msol607 Posted September 9, 2008 Report Share Posted September 9, 2008 Sorry for posting dumb questions but, man I’m having a hell of a time recording rock band practices. Instead of using my broken deck with only one recording channel (see my previous post), I thought I’d try a portable recorder. Based on Amazon comments, I bought a used MZ-r37 for cheap. Others said they used it for rehearsal recordings. Didn’t work for me. The first try I had it sitting on a mixer cabinet. The recording had skips & drop-outs, I assumed caused by the vibrations from the loud amps. The next practice I moved it onto a canvas bag on the floor. The results were about the same. I'm attaching a clip with fairly typical skips/dropouts and another clip where the unit totally lost it (with multi-second dropouts) during the middle of song. Is this unit broken? The quieter parts of the recording have less skips but the loudest parts don’t necessarily invoke skipping. Any insights/suggestions would be apprieciatedI should note that I use two mics into a mixer which goes tape out to mic-in on the recorder. I tried to use optical/line in but could not get loud enough recording volume.90808Messin_bad.mp3Sweet_Bad.mp3 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
