Question about Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

Recording problem I'd be very pleased to know if anyone else has tried recording on one of these. I bought it because it has Line-in and a better sampling rate for live recordings (built-in mic) than most MP3 devices, but it appears to lack any sort of level control, so when I record anything close by (e.g. piano) it quickly peaks and distorts very noisily. This seems a strange omission, and I wonder if mine is faulty, or if I should be looking for a software update - the current version is 2.600.300 I'm recording at 32k using PCM, which seems to be the least compressed. Any feedback gratefully received. James

    Not a generic problem - it's a Teac MP-350

  • chessell Jan 13, 2008

    Thank you for the prompt reply. I thought that an external mic might be the answer, too, but the internal one is fine at lowish sound levels. The problem with both that and the line-in is that there is no adjustment for level, or even an indication of what it is! I just tried recording at normal line level from my hi-fi and it is clearly much too strong a signal for the Teac, which crackles and distorts like mad.

    We have three other MP3 players, and they all have automatic volume control for their internal mics, even though they have low sampling rates...

As the built-in mic is probably the weak link I would suggest getting a external one with a built-in preamp and output control. Or a separate preamp with microphone. If you want to make good quality recordings using the highest sampling rates you should go for a better microphone.

I bought a new KB37 a couple of months ago. Today, while using it in GarageBand, I noticed that the low C key (the lowest on the keyboard) was not working. Help please...


I have used GarageBand, but I have never used the keyboard you mentioned. I have a lot of recording equipment myself which I fix on occassionm, but I would be very cautious and simply send the unit in for repair or replacement. You'll feel better about it when it works the way it was intended to work. Try the link below. Thanks!

Recording setting


live recording (using mic) can be great depending on the speakers and your position from it .(dj live up close on the speaker can be destorted) your recording setting should be 1/4 up since the dj most likely is full. TRIED NOT TO RIDE THE '0" RECORDING MARK. the bars while recording should be tapping '0'.the mic on the iriver is quite powerful . now if you are using a line in option (this will take out the liveiiness)

Intructions for recording Mic or Line In and SAVING to PC


Hi

Recording is quite easy:

1. To record from the Mic, simply press the button on the side of the player with the red dot and speak into the mic - its the small hole at the top left of the player.

2. To record line-in: connect the small mini stereo jack to the player and the other end to the line or headphone output of a recording device. Use the menu to find 'line in recording' (its towards the bottom of the menu). Monitor the input signal and adjust its level using the VU meters on the V Plus. Using the volume control on your player device, ensure that the signal is not too loud so that it clips, nor too soft (it will be noisy). When ready, press the red dot button. Press it again to stop recording.

3. To find the recordings and transfer files to PC: using the Zen Explorer, find the folder 'Recordings' on the Zen. Your recordings will be stored there with file names such as "Line In {date, time}.wma". Simply copy and paste these files onto your PC and play them with Winamp or Windows Media Player. Note that they are in WMA format, not MP3 format, but that this is a better standard than MP3 and can be played on most MP3 players.

Hope this has helped, and now can someone help me - my Zen V Plus screen is dead, and I didnt' even drop it.

How do i recod on the ctk-900 casio?


Try running a line out from your keyboard to the line input on your mac. Go into system preferences, select sound, click the input bar in the upper right corner, select line in/Audio line-in port, then adjust your input volume. You should then be able to record from your keyboard. If this doesn't help you, please let me know. I'm a recording engineer that uses a MacBook for all my multi-track recording projects. Thanks & good luck. Mark

Connecting Pioneer SX-737 Receiver to computer problems


I've been recording LPs for over a year now.

I've got the turntable outputs plugged into the phono inputs on the receiver amp.

I'm taking the Y cord (pair of RCA connectors at one end, mini plug at other) from the Tape Record (these are what you'd use to send a signal to the tape deck for recording) on the amp to the "line in" on the sound card. You may want to look up the specs on your sound card to make certain that you've got the plug in the correct socket. There may be a "line in" and a "microphone" socket. Use the "line in"

What recording software are you using? Audacity is free and is ok. I'm using Goldwave (costs ~$50) and highly recommend it. MUCH better than any other package I've tried. Just google "goldwave" to find it.

The recording software should have an option for selecting / specifying a source. If you have "microphone" selected and the y cord going into the "line in" socket, yoiu won't get anything.

Hi ya guy's! i just bought the famous canon fs100 and i'm starting out with a 1 gb sd card, when i'm recording a message pops up saying "it may not be possible to record movies on this card" and...


Have you already formatted the card on the unit? Sometimes with a Canon recorder if the card is not formatted on the unit itself it will not work. Also try to check the resolution that you are recording at.

Sony Hi8


If you see the line while in the camera mode (actually recording a scene), then the line will be on the recording most likely. Check your tape for damage by lifting open the front of the cassette (tab on left side of tape), pull tab back while opening cover and inspect for creases or damage. Either of these cases will be non-repairable (bad recording). If the tape path is out of line the then it may be possible to have a tech realign the tape path to correct problem.

Line in


You need a device that does not come supplied with the player.
Making LINE-IN recordings
Line-in recordings are used to record music tracks in digital format directly from an external player.
1. Connect an external player (like a portable CD player or a stereo system) to your player via the docking
cradle. (this is an optional accessory which is not supplied with your player)
2. Insert one end of the audio cable to the line-out connection on the cradle and the other end to the device
you want to record from.
3. Go to the main menu of your player and select Recordings > Start LINE-IN recording.
4. A message Connect line-in will be displayed.
5. Press 2 to start line-in recording, at the same time, start the playback on the device you want to record from.
6. Press 1 to stop recording.
7. Your line-in recording will be saved on your player as a PCM file (.wav extension). You can find this file
under Recordings > Recordings library > Line-in recordings.
