  1. I’d love to hear from anyone who has experience with the mixer. I’m a big fan of Sonosax pres but would love to keep my 688/CL12 setup (also, I can’t afford a big Sonosax mixer). I was thinking of this as a front end to my 688 and to put in a bag for smaller jobs.
  2. This topic might be a little outdated but I was curious if anyone had an opinion on the differences in the sound between the SX-S and SX-ST. I picked up an SX-S 8 a little while ago for practically nothing. So far I'm very happy with the sound and was just wondering what/if I'm missing out on ;). Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
  3. Hi people, I´m looking into getting a new recorder in the near future, I have a SD 633 witch has done me well. I find that I need more preamps. Since I live in Iceland there seems to be no way of getting my hands on a Sonosax recorder to try out, I know the SD recorders pretty well and expect the 888 to be good as most of their stuff. I´ve recived and worked on stuff recorded on the Sonnosax with the same mics that I normally use, and I was impressed by the sound quality. I´m just curious to hear if you people have any experiance with both Sonosax and SD, what you like what you don´t like etc. Since I´m often recording in rough weathers I´m a bit curious how the touch screen on the sonosax holds up in these conditions. Thanks in advance, Björn.

  5. Soundequip was recently appointed the Australian distributor for Sonosax, as mentioned under "Manufacturers & Dealers". As such, we have an learning curve in front of us. It would be really appreciated if members could suggest what Sonosax models you use for what applications, such as docos, reality TV, commercials, TV drama, theatrical release. There might be combinations of models that are suitable for a couple of different types of jobs you do. Thanks guys and girls. John Rowley Soundequip Australia

  7. Hi All, I'm in LA for work and have troubles with my Sonosax SX-R4. It doesn't start up after I just disconnected it from my Macbook Pro. It keeps hanging on the initialisation page (see included picture). Is there anything I can do to fix this myself? What could be the cause of the issue? Anyone ever experienced this? In the meantime I'm trying to get a hold of trew audio for support but I guess it's lunchtime. Thanks for any advice. Cheers, Arnoud
  8. There is a Sonosax SX-ST for sale on Ebay. This is the big Sonosax, not the "little" ES64 or one of the earlier models (all of them still excellent); it's the current version console mixer. This particular example has 9 inputs. So far there are no bids. The seller has a Buy-It-Now price of only $8000 but bids are accepted starting at $4000. (This is for a mixer that normally sells for about $25,000 new.) There are only about fourteen hours left in this auction period - it expires a bit after 11 AM tomorrow, April 10 (California time). Of course it may be re-listed. The seller is located in Lausanne, Switzerland. I apologize for the short notice. I've been turning things around in my mind trying to find some justification to purchase it for myself but it just makes no sense for me. It would just be a piece of sculpture. This is the Ebay link: http://www.ebay.com/itm/231897695703?_trksid=p2055119.m1438.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT I have no association with the sale or the seller. David
  9. From Sonosax, Sonosax SX-R4+ and Sonosax SX-AD8+ soon unveiled. Although these new equipments were announced for the end of 2014, they will not be available before April 2015. Innovative ideas having occurred during the year, their development have been somewhat delayed. Develop products of the highest quality using advanced technology and respond closer to the user's needs is a challenge SONOSAX has successfully met many times in the past; releasing these equipments on the market within the expected deadline is by far not always obvious. Despite these delays, we are pleased to announce that the new recorder SONOSAX SX-R4+ and the 8 channels preamp SONOSAX SX-AD8+ will be officially unveiled at Tokyo's InterBEE and during the SATIS in Paris. For those who could not attend these fairs we publish above a picture of the forthcoming SX-R4+
  10. Hi everyone On my cart I use a 788t and love it, but i was getting tired of carrying so much wait around when all i needed was 2-3 tracks for small jobs. Now I have a Sonosax MiniR82 for those jobs and sounds great. One thing is that it creates sequential file names, noting to do with metadata. I do prefer to give production files that are named after the scene and take, like in the case of the sound devices recorders. I found a workaround for it, by uploading the files to my computer and renaming them with WaveAgent. It works great and it's very quick, but it means I also have to carry my computer. Does any one does this and know an app for either android or iOS that can do the same? Ideally i would like to do it on my phone or on my iPad mini. Thanks a lot Diego
  11. Hi everyone, First of all let me introduce myself. I'm Arnoud Traa a sound designer/recordist from the Netherlands. I've been checking this forum for quite a while, too inform myself about new and older recorders and mic's. Recently I took the plunge and bought a second hand Sonosax SX-R4 to finally have a recorder that allows me to record 4 tracks with nice (really nice) preamps. I've been recording a lot and am very happy with it! But there seems to be a small issue with writing the record buffer in takes. Sometimes it's pitched up for the first few seconds, as if the sample rate has been changed or someting. I've only recorded in 96/24, so I'll check if it also happens in 48/24. But maybe this is common issue with the current firmware 4.2.437 Anyone here who knows what could be the source of this issue? Thanks in advance! Arnoud Traa
  12. Hello, I'm looking for input/opinions on the SX62R & or the SX-R4. I need a 6(with 6 pres) channel recorder that will do 24/192. I've read the other sonnsax thread but am looking for updated info. I can't "try" one out here in Canada as there isn't a single one in Toronto as far as I know. Specifically I'm interested in the quality/colour of the pres and how they compare to SD, Zaxx etc. I'm currently a SD user but unfortunately they don't offer a 6 pre solution that can record at 192 in a single unit. Thanks, John
  13. Howdy, I'm hoping for some technical guidance running a console mixer in front of a Nomad 8. I'm setup using both AES inputs and analog input on nomad to accomplish a post fade mono mix, and pre fade ISOs down the line. The setup is Sonosax 84 AES out -> Nomad AES in. Ch 1-8 digital out on sonosax is post-eq, pre-fade signal. That feeds directly to Digital in 1-8 on Nomad. The Sonosax digital out is ONLY pre-fade, post eq. In order to get a post fader signal I must run an analog bus (XLR) out of Sonosax and into analog input 1 to Nomad. This solves my routing a mono mix to the Nomad, my question is this. Am I facing any factors in delay or latency with this setup and A/D conversion? Recording to Card using Digital & analog inputs simultaneously, does anyone else have experience with this? I notice no delay between the mono mix track and the pre fade track on Nomad with this config, but I'm not sure on the science end of it. This is a new setup for me, any constructive suggestions/criticisms are welcome. Thanks, Jobo
