  1. Hi, I spent the whole day testing the new SD833. Not in real life yet, but rather an introduction and discovery of the new functions. First thing, no more Quickboot, but fortunately, the initialization of the recorder only takes 8 seconds, rather acceptable for this type of equipment. Regarding the battery life, I tested the 833 with an MS couple of Schoeps microphones powered in 48 Volts, and a Wisycom MCR42 receiver connected in AES 3 on inputs 1 and 2. My Audioroot distribution shows a power consumption of more or less 12 W, or about 6 hours with a fully charged 98 Wh battery. In
  2. Hi, It seems as of this week the Sound devices CL-12 is discontinued... Why is that so?
  3. Hello everyone! One of the great uses for MixPre 6 that I see is a very portable Ambisonics recorder for ambiences and other SFX. The golden rule of SFX recording is to sort them and supply with SoundMiner metadata as early as you can because otherwise you'll hardly ever find the recordings (hello my over 50 GBs from university times). So, is it technically possible to make a version of Wingman app that would have metadata fields (I'll name them the way as SM does) such as Description, BWFDescription, Comments and maybe some other SM fields? It can be much more handy to fill these
  4. RIP. Little fella.. Such a useful tool
  5. Hi, I'm currently looking at options for a 4 x input stereo mixer. I currently use an SD 302 in front of a 702T. It's a combo that I'm very happy with for the majority of my work (mostly interviews, voiceover work, SFX gathering, and the occasional dramatic exercise, although nothing too large scale, obviously). I really only got a mixer initially to ride levels on a mono track, usually using a single, boomed mic. But the interface has been invaluable to me for its great metering, limiters, etc., and the SD has never hiccuped. I've grown into it happily. I do occasionally fi
  6. Anyone encountered this? the meters on the ISO's look to be recording as per usual but all monitor outputs are outputting static including pfl's. Tried a cut/re roll as well as full power cycle. firmware 4.50
  7. I recently purchased a MixPre 3 and was hoping to use my RODE SmartLav+ and RODE SmartLav and was pretty surprised when they both didn't work. I just want to make sure before I sell one of my SmartLavs that they indeed will not work with my MixPre 3. I also have a TASCAM DR60D that I used the lavs with successfully so I dont understand why the Smartlavs wont work with the MixPre 3. I've been trying with the adapter since the mics are TRRS, can anyone tell me why the SmartLavs wont work with the MixPre 3 thanks.
  8. I enjoyed this "short" :-)) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NltCxxyqFUU Waiting for the next installment. I think this has the potential to become a dark, heavy, action drama with car chase scenes and international intrigue... Episode One: These 2 poolside heavies plant Audio Ltd. wireless mics into Zaxcom headquarters in order to unlock the secret code ..... on second thought, maybe a comedy series would be the way to go....ha ha! The MixPre 6 sounds good to my ear. Anyone know which wireless models, lavs and camera were used? Cheers, Dave
  9. Is there a way to marry multiple takes into a single take (remove take markers) on the 664?
  10. I just purchased used sound devices 664 and was wondering if a SanDisk extreme pro 64 GB is worth the extra money compared the SanDisk extreme, the speed writing is almost the same, what else requirement (in addition the commercial) is really important to consider?
  11. Let me be the first to offer congratulations to the team at Sound Devices for their win at the CAS Awards for the Product of the Year. Great job by a great team. And congratulations to every sound mixer honored by a nomination or an award - yours is a tough job and the end results are always to impressive. Keep up the good work!

  12. Outputing from my SD 633 X3/X4 outputs to a Lectrosonics UM400 for IFB. Straight cable is a little too hot. Needs a pad of say -20 db. Handy with a soldering iron. What value are you guys using for resistors R1 and R2?. Diagram below. Don't need a lesson in Ohms law, just too lazy to create a spreadsheet on my own for something that I'm sure a dozen of you guys have done. TIA Or is there enough gain if I wire the TA5 into the lectro line level? I should have known to look on the Lectro site first. Found this. Since I can't delete this entire post, I'll leave it hear
  13. http://ironfilm.co.nz/leaked-is-a-new-sound-devices-mixpre-10t-coming-soon/ The clues appear to point in that direction! Would be a 10 track recorder priced somewhere between the MixPre-6 and 633, I assume.
  14. Hi, I am having a spring clean of my surplus gear stored in the garage, and was wondering where best to list it for sale. I have a 788SD which was my backup recorder as well as a bunch of LECTRO gear - multi-couplers, VR Venue, Transmitters, COMTEC gear, plus a SOUNDFIELD SPS200 Mic with breakout cable etc. I don't think this sort of kit would suit EBAY, any ideas?
  15. Has anyone has serious issues with the LCD screen on their 664? I turned mine on a couple days ago and the screen was almost monochromatic. The color was intermittent, then red lines started to cover certain parts of the screen. The issues hasn't repeated it's self since then, but I'm sure it'll just give out while working on set if I don't get it fixed. Unfortunately, my mixer about 5 months OUTSIDE of the 2 year warranty and Sound Devices won't cover the cost of repair or the parts. I'm curious if anyone has had similar issues? Pictures are attached. Thanks! Damen
  16. Hi All, Wondering if anyone has done a music tracking session into a DAW using a Sound Devices MixPre 6/3? Thinking of retiring an Apogee Duet Firewire and wonder how the MixPres sound for music tracking. It's ability to do double duty is very attractive if the studio sound is in the Duet league or better. I've seen a video or two demo-ing recording music live-off-the-floor direct into the MixPre - more curious as to how it sounds as DAW interface as compared to others in it's price-point. Would love to hear a full layered session (clean instruments - not distorted guitar) with a w
  17. Open letter (dated 10th November 2015) to Ed Capp, Vice President of Sales & Marketing at Sound Devices, LLC regarding the UK pricing of the recently announced CL-12 Dear Ed, Thank you firstly for your reply on JWSound (http://jwsoundgroup.net/index.php?/topic/26269-sound-devices-cl-12-pricing-survey/). It is encouraging to hear that Sound Devices want their international customers to have access to your equipment at a fair price - because at the present time, from my perspective, it is anything but. I would like to first make the point that I have been a dedicated Sound Devices user fo
  18. Looking for the right upgrade path I think we have to establish the needs clear before asking what's better, because there is no one perfect for everyone. So here are my needs: - Best Sound possible. My main constraint is NOT the number of channels or how beautiful are the menus BUT the sound quality for post-production. - I'm a solo sound mixer / boom operator, no help for now. - Never recorded more than 4 channels for now. But I dont' mind to have a couple more... just in case. - Been using 744T + SD442. - Bag a little heavy and I don't really like the menus on
  19. Im looking to make a water proof enclosure for my 633, an np battery and an src receiver. Ideally it would have a clear panel to see meters through. Does not need to be deep water submersible as it will likely be on a kayak deck. Has anyone messed around to make something like this? Opening the lid to adjust gain is probably fine and I will use wingman to roll and cut. Cheers
  20. Hey folks, long time lurker first time poster. [edit: I actually forgot that I posted a few times on here before, so this isn't strictly true] I currently have a Sound Devices 552, but I'm making the sideways move into a 744T, since at the moment my work is mostly about recording rather than mixing. My question is about the case - at the moment I have a Portabrace which fits the 552 perfectly...I'm not sure which model it is exactly. I'm wondering if a 744T would fit in there too? What is the difference in size between the two machines? Cheers!
  21. I'm just curious if folks have seen a marked improvement in battery life on the 744T when an SSD was used. Thanks, Michael http://rabbitearsaudio.com
  22. I just bought a Sound Devices 702 --- delivery should be by or on December 2nd, 2016. After using Zoom H4N, and Marantz PMD661 (modified by Oade Brothers) I am moving up due to the wanting and needing the very quiet pre-amps of the Sound Devices. I am a Radio Producer for a Public Radio Station in the U-S , focusing on in the field interviews with scientists. Everything I produce and air, has to have great sound quality from my guests, PLUS, my radio features are very rich in natural sounds. To keep the quality of my future projects as high as possible, I plan on using my SD702 a
  23. My workhorse SD 442 locked up after 12 years of service and all meter LEDs started pulsing. I suspected the IC chip controlling the menu functions because after tap dancing through the menu buttons the mixer seemed back, the tone oscillator worked and meters registered unity, but couldn't bring back the menu functions and as soon as I tested with mics plugged back in... back to malfunctioning, passing no audio and all LEDs pulsing. Now I can't even do that, at haven't tried and pulled out the backup (always carry a backup). NOW SUSPECT that the memory that retains menu settings is wiped o
  24. Hello friends, Ben here from Vancouver, finally joined this great group here's my first post. I have a friend who can sell me a 664 that's in great shape for a good price. I'm also going to grab a Cl-12 at the same time. My question is this: should I wait and purchase a 688 instead? I am aware of the technical differences of the 2 units but want to hear from people who use one (or both) in the field. What do you think? Is the 688 so much ( about 3k more for me) better or will the 664 do the job just fine? Thanks!
