  1. Hey, all- Who can help me with this vexing problem? When recording live in the field, my recorded material will have gaps in the sound. The gaps vary in length from microseconds to sometimes more than a second. There's no apparent pattern to their appearance or duration. They appear at every point in the program from start to finish. It doesn't matter if the recorder is in a stationary position or if it's being moved around. As far as I can tell, the mic input jack is not loose and the mic plug is making good contact. (I've had problems in the past with a loose input jack and it resulted in severely out of phase recordings rather than gaps.) I've tried using a cleaning disc and it offers temporary relief, usually about a single recording session's worth. If anybody has any input regarding this issue, I'd love to hear it. Your advice just might save the life of a minidisc recorder. -mt
