  1. I don't actually know this is what's happening, it's just a thing to check and possibly rule out. With the slates the solution is to set the TC rate manually. I don't think i've tried my mixpre getting TC from the ifb200, but I have had problems with the tentacles not taking a jam from Zaxcom at certain frame rates.
  2. It's possible this is related to the jitter in Zaxcom's tc stream fooling the mixpre's auto frame rate detection similar to the way it fools denecke slates. If you don't have another generator to try, try different frame rates and see if you find the same behavior.
  3. Good to know. I've never really compared the difference in a measurable way. Thanks
  4. I wonder what the difference is between this and the emc series shielded xlr's?
  5. Yeah, I guess I'm being a little loose with my verbage.
  6. While 3.3v may not "technically" be up to spec for some mics, in practice the 4060 performs just fine. I am using a 4061 on a zmt3 as I type this and it sounds great.
  7. Thanks Klaus for the great write up. I didn't know that regen was also retuning the clock.
  8. Exactly right. I have been sleeping my zmt3 throughout the day today via zaxnet and it definitely makes a difference in battery life
  9. They took power roll out, not sleep.
  10. Also the tuning process on the Arri's happens in the background and doesn't affect normal operation.
  11. Lovely. That's pretty impressive.
  12. This is a good point. Hopefully that's 12 hours at at least 50mw + recording.
  13. 12 hours on a single battery is pretty great. I'm not familiar with the BT100 battery, and having already 2 different kinds of batteries for my lavs, I'm unlikely to want to add a 3rd. I don't really do them, but there will be shows that will need the battery life.
  14. This looks like a nice and compact upgrade to my 4 channel bag. I think the banked rotary encoders will be a great feature once getting used to using them.
  15. That looks great. I've always wanted a portable UHF receiver that I can use to check a talents wire if I'm wiring off set. Will be great for boom op monitoring too.

    scorpio!

    With the Icon system you can add additional fader panels to get as many faders as you need. You don't have to use banks if you don't want.

    If used with an Icon M+ surface, can tracks 1-12 be controlled by the M+, or only with the rotary faders on the unit? Found the MCU control list: "Control and display parameters include the following: 1. Channel Name 2. Channel Faders 3. Channel Trims 4 Channel Pans 5. Channel Mutes 6. Channel Solos 7. Channel Record Arm/Disarm 8. Channel “fat channel” (Source, Limiter, HPF, EQ, Bus sends) 9. Channel bank switching 10. Bus Master Faders 11. Output Master Faders 12. Transport Controls"

    I was paraphrasing from the faq's.

    It's Mackie Control so a lot of different surfaces should work, but SD sounds like they don't want to provide technical support for other surfaces understandably.

    Will be able to connect to the tablet app via Bluetooth in the future.

    I have been toying with the idea of using an Icon M+ controller and Reaper for an in the box live mixing / recording rig to get rid of the console, but am always too worried about reliability for a live broadcast. This plus a dante enabled effects server is much better.

    And I just noticed they included Word Clock on the TC connector. Lovely.
