What do your ears say?
hard to say for me because unless i know what the music sounded like live i can't tell how it translate to a recording
all i can say is that sounds good or not
and saying a unmodded unit sounds good is fine in one situation but without having a modded unit to compare it too its not a true representation for me to judge
Mics - AKG ck61/ck63 (c480b & Naiant actives), SP-BMC-2
XLR Cables - Silver Path w/Darktrain stubbies
Interconnect Cables - Dogstar (XLR), Darktrain (RCA > 1/8) (1/8 > 1/8), and Kind Kables (1/8f > 1/4)
Preamps - Naiant Littlebox & Tinybox
Recorders - PCM-M10 & DR-60D

Mine is unmodded but I run a BMp2+ and an SD MP-2 in front of it.  I like the digi out put on the UA-5 so a mod on channel 1-2 would be useless in that situation.  It also allows me to run what ever pre I want on that particular set of channels.  The only time I have ever used my deck with out a pre is when getting a SBD feed.  The board feeds sound just fine at least to me.

I have a modded unit. I won't hesitate to run schoeps cmc6>r-44 and it sounds very good.
Does it sound as good as when i have the V3 in front? No. But if i can't carry the entire kit,
a pair or two of actives and just the r-44 will make a very good recording and is a very small
rig.

I think you'd only be able to do this in post cause if you try to delete through the finder on the recorder, it's all or nothing on delete....

What acts have stood out so far at the 'roo?

Earlier in this thread I wrote about some relatively minor problems that I'd had with the R-44--one odd case of RFI, and finding that the phantom powering in my particular R-44 was slightly below specification when four relatively high-current microphones were connected simultaneously.

I'd just like to balance that by saying that I've continued to use the recorder since then for about a dozen live recordings (some 2-channel and some 4-channel), and have had no further mishaps with it.

--best regards

you should have had channels 1and2 modded if you were only planning on running 2 channels with mics b/c when you select Stereo x 1 it only activates channels 1 & 2. So you must record in Stereo x 2 in order to utilize your modded channels. I assume you are having an issue with not having enough memory on your card to cover all 4 ch.
