Thanks.  You have a lot of great info there, but I didn't feel the need to copy it here and instead linked the first page of this thread.

Awesome thanks 8) And I didn't realize that when HOLD is engaged, that the gain knobs don't work either ??? I would prefer EVERYTHING to be locked while hold is ON, BUT the gain knobs!

And I wish that you could monitor channels 1/2 and 3/4 separately as well!

About the MONO/Stereo/2MIX settings. Which one does the Sony M10 do? Mono or stereo files? Because id prefer the 70D be the same setting as the M10 is [either Mono or Stereo]. I understand what the 2MIX is and I don't EVER see a need to use that feature :)

M10 makes a stereo track, panned hard left and right.  STEREO on the 70D would be what you're looking for - it creates two stereo tracks every time you hit REC: one of channels 1/2 and the other 3/4.  Just be sure to check your PAN settings under BASIC to make sure they're set correctly.

Edited to better match the Issues with the Firmware Requests, and added the Petrol PS617 gear bag which was reported to work well (and have lots of extra room).

I'll add it to the list, but it's discontinued so it might be hard to come by unless you're looking used.

So I haven't run 4 channels with this yet, but you're saying when I do I won't be able to see levels on channels 3/4?  They're just blank? Or it just copies what is shown for 1/2? Confused.

Has anyone ran this with 4 channels WITHOUT phantom power at 24/96, with AAs? I'll be using my 70D with preamps in front of it most of the time so... If so, how long did it run? I am getting mine Friday, and don't have the scratch for the ravpower batteries yet, so I HAVE to use AAs :)

Also, at what level does the 'Peak' light actually come on? Other than those two questions, I think I have the rest figured out ;)

TIA

Also, upon looking at pics at B+H, I noticed that the front screen DOESN'T show you what bit/sample rate you're recording at. Is this true? And everyone is running firmware 1.02, correct? I already have it downloaded onto my PC 8) REALLY wish the screen showed what bit/sample rate you're recording at!
