When i have recorded something and play it back the recording is phasing
My first thought is your play back volume is too high and your file choice is wrong. While your playing back your recording, press the down arrows on the ring of buttons on the front of the recorder. The top and bottom button turn down the playback, the right and left buttons turn down the "recording" input sound. Set your file area setting to "all files". Better yet set your recorder to these settings it will work well for most recordings. I got this on a 3x5 card and check to make sure I got these setting before every recording.
1. Input "on" 2. Recorder onboard speaker "off" when recording. ( not a big deal I just do it) 3. "low cut" set to 80 ( this will help filtering house background like your AC unit sounds from lights and if out side some sounds from the open air ) example; 124hz is the note B. So we don't want cut that out. So 80 is good for indoors haven't used it outside yet. This next setting is key for phasing and squalls and recording at all and that number 4. 4. Setting "Area" to "All Files". ( Not sure what all files does but it started working after I changed that to All Files so I don't care why just do it.)
Once you get these settings right all you need to do is make sure input is "on", and watch the peak light which is left of the record light. Make sure the peak light doesn't come on very often, turn down your input volume just a tad if it is, just under that is perfect. I always got to think of this to and that is make sure when you playback you must "turn off" ..."In put". That input on or off and and input volume is what I am always thinking about when working with this recorder. I have had this recorder right in the middle of us with a drummer, bass, two sometimes three guitars and a conga player. All playing in a circle. I set the recorder right in the middle of us on a camera try pod about 4 feet high and the recording are great. Just watch the peak light and it will do surprisingly well. I love it and the band is impressed. I sometime put it front of us when we play in a stage straight line but the drummer is not heard as well. So stick it right where you are and watch the peak light so it won't come on. enjoy, I am. patbham
