Has there ever been a recorder that does this?  Just curious if this is even possible.

I had a write error with the Tascam DR-2d once. It displayed a message when it happened. Unfortunately, I didn't look at the display until after the show. ;(

That's never happened to me on any of the decks Ive run[D8 DAT/JB3/722/R9/M10/70d], aside from maybe digi noise on DAT tapes or something wrong with my mics or powering of mics/preamp! Very strange! That would be super cool if the F8 warned you that the write error was going on, but I'm not sure if that's possible with a firmware update, is it?

To be fair, I think that was my fault. I ran the deck in a closed bag during a festival in a very hot environment (around 40°C/104°F). It was probably just too hot.

Anyone running any of the lowepro bags? What used to be nova 4, nova 5 etc. i was thinking about picking up something thats kind of cheap compared to my big portabrace for summercamp. In the past it has been a dust bowl. I like the lowepro aw models but not sure what the size is of my old nova 5 to correlate it to the new model #'s

It's aimed at film sound mixers I think.  They color code their wireless mics.

I'm all about the round knobs though.  Easier to fine tune a round knob than a chicken head knob.

Dustin, this is my FAVORITE gear bag of all time, especially for festies, since its a backpack and not a shoulder strap system! Ive had all of those LowePro/Portabrace/etc bags with shoulder straps, and this one is cheaper and easier to carry stuff! I am sooo sick of carrying gear miles at some festies and spots in the cities I tape and my shoulder KILLING ME because of the shitty shoulder strap system IMO!!!! Well, this is the solution! This thing can get HEAVY, and should still be a breeze to carry with your health issues, since its a BACKPACK ;D You can run cables in the top and bottom parts, and there should be plenty of room to run your VMS sideways like I do, and to run your F8 with stubby right angle connectors like you already have ;)

EDIT: I can also EASILY carry ONE mic stand with this, since it has a pullout compartment on one side that holds the leg/s of a mic stand! Then you just strap down that side and you can easily carry a big mic stand+umbrella in the side! This is SOOO badass at shows, since you have your HANDS FREE, since this bag can carry one stand hands free ;D Here's a few pics!

I ordered a green set yesterday and they are shipping today.  Total cost was 21 euros Paypal as a friend to avoid fees.  I thought green would be easier to see in low light situations.
