Well, I'm now a (hopefully) proud owner of this deck. Plan to give it a four channel run tomorrow night with a couple local/regional jam bands.
Wish me luck.  ;D

make sure to hit record!  seriously!  one thing I love about this deck is if it's on you can see levels as if it was in record/pause.  one thing I hate about this deck is if it's on you can see levels as if it was in record/pause!

Hope it works out well.  :coolguy:

For a while I was thinking that I was going to upgrade from the DR-70D to something else, but I think I'm sticking with it. I haven't yet run into a situation where I really need more than 4 channels, and despite the usability annoyances the quality of recordings I'm getting is consistently very good.  I'll be saving my money towards more mics in the future.

Yes, it's different from other decks that you put into "REC/PAUSE" mode first and then "release" the transport to start recording like you would on a tape deck.  But the easy way to tell is that Red LED on = Recording.

You guys can say that again...I had to do a search to see how the darn thing paused.  :facepalm:
I think I'll be ok with it, enough of the features and functionality are similar to the DR-60D which is my regular recorder.

I'm looking for something that'll power the 70-D and want to get some feedback on this adapter which seems ok to me-
http://www.ebay.com/itm/2A-Wall-AC-Power-Adapter-for-Portable-Digital-Recorders-Replace-TASCAM-PS-P515U-/252400322438?hash=item3ac43b4786:g:XQkAAOSw5VFWMrN2

I have the TASCAM PS-P515U for my DR-60D but want something in case I'm running both recorders which happens every now and then.
Thanks folks.

Not a wall wart but I have two of these

General consensus is they will run the deck forever!

Not following you.  Do you mean remaining time available?  It shows that on the top-right under the battery icon.

Seconded.  Many of us have this battery, and while it's not really 20,000 mAh it does a great job powering the 70D for long hours.

OK, yes on the large running time clock that's true.  How is that a problem?  I'm really lost here.

If the clock isn't moving, you haven't pressed record.

I really don't see how Gordon wasn't clear on this.
If you have a problem relating to the Live Music Archive (http://www.archive.org/details/etree) please send an e-mail to us admins at etree(AT)archive(DOT)org or post in the LMA thread here and we'll get on it.
