If you are getting a low battery light (that may be the cause of you problem), you should check that the AC outlet settings are right. If the settings are correct, you should take out the AC adapter and try it with batteries (do not forget to disconect the AC from the power and from the recorder!!!). hope this will help. Daniel

I plug my rode ntg-2 into the computer and record using audacity and the recording is extremely low in volume.


This mic needs phantom power to operate. Best bet, go and buy a USB mic pre, such as a M-Audio product.

This mic, I believe also runs on a battery, when phantom power is not available...so check the battery.

Or, simply, your record levels are set too low.

How to connect Marantz PMD201 to computer to convert tapes


You have an analog tape recorder, so you need an interface which will allow you to plug it into your computer. This kind of interface is sometimes referred to as a USB Audio Interface. I use a Tapco Link.USB, and it works well, but there are many out there to choose from - you can use something pretty simple, nothing fancy needed.
The interface will plug into your computer via USB cable, and then you will use RCA cables to plug the PMD201 into the interface. When you play the audio on the tape machine, you should be able to select the "USB interface" on your computer as your "input device" and record on the computer. Watch on the computer recording software for input levels (meters that show sound is coming in), and set them to appropriate levels, not too low, not too high (if there is a red zone, you want to flirt with it only on the highest levels) ... don't hit "zero" if your computer shows zero as the peak level for input.

Final Cut Pro is far to complicated for what you are talking about doing. Many computers come with software already installed that will make simple audio recordings like this.

Please feel free to visit my website, rexark.com, for more information on audio and recording, as well as audio presentation and PA systems.

Good Luck!

Need to know how to use mic with dp-01


First you'll need to know if your mic is dynamic or requires phantom power. The DP-01 does not provide phantom power, but the DP-01FX and the DP01-FX/CD units have the option of turning on phantom power for their two XRL mic jacks. The DP-01 simply has 1/4" jacks for mics. Typically if your mic comes with a 1/4" plug it will be dynamic, but that isn't always true.

Plug it into the mic/line jack in the front of the unit and turn up the input volume knob. Then depending on which of the two inputs you used you'll have to press the Assign button (A or B) and then the rec button over one of the tracks and turn up the track fader. You'll also need to insure that the master fader is turned up and you should then be able to see the meters moving when speaking into the mic and hear the output in your headphones.

To record simply press the rec button on the assigned track again (it will light steady) to arm the track for recording and press the play and record together.

Hope this helps.

I have just purchased a new marantz PMD670. When I record using the internal mic it records a 'humming' noise. Using the external mic magnifies the 'noise'


Hi wangkatja

There is little that the user can do to introduce hum to a pro recorder like this, so it will not be something you are doing. Does the unit still do this when you are recording from batteries. If not, this would point to the power supply having poor regulation. If the gear is brand new, I suggest returning it to the supplier and get them to sort it out for you. Marantz service is generally pretty good.

I am more than happy to answer any other questions you may have about it, please get back to me here, or use the ASK function to go straight to me :) If you are still unsure, have problems, or we need to look at the situation more deeply, then before you give a rating for this advice, hit the ASK button Thanks for using FixYa, If you consider the advice I have given you as sound, a FixYa rating is a great reward for my efforts to help you. Cheers.
