Just wanted to say hello and thanks again for all of those that
through trading, in past years, allowed me to amass a huge amount of
(in most cases) great sounding incredible shows. See you on Dime.

Long time since I've posted, hope everyone doing well! Is there a way
to externally power the MicroTrack 24/96? The battery setup it has
looks to be a pain in the butt in festival situations. Other than
that, it looks to be a pretty nice unit.
Additionally, are there any recommendations f/ a similar setup. Things
I would like to see include:
- Reasonable pricing
- Digital & analog I/O
- Ability to power externally
- Level controls that are full control, not stepping
One last topic (keep in mind, I haven't used a 24 bit recorder and
certainly don't claim to have a full grasp of the technical aspects)...
If I were to record a show using the 24 bit setting @ 44.1, once I've
created a CD would it be playable on a standard CD player, or would I
have to record 16 bit to be able to play the resulting CD? How is this
typically handled, so a CD could be played in a standard CD player?
One last 24 bit clarification... I am assuming that I would not want to
use my SBM-1 if I were going to record 24 bit, correct. I assume that
using the SBM-1 would force the recorder into 16 bit mode. Along those
lines, if I decided to use 16 bit mode (and assuming that I was using
the MicroTrack), would the SBM-1 improve the sound quality, or just be
an extra piece of gear that I'm lugging f/ no reason?
Thanks in advance f/ any advise!
