    I have a sq5 in 1.5.1 and WD My Passport
    I have to record a jazz band. It’s an important job and I can’t go wrong
    I was wondering: if through routing I made the same signal go on all 16 channels and tried to record for a long time maybe using gate compressors etc etc, could it be a valid test to verify the absence of problems? I could do some tests and then listen to the results. What do you think?

    Testing is good but then the HD might need cleaning and defragging and checked for bad sectors again before real usage is attempted with the band.

    On occasion I have had two different systems recording the same event to be sure (more sure:) that one of them was good.

    every modern OS is automatically checking for bad sectors with SMART
    connect the disk to a computer for a while will do the check

    make a backup recording to a stereo recorder
    just in case…
