I tried going without a battery box for this show (noise rock band):

It came out OK, but I think it would have been better with the BB. I had it set on recording level 1, so I didn't have anywhere to go if it had been much louder.

WOW, this thing is TINY.

So what are some basic settings I should use for my first show? I plan on using just a battery box and not my pre-amp. Loud rock show level to start?

Congrats! Before you throw away the packaging, do yourself a favour and check if operates as expected. Not to alarm you, I think they are mostly OK, but mine had to go back because of a sticky button, and another poster earlier in this thread reported about some clicking during regular recording. Better identify this sooner than later.

Seems as if I should run CA14>BB>Line In>Level about 10 to start...

I tested it and detected zero issues, no clicking, etc...I always save the box/packaging anyways.

I tested out the unity gain level with my FP-24 last night and came up with 3-4 on audio in. Is this consistent with others?

for those who use this as a player, i was getting nuts have to retag LP sbds with sequential track numbers (1...20 or whatever, vs 1-8 for each disc, with 'disc number' field of 1-3 ) as A10 doesnt respect 'disc number' field

to solve this problem dont browse by artist.... broswe by folder, where it loads up the tracks alphabetically, problem solved

Used model at Adorama for $189 if you've been on the fence due to price

Wanted to share a rig picture, I bought a water/dust proof case off amazon for about $8 to hold the A10, it's a great fit for the a10 and mics, however little snug to also fit the battery box.

This is my tbar with the AT831 pair in XY going into an ugly bat box, then to the A10 in the case. Need to still get proper shockmounts for these little mics, the lav mic holders work well enough though.

Need to get a shorter audio cable, and one with a right angle so I can zip the case fully, however I'm pretty happy with just letting this hang while I monitor with my phone.

Going to run with this setup tonight at a local bar/venue

How are you guys setting up your rig with the A10?

Have a roll always with my gear, I just looped the rubber band from the bat box on the stand knob for the picture - tape is a way better idea for tonight, the "sunglasses" case has a fabric wrist band I hooked on another knob.

Out of interest, can I ask why you run XY? Do you get good results?

I also run AT831s open, and usually DIN (actually they're a little closer together than DIN, but still facing at 90° to each other).
