  5. Quite unusual, Aaton is proposing a special deal if you sell them back your 688, 644, Nomad or Deva recorder and buy a Mini or an X3.... https://www.aaton.com/newsletter/trade-special-deals-aaton-digital
  6. Definitely a 4S-TC with the special lid for large reels.
  7. True, I have experienced these problems recently. But there is a very simple, elegant and cost effective solution. Instead of a Roger basestation, simply use a Comtek or a Senny IEM, and plug the receiver in the Phonak Multimedia Hub. https://www.raycom.co.uk/product/roger-multimedia-hub/ It's a simple small transmitter that you can put in the pocket of the talent and it's feeded by a simple 3.5 mini-jack. The only 2.4 GHz part goes from the pocket to the earpiece and the total range of the system is the one of your Comtek. This transmitter cost the third of the price of the bas
  8. Hi no need for a special attenuated cable, a simple XLR3F to Lemo will work. If you put your transmitter in « 2 wires » mode, you can set the level to minus 30 and it works perfectly. I use quite often this combo and it works really well. The form factor of the MPR 52 is just perfect for small cameras, especially for a 2 channels receiver. The only little thing you should be aware of, is the battery life. You’ll definitely need the lithium-ion battery pack.
  9. Sometimes I also feel that the results are weird with an MS setup. idealy, one should use a cardioid as Mid.This would theoretically result in a perfect XY after matrix. But as soon as you use a shotgun, the phase relation between the Mid and the figure of eight will be very dependent often frequency and give these weird results. On the other hand, MS is so practical in a run and gun situation that it is often a no brainer.

    Sound Devices has just released the SL-2 for the 8 Series. https://www.sounddevices.com/product/sl-2/
  11. And for practical ORTF configuration on a boom, you should definitely check the Cinela Albert. Compatible with MKH8040 or CCM4. A must have.
  12. Looks great ! Nice interface. Thanks Jeff
  13. After a few months of work with the SD833, here are my impressions and some suggestions. This topic is meant to be completed by other users to share their experience and thoughts about this machine, knowing that folks at Sound Devices are reading. First of all, I have to say that the SD833 is a great tool. I loved the 633 and was kind of skeptical at the beginning, not seeing well what were the advantages of the upgrade. But after a while, I have to say that I am completed conviced by the advantages of the 8 series, especially now with the new plugin and developments we can see com
  14. If you want a new hardware add-on like the SL2 or the CL16, everyone will find normal to pay for it. But in the case of software, one would want to get it for free ? In both cases, engineers have to work, and be paid for it to design these plug ins or devices. If you look at Aaton, they just released a new version of the Cantar firmware with optional features : AatonMix, 600€ excl. VAT, Dante+, 300€ excl. VAT, Auxiliary mix buses, 300€ ecl. VAT DAW manufacturers use this model for decades and that’s not unfair. The good thing is that SD opens his 8 series platform to other
