Here's an online album that I recorded in October with a DR-100mkIII and an Audio-Technica at4050st.
https://jasonanick.bandcamp.com/album/rhythm-future-quartet-live-at-49-west-2
For a 2 piece rig that ran me about $1000 I find it quite acceptable. There is an abundance of red hot
fiddle and guitar playing on this recording.
HEY! It's the POTATO mic! (see TeamPickle and the long term story arc of how the AKG 522 M/S can't be repaired and so it was replaced with a 4050st!)

Sounds really good! If band camp didn't stream the whole thing, I might just buy it!

I think CD baby and amazon only give samples of every track, so the techies can't hork the stream, not that I have done that! I'm fine with streams as long as I have flat-rate bandwidth!

Great recording!  You really got a nice balance between all of the players.  Where was the 4050st positioned?  I can't see it in the pic.

Thanks for your nice comments. Actually the room in the picture is not where it was recorded. It was recorded at the end of a shoebox
shaped room. The room has tables and chairs and seats about 40 in a nice cozy atmosphere. There is no stage. The mic was about 4 feet back
from the band and about 4 feet in the air angled slightly downward. All instruments had small amps but I was also getting a lot of ambient
sound from the acoustic instruments. I did some post processing in Digital Performer and burned with Bias Peak.

Great recording and nice band!

Hi
New man in here.

I been looking at field recorders with good preamps. The Tascam DR-100mkIII seems to get praise for good sound, but I wonder if it's smooth sailing doing overdubs (recording track on track)? I know it's capable, but have any of you owners used it in this regard.

Besides field recording, -(where it seem to shine), my idea was to use the unit as a standalone digital multitracker for demos. Tascam does not promote the DR-100MkIII for this kind of use and I wonder if it's user friendliness. Portastyudio style  :headphones:

Love the fact that you can record to a SD card, and import to the computer, but I wonder if you can do monitoring, -playback of recorded track while recording a new track?

Basicly I want to record music/sounds with quality without opening the computer. So user friendliness is of key importance (not too much fiddeling with sub menues etc...)

Thanks  :)

I have not seen any functionality for overdubbing. I could easily be wrong, as I do not use the feature, but both within the menus on the deck and within the reference manual http://tascam.com/content/downloads/products/912/e_dr-100mk3_rm_va%20(1).pdf , I do not see this function on the DR100MKIII.

I don't think you can multitrack on the DR100mk3, but you can do it on a TASCAM DR-05 with the latest firmware.

I think I may have misunderstood this sentece in the manual, believeing it was overdubbing - track on track:  Dual format recording function allows simultaneous recording of both WAV and MP3 files

Something like the Zoom H6 Six-Track seem to be more of what I need, but I'm never buying a Zoom (too noisy preamps).

The Portastudios seem to be of a lesser audio quality where Tascam cheepo on components vs e.g. DR-100Mk3. If anyone know of a different unit that offers great preamp(s) and multitracking, please let me know.

How does the DR-05 preamps and mics measure up to the top end DR-100Mk3..?
