  1. URSA make a product called Mini Foamies which are designed for this in mind. They are available in black and white.
  2. Hi Mano, From what we know here at Wendy's it could be one of two things or both: It might depend on the age of your Sankens as the Sanken COS11D mics have better RF shielding than the older Sanken COS11 mics. You will need to check to see if you have the 'D' variant to verify. The shield which goes to pin one in the 3 pin Lemo has possibly not been grounded to the shell. It is not required but it does help a lot. We typically wire a Sanken COS11 by splitting the center shield in half and putting half with white to pin 1 and black to pin 3. The other half we make sure is in contact with the shell of the Lemo. Hope this helps. -Nathan
  3. Will the Scorpio or 833 work with the Sound Devices CL-12 Linear Fader Controller? Although the CL-12 was originally designed for 6-Series field mixers and features an old protocol that is incompatible with the Scorpio’s or 833's open MCU, we are pleased to announce that we have achieved cross-compatibility. The Scorpio will support the CL-12, in addition to third party MCU controllers, in a future firmware update. Follow us on our social accounts or register your product to be updated when this firmware is available. My setup requires more AES inputs than the 4 channels the Scorpio or 833 allows, how can I use more AES sources? An accessory that will allow for up to 8 additional channels of AES (4 AES pairs) is in development. Stay tuned for future updates. Will you make a dedicated control surface designed specifically for the new 833 and Scorpio? Yes. We are currently developing a bespoke control surface to interface with the 833 and Scorpio. Follow us on our social accounts or register your product to be updated when this control surface is available.

  4. Those are the specs for a Sanken COS-11D with the P48 XLR barrel. Regards, Nathan.
  5. You haven't mentioned it and you may have already tried it but have you tried swapping over the base plate on the receiver?
  6. Hi Attila, With a DPA lavs it is screen to pin one and chassis then signal wire to pin three. This is the same for countryman lav mics too such as the B6. With a Sanken COS11 lavs it is white and screen to pin one and chassis then black to pin three. An MKE 2 would be blue and screen to pin one and chassis then red to pin three. I am not certain of Tram mics as it depends on the age as they can have different colors of wires. The newer versions have two black wires as well as the shield but one of the black wires is actually just a red wire with a little extra coating.
  7. The Lockit will start shipping in the Summer, no exact dates confirmed as of yet though.

    scorpio!

    Some better images if anyone is interested...
  10. The caps/grills for the DPA 6060/1 are available to purchase in packs of three for around £40+VAT. The product code is DUA9301-X. Swap the X with B for black and F for beige etc. Thanks, Nathan.
  11. I have spoken with Audio Ltd and can confirm that this is false, I think the author of the article may have got his wires crossed. Although owned by Sound Devices Audio Ltd will still operate as a seperate entity under their own brand for the forseable future. Never say never on joint future developments though.
  12. You would be perfectly fine with the small pouch. The only difference between the pouch sizes is that the large is pouch is deeper to accomodate taller transmitters. As Constantin mentions, if the transmitter feels loose OR if the person wearing the device will be doing someting quite physical such as jumping around then you may need to use the URSA Pouch Protectors which come as a pack of four.
  13. We have looked at the Viviana straps and compared them to the URSA straps. The material used in both is exactly the same and is also cut to the same thickness and width almost like they came out of the same factory. The only difference between the two is the that Viviana have the extra cable pocket and they are shaped differently at the ends. We only supply URSA straps.
  14. Hi Mike, Is this what you require? schematic.pdf
  15. It doesn't give much away sadly, I'm sure we will al hear some news about it soon though.

  17. The Zaxcom pattent is only valid in the US and the A10 transmitters shipped there will have the feature disabled via firmware. Audio Ltd will still opperate as Audio Ltd on UK soil and be kept as a seperate entity. As the products we are shipping to our customers here in the UK have the record feature enabled I would assume that the pattent is still un-enforcable against them and Audio Ltd have not informed us otherwise for anywhere else in Europe either. There is nothing stopping anyone flying abroad to buy them ouside of the US with the record feature though and bringing them back. Shure Distribution used to be the distributor of Sound Devices but that has now been taken over by Audio Ltd, nothing else in regards to resellers has changed since. As far as I am aware all UK Sound Devices repairs have to still be shipped to Germany for the service though but I am curious if they will now be providing services and repairs on Audio Ltd products.
  18. If anyone is passing through Manchester UK, we have a full A10 system here for demo purposes that you are welcome to come and try.
  19. Hi Grant, What lengths are you going with the cable??
  20. The Rycote WS4 Windshield (010604) is 440mm in length and is sold as part of a kit along with the Rycote Windjammer WJ4 (021504) which is 500mm in length. Usually Rycote have small labels inside the Windjammers that tell you the model such as WJ3, WJ4 etc. You should be able to use this information to work out which Rycote Windshield it is suitable for.
  21. Cheaper to repair/replace this connector too!
  22. We typically use heat shrink on most lav mics that have this issue, we only have the black varient but here is the link to the grey version which might blend in a little better: http://cpc.farnell.com/pro-power/13634gry/heatshrink-2-1-grey-2-40mm-100m/dp/CB10994 The general order code is 13634 for the black, it may be avilable in other colours than just black and grey if you look around.
  23. In regards to a future firmware update that would allow the unit to transmit and record at the same time, I have been told that this would not be physically possible and due to the patent wont happen. Even in other territories such as the EU this is the same case.
  24. As Patrick Southern has stated, I can also verify that I have been told that these do not infringe on any patent.
