Is there any battery life indication?

Maybe I missed it in the manual, but I cannot find any way to see if the battery is getting low.

There is a battery life indicator on the main menu of the *stereo* front page. I feel that I've seen one in 4track mode, perhaps, but I don't see it anywhere there now. Anyway, if you back out to stereo mode, you'll see it, lower left.

SD Card Write Speed Too Slow


Hey Jack! Certainly you've found a solution by now but maybe some poor soul is seeking the solution like I was.I had my Pockettrax CX saying "Memory Full" although I'd deleted everything. What helped finally: I formatted the SD. Now I've got all the memory back. Don't know if that would help the recording speed. but maybe. IMPORTANT: SAVE ANY FILES on your LAPTOP before formatting the SD.Here's how to format the SD:Go to Menu.Click on "Common Menu"Scroll down until you get to "Format"Press "Yes""Formatting SD" comes up and, Voila,You've got more space.

Hello, My M-Audio microtrack 24/96 battery runs out so fast. What do I do? Is it time to change it? Is getting a new battery expensive? Do I not charge it long enough? I let it charge for at least 4 hours...


Similar problem to mine, and until I get my question answered, I can only propose a temporary solution.

Get a USB cable that fits the bottom small USB socket on your M-Audio Microtrack, but with a standard USB plug on the other end. Such a cable should have come with your Microtrack to begin with.

Replacement cables can be found at Best Buy, Radio Shack or most electronics stores or department stores. If the original cable is broken, please save it for reference to make sure you are getting the exact same type connectors when getting your replacement.

As I learned the hard way, not all small USB connectors are the same size, but APPEAR the same.

So, what are you connecting on the standard USB end?

A battery.

That's right, a rechargeable battery that features a power-only 5 volt USB receptacle. This will function as your A/C power adaptor does, only on the go.

The external rechargeable battery I use is a Black and Decker "Power to Go" unit that measures approx. 5 1/2"L X 3"W X 1" D.
It has both a low-draw two-prong AC (yes, it has an inverter and I never use it) and the desired 5V USB receptacle. You may find a better solution WITHOUT that A/C inverter. Just ask around for a rechargeable NmHh (better than NiCad) battery with a standard USB receptacle.

If the Microtrack's power is off when it is connected to the 5V power source (be it A/C power adaptor OR my proposed external battery), it will go into charge mode. With a fair amount of charge, remove the external power, and it boots up into operation. Then, re-connect the external power and your Microtrack is running and recording for a considerable longer time, depending on the charge and condition of your external battery.

Now, if one observes the LCD screen while running off of external power, the upper right corner box indicating the internal battery's charge shows "CHG" instead of the black square (Full charge) or half of the box in the form of a triagle (half charge) or any variation thereof as normaly indicated.

Someone might say, "But I don't want to have to carry around all this extra stuff! I want my old battery life back!"

Well, that's precisely how I feel as well.

But until you get your original lithium ion battery replaced (and at what cost for parts and labor?), you have to ask yourself if being an original condition purist is serving your situation well, or if this proposed add-on can get you by in the meantime.

Take care.

Why would my ds 4000 loose sections of the recording and then pick back up again.


If you have the VCVA set to on maybe the actuation level set too low; the recorder stops recording when the sound level does't reach that level.
Adjust the level to a higher value.
Here is a link to the DS-4000 Instruction Manual

Olymp. DS-330,None of the Buttons respond at all,only hold slider


If you remove the batteries and reinstall, does the display indicate Hold at some point? The hold button sometimes breakes and doesn't activate the switch. Pop off the hold button and move the internal switch manually.

Headphone socket detached from casing.


I was having the same problem, but finally got it to crack open gracefully. There are quite a few screws, maybe about 7 of them. Once you get all of them out (including that one beneath the battery), pry open from XLR side. It should go up a good few degrees. From there, it should just come apart.

The headphone jack is a few layers in and you'll have to undo cables and one ***** towards the front, but on the inside. It holds the push tab to eject card.

Good luck!
