Wow, great amount of knowledge here, thanks everyone.
I am thinking of getting this recorder to try some 4 channel stuff. I currently use a Tascam DR07mkii and am very happy with it.
For 4 channel it seems the DR2d doesn't allow level adjustments on the mic input?
If I was doing 4 channel, couldn't I just adjust the gain/level for the mic input using the preamp (in this case a Tinybox). Then adjust the line level SBD or 2nd set of mics using the Dr2d?
That seems overly easy, so maybe I am simplifying it too much.
Finally, if I am just recording 2 channels from mics and controlling gain with the Tinybox, does it make any difference whether I use the mic or line in?
Thank for any clarifications. There are some great deals on this little machine right now.
