Supplied SmartMedia with the PS-04 is 32MB, so total recording time is 16 minutes for all tracks (in Hi-Fi mode). It means that FULL will be displayed when you record 4 minutes for each tracks. If you use 128 MB SmartMedia, then recordable time is increased to 4 times more. Even if cost of SmartMedia is expensive, you can keep low running cost as follows;
1. Record completed data to DAT or Mini Disk. 2. Save data to computer by using card manager.
When the insert effect algorithm is "GUITAR/BASS", the built in mic cannot be used. (Except when the effect type "CABI" is selected in the PRE AMP/DRIVE module or when it is turned off) Please select another effect algorithm or bypass the insert effect.
(1) Effect algorithm is monaural input type. GUITAR or MIC effect algorithm cannot be used for stereo source. Please use another effect algorithm or bypass insert effect.
(2) The panning position is incorrect. To record stereo track correctly, set PAN parameter for Left channel to L100, and PAN parameter for Right channel to R100. Or please set the STEREO LINK function to ON.
"Card Manager" converts V-take data before signal processing by Send / Return effect and Track EQ. Please record audio data including Send / Return effect and Track EQ to any V-take, using "Bounce" function and convert it into WAV/AIFF file.
Please purchase SmartMedia reader/writer to import/export the data by SmartMedia. You can purchase it at the store which is selling computers or digital cameras. And please note that you need to download free software "Card Manager" from our website, which allows you to convert original compressed data format into WAV/AIFF format.
Yes, it's possible. When you make audio CD, the sampling frequency of WAV/AIFF data must be 44.1kHz. Using "PS-04 Card Manager (File Manager)", you can convert audio data into stereo WAV/AIFF file in 44.1kHz sampling.

The built-in mics may pick up physical vibrations such as very low frequencies as distortion. When setting up the PS-04, avoid locations that will be subject to strong vibrations such as near speakers or a drum set. It may also be advisable to place the unit on a soft cloth or similar, to reduce the influence of vibrations.
