Here we go! In a matter of 30 minutes I have figured out most of the features we would use.

- Easily engage 1 or all 8 channels for recording and 48V
- Records a stereo mix to channels 9-10
- You can pan and add/lower gain to each channel of mix
- You can add limiting and selectable frequency roll off to each channel.
- Size, while it is not the size of SD it is still very manageable.
- It has an internal 10 x AA sled which gives you back up for over an hour
- It has two DC connector inputs. I opted to use the 4pin xlr.
- Records to 1 or 2 compact flash cards. 32gb would give you 7.5hrs. So if you want to give your buddy(or a client) a copy of the show you can just hand him off the compact flash.
- 25pin dsub connection which allows for 8 digital in/outs
- Metering is alsum. You can set the your reference level bar at negative 9, 14, 16, 18, 20.
- You can set the peak hold, how long it holds for, the peak db level, and choose whether or not to use the reference level.
- You can enter what kind of voltage battery you are using so that that the meter can accurately read the remaining power.
- the switch from AC power to internals or DC power to internals was flawless (I tried disconnecting)
- You can lock sections of the face instead of the whole thing at once.





Inside the AR-P82. the main compartment holds the HS-P82 and the outside pocket for it holds the 8 channel snake. The AR-P82 comes with an RM-Multi Extreme which is the largest of the rm multi series and has an outside pocket of its own. The RM-Multi main compartment houses the Bixnet BP160 (153 Wh) Battery, Schoeps bodies. I only have two in there now but it could easily hold 4 wrapped in pipe insulation. The outermost pocket holds a plastic container which holds the mics.


Schoeps nice and and tidy in a padded lightweight plastic box that fits in the outermost pocket.


full access to all the 8 xlr ins and stereo out via xlr on 9-10


you can protect the connections by velcro'ing the sleeve round the 8 channel snake

Automatic saves or is it like the 680?  I am very jealous.  I've looked and looked at those but just could not handle the price.  Looking good!

Does the dual CF card offer other 'modes' of operation besides dual recording? For example, could you only have it write to one card at a time for twice the recording time? Fi so, are they hot swappable? Do they have to be the same brand/size? I should probably just RTFM.

you can choose the drive to record to. not sure if you can hot swap while you are rolling.

Can you playback any tracks as you're recording? How many tracks does it have?   NO.


Sean,
The HS-P82 is a multi-channel recorder, not a multi-track recorder. It doesn’t over-dub.

Isn't channel synonymous with input? So eight inputs mixed down to the stereo mix? What I would like to know is if there is a way tor record on input 1 for example and have tracks 2,5,7 playing back while recording on input one.

What happens at the end of the month?  Do they really think they can jump the price from $3500 to $5000 and still move these units?    I think there is a reason the price was lowered.   If you know more about this, please share.   My experience in the past has been that when a price is reduced this much, it means that a new product is coming out, or it simply cannot sell for the higher price.  THANKS very much.

Here is a sample from Dr. Dog at Tipitinas on Thursday night. I basically just dialed in the stereo mix by backing the onstage mics and panning the SBD and mic. I did not use the limiter or roll off. Mixed using etymotic HF5 in ear monitors. quite frankly, I am very pleased with the quality of the pres and the A>D. Ultimately I would like to cut down on my processing time by being able to dial in a listenable mix at the show. Of course If I get home and don't like it, I have all the source files.
