  1. Well, I did it myself with SP-CMC-2s. I followed the instructions on Sound Pros website. Simple-ish job. Each 'arm' of the croakies are made up of 2 thin tubes. The idea is, you snip off the end, then roll back one of the tubes on each arm, leaving about an inch at the front end. Lay your mic cable ON the inner tube (not inside it!), and insert the mic capsule end into the 1 inch you left. Then roll the outer tube back down over your cable. Seal the loose ends with duct tape or elastic bands. Note - whilst you could take your mics out again afterwards, it is not a process that is quickly repeatable. You would want to keep them in, or out. I'm keeping mine IN.
  2. I had considered OKM when looking at mics. The only one I would have bought would have been the OKM II Rock. But the problem with these are they are great for loud rock shows, but I also want to record quieter shows (e.g. acoustic) - and for these kind of shows, the Rock is no good - it is prone to generate feedback (I got this from Soundman's site). So I plumped for a Sound Professionals CMC-2 (and brilliant it is too), along with a second hand Core Sound Binaurals I got from a chap in Germany. If you are going to mainly record very loud shows, then the OKM II Rock should suit you fine.
  3. Acrobat 4 is ancient. I'd suggest getting the latest version (7) - it is free after all. I had no trouble downloading and viewing the file using v7.
  4. I think there is confusion here between NetMD and Network Walkman. Whatever, Hi-MD WILL NOT transfer NetMD recordings in this way. Unless Sony get their act together - it is only software, after all, that is stopping this!!! Just what is their problem?
  5. I beg your pardon? When did this luxury happen? My NetMD (MZ-N1) wouldn't let me play tracks through SS over USB. The USB traffic on NetMD is ONE-WAY ONLY - PC>MD. You can't even use Hi-MD to play these back over USB! Whichever NetMD you have, the only option for a digital upload is through an MD deck with a digital output - the alternative of course, being an analog playback. Or did I dream all that?
  6. I've got the same setup as you. I am very happy with mine however. Apart from perhaps they are not that comfortable for long term listening - say all day.
  7. Actually, I'd suggest sampling both methods and see (or rather, hear) which sounds better. If the MD > Hi-MD via line-in is a cleaner signal than your MD > PC line-in, you could end up with a better recording that way. Try a sample of both before you decide which way to go. You've just reminded me actually, I've got some old cassette tape recordings I want to archive. Must get around to that someday.
  8. If I needed to clean the inside of my MD, I'd be tempted to use an air blaster can first. If you know what I mean.
  9. But the other way is ok - you can use older MDs in all Hi-MD models.
  10. When you say twist the recorder and/or the mic, what do you mean exactly? You haven't got one of those tiny plug-in mics have you, that just stick out of the MD? They do tend to pick up noise of the MD itself - or so I have been told.
  11. Out of interest rather than intent to buy (I am happy with my MZ-NH1), I popped into the Cardiff Sony shop yesterday to see if they had an MZ-RH10 on display. No, they didn't. What I laughed at (well, an inward chuckle), was their display of the "New" MZ-NH1, STILL retailing at £299.99. What planet are they on?
  12. I too, have an NH1. I've recorded 2 shows using it. Both times 3 hours or just over. In each case, 1 bar of the battery meter was used up - so it looked like it had plenty to go. I haven't got a spare for it yet. I will have a look someday.

    How Many Mp3s...

    kibibyte. What a cute word.
  14. I've checked my MZ-NH1 manual and it would appear not.
