for a neumann option.....

Nick makes neumann cables, he can make you a KCY cable, i have one he made, it is perfect, and you can then get an IPA that has 50db instead of 60v polarization voltage, which is what neumanns use, and you can also have him invert the polarity in that when i run the neumanns on the KCY the polarity is flipped on both mics.  this only comes into play when you are running a multi mic mix and the neumanns will be out of phase from the other mics

so yah, drop nick a line, the work he did on my cables was amazing

Thanks, Dan!  I had messaged Nick a while back and he is building me a custom KCY cable.  I just messaged Jon to see if he can make those modifications on the IPA.  I appreciate your advice!

If I am running a set of NBobs and  Schoeps MK5's do I need one or two IPA's?
Who here has used these for stack taping?
Has anyone switched from the Tinybox to this and if so what are your thoughts?

Thanks for any info.

One.

Not me, but many others, also "stack taping" isn't really that different from any other form of low pro taping, except it's in mono and very loud

Has anyone switched from the Tinybox to this and if so what are your thoughts?
Jon designed it to replace the tinybox, it works perfectly.

Thanks. I guess my main concern is stack taping as I have a friend who uses a tiny box and he has to set it to the low setting to record very loud music otherwise it will distort.

Just get an IPA without any gain and you'll be fine.

what other gear is being used?
persoanlly i doubt it is the tb that is actually distorting based on my results with lb and tb
I don't think you would have issues with IPA either

Sony M10 - NBobs vers 1- Schoeps Mk41

He can only record on low gain otherwise anything recorded will be distorted.
This is true from arena recordings and clubs to head in stack tapes.
He thinks it is a - 10db setting but not sure as no info was given with the Tinybox.

I never seen a Tinybox with -10 setting!  That wasn't the standard gain structure.  Get an IPA with 0db, 10db, 20db and you should be good to go.

So small and so easy to use. I got 0/9/18 and only use the 18db setting and adjust on my m10. IMO Schoeps are only mics I've ran that need zero color. Just clean power. IPA delivers for 119 bucks.

Anyone here running their stereo IPA with phantom power? If so, how so? With the standard xlr y cable Jon ships with it?

I'm thinking about setting up my dpa4021 pair with these. Back when the tiny box was a thing, I got one for them and $400 or so later that thing with all its XLR and Mini-XLR cable adapters just became too burdensome. The whole setup had almost the same footprint as the pmd661, and the tiny box had settings that easily brickwalled in small clubs.

You guys have any recommended gain structures that might prevent brickwalling with this kind of setup?

What I was hoping to do was actually get the mic cable modified by Jon and chop off the XLR connectors to replace them with mini-XLR then put the female end of the mini-XLR to the original large XLR so that I could have a small XLR-Mini XLR cable to plug into any phantom powered pre, or plug into the IPA cable.  (which would be female mini-XLR > IPA > 3.5mm male)

Is that too many words?
What I'm worried about is basically creating a brickwalling set of mics, which is what they used to be before I began using them only with the ocmR44. I haven't found a scenario yet where they will overload the ocmR44's preamps, but I'd like to occasionally take them into places with a Korg MR-1 and need to find reliable powering and gain structure options.

Man, I really use a lot of words.

Thanks for any help you can be!

this is definitely not normal

Yes. I run it off my r44 all the time with Jon's cable.
