Digital Recorders
 
After having failed to get either a FirePod or a MOTU 896HD to work reliably for multi-track (8 mic inputs) event recording (for use with video), I am now looking into hard disk mixer/recorders, such as the KORG D888 or D3200. I do have some questions for anyone who may have used these or similar devices. DV uses 48k audio, so if I record 44.1 will it stay in sync with the video if I pull it into my video editor (Vegas)? I want to use the recorded audio instead of the audio from the camera. What happens if the file gets larger than the wav file size limit of 2GB? Will it quit recording or will it just create another file? The D888 only records in 44.1 while the D3200 will go to 48k.

Regards,
Jerry

I had the D12, and since it's been awhile, I won't swear to anything. I seem to remember it would record for a few hours, no problem. Then I would capture the playback. My biggest issue, was having to rely on an outlet. I was rcording 3 bands at a concert, and the breaker kept flipping, causing all unsaved audio to be lost. Get a battery backup for it.

Vegas will convert the sample rate from 44.1 to the project sample rate for DV of 48. If possible, however, you should try to record at 48 or even 96 if your recorder gives you the option. While most NLEs are pretty good at converting these days, sample rate conversions that are exact even integer up or down conversions are less likely to introduce noise or distortion than odd integer or fractional ones.
