Such a pimp...

I too think of the AAs as primarily a bridge to cover an outage of external power, and check the teeny battery icon on the mp every hour or so to make sure it's showing external power rather than batts.

Soo teeny, or maybe it's my old eyes 😀

I have a post-it taped to the front of my MP6 reminding me to check that the timer is counting so that I know I actually pressed record.  I should add a reminder to check the battery icon too.  I can't see shit anymore, especially in a dark venue

My guess is that the super short times with the 4 AA sled is with alkalines?

A little feedback.

I went a head and bought 8 pcs PKCell nimh cells from Amazon.de
https://lygte-info.dk/review/batteries2012/PKCell%20AA%202600mAh%20(Green-silver)%20UK.html

Unfortunately these cells did not perform at all.
Some was DOA and refused to take charge, other cells showed a capacity of only a few hundred mAh.
Two cells out of eight managed to reach their nominal capacity.

I returned all to Amazon.

Gonna try the Ansmann instead.

Isn't it easier to look for the red "record" light?

ya made this mistake at the MMJ show in Boston a few weeks ago. Was so pissed when I looked down and realized I hadn't hit record. Won't make that mistake again.

I forgot to arm channels 3&4 for a sound board feed for a show.  I did however pass the signal to a friend and he managed to get the SBD channels.   :facepalm:

question - how do you run a feed out of the mixpre 3/6? I'd guess you would use a 3.5mm cable from the stereo out plug, but how do you control which channels are fed out? TIA.

You have to route the channels you want to the output!  I have my SBD channels routed to the output.

Thanks Checht. I had to go into system/custom setup/outputs, and change Output to advanced. Then I can view/update the outputs from the main menu. Appreciate the help!
