    Anyone heard Equator Audio D8 Studio Monitors?

    I have the d5's and d8's. I love them both. Low end response the d8 is much better than the d5. With that said they will bottom out with LFE sounds. I'm actually looking at the q10's right now, the low end response is down to 32hz, which would be much better suited for LFE material. Hope that helps. Cheers -Kevin

    Tascam DR-680 Busman Mod

    The busman modded DR-680 was my first multi track field recorder, and it served me well until i was able to afford my nomad. I never had a problem with the noise floor of the pre's, so i was able to record lower, and raise the gain in post without noise issues. Chris Johnson, the owner of busman, was a joy to work with. Here' what he told me his mod accomplishes, "My mod improves the overall sound quality including opening up the soundstage and lowering the noise floor while giving better transient detail without harsh high end smear."

    DPA 4060 samples please!

    https://soundcloud.com/zenandtheart/dpa-4060-sound-collage Here's a sound design collage i created with the 4060's. I bought the exact stereo pair you're thinking of getting. I've been very pleased with them. Great value! Enjoy

    Thoughts on 702 or USBPre -> Tascam DR-680

    I ran the Tascam DR-680 In the Amazonian Rain Forest. Worked like a champ. I also used the DR-40 in the rainforest, I ended up forgetting it on the side of a hill while I was recording ambiences. When I came back the next morning, It was still recording!

Great video that goes into the nuances of our craft.

    equator audio D5 - amazing speakers

    It should be noted too, that these speakers will soon be increasing in price. Not sure what they're going to down the road, but for $300 per pair, they're one hell of a steal. Highly recommended.

    A San Francisco Sound Mixer's Mixer

    Hi Paul, I too, am an SF State BECA grad who mixes sound. It'd be great to get together for beers with all of you and catch up. Save me a seat! Looking forward to this.
  12. You'd be surprised how impressed talent are when you put their lectro lav in to sleep mode with new endian's Lectro RM. It's a great tool. Quiztones is also pretty rad. pop on your head phones and train your ears to hear frequencies better. More geared to music production/mixing but a cool little app none the less.
