Phantom power on my Fostex MR-8 MKII

I have tried every thing the manual tells me to activate the phantom power...and it will not come on.It just blinks and retuns to the home screen,and when i return to the input selection menu to check if the phantom power is on, it says it's off,even though i turned it on...any help?

I had the same problem. Your recorder may need a software upgrade. Go to the following link and upload the "Product Support Bulletin." Follow all the steps. You will need to go to the Fostex web page for the update. My phantom power has worked since I did this.

Hope it helps.

Bounced trks 3&4 to 7&8 clicked on wav file button canceled says out of capacity


You have a memory problem. If you are using a flash card for memory or a CD drive or perhaps you have configured an external drive, you need to free up some space. Try deleting tracks or songs you don't need anymore.

Each song is independent on a CompactFlash
without affecting other songs. You can give a desired song name for managing recorded songs
(see pages 23 and 91).
Recorded track data is stored in a song as mono WAV files.
The MR-8mkII can convert the two WAV files recorded on tracks 7 and 8 (L and R) to a stereo
WAV file (see page 115).
You can export the converted stereo WAV file to your USB-connected personal computer, and
use the file by a music software application or make an original audio CD on the computer using
a CD burn software application. You can also burn an audio CD by using an external CD-R/RW
drive connected via the [USB HOST] port of the MR-8mkII (see page 115 and 123)

I'm buying a Rode NT1A, it comes with a shock mount, pop filter, xlr cable etc. What else besides a USB converter cable to I need to have this mic work it's full potential on a PC?


Hi, what else do you do think you will need? I don't think you will need any other thing except that before you use the mic, the switch for the phantom power on the microphone is to be activated .Without the phantom being activated, the mic will not work.

It can only be activated with a mixer console that has a phantom activation on it. After connecting the mic to the mixer,activate the phantom power on the mixer and switch on the phantom power on the mic,and problem solved.

Note: Mic will not work if no phantom activated on the mixer.

That all you will need .

Thanks for using fixya....

I have a Fostex MR-8 MKII 8-track recorder, and as soon as I turn it on it says 'card error' and 'illegal format'.My compact flashcard is 2GB Sandisk, how can I solve this problem?


First you can format the flashcard FAT-32 on your computer. If that does not help your card maybe broken or the brand is not supported. Than try to use another brand. Kingston and Transcend always make te best choice.

I am having trouble getting the trim set right. i have audio tech condensor mics, one for vocal and one for guitar, i have them in inputs a and b and the phantom power on. but i cannot find a level where...


Make sure you do NOT have a monitor speaker that is active! If you have a monitor speaker, it is POSSIBLE that there is a SUPERSONIC feedback going on that you cannot hear. This would saturate the system and distort your recording. Studio mics have a lot of gain and a wide response.

Importing track to Fostex MR-8MK 2


I just got an MR-8 and had the same problem. Google and download Wav Manager...convert your files to mono (.wav) or else it won't export. I searched everywhere for several days and stumbled upon the solution woohoo!!!

You take the .wav from each track from mr-8 and insert to desired track in your software. Use a CF Card reader to make this easier.
