Hi there - I recently had an odd experience with an R-07 that I can't get my head around, and I'm hoping this might ring a bell with someone else in this thread.

I purchased this unit a little while back from another TS-er, who even included a mini-SD card with the last show they had recorded on it. Using some spare room on that same card (a Samsung something or other... sorry, not at home right now), I ran a few field tests at home, using a pair of CA mics (I forget which model, had 'em for years), and determined that everything was working fine. Shortly after that, I purchased a set of AT-853 mics w/4.7 mod, from another TS-er, and ran a couple similar test - again, no problem.

I recently recorded a show where I decided go go semi-stealth, mostly for convenience, using the CA mics, since I never got around to getting clips for the AT-853s. The result was a stellar recording. The other night, I recorded an acoustic set in a little cafe, and ran open, using the AT 853s on a short stand, and a different mini-SD card (SanDisk Class 10 32GB). the result was something that resembles a cassette recording riddled with dropouts - not intermittent, but very evenly spaced throughout the recording.

I can't imagine that the SanDisk card is the cause of the issue, but would that cause something like what I've described? In all my years of recording, this is a new one on me. Any ideas? Thanks for any insights, J.

Did you format the Sandisk card in the recorder before using?

Sounds like a bad card to me. It's probably the easiest part to check. Use another card and see what happens. That's appears to be the only variable in your story.

Hey there, folks - news flash.... got home this evening and took a few minutes to reassess the situation; not a bad cable, not a bad card, and yes I did format the card for the R-07.... turns out the headphones I was listening to the recording with were the culprit. I was on a train trip and decided to listen back using my little Bose in-ear headphones, which I use for my iPhone and also for my Fiio player - apparently they are not all that compatible with the R-07, though! This evening, I had some time to load the file onto my desktop computer, and listened back on the R-07 as well (with a different pair of headphones), and everything is there after all. So... false alarm, apparently, and I couldn't be happier about that! It was an acoustic / non-amplified performance from a visiting Tuvan throat singer, in a small cafe for an audience of maybe less than a dozen people, like a very intimate living room show, perhaps. I was probably two feet in front of him, and it was truly amazing, if not somewhat magical. I'm really happy that the recording was not ruined, and once the performer has had a chance to vet it, we can decide if it's good enough to use for an official release, or simply share it through online channels. Thanks to those of you who tried to help, but apparently I should have waited til I got back home to assess the situation. Live and learn, I reckon....!

Yeah, neither did I! Even though I have never run into any issue using those headphones for other audio devices; I originally purchased them to use with my iPhone, as they also have a built-in mic; and now I'm thinking that part of their design made them incompatible with the circuitry in the R-07. I never really paid attention to the tip before, but it appears to be a 4-pole tip, which I haven't dealt with since my brief run with using a Sharp minidisc recorder some years back. There just seems to be something about the R-07 that doesn't want to get along with them, though, so now I know! If this link works, here's a picture that shows what the tip looks like:

B&H says “This item is discontinued” for the black version. Wonder if that is true? It only had 2 years on the market, and with the latest firmware it was quite capable.
85$ is definitely an amazing price, only concern would be app support for future smartphone OS’s.

Guitar Center cancelled my order within 12 hours of my placing it after I saw the $85 price in the post here, and the rep I subsequently spoke with said that the model was no longer even listed in Guitar Center's inventory.  I then grabbed one for $15 more at Amazon.  Due to arrive on Thursday.  Interestingly, Amazon's price has since gone up to $139 and the model is listed as being "out of stock."
