So once again I've lost a weekend's work to a File Access Error. In case you don't know what I mean, this is when your recorder (in my case a Zoom R16) suddenly gives you a File Access Error message in the middle of recording or playback. As far as I can ascertain, this basically means you're screwed. You've lost your work. When this first happened to me a few years ago I realised that it only ever happened when I recorded the piano sound on my keyboard - guitars and everything else were fine. So I stopped DI-ing the kbd, plugged it in an amp and mic'd it up. No problems for several years. Then it started happening even through the amp. I figured it was because I was recording a song with multiple piano tracks and the studio didn't like something in the frequencies, even when it wasn't DI'd. So I bought a nice new Roland Go Keys to replace my pretty crappy, noisy Yamaha. But it happened again. So I reduced the number of piano tracks and managed to redo the song. So this weekend I worked on a song with multiple keyboard string parts. No piano. But bam! File Access Error. So I thought, screw this, I'll just upgrade my studio to a nice new Tascam. Nope. A quick google revealed that File Access Errors happen with them too. So I'm wondering if this type of error is just a digital recording hazard. And before you ask - yes, I want to keep using hardware rather than software. So . . . has anyone found either a) a way to fix or avoid these errors or b) a digital home studio that isn't prone to these errors?
