best 8GB CF card for Microtrack 24/96?
« on: October 21, 2006, 10:39:58 PM »
Assuming 8gb is currently the largest size CF card I can get, what's the best price people have found on one suitable for the Microtrack 24/96? i.e. slow enough for audio work?
thanks

Costs for these are dropping by the week it seems.

There's a guy on ebay selling the newest 16GB CF cards (they run around $400).  I have so far avoided ordering one, and don't know how they work in any of the audio devices we usually love and revere (until they screw up, when we hate them and the comapany they rode into town on).

heh, the battery will die long before you ever fill a 4gb card. Kinstonston and sandisk are the best on the market, just dont buy sandisk cards off of ebay!

get a external batterypack, or if possible, use the wall charger (venue dependent)
Seriously, the band makes the music. Tapers just point mics in the right direction and hit "record".

That's good to hear!  The last patcher I had complained about my AKGs, fluffed schoeps for about 15 minutes, stayed patched in, and farted on me all night long.

So can anyone confirm that the "Kingston Elite Pro 8GB Compact Flash (CF) Flash Media Model CF/8GB-S "

works with the Micro Tracker?  (I don't see it on the list, but the 4gb is...)

I have used the Kingston CF/8GB-S flawlessly for 4 months now.  Generally I run 24/48 so think  I don't have to worry about tape flips that much. er uh, button pushes.

My MT can run for about 20 hours on my Walmart Lithium and a Todd R juicebox.

I really don't know for sure on that time, though, because I never even came close to taping for that long.

I say if you get a sandisk on ebay go over the auction carefully:
http://taperssection.com/index.php?topic=57532.0

After this happened I got an UltraII off ebay from another vendor with no problems. Just be sure the auction wording specifically contains the word "sandisk" and keep an eye out for anything fishy that points to a counterfeit item.

Peace,
Ben

I think that it is pretty safe to say that the 2 gig seamless autosplit will never be fixed with this unit...

Still works just fine for me though!!  I'll be cranking up my new sd722 soon but the MT 24/96 will still be a very active stealthing machine for me.

One thing that really annoys me is this machine cannot forward or rewind after playing a track for a few mins....anyone notice that the forward and rewind switch is SOOO slow and non responsive - hardly move the music at all?

I use the Sandisk Ultra II with no problems in my Microtrack, my PMD671, and my Nikon D2X. It gives me 4 hours of 24/96.
