I just noticed there's a firmware update for the DR100mk3 (FW v.1.05) from last February:

Thanks for the heads up on this...I'd missed that.. I obviously need to check the Tascam website more often!

So  I got a DR-100III and pair of DPA 4061s with DAD6001s Reddot to XLR connectors. I want to record some Rock/Grunge/Metall shows, so it will be pretty loud...
What would be the best settings to do that?

Pad seems to be a good idea.
Limiter aswell.
Dual ADC cannot be used with the limiter.
Dual level recording also seems to be a good idea, but it cannot be used when dual ADC is used. Using dual level with the limiter should work though (the limiter only affects the louder signal).

Should I use the low cut filter? Options are Off/40/80/120/220Hz...

So what would you say is the best combination of settings for a loud stealth show, where checking levels is not possible at all times...

thanks

You have a superb recorder and awesome mics!

Yep. Not only a good idea: it's something you need to do.

Nope. You don't want that, trust me.

What I've just said. Do use Dual ADC, sir

Dual level recording also seems to be a good idea, but it cannot be used when dual ADC is used. Using dual level with the limiter should work though (the limiter only affects the louder signal).

I wouldn't go that way. In my experience you can always remove undesirable bass on post.

So what would you say is the best combination of settings for a loud stealth show, where checking levels is not possible at all times...
Look, the DR-100mkiii is not exactly small. It's not huge, but it's far from easy to hide. Add to that the big XLR connectors  :o. I'm no DPA expert, but if I were you, I would buy an adapter (DPA has a wide variety of adapters) terminated with a right angle plug to use the Ext In (either Line or Mic) . Well, stealth or not you need to check the levels. But as a really (really!) basic guide, if you're runnning Line In, be ready to set your recording levels up to 9 or 10 (12 being the highest level) even for really loud shows. But if you're using Ext Mic (even with the Mic Pad engaged) I doubt you're going to exceed recording levels greater than 7 or 8 (28 is the maximum).

thanks

You're welcome

yeah, i’m not sure why you chose the dr-100mkiii if hardcore stealth is your thing. i had a dr-100mkii and ended up selling it because it was too big and bulky for that purpose. i would highly recommend what the other guy said by getting some sort of option that allows your dpas to terminate in a 1/8” plug, and then sell your dr-100mkiii and get a roland r-07 instead. the r-07 is much smaller and it also takes care of your concern about checking levels, because the r-07 has a companion phone app that lets you start and stop recordings and set levels all from the app without ever touching the recorder itself. this is something you can’t do with the tascam.

I confess that I thought about selling my DR-mkIII because of its size. But I love the feel and performance of this recorder. I've never used the Roland R-07. But as an Edirol R 09 and R 09HR user I'm sure that your recommendation is spot on. In this category I would also recommend the Marantz PMD 620. Impressive little machine. Take care.

It's a tradeoff, but I'll trade off the larger size of stealthing with the tascam for gaining the security of the XLR connection between the mics and the recorder. The unit fits in the front pocket of baggy cargo shorts or the front pocket of most hoodies, you just need to set the levels conservatively and sneak a peak or two during a loud passage when the show begins, then set and forget the levels.

yeah, i don’t want to imply i’m crapping on the tascam at all. i owned the dr-100mkii for about a year from july 2017 to july 2018 or so, and made a number of great recordings with it in that time. i’m sure the mkiii is even better. once i got a mixpre-6 a few months ago i no longer needed the tascam for open or light stealth situations, and found it too big to be comfortable crotching for heavy stealth situations. thus it was kind of caught in a no-mans land middle ground for me where it would just collect dust, so i sold it and put the $ toward an r-07. the tiny size makes the r-07 great for crotching and the ability to be fiddling with it from your phone without ever touching the unit itself is great for situations where you have a security guard staring at you all night. but yeah, if you don’t mind the extra bulk, the dr-100 is a great unit, and the xlr inputs are a nice feature.
