Condition

Depending on several conditions, chiefly the microphone, the transformer-balanced inputs, such as those on the 302, 442, MixPre, MM-1, MP-1, and MP2, can get into an oscillating condition with a microphone that renders the audio unusable. This oscillation is often described as a "motorboating" condition since this low frequency oscillation sounds like a motor boat.

Many test and measurement applications take advantage of the impressive bandwidth offered by the 722 and 744T analog inputs. Linear frequency response, particularly low frequency response, is needed for noise and vibration measurements. Linear high frequency response is useful when slowing audio in post production.

There are many excellent articles (see links below) covering the basics of audio level metering — this is not that kind of article. This article moves beyond the basics to specifically discuss metering with Sound Devices 442, MixPre, and MP-2 portable products. A good general understanding of audio level metering is helpful before understanding the nuances of Sound Devices meters.

The Canon XL1 and XL1S cameras are popular DV acquisition tools. While photographers appreciate these cameras because of their ergonomics and image quality, audio engineers are not as happy with them because of their consumer-grade audio connectors and controls.

Sound Devices 442 and 302 mixers along with the 7-Series Digital Recorders have the ability to accept, monitor, and decode MS stereo signals. MS (mid-side) stereo is a popular stereo microphone technique because of its good spatial imaging, mono compatibility, surround-sound compatibility, and ability to adjust the stereo field in post production.

Sound Devices MixPre, 302, and 442 mixers are designed to link directly with each other using a single cable. The Mix In connection on the 302 and 442 is directly compatible with the Mix Out/Tape Out connections on the MixPre, 302, and 442. When linked, one mixer becomes the master and the other the "auxiliary".
