Question about Fostex Mr16hd 16 Track Digital Recorder

1 Answer

When I try to record an audio CD on the internal CDRW from a mixed down song in the VF160 it records it, but adds a horrible, cyclical "hiss" (very loud) over the recording rendering it useless.

I haven't personally used this equipment, but 9 times out 10, a hiss or noise problem is due to damaged or incorrect cables been used.
Check your cables.
Check your gear. If the inputs are TRS (1/4") the make sure your cables are to. This goes for any connection your recorder: balanced cables.
If the inputs are unbalanced, then you would use TS (1/4")

Bounced trks 3&4 to 7&8 clicked on wav file button canceled says out of capacity


You have a memory problem. If you are using a flash card for memory or a CD drive or perhaps you have configured an external drive, you need to free up some space. Try deleting tracks or songs you don't need anymore.

Each song is independent on a CompactFlash
without affecting other songs. You can give a desired song name for managing recorded songs
(see pages 23 and 91).
Recorded track data is stored in a song as mono WAV files.
The MR-8mkII can convert the two WAV files recorded on tracks 7 and 8 (L and R) to a stereo
WAV file (see page 115).
You can export the converted stereo WAV file to your USB-connected personal computer, and
use the file by a music software application or make an original audio CD on the computer using
a CD burn software application. You can also burn an audio CD by using an external CD-R/RW
drive connected via the [USB HOST] port of the MR-8mkII (see page 115 and 123)

How can I record my songs to my tablet or my laptop


The best way is to use the USB output from the Fostex. Connect the USB cable from the Fostex to the USB input of the notebook. A Windows computer should show a USB Audio Device in the device manager. If not, you'll have to get a driver from Fostex and install that. But it should just work, it did in my Vista notebook. Then simply get any number of recording software packages (Windows 8 may have a built-in app). I've used Cool Edit and Reason 4 for recording and editing. You should not record the songs using the notebook's microphone input because (1) the analog noise of a recording generated by the notebook's A-D converter is horrible, and (2) you'll have level and impedance matching problems, even after purchasing something like a pair of Bogen WMT1A line matching transformers. Once you've got it recorded, put it in the cloud and download it onto your tablet. I don't think tablets have USB ports, but maybe yours does.

You can download a manual from the tascam site for this model. as long as you pre-named your songs, they should show in the menu without mastering. You cannot burn any songs without mastering your songs first, however. They will not appear in the create cd section for this very reason.
Record, master,burn.

I believe you have to adjust the levels DURING the bounce operation... I don't think you can do that after.
