Thanks for capturing this.
The only differences I can see between the F8 and F8N are the way the AA batteries are installed and the voltage of the connector.
With the F8n the input voltage can be up to 18 volts.
As far as the batteries go the F8N takes the same amount of AA batteries - 8 but they directly fit into the recorder rather than slide in and out on a tray.

Hi Dane.

Have a listen to this link. It's all about the Zoom F8 and alternative power sources.

I don't think that there will be any difference between the F8 and F8N.

Yes I too am looking around at external Powerbanks for the Zoom F8n and
there’s no doubt that they are battery hungry or can be might be the better
way of putting it.
If the Zoom F8N is working at full throttle - that is to say you’re using
192KHZ 24-bit recording on 2 SD cards - then you’re only going to get around
4 hours out of a set of Alkaline batteries, even less for Rechargeable I
would imagine though I’ve no idea how long with the Lythium batteries I
purchased.
Back to the Powerbank, you can use any voltage between 9 and 18 volts and
have the recorder switch power supplies if if the voltage of one power
supply hits a certain threshold.
You might for example have the recorder switch to internal batteries if the
Powerbank you’re using slips below 12 volts, at least then you have some
backup and can stop recording proceedings at the earliest opportunity.
I don’t know what sort of warning one gets when the power supply switches or
the voltage becomes low.
Surely the display would show something but that’s pretty much useless to
us.
I know one can enable a low battery tone in the settings -I think its
enabled by default - so perhaps you may hear that.
Yes it is a shame that we two seem to be the only happy users of the Zoom
F8n in the blind community perhaps. Bare in mind that I had to save for 6
months to get my kit and you probably dreamed about owning a Zoom F8n for
just as long as I did <smile> so with that in mind both of us have done
extremely well and even more so considering we both are familiar with the
wonderful Zoom H6 recorder.
Let me know how you get on with your search for your external power supply
though I think you’ll probably find what I have.
I found the power banks as I stated above so what needs to be done now is to
find the connections required and do some assembly.
Thankfully the manual of the Zoom F8n shows you what connections need to go
to what.
Again hardly helpful if you can’t see the diagram.
All the same though at the very least we have something to give our sighted
friends to lend us a hand.
I didn’t buy a sound bag and I talk about this in a subsequent eMail.

As yet I still only have my Zoom H6 clip-on's - the XY and the right angle

I'm still trying to get the help I need to use my BSM Binaural

Shortly, I'll be looking for a couple of Sure 57 microphones, stands and

You were talking about batteries. I've decided not to use batteries as
these would be too expensive.

I'm going to get an external power supply with the Herosi , Erosie,
Parding the spelling, to run my machine for over ten hours. These are not
too expensive and will save you spending all that money on batteries.

You did not say yet if you also purchased a sound bag. If you did, which

I also bought some Lythium batteries fro the recorder a couple of weeks

Lythium batteries have a long shelf life and are much lighter than

To be clear here I’m talking about Lythium batteries and not Lythium-iron
batteries.
The Lythium cells I bought come in the AA size at 1.5 volts each cell.

Re: Podcast Manager for Windows

Dean Martineau <topdot@...>
 

An option which I haven't tried but which should work is Replay Radio version 9 from Applian Technologies. It is free for use as a podcatcher, and pretty accessible. Version 11 is much less accessible, but when last I looked, version 9 is still available. Also, if you own tapin Radio, it can serve as a podcatcher, but it isn't free any longer.

Equivalent function in GoldWave as with MP3Gain?

Gerardo Corripio
 

Using MP3Gain for years to help raise the volume on certain MP3 files and folders, but I don’t know if it’s because of windows10 that when using the before-mentioned program, when a file is being worked on, a message pops on about where to save the log file to, which never happened before on Windows7 and below! I’m using a portable version of MP3Gain if it helps any; yu know how on the page, there’s a portable and instalable version; I was never able to install the version onto my Windows10 64Byte, thus decided to stick with the portable one. I was gifted in its time, a GoldWave license, thus I’d like to take full advantage of all waht GoldWave can offer, in which you can work as with MP3Gain, to raise and lower the volume of files, but I’ve not been able to figure out exactly what function within GoldWave’s Volume does the same task as with MP3Gain! What I only want is for the volume to be raised throughout the file, but what it seems to do (be the Automatic Gain and other related funcionts) to raise the volume to certain sounds or areas of the files being workd on! thanks for any tips.

Re: playlist maker

Barry Chapman
 

Hi Tim,

It depends on what you mean by a certain order. In Winamp, you can load an
entire folder of songs and create a playlist within the playlist editor
which you can output to a .m3u file. You can also move files up and down
within the editor. If you are wanting to use attributes within the ID3 tag
such as genre, I don't think you can do that within Winamp.

Alternatively, you can use the dir command line function in Windows to
create a list of files which you can save to a .m3u file.

Barry Chapman

Splitting large audio files using Total Recorder.

Donald L. Roberts
 

I posted this about ten days ago but got no response. So I hope that I will get some ideas from this repost.

I have the current version of Total Recorder, the professional version. I wish to split large mp3 files and am having difficulty figuring out just what comes first. Yes, I have read the help files. And If I understand what I read, I should first set the split criteria such as by size, by the length of pause, etc. I think I am on the right track because I was able to create a Queue file, but just what do I do to actually initiate the splitting of the large file?


Thanks.

Re: URL for Zoom please

Hmm.. I don’t know whether mine is a sound bag, I looked on eBay and found a Carry Case from the Zoom F8N.
The case is a little difficult to describe but I’ll do my best.
At one end is a transparent piece which you lift off to insert the recorder on one side whilst on the other you can insert say the AC mains adapter etc.
On the sides of the case are expandable pockets for extras such as microphones, leads etc.
All of this is held together with velcro clasps which can be moved and rearranged depending on the contents in the case.
At the other end is a zippered panel that gives you access to everything.

Okay well at that rate you’d be better off using Auto Replay gain which just about every audio Media Player supports.

A friend read something for me on their Mac, and the files are Quicktime M4A format. I tried opening them in Sound Forge 12 to normalize them a bit, but was told by Sound Forge that I'm missing Quicktime version 7. A url was shown on the open error dialog which would take me to the download page where I could get Quicktime,but when I went there, the page said that Quicktime plugingsupport has been available in Windows since 2009. I'm not interested in plugin support, so should I download version 7 of Quicktime and install it anyway so I can open these files in SF 12? Or should I just punt the M4A files by normalizing and saving them in another format (like MP3) in Reaper?

Hi,
A side question if I may.
What’s the reason you wish to normalise these files. Are you going to be using them in some sort of project or are you just normalising them for your own listening?
