  1. Mic cable. i am looking for something like the kevlar cable stock used with the CCM stuff. i am probably pushing my luck but you never know unless you ask!
  2. I know you can buy Schoeps cable stock but i am wondering if there are some similar alternatives. i would like to spend a little less money if i can.
  3. I was at the 664 product demo on Monday at LS. i took some pictures of the 664 if people are interested. I dont think SD will increase the SR past 48k. If they did they would cannibalize sales of the 788t which they have stated many times the 664 is not a replacement to the 788t. herronsound.com/?p=1837
  4. i dont know if you LA folk have noticed this but i bugs me a ton! CBS local news uses a whoosh for their transitions between stories when they dont cut back the anchors. There is nothing wrong with that expect they use the same whoosh to announce breaking news. from a sound design stand point it pulls what i call the little boy who cried wolf. unless you are paying attention you dont care about the cue. NBC LA uses a swoosh that is clearly a bad sounding Mp3 being played too loud.
  5. This is happening because the audience no longer gives a Ship!! if people complained enough we mite see networks providing more QC. but when we have teenagers listening to their music on youtube. TD's now think that is standard quality. i just saw a segment for "trend" (what a joke) on NBC LA where to the report pulled a tech crunch clip from online. claimed he interviewed the guy and then proceeded to cover up the tech crunch logo with a oversize NBC LA banner! so if we are at the point where we lie about our sources and will let social media be acceptable standard for reporting the news. we mite as well let the crew from Entertainment Tonight just report it for us! we have had insanely bad calls like the one we saw with Green Bay this last weekend happening to audio for years now. Audio's replacement techs are a joke since audio is only one of the 10 things these guys have been hired to do. I would consider most of the local news casters here in LA to no longer be true professionals in respect to their trade. we are just one social media report away from public access!
  6. That tells me there is some sort of network issue like the printer is set to DHCP rather then having a static IP.
  7. The golden years are gone in Los Angeles. The law markers have just made it a very unfriendly place to do business. this is not new news at all! nor is it different then the struggles of joblessness in the nation. honestly it really doesnt make much sense to shot in CA when there are other booming " we'll do anything to get you here " business friendly states. CA is on the road to FUBAR pretty much every industry with high taxes and crippling cap and trade laws that are coming. hell they are going to make driving a car here a crime!
  8. interns or staff, union or non-union projects shouldnt be under staffed to the point of degradation! people need to be paid fairly all around.
  9. recording fire arms. ammo is kinda pricey depending on what you are firing. it helps to have good limiters for the first few test shots. also during some BG recordings. you sometimes have surprises. they are just safeties but i honestly wanted to see how they preformed. Agreed, the 744t limiters sound better. SD pretty much added a compressor here.
  10. i came from a 744t and i guess i took the limiters for granted. I also didnt know the limiters were digital in the 788t. i always thought the limiters were digitally controlled analogue limiters interesting..
  11. im at 96k guys. i bet that is the reason why. Now the question comes. why does i cant i use limiters at 96k! it seems like a very odd limitation.
  12. Playing around with my new 788t i noticed the limiters were crossed out. I cant figure why they would be disable. anyone have some hints. Please do not say read the manual. i just spent the last hour searching how to fix this. Thanks
  13. i have been wanting to build my own foley pits and surfaces for a long time now. The issue i have is that space is limited since i live in a apartment.
  14. I would personally pass on a LD mic on set unless it has a hyper pattern i can choose. you mite get thicker sound but you are also going to pick up tons of BG's. When i am doing VO or ISDN and the 87 is requested. i always run the talent close and i can still hear the room.
  15. That is like me telling the news paper to stop printing ads but it is a waste of space, paper and cause people to waste their money on things they don't need. Which results in putting people in a bad financial place. its BS! We are very impressionable beings and i would say the paper is equally as guilty since they are telling you when and where we can go see these movie. everyone is a critic these days but no one want to be told they are wrong!
  16. So i have received a updated price list. ramallo is correct you are better off buying a Nomad with beta prices these high. I hope this helps others! 4minxpricelist2012.pdf
  17. Very pricy! how old is this pricing?
  18. You are right on the mark there Matt. But i would still like to see what they got and get a bead on their mystery pricing / availability. The deck does look good feature wise. I started a thread " Whats SD doing these days " to point out the huge cost / feature gap the 788 vs 702 -744 has. Sadly people did not get the point and i am not so sure Jon cared all to much either. and although i really liked my 744 i think the 4minx mite suit may needs a little more. I like to explore all my options.
  19. Thanks. Not a bad write up. i wish the company would no respond to my E-Mails.
  20. i am looking for a new deck and I want to revisit the Aeta Systems 4MINX which had a vapor release a couple of years ago. I am interested to know if there is anyone on JW has battle tested the 4minx indoors or outdoors .
  21. 702 - 744 are dated but still relevant and great recorders. if anyone actually read my first post they would see what i mean. Yes pro audio is a very small market but that doesnt mean that a manufacture cant consolidate product lines and streamline available choices. SD has done this 442. basically look at the 744 and compare it the 788 feature set. now look at the difference in cost which is $1900.

  23. i think they should drop the 702 line, add two more mic pres to the 744 and add a deck that competes directly with the nomad. and maybe shift the pricing downward a little so the Somad fits in at the top. this was the original point i was trying to make. SD is great stuff but their is a huge gap in the recorder lineup.
