  1. It's been a long time since I posted in this thread. Since then, I've never really used the MZ-RH1 the way I wanted to. What I've been doing over the years is: - using the mic I got from Giant Squid Audio Lab (http://www.giant-squid-audio-lab.com/gs/gs-micline1.html) - the connection in the mic slot - rec level set to 06 - the mic on my collar near my neck - Minidisc recorder in back pocket The sound will usually be good but the problem is that when audience laughs, the sound will break up. With my Canon HV20 camcorder, I'll use my AT-822 mic. I've never tried to combine the sounds that I got from my minidisc into the video's sound. Lately I've noticed that the sound keeps going in and out like something's loose. I don't know if the mic jack of my RH1 has gone bad or if there's something wrong on the mic's end. I have a show tonight and instead of keeping the minidisc on me, maybe I'll use my AT-822 directly with my MZ-RH1 (Since I Don't have my camcorder on me anyways to record video). Debating on using the Mic (Plug in power) jack and using the Line in (opt) jack instead after seeing this thread: Over the next few days, I'll try and post some samples of recordings where you can hear the crowd getting to loud causing the problems I've mentioned. I'll see if I can find any good recordings that have video to match.
  2. A little off-topic, but relevant to the post I'm quoting... Guitarfxr and me have been going back and forth over PM about my recently purchased AT-822 (btw Guitarfxr, I shot you an e-mail recently as you requested). I was wondering on getting a good windscreen for both outdoors and indoors beacuse my used AT-822 didn't come with anything. I'm planning on using my AT-822 w/ my newly purchased Canon XH-A1. I just ordered the Shock mount I needed and the shoe adapter (that comes with a new AT-822, but unfortunately not the used AT-822 that I bought) from B&H photo and it should be here in a few days.
  3. Please do link guitarfxr. I'm subscribing to this thread.
  4. Thanks for the feedback 1kyle and RainTheory. Let me look into this some more and figure out what the best solution is for me. btw - I just came across this on The unofficial apple weblog but haven't gone through it thoroughly: http://www.tuaw.com/2008/08/13/play-flac-i...with-less-mess/
  5. Thanks for getting back to me guys. I hope my question doesn't take this thread off topic, but while we're on the subject of lossless, I thought I could ask: I have been wanting to get rid of all my CDs for a while now. In the era of mp3 players, its just so much easier going that route. I don't really use my MD for pleasure listening so it's really going to be my iPod and whatever future capabilities that cars will allow for my music needs (My minidisc is for recording purposes). So that being said.. as an Apple user.. what is the best way for me to rip my music to ensure I've captured the most quality that I will not miss my CD when I get rid of it? Any advice or suggestions? Any better threads to check out?
  6. sorry for the stupid question, but what exactly is flac? I've heard about it before.
  7. hey thanks for the advice. I've been wanting to get rid of all my CDs for a while now, but have always wondered what the best way to do it is. I'm mainly a mac guy and have always wondered what the best way to preserve the most quality would be.
  8. I love iTunes for it's music management capabilities and I love iPod for it's ability to sync to my iTunes. I love my MZ-RH1 for my recording needs, but prefer my iPod for my listening needs. However, I personally wouldn't buy an iPod right now. A refresh should be happening in the next couple of months with the latest and greatest features. That's when I plan on getting something better than my 4GB Nano which I got late last year. Definitely planning on getting a Touch so that I can do more than just music w/ my iPod. And I'm praying for some new functionality w/ the Touch - (*crosses fingers) maybe WiMAX?
  9. I'm able to use Hi-MD Music Transfer just fine on my 15" MacBook Pro running Leopard. I also believe I got rid fo the Monitor program ok as I Don't see it in my activity monitor. However, I do see mdworker which is 6.29 MB real memory / 608.92 MB Virtual memory. Is this a minidisc related program?
  10. just out of curiosity, with your MZ-RH1, were you already able to adjust your recording levels? Or did you have to do a tweak similar to what A440 had given me here: http://forums.minidisc.org/index.php?s=&am...st&p=127344 (I can control recording level fine now, I'm just asking).
  11. wow, did not consider this. I might have to look into this. I took 2 and a half years of Japanese while in College and have been wanting to brush up on my Japanese lately. (Especially if I can take advantage of a mansfield fellowship to go to Japan one day - the Mansfield fellowship is for Federal Employees).
  12. hmm.. haven't had any problems like this with my MZ-RH1, but I'd like to subscribe to this thread in case I ever do have any problems like this. I've had my MZ-RH1 for 1 year and.. (knock on wood).. no problems yet.
  13. I've been pretty happy so far with the quality of my soundprofessionals stuff that I got with my MZ-RH1 a year ago: SP-BMC-2 Omnidirectional Stereo Microphones with clips (Save $20) And the battery mic module that I added on: SP-SPSB-2 SOUND PROFESSIONALS SUPER MINI BATTERY MODULE. MADE IN USA. 6 inch output cable; No extra batteries; Standard 2 year Warranty (no charge) I got some samples of stuff I've recorded on my stand up thread: http://forums.minidisc.org/index.php?showtopic=15910 I can't seem to find my battery module so I'm wondering what I should get as a replacement. Any suggestions? I saw a DIY here on this forum but I think it's a little too hard for me to follow. I'm not really a handy guy at all.
  14. wow, I never thought to get an MD cleaner ever. I dont use my unit very often (only every now and then to record important stand up events). I'll keep this in mind though
