  1. I'd focus on main image with mono compatible stereo placement of the MKH 50's, then add some number of the RE 50's as spot mics assuming you can multitrack and see how they are (or are not) useful in post.
  2. I don't know if iMovie has gotten any better, for a long time it continually got worse so far as what you could and couldn't do.
  3. Very sorry to hear Jeff. Rest in peace Don!
  4. Thanks for sharing these memories.
  5. I’d still like to hear about 435 versus 406 versus 416.......
  6. I have always been curious about the practical differences between the 406 and the 435. The patterns don't look terribly different in the manuals and they are both called cardioids. I have one of each, but haven't really evaluated them for relative rejection. They sound very similar on-axis.

    Earthworks Periscope?

    Yeah that's about as big a draw as exists in a phantom powered mic.
  8. Concerning the F8n, I ran mine in parallel on a webcast next to a Yamaha QL1 to check the live mixing and auto mix capabilities, and felt that in a pinch I'd have no problem doing the job entirely from the F8n. It proved more capable and easy to navigate than I'd have guessed. It's nice that it can be used in interface mode if it's easy to carry a laptop for capture and immediate editing, or just on it's own if that makes more sense. I'm sure there are competing products with similar capabilities, none I've driven myself.
  9. Have a look at my Zoom F8n sync experiments in another post here. I had a DR-701D for awhile, and an experiment I was never able to try was syncing a pair of them via HDMI. Documentation is scant, but it suggests you might get a word clock regen via that method, but maybe not to any outside world. Note I'm more of a recording studio guy who has occasionally uses LTC, rather than someone who lives in that world daily.
  10. In the world of music recording there is a common opinion that the earlier 451 models sound great, with later ones not well regarded. I believe there is a later reissue 451 also. I'm not clear on all the variants.
  11. Haven't tried Tapatalk, haven't felt the need, this site works fine on my mobile.
  12. I expect 32 bit to be useful at low levels, not really for high level gain setting. An F8n line input set to -10 gain will still clip at about -5.5dBFS with a line source, so the input stage is still the overload point rather than the converter. Running F8n on rock band instrument recordings, anything like an MKH40 or KM140 gain stages correctly set on line input at 0dB gain setting.
  13. Cool! I'm assuming that is a powered electret mic capsule, so the switch is connecting and disconnecting power from the MixPre-10t, and there's not a simple way to get power to the mic AND disconnect audio. You could change to a dynamic element. You could battery power the existing within the box, isolate the audio line to the MixPre-10t with a series capacitor, and have the on/off switch after the capacitor on the way to the MixPre-10t.
