Hey guys ,

I've been wanting to record some rehearsals / personal practices with my mini disc , but unfortunately it only has a line in socket , problem being (from what i've read) is that the line in input has a different frequency or something than a mic in input so when i plug my mic into it and record i get a VERY low recording volume .. i was just wondering is there anyway i can buy something to plug into my mic or my mini disc that would boost the signal ? .. bare in mind i travel around ALOT and it would have to be pretty damn portable ! .. so a mixing desk or something prolly isn't a viable option ! .. just looking for some quick and small to just plug in and go if possible

thanks in advance guys :thumb:

Thanks guys ,

is there anything possibly EVEN smaller ? .. i hate to be a picky bastard but i really need it to be like TINY ..

but if i can't find anything , something like that will do ! .. thanks again !

just a quick thought , I think i read a while ago something about a powered mic that would have maybe it's own boost or gain to it ? . .would this work ? or is this something different ? thanks guys :)

dude what do you got already, anything that you can sing into that has a headphones out? try that... that would probably provide the power you need in a pinch...

ok sorry man I was in a hurry when I posted this so now i have more time. if you wish to simply output the chords, and notes here is a plugin to try, I havent tried it yet, but it is linked from ms site, and listed as most popular plugin..

otherwise. I know way back I converted a wav to a mod and then the mod to the midi, however by a search I see now there are many programs that CLAIM they can do it, so seek and destroy and tell us which one worked :) the best search phrase for this is simply

wav2midi

I recommend copernic.... (not desktop search.. copernic AGENT http://www.copernic.com/
