Rode NT4 mic with MD?
Hudson20000 replied to butchc's topic in Live RecordingI'm new to forums but I'm a veteran bootlegger so I hope this is some help. There was a post asking about using the NT4 with a minidisc a while back and felt obligated to post I have an NT4 and it works great in the studio when you have true phantom power on your side, but when I took it to record some stuff of birds etc, I couldn't get a strong enough signal (MZ-NZ10) by going through the line in, and the mic in isn't even an option, it dirties the sound so badly. I made sure my 9V was fully charged as well, and still nada. I believe to recording anything decent with it, you have to have a nice strong portable pre that will supply decent phantom power. If anybody has any different results with their MD gear, preferably MZseries, please let me know
