    I'm curious about the history of this custom of charging separately for labor and gear. I'd have thought charging separate rates would have been a tradition of TV production, rather than the reverse....

    Yes, I did notice that about the F8. And very true re: the H6. If we go that route, I'll have to talk to the band about making the most of those remaining four inputs.

    Yup, that's is exactly what I'm thinking, Scott. The project is much closer to "A Mighty Wind" than "The Last Waltz", though any comedy will likely be unintentional. This is definitely not a "name"...

    FS7: Anamorphics + FS7 = bad idea?
