  1. Wow this thread has gone le long way around!! I have no complaints with my Fusion. I'm actually thinking in buying another one second hand as the Deva 24 is going to be out of my reach (3 little kids will do this to you) and I can get the extra tracks I need for a fraction of the cost. If only I could connect a fully functioning oasis to it... Who knows, I might land a sweet job and go mad and buy the 24... possibilities are endless! (dream on dream on...that ever dangling freelance carrot...)
  2. I found a thread in the Zaxcom users, the one in the Zaxcom website. It seems there where some issues with some people. I think it worked better for me TC wise...
  3. Hi, all. After starting a new show I have been getting feedback from post that the TC is not being consistent. I have put lockit box and tentacle synch on the cameras and that seemed to fix the problem. I had a look at the software update page in Zaxcom just to make sure I was running the up to date software and I saw that I had v7.57t and the latest was 7.56 I updated the software to the recommended version and now it seems to be worse than before with TC being more of an issue than before. I have searched for the 7.57t version and I couldn't see it anywhere. I'm pretty sure it was that version.... I'm jamming the boxes more often and hopefully that will do the trick. Thanks everyone.

    Equipment wishes for 2017

    A lot of people have lots or radios with analog outs. You still need the analog in for a while, as long as Lectro and the rest don't have digital outs on the receivers. I for one could not afford to change all my radios and Octopack

    Partial Reformat on Fusion 10

    Hello everyone, I'm trying to extract the files from a Primary Card from my Deva Fusion 10 and and error pops up saying: 1,<MIR_Zax2BWFPcCh_ERR_1>) and on the warning says it could not find available Wrapper. I have read posts about partially formatting the cards. Can it be done in the Fusion? how? Would this fix the problem? Thanks

    I was told once by my cuban sound teacher: "Every director has the sound they deserve" So true...
  11. Hi all, I'm a proud owner or a Sennheiser 8070. Sounds great until it stops sounding great... I heard a low background noise on it, I wasn't sure if it was the atoms noise or what... I compared it to the MKH 60's. I have 2 of them and both sounded cleaner. Checked with a few COS-11 and they also sounded cleaner. My new mic had a fault! I sent it to repair and THEN I was told that there was a batch of faulty mics... I'm still on the process of getting it repaired or replaced. It would have been nice if it was recalled by Sennheiser... So if you have one of them and live in Australia AND it does not sound as you think it should, enquire about it.

    Rode NTG8 or the MKH816 revival

    I bought an 8070, and I'm loving it. AND the boomie is loving it too. Sweet rejection, super directional and balanced. And the price is good to... Rode will be rode...

    Any advice for a mixer going to Africa?

    I have been in Namibia and South Africa... No problems whatsoever. Just enjoy your trip and send your doc for a long walk....

    Renaming files on a Fusion mirror card

    Yes, Normal mirror seems to be the go. I wish the Fusion had a software like Wave Agent to type in the metadata. Some of my descriptions look like a text message done by a 14 year old... Thanks for the replies
  15. Hi, I'm doing one of those shows that has a free-style clapper loader that changes slates at the speed of light. I find that I change the slate number on the primary card and it doesn't change on the mirror card. I guess that if I change the mirror mode to normal in stead of continuous (which I prefer) it would write the file after the renaming, therefore with the corrected slate number. Is there another way to rename the files in the mirror card other than that? Why does not mirror the changes made on the primary card as is a "continuous". The assistant editor is calling me too many times and is not good! Thanks, Manel
