    Sound Devices 633 latch up

    Had my 633 latch up half way through a job yesterday Turned power on the initial Sound Devices screen appeared but recorder did not boot up Switching off and removing power did nothing and the machine just stayed with screen on After about 25 minutes the machine turned off and allowed normal boot up when powered up Quite and embarrassing situation to be in! Any advice or comments please? mike

    Audio Interface for Women

    Yep I agree with most sentiments above Firstly we have great women in sound and remarkable women AC's here in NZ On the other hand some skill areas do not attract woman - grips and lighting Make-up wardrobe, hair and art department yes. We all navigate to what suits us for many reasons! mike

    waterproofing and mounting a lectro bodypack?

    I have 4 x MM400a transmitters and they have seen a lot of this work A B6 is a bit frail for rugged situations so they all have B3's that are more rugged mike
