    DPA 4017B Noise

    Sorry i jumped the gun just got to listen to the file. That is much more than i was experiencing which was more like The audible click of a loose element or something versus hard-core interference. But if it helps the customer service I experienced in the transaction of my repair was outstanding

    DPA 4017B Noise

    I have a 4017b that I had to send in for repair. my noise problem was something loose inside that was only noticeable during swinging boom versus stationary. They did repair under warranty but it took a while unfortunately. But i do love that mic and felt it was worth the wait. Your issue sounds in the same realm of possibility?

    Improving my bag

    Almost always with DSLR’s you can manually input time code (i.e. set recorder tc to phone time, use phone for reference at camera) to at least be accurate within a few frames, as with fs7’s without tc back etc - but - doesnt help as much If they constantly switch between high speed. But with multicam intv’s etc it helps keep things close in the timelines
  5. +1 for audiopile i have had several snakes from them over the years, tons of trs to xlr and xlr cables still in use today after purchased long long time ago.
  6. This is all great info. I have been reading a lot of history. I didnt think mine was a knockoff when i received it but even better bill was able to confirm it is not. For me personally the price I paid plus the sentimental value coming from a good friend - to do the upgrades was well worth it to have hopefully a good quality Microphone now. But not a front line worker that’s for sure. Not intended to be used on a handheld boom if ever. This one came in a wooden cigar box with 10 DB pad and cardioid, supercardiod and Omni capsules.
  7. I am unfamiliar with these microphones but recently I was given one by a friend. I gave it a quick listen and it had some inherent noise interference inside of the mic itself as the capsule seem to be OK duplicating the same problem. I sent it to Bill Setler for repair as well as his premium upgrade that he offers. He Detected the problem and ended up replacing the solder board itself for what I would call a very modest repair fee. I think he even did the repair in the very same day he received it and it’s already on its way back to me. Curious if anyone here is actively using this microphone

    TC arri mini

    the qbits worked for me as well previous, only upgraded recently as its nice to have visual feedback. But qbits are solid little boxes for these mini’s

    TC arri mini

    I 2nd this, on mini’s I personally only use jb-1’s strapped to the back of a zaxcom receiver and that seems to (so far) work solid on every mini I come in contact with
  10. With memtioning premier it got me going a different direction since ultimately i would love the same possibilities in pro tools, currently looking into this as an option: https://blog.simonsays.ai/avid-pro-tools-export-from-simon-says-and-import-directly-into-pro-tools-69b732991073
  11. That is a great idea. I told him you suggested that maybe it can be implemented and simplify things. Howy also mentioned we might be able to open the Settings files in a text editor And possibly access those R output settings. Might be a fix in the meantime at least for my headphone settings in particular
  12. per Howy this morn... "Yes once we added 16 tracks there was no room to put the rest of the output bus selections so they are mono. I was thinking of trying to make those output boxes contain a L,R,C instead of just an X."
  13. That all makes sense. My issue is i cant “uncheck” the right matrix at present so i think my way around might be to build new entries after my old ones and disable the old?
  14. This is great thank you. Mine was updated at the factory and i assume my presets loaded still tick those boxes but i cant see them at present. Also i should clarify i did check with howy first and waiting to hear back
  15. Any chance someone here might have an older nova firmware and might confirm for me if i am going crazy - wasnt there a right side 1/2/3/4 out previously? When i uncheck the L the R is still present in my headphones but i cant seem to access
