Hi P.,

I'll try to be as clear as possible ...

So to help some friends here I record them in live concert, there a lot
of music instruments and voice, all are connected on a master table and
I record from the output master table.

we can draw this like that :

guitare -----------
singuer -----------   ---
                   ---   ---
battery -----------   ---   ---
                   ---   ---   --- Mix Master Table --- record solution
micro 1 -----------   ---   ---
                   ---   ---
micro 2 -----------   ---
...     -----------

If I use a laptop with audacity, their is an horrible noise

If I use a Mini Disk MD recorder the sound is good

If I use a Special External Music hard drive the sound is good

At this time I use the MD to record first and after I record a second
time from the MD to the laptop with audacity. and the sound is good (but
not as best as I think it's really possible) to make audio CD.

That's why I think of the compression quality ... or something in the

But for sure I am just a little user, not a Master of Code or something
