If you can deal with transportable vs truly portable, the new M-Audio ProjectMix I/O has both recording ,mixing and a Mackie compatible control surface that would hook up to a laptop quite nicely(via firewre). It has 8 balanced xlr /trs inputs and supports 24/96.
It uses 9v at 3500ma, so in theory you could build a low cost battery pack and make it work just about anywhere. go to M-Audio for full specs, so I don't sound like an advertisement, hehehe. Street prices are just below 1K.

zaxcom , fostex , aaton, HHB all of them 4 track +recorders with at least 4 preamps and tc
you still can get used sanosax dat which record 4 tack or nagra d whih also records 4 track , both have better preamps then edirol or simillar .

new Ambient 2006 spring/summer products

I heard from a Soundpro Dieter Meyer DMT in switzerland that Ambient will release a LANC to SMTP converter. I believe with a wireless datastream ???
Also a Stereo Digital Wireless like Zaxcom but less $$$$
Also mention the new DPA 4026 new Wide cardoid and DPA 4090 Omnis.
I use a pair for DPA 4060 on Edirol R4 with MMA 6000 Micpre tweaked = liquid + live

EXPENSIVE....I emailed requesting a price quote and what they sent back was a 15k USD pricetag. I have the options list if anybody wants to look at it. I sure do wish I could buy one.

Cheers.

Edirol R 4 and 2 Cameras LANC sync

1.
Only one Camera is connected to the Edirol, so the second is out of sync.
The other problem ist hat the cable connection has to be all the time otherwise the recorder Stops.
2.
Ambient Time Code Wirelss LANC To SMPTE:
With 2 Cameras Sony FX1 I dont know if its practicable with any Timecode recorder to have both cameras in sync. Only whith 2 ZX1 problably.
3.
Record the Timebase to one audio Track on both cameras but needs 1 Masterclock and one Transmitter 2 reciever. Is this a solution?

Thanks!


Neither myself or any of the likely suspects had any comments on the Sonosax. It probably never came up.

I only wanted to list things that I KNEW would work.

For anyone looking for a mixer and a recorder the Alesis Multimix Firewire and a laptop would seem a pretty good setup. SO far I can find nothing on the quality of their preamps so I'm a bit reluctant to take the plunge myself.

Tascam HD-P2 two-track

It's off topic 'cause it's only 2-track, but the Tascam HD-P2 192kHz/24-bit Compact Flash stereo recorder with is "now shipping". http://www.tascam.com/Products/hdp2.html $999 at B&H. Writes Time-stamped Broadcast WAVE files, and syncs to incoming SMPTE/LTC timecode. I haven't heard much about it yet. Anyone else considering this one, or know of reviews or forums where it is/will be discussed?

(edit..there was a thread on the HD-P2 in October...but no detailed info at that time)
