When using the built-in stereo microphone, physical vibrations caused by very low-frequency sounds can be recorded as distortion. When setting up the Q3, you should avoid locations that may be subject to vibrations from loudspeakers, a drum set or similar. Placing the unit on a soft cloth may also help to reduce vibrations.
Yes. When the 2GB file size is reached during recording, the Q3 stores the file and then opens a new file for further recording. Recording will not be interrupted during this process. By joining the resulting files using waveform editing software on a computer, a seamless long-term recording can be created.
* Normally, the maximum size for a WAV file is set to 2GB. Files larger than 2GB may not be recognized correctly by media player software or other audio software on a computer.
Yes. The video/audio mode switch allows using the Q3 as linear PCM recorder for sound only. By selecting 24 bit/96 kHz WAV file recording, high sound quality far superior to CDs can be obtained. MP3 recording which is useful for web-based distribution is also possible.
Depending on the media player or DAW software version, WAV files with high resolution and high sampling rates such as 24-bit/96 kHz may not play properly. Check which formats are supported by the software that you are using.
