  1. Thanks Karl. Are these backwards compatible in any way? With modes? I can’t seem to find anything that says they are or aren’t. Thanks Peter
  2. Congratulations Lectro. Nice. Will there be a B1/C1 version in future for us in Australia? Thanks

    8 series firmware version 8 released a couple of days ago and includes copy and paste feature. Many thanks for listening, Sound Devices. Much appreciated.
  4. Thanks for the info. regards Peter
  5. Nice set up. I’ve been looking at the “Fish” for some time now. The A32 Dante in particular. I have a question about your Cisco switch. Audinate recommend using switches that do not have EEE as it can cause problems with Dante. Or switching the EEE off an all ports if the switch has the ability to disable the EEE. Does your Cisco switch have the option of disabling the EEE on all ports of the switch? (EEE - Energy Efficient Ethernet aka Green Ethernet) Thanks Peter
  6. Thanks again for the info PMC. I’m liking this idea more and more. I think I’ll give it a try. To the OP, sorry to hear about your hearing troubles. Hope you recover soon. Thanks
  7. Thanks for the info. Last few questions: Do you find them loud enough, especially in noisy environments? And with headphones on? Is the twin Jack plug standard? Does the Jack plug stay in the radio well? Or do you find it pops out easily? It looks like it doesn’t screw in like the other earpiece set ups. Thanks again
  8. Which headphones do you use over these? Is it comfortable, especially on long days? Does it come with the PTT inline switch? How well does it work/sound when listening to audio and and an incoming call comes through the comms? Thanks
  9. I never really got to try the demos properly because my Scorpio locked up when trying to switch between both. This freaked me out so I promptly downgraded to 7.20 and haven’t updated since. The issue must be resolved in 7.41 but I won’t know until I update. So I can’t really comment on the noise reduction demos at this stage. Sorry.
  10. The issues (I guess SD refers to the lock up I experienced) when switching between noise assist and Cedar demo have been addressed in the latest version 7.41. Thanks SD for rectifying so quickly. Will update soon. thanks
  11. Has anyone else had a lock up since updating to 7.40 while in the noise suppression menu? My Scorpio locked up while I was switching between Noise Assist and Cedar. The pop up that says it’s a demo/beep etc may have been the culprit but I think I’ll downgrade to 7.30 for now. Although I like the new folder options in 7.40 Re license etc, maybe a license that allows the plug-in to be used on say, 2 devices. For the folks who have 2 x 8 series for example. I have a Scorpio but I’ll be getting an 888 at some point. If I decide to buy a plug-in, it would be nice to have it on both machines for a 2 device fee for example. Thanks

    Hi I’ve sent Sound Devices a feature request. I thought I’d describe the feature here as well in case 8 series owners are interested and keen to see this feature. I've requested a copy and paste feature like large consoles have. Mainly for EQ but also good for compression and possibly noise assist. An example that came up recently was a day with insane cicadas. EQ notched out most of the cicada noise however going through the EQ process for every channel was time consuming. Copy and paste from 1 channel to the others would be superb. Thanks and regards Peter Mega
  13. Have a look at A&H QU- PAC. Or Yamaha TF-RACK
  14. After you’ve fixed it, get one of these and never take it out. https://www.sounddevices.com/product/xl-14/
  15. https://www.swamp.net.au/sun-rise-svp555p-wp-xlr-male-waterproof-panel-mount-connector-ipx7-black https://www.swamp.net.au/sun-rise-svp556x-wp-3p-xlr-female-waterproof-connector-ip67 How about these?
  16. Have a look at LK connectors and Eurocable for analog multicore. I’ve got a 24 channel (20/4) made from these components and it’s never let me down. It’s been extremely reliable. I had a company in Sydney make up 2 x 25 metre lengths with 2 sets of tails so I can use it as a 25 metre or 50 metre. It’s completely modular. LK have 4 channel versions etc. http://www.lkconnectors.info/lk_audio.htm ive also got a Whirlwind CATDUSA that I bought for a job and then never used it. Though on testing it worked fine with all line level signals. Mixed mic and line is not good for cross talk with average CAT cable. Get some quality cable built for location deployment (wrap/unwrap many times over) with good quality ethercon connectors and the cable will last. cheers
  17. Do you have an older Zaxcom stereo link in your bag? They can also cause a high frequency squeal in your Lectro.
  18. Have a look at Sescom https://www.sescom.com/products/view/category/categoryslug/smartphone
  19. Hi Im still using my R1a. The new R1b is cool but doesn’t really do what I want so I doubt I’ll buy any time soon. Will make do with what I’ve got. Good luck Cheers
  20. Yes it’s for a waist belt to pass through. I’ve never used it though. When I tried it, I found it uncomfortable. I clip my waist belt onto the D Rings at the bottom of the bag at the back. The Velcro strip over the belt flap thingy is for when the handle is folded down. You can secure the handle with the strip of Velcro.
  21. maybe these? https://m.alibaba.com/product/1146076540/wholesale-silicone-cover-custom-stock-rubber.html?s=p

    DCHT & M2R

    Let us know how it goes in the real world. Thanks Peter.
  23. The Sound Devices XL-14 is what I use. I have a few which are permanently plugged into my recorder bag kits. I bring the 1/4 inch end up to the top of the bag for quick in/outs. never had a headphone jack issue
  24. Probably because there’s a new CL coming for the Scorpio and 833 that is possibly backwards compatible with 6 series (and maybe even 7 series)
