"Randy,     it's been a year since I wrote that, and I'm not sure now which cards were causing the static. I thought that I had either the URL or a .pdf list of approved SD cards, but I can't find it. I think…"

"Let me know how your DP_008 works powering two condensor mics. Mine is one I bought on ebay, but it has some problems, and the seller refunded my money and told me to toss it. The 1/4" inputs don't work, and a couple other things, but…"

"Eric,    I mentioned the phantom power issue, and, after much trial and error over the last few days, I think you are correct about the low end pre-amp being the problem. Long story short, I can run just the MXL 990 or the MXL 991, but NOT…"

"The 991 pencil mic is the loudest of the two, they both pic up like crazy with enough phantom power from the mixer. I was picking up the TV through a closed door about 50' away. I was really surprised. At first I thought the 990 wasn;t picking…"

"I bought the MXL 990/991 set of condensor mics from MF when it was on sale about 2 weeks ago for $79.95. Just got them set up, but haven't gotten to try them yet. The 990 is for vocals and the 991 for guitar mic. According to the info you point…"

"Yes to everything you said, the first thing I looked for was a tripod mount. The EQ doesn't really offer much, but the reverb is OK for vocals. I've read about using a different footswitch for punch-in/out. My wife was doing "spring…"

"Phil,    No, I'm not going to "trash" it. It can still be usable in some ways. The 1/4" inputs distort and sent the meters to MAX when you plug any cable into them. As I said I was able to use the XLRs and mic my amp…"

"The DP-008 I bought on ebay is a piece of crap. They seller refunded my money and said to trash it. The screen is dim, the 1/4" phono inputs don't work, pan doesn't work, gain on the XLR inputs is poor as it the gain on the…"

"I have a DP-004 and just bought a DP-008 so I could have the reverb and EQ, the XLR inputs as well as four more tracks available.  I've been experimenting with the DP-004 internal mics, trying to position the unit so that it picks up…"
