I hope a plantain is ok, I don't have any bananas. But really there isn't much to show, it's basically a deck of cards sized.

Proper grammar would be- Yes, I have no bananas.

Is that a plantain in your pocket or are you just happy to see me?

I've received mine today, and there is, in addition to the LEDs, a meter on the display. I will note though, it is quite small.

how responsive is it? does it peak hold and for how long?

There is no peak hold, I'm ok with how responsive it is. It's a tiny bit slow on claps etc., but not bad at all.

A V3 and this seems perfect. Compact.

It's the bit bucket we all dreamed of 10 years ago. Even at over $1k, I bet it would have become dominant in the section back then.

Now a days, given the mixpre line, the zoom series, and all the other small 4 and 6 channel all in one recorders, I suspect fewer tapers will buy these, but I'm intrigued.
Recording:
Capsules: Schoeps mk41v (x2), mk4v (x2), mk22 (x2), mk3 (x2), mk21 & mk8
Cables: 2x nbob KCY, 1 pair nbob actives, Darktrain 2 and 4 channel KCY extensions:
Preamps:    Schoeps VMS 02iub, Naiant Littlebox, Naiant IPA, Sound Devices Mixpre6
Recorders: Sound Devices Mixpre6, Sony PCM m10

Home Playback: Mytek DSD 192> McIntosh MC162> Eminent Tech LFT-16; Musical Fidelity xCan v2> Hifiman HE-4XX / Beyerdynamic DT880

Office Playback: Grace m903> AKG k701 / Hifiman HE-400

In the manual, the pictures of the meters show only -40/-20/0 markings.  Is that user adjustable in any way?

It doesn't seem to be user adjustable.

^ Thanks.  It would be nice if they had some marks in between -20 and 0, maybe a tick at -12 or -6.  Perhaps that can be changed in a firmware update.

When does Zaxcom's patent on their Neverclip input gain strategy expire?  I'd like to set input trim based on microphone sensitivity and not otherwise need to actively adjust recording gain until I switch to different microphones.

Finally got to tape a show with this. It was a bit of trial by fire, My Bloody Valentine is about as loud a band as one might come across. It's not the best sounding show, but I'd say it's pretty accurate for what it sounded like. Sample is attached, and if you are into Dime, you can find the whole sethttp://www.dimeadozen.org/torrents-details.php?id=632775.

Hello Tim,

Have you had the chance to record another show with this recorder?  If so have you used mics other than the DPA 4060's?

Have you used this recorder as a bit bucket yet?  Thanks.
