I own an SQN 4-s early series mixer. I have been experimenting with the mixer prior to a shoot where I will be using the mixer to send audio to the camera. Basically I am using the mixer with a boom and two Radio mics on channels 1 and 2+3 respectively.
Using the tails I am sending my output into my 702 and monitoring the signal on return to the mixer. Now, I have set up the line up tone at -20d and continue to monitor the signal that is returning from my 702. (In other words, the 702 is replacing the camera for experimentation purposes). However, as I switch from monitoring the return feed from the 702 and the actual input into the SQN mixer the two signals sound quite dramatically different. The return feed from the 702 is thin and lacks the bass in the signal I am getting monitoring the signal in the mixer.
I have checked all high-pass filters, headphone volumes, limiters etc on both devices.
My suspicion is that the outputs on the old SQN are simply not very good. Does anyone else have experience of this? It seems odd the outputs on the tail are not of great quality as this is obviously the main purpose of the mixer.
Any help much appreciated :)
