  1. You have good mics. You have a 552 - that’s 5x good pre-amps with direct outputs. My 2c: I would suggest going with a good converter/interface, such as the ones from UA, or Apogee and record to a DAW (If you don’t already have them, buy or make 5x TA3 to XLR cables). Seeing the you are recording in “good sounding rooms”, I feel there’s no real need for a portable recorder. Plus with a DAW, it’s much more practical for overdubs, punching in etc. And I could be wrong, but when you do final mixing/mastering you would likely be doing that in a DAW anyway. If you’re set on using a portable recorder, I would recommend looking at a MixPre 10 with the music plug-in.
  2. 100% agreed. Only difference is TS-3EL here, otherwise same. I am all for new tech when it can help, but in this case see no reason to bring in BT and apps. —> Jam and verify, then forget about it for the rest of the day. I used to occasionally get an AC coming for a new jam because they had mistaken the on/off switch on the slate for the backlight switch, but ever since the switches got labeled with nice big p-touch stickers, that problem seems to have stopped, or at least been minimized.
  3. The M216 is putting out 10mw, but for a bag situation can work just fine, provided that the PR216s are pretty close. If you are on a cart, go with a BST Basestation, it’ cranks out 100mw, which can provide clean signal quite far, especially if you rig the antenna up on a mast above people’s heads.
  4. Ah ok, copy. I didn't read very closely, just kinda skimmed over it. Thanks for clarifying.
  5. Not sure if I’m reading it correctly, but looks like it was just renewed (?)
  6. And in Norway, (sometimes) just bread with cheese qualifies as a "sandwich".
  7. With 20x wires, make sure you get to bring on at least 2x qualified assistants.
  8. The faders on the CL-16 are P&G, which was the same on the CL-12 Alaia, but I believe the standard CL-12 had different faders, but as Derek said above email SD would be best.
  9. Hi Rafael As someone who grew up in Sweden, but have lived long enough in Southern California to be used to milder weather, I just literally got back from a week in Montreal, Canada. When I landed there, it was between -11C and -12C, but with some wind it "feels like" -18C (wind chill factor). But that's till pretty far from -30C ! I had on layers and bought a "trapper hat" almost half jokingly - it looks a bit goofy on me lol - but honestly was super happy that I had it with me. With even light wind, it makes it feel like the cold is "biting" the skin of your face, so I recommend a good scarf and hat, along with a wind proof coat with a hood. Hopefully, you will not spend a lot of time working outside in those conditions. Two very important things: 1. Layer up with breathable/moisture wicking layers, long underwear etc. If you are, for example hiking up a mountain side in warm clothes, carrying gear etc. you will get warm and sweat, so moisture wicking layers are important keep you dry, because if your clothes are getting wet from sweat, once you stand still, you will be miserably cold pretty quick. 2. Good boots will be your best friend. They need to keep your feet warm and dry. Should be light weight, but good insulation/waterproofing - look at something gore-tex. With grippy soles! Regarding RF, maybe someone else can chime in on what's legal etc, but I can only guess that it would be pretty clear scans, because there is not a lot of people way up in northern Norway.
  10. I just searched on Amazone and it showed tons of results in different widths…. What is the cloth tape you mentioned? Is it also made by MMM?
  11. Weird. Normally a 2U aluminum drawer would be half the weight of steel…. Like 7 pounds vs 14 pounds.
  12. The difference in weight is quite significant. Especially when you have a follow cart with 4-5 rack mount drawers.
  13. I think it’s unnecessary to point out other people’s “mistakes”. If you weren’t there on the day and you don’t know what the circumstances were, it’s not cool to post photos to imply that you “know better”, or whatever. That in itself is actually bringing negative energy.
