Emne: [all-audio] I have bought the Røde procaster mic.

Hi!
I’ve ordered a mic from Røde called Røde procaster.
From what i have read it seems to be a very good mic for Podcasting and such.
I haven’t got it into my house yet as i have to go and get it from the postal service.
I will report back and maybe do a little demo of the mic.

Zoom F8n Recorder and Zoom F Control App

Dane Trethowan <grtdane@...>
 

Wonderful stuff.

Here's a Youtube clip showing how the F8 Controller App can be used with the
Zoom F8n.

The Zoom F8N is an excellent audio recorder that has been discussed on this
list for quite some time and hello to my fello user of the F8N and my
sympathy to those who can only dream about owning one of these fantastic
units at this time, don't worry chaps you'll get there eventually as I've
done.

Anyway back to the point of the controller App.

I'm making an assumption that the App will be at the very least parcially
accessible as most IOS Apps are these days so assuming I'm right? Well the
App at the very least will give us easy access to some of the menu system
which can be access through the front control panel of the recorder but you
do have to remember the menu layout.

Anyway we'll see as I have to yet install the Bluetooth add-on.

I think those two tones mean that a new file is being created, some audio file formats do have a limit in size.

Hi,
Recently I was making a recording with the Olympus ls-p4 and at about the hour and 20 minute mark the unit emitted two tones of varying pitches. My first thought was this was a low battery warning but the unit was still operational when I stopped the recording. and when I powered it off and back on it reported battery level middle which may or may not be accurate. I was just wondering if anyone had ever encountered these tones during recording and why they’d occur if battery wasn’t truly nearly dead?
It could be my perception but this unit seems to eat through battery life way faster than the Olympus ls-14.

Thanks in advance.

A bigger TV doesn't always mean that the sound will be better! The TV's are flat, and the enclosures are cramped and small.

A good sound bar with a sub woofer would be a nice addition for your set. It would help if you were able to turn off the internal speakers on the TV. If possible, use a toslink or SPDIF cable to hook up the sound bar. sometimes just hooking up a good set of computer or amplified speakers to the TV will go a long way to better sound.

If you do get a bigger TV, wall mounting can help with the acoustics of the set, but again the cabinet has to be thicker on the TV too.

In many cases multi room speakers system are back to where it all started - feeding both stereo channels into one speaker - so in order to get stereo you need “A Pair”.
There are multi room speakers that come as a stereo speaker such as the Denon Heos 7 and Heos 5 speakers.
The Denon Heos 3 and Heos 1 are speakers speakers which you can pair together and that actually has advantages.
You might just want to use one Denon Heos 3 speaker as a centre speaker for example.
Getting back to the Google Home Max speaker I mentioned earlier.
I’m considering getting another to make a pair.
When the Mac lays horizontally its a stereo speaker though separation isn’t all that good.
When the Max stands vertically it is a mono speaker and can be part of a pair if there are 2 Max speakers.
You can do similar things with amazon echo speakers.

Re: Another tv, OR add speakers or sound bar?

Smiling?
 

It seems anymore these days the primary connection of devices is via HDMI, but it is not isolated to HDMI. Just like most things, it entirely depends upon the amount of money one throws at whatever situation. $100 is what I would honestly expect to pay for a decent SoundBar, but try and keep in mind, this is entirely subjective as are most things.

Hi all,

I'm wondering about the speakers that folks are talking about these
days: the blue tooth and the smart, etc. Are they one speaker or a box with two or more speakers in it? We went for more than 50 years needing a pair of speakers for stereo. Have we now gone back to listening to one speaker as if we have one ear? I would hate to think that all these multi-channel systems send their output to only one speaker.. I don't think my amazon echo dot plays stereo so when I use it for music, I hook it up to my stereo system.
