    Isolation Headphones

    I got a set a few years ago. They work great but I found them to big to have kicking around just in case. They are great for listening to music while mowing the lawns though. Instead I carry a set of Shure E2 earphones. I find them a lot more convenient. Really handy for helicopter work under a coms headset and for locations where you need to wear a hard hat. The Direct Sound head set gives better isolation, there just not that convenient. Adam

    New Zealand - Wellington info please

    Almost forgot. NZ Customs can be a pain in the ass. I did a job in Sydney two weeks ago. It was late notice so didn't have a carnet. I did an export order and had it stamped by NZ customs on my way out. AU customs didn't have any problems once they realized that I was from NZ and had no intention of leaving my gear behind. But when i arrived back in NZ I got a "warning" form NZ Customs for not having a carnet. Serves me right for being honest and declaring my work equipment. Adam

    any 552 gotchas or info?

    The thing the bugs me about 552 is the fact that there is a USB port on the bottom that cant be used to access the cards. IOh, and avoid A-DATA SD cards. Adam

    552 file/card error

    I had similar problems the other day. I ran the mac disk utility and repaired it and managed to solve most of my issues except for one corrupted file. I think my problem was caused when i powered my mixer off before the 552 had finished writing the file. I have a master power switch in my bag that I tend to hit a little to fast some times. Im also not sure about my cards. I have a couple of A-DATA one that may be causing problems. Adam

    RODE Pin Mic

    Hi I've just received the latest price list for Rode products for distributers. It shows the Pin Mic on it. It doesn't seem to have shown up on Rode's web site yet though. Adam

    InstaSnake from ETS

    Silly question but. How is phantom power getting through the ballen? I open up a system that had the same specs as the InstraSnake and found nothing in it. I've modeled my snake on this and its worked great. Really good if your flying with it and need to keep your weight down. Adam

    SD 552

    Im loving the ability to send AES to XD cameras. I can feed four tracks now if i like. I used it on a music job the other day and was able to send vocal, guitar and a stereo mic for natural reverb, separately to camera with out having to mic it down. Adam
