Recorders paired with V3
« on: May 25, 2022, 04:26:42 AM »
What recorders are you pairing with the V3 these days, especially analog recorders? I'm looking to have a smaller setup but still use the V3 because I like it  :)

Right now I use a V3 via SPDIF out to an R44. When I want to take less with me, I only take the R44 (which has the oade supermod). But I still like the sound coming through the V3 better.

I was using a DR100mkii when it first came out but I had a lot of issues w/ the spdif connection to the V3 and I didn't want to go analog. Plus I don't really like the dr100 that much so I rarely use it.

I have a little R-07, but I don't know where I put my dual XLR > 1/8" cable so I haven't tried it yet.

My v3 has the toslink out port installed but I'm not really seeing optical on newer recorders.

Yes.
Can’t personally confirm the 661 jives with the V3..  but the 661 (both SPDIF coax and analog) is a great unit!

… but I can confirm that the Tasman HDP2 jives well with the V3.  HDP2 is a wonderful deck, although would be considered big these days.

Most newer, smaller handheld recorders drop these types of features in lieu of real estate on the unit itself.  I ran SKM140, V3, R44 for years and if you have what you already like then why change it now?  I used to use an AES to SPDIF cable to go from the V3 to R44.  I stopped using the toslink jack when I dumped the JB3

I had a 661 and got rid of it because I didn't like it, but this was before I got the V3, so I didn't try it as a bit bucket.

NVM, I had the 660, not the 661, lol. And I sold it after a year. I'll check the 661.

For travel mainly. I hate taking all this stuff with me when I need to get on a flight. I have plenty of options w/o the V3, looking for options with it.

Cool thanks. This is quite small too. How's the internal battery life?

There are pics of the 661 on eBay.  I zoomed in and on one side is a coax digital in.

I still run my hdp2 with my v3. Not only is out of date but it's bigger than what you're probably looking for also.
but thats what I pair with my v3 if I ever get out anymore.
I have the optiout on my v3 as well but the p2 is spdif so it is irrelevant for me now.

I always use an external battery for it, sorry.  It uses 4 aa batteries.  You can also use a micro tracker as a bit bucket for the spdif.  I do this often as a backup.

I have/had a MTii. I can't remember if I sold it or not, or where it is if I still have it. It failed on me a couple of times but I can't remember if I ever paired it with the V3.

Does the V3 need an update from Grace to jive well with the D50??
Or am I thinking of a different deck?

Does the V3 Mic inputs run hot?

I have a Shure fp24 and need attenuators to use it for anything louder than acoustic guitar unamplified.

I have run both a MixPre and a V3..  and nothing that I have encountered runs as hot as a MixPre.
YMMV.
