The analog input stage ...
Thanks a lot for the explanation! I'll try to keep in mind it, expecially when I'll use battery box and mic in on my M10.

If dual recording is on and it's set to LINE mode, and there's a line in but no mics plugged into the mic in, does it automatically record with the internal mics in addition to the line in?

Apologies if this has been asked before...I'm new to this thing.

Pretty sure the answer is yes.

DUAL LINE mode is how I typically use this recorder, yet I always have an external preamp running into both the mic and line inputs.  However, if I was to unplug the external mic input I'm pretty sure the recorder reverts to the internal mics.

Keep in mind that you can turn on/off PIP to the mic input in the menu.  I'm not certain, but I don't think that setting affects the internal mics.

Right on thanks for the info.

Got Any advice from experience for Recording Bo*b Dyl0n from the second row center of an arena?

Dr2d
Sound Professionals 12v battery box
CA C.A.F.S.

Gain LOW MID or HIGH?
Input Level?
Mic Power - On or Off

Plug into the Line?  or Mic?

I just tested this rig standing under a subway
Mid Gain at 67
and Low Gain at 99  both sounded the best without distortion.
plugged into MIC

You'll need to go Mic-in to allow level adjustments to be made on the recorder.

Mic power off (although it is not likely to matter) when using an external battery box to power the mics.

Can't say if you'll need Low or Mid Mic-input gain setting.  Depends on the sensitivity of the mics and the SPL during the recording situation.  If set to Mid gain and you are still overly close to clipping or already there with the input trim at 67, switch to Low gain.
