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.

How can I increase the loudness of the CDs burned on the internal CD-RW drive?

You can use a free software audio editing and recording program called Audacity. Using this program load your stereo track(s) into Audacity, then look in the effects menu and select normalize. Make sure to set highest loudness level to 0 db, which is the maximum digital volume level. You can hear the difference in volume when you use the test button. If you can't still get enough over all volume level with the normalize feature then you will need to compress and limit the stereo track, but I don't suggest getting your over all loudness levels that high because it ruins and lowers the dynamics of your music. Another words when you compress and boost the over all loudness of your album then all your music is at the same highest audio level which is very ear fatiguing. It may sound better to you at first at louder volume levels but you will quickly learn to hate it over time because it does not sound natural. That is why most music today is all about loudness and ear fatigue. And because of the loudness wars going on today every Record company is trying to have the loudest album out there thinking it will sell more copies. It is all false baloney, it really should be about the quality and dynamics of your sound instead of how loud it is.

My MR16 says HDD full- so I erased 12 songs and 10 wav files to free up space. No matter how much i erase it still says HDD full when i attempt to record. do i have to initialize and lose everything to...

I had the same problem. After some reasarch I found out that even if you erase a song the data is still on the recorder in "hidden files".

What you have to do is download the WAV manager software from, then copy all your files to your PC, reformat the hardrive on the Fostex, and copy the song files back on to the Fostex form your PC.

I know it's a pain in the ****, but I guess that's one reason this thing was so inexpensive.
I still am very happy with mine, but after 3 years of constant use in my case, some type of maintenence can be expected to happen.

On my sylvania smpk4099 how do I adjust the volume

(its been a while since you've posted this so I am pretty sure you figured it out but just in case you haven't) you hold down on the play button (while listening to a song) until the volume control shows up on the bottom and then use the fast forward, rewind buttons to adjust. you can also hold down the menu button (while still listening) and it will take you into the EQ options. Hope this helps!

I have recorded a bunch of songs on the vf 160 but i cant figure out how to burn them on CD. I have put the cd in and followed directions off the internet but it continues to say "Void" and will...

To burn an audio cd on the vf160 you can only do this under two conditions. One, you can only burn mixed down program material; and the other condition is saving program to disc through back up file where you must pre set the Clipboard IN/OUT parameters.
