    Sound Devices new firmware - w/ Auto Mute !!

    Ah ok, I see, that makes sense. Most directors I‘ve met want the agency feed silent between takes, but theirs either always on, or always off, but of course they’re all different. Somewhat...

    You could also send the director the feed from the Main L/R out, right?

    Sound Devices recorders - which way to go?

    By using this brilliant merge software: https://www.videotoolshed.com/product/bwfmerge/ This even allows you to not include selected channels from a poly wav, so you could leave out the sub mix from the slave recorders.

    Sound Devices recorders - which way to go?

    It‘s what I did as I described earlier in this thread. To be honest, when I really thought I needed to solo something mid-take I would re-plug my headphones. Between takes I could do it with the faders. On another project with a similar setup, I actually routed the headphone output from 2 into recorder 1 in addition to the regular mix output. I didn’t need all the tracks on that one. I only routed the headphone mix into the X1/X2R (which is what I listened to), but didn’t record its iso. With the mix feed I routed that into L/R and an iso. Now I could solo every track with one or two button pushes.

    I bought NEUMANN KU100

    It does, doesn’t it? You and the others are probably right, though, just coincidence. (I‘m very well, Vin, thanks! Rebuilding my cart at the moment, which is always fun. How are you?

    And that’s not the same one who started this topic?

    Yes, I find those recordings tend to create nicer results. Nicer on speakers that is. Dummy head recordings only really work when listening on headphones, where they can sound spectacular. But on speakers... not so much.

    Sonosax SX-R4+

    That demonstrates nothing. Something needs to be connected for any meaningful test

    DPA 4017C

    Ok, that seems to indicate that the DPA C preamp is noisier with the HM than the B preamp

    I am STUNNED np50 dual charger

    I am also reminded of the sound-room and maybe others who test and handpick the Oktava mics they sell. I don’t know if they sell them for a bit more, but still... As Oktavas qc was abysmal this testing process was very welcome. I think, anyway. Never bought one myself.

    DPA 4017C

    That seems to make so much sense! That noise it made certainly sounds like it could be due to phantom power. So, when you say „fixed“ is the C preamp still noisier than the B version, but has lost that strange noise? That’s how mine is now... But I wish that more regular noise were gone, too

    I am STUNNED np50 dual charger

    Oh that’s good to know. Aside from anything, WrineX builds a really great multibay charger for NP-50 style batteries. Anyone in the market for one should contact him. And me for real world experience, if needed
  13. Hi Bouke, what I meant was that I could edit the filename itself. Not necessarily in the metadata. Although there could be an option (like on SD's WaveAgent) to rename the file following the name field in the metadata. Recorders will often name files according to their own convention, like 33528-20192401_001. The 001 part being the takename. It'd be useful if I could rename the first file as for example: Sc23-car_001. The program would rename all following files like that, but keep the take counter. (thanks for the trial, I hope I'll find some time in the next few days to try it out).

    DPA 4017C

    I had pretty much exactly the same issue with my C Preamp. I had to send it to DPA for them to check. They returned it and said they checked it and everything was fine. Still had the same issue. Sent it to DPA again, this time accompanied by the recording of the noise and this time they sent me a new C Preamp. To be honest (even though I absolutely love the 4017) this is still noisier than the B preamp, but it's only hiss, and not this weird crackling sound. Still, I will now only use the C preamp when I really have to for more space. It's a shame though, because on paper it's the better preamp. I tried this with 5 different transmitters, including a HM and a HMa. It would only occur with both the Lectro tx, even though they were years apart. Very strange occurence.

    Sonosax SX-R4+

    You think you can’t hear it because it’s so quiet or because it’s so high? What happens when you pitch down?
