  1. No M50s, but I have a SM58 with some spit/dna from Alicia Keys, Adele and some other singers in on it, 5000$ sounds about right
  2. of course they do degrade. What make you think microphones are an exception of the "laws of physics"? 25k of that 30k neumann is gearslutz tax by the way. *Now, because some mics are having an "epic history", might make it very much worthwhile to restore/fix, whatever. But all labour and component expenses involved, after a while, it becomes a technical total-loss (not taking the "fanatic tax" into account, sure, a "name-50/60s car model" is sometimes also worth to fix for this reason)*
  3. On the other hand, our hearing gets worse and worse as well, over time. So I guess in the end everything evens out perfectly
  4. Regarding microphones; maybe not a populair thing to say, but microphones degrade over time. So a decades old mic, might be "working", but is technically not the same as one that is a couple years old, or brand new. Nothing you really can do about, that is just the natural degradation of the components (condenser mic/plates not holding capacitance, thus less effective, pcb components wearing out etc etc). This all not to the point that it will fail, but indeed enough to alter the sound and the potential of the initial design. Even more so do to the nature of our work; Outside, uncontrolled, humid, not humid, cold, warm, locations.
  5. That most likely means they do the distribution for Africa too.
  6. Tentacle first gen, tentacle second gen, and 3 prototype Deity TC-1 boxes (that was the focus of my test actually, the latter 🤫)
  7. For what it's worth it; I recently had to do an endurance test for multiple TC devices and I used the Zoom F6 for that. Jammed the F6 once, let it run on internal TC. Had 5 TC devices connected to the Audio inputs (LTC) and recorded several polywav files and monowav files over the course of a long working day (10+ hours) without power cycling any of the devices. All files, and I mean ALL, stayed completely in time, no drift, without dropouts/skipping, etc. FW of the F6 was 1.7.
  8. Hi Jordan, I informed our US support dept. about your support request; It seems your "ticket" was not registered for some reason. (BTW; long hold press the power button for a restart of the unit).
  9. We are fully aware of the (huge) delay on the BP-TRX (caused by a variety of reasons) and personally I would have like to see that differently, obviously. Though, I can not give an exact date yet, we are REALLY (and this time, REALLY) close to launch. The moment I do have exact dates, worldwide, I will post it here. Apologies for the inconvenience, we learned our lessons on announcing things way ahead of time.
  10. for sure. My post was from the --Yeah, it is possible, capable, from a technical point of view--. Is it ideal, desirable? Neh.
  11. Hi all, yes the BP-TRX is USB audio class compliant, the "release candidates" I have here on my bench are completely functional with the laptops and android phones I have at my disposal over USB; it just shows up as "BP-TRX" in Reaper DAW for example. At the moment we do not have user replaceable kits for the batteries; at the moment we do it at our repair facilities in the various regions of the world (EU/Amsterdam, US/Los Angeles etc). so it is an easy sent in, and swap at the moment. But we are working on a kit. That all said, we are really getting close to release, it all takes longer than we all want, but the end/beginning is near!
  12. Technically no real issues (Garageband and other apps for phones are not new), I think it boils down to "dedication" of the hardware. The processor in the phone vs a recorder is about the same, if not, better in the phone. But FPGAs and (arm) processors in dedicated devices/recorders are tailor made for doing specific tasks very good, whilst a phone has to reserve things for other tasks as well. Your phone is just a computer, so it comes down that the bottleneck the software/Operating system. TC could be solved with one audio input of an interface dedicated to LTC (and again, software that picks that up correctly, writes it to meta data, etc).
  13. I guess if there are loads and loads of complaints, concerns or returns, they would have.
  14. I have had one in my hands to check it out, didn't check it for solderability though. But assuming it is, which most likely is the case, it will take you 5 minutes to do so, and you can use your beloved headset. We solder plugs on 300/600 usd lavs all the time to adapt them to different systems, so not a big deal.
  15. Why not just solder the right connector/wiring? Or am I missing something here?
  16. I think you are projecting a little, or a lot. All I said was "his art his choice, move along" (meaning to me: it doesn't matter, millions of movies are made, with certain artistic choices, whether it is sound, lightning, whatever). I guess the bait was in the latter of my sentence, the "move along", that for some reason I am the subject all of the sudden over here. No, I was talking about his style. Like, how David Fincher's films are basically always dark and green, Gaspar Noé shocking without borders, And Vin Diesel films is sponsored by white wife beaters.
  17. Oh you gonna play it below the belt now? From a technical point of view I will be the first to start a discussion. This is not it. fair point, yet in the end, there is no right or wrong in this. I believe gradually we can conclude this now, after x-amount of Nolan's movies with overwhelming sound.
  18. @madno, we are also talking via email, but since you posted here as well; You are putting a mic level (DSLR ISO) out into an line level input. That explains also the low RMS of -50dB average in the screenshot I send you. That will explain the high noise floor. You cranked way up. See your email for the other settings I adviced.
  19. I listened to the file. Sounds like loose wiring, internally I guess.
  20. In Deity case, no. Pre-amp -> AD conververion @24b/48k -> Transmission. Think of it as your Wifi connection; it has to cramp a lots of bits and bytes in a narrow band, so *FSK is needed, yet it remains the same as the original digital signal on the RX end. what system? Might be the AD conversion or preamp you hear?
  21. Your assumption does not apply to the Deity Connect system, and my guess is neither to the others, even the higher end systems. Most, if not all, systems use some form of Frequency-shift keying (FSK), which is, to talk in your therms "lossless".
