The mic input will most likely pick up a hum from the sound board. This function requires a line in jack, that offers a higher voltage range. The LS-10 and LS-11 offer line in jacks. Connecting the VN-8100PC to a sound board is not recommended.

Question

Does this make any sound before, after, or during the time it is recording?

I would like to use it in my class but I don't know if it makes a sound when recording. I do not want to bother the class by having a beeping sound or any other sound.
