My favourite Olympous recorder by far is the LS-P4, at last Olympus have something which perfectly fits into the recorder range and does everything well except for playing back audio through the internal speabut as people know I've never judged recorders by their dreadful internal speakers anyway.
Its possible in my view that we won't see another Olympus recorder with XLR inputs and Olympus will just cater for the market it knows, the voice recorder and camera market.

Oh yeah the wind into the buttons thing. I've never felt up an LS-100 but that sounds like there are openings someware whre the wind is going into. I remember Neal mentioning and demoing this. I didn't worry about it as much as had I got 1 like I do with my H6 I'd mostly use my AT-8022. Sure I did consider the issue because for run and gunn quick out doors stuff it would be a problem. As is the over censitivity of the XY H6 to wind. Dude those guys can't take wind at all. Shocked me it did that the LS-14 mics can handle more wind.

But why did olympus stop the ls100, why did they not make a new model improved? I am worried because they seem to have less models now and the american site is not up rite now. Hope they won't faid away, but even though, they stil didn't get to the level zoom did, and its defnitly wundering why not enough blind people use these?

Re: Test of the Google Home Max Pair

The bass sounds bouncy rather than powerful, making drums sound
synthetic and artificial. The treble sounds tinny rather than
expansive. Is this your impression of the speakers or might it be in
the recording? I wonder how the home pod compares. Did you check it
out before going with the Home Max?

Test of the Google Home Max Pair

Dane Trethowan <grtdane@...>
 


Value for money speakers

Dane Trethowan <grtdane@...>
 

Hi,

If you're in Australia then you may wish to check out Google Home Max at the
"Good Guys" retail outlets.

I stopped by my local store yesterday to get a few bits and pieces and
discovered that the Google Home Max was on sale for $299 a unit which is a
steal, my original Google Home Max cost me near $500 a year or so ago so no
excuse for me not to buy a second Google Home Max to make a "Pair" in the
kitchen.

Pairing the two speakers was easy enough and is done through the Google Home
App though the pairing procedure wasn't obvious at first so I called on my
friend Google to give me a helping hand.

I am still having a couple of issues that I need to resolve with my new
Google Home Max pair.

The first relates to Airfoil, I cannot stream to the new speaker pair -
eieither streaming stereo to the pair or to individual speaker in the pair
doesn't work - and I've not yet tried connecting an audio device to either
one of the speakers to see if the audio comes out in stereo through both
speakers in the pair, all in good time for that test I guess <smile>.

The prices quoted here are in Australian dollars so there's no reason why
residents of the US shouldn't be able to get even better deals than the one
mentioned here.

Thanks tim!

The apple airpods sound compelling for the kind of use case that I have in
mind. Mainly listening to audiobooks and podcasts on my commute, and
maintaining some awareness of my environment.

I am nevertheless very curious about some of the unbranded options, tons of
which are available on Amazon new paragraph has anybody tried any of these?

All the best,
Laurent

AirPods are particularly great for convenience of quickly placing and

Sent from my iPhoneHi all!

My trusty wired apple earpods have finally given up the ghost and I'm now
quite keen to enter the world of nifty little wireless earbuds with their
conpenient charging cases! However, I'm loathed to throw money at Apple if
similar or better functionality could be obtained elsewhere at a lower
price! So, have any of you had any good, or bad, experiences with wireless
bluetooth earbuds from other manufacturers?

I intend using these primarily for audiobooks and a bit of music on my

Low latency for effective use with Voiceover or Talkback Reasonable battery

I know for example, that Anker make the Liberty range of wireless earbuds.
Has anybody checked them out?

Re: digital audio recorders: looking for a specific type

Dane Trethowan <grtdane@...>
 

The LS-P4 performs far better when recording than do the older DM models, no comparison actually.
As I said in a previous message, playback on the internal speaker is a little compressed but to me that’s a minor irritation as that problem can be easily fixed by listening through headphones or streaming to a Bluetooth device, take your pick.
The LS-P4’s “Auto” Recording Level arrangement is superb as the recorder uses a “Look Ahead Buffer” rather than an AGC so n=no need for any “Smart Level” function as found on the LS-14.
The LS-P4 does have a downside, you can’t record to the FLAC format whilst you have a Bluetooth device connected but at least you can record to Wave at 96KHZ/24 bit should you want to.
Again this recorder may not be any good to you as it doesn’t have XLR inputs.

If you want a more accessible way to record h6 sound, the u44 does a
great job. It have the same preamps as the h6, and is compatible with
the capsuls of the h6, so you can snap them on the side of the u44,
and ajust input volume, and output volume of the interface and connect
a line in recorder to it, and you can power the u44 with 2 dubble A
batteries, and take it outside and record. Only thing that on
batteries fantum power don't seem to work, not sure if that is normal,
but that is where the capsuls just will shine.

That's a nice and easy way to add some flexibility to your recording
system
on your computer if you're looking for some stand-out microphones -
built-in
as part of the recorder or your choice of external microphones -, XLR
inputs
of course, line-in etc.

Yeah after his traffic file that's exactly what Neal did. Breathe into
that
side and yeah you hear wind like if it were going into omni mics. I almost
got a P4 for the FLAC recording and playback. But I wanted XLRs and
phantum.
lol But how doews it do with holding your place. If I have a beef with the
14 it's with the MP3 playback. That it rewinds and fast forwards too far
and
that if you shut it down it won't hold your place.
I know it's not a player like the DMs were especially those that had the

5 hours then they need to be put back into the case for recharging.
I'm not sure, but I think it's 13 hours in all.

Thanks for your thoughts.

About the Samsung earbuds: How do they charge and what is their battery life?

Also, would they work well with an iPhone?

I see they have an ambient mode, which sounds potentially useful. Any thoughts on using this mode as a blind person and how it affects perception of the environment, e.g. directionality of hearing?

on your computer if you're looking for some stand-out microphones - built-in
as part of the recorder or your choice of external microphones -, XLR inputs
of course, line-in etc.

Yeah after his traffic file that's exactly what Neal did. Breathe into that
side and yeah you hear wind like if it were going into omni mics. I almost
got a P4 for the FLAC recording and playback. But I wanted XLRs and phantum.
lol But how doews it do with holding your place. If I have a beef with the
14 it's with the MP3 playback. That it rewinds and fast forwards too far and
that if you shut it down it won't hold your place.
I know it's not a player like the DMs were especially those that had the
podcast folder. Maybe I should see about a DM 520 or 620. For MP3s. My Mile

My favourite Olympous recorder by far is the LS-P4, at last Olympus have
something which perfectly fits into the recorder range and does everything
well except for playing back audio through the internal speabut as people
know I've never judged recorders by their dreadful internal speakers
anyway.
Its possible in my view that we won't see another Olympus recorder with
XLR inputs and Olympus will just cater for the market it knows, the voice
recorder and camera market.

Re: Reccomendations for Wireless Bluetooth Earbuds

Brian Olesen
 

Hey Laurent,
Well I probably would recommend you to get the quite new Airpods if latency
is a big issue.
If sound is more important I'd either go with some Bose Soundsports free or
the Samsung EarBuds.
I really love these. The Samsungs are small. They sound really good, and
they has a sweet metal carieing case.
The price is right too for the good quality.

Emne: [all-audio] Reccomendations for Wireless Bluetooth Earbuds



Sent from my iPhoneHi all!

My trusty wired apple earpods have finally given up the ghost and I'm now
quite keen to enter the world of nifty little wireless earbuds with their
conpenient charging cases! However, I'm loathed to throw money at Apple if
similar or better functionality could be obtained elsewhere at a lower
price! So, have any of you had any good, or bad, experiences with wireless
bluetooth earbuds from other manufacturers?

I intend using these primarily for audiobooks and a bit of music on my
commute, so my priorities for function are:
Low latency for effective use with Voiceover or Talkback Reasonable battery
life, and prefferably a charging case Audio quality need not be suberb, as
long as it doesn't sound like something talking out of a toilet bowl the way
my new knock-off earpods are sounding right now! :)

I know for example, that Anker make the Liberty range of wireless earbuds.
Has anybody checked them out?

Looking forward to hearing from you!

All best,
Laurent

Yeah I don't get that either. In the case of the H6 I assume it has something against those powered USB ports. I don't know though some of these things are so picky about what port you hook them into. even my bose companion 5 speakers had a beef with 1 port.

Sound continues when in the recording tab-sheet and when I select the option to play the feed from the line-in that works as well. I can't understand the difference between this USB and the other one. Both are on the front of the tower.

Re: digital audio recorders: looking for a specific type

Hamit Campos
 

Oh by the way almost forgot. you said duel XLR. So the H6 may be too much and too big. The H4N Pro is your little friend. Again though not accessable if accessable or blind friendly means PTR2. or Olympus with the feiew that did talk. Also as this has 2 modes if you don't need multi files just keep it in stereo mode and like an Olympus it'll just record into the folders and that's it. The H5 which is a bit bigger and the mics snap off like on the H6 also could work too. The thing with the H6 is that think of it as an H4N Pro or H5 for ever in multi track mode. Thus not only does it record in folders 1 threw 10 but since you are expected to do multi track or really multi file recordings each time you record it creates a new folder with that recording in it. I find this mad annoying and waistfull for stereo but tought myself to exept it for the time being untill I get multible mics. Again surround sound is the name of my game with my H6. So it's just as well it does what it does. Just kinda extranious with what me just using an AT-8022.

for a "blind friendly" recorder. Sad ain't it? That there's nothing
that's
PTR2 accessible but with XLRs phantum and that is studio grade.
Could it be that it's supposed that blind people either don't care
for studio gear or don't know enough to do so? Sorry if that offends
anyone but 1 does have to wander why there's no true studio grade
blind friendly gear. Remember friends who knows why the Olympus DS
50 even spoke in the first place. Did olympus know or care blind
people used them? Who even knows.

How accessible is the h6?

Yes, just keep in mind that ls100 cannot record from 2 or more
inputs at the same time, only one at a time. Whereas the zoom h6
can, and to turn each input on/off, is very easy.

There use to be, the Olympus LS-100. So if you can find 1 on EBay
or Amazon go for it.

Hi,

Is there a blind-user-friendly audio recorder that has dual
XLR/1/4″ combo inputs or one XLR input and a 3.5mm input that
goes to a separate channel?
