Re: How to rip CDs with VLC

Hi there,
Have you tried updating to the latest VLC? This might solve your stability issues.
I have found that VLC wasn’t automatically updating itself as it usually would so a trip to the VLC download page may very well be in order.

Hi!
Yes you have to move around with the jaws Cursor or nvda review mode.
You can actually do very much with that dialog box.
You can for example do recordings from an internet stream or rip a dvd or a cd.
You can convert files from one format to another too.
I have not used that feature as vlc is very unstable on my mac right now.
I use another player called IIna specially made for the mac.

A couple of points here.
I don’t think the dialogue box is complicated and remember that this dialogue box provides functionality for a whole range of conversion possibilities and Ripping to CD’S is just one.
I get more out of the dialogue box when using the JAWS cursor etc.

Subject: [all-audio] How to rip CDs with VLC

I'm hoping someone can give me step-by-step instructions for how to rip a CD
with VLC media player. I've tried intuition and Google, but I'm getting
nowhere. I know to start with control-r and to select disc with alt-d. I
know that VLC recognizes the CD I have in that drive. However, I can't get
any results.

One time I accidentally recorded two tracks with VLC, but even though they
were somehow saved as .WAV files and VLC is my default .WAV app, there's no
sound. By contrast, when I just play the CD with VLC, the sound is fine.

Although I somehow got two.WAV files using VLC, a feat I've never repeated,
the only file type options I find as I go through the rip dialog are ones I
don't recognize.

I'll mention that I have Windows Media player set to rip CDs, but I close
that program when I want VLC to do the job. Could it be interfering anyway?

I'm not looking for another ripping program. WMP is okay, but the sound
quality of .WMA files is less than I want. Since VLC plays CDs with such
clarity, I'm hoping that using it for ripping will bring better results.

Thanks for any instructions or tips.

Retiring my Zoom H1

Dane Trethowan
 

Hi everyone,

I've had the great pleasure of using my Zoom H1 recorder for 9 years and
even though the machine is in absolutely perfect condition I've decided to
retire the machine and move on.

Actually I had 2 Zoom H1 recorders so that's how much I thought of the
machine and I still have a fondness for the H1.

To me the H1 truly stood out as an example of exactly what a Handy Recorder
should be with no complex menus and recording was as straight forward as it
possibly could have been, press a button and you're recording.

So time to move on and I'm thinking about the Zoom H1N or possibly the Zoom
H2N.

I know some list members have the H1N, what do they think of the machine.

I've looked at the H1N home page and there's no doubt that the H1N certainly
packs it in when it comes to nice handy and useful functionality.

Vlc on Ios problems loading network library.

Anders Holmberg
 

Hi!
I have a harddisk connected to My router and on that one i have a partition for a lot of radio programs i’ve recorded.
Now i want to play them via vlc on my Ipad mini 4.
So i open up vlc sidebar and double-tap on the local network and then on the network where the disk is connected.
I now have a list of servers and one of them is the harddisk as a smb server.
I tap on that one and now have to enter my Credencials for that harddisk.
I type my name and password but there’s also a port field and a workgroup field which i don’t care about as i don’t have any specific workgroup and i don’t know the port for smb.
Now i click connect and here are two partitions.
One which is a backup partition and is not of intrest here.
The other partition is the one i want so i click on that to and now vlc seems to be stuck in a loop.
I can only see an in progress message on the screen so i don’t know if it is trying to access the drive or is just stuck.
Any sollution for this one?

Re: IOS Voice Memos App

Dane Trethowan
 

Points taken.
Thankfully with the Zoom F8N you can connect a number of independent power supplies apart from the battery of the IOS device or the batteries of the recorder itself if it indeed is using any.
The power supply arrangement is quite complex and very flexible.
The Zoom F8N can be configured to run from any voltage between 9 and 18 volts so this means that the recorder can be run from a very wide range of power sources and battery packs.
Further to this the recorder can shutdown when the voltage falls below a certain level or switch to an alternate power source.
An example of this perhaps would be when the batteries themselves get low, the recorder can switch to a custom made battery backup.

Yeah either that or actually what I believe and no offence to anyone that does use the IPhone for real work, they may expect that musicians and whom ever else would use the IPad for true production and serious work. I don't think so with the battery thing because the H6 uses it's own. The choice for the IPad is called stereo mix IPad battery. Any of the H6's choices that end with battery mean that it'll use it's own batteries. I wish there were a way to put an external battry between the IPhone or IPad and the H6. You can power the H6 with those power bank things to recharge your IPhone.

You learn something every day.
The manual for the Zoom H6 talks about using the H6 with an iPad and doesn’t mention iPhone so I did wonder what the big deal was as surely both IOS devices could be used?
Perhaps Zoom suggest the iPad because of the bigger battery.

Have any of you tried the new Voice Memo App that has been rolling out with the later IOS updates?
I had a play with the App this morning and its very easy to use not to mention of very reasonable quality with the finished recording.
Voice Memos can sync in iCloud so you have all your memos available across your Mac and IOS devices.
The App can record in Lossless quality too and that’s been m complaint about some recording Apps for quite some time.
I have no indication yet as to whether Voice Memo can record in stereo or mono though even supposing Voice Memos could record in stereo I think most IOS devices only have mono microphones built in anyway.

Hi Dane and list.

Regarding my Zoom F8n, I managed to secure the assistance from the BBC Radio Scotland's, radio Operations Manager today by phone and I'm delighted that he is willing to set up my Zoom F8n for me.

This is fantastic because I don't know anyone up here in the wilderness of Scotland who could help me out.

So I'm meeting him a his work in 2 weeks time and although the setting up should be simple for him, I'm still very unsure of the device I've purchased.

I'm hoping to get my local bar maid to describe the recorder and it's buttons and also the Zoom bag that I also purchased and of course I've also got Youtube.

But I really got to ask Dane this silly question.

I've unboxed my Zoom and it looks as though it stands on it's left side vertically, however the rather large and clumsy Zoom F8n bag I purchased will only take the device laying on it's back.

So how would anyone see the display on the right edge if it's in a bag?

Dane, I'm sure will be having a good old laugh at me, as I've had the device for about 3 months now.

So please dane, be gentle with me, hahaha!

Very best wishes.

Andy.

Firstly the Zoom F8N stands on 4 rubber feet which are placed on the bottom of the recorder so you know where the bottom is by the feel of the rubber feet.
The top is easily identified by 4 slotted screws that hold the recorder into the rack mount.
There is a handle on each side of the recorder so when the recorder is standing on its rubber feet these each handle will be protruding from either side of the recorder.
The display of the recorder therefor is on the front left with the control panel taking up the rest of the area on the front panel.
On the left hand side you have tracks 1 through 4 as XLR/TRS inputs along with the 2 SD Card slots and the multi function USB port.
On the right hand side you have tracks 5 through 8 XLR/TRS inputs along with the external power supply socket mini XLR out sockets, a sub output socket and the headphones socket.
On the back from left to right there is the Zoom Capsule connector which has a cover over it, 2 sockets which are for Time syncing with a video camera and so on and the 9 volts DC power socket for the supplied AC adapter.
At the bottom on the recorder at the back in the centre is the screw to you losen to remove the battery compartment door so you will have to turn the recorder upside down to insert batteries.

Hi Dane and list.

Regarding my Zoom F8n, I managed to secure the assistance from the BBC Radio Scotland's, radio Operations Manager today by phone and I'm delighted that he is willing to set up my Zoom F8n for me.

This is fantastic because I don't know anyone up here in the wilderness of Scotland who could help me out.

So I'm meeting him a his work in 2 weeks time and although the setting up should be simple for him, I'm still very unsure of the device I've purchased.

I'm hoping to get my local bar maid to describe the recorder and it's buttons and also the Zoom bag that I also purchased and of course I've also got Youtube.

But I really got to ask Dane this silly question.

I've unboxed my Zoom and it looks as though it stands on it's left side vertically, however the rather large and clumsy Zoom F8n bag I purchased will only take the device laying on it's back.

So how would anyone see the display on the right edge if it's in a bag?

Dane, I'm sure will be having a good old laugh at me, as I've had the device for about 3 months now.

So please dane, be gentle with me, hahaha!

Very best wishes.

Andy.
