Could you share with us any comparisons you've recorded with Scorpio vs Deva/Nomad?

Geoff - thanks for sharing your first impressions of Scorpio. All good stuff, much of which we know about and are in our short term plans. You mention 'half-baked' ... I'd prefer to think of Scor

Absolutely, but it makes no sense to me on a tv production. I need overdub to re-record one speaker after a take, where something was the wrong, but they don’t want to shoot it again. With overdub the

 As a a new 888 owner, I was curious to know.  At first glance through the manual for the 888 , the only reference to the blue color is in a photo screenshot  of the Bus 1 screen. In the  legend in the top left corner, it says Send = <blue box>

 (See attached image from the 888 manual).

I will keep looking, but that’s the first clue.

Blue means it's a Send. 

So you can define a value of how much is sent to the bus.

I think this is controlled in the channel setup screen of the specific channel. 

 

Manual page 8

CHANNEL TO BUS ROUTING

Determines to which bus or buses the 
channel audio will be sent. When a channel is routed to a bus as a Send (bus box highlighted blue), the Send Gain value is used. When 
a channel is sent Pre (green) or Post (orange), the Send Gain value is ignored.

 

I hope Im right and this is helpful.

Mano - you are correct! Blue allows you to create mixes independent of the pre or post fader gains feeding the main mix. This technique is often used for creating custom monitor mixes for musicians but could also be useful for creating personalized IEM feeds on set.

I have to do this often on live remote anchoring sets for network news and sports.  Often the host/talent have IFB ear molds in their ears and can't hear their guests / other talent sitting or standing right next to them well, especially in high noise environments.  They each need each others iso's blended in lightly for a mix minus on set.  It was always a struggle with the 688 having no control of the send to aux levels of the ISOs; I'd have to provide the remote program feed hot to each aux talent in-ear monitor so the ISO pre-fade (of the others) to the aux was at a lower level.  It was a delicate and painful dance.  On the 8 Series with the aux send option it's a breeze.  One of the many reasons I added a 833 and Scorpio.  This is a great feature that you don't know you needed until you had the option.

You mention 'half-baked' ... I'd prefer to think of Scorpio as a fully-baked first tier of a cake designed to be robust enough to have many further tiers added to it:) And each layer is sweeter than the last;) 

Just like all our previous products e.g. 788T, Scorpio's hardware, OS, and external control ecosystem have been architected to evolve and grow with the needs of the production sound industry for many years to come. Keep watching this space. This is just the beginning. 

 

Thx again

Hello Paul!

 

I feel like I know you now after all of your recent webinars, which by the way have been most excellent!

 

It's been almost a year now since I posted my intitial reactions and true to your word, the "cake" is shaping up quite nicely. Almost all of my early concerns have been addressed and remedied. 

 

As you have often said, this is an entirely new platform and now, as you add more and more functionality to it, I can appreciate the design structure and the years of thought that went into the framework. It is truly an extraordinary achievement. Thank you for that and your continual support and forward thinking. I look forward to years of new and exciting updates and accessories.

 

Cheers and thanks again!

 

Geoff

Is there anyone out there using a Scorpio with a CL-12 who can report back on how well that is working for them?

 

I'm bumping this post. I am seriously thinking of upgrading my 688 to a scorpio but before i make the purchase i'd love to know if people have been using the scorpio - SL6 - CL12 combo and would like to report.

There are still a few point that are a bit unclear to me. When using the SL6 you need to power the SL6/scorpio through the SL6 (NP1 or Hirose), correct? So that means you cannot charge the potential NPF battery plugged in the back of the scorpio through the machine?

Will any USB A - USB A cable work as a connection between the scorpio and the CL12?

I only had about 12 shoot days with the Scorpio and CL-12 before the shutdown but I was pretty happy with the setup.  Probably the most useful trick was to map two of the user buttons to "select" and "headphone" so that you could use the single knob on the CL-12 to operate both of those functions on the Scorpio.  It'll soon go into a case as a backup device once I get my hands on a CL-16.  Oh, and although I did send the CL-12 the extra power via the USB power port, according to SD this is not necessary with the Scorpio.  Mine setup has been stable so I'm leaving it connected.
