  1. I am confused as to what device is the time code master. In my world it would always be the master recorder in this case the MixPre 6. All Tentacles would be jammed to this standard. I think the HDMI TC firing the MixPre is for the one man band who wants better audio.

  5. How does a healthy young man get to the front of the line, when being over 65 was a priority, pray tell ? Asking for a friend.
  6. I bought NA for 2 channels of my 833 not knowing if I would ever use it on a production. The next job was 100% 1 boom so I also put the mic on a second channel, which other than keeping the levels matched I never listened to and printed it as an ISO. 2 days later when reviewing the tracks I checked it out and on a setting of -2 it blew me and the producer away. I played for another soundmixer who is more adept at audio post production and he was also impressed. He said he could beat it "if given enough time, but for just putting a check in a dialog box it is incredible". It is now part of my kit and I do not charge extra for it in my tiny marketplace. I do enjoy hearing the spots on TV. I would rather have NA than Dante at this point in my career. Post production mavens tell us they toss our mixes, so this is a good chance to give them something to beat. Thank you Sound Devices.
  7. Woodland Studio B, 1982 - Commercial I took a 17 piece group to this room with an old Neve - I told the assistant what we had coming in and when he asked how I wanted the room setup - I asked him how long he had worked there’d he said 3 years - ‘then you know your room and what works, help me impress this producer and we will all gain a client”. The only thing I requested was all large cap german mics - all day tracking I kept looking at the producer trying not to grin at each other - Neve’s forever https://mixdownmag.com.au/features/rupert-neve-exploring-the-audio-architects-everlasting-legacy/
