  1. At the back of the overcover the fabric construction is tight knit, so you don't hear any of the side touching the mic. My theory is that with undercovers because it's a very loose knit and they almost break away you can hear individual threads changing position and touching the mic.
  2. If you're looking at mixers /mixing surfaces I'd say: - Aaton Cantaress / Cantarem 2 - Sonosax SX-ST / ES64 - Sound Devices CL-16 / CL-12 / CL-9
  3. So I'm presuming your plan now is to buy a ton of 6-series', maxx's and nomads'?
  4. What is happening with all these trade in deals! They are devaluing the used market way too much. With Aaton it may not make a difference, but with Sound Devices if their users can gain more money selling their old recorder they might be able to spend more on a new one (it might be the difference between a 888 and a Scorpio).
  5. Oh wow, I'm very surprised to see it gone. I thought there were already planning on shipping. Patent issues?
  6. This might be slightly controversial but I always hated the Zaxcom recorder pre-amps. It always felt so lifeless to me, this is compared to 7-Series Sound Devices, Cantar X-3 and Sonosax R4+ They are definitely quiet, but just lack something that I can't quite explain (if that makes sense). I will say that the Nova sounds better than the Nomad or Maxx though.
  7. Personally if you're truly starting I'd say buy used, but reliable. Buying cheap stuff is a waste, but i also feel that renting is an absolute waste. Have confidence in your ability and if you're super keen in this professional invest a bit. Any of following gear goes really cheap on eBay and Facebook and can make a great starter-medium kit: RECORDERS - Sound Devices 788T Recorder - Sound Devices 633 Recorder - Zaxcom Maxx Recorder WIRELESS - Zaxcom QRX100Q Receiver / 2 x TRX900LA Transmitters - Zaxcom RX900S Receiver / TRX900AA Tran
  8. Is this for 2 x MRX414's? Or 4 x 414's? 16 channels of dante, as in 8 channels primary and 8 channels secondary?
  9. What blocks are you generally using for the QRX200?
  10. Anyone know if you can output stereo audio and timecode at the same time?
  11. Sorry about that, you are correct.
  12. I haven't used the PSC RF Multi's, maybe internet wisdom, but I'm fairly sure that Glenn himself confirmed that PSC RF Multi's / any form of active antenna distribution would overload QRX's.
  13. Thanks Glenn! Out of curiosity then though why does the PSC RF Multi overload Zax Receivers?
  14. If I was to use the Micplexer 2 with 2 x Bluefin Antenna's I would be getting an additional 11db gain (3db removed for the antenna's being split). Is that too much additional gain? Or because it's a digital system it shouldn't overload it? Or should I just switch between whips and bluefins depending on the situation?
  15. Just out of curiosity, when you put it on free run does it do the same thing? I.e. 2 frames off? On the RX200 have you checked your Zaxnet settings that there isn't timecode frame offset?
