Whom is this distributor? I wander if they would know why Olympus got rid of the 100. It was so epic! If only it had the smart mode of the ls-14. Smrt mode by the way is this mode where you go into recording stand buy. But the mics come on super low because they are listening for something loud. So you then make the loudest noise you are going to record and hit the recored button as you do this. The recorder now opens the mics fully but at a level that should be propper for what you are recording.

Thank you Hamit, for your thoughts.  Talking with the Olympus distributor, I got the impression that the 720 was just like the 520.  Any time I used the 520 for music, I either transferred the files to my computer or just connected the 520 directly to my stereo.  To my old ears, it sounded as good as I could want.

Ah hi Howard. Ah the good old trusty DM-520. I too had 1. I had the 420 before. Meh I don't know why Olympus made 2. They were basically the same thing but the 520 did a few more things and the reason I prefered it is that it did LPCM WAV. Of course only at CD or DVD quality. But hay DVD is better then your usual Olympus stuff. The 720 like the P-4 takes 1 triple A and is small. The sound of the 720 and the LS-p4 is too mini me for my liking. I'm sure 1 can get these older recorders on Ebay. Hell I've even seen the DM-620 on Amazon.

I bought an Olympus DM-520 (I think was the number) about ten years ago. It was a great tiny device and I used it to record everything. Recently, the power slide switch has stopped working. It's a mechanical switch with some sort of spring to make it return to a center position. Contacting the Olympus distribution point, I found that they no longer support that model and they suggest I purchase a DM-720 as a replacement.  After the covid thing goes away, I will have a friend take a look at the switch.  If he can't do anything with it, I'll see if I can justify buying the newer model.

Hello,

I am still in the market for a new recorder. I did look at zooms but
I'm needing menu accessibility with my recorder, I'm not really
needing an app or anything like that I am just looking for a
standalone recorder.

What are opinions on current Olympus recorders?

Thanks.
Dave.

Smiling: Yes Sir...that did the trick! Now this particular CD that I am
ripping; apparently the source that it reads from doesn't have a match for
it, for it's not giving me track info! But am guessing that this lies in
the fault of the CD! But at least I am on the right track now! Thanks!

Hello list: Don't know as I can provide enough information here, but will
try: recently, the CD-DVD drive on my Dell desk top died on me! So I called
my computer guy, who in turn came and took a look; he said, sure enough,
that the CD-DVD Burner drive had died, but that he could get me a new one in
a few days! Unfortunately, the Coronavirus screwed everything up (still
have not heard from the computer guy) in the meantime, I was told that
Amazon had USB CD-DVD drives that would do the same thing! So with the help
of a good friend of mine, I found one on Amazon (is a Dell, but don't
remember the model number) is supposed to be able to play CDs, burn CDs and
rip.the whole thing! I got the new CD-DVD drive a couple of days ago; this
afternoon, a friend of mine who helps take care of my yard came by to cut
the grass; he had this CD that he wanted me to listen to! So I decided I'd
put this new drive through its paces and see what it'd do; I put the CD into
the drive and.Winamp did come up and the CD started to play! So here's
where the "fun" begins: I decided I'd rip it to my computer! I brought up
Cdex, expecting to see the tracks to be ripped and.nothing! Zero! What am
I supposed to do to make Cdex understand that I want to rip this CD? Am I
forgetting something? As best as I remember, when I used to rip CDs with
the original drive that was in the computer, I could just pop that bad boy
in there, bring up Cdex and it was ready to rock and roll; not so with this
new CD-DVD drive! Did I buy the wrong thing? I was surely thinking that
this little USB Drive would do what I needed; it said that it would burn and

I believe the problem is that you need to point CDEx to the external

Just because that seems strange that the CD won't show like it's

Do you have another CD you've tried before Thom? I'd tri that first.
Just because that seems strange that the CD won't show like it's
supposed to. Maybe it's 1 of those lame as in stupid anti coppy tricks.
But let us know if a trusted CD does the same.

Re: olympus recorders

Hamit Campos
 

Ah first it's more pro then them. It has the rechargable battery like the DM4 though. Man that's another Olympus I wish I'd grabbed. Ah the good old DM-4. So the LS-100. Yeah it's more pro and like the H4N and H4N Pro of Zoom it had 2 XLRs 24 or full 48 vults of phantum power and multi tracking. But like the Marantz recorders and I think Tascam you don't have to dive threw menus to turn the phantum on or off. It had switches on the side for each XLR. Now to switch the current then yes you had to dive threw a menu. Yes the DM720 could be like the 4 and 5. It's a consumer MP3 WAV player after all. It's just more mini me then those 2. Oh and another thing you can set the time on the 720 and LSp4. They had the british lady go back to the studio and speak those menus. The LS-100 also has this brit lady. No Synth like the DM4 did. Which though I prefer the Brit lady the disadvantage is that obviously you can't have the thing read file names. So that's another difference. I do wander why Olympus got Rid of the 100.

Re: olympus recorders

Hamit Campos
 

The popular 1 is the LS-P4. As i said to someone else or maybe you it's a little mini me recorder. It takes 1 triple a battery. For that person's need it seemed okay. Because it is a dictation recorder which I guess is what the person needed as they had a DS-50 before. Just note it has a mini me little sound to it. Saddly Olympus got rid of their truely epic LS-100 recorder. It was like a talking Zoom H4N Pro. Also the phantum power had switches so you didn't have to dive threw menus to power condensers for ORTF or what ever 1 wanted to do. But ORTF would be what I'd mostly do.

Re: Overall accessibility of Zoom H6

Hamit Campos
 

Hi Mike. Well if you are like me and get totally lost without speach no it ain't accessible but for arming and disarming and recording and stopping. There are no beeps so if you pause your recording you'd better remember you did to either re-start or not pause a recording by axident. I've done just that. Now I don't wana sound like it's tottaly not usable at all. I do have 1. It is unusable if you don't like to have headphones on and again if menus not talking confuses you if you don't have someone to read them. So tip 1 from me keep headphones handy. This way you can hear the mics come on if you light them up. Or you can hear if you use the XLRs weather they are stereo linked or not. I keep asking zoom to please oh please at least have someone sit in a studio like Olympus did. Because I think a speach synth would cost more no? Now the F6 is like the older and at this point some of the cheeper Olympus recorders. It does beep for starting pausing and stopping recordings, It beeps for low batteries oh yeah and that's another thing no warning from the H6. It just saves the file and dies. Yes obviously the screen shows the battery but again these things don't speak. So in any event back to the F6 for a second and the F8N for that matter. There's another beep for something else that I can't remember right now but the point is that those at least do those few beeps like the earlier before the DS recorders Olympus. Now you can call the Aira people or use Be My Eyes. That's what I've done. I also have my neice Abby help me too.

Hello everyone,

I have been noticing a lot of discussion about the Zoom H6, so I know that it can be used by blind people. Does anyone know of a podcast which specifically discusses the level of accessibility of this unit. Does the unit have voice guidance such as many Olympus recorders, or is there a different approach to use from a blindness perspective?

With thanks in advance,

Mike



Re: Andrew binaural mics

Georgina Joyce
 

Hello Andrew,

I think this is what you need to power them from the H6.


The VXLR+ is a 3.5mm female TRS socket to male XLR adaptor, which will convert 12-48V Phantom Power down to 3-5V 'Plug in Power', allowing RØDE on-camera microphones such as the VideoMicro and VideoMic GO, as well as self-worn microphones like the HS2 Headset Mic to receive power from the XLR input. The 3.5mm socket also features the same threaded connector as used on the output cable of the HS2 Headset Microphone, and the RØDELink Filmmaker Kit Receiver, ensuring the connection to your XLR input is secure and won't disconnect during your recording.

Regards,

Hello Andrew,

Still looking. I can’t see the 9v pack. However, I think they do a fantom power converter for those mics, model MM-PPC. It’s expensive though.

The sight is lacking so much information and if they ignore your enquiry that’s not good.

I am going to see if an adapter can be found more locally.

I look forward to your input.

Hello Andrew,

I am looking over the website you recommended. I understand you like the MM-BSM-9 version which has the Shure clips to fix to your clothing. Have you tried the MM-BSM-8? these are mounted on a headband to wear like headphones. But to all intense and purposes they are the same mic but mounted differently.

In addition, how does their battery pack work? It would be grate if they did a XLR plug adapter to take fantom. So does their battery pack enable then to use a xLR adapter?
