Nbox platinum basic operation?
« on: October 26, 2015, 11:11:13 PM »
So just got it. Toggle up for on, down for off? And I remember reading thst the batteries last forever? I know there is a thread, trying not to go blind reading it all. Thanks!

I've never run one, but don't overthink it.  Connect it all up, toggle the switch, check for levels, and that's about it.  Not much to it.  Sweet box!  Good luck!

Other than the on/off toggle, unplug the mics after each show.  If you leave them plugged in, it will continue to drain the batteries.

Thanks guys, so basically this is a mini brick. Awesome. Perfect for my talent levels and general functional level at shows.  8)

I wouldn't describe the batt life as "forever" -- more like a show or two...

I did a test last spring and stopped after 2.5 days.

I did a test this weekend using the Powerex MHR9VI Imedion 9.6V 230mAh rechargeables that I normally use. I started everything at 6am on Friday morning and stopped last night at 60hrs. The batteries in the M10 were changed 3 times but the nbox was still rolling. The wav files from Sunday didn't look any different than the wav files from Friday. I don't think I would ever intentionally record with the same batteries for 2.5 days but it is nice to know you can.

I do not believe the mikes being plugged in will drain the battery in my experience

I confirm 40 hours plus.

I most certainly will.  I did it twice.  Also confirmed by Nicky.

The 9v or the other ones? 
A lot of people run a race to see who is the fastest. I run to see who has the most guts, who can punish himself into exhausting pace, and then at the end, punish himself even more.
