The great thing about the menu systems for the H6 and F8n recorders is that the menu structure doesn’t wrap so notes can be taken on the menu options and because the menu system doesn’t wrap you will always know where you are.

Hello All,

I wondered if anyone was using a good portable digital recorder? I like the idea of the Zoom H5 or 6 but I see that it is necessary to navigate menus. So I guess it’s not an option for me.

I require an XLR and phantom power for my mic. What are the experiences of others?

Hi,
I say this as a Zoom Recorder user which I am. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, too much emphasis is put on menu navigation when it comes to the Zoom recorders in my opinion.
Yes its true, various settings have to be made but as a rule once these settings are made then there is usually no need to want to change them.
Using fantom microphones as far as I know with the Zoom H6 is no problem, I do not own such microphones however I do know that the Zoom H6 supports such microphone types so all that would be necessary would be to set the recorder to power the microphones at the required voltage? Well as I said I’ve never used these microphones so if I’m missing something then someone can point me in the right direction I’m sure <smile>.
Once the Phantom microphone setting is made then its just a matter of connecting the microphones, switching the Zoom H6 on, arming the tracks, setting the levels, pressing the record button and on with the show.

Depends on which peace you get. But yes Gena it's true you could get something to hook to the phone. Just know though it's something else dangling off the phone. I really liked the IRig Pro Duo. But they do make an Audio interface with 1 XLR I just forget what it's called. Point being that yes the phone in of itself ain't pro. But with pro gear you can make it pro. I've used my H6 with my Iphone and made a short video clip using my 8022 phantum powered. It sounded as pro as the H6 itself. So now people are bringing up the phone are you going to be walking arround with this set up? Because again it's just more cables in the way and more stuff dangleing. I don't mind cause I'm a geek that way. I want movie audio quality audio. So it's 1 of those if I must than I must things to me. I don't know about you though. Ah there's also the fact of off loading stuff to something else. Do you use drop box or something? But yes there are ways to make the phone sound pro. Where are you Gena? I f here in the good old US of A why not give sweet water sound a call. Check out www.sweetwater.com. They can help.

The Plextalk manual suggests that I visit Shoutcast and download individual .pls files. Can't find what I want on this site. Are there any other sites from which I can get these files?

Re: Portable digital recorders

For the times I've changed stuff yes. Every thing is held. The only trouble is the phantum. Again   it's just that it's best to shut it off if you aren't using it. With the Zooms not talking it's hard to do. Again are you good at remembering menus? I'm not so don't go buy my experience.

Re: Portable digital recorders

Hamit Campos
 

Ah yes Gena. Another thing I was gonna say you forgot 1. If it's just 1 condencer you may just need a Zoom H4N Pro. Again I know it's annoying to need eyes for the screen. I remind Zoom every chance I get. Also you must remember if you do pause recording that you did that because it won't beep at you. So my best suggestion since you I think said are using a condencer and need phantum is to get even on Amazon an LS-100 of Olympus. Shame on them for discontinuing it. But this will be easyer. It talks like most Olympus recorders but for the time and date settings so get someone to set that once and forget it. The phantum like on Tascam recorders and Marantz ones is on switches. So you can shut it off or activate it on the fly unlike the zooms. The vultage you can set in the menus. I would have gotten it but for 1 it's discontinued and 2 I want to actually record in surround sound. The H6 can do just that. This is because you can hook up 6 mics to it. Yes mics 5 and 6 need externl power because the EX H6 peace doesn't spit phantum but oh wells like my nephew Jonathan says.

Portable digital recorders

Georgina Joyce
 

Hello All,

I wondered if anyone was using a good portable digital recorder? I like the idea of the Zoom H5 or 6 but I see that it is necessary to navigate menus. So I guess it’s not an option for me.

I require an XLR and phantom power for my mic. What are the experiences of others?

Thanks,

Gena

Understanding the Behringer Q802USB via a Mac

Georgina Joyce
 

Hello All,

I have joined this list because I am struggling to get some new equipment working and could do with some help.

I have, Behringer Q802USB. An Audio-Technica ATR-2100. I want to take the audio from a Windows PC via the mixer and record from the mic and PC on my Mac. However, I can select USB Audio Codec as my input source on OS-X but the level controls are greyed out in Amadeus Pro. I only have headphones for monitoring the mixer's activity. I see from several youtube videos that this mixer cannot use the USB connection as both input and output. I have understood the USB Phones button needs to be pressed but any combination does not provide the Mac with the mixer input.

Once I get that situation sorted out I need to understand how to set up the stage. i.e. I don't understand how to use the level controls with the monitor and master controls as there is no switch to turn a channel in or out of the master.

Does anyone have the 802 USB or similar and can they nudge me into the right direction?

Thanks,

Gena

You’re a brave man to say that Brian <smile>.
I’m not at all disputing what you say but I will add that Amazon can’t be too far behind.
Actually where amazon seems to excel is with their microphone arrangements on their devices, I’ve already written about how good hands free quality was with Alexa and Skype.

HI,
But right now Google Assistant is the king, when it comes to understanding human voices.

Apple are going to have to get their act together as Voice Assistans are incredibly powerful these days.
With Alexa you can create routines and I imagine the same can be done with Google.
Samsung’s Bixby is even more powerful than that allowing a full scripting nearly.

Hello,

I think the improvement of Siri’s voice is my favourite. Pity she is a dum ass.

Apple Music App will handle all your music. Apple Podcasts your podcasts etc and Apple TV for the rest, sound familiar? It certainly does so if you’re using an IOS device.

Such a frustrating experience trying to get myself a Talking Smart TV here in Mexico!

Gerardo Corripio
 

It’s such a frustrating experience here in Mexico,to get myself an accessible Smart TV! The store folks just don’t understand what I’m looking for! They want to sell me TVs with Google Assistants, or they say that I’d need to buy another control that’d allow me to use the voice feature? I was wondering if any of you guys with accessible Smart TVs have uploaded a Youtube video explaining and demoing the TV, form how to set it up, and what it should do to make it accessible? I’m on the ookout for an LG model if this helps some. If I had some sort of a Youtube video, I could show the store people, to first make it talk in the store, just to be sure that I’ll get no surprises upon my arriving home with the new TV! Here in Mexico there’s no thing as refunds; if you buy something, you’re out of luck! The way I’m explaning to the store people is by showing them my iPHone in that while I swipe my finger, the icons are read; on the TV as you move with the remote, a voice tells you what icons you’re passing, allowing you to interact. Thanks for any more tips you guys might have, or as mentioned before, if any of yu guys have recorded a podcast, or Youtube video showing your LG accesible Smart TV I could use in this endeavor? I’m hoping I’ll be able to find one here in Mexico that talks! If not...

Yeah how about getting your music you buy on to a PC? Or a Mac for that matter? Like putting it into your own music folder to play with something else other than ITunes? I use WMP.

Hi,
I'm curious where they'll put the management of syncing ringtones especially on the Windows side not that that's worked for me for an age now anyway mind you but still I am curious.
I've an open ticket with Apple as we speak regarding the inability to successfully sync ringtones. First they tried to say it was because my ringtones weren't purchased from their store. When I proved to them that the affliction impacted purchased ringtones too I got an escalated ticket for whatever it is or isn't worth. It will be interesting going forward.

The only thing I got out of the event as far as Windows is concerned is that the Operating System hasn’t been forgotten.
My guess would be that Ring Tones will b part of Apple Music.
