Title: Tascam DR-05 settings guide
Post by: emalvido on October 18, 2018, 04:21:32 PM
Hello to all

My two mic options using recently purchased a Tascam DR-05

OKMII/R>A3>DR-05
SP-CMC-8>ST-9100>DR-05

Loud rock music:
With the OKM´s  manually, the recording level is on the minimum, but the meters hit all the way up,  usually the red led blinks peaking and overloads if its extra thump/loud overloading.
The A3 battery box does not have levels
Is there a way to prevent this? wich one recomend to use?
-Peak Reduction
-Auto Level
-Limiter

When taping with the SP-CMC-8>ST-9100
I can turn the level up/down on the ST-9100 and can record with no overload problems.
Also, if there is a settings guide recording with the DR-05 could some one point me where to look it?

Thanks

Do you have the DR-05 set to line in or mic in?

There’s a setting for “mic power.” If you turn that off it should treat the input as line level.
