Stephen, I don't mean to be passing the buck here, but it really depends
on what they want to do with it.  I am not familiar with that particular
mixer, but if someone wants to use it as a simple mike pre-amp into
which they can plug a mike or two and then connect the mixer to their
recording device, I could give better advice if I knew the mikes and the
recorder they were using.  Basically, one plugs in the mikes, sets the
levels on the mixer so the speech or music does not distort the recorder
and Go.  It is a bit more tricky than this in that mixers often have
more than one set of input volumes that control the microphones.  There
is the master volume, the actual mike volume, and on some mixers, there
is something called the trim.  Often the manual of the mixer will
describe how to set each of these relative to each other in order to get
the best results.  Now, if you want to use the mixer to do more
complicated things like routing the inputs to other audio busses, cue up
the sounds before you punch in the mike, that is another matter and I
would have to know more about what was needed.  I don't think this has
helped much, but perhaps others on the list who have this particular
mixer can shed some light on the subject.

Beth, you can cut the bottom end of the frequency spectrum but you can't
raise the treble.  The only way you could do karaoke is to buy the 4
track version.  What's nice about this recorder, at least for sound
purists, is that it is dedicated to giving you the best quality
recording you can possibly get.  It does have a lot of neat features,
but the developer assumes that you have a way in your studio to do a lot
of other things like changing the treble, mixing others sounds into the
recording etc.  The battery, by the way, is quite easy to change.

Hey, Neal, enjoyed your cast on that recorder.  Can you alter bass and
treble as you can on the Edirol R1 and how about center cutting for
karyoke and can these functions be done without sighted help?  Is the
battery any easier to extract on the SD than on the Edirol?  Beth
