i think there is a voltage setting lower than 9. check it. if there is, a setting like six volts should work fine...


like i said, the manual explains what this setting is about better than i am right now...

You shouldn't have any issues running the R-44 off of 9v.  I haven't run into any using the 9v DVD batteries.  Rather than set a final voltage value, I've always kept the Ext-Power setting on "Adapter" and had AA batteries in the deck's tray.  That way the unit sees the external battery as an AC source and, if it should run down, the R-44 will automatically and seamlessly switch over to the internal batteries if need be.

thanks for the feedback.  it sounds like i have a couple of options...

1) set the final voltage to 9v and run my battery at 12v.
2) leave the R-44 set to "adapter", run my ext. battery at 9v and keep AA batteries in the R-44 tray as back-up.

i like options.... options are good.  i'll experiment and see what works best.

option #2 is the way to go i think.

I forgot it did that.  I'm not aware of a setting to prevent it.  I sometimes set markers on playback from the machine for convenience, but I never set them during recording.  But in that case you wouldn't know they are there in the file (using them while operating playback of the recorder) until you copy the files to the computer.  You can set your FLAC encoder to ignore them along with other metadata, or probably use other WAV tools to strip them out.

Always wondered about this myself.  I usually just strip them out in Audition.  A minor annoyance but, for those that still burn playable CDs, there are some burning programs that will not burn a CD-R if there are markers on/in a track.

An update on the sync business, here's my Tascam HD-P2 hooked up over word clock to the R-44 as master



(SP/dif is hoooked up to something which isn't on)

Recorded 30mins with 2 claps, no drift.

I haven't had the issue with the markers before, does it need the firmware updating?

$150-250 is the going rate of recorder PB bags - so $200 seems ballpark to me

this question may have been asked and answered, so apologies in advance if that's the case...

when using 4 mics and recording to two separate stereo tracks (stereo X2) the individual track meters (1,2,3,4) show good levels with no clipping but the stereo mix meter (L-R) shows hotter levels with mild clipping.  can someone tell my why this is happening and what i should do to correct it.  thanks. 

added info: i always set the inner and outer level knobs at 12 Noon, and individual track levels peak around -6 db (if it's a very loud show levels will peak at -3 db).
