Tascam DR40 Digital in?
« on: November 09, 2021, 11:31:35 AM »
I'm trying to find a digital input on a DR40, is this available on this unit or will I have to use our Tascam DR100mk3? I have an option to patch out of someone but would like to use the dr100mk3 with mics and use the dr40 for the patch. Bob and Melanie

Well, that sucks. Maybe I'll have to screw around with our old microtrack and see if I can feed a digital signal into it using it as a bit bucket. Thanks for info.

Do people really notice a difference between digital in and feeding an analog line to mic or line in? The quality of gear these days is so good, the sonic quality difference (that one can actually hear) - is it significant enough to worry about it? I'm not being snarky - I'm genuinely curious. Digital input had actually faded out quite a bit by the time I started recording.
If you have a problem relating to the Live Music Archive (http://www.archive.org/details/etree) please send an e-mail to us admins at lma(AT)archive(DOT)org or post in the LMA thread here and we'll get on it.

The reason I am asking is that I'll be pulling a patch from another member here who has front row balcony seats, we are 5 rows back, I want to make his efforts to patch me to be as hassle free as possible for him , no gains to adjust, etc. I'll prob. run another rig from my seat as back-up.
