- Current playback: Choose the file - switch play - you hear the file. To exit from playback, you have to go into menu and press "exit from playback". Is there a shortcut or something else to make this routine disappear?

Hit play and the file list pops up. That's one step into the menu less. :)

Hi Jule,

 

Yeap, that's the way we go to playback mode. To exit from playback mode we have to hit the touchscreen and choose "exit from playback"; that's the problem.

 

PS. Mic preamp and headphone amp from this little machine is amazing.

In "Rec-ready" mode, toggle the play/rec switch to the left (play) will bring you to file list to choose the track you want to playback.

To exit playback mode, toggle the play/ record switch to the right (rec) to return to red-ready mode. 

 

Hope it helps

After reaching out to Sonosax again, I've heard back that they've been able to replicate the issue under some conditions. The case has been sent to the hardware engineer, who is quite busy these days/months, presumably with the new preamp/AD. 

 

It seems like I'm the only individual who has run up against this, but I'll report back once Sonosax has concluded their investigation.

Sonosax comes through!

 

After looking into this issue, It turns out that the peak occurs due to an odd interaction with a non-stock, modified mike body I've been using. The standard stock body of the microphone presents no such problem.  

 

Thanks to the Sonosax team for looking into this.

Good news for DANTE users.

 

The Dante option: announced, postponed, long awaited, it arrives this time for good. Our card now operates according to the criteria we had defined, particularly in terms of consumption. Powered by PoE, it is the least energy consuming on the market and will therefore not shorten the autonomy of your batteries too much. You will be able to connect the multi-channel interface to your SX-AD8+ before the end of the year. The SX-R4+ will have to wait until early 2020 to click its RJ45.

Hi there,

I have the SX-R4+ in my wish list, I read all I could find in terms of manuals and few videos on youtube 

I know nobody in Rome that has one and apparently no dealers or rentals around.

What I'm missing are some details about the O/P card 

It adds 4 aes O/P or 2 balanced O/P or 4 unbalanced but:

are those O/P independent from the ones already there? How can I assign them? couldn't find anything online

Once installed will I find in the routing menu all these options?

How are set the various options? meaning the 4 aes or the 2 balanced or the 4 unbal, it's a menu option or like a dip switch on the card?

 

Thanks

Hi, here are our answers:

"are those O/P independent from the ones already there?"

"Once installed will I find in the routing menu all these options?"

Yes. The output menu is where you can configure the option outs. See https://www.sonosax.ch/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/audio_outputs.svg

"How can I assign them?"

The same way you assign any output, monitor out or even mix. See https://www.sonosax.ch/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/monitoring.svg

"How are set the various options? for the next steps.meaning the 4 aes or the 2 balanced or the 4 unbal, it's a menu option or like a dip switch on the card?"

All configuration is done in the user interface (touch screen). The configuration is done for each output pairs (OPTION 1-2 and 3-4). For 1-2, you can choose BALANCED, UNBALANCED or AES. If you choose BALANCED, OPTION 3-4 is not available. Otherwise, OPTION 3-4 can be configured as UNBALANCED or AES.

The block diagram on the option card product page can give you a good idea of that option: https://www.sonosax.ch/product/024281/

I couldn't wait for a better answer!!! Thanks very much to Mister Sax and his engineers

 

And absolutely great that the SX-R4+ works as I was expecting.

 

It will be mine!

 

cheers

Sonosax announced a not so super- but minislot module

RX8_R4_HAND_DSC00466-768x513.jpg

 

https://www.sonosax.ch/sononews-april-2021/

Seems slick, I like the boxiness yet functionality of it.  Kind of a bummer it doesn't have an antenna distro though.  I do like whatever those heavy duty sma antennas they are using on the SRb though.  I wonder where they got those from as I'd be interested a few of those myself!

Jacques told me that he didn't want to put a antenna splitter as it's allways a compromise for best signal unless you use a finn. He also opted not to use the superslot system mainly for size and weight reasons. They worked on the mechanics to make it user friendly.

How will the receivers be connected to the recorder? Is there a D-sub port inside or just nothing and you need to use some cable like this:

Thank you!

But I mean how the receivers will be connected inside the RX8? D-sub?

On the video Patrick posted, you can see briefly how Jacques inserts an A10 RX with what should be the DB25 Panasonic/Ikegami style connection.
