    Sonosax SX-R4+

    I've run 4x MCR42 and an audio ltd RF DA from the DC output quite happily. Digital receivers are another story...

    Finally a cheap and accurate Timecode slate?

    The timecode systems app (or paired movieslate) has had this for years, since the master. It also works with the wave and pulse- useful for the odd thing where you need to put TC in front of a gopro or something, but doesn't really replace a proper slate

    WTB 4 Channel Recorder for Tetrahedral Mic

    Yes, and the R4+ (which has some new ambisonic decoding firmware on the way soon)

    Sonosax SX-M32

    I don’t know, I’m afraid

    600 MHz gear

    606-614MHz is good in the UK (in fact the only range we can reasonably use without a fixed site license), and up to 700MHz works with a fixed site license
  6. Only just seen this- as a note I've not really used any of the computer setups in anger. I am working on something, though...

    Sonosax SX-R4+

    Thank you Jacques, I was wondering if it was possible to use the ambeo option card and the XLR microphone inputs at the same time, and if other analogue sources could be sent to the ambeo connector?

    Sonosax SX-R4+

    Didn't see the option card- would this give additional analogue inputs alongside the 4 XLR inputs or would they be switched? I know a few people interested in the R4+ but would need additional analogue inputs and the AD8+ is more than they need

    Rates in UK / Europe

    It's usually at least £100 of kit on top of that. For a number of reasons our kit rental rates seem to be considerably lower than those I've seen charged in the US. You may need to hire radio mics in locally, there are quite specific license requirements here. Actually with the kit quoted I'd be charging over £500 with that for a 10hr day

    Sonosax SX-M32

    I didn’t measure it, but it has a similar footprint to an iphone 6

    Sonosax SX-M32

    I’d look at it as a nicer sounding 302 with more functionality (direct outs and AES3), rather than any kind of alternative to the 688. I’ve still got mine- it sounds lovely still, but the R4+ preamps are up a notch on these I’d say The SX-M2D2 looks like it’s pretty much exactly what you’re after (it’s also *tiny*), but still in development and I doubt it’ll be available before the end of the year. I’ve attached some photos of the prototype casing, but it may well change (they were looking at changing the controls and putting them on the shorter side)

    NEW: Audio Ltd - DDX1010

    They should share the same pinout as superslot receivers so audio and power should work in the octopack. There's a picture of one in a SL6 in the IBC video https://youtu.be/AIfsZPAT7w4

    16-Channel Analogue to Dante Location Mixer

    Here's something I had a look at earlier in the year and I've mentioned a little about to Mr Bacon, however it would require a bit of work to get the control surface mappings sorted- it wouldn't be plug and play. Most modern audio interfaces have dsp mixing engines in now, and they'll work with a control surface- I've got a couple of the MOTU AVB boxes and have them working with a computer running the control translations from midi to OSC, but hope to have another box replace that. http://rtsound.net/audio-interfaces-location-mixers/

    It's now ofcom who deal with the licenses directly: https://www.ofcom.org.uk/manage-your-licence/radiocommunication-licences/pmse All pretty much the same, coordinated licenses on ch38, site specific ones available on most other frequencies (although the 700band is now being sold off)

    Mixer Mods for Zaxcom?

    Although not necessarily zaxcom compliant- this is the superslot serial data specifications (which may be in the right direction): "Standard UART Rx and Tx connections required. Recommended UART BAUD rate is 115k, 8n1. Lower rates can be used, but will result in slower communication of data. SuperSlot UART signaling is 3.3V but is 5V tolerant on signals from client " However I expect it may be easier to reverse engineer the controller and seeing what it transmits
