Not to be insulting here, but it sounds like you have the Mic setting
selected in the menus, despite the fact that you have an external mic
plugged in, and in this case, it will still use the internal mic, and you
will get the sound of the drive spinning up.

Hi guys.

I've got myself a very cool set of in ear binorrel microphones and a pre-amp
because the signal from the line in port on the archos needs to be boosted
for good audio levels.

However, just like when using the built in mic my recordings are picking up
the noise from the unit as it buffers? During the recording process. Is
there a way of stopping this using rockbox as it currently is, or at least
minimising this?

A good friend has the Recorder version 1 and I've heard some of his
recordings using the same mic's and pre-amp as me and have never heard this
buffering? feedback.

I haven't spoken to him yet as he's currently not online to see if he had to
do something to stop this.

Has anyone any theories on this behaviour?

I originally had a recorder v1 but the retailer sent me a dodgy charger
which fired my unit with 14volts instead of 9, (I'm in the UK), and it fryed
the units circuit board. So they shipped me this unit. Which I must say is
much more attractive looking not to mention feels slightly lighter in

Now it could be that the recorder fm because the headphone out and line ins
are so close together this is why my recordings are picking up on the
buffering? But I'm grasping at straws there.

Any help/suggestions on this would be very warmly recieved.

The pillars of any good relationship I believe are, Honesty, Trust, and
