so if i only have 20 faders does this mean i can only mix 20 channels at a time
Asked by: tuli
Channels 9-32 are grouped in stereo pairs, so just one fader per pair. You can also set fader groups, so if you're doing a live mix you can have, say, the drum kit mics in a group and then control overall volume with a single fader.

question

Can you adjust the pitch while recording? I want to record a melody on one track, raise its pitch to record a harmony that is too low for me on another track, then lower the pitch on both tracks to the original key.
Asked by: David
You can't pitch shift on the device itself. However, you could export the tracks to a computer, open the files up in audacity or some DAW and pitch shift it there. You could then import the tracks back in and continue tracking/mixing. That's the only way I can think of that might work while still mostly using the Portastudio.

once an sd card is formatted, can I record on it, remove it, put it back in at a later date, and pick up where I left off on the project on that sd card?
Asked by: Anonymous
I have never done this as yet but I dont see why this would be a problem. Just make sure you access the proper song from the menu when you need it

question

does it support 15 pin VGA external monitor?
Asked by: Anonymous
No, it does not, alas. It does, however, have a nice high-resolution full color (albeit small) screen on the tape deck itself. Also, while it *does* have a USB port, there's no USB cable for it in the box (it doesn't use a standard USB Micro B cable, but instead the older USB Mini B connection), and USB is only used to transfer files to and from a computer.
