  1. It's a combination of the very high meter input impedance and a miniscule capacitor leakage curent. As soon as you load either or both legs to pin 1 it will act as you expect. As a by the by, you don't need non polarised caps. Polarised with the + towards the phantom is fine. Rob

  3. Hi Gandy, have a look at these links, they should help. http://www.sqn.co.uk/old/e4s/4Sebook.html http://www.sqn.co.uk/old/e4s/4Sespec.html The IVe was available with a range of peak meters and also vu. The output clipping point is approx. +22dBu I think that the post fades were calibrated such that an input level achieving 0dBu balanced out with the fader at 12 o'clock gave -10dBu unbalanced out at the post fades. Rob
  4. The SQN5 has 5 iso outs (selectable as either pre or post fader), unbalanced L/R outs which can be mono'd plus 2 stereo balanced outs each switchable to mic or line level. Additionally, inputs 3/4/5 can be removed from the mix but remain at the iso out. Monitoring ... 2 x switch selectable auxilliary stereo pairs (individual level control) and internal stereo. Rob
  5. I think you're right Eric. It's too close not to have come from the same stable ... Cameron-Pace http://www.cameronpace.com/v2/index.php/whatwedo/equipment/243

  7. Matt, I may have misunderstood you but the 3:1 rule isn't applicable to mics on the same source. It's specific purpose is to limit the pickup of say mic B of source A and mic A of source B, and works on the principle that a mic 3x the distance from a source will experience approx. 10dB lower sound pressure than the closer one. This in turn reduces inevitable comb-filtering by limiting the impact of one signal on the other. Basically it is an amplitude tweak rather than time based. So basically, any two mics on the same source can be at any separation as long as their relative signal levels are at least 10dB apart when ultimately mixed. Phasey and time-delay issues are another bag and for all practical purposes are as difficult to manage as herding cats. As an engineer it pains me to agree with the recording bods, but as they say, 'if it sounds good, it is good'. Rob
  8. It's parallel. (If like numbered xlr pins are linked)
  9. Hi Jeff, I've been experiencing this for the last 3 or 4 days as well. Not a single other instance, only jwsound, and maybe 8 out of 10 attempts result in a redirection. Usually displays something like ad.leadbbolt, then googleanalytics and ultimately something about prettyunicorn.net Rob
  10. Not all! SQN mixers have a greater input range than Nomad, even with NeverClip. So when NeverClip allows the input to 'exceed 0dBFS' at the input, how do you prevent any of the outputs from clipping if not by reducing the trim, the fader or applying one of the multiple 'needless' limiters? SQNs have no input limiters. SQNs have no input or output transformers. I bet. Rob Finch SQN
  11. Hi Matt, if you set the channel input to Line level, this will place a 100 or 200 ohm resistor (dependent on model) across the mic amp input and will simulate a mic plugged in but without the additional mic generated noise. Rob
  12. It looks like ... Hirose SR30-10PF-6P(71) Plug Hirose SR30-10R-6S(71) Socket Rob
  13. The manual doesn't say that anyway. "Inputs 2 through 5 can only be routed to X1 and X2 pre-fade, while Inputs 1 and 6 can be routed to X1 and X2 pre- or postfade."
  14. From the website ... CPAntenna Uses Circular Polarity for Strong Reception The IWxCPA antenna is not like your traditional paddle or rod antenna commonly used with wireless microphone receivers and pro-audio antenna distribution systems. The antenna incorporates directional, Circular Polarization (CP) technology for both receiving and transmitting pro-audio wireless applications. We guarantee* that this antenna will reduce interference, reduce drop outs, help eliminate ‘swishing’ noise artifacts, improve RF signal to noise, and enhance reception of signals propagated through and around objects. http://www.kaltmancreationsllc.com/rf-test-equipment-html/invisiblewaves-html/cpa-antenna-html/
  15. I'm pretty sure (but don't take as gospel) that the PIX uses sample rate converters at the AES ins and effectively resamples and records at 48KHz/24 bit. So the PIX is the master.
