Fostex mr16 eq/presets

I would like to know if there is a way to pull up an eq menu to adjust the levels while mixing down. example: if you need to adjust individual track levels instead of sticking to the factory presets. the recorder has 33 eq input presets, but i can't figure out if there is a way to adjust high-mid-low levels for the vocals or instrument tracks. the manual is not clear. any info would be appreciated.

thank you,

greg hacker

In short - No. The Eq menu is the only way to affect the frequency levels on the inputs, but if you select stereo buss and listen to the inputs, you can hear the effect of each Eq on the relevant input.

I can only hear static through the headphones on my Fostex MR16. The recording sounds fine when I transfer to computer, but I can't hear myself playing.


They make headphone amps that will take a line level and boost it in volume until it can drive headphones. I'd get one of those, and plug it into any available "line out" or "rec out" on the back of your Fostex. Sounds like the D/A converter section that feeds the headphone output has gone bad, and my solution will get you around that.

How do I increase the overall loudness of a CD once it has been burned


What you need to do is find an option called "normalise" this makes the sound at the same level for all tracks on the CD. However I should point out that even some commercial discs are recorded at much greater levels then are needed. In otherwords they are loud!

HI WHEN DOWNLOADING MY RECORDINGS TO MY DELL 1720 PC THE DOWN LOADED PRODUCT HAS HARDLY ANY VOLUME. THIS DOES NOT HAPPEN WITH PRE-RECORDED MUSIC THAT I DOWNLOAD. WHAT AM I DOING WRONG?


Ensure your Master output volume is at an acceptable level when recording. The machine will only save audio at the levels which it is recorded.

Also be sure to adjust levels accordingly when bouncing tracks down to one channel. I ussually prefer to set the EQ for these tracks to flat (or zero), as you will have much better results doing the EQ in final mix.

Maybe stupid question....is it possible to record 8 separate mono tracks on this thing? I cannot seem to select only track 5, 6, 7, or 8. When I try to record onto 5, for example, it is impossible to not...


I believe you have to adjust the levels DURING the bounce operation... I don't think you can do that after.

I would consider using a computer based editing program to handle more than 4 tracks...

My Fostex mr8 hdd "full"


If you can reformat the drive after dumping out anything you want saved MIGHT fix the problem...

The unit MAY not be able to tolerate fragmenting when you delete a snippet here and there... It may require large blocks of contiguous space.

Fostex MR 8 HD\CD adding treble and bass?


It APPEARS that the MR8 does NOT include the ability to EQ. They have delay effects and the like built in, but no EQ.

To answer your question then, you would need to have an EXTERNAL EQ unit and loop the vocal through that unit to do EQ to do it right.

When mastering, the "powerful/natural/and bright would be filters that will emphasize the bass (powerful) or the treble (bright) but these are really not EQ's and you can ONLY choose one at a time.

I want to know what an User EQ is?


Most Audio devices will allow you to adjust how the music is played. an EQ is just something that can increase or decrease audio Frequencies. there are usually preset EQ levels that will make Jazz, Classical, Pop music sound better. this is done by increasing the High notes or increasing the low notes to give you more of a bass sound. User EQ settings allow you to manage the frequencies more to your liking. If you want to here the high notes better or adjust the middle to hear the vocals better then you can increase those levels. Or if you love your bass sounds then you would increase the lower frequencies to give your music more boom.

I can't figure out how to adjust the bass on the JVC KD-HDR30.


Hello hawk713, Like with many other JVC receivers, adjusting the bass is done from the "EQ" (equalizer) mode for one or all of 6 presets: ROCK, CLASSIC, JAZZ, HIP HOP, POPS, and USER. To adjust it, select the desired preset mode, use the left/right rocker (on volume control) to scroll to the desired frequency, 60, 150, 400, 1K, 2.4K, 6K, and 15K, and then turn the volume control up/down to set a level from -5 to +5. 60 and 150 adjusts the bass, 400, 1K, and 2.4K adjusts the midrange, and 6K and 15K adjusts the treble. Then you select whichever EQ setting sounds best with the particular music you're playing. Hope this helps.
