Scattered Light 73


Late last year I finally got a Nagra 4.2 (the 4.2 was the favourite model of many people I spoke to, and the local tech who serviced it said it was the best spec’d machine – significantly more so than the IV-S) and I’ll be using it on one of the next HISSandaROAR libraries, but I also bought a manual for it off eBay, partly out of nostalgia as much as anything else…. Turns out that its not only a manual, its also both a practical and a philosophical guide to production sound recording! Highly reccomended reading for anyone interested in film sound: Guide to the Nagra 4.2 and Production Sound Recording by Fred Ginsburg Theres a couple of copies on eBay now for US$20 or so…

    Hi Tim,
    I’m so curious to listen to a HAAR Library with the 4.2!
    One question: do you think that could be possible, some how, to get two outputs from it? Because I’d like so much to buy a 4.2 but it scares me that I can’t record a Stereo. Do you think that the only way would be buying a IV-S?
    I was thinking about going into the 4.2, than straight to a A/D converter and than PTools. But I’d like to have two channels…

    Thank you!

      hey Francesco
      For my use the Nagra won’t be the only recorder, I’ll be recording to Sound Devices 744 and 722 at the same time…
