Re: Suggestion for portable recording device (reply)
The IM2W is under $11 but wouldn't be my first choice for your application. These types are normally better at distance. If you have a good sounding room, however, it might be ideal....

If you can spend a few hundred bucks, maybe three hundred, the Apogee MiC and a lightening connector is fabulous for iPhones and iPads.

That DP 03 you have is a great device. Like you, I found it difficult to use at first look. But after about 45 minutes of determined effort, it became a lot easier to use. And the recording quality is pretty good. I encourage you to...

iPhone 4/4s use the 30 pin connector. As claran33 suggests, bargains are to be found since the iPhone 5 and later use a different connector – everyone has discontinued the 30pin versions but Amazon and other retailers still have plenty...

I recently bought the Tascam iM2 mic for less than 20 bucks as it has been replaced by something a bit different. I plugs into the iPhones with the larger slot, not the Lightning connector of the Iphone 5 and 6. Sound quality is very...

Thanks for the mic suggestion; I have an iphone.  Any suggestions on a decent one cheap? The Tascam DR-05 was suggested but maybe the iphone makes more sense.  Thanks...

Re: Mixer into PA (reply)
I'll just add to Kev's very good comments that there is one way in which use of the SA220 as a powered speaker is cost effective. If you're a performer who often plays solo, but who also at times plays small gigs with a few other...

Uh... With a good pop-on mic, an Android or iPhone will do exactly what you want. An iPhone is easier if you have one. The way to make CDs is to get the audio file into your computer and burn from there. Other than that, Zoom dominates...

Suggestion for portable recording device (topic)
I have a DP-03 Portastudio; I find it very user unfriendly and (admitting that I'm old and not very tech inclined) and I think the manual is extremely confusing. Since I don't use it very much I sort of have to relearn everything I...

Re: advice on very small amps (reply)
Small amps for Jams work great...usually in a smaller room and less of a chance of overpowering others in the group. I use a the Roland Micro Cube for electric guitars at blues jams and acoustics at Bluegrass jams. In the event the BG...

Re: Mixer into PA (reply)
As explained in that thread I linked to, there are differences between using a mini-mixer as a sub-mixer feeding a main mixer and using one as an input expander for an acoustic combo (which is what the SoloAmp essentially is). Here are...

Re: Mixer into PA (reply)
The best way to run a small mixer into the SA220 is to run it into either the Aux input in the back of the Fishman or the "Monitor" input. This way, you're simply using the SA220 as a powered speaker of a kind, bypassing the preamp, EQ...

Re: Mixer into PA (reply)
Todd, the SoloAmp is not a conventional mixer and there are other issues with connecting a mini-mixer to expand the number of its inputs. I think there have been previous threads on the topic but the only one I can find is this...

Re: Which preamp/DI (reply)
You're welcome, Graeme. You've got one helluva front end there and can confidently expect outstanding results.One other thing: the Headway cannot be powered from a mixer's phantom supply because its current demand is too high. It can...

Re: 600 ohm input into a DAC (reply)
Well, Mike, you could get it out, dust it off and, if you're not very careful, electrocute yourself! When I worked for the local council, we had to clear out an old cinema and found this humongous old Western Electric power amp (sporting...

Re: Which preamp/DI (reply)
I got the channels the other way round and have edited my previous reply accordingly, but actually you can use either channel with one pickup source. For dual-source systems (pickup + mic or two different pickups), plug the JJB into Ch.1...
