Re: HD spin-up noise when recording on the Recorder 10
- Something you could try in the short term would be to drop the sound
quality at which you record.
The lower the sound quality, the less information it records. This
means the memory buffer will fill up more slowly which in turn will
give you more time between spin-ups. *IF* the Archos buffers after
compression, which for the sake of me writing this post, I will
This wouldn't make a *HUGE* difference, but if you're recording
speech, you substantially drop the encoding rate (ie quality), and it
still manages to sound surprisingly good. I have voice recordings at
64kbps which are quite OK (although obviously compressed).
