But you are cool and macho. Really you are.


Also, what's the difference in the size that matters--capacity?

David Tebbutt

I think Neville gets 71 hours in his and I get an hour at most before the tape needs turning.

Needless to say, I rarely use it but I had it with me at LesBlogs just in case I interviewed someone who talked too fast or in a difficult (for me) accent.

Neville Hobson

I think I'd rather be cool than macho, David, not both!

You're right re 71 hours. That's what the manual says. With a gig of memory, the voice recording produces WAV files that I guess are a certain size (you can't change any recording settings), so if you talk continuously that would produce a sound file of about a gig that is 71 hours. For what that's worth.

Good question on what's the difference that matters. I suppose it is capacity, although maybe it's the digital aspect, ie, you can do things with and to the recording that you can't with a tape.

Hi everyone !
I have a Pearlcorder SD3 from -70:s.
It was a tech masterpiece that time and I think its a very nice machine in many ways.

I would like to give it for full service if anyone can recommend a company to do such things.
