Well, now you're getting me worried. :lol:

Ok, here's something from a recording of mine. The beginning part is probably about the closest to silence you'll ever hear at a rock concert.

Mind you, there are still people rustling about and even some motorcyles in the background â€" but even if I'm trying to hear some bad hiss on purpose, it's just not there.

And you can see this absolutely couldn't be a problem when the music starts.

(I know, this is the kind of music that all Cure fans love...)


Look this Caley's post Steve there is a sample ...

For any of you rockers out there, I uploaded my first two masters on Dime a while ago:

I know, Jeff was hoping I would catch some Conway Twitty and Barry Manilow this summer, but I ended up with this stuff instead. :?

I'm not registered at dime, but I listened to the mp3 Tof just put there.
Not bad at all is it. That with external mics right?
Cheers

Yeah. The internal mics aren't good for much, except basic speech recording.

when you recorded a show, is it better to keep it on the SD card, or can you transfer it on a PC to make some correction if it needed ???

You should copy it to your computer via USB as soon as possible. All you're doing is copying the WAV file from one place to another.

Then, I'll immediately back the file(s) up to one of my external drives. And eventually that will be burned to a data DVD as well.

And when that is all done and I decide to record another show, I'll delete everything off the SD card so it's ready for use again.

Very simple!

Damn, those Edirol recorders are tiny. Awesome.

lostflower4

For those concerned about this "hiss" from an Edirol, I made this sample. I made a recording of the line-in signal with no actual input signal â€" so this is just the Edirol's self-noise and nothing more.

The level is set at 30 (the maximum), so this is noisiest it can ever get. And keep in mind that you'll usually have levels below this.

First, set your volume to where it would normally be for music, and then listen to this:


http://www.imaginary-lemurs.com/Edirol%20R-09%20Line%20In%20(max%20volume).flac


It's next to nothing, and there's no way you'd here this with other sounds in the mix â€" especially a loud rock concert.

Tof

it is unbearable the noise which that made !!!

You're joking, right? ;)

Seriously, I'm getting paranoid now!

Tof

If I have a SD card reader on my PC can I use it to copy the files on my PC ???

Damn, you had me scared for a moment. I thought I might be deaf. :oops:

Yep, an internal SD reader will work fine. I've found that transfers to my computer are twice as fast when using a MicroMate card adapter when compared to manually connecting the Edirol to a USB port.

The data all comes out the same in the end. Like I said, you're just copying a WAV file from one place to another. :smth001
