New Zoom F8

Andy
 

Hi all.

I'm thinking seriously of upgrading from my Lovely Zoom H6 to the new Zoom F8.

Anyone on this list got one or thinking of getting one and the near future?

Also, do you know of Neal Ewars has assessed this device for VI people yet?


Very best wishes.

Andy.


XLR adaptability

frank cuta
 

Hosa makes a great dual XLR to eighth inch mini stereo plug cable about
ten feet long which works great with a pair of AKG C1000 condensers and a
Plextalk 2. I am sure it would work well with the Olympus as well if it has
an external mic input.

Only my 2 cents worth.
A good general purpose recorder it seems though for the money I think I'd
rather purchase an Olympus LS-P4 which seems to sell for around the same
amount of money.
For those who have not seen an Olympus LS-P4 the buttons are very well laid
out and tactile marks are used for quick identification of function keys.
I'm not worried that recorders at this price level don't have XLR
connectivity as we're not talking professional studio recorders here anyway
and the inclusion of XLR connectors usually make for a larger recorder
because of the size of the actual connectors themselves.

I'm on the site right now. That's how I found out it can do 48 KHZ 24
bits. I do wander though how the recordings from it sound. All the stuff
Neal gets into. What's the floor noise level. The frequency responce of the
mikes, and if it does have a jacks what's the pre amp noise level.

it. I downloaded the manual and listened to some of the YouTube videos

Does anybody here have any experience with the Eltrinex digital

that some here want, but people who have used it seem to be happy with
it and it seems to have complete accessibility even if the price is
high for its recording features. You can read about it at

Yep thanks and I did have a DM7 for a little while, worst ever

The recorder felt cheap and the day I got the recorder bits started
breaking off.
In the end I was perfectly happy to throw the recorder away and go
back to the DM4.
Now the Olympus LS-P4 is here there's no going back foo a DM4 for me,
just too many advantages to be had with the DM4.

Of corse olympus continued the work after the dm4, they done the dm7

setting on wich allow file names to be spoken, but with dm7 there is
no such thing, it just works. It read everything even the password

Hi Dane.


I will report back tomorrow but my understanding is that the ls-p1

The manual seems to indicate that voice guidance is there but I
will confirm tomorrow.


Believe me if it doesn't its going back right away grin!

I hope I'm wrong, I think the LS-P1 is one of Those that don't

As I understand it the LS-P1 is the model down from the LS-p2 and
lacks some of the functionality of the P2 including Voice
Guidance.
As per your question regarding TTS? I'll need some help on this
but to my knowledge the DM4 was one of the few Olympus recorders
to have a fully fledged TTS built-in so that's why that
particular model was able to handle so much more in the form of
Daisy books and so on.
It is a pity that Olympus never continued on with the good work
of the
DM4 to finish the job but there we are.

Hi listers,


Eagerly awaiting the arrival tomorrow of my ls-p1 recorder and
had one question.


Does the ls-p series actually contain a text to speech
synthesizer as I am told the olympus dm-4 does?


I ask because I would like to give names to the folders on the
recorder and possibly create new ones and have their names
spoken.


Thanks in advance.

Professional mics

frank cuta
 

A better full range mic is my pair of AT4041 but for on location recording
I will stick with my C1000 large diaphrams because they offer optional
battery portability.

Not to meantion 14 has smart mode. Which isn't perfect, but when it
works vbro it's awesome. That's why I wish they had put XLRs on it. Then
youwould be all set. But yeah the mikes on the 100 are better frequencie
responce wize. But I don't bother with the 3 mikes on my 14 so much. I
just use my real mike. The Audio Technica AT-8022. But dude if the LS 14
had XLRs like the 100 does then you could use the 4021 mikes. Which hear
full range. From 20 Hz to full 20 KHZ. The 8022 only goes up to 15. Or
better yet you could use a pare of 4022 omni mikes in spaced omni
configuration or the Rode NT-5 mikes that can be cardiode or omni.

the only recorder that have the ability to split files while recording
in real time. And yes to overdub is so easy on both ls14 and p4.

To be honest I've not seen this documented well anywhere.
The manual may reference this in a diagram perhaps but no verbal description exists.
I stumbled across this whilst playing about with the recorder when trying to set the time.

Okay.
During clock set use the F3 key to toggle between 12 and 24 hour clock mode.
The recorder won’t announce which mode its in but you’ll know by using the up/down keys to move between the hours, if you’re in 24-hour mode you’ll hear values lead out larger than 12 obviously.

Re: Another Olympus recorder question:

Dane Trethowan <grtdane@...>
 

Only my 2 cents worth.
A good general purpose recorder it seems though for the money I think I’d rather purchase an Olympus LS-P4 which seems to sell for around the same amount of money.
For those who have not seen an Olympus LS-P4 the buttons are very well laid out and tactile marks are used for quick identification of function keys.
I’m not worried that recorders at this price level don’t have XLR connectivity as we’re not talking professional studio recorders here anyway and the inclusion of XLR connectors usually make for a larger recorder because of the size of the actual connectors themselves.

In the end I was perfectly happy to throw the recorder away and go

Now the Olympus LS-P4 is here there’s no going back foo a DM4 for me,
just too many advantages to be had with the DM4.

In these situations I always hope I’m wrong, so are you going to have the P1 swapped for a P4 or think about something entirely different.

Re: Enjoy The Dove

Smart mode isn’t everything.
The LS-P4 has a solution, you can normalise the recording.
If you’re not sure where to set the level for your recording then set the level to a fairly low value.
Start your recording and - if necessary - apply the normalise function to the recording when finished.
As you will hear with my capture of the Dove, the ‘Auto” mode does a pretty good job for most things.

There’s one problem with the reading of the time and date setting that

Re: Another Olympus recorder question:

Hamit Campos
 

Yeah that's kinda too bad the eltrinex  doesn't have that stuff. But then again they ain't promoing it as a super awesome epic pro recorder either. Meh just a little note taking thing. But again it can do Blu-Ray disk quality audio. I red something about recording in stereo so it either must have stereo mikes or a stereo mike jack. Sounds curious though. I'd like to hear the audio from 1. But meh maybe not something I'd jump on right away as I do want phantum power and XLRs and what not. I ended up getting the LS 14 due to money more than that being what I wanted. However, it does have features that make me wish that it had XLRs and phantum power. It's almost perfect but for that. Make it something Zoom H5 like even and it's golden.

As I understand it the LS-P1 is the model down from the LS-p2 and
lacks some of the functionality of the P2 including Voice Guidance.
As per your question regarding TTS? I’ll need some help on this but
to my knowledge the DM4 was one of the few Olympus recorders to have
a fully fledged TTS built-in so that’s why that particular model was
able to handle so much more in the form of Daisy books and so on.
It is a pity that Olympus never continued on with the good work of
the
DM4 to finish the job but there we are.

Hi listers,


Eagerly awaiting the arrival tomorrow of my ls-p1 recorder and had
one question.


Does the ls-p series actually contain a text to speech synthesizer
as I am told the olympus dm-4 does?


I ask because I would like to give names to the folders on the
recorder and possibly create new ones and have their names spoken.


Thanks in advance.

Of corse olympus continued the work after the dm4, they done the dm7 wich have improvements there. Example, on dm4 you had to switch a setting on wich allow file names to be spoken, but with dm7 there is no such thing, it just works. It read everything even the password for wifi.

I will report back tomorrow but my understanding is that the ls-p1 is

The manual seems to indicate that voice guidance is there but I will
confirm tomorrow.


Believe me if it doesn't its going back right away grin!

Re: Another Olympus recorder question:

Yes your correct Dane and I am returning the ls-p1.


There doesn't seem to be voice guidance.


Really unfortunate because it would have met my needs if it did.


Oh well at least I can get my money back.


Off to check out the eltrinex.
