    Zaxcom ZMT3-Flex.

    Wow! I wonder what the actual size is. The picture makes it look rather large, but I suppose thats deceptive. Microdot inputs huh? Interesting new direction for Zaxcom... "perfect for" dpa mics... -Mike

    DPA 4060 Ambience Recording - Wind Protection

    I have a couple of the Bubblebee Windbubbles for just this purpose. They’ve worked great so far, but I haven’t had them out in anything but moderate wind as of yet. -Mike

    Windscreen Rycote or BUBBLEBEE Industries

    I’ve not done a head to head comparison but my impression is that the spacer is more effective and sounds better (esp. with the fur removed) than a classic softie, and not quite as good as a traditional basket + windjammer. Side note: I wanted the spacer bubble for my Neumann RSM190 stereo mic, but the mic does not fit in any of their standard models. When I reached out to Bubblebee about that they gladly made me a custom one to fit (using measurements I sent them of the mic). They turned it around in just a few weeks and it didn’t cost me any more than an off the shelf one. Rycote’s customer service is great as well of course, but I was really impressed with how Bubblebee went above and beyond. -Mike

    Windscreen Rycote or BUBBLEBEE Industries

    I have a Spacer bubble and the short fur doesn’t seem terribly more effective in medium-heavy wind than the spacer by itself to me. You will definitely want the long fur too. -Mike

    Mixpre remix

    If you have the Musicians plugin I believe you can use that to load files into a project from the card. If not I’m not sure there’s a way to load files back onto the MixPre. -Mike

    Ktek Squid vs. Rycote XLR holder MK II?

    I use the Squid with a Zaxcom ZMT3 Phantom. Works great, no complaints. -Mike

    Wingman does act as a virtual keyboard AFAIK. I certainly use it to rename channels, edit file names, enter metadata, etc., in addition to starting and stopping recording. Is there something else a keyboard can do that Wingman can't? I've never needed a keyboard personally. I love the support for fader controllers! Thats what I've been hoping for since the MixPre's were released! I can't say I'm too fond of the specific controllers they support yet though - they all seem to have very short throw, plastic faders. I'd love one with some nice long throw faders on it, so a big +1 to adding more options and/or opening up the protocols. -Mike
