Fostex PD-6
Recorder 6 tracks on DVD Ram intgrant a mixer 6 tracks. You have six analog inputs and outputs in XLR. Between AES EBU. Taken 10 ways. Firewire to transfer the waves. USB. Making remote. Between time code output. Between output word clock burst.

The machine is powered on NP1 house, we can supply it with good sr why not redundant external power supply the internal one external deuxime NP1. The machine records on DVD RAM format and the broadcast wave in 44.1/48/88/96 of 16 or 24 bits. You choose the number of tracks 2,4,5,6,2 4.1 5. You can Save all made a decision in two runs and four runs in the following. To give you an ide of capacity on one side of DVD Ram: about 1:10 in Stereo at 48/16

Formatting is fast (15s), but there may have to format it how long ... It happened to us once in over a month of shooting, not serious.

It should be manip will integrate the formatting and production files FTA facilitates Postprod. The AVID intgration in AIS is not that they are versions of rcentes quip. The time saving is really apprciable as the digit is no longer relevant and be importing is done directly. A little soft, however ncessaire to retrieve from the broadcast wave to separate tracks.

Then use any recorder is similar. Function is available prrec, practice not to miss a clap, for example. Proofreading is just as easy, you navigate through the machine in a simple tree menu trs. I almost forgot the part mixer, 6 slices with low cut adjustable -6 or - 12 dB / oct, 48-12v phantom power supply, gain, phase reverse, adjustable limit in the menu. You Save pre or post fader or track by track, you can also mix your Save the tranches: a real mixer what!

Regarding the weight of the bbete let's be clear: harness mandatory especially if you have HF rception you carry around. This gives us about 7 kg with 5 Receivers Saint Nazaire, a housing Ambient 1NP1. The machine itself has faisaint 3.4 kg without battery.

Pramplis The pickups are good quality and they cash in without flinching ... and we have yet put hard evidence. The display allows for full and complete information required under the eyes. TC sync works fine in our case we have a connection between housing Ambient in TC. The Systm inform you in case of error or WRITING if audio clipping ... Free you re taking. Judge the audio quality is the absolute prsompteux from us but we can say we did not notice anything weird, for our application it's all good. Tmoignages in the sound recording is music interressants.

In conclusion, we have t really won over by this product. Evolution is a rel in the field of portable sound recording. We Do not hesitate to walk away with the hardware.

Fostex PD-6
A mini recorder E-IDE DVD-RAM (8cm) (DVD5 single layer single sided) 1.47 GB
2-track 96kHz or 48kHz up to track 6.
same ergonomics as the PD4, even between analog, even messy menu, not a simple program STAMPING.

A DVD takes is a little short if you do not want to spend time to refresh
for a professional format (BWF 24-bit, 48 kHz) in two tracks you can record 72 minutes, 4 tracks in 36 minutes in 6 tracks 24 minutes.
Hence the option trs interresting Intgr hard drive (9056) was added (40GB), but more than 650 Euros off labor! than done as you have to think also has the option Aaton Time Code makes many services.

For a machine that can find new 8200 euro (12/2005).

cot and audio is not the Nagra V, with a weight of 4.5 kg in running order!

I really love the short SimpliCTI of use

love the least weight, the consumption and autonomy, which requires having a charger and batteries and DVD-Ram. n is the 96kHz sampling accessible in the format 2 tracks (36 minutes on a DVD-Ram).
Food is also a good solution.

I quickly stopped short trs with PD6 rental, and I use a Nagra V.
