  1. Will the RH10 work with Zefiro InBox/Denecke AD-20 - Dual channel Mic Preamp and analog to digital converter combo? The question has 2 parts: 1) will the RH10 accept digital input and will the SS 3.4 allow to upload it into the SS library and burn discs from it? 2) the HiMD "optical input" is not a regular optical input, it receives a regular RCA 1/8" plug, but the Zefiro has a regular optical output, so I don't know how that works. I basically don't understand how the RH10 line in can double as an optical input. thanks, Noam
  2. When I go to Sonic Stage 3.4 tools>options>creating a CD>location of temporary files, and change location(folder), the software ignores my choice and continues to keep the WAV files it creates in a previous location I had chosen before. How can I direct it to create the WAV files, which it does automatically after download is complete, to the location of my choice? Noam
  3. When I tape with the RH10 using the line in and putting the unit inside a synthetic suit pocket, one that makes me sweat, and/or when the weather is warm (above 55 F), the unit shuts off after 20-60 minutes, and if I use the hold function the signal just dies down to a thread on the WAV form. In other words, the line in is temperature sensitive. The mic in is no problemo. The temperature inside a suit pocket cannot be much above body temperature, yet garment changes and/or anything warmer than winter temperatures make it malfunction. Is this a defective unit or are all MZ-RH10 units temperature hypersensitive? Noam
  4. running out of memory

    I tape in HiSP and keep the files in Sonic Stage because in HiSP they don't take too much disc space. It's only when I edit to CD that I need the WAV files. I use a wonderful program, Sound Forge CD architect. I make copies for friends, keep the WAV files for a month and then delete them. The CD architect is unique in that it does not affect the WAV file - it leaves it unedited. The editing results in tiny files that are Decision Editing List or something like that. When I burn a CD, these tiny files interact with the unedited WAV files to give me my edited CD. If I want another CD after I already deleted the WAV file, I can either copy my archived CD-R, or tell Sonic Stage to convert again from HiSP to WAV, making available to CD architect the WAV file to burn an edited CD from (since CD architect does not change the WAV file, you cannot burn CD's with other software that takes the edited WAV file, you have to burn using CD Architect.) So, bottom line, I have the files kept in the computer in a smaller format anyway (HiSP may not be lossles, but I cannot hear a difference.) I was hoping to keep everyting in WAV, so as not to have to delete it again and again - Noam
  5. running out of memory

    I tape about 2 performances a week, and I am going to run out of hard disc space with all the WAV files. I thought of buying a cheap computer dedicated only for Sonic Stage, and for editing and burning, but at my current rate I would need a 1TB hard disc and those computers aren't cheap. I tried an external hard disc, but after one day my computer and the 1TB LeCie stopped talking to each other - these external storage devices are not reliable. What is your approach to the disc space problem? - thanks, Noam
  6. basic editing software

    Thanks, that looks pretty useful. Why do some people who use the Audacity prefer to do the tracking with CD Wave? Is it because Audacity handles shorter files better and tracking with CD Wave is fast? - Noam
  7. basic editing software

    Thanks. I am trying to read the manual online and I don't get anywhere. All these manuals are for people more advanced in this than me. I can work a dumb program like SonicStage, but here I click on tabs and funny things happen - Noam
  8. basic editing software

    Looking for recommendations for a simple and reliable editing software, that will enable me to do no more than to drop track marks, do fade out, splitting and reduce volume of sections of the WAV form (applause). I tried to use CD architect, but haven’t been able to get much help from the help menu. Is there any program that comes with a real instruction manual for dummies, or a program that is simple and intuitive? - Noam
  9. Sonicstage Installation woes

    Thanks a lot. I'll try this as soon as I get home. Another question: is there a way to transfer the files on SonicStage to another computer? Another question: I want to switch to an Apple computer. This SonicStage is only for windows? Will I be able to transfer my files on my current windows XP SonicStage to an Apple computer? Thanks, Noam
  10. Sonicstage Installation woes

    Sorry for my ignorance, how do I do that exactly with window XP? Where do I go? Thanks, Noam
  11. Sonicstage Installation woes

    "We highly recommend you uninstall your previous version of Sonicstage before installing." - Will the files saved in the library be lost? - Noam
  12. What are the prospects for SONY to come up with HiMD media larger than 1GB? I need to be able to tape 2 hour concerts in PCM - Noam
  13. I got my MZ-RH10 yesterday and have been testing it. I tried the real time solution of playing the recorded material on the HiMD and capturing with total recorder. Problem is the HiMD puts tracks whenever the sound level drops (I use battery box into line in). It put 136 tracks on a 94 recording. When I play it as described in the Minidisk Community Forum, A Guide to HiMD Uploading, Paranoiacs' Option, by pressing "Play" in SonicStage on the HiMD half of the screen*, it plays it with 2 second gaps between the tracks, and this is what the Total Recorder captures. Is there a way to either prevent that from happening, or to set the HiMD so that it doesn't put these damn tracks? I edited a recording and removed tracks manually on the HiMD, one by one. When I tried to upload them to the computer through SonicStage 3.0 it crashed and gave me a message "Omgjbox.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close"**, and of course the recording was lost, impossible to upload it again. This happened repeatedly, and only made me determined to ALWAYS capture the recording in real time using Total Recorder, but what about these 2 second gaps? - (*http://forums.minidisc.org/index.php?showtopic=7436) Basically you have to choose between using the SONY software and risking a crash and loss of material, and using the Total Recorder, which is more sophisticated but less straight forward than the SONY software. The Total Recorder is also the only way to edit, because if you try to follow SONY's recommendations on how to edit, they say in the manual NOT to edit with their software on the computer, because it will take HOURS; they recommend editing on the HiMD itself manually. But when you do that it crashes during upload and all is lost. Additionally, SonicStage 3.0 with the Simple Burner supports only 8x burning speed and does not support CD-RW. Also, ALL MANUAL MIC INPUT RECORDING SETTINGS WILL RESET to full AUTO (Sony's TYPICAL default) when you STOP recording, so like with previous models of with Sony MD’s, you have to push all the buttons again to gain control for MANUAL REC level and LOW microphone sensitivity SETTING EVERY TIME YOU START UP TO RECORD AGAIN!
