Re: Any tapers out there? Need some advice.

Thanks again for the info, guys. And sorry for my ignorance. I did not purchase the Behringer power supply. Again, as a newbie, I didn't understand what a phantom power supply was. I am using In Ear Binaural Microphones from Sound Professionals and purchased their 12V mini microphone power supply. Attempting my 1st taping this weekend.

Good luck! I Googled your recorder to see what you should set your gain at and found this:

"Peak Reduction function (optimized for music recording) automatically sets gain while recording"

...I don't know very much about recording, but the recorder automatically setting the gain may not be a good thing (or it could be the best thing ever, I don't know). And when looking at pics of it it looks like there's only a mic-in and no line-in:

"Plug your own microphone into the 1/8" mic/line input - the DR-07mkII will supply plug-in power for mics that require it!"

...so with that, I don't know if an external power supply is necessary. But like I said, I don't know very much about recording.

Only problem with doing that would be the faster draining of the internal power supply. Using external power for the mics (battery box/pre-amp) would lengthen the recording time.

Re: Any tapers out there? Need some advice.

And just tape away like you own the place. I've been recording everything I go to since 1990 and have only been kicked out once. Actually, I wasn't let in so I blew it off.. it was U2.

Lately I've found that screwing around with electronics at shows isn't even raising eyebrows.
I don't even bother trying to "hide" gear because I'm more looked at when I'm digging around pockets and whatever else. I put my recorder in my shirt pocket, easy to check levels and I'm done. Batts in the pants pocket, cords up my shirt with mics on my glasses with a hat that provides no cover if you're actually looking.

Have fun, that's the key,
AZ
