  1. i thought about it for a short while, but decided against it as it would mean buying the UMP III, and a few NP50 batteries and a charger. and two more A20s. I will wait for the inevitable replacement of the A10. the A11? the A10X? the A10-32? the shutupandtakemymoney?
  2. what are your compressor settings on the tx? there is still a maximum level that can be recorded and transmitted. neverclip means that the compressor has undistorted audio to work with to get your levels to within that maximum, rather than the A/D overloading before the compressor does its thing.
  3. yes. they can be used with the wisy TX. (as well as most other manufacturers that use the 3 pin mini Lemo)

    assign noise assist to your chosen bus. in the bus assign page, select more... then you can find the noise assist amount. and with the output you want to use to send you IFB, assign your chosen bus.
  5. you will be able to record a L and R mix track, and i think Bus 1 and Bus 2. ( i can on my 888 and scorpio, but am only assuming you can on the 833). the manual (or an 833 owner) will be able to tell you how many physical inputs you can also record.
  6. an oldie but a goldie
  7. in the XLR connectors of the PIanissimo, break the connection between pin 1 and the shell, so that there is no connection to the shell, only pin 1. i did this to mine and it fixed issues i was having with my A10 transmitters.
  8. i am saying that i do not believe that the A10 rack has the hardware to pass 4 channels of audio from a single slot. the 8 XLRs on the back of the unit would bear that out. i also suspect that the Dante board in the A10 rack only supports 8 channels, so there isnt any scope for additional channels there. please also note, i am using the word belief to indicate that i do not know for sure, i am just a guy that uses the stuff, and occasionally remembers stuff from the manual. if you want a definitive answer to your questions, the Audio Ltd and Sound Devices will be the best people to ask. they are lovely people and are generally pretty quick at getting back to you with technical questions. good luck
  9. the A10 rack can only output 8 channels of audio per rack. i dont believe it has the hardware to support 4 channels of audio per slot. if you loop the antenna input of one rack to another, that will give you the 16 channels of audio with one pair of antennas. the bit you were quoting from was in the RF distribution part of the specs.
  10. Nomad has neverclip on its analogue inputs. thats the main thing i miss since i sold mine.
  11. how many watts is your iron? i use a 25w iron that is fine for xlrs
  12. i have this one somewhere in my doesnt fit me anymore, but might if i just stop eating those tasty snacks and do some more exercise drawer. https://www.moretvicar.com/collection/the-daily-mash/product/not-listening-mens-black-t-shirt
  13. whats your recorder? most will have sample rate conversion for each AES pair. you would be better off having your recorder as the sync master if thats the case. that way you will have no issues if you have any problems with a receiver you set to be the master.
  14. the resistors are specific to the Lectro wiring. here is a link to the countryman wiring table https://countryman.com/microphone-wiring/#table and if you search the internet for lectrosonics mic wiring, youll be able to find the lectrosonics sheet with all the various wiring options for their transmitters.
  15. you'll need to remove the top casing of the 688, and possibly some of the screws from the underside as well. once you are able to remove either the top or bottom part of the casing, the battery door will be easy to remove.
  16. ive never tried wiring this mic, but from comparing a COS11 which has an audio and bias wire, my first try would be to connect blue and shield to pin 1 and red to pin 3 though i would at least solder the blue and shield together and prep the red wire, then place the solder insert into a powered up transmitter as it would if it had the outer shell, then touch the cables to pins 1 and 3. if you can hear audio, solder it up and assemble it. if it doesnt work, try with blue to pin 3 and red tied to shield and pin 1.
  17. when i was using my 688 with CL12, the wingman plugged into one of the USB sockets at the back of the CL12. i assume the same will be true with the 633. it would be worth having a look through the 688 and cl12 manuals in case its not mentioned in the 633 manual.
  18. no though it might make a difference with the cable used as it may have a different diameter of the conductor, and so may not fit in the pin of the BNC. but signal wise. it still works whatever you use.
  19. the SNA600 will be seen as a short circuit by anything supplying voltage for powered antennas. the SNA600A fixes this. its a very simple mod if you are comfortable with a soldering iron to do. you'll need to make a break on a part of the circuit board of the antenna and add a capacitor. speak to lectrosonics and they will be able to talk you through what is required, and if not tell you the part you need, send it to you.
  20. thank you for saving me the trouble of posting what you just said. way way way back when, i used to use a miniDA42 until SD updated the 788T to allow limiters on the digital inputs. comparing the DA42 analogue out to the mic through the 788 digital in, i didn't notice any difference in noise floor between the two. the thinking always was that the higher noise floor was a better trade off versus what the mic could do with ambient noise and room echo.
  21. it will be the left and right outputs of the Hirose, so pin 1 and 2 for AES 5+6, pin 3 and 4 for AES 7+8.
  22. i would ask SD for confirmation, but that would be my best guess.
  23. pin 10 i think would be a loop through of the DC input, so can be used if you want to power a receiver with it. the input voltage range is 10-18v. it has nothing to do with AES42, as the powering is provided the same way you would power a P48 mic - with the XLR. when i made myself an input cable for my super CMIT, it didn't use pin 10.
  24. ive been really enjoying his MMX build videos. and through him, have found This Old Tonys channel which i have found very pleasing. and if you enjoy jump cut gags, videos of machinists doing machining, dad jokes, and general silliness, there is a few hours to be spent watching his work. i think the gag at the start of this video is appropriate for this crowd.
