Question about Fostex MR16HD/CD Digital Recorder

1 Answer

Guitar Input Level

I have recently bought the MR16 in order to record guitar on it, but when I hook up my guitar, foot pedal, and amp I cannot record anything. I have tried and got it to record some, but I don't know how I did that and even then it was very hard to hear. I really could use some help on how to set up a guitar, amp and foot pedal so I can record music.

Around 6 to 10 days ago I paid a seller for a Pyle Pro guitar foot pedal and I have not yet received this Pyle Pro foot pedal.


You need to contact the platform (ebay, amazon, ect) that you bought the item on to get the contact info for your seller. You can also contact the payment service you used (PayPal, credit card issuer, etc). If the seller cannot provide proof of shipment, I'd consider cancelling the order.

What do i hook plug from marshall dfx foot pedal to amp and guitar


If you're asking if the foot pedal goes between the guitar and the amp or straight in to the amp then it's the latter.

This is for the takamine DI+. Is there a wiring diagram as to how to cable from my guitar to the amp? Basically how do you connect the DI+ using stomp boxes. Also, is their a special cable to use to...


Most of the pedals are daisy chained right from the guitar. The output of the daisy chain goes into the DI box set to ground lift. An XLR to XLR cable goes from the DI box to the amp or mixer. Do NOT try to loop the sends and receives of the amp through PEDALS! The sends and receives are LINE LEVEL which is too high for pedals. The sends and receives are for external effects MODULES and EQ's that take line level. Some of those effect units have a foot switch to turn them on and off.

Garageband not picking up the guitar through imic


You could try double clicking on the amp image in the Guitar Track panel on the right of the screen, and when it spins around, you should see controls for Input Source, Monitor, Recording Level etc.
Select Monitor: On
I found that to be the source of my frustration, when I couldn't get any sound.
Hope this helps

How to set up with amp and distortion pedal


With everything switched off. I will surmise that you are using the onboard battery with the foot pedal and not a power supply.
1. Plug lead from guitar/instrument into INPUT side of pedal
2. Plug lead from OUTPUT side of pedal into amplifier INPUT.
3. Turn amplifier volume to about 10 o'clock - to stop blowing your ears out.
4. Turn volume up on guitar to acceptable level.
5. press foot switch on pedal and adjust pedal controls to suit your type of distortion.
6. Play like Hendrix.
Good Luck
ps Just as an after thought rechargeable 9volt batteries are the way to go. I've been using them for years as I always get caught up in the power cable.
If you're going to add another pedal like a Phaser, Compressor, Flanger or what just use small connect leads between each pedal but always, always put the compressor pedal last in the line.

How does my effects pedal hook up? Through the jacks on the back or through the guitar jack in front?


You need two cords..
One from the guitar to the pedal ( where it says guitar or IN )
Then the other cord from the pedal ( where it says amp or OUT ) to the amp..
The pedal also might take a battery..

Guitar amp channel switch repair


Replace the switch. You gave no make/model number for your amp but if it has a jack for foot pedal operation of clean/dist function then try that. (on most amps) it will switch in spite of a bad front panel switch.

I've just got a tascam dp01cf recorder and i'm having trouble with it, its abit hard to understand what to plugs in were, i'm using a electric guitar,a yamaha magicstomp effect pedal and a amp. also i'm...


Hi,

You have a couple of options with your guitar input. You can either plug your guitar directly into the right (Hi-Z) input and use the Tascam's onboard effects with it instead of your effect pedal.

You can put your pedal in the chain between your guitar and the (Hi-Z) input. So guitar into pedal is, pedal out into Tascam Hi-z in. (Still doesn't use the amp).

Or my preferred method for recording guitar would be to mic the amp. In that case you'd just input a microphone (placed about 8-12 inches from your amp) and record your guitar that way. The mic would be plugged into either one of the Tascams two mic inputs to record the amps speaker output while your guitar, pedal and amp would just be hooked up in the normal way.

Please note: Never plug the output from an amp into any of the Tascams inputs. Those inputs are line-level and the speaker output level which comes out of an amp out would damage your Tascam.


To get a backing song into a track in your Tascam, you'll have to first, using a PC, get the song into a 16 bit mono Wav file format. Then you'll have to use the USB import function to copy that wav file onto your Tascam onto the CF media cards fat partition. From the you'll be able to import it into the Tascam choosing which track it will import into.

Cheers,

BD
