  1. You really think the CL-9 is your least coolest piece of gear? As far as control surfaces go, it’s pretty great. I like it a lot better than the CL-12, and even the new one doesn’t have some of the features of the 9.
  2. It’s a 5422 eight channel mixer, modded with direct outs, phantom power switches on every channel, cleaner S/N ratio, higher dynamic range, and a boom op comms section, among other additions. Dugan, Denecke, and other greats all had a pass on supping this up from stock.
  3. My Neve mixer that was used by a veteran Sound Mixer on a bunch of great shows! I also have his Dan Dugan hot rodded Nagras 4.2 and STC!
  4. I used to run a Dorrough meter on my cart. I made a cable to connect it to my DC distro in place of the AC adapter and it worked fine.
  5. This is why I have never been a fan of the rigid bags that have been popular the past few years, and have stuck with the simple PortaBrace bag that initially came with the 633, or moved to a Condor bag for a smaller footprint.
  6. Rebuilding/wiring my cart, watching a ton of documentaries, FaceTiming with friends. I got my guitar out of the closet, we’ll see if I go for it! Cooking of course, and trying to avoid Facebook Lets keep good conversations going here!
  7. If they’re getting dropouts from being a little removed from the teradeks, they could also be fighting with each other in the frequency realm. Unfortunately most camera people don’t understand anything about wireless technology, and will continue to bring more and more wireless devices on set that will keep stepping on your gear. It’s a losing battle for us I’m afraid. You can try to educate them, maybe talk to someone above them about the issue, but you yourself need to be well informed beforehand. It sounds like maybe you need to do a little more homework before bringing it up. What I would do: A: set up my wireless with sharkfins remoted closer to the talent and pointed away from the cameras. B: try to convince any stationary cameras to go hardwired.
  8. Condor Deployment Bag (Black, 12 x 6 x 5.5-Inch) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B003W96GG8/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_6DGtEbXFM9QNF
  9. +1 Ive done this too and it works perfectly fine.
  10. Off the top of my head, I’d say an easy solution would be to get an NP cup terminated for Hirose and an LMC AC cup adapter. I’m sure there are other options but this is what I used for years when I wasn’t using a PSC AC/Battery source.
  11. Simple but to the point. The photos say it all!
  12. If you recall, when the 6 series rolled out, the 633 was initially not supported for the CL-12. The reason was basically because it is a bag mixer, and if you want to mix with faders on a cart, you should get a cart mixer. I would say that it would have been smart for SD to consider that MAYBE someone out there would want to buy two 833s (principal and backup) to primarily use in a bag, but with the use of the long forgotten C-Link, could gang their two machines together and use a CL-16 for those projects that come around maybe not often enough to justify also buying an 888. Just my thoughts, but I feel like a lot of bag mixers out there can identify with this scenario. It’s perhaps a missed opportunity for SD sales if CL-16 implementation for the 833 and C-Link weren’t abandoned.

    Camera Hops

    @jwill since I started this thread, the DCHT was released, and it really ticks a lot of boxes for me. I’d like to eventually migrate over to that system, just waiting on a few things right now. I got a chance to beta test your setup and it is really something. Question to you tho: what do you think of the levels from the M2R? I kind of felt like it was a bit low. I think about cameras like the Alexa that are line level only. I’ve never been able to get -20dB tone on an Alexa, always about -26/-28 from other hop systems I’ve tried, which isn’t the end of the world but annoying that it’s low. I like to think of myself as being very thorough, and getting low levels on cameras hurts my pride!
  14. Three things about this control surface: 1- The mixpre pots. Couldn’t go for more pro looking pots? 2- The Rec/Stop buttons all the way at the top. I hated that about the CL-12. Absolutely love where they are on the CL-9. 3- I hope the comms buttons aren’t merely toggles like they were in the 6 series, performing different functions depending upon the menu you are in. Please be dedicated comms like in the 7 series.
