Question about Edirol R-09 Digital Voice Recorder

1 Answer

How do I get rid of the shhhhh noise when I record people talking? I'm a digital storyteller and bought the R-09r after others recommended it to me, but the shhhh noise is just as bad as a cheap recorder I bought for £60. I need clean audio as this is an important part of my work. I am also hearing impaired and need to know what the correct settings are before I start. I used headphones whilst changing various settings and thought I'd got it right but when I played it back on the laptop the shhhhing was there.

    The Edirol R-09HR has 2 internal mics situated on top of the unit and I place it on its stand when recording using the remote control to start the recording. I also use a Griffin 0404-LAP multipurpose stereo Lapel Mic with it, but get the shhhhing with that too - incidently, this continues throughout the recording not just at the beginning. Because I record in people's homes, shcools, sheltered housing it's difficult enough to get a decent recording without this extra interference, and I find I spend a great deal of time trying to minimise/eradicate these noises to the detriment of the audio. I'll certainly try out your suggestions. many thanks for your response.

You need a low pass filter over the microphone, use a piece of high density, well in fact experiment with all types of densities of "Foam" and place it in front of the Mic Hole and this will work well, Sometimes wool or fur, or anything that will absorb all the low frequency signals without reducing quality will work, thats why you see those "Socks" on the microphones in the movies. Another way, is to get a VOX switch, this start recording at the sound of your voice, and although fast will usually cut off the first syllable or so, or the first few Msecs of time when it starts this can be used to advantage in this case.
Conversely, some VOX's that are built in, can cause a noise at beginning of recording.. Sometimes the noise is the Motor noise, and it's picked up as a low frequency noise, this can happen in cheaper units, an earth a bit loose, bad connections, to name a few.

When i make a video there is always an interference noise over the video even when the room is silent and stuff, any way of getting rid of this noise from my camera ?

It's tough to give a detailed answer without knowing the make and model of your camera, but I can give you one big hint.
Turn off the sound on your camera. Use it for what it's good for---recording images. Record the soundtrack using something designed specifically to record sound, then combine the two in the editing stage.

I have just bought a digital tv and can't tune the video in

If you are talking about an older VHS or Beta recorder, the tuning for recording is done by the player itself. If you are using an outdoor antenna to recieve your local stations to record, most likely you will need a digital TV adaptor to convert the over the air digital signals to an analog signal the tape player can understand.

Microphone gives a really boomy distorted sounds on certain chords with an acoustic guitar

Hi Nic

Thats exactly how you do it:) Some times it doesnt matter what you do, you will get strange resonances. Careful EQ is the best way to tone it down. Some guitars will present boominess on certain notes, thats just the way they are. Acoustics rely on this boominess to some degree. Good luck and happy recording. :) Happy to talk more to you about it.

Noise block doring playback of D-VHS tapes

* Do not record program in DVHS mode on an S-VHS cassette. Use of S-VHS cassettes will not allow for maximum performance and may result in head clogging. Use only D-VHS cassettes as recommended in the instruction manual on page 27. * Make sure that the DIGITAL 3-DNR lamp is ON when playing back a cassette recorded in D-VHS mode. If not press DIGITAL 3-DNR so that the DIGITAL 3-DNR indicator illuminates. * When block noise appears on the TV screen, clean the video heads with the DFC-2 D-VHS Head Cleaning Cassette (continue up to 3 minutes total). Please refrain from using any other head cleaning cassettes as drum damage may result.
