  1. I was a very early adopter of DAT, starting in 1991. Despite a great many stories of unreliability from many folks on both sides of the pond, I never once had an issue in the 10 years I used DAT. In 2001 I changed to the NAGRA V. A beautiful machine, but it suffered from their choice of the awful ORB drive, which took unreliability to a whole new level. A colleague who bought his at the same time, eventually sent it back to Nagra and got a refund. They later fitted a proper hard drive and I used it until 2004, when I went Zaxcom and never looked back I used most types of DAT recorder, from Panasonic SV260, through Stelladat, Sony TC-D10 and finally HHB. Never tried Fostex. I always backed up on a second machine, initially a Nagra 4S and then another DAT. Not because of worries about reliability of recording, but more about a whole days rushes being on one tiny cassette, which could fall down a drain on wrap on a dark night..

  3. Well it is still an issue for me. Just because it is approved for download by apple doesn't mean it is bug free. I have had extensive email discussion with Eric at Movieslate and have saved the history data file and reinstalled the App. It launches ok but when I restore the data file it crashes and will not launch again. I have sent him the data file to examine and we will see if that is causing the issue. We have an 8 hour time zone difference so will see later today. Roger Slater AMPS Malvern UK
  4. The problem doesn't seem to be with version 7.6, as I upgraded to it on my IPhone 5, running IOS6 and it runs fine (fortunately), its related to IOS8
  5. Just updated 7.6 from the App Store and it will no longer work on my ipad. Every time I try to open it , it freezes at the logo screen and then closes.
  6. At least on film we were limited to 10 minutes by the length of a mag, but I once boomed a 7 minute shot for which we did 11 takes...
  7. Robert Farr the re-recording mixer is a highly regarded professional with 20+ years experience, who coincidentally picked up the BAFTA Award for best sound for a different production the same week this story broke. You might want to do a bit of research before you slag off another sound professional. The story has moved away from being a 'sound issue' and into problems of mumbling and bad acting

  12. I did some second unit days on Gosford Park and was there for the big banquet scene. The movie was recorded in the traditional Bob Altman way, with everyone wired. At that time (pre DEVA 4 and 5), Peter Glossop was recording on a pair of DA88s to get 16 tracks and as I recall was running 12 or 15 Audio Ltd Wireless channels, plus a couple of booms.
