Recorded a moderately loud show this weekend (think overhanging line array speakers like you get at big venues and festivals)

Sounds Professionals Cardioid mics into CA-Ugly battery box into the R-07. I taped A-B configuration about 15-20 feet from the array, which was about 15 feet up.

I had the R-07 running at an input of 35 and it gave me a nice clean, dynamic recording with plenty of headroom and no colourisation of the sound. Loud parts were clear with no distortion and more subtle parts still had definition and detail.

At 35 it meant that close clapping which was picked up louder than the music could be brought down in post editing without any clipping.

Hope this helps.

Re: Printing rubbing off on your R-07?
« Reply #61 on: July 12, 2019, 04:00:14 PM »

I notice the printing is already rubbing off on the front on my R-07 (MENU, MARK etc are almost gone) - which I bought in October last year.
I've babied it and everything else looks pristine, so it bothers me a bit.
Anyone with the same experience?
yup, worn almost instantly on mine
Thanks for the heads up.
It bothered me enough to return it to the shop yesterday, to have it fixed under warranty. Roland will probably just replace the front panel and the problem will show up again, we'll see.

Just to wrap this up. Roland didn't fix the problem in due time (according to local consumer laws) so the shop had to give me a full refund. Since I don't know if Roland has improved their printing in later production, I guess I'll be looking for a different recorder.

**I’m thinking it’s probably fragmented, I’ve been deleting bits and pieces here and there... I’ll delete everything and format the card and hopefully will be OK for the important show tonight.

there are benchmarking utilities you can use to test sequential and random read rates

Recorded a VERY loud (100db) show this weekend. 20-25ft from speaker, which was about 15-20 feet up.

Card mics into CA battery box. Setting at 22 did the job.

So: loud-ish concert/indoor venue  = 30 to 35

Very loud = 20 to 25
