Question about M-Audio MicroTrack 24/96

1 Answer

Freezes while recording

Sometimes, when I have the micro track in recording mode it freezes.  This tends to happen after it's been in recording mode for 15 minutes or more.  I don't have the problem on shorter recordings.  The screen will read that it's recording (showing the round dot in the upper left hand corner) but meters are not moving.  When I press the red recording button to stop recording there is no response.  The round dot does not change to a square.  The menu button does not respond.  I cannot get rid of the "recording" screen unless I press the power button which turns off the whole machine, and, of course, I lose the file that I was recording.  I have been recording in the mp3 format, so I always have plenty of recording time left when this freezing problem occurs.  Any suggestions?  Thanks--

    I have the exact same problem...I have just tried a recording three times and it froze at 7, 2 and 22 minutes. I updated the firmware (again), but I'm not convinced this will fix the problem as I've done this before and the problem returned.

    During recording - yes usually during an extended session - device locks in the middle of record screen. No level activity and no response to any controls. Have to shut and restart, losing my file. Then I can resume, but after losing much of the session. Not acceptable. If I can't find a positive solution, I'll have to find another device for my needs.

I'm been searching for slutions to this as well - It's happened to me numerous times, so much so, I've almost thrown it on the ground to see how many pieces I can break it into...

    Ok, so I'm signed-up as a "solution provider" -oops

    Well, then I'll offer this: use ONLY the memory card types/brands that M-Audio has certified.

My Sony PCM-D1 recorder recently behaves erratically by sometimes failing to record on both channels using its built-in microphones.

I'd contact the service beforehand. If you think, that that behaviour was due to a software, ie. firmware issue, google for Sony PCM-D1 service manual. I wouldn't precisely describe the procedure, but generally a some ten-click-sequence is required for entering the service mode which allows for factory resetting the recorder. I don't think that the reset procedure can harm the device, but for example, if one attempts to reflash the firmware and the prodedure fails - due to power problems, for example but also due to other things which could happen - then the PCM-D1 could be regarded as busted. The repair includes qualified service with SMD repair facilities and a new board to replace that failed one. Therefore such a complicated service mode sequence, just as a precaution I think.

All the best,

On my Olympus DS-2, although I have erased all my files the recorder shows that that there is little or no room for recording. This is the first time this has happened to me.

The amount of room available on the Olympus DS2 are determined by two things:

1. Avaiable Memory
2. Recording Mode

With that said, if you have formatted (erased) the files on the recorder and there is little recording room left, you will need to change your recording mode. I would recommend changing it to SP mode.

I hope this helps.

File import in 4-track mode impossible

Convert the audio to Mono WAV (16Bit, 44.1KHz). This can be done by using Cubase(Hope you got Cubase LE with Zoom). In an empty project import the audio, then mark the whole track using the Draw tool and then got to File->Export. Here select the above options and export. Import this file into Zoom H4 either by copying directly into the memory card or through connecting the Zoom to computer ( I copy it directly into the memory card's STEREO folder). Now if you import it to any project, it will appear there. You can now use Zoom H4 as a Karaoke device!! Anyway, sad that Zoom H4 doesn't support stereo tracks in the 4Track mode.

Uploading files into projects

Most of the time you have to convert the wav files to another format Such as MP3 or WMP. there are converters available for this purpose online.Google audio converters. Maybe you will find one that you can afford . Or even find freeware.

H4 randomly stops recording on cubase le

I may possibly have solved this. I didn't realise that when I log off from Cubase, the ASIO driver returns to the Multimedia ASIO driver, which seems to be the default setting.

Every time I want to record with the Zoom H4 in future I'll need to reconfigure the ASIO driver to the H4 one.

I thought once I'd set the driver, it would remain there every time Cubase booted up. Apparently not.
