    Alesis SR-16 vs Boss DR3.....which has better output sound quality?

    Thanks mate. I did revisit my boss again and had the wrong connector on. Makes a huge difference now with stereo output lol. But I do still want to get an Alesis. They have too much of a good name not to be any good. Is the SR-16 not back lit? That would be a huge negative for not using it live...

    Alesis SR-16 vs Boss DR3.....which has better output sound quality?

    Read a lot of reviews on both of these and don't really see much in the way of sound quality comparison. Main sort of negatives I see with the Boss are difficult to use. I have one now and I find it very easy to use as I am very familiar with 90's/ 2000's Roland / boss menus and to me has some...

    Are Condenser mic's stereo or Mono?

    The mic inputs share the LINE input socket which is stereo. Then you go and select input channel or assign the input channel to it. So on the machine you can designate LINE or Ext (mic). Selecting the Ext input automatically selects 2 tracks (Stereo). It's almost like a bit of a mistake. For...

    Connecting a Condenser or Dynamic mic to a 1/8" stereo input?

    -10 (MIC) and - 40 (LINE) is spot on. Just checked it on the specs, Does that mean it's cutting the input signal by -10db and cutting LINE signal by -40db? So a lot more reduction on the LINE input to compensate for a higher / powered input level?

    Using a condenser mic with external 48V phantom power into a line input?

    I know its weird but I want to use effects on my vocals. The mic input has very few EQ type effects no delays etc. The LINE input, for whatever reason has a full vocal effects set. Why I can't tell you. Maybe need to use a mic booster / pre amp thing

    Connecting a Condenser or Dynamic mic to a 1/8" stereo input?

    Its a micro BR (BR-80 next generation) and does have switchable power (2.5V) for a powered input mic I think they call it. Like a lapel mic used for speaking I think. But you wouldn't use that power for a dynamic mic would you?

    Connecting a Condenser or Dynamic mic to a 1/8" stereo input?

    These actually boost the mic signal to LINE strength right? Wondering how they do that without batteries etc?

    Are Condenser mic's stereo or Mono?

    It is definitely a stereo input, mentions it several times in the manual. Why there is a stereo socket for a mic input makes no sense to me but that's the way it is. The input socket actually doubles as a LINE input (which normally would be stereo) and a mic input. You select whether you want...

    Using a condenser mic with external 48V phantom power into a line input?

    Got a recorder I want to plug my condenser mic into the LINE input. I will be using external 48V power supply for the condenser. Just wondering does external 48V power supply boost the Condenser mic to LINE level or is it still at mic level. I know I should plug into the Mic input but I want to...

    Connecting a Condenser or Dynamic mic to a 1/8" stereo input?

    I got a little Boss BR Micro recorder and it has a stereo 1/8" input socket for ext mic. I wish to connect my Condenser mic to the unit using a separate 48v phantom power supply. From there I would need an XLR to 1/8" adapter cable with the 1/8" plug to go into the boss..... but the only cable I...

    Boss Micro BR compatible with Windows 11

    Just saw one of these for sale very cheap. I had a BR600 which I had to sell because it was incompatible with Windows 11. All I want to do really is transfer the finished files to my computer as wave. I believe they have a wave converter program where you can get the Boss files off and convert...

    Recording mics (newb questions)

    Only using one mic / one input at a time but recording to two tracks through the XLR input with phantom power on. Does that make a difference? And by the by, I forgot and left the phantom power on when I switched to my dynamic mic. Nothing damaged but is this something that may cause a problem...

    Recording mics (newb questions)

    Pretty new to recording mics. I have a Behringer XM8500 (SM58 knock off but damn good mic) and an XML990 I recently purchased. Both I realize not the top of the tree but both seem to be well respected workhorse budget mics. I am recording into a Zoom R8 recorder. I have used the Behringer mic...

    Zoom R8 metronome / count in

    Playing around with the metronome feature today and must be missing something. I set everything up and did an 8 beat count in. I set it to record and play. I assume this is the right setting? I don't want to record the metronome obviously only hear it when recording or playing back. So I count...

    Recording my V drums on Zoom R8 portable recorder

    Got my Y cable this morning and worked perfectly. I recorded firstly using stereo mode on the track, which automatically assigns 2 tracks one panned left and other right. Just didn't seem to play back in stereo? Only coming through one side of the headphones. I then just recorded to tracks...

    Recording my V drums on Zoom R8 portable recorder

    Oh well I found a very simple solution. Just use a 1/8" mono jack into the module and out to one 1/4" mono. Sounds perfect. Am I losing anything by doing this. Clearly not stereo as it was designed to produce. Would it be a whole lot better if I did take the stereo into 2 of the recorder inputs?

    Recording my V drums on Zoom R8 portable recorder

    Oh by the way, my PA is just a single speaker multi instrument type thing but does the job well. I bought it for the drums and solo guitar and vocals. Would there be any benefit to hooking the drums up with a Y cable in the same fashion to the PA using 2 inputs? Would it be a better sound or no...

    Recording my V drums on Zoom R8 portable recorder

    Thanks so much for your help everybody. I am certain that is the problem. And the symptoms are exactly as described. Like there is a hole in the middle of the output sound if that makes sense. I've got my guitar bass and vocals sorted, no where to put the mics etc the drums are the last piece of...
