Best microphone for portable Digitakt setup


#22

Apologies, it’s the M3! I never used it with the DT when I had one, but I imagine you’d need extra gain because the DT doesn’t provide very much on the thru channel.


#23

Haven’t used Rode M3 either but I tried AKG C1000s MKIV, that is kind of similar but the signal was way too weak for Digi :no_mouth:


#24

any mic w/out an active mic preamp section will sound like garbage going into DT’s inputs.

though one man’s trash is an other’s treasure…


#25

Interested in the Zoom H6. Do you record audio from the DT in the H6 with a TRS cable? And doing multi track and overdubbing?


#26

I record dn+dt + virus ti2 in the zoom h6 yes, works just fine for me… I put the level between -6 -12 and if needed adjust/normalise in logic… After few months am still happy and surprised by the quality of this little recorder… I also record sounds here and there, very handy…


#27

Thanks for the reply! Do you multi track and overdub with the H6. I am interested in that.


#28

Yes you can do that as well, works just fine… I did it a few times… You won’t get lost, the manual is well made, zoom is very easy to manipulate, nothing negative to say, really


#29

Do you know what the difference is between the H5 and the H6? I know the H6 has more inputs and a color screen, but what is the difference in case of multi track and overdub?


#30

Never had the h5 in hand, sorry…


#31

H6 has six inputs against 4(?) on H5.


#32

I know, read the second sentence after my question…


#33

H6 can do 6 tracks simultaneously the h5 can do 4. H6 has more extensive editing features.


#34

Can you tell me what those ‘more extensive editing features’ are on the H6?
