As far as I know, you can only monitor the mic-in while recording. Heck if the original firmware did allow you to switch the headphone monitoring, I'd go back to it, batteries be damned. But yes, the button does toggle between the levels.

I just wish it had a little onboard mixer like the H4n, would make things so much nicer.

Does anybody have a 2D with the original firmware and comment on the headphone monitoring on the dual recording?

you obviously didn't use a DR-2d with the original firmware  ::) I got about 35 minutes on a set of NiMHs

Ha pretty much--I updated the firmware before I basically started fiddling with it.

I have a loud show coming up and want to keep it simple.

CA14 Cards (modded by Chris to run of PIP)-> DR2d (mic in PIP on).

Should I run a 20db attenuator? ( from coresound)

Will it reduce the amount of PIP the mics get?

This will be my first outing with this set up.

The music will be very bass heavy.


Mics:CA11,CA14,AKG ck91(Homebrew active)
Pre/power: Ca Ugly, Oade mod sbm1,sp battery box,MT mic power
Recorder:R9HR,MT 24/96,Iriver ihp110(16gb cfmod)

Hi all, just joined the team with my recent purchase of a dr2d!

I have been running a simple 2 channel setup for a while now using a TASCAM dr07mkii, Church mics, and a regular battery box.

I also recently bought a new Naiant Tinybox, and will soon be buying some larger open taping mics to complete my rig.

For the dr2d, from reading the multiple pages and threads I seem to need to do the following:
1. update firmware
2. set mic in to about 67, and line in to 95. Are these the optimal settings for recorder gain?
3. adjust gain with the Tinybox not the dr2d? I am used to using my dr07mkii to adjust gain, so that will be a little different, as the Tinybox goes in increments, and can't be "finetuned" like it would be with the recorder.

When using the Church CA14s or any other external mic, should I be using mic in or line in? Does it matter for a single set of mics?

I am looking forward to recording with two sets of mics, and also doing 4 channel with SBD and ambient mic input.

Does anyone know what "power" (on/off) in the "input setting" menu means?

That addresses "plug in power" for your "mic in" jack.
