    Abisonic Microphones

    thank you all for all that info. I have no experience with ambisonics, but I would like to try it in new projects. which ambisonic system do you think is the best choice for being in a backpack, mostly for recording ambiences and sfx? i´m thinking about docs and so, so it would be one man with a backpack doing it all (portable, durable, easy to mount, good sounding, with wind accesories...)

    Abisonic Microphones

    What about the delicacy of the ambisonic microphones?, I mean... you can take care with your mics and be extremely careful with them, but... filming in location is a hard task. some times you have dust, or wet, or heavy vibrations in the truck in the transportations... how hard or delicate are they? I´m interested specially in how delicate is the Sennheiser Ambeo VR?

    Filming in Dubai

    Thank you all for your comments. well, good manners and good behavior are a MUST. My bigger worries are about the legal frecuency range for wireless mics, how to face a recording in the desert with 43ºC or more... I´ll go with a Zax Nomad, it will be ok working with such temperatures? the can of compressed air is a good point, I think I´ll have to talk with the local fixer for that.

    Filming in Dubai

    Hi! I don´t know if this is the right place to post this thread... but I don´t know if there´s a more appropiate place to talk about "asking for advice to filming in a foregine country". I may have a recording in Dubai in the short term, probably in the next few weeks, but it could be in a month or so. It will be a local fixer to help me, but I don´t have his contact yet and I have some things I would like think about and preparing my setup. I would like to know if any of you have experience filming in this country or recording in the desert. Does anyone know about legal wireless frecuencies there or any experience working with wireless microphones? any experience in Dubai or any recomendation? any advice will be greatfully welcome Cheers!!

    Zoom F8

    So... I have already checked it with a volt meter. And, yes. F8 stops feeding the microphone with the pantom power when you disable a track for recording. the only thing is that it takes a while to go from 48v (in fact it has 46v) to 0v. When you enable the track it starts to phantom power again. I think it has good reasons to do it. You can unplug the microphone safely and the power consumption of the batteries is optimized.

    Zoom F8

    I think it makes sense... You could disable one track to unplug safely a phantom powered microphone. Another plus, if phantom power turns off in a disabled track the consumption of your batteries would be optimized

    Zoom F8

    Hi. old topic but I have a doubt about the Zoom f8 that I can´t solve reading the manual or searching in the web (maybe I´m not searching the appropiate words...) the question is: when the phantom power in one track is activated, is it turned off automatically when you push the button of "disable for recording" of that track? when you disable for recording one track it goes mute, but i don´t know if it stops giving phantom power to the microphone. regards!

    The Ultimate Wireless Frequency List

    good document, thanks for sharing suso. as long as I know... the frecuencies with the red background belongs to TDT and 4G. all the rest are still in use. the frecuencies inside the red rectangle will be assigned to TDT, 4G, 5G... , probably in 2020

    DIY Electret

    No powering? I didn't try that, thougth it wont work. I'm agree, they are like most of the capsules mounted in the devices mentioned. They worked for me in that case. When I did it I thought about how to isolate the capsule in order to put it underwater and listen what happens and how it works. (Never did it already) I had tried it before with a piezo and it didn't work very well.

    DIY Electret

    I did something similar. I built two capsules (with panasonic transducers, don´t remember the model) with intended low sensibility for an specific use where I had to manage high sound level with lots of peaks. I made it for plugin in a lectro wireless system. they did their job, a take with a close point of view (for sound definition) perfect to mix with the boom. notice that this transducers needs to be powered, I think it´s called "5v plug-in power".

    old mixer from an old mixer

    thanks for the info. i had no idea about the opaque resin... what a thing! there´s some issues then... electronic components, faders aging poorly, the opaque resin... most of the info I have read in the web is about the high quality of the mic´s pres, and I am tempted to try it cause the offer is a bargain. I have seen that there´s a guy (or team) in switzerland that still service stella´s devices (http://www.audioprojpg.com) but I guess that puting a hand on AMI will cost like a house in the shore... i´ll try to have a chance to check the unit, and then decide any coments and info are welcom regards

    old mixer from an old mixer

    Hi. not sure if this is the right thread to post, it´s an old thread and my query is about an specific mixer. I found this thread diving in the web serching for some info, maybe some of the members writing here can help me. if this is not the place where i should write, let me know and I´ll start a new topic. my situation is... I know a guy who offers me an old stella ami 48 for a good deal. I can´t check it for myself cause it´s in a city far from me. I have some pics and the device looks pretty well, very good consevation. I have been reading a while and I know some of the problems that it can have (like noisy faders cause the age, unbalanced outputs, many chances to have to send it to switzerland for cheking or adjust...) I have been reading about the mic pres, and most of the times it says that they are very good, except one post in this very thread. the information in the web is not plenty and in some cases contradictory. There´s no way to find the manual. my point is, would this device be useful nowadays? is it worth at any way? I´m thinking on it "useful" terms, not about collection thanks and best regards
