KORG MR-1 pt.II
« on: November 02, 2007, 08:18:59 AM »
to surmise what we covered in 16 pages of the first section of MR1 discussion...

- it sounds really good
- tricky to power (needs a lot of current)
- some units have bugs, or better put, some people have had some issues w/theirs... but the majority seem to be solid rocks (mine is).

am I missing anything ?

LMA recordings and what-not


Live music: hauling around a Marshall stack whose output will get squeezed through a single SM57, then mangled by a Guinness-soaked mixer and shoved through suspicious-smelling power amps into a pair of grungy cabinets whose best days were before they left the factory, all of which are under the control of an engineer who would much rather be at home watching television.

I asked a question in the last one that went unanswered - anyone run a SBD > MR-1 yet? Just wondering if there is a need for attenuation based on the input level of the MR-1.

what is an SBR sound board feed?
yes, you'll want to attenuate.  either at or before the korg's input.

future of playback?
hopefully, we'll be mastering our own SACDs at some point.  otherwise, we just have to settle for what *we think is superior* mastering yielding kick ass PCM recordings.
I"m still very happy with redbook.  so DSD>PCM (redbook) is A-OK w/me.

I just finalized charging of external batteries and connected from USB out on battery to power input on the MR-1 and was able to record 7+ hours nonstop in DSD format.  "Boy, I love this country..."  and it wasn't so long ago I was flippin cassettes every 45 to hour to record live.  I wonder what 25 more years will bring.  Hope I'm still here...

I think I want one of these.
Suppose I should start paying attention to this thread.
