Need some thought about equipment upgrade

 Hello, everyone.

 

I hope everyone is okay. Recently got some thought with equipment updates. I hope I can find a better solution here with all those pros like you guys. 😀

 

-Mixpre 10 II. 

I purchase it because of the inputs and channels; once or twice a term, I will need that many inputs and also the 32bit recording. This usually comes as a back up for my primary system and also most of the time VR sound recording.

 

-633 with Sonosax M32

I got my 633 last year, and it is not a good one. The main bus went bad on my first set. Later I purchased the M32 to benefits those three channels without phantom power. I got an SRC A1 and an SRC B1 and a 411 BLK 24. for it. The problem is that I got 3 SSMs in B1 and an HMA in B1. Only 1 SSM in the A1 band. Should I got another HMA in A1 or another SRC in B1 and also another SSM in B1.   It would be way cheaper to get another HMA A1 so that I got full use of 5 channels and have an SSM B1 for back up. But having 3 SRCs makes total usage of all six inputs of my 633.

 

Should I get rid of everything and get an 888 with an SL2 and two MCR54 kits on promotion right now. Or should I stay where I am at making some minor adjustments to my current system? And also, how well does the Wisycom receiver fit the Lectrosonic transmitter. I do enjoy the size of the SSM. I ask is because the wideband technique and the four channels may benefit my system by sharing the transmitter for different situations. 

 

-Mixpre 10 II + 2 SRCs

-633 +MCR 54 + 411.

 

 

 

I know it isn't very easy, but. I do struggle it for more than a week; Please let me know what do you think. Thank you so much

Your main bus went out? Like the L and R won’t record? Outputs won’t work? Not sure I understand. The 633 is a workhorse and if it’s working properly should make you very happy.

 

i would t change to Wisycom unless you’re unhappy with Lectro. Do you like the sound and performance? If yes, I’d stick with them (Although Wisys are very nice).

If you sell everything then you'll no longer have a back up recorder, perhaps factor in keeping one of your 633/MixPre10, or getting a cheaper F8/MixPre6 to act as your back up.

Can you do the jobs you have with your current gear?

Do you enjoy working with it?

Do you have money to spend?

Do you have enough jobs that pay rental for new items?

etc...

I don't have to worry much about the money so far.  My 633 had some tiny issue and those issue pops up some times.

If I had to upgrade something, that will be for better wireless system.

633 is fine recorder and easy to use.

 

Do you need more than six channels in your workflow?

sometime I needs more than 6 channels.

I got a F8 with a 552 as my second unit.
