Here is a sample from The Payback last night in Denver using my modded DR70D.  Sample is 24-Bit/44.1 kHz.  All I did in post was increase volume +1.5 dB from original source recording.  The Payback is: Eddie Roberts, Zigaboo Modeliste, Oteil Burbridge, Gabe Mervine, Matt Pitts, Scott Messersmith, And Robert Walter.

Sounds great, thanks Cheese 8)

I'm really excited to run my mk4/mk41>NBob KCY>PFA>70D and see how the Schoeps sound straight into the 70D. Because damn near every HQ mic I've heard straight into the 70D has sounded great ;D 8) I'm REALLY trying to make it happen and get one in a few days 8) Just waiting to hear back from Justin Marinoff at Pro Sound ;D This lil $300 deck has LOADS of potential IMO! Now as long as they are RELIABLE, then I think Tascam really hit one out of the park on this one ;D

B& H bumped the price to $288 or so, but apparently has some used ones for $219.  If you're gonna do the mod and void the warranty, might as well go with a used one.

Thanks everyone for the music samples for the DR-70. They are impressive.

Bought one last week off ebay. Organized a new bag and bought the battery you all recommended with the left and right connectors also. Did some test with the stereo. Running mics with little box into DR70 then just mics straight into the Dr70 to see what it sounds like with no preamp in front. Also ran the internal mics to see how they do. Did tests with the camera running output from Dr-70 and it did not come out very well. Did not have my levels set right.

Quite impressed overall.

And I just looked on the Tascam site, and new 70D firmware came out one month ago. Is that what everyone is using? Its fw v102. Is that what everyone is using, or are you just using the firmware that came on it?

I record stereo BWF files on the original firmware that came with the unit.  The firmware upgrade didn't seem to address anything I thought I needed.

Cool, thanks guys! And MIC GAIN on LOW? Plan on running my mk41>02ib on 1/2 and my mk4>pfa>70D on 3/4 to try out the 70D preamps first time I run it. Should be really cool to hear the difference, if any lol :)

If any of you DR70 owners also own(ed) or used an R-44, which do you prefer and why do you prefer it? 

Feel free to comment on ergonomics, feature set, powering options, pre-amps, outputs, ease of navigating menus to find the option you're looking for, etc.

LOW

I've run both stereo and mono settings.

I set it to mono last time out because I only had a mono XLR board feed (the pass thru from a powered speaker)

Hey guys, quick question. When HOLD is ENGAGED, do ANY buttons function? Or is it like a complete lockout like the m10? Or does something stupid like stop actually stop the recording when on HOLD? You never know lol!

TIA

Cheese, did you ever figure out the weird spikes you had back in the first thread with the FP24? Read thru the whole thread and didn't see where you figured it out. Pardon me if you did and I missed it.
