    Comtek BST-25/216 on battery power?

    I run mine off a Np1 with a 12 v homemade regulator...... 1 batt lasts a full day
  2. I worked with one last week Didnt have the audio input extension ,but took TC without any futzing .... Has a built in crappy mic . Didnt hear anything back from post so I guess it all synced up fine. I didn’t hear the fan .

    Control surface vs mixer

    Yep.... too much choice these days in the digital world.... when we were shooting 35mm film Scenes were heavily rehearsed for camera moves.... Which was a great help for the boomThese days we shoot the rehearsal and I rely a lot on the wires,Add in 2 or 3 Cameras wide an tight Makes for fun times ha Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Control surface vs mixer

    I'm intrigued to know how the track counts are getting up into the 12 track mark especially in the TVC world. I'm mainly doing commercials and mostly use my 633 with the 664 as backup.... I very rarely need any more than 6 tracks.Even with the quite decent budget 2-3 cam US drama I've spent the last month on I didn't go over 8.... This is relevant to the topic as the mixer I'm looking at is 8 channel and the surface is 12 Cheers

    DPA Slim or 4060/61?

    The 4061 is low sensitivity... I use them with smv and smqv with no noticeable hiss and they sound great. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I have a separate sd633 bag with matching RX , tho having just one cable with a controller is appealing... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Control surface vs mixer

    Yep I've managed 25years without long throw faders And as a ISO gatherer (haha )rather than a mix engineer it' would be a nice luxury.... I have used the cl12 on jobs and while I found it nice, I didn't have any epiphany moments..... I have some coin to burn but am thinking the mixpre6 rig may be my ultimate small bag project As I work a lot of tvc jobs more often than not I'm using limited channels so I'm not sure the cl12 would get used to its full potential, Maybe next drama job I'll pick one up..... Thanks guys just this bit of dialog has cemented my thoughts that I don't need a dedicated mixer. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I'm leaning towards the cl12 as it fits in nicely with my mini cart ethos And it will also work seamlessly with my 633 bag. And yes there will be more 6 series recorders in the future it will integrate with Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    My other thoughts are about how our job has changed with multi tracking.... We used to really have to work harder with the tools to get balance and eq right as we were mixing to 2 tracks. Now I find the more problematic parts of the job can be all the bussing of signal around set... I work a lot of TVC jobs with different video guys and equipment. And the various problems they throw at the sound dept And putting my post prod hat on ...clean isos with not a lot of eq or limiting, no wind or rustle is what I'm happy delivered to me Anyway I'm just riffing on a stream of audio consciousness... 3 days on from 4 x 80 hour weeks... my brain is awaking Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Control surface vs mixer

    I'm thinking about a front end for the sd664 . I have an opportunity to purchase a used 8 channel film mixer for the same price as the cl12....original price on mixer is 3 or 4 times the control surface. In 2017, with a sd664 ,is the control surface the logical option.? In my mind it's smaller, lighter,but I guess a one trick pony . I'm throwing this out there really as a discussion. I know I'll get a lot of "it depends"but the why it depends is what interests me. The other apples with apples option is a sd688 cl12 vs a dedicated mixer recorder? The sd688 /cl12 adds the Eq and multiple bussing options that you get in a mixer and gives access to 4 xtra channels. Although I've just finished a large show with a bag/ cart rig with no mixer or surface....getting quite good at mixing the mono track on rotaries...... Weight wise the surface wins hands down, Cost wise about the same. Upgrade wise the cl12 fits in if I choose to buy a sd688 in the future. Anyway I'm sure there's a lot of people out there who have used one or the other or both, I'm interested in your thoughts in our ever changing tech environment. Cheers Nevo
