    Walkie interference with PSC RF Six Packs

    4 Watts is very much. In proximity will kill every RF as well as every unbalanced audio signal.
  2. I just phoned the director and he said that the band will show up with just guitar, bass and single vocals 😄 So no problem, I can use the 633. Thank you anyway!

    sound blankets berlin

    Kortwich not? You can try calling Zeigermann in Hamburg or Ambient recording in Munich. That's both of course too far away, but maybe they know someone. German sound scene isn't that big.
  4. Thank you a lot, guys! I think I'll go with the right knee mic, OH and kick! It's just a small part of a doc I've been working for, about a celeb, mainly consisting of talking heads. The celeb also performs with his band from time to time, he's no professional musician. No audience, no foh mixer, just a rehearsel situation. As already said, the doc will be for TV only, so just stereo and no 5.1 or so.
  5. Hi experienced soundies, what would you do? I have to record a live performance of a small rockband for a tv documentary. Three men: lead guitar singer, bass guitar and drumset. Luckily I have got all mikes for the different purposes. But for several reasons the only recorder I can use is the Sound Devices 664. I will record iso tracks and leave all EQs, dynamics, reverb, stereo etc. to post. My only issue is the limited amount of just six mic preamps. This is my plan: - Overhead L - Overhead R - Bassdrum - Toms? - Bass guitar - Lead guitar - Lead Vocals (wireless handmike, line level to CH7) - Backing vocals (wireless line lvl to CH8) How would you solve this? Normally, a recording of a drumset requires a minimum of five channels, but I haven't got the opportunity as you can see. Thanks in advance, guys! Greets! Mungo

    664 timecode question

    Thank you. 24Hr Run always selected has been working great for me. Very convenient solution.

    664 timecode question

    But will it still be accurate when you start the machine again after a power off, within that period of time the blue TC has been flashing?

    NEW: Ambient | NanoLockit

    Used the Nano's recently on a Sony PMW-200 handheld ENG camera. It had a good place next to the BNC plugs on the right side of the camera (fittet with velcro) and the camera operator was quite happy with it! It was not possible to power the Nano with the USB output of the cam. Well, it was possible, but the camera refused to record, recognizing the Nano as some unkown USB drive.

    Cardiod Microphones

    Recommendation: Audio Technica AT875R and of course a matching Rycote fur. Very much mike for the money.

    Updating firmware on Sound Devices 633?

    Very rare issues reported from colleages even with fw 4.51: - machine freezes and can't be shut down, sometimes long push of menu button helps - machine resets to factory default These issues were reported as already present on other fw versions, so nothing to lose.
  11. I have heard of system crashes on the 664 and the 633 where only a firmware "update" (installation of the current firmware once again) brought the machine back to normal behaviour. So it may be useful to have the file in the kit.

    Deity Microphones going Wireless

    - power supply by AA, USB and Hirose, nothing exotic - phase stable stereo over two links - transmitter's battery life in minutes on receiver's display - true diversity - wideband

    Mixer/recorder - changing the stereo width

    Hi! You can use the trim knob of the 2nd MS linked channel for that on Sound Devices 633/664/688.

    633 track names into Premiere Pro

    Thank you, I didn't know that. Very hard to find though. Picture of Metadata: Sorry that Premiere is set to German.

    AETA Audio Systems stops the production of 4MINX

    Had the possibility to test a 4Minx about 5 years ago. It has great preamps and nice options, but 20-40 seconds powering up was too long for my bag work. SD did already better at that time.
