Has this unit been updated to prevent unauthorized Bluetooth access? I remember reading that anyone with the phone app and in Bluetooth range could load the app and control your unit. Is this still the case?

I ran line in with MK41>BabyNBox for Dylan with good results.
Any recollection (or screen shot) of the level setting for that? ... just for reference...
I started at 12 and ended up at 16. Could have definitely bumped up a few more but was being conservative for the first time out.

I don't think so, since you have to put the unit into a pairing mode. If it's not in pairing mode, you aren't connecting...

So I’m gonna roll the A10 for the first time, Maceo Parker 😈 4v>nbobs>babynbox>A10. What’s an educated guess for a safety level? I have the record app but still want some sort of benchmark from which to adjust. FOB/DFC/25’ in a 2-3k room.

Thanks!

How'd the show turn out? Can we hear the recording?
Advice is a form of nostalgia, dispensing it is a way of fishing the past from the disposal, wiping it off, painting over the ugly parts and recycling it for more than it’s worth.

Chrisedge, you are right, I was going to comment the same thing.


I have had an unusual microSD card read error on the A10 now a couple of times where it says the card needs formatting. Occasionally my desktop computer will freeze up/reset and if the A10 is connected and the card had not been unmounted, the unit will give me a "Format SD Card" screen for a few seconds. I have been able to get around the problem by just reconnecting the A10 to my mac and after the card mounts (computer doesnt have a problem reading it via a USB connection) then ejecting it as normal. Card works fine.

The type of card I am using is a Sandisk Ultra Plus 128 GB V10 MicroSDXC

Anyone else notice this?

Used my new A10 for the first time last night, and being able to check and adjust levels via the phone app was even more of a game changer than I expected. Recording came out great, transferring it now.

I was running AT853 cards (modded) into a Church UBB, and started Audio In gain at 12, later raised to 17 during a set break as I could see I had additional headroom. This was for a loud-but-not-super-loud show (just barely not requiring earplugs, though I had them at the ready).

Audio IN.

Is there a way to switch between MIC IN and Audio IN via the app, btw? I'm not seeing one.

open box $129 on ebay

new ones with warranty are still $163 tho. might be a better deal. +$30 is not bad deal for full warranty (i try to buy my consumer electronics with the CC that adds a year, but only on 'new' purchases)
