  1. Oh yes, another DR701D note: NOT designed to monitoring during playback! Just record! If you set it up to print a mix to tracks 5-6, you can monitor that in playback, otherwise it's an undefined mono mix of the raw tracks. It's really just a capture device.
  2. All reports are that the DR701D sounded massively better than the 70. I owned the 701 for a year, then moved to a F8n. Wouldn't kick the 701 to the curb, but wouldn't go back either. Options and operation seem antiquated in comparison. If you only have $200 to spend, and can wait for a deal, a used 701D isn't a bad option, but there are probably also better ones in that range too.
  3. Yes! I use an MKH 800 Twin with an MKH 30 and the post options are great. Very much like horizontal only ambisonic native array.
  4. Good catch! Initially i was thinking 642, but that didn’t add up visually.
  5. The magic of proximity effect in ribbons! I was stunned the first time I used an RCA 44, the manual isn’t kidding when it says you need to use the low cut filter when closer than 3 feet. Maybe not the built in ‘voice’ filter, but some sort of compensation. A friend who obsesses over Columbo tells me the KU-3A was Peter Falk’s preferred mic.
  6. I know little, but it seems RCA KU-3's and EV 642's were in heavy usage in the era. The Sennheiser MKH805 shotguns showed up somewhere at the end of the 1960's, and Langevin in LA rebranded them.
  7. Look at the used market for Wohler rack mount broadcast monitors, they’re usually pretty cheap. I have a 1RU and a 2RU, the 1RU is usually more revealing in comparison against my other 2 speaker sets. They have multiple input switching, and a phase meter.
  8. Sorry to hear, RIP.
  9. Right. I meant maybe they fed mics into multiple mult paths, and now they don't.
  10. It may have to do with the requirements of the press splits.
  11. I've come to the inescapable conclusion that it is a sound that is expected in some situations, regardless.
  12. Comparing a few similar spots, on first impression, the lows seem to image more in the center with the Neumann, and slightly more with the corresponding highs with the Sennheiser. That may entirely be pre-bias on my part.
  13. Consider the Pearl and Milab mics that have rectangular capsules, which have different patterns vertical versus horizontal. The same is true for ribbons. The differences with both relate to off-axis sound pickup. Anything on axis 0º will sound the same with either orientation, it's the sound of 90º/etc that's going to change.
