  1. Just know not to bury your lavs .. I like my 7506s...
  2. Still one of my favorite albums.... wonderful..
  3. Another take in the line with an added PU... Does the trick and nobody is confused.... all serious notes should be with the script supervisor. The mixer adding a PU on their notes will aid the process.. With TC and notes, everyone gets it.. at least they should.
  4. I had a 788 shut down a few times in downtown LA while in a process trailer... it was about 108... but really hot in the cab...Not a pleasant situation.. Man that machine was so hot you could barely touch it. I also had one shut down at Dumont dunes... it was about 115 .. I think even hotter and that was at 19:30.. I agree with Philip, my 6 series machines in the really hot weather seem to do much better, never had a problem in some of the same situations... Also agree that the 833 is a busy box, a lot going on... I guess busy has it's price..
  5. Granted, but where we work that amount of heat is No Bueno...
  6. The heat is bad news for us folks in already high heat areas, me Arizona and Southern California where the outside temp can start at well over 100 degrees on a moderate day.. I hated my 788 cooking as well as my 744 back in the day. This may be a deal breaker for me.. if it's cooking in Switzerland, we're pretty much toast in Arizona...LOL I never have heat issues at all with my 633/688 rigs.. cool man cool.. Henrimic said... "On the other hand, what worries me a little is the heat released by the device. After a while, it becomes almost impossible to hold hands on the frame as it is so hot." Really!!!?
  7. A consistent one frame offset should not be an issue... Looks like the editors were trying to make more money..
  8. I contacted Lectrosonic about mine and updating ... I have the earliest versions... literally #1 off the production line... I was told, not to update mine, it was not necessary.
  9. JB-1.... I do like my Mozegear too!!!! small simple.. and works great!!
  10. I believe the work flow is something like this... Switch to 32 bit, record as you normally do... Set up your gain staging as normal... if something too hot blows out the track, it can be brought back in post.. I believe that this is best used directly into an input with a mic, and not having radios with limiters.. or track limiters engaged, otherwise it will hit the limiters before the saving graces of the 32 bit can help out... Probably best used boom into over the shoulder rig, effects and wild dialog quiet to screaming... no limiters, but, your best attempt at trim and level setting. Until I know more, this is how I see the system working in the real world.. We are about to know more as this progresses I am sure..
  11. So functionally speaking, in terms of everyday use, mix as you normally do by trying to correctly have all phases of audio in your chain properly set level wise. Then, rest assured that any surprise super loud level, or, level really low by an actor or sound can be readjusted in post... back to a nice workable largely undamaged and-or perfectly usable file. Is this the SD version of a never clip style system?? I will say again, I sure hope we get a notification that this can be implemented Firmware update wise in my 6 Series recorders, and the new Scorpio... Of course, but once we already have our recorders, those after the fact additions to those recorders sure are nice... hence, Dugan Auto mix and the Auto mute, both of which I cherish.. Thanks Jon!!
  12. Jon, Is there any way an update to 633/688 recorders can contain the new 32 bit format recording?? In the future..??
  13. I would regret it... keep your recorder and save for your mics..
