Audio learning resources

Tony Sweeney
 

Hi folk,


I wonder as a comparative newbee could you recommend any tutorials/podcasts etc. for learning audio as a beginner.


Thinking of say file sizes, compression anddifferent file types and other to get started with?



It would be good to know too how to know what can be sent say in an email as compared with just providing a link to a file sharing service?


Thanks for any assist with this,


Tony Sweeney


new Aftershokz headset question

Drew Hunthausen
 

Dear list,

Thought I'd put this out there on this list as it is kind of related. I just
purchased the new Aftershokz Xtrainers which are their water proof model for
swimming. Since Bluetooth doesn't work underwater these are mp3 with
storage. I'm trying to figure out how to download podcasts and or music on
to them from my computer through i-tunes/ I-cloud but can't figure it out.
The Headset blugs into the computer and a drive comes up to download the
content to, just can't figure out how to use itunes or icould to do this.
Open to other methods as well. Thanks

Here's the response from Sound Devices

Georgina Joyce
 

Hello Georgina,

Thank you for contacting Sound Devices. Thank you for your inquiry about accessibility regarding the Wingman application as well. I have contacted our marketing team, and I actually found the following response to a similar recent request:

The MixPre-3 II is fairly accessible to visually impaired users. I would recommend a Custom mode approach where the front-panel knobs can be set as the only gain control. Our Wingman app for iPhone works fairly well with the accessibility feature.

I don't have additional information regarding the Android platform, but I assume it is similar. I will pass your suggestions for accessibility along to Product Development, since this is a second request is a short period of time, which is awesome!

Thank you for your inquiry!

Best regards,
Danny Greenwald

Your original inquiry:
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Is your app accessible on smart phones?
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Environment:
Explain the details about the environmental conditions when the issue occurred.
Hello, I am a potential new customer. I am blind and need a screen reader to read and guide interactions of a applications either on the PC or smart phone.

The blind community are very excited about 32 bit floating point recording. Because setting the gain stage correctly has always been a hit and miss affair. I am sure you know that the Zoom F6 is your competition and a few blind people have already recorded a guide on how to use the F6. They state that the app is partly accessible. However, I see your offering has an Android app too. I installed it on a Galaxy S8 hoping to see a dummy recorder to explore how accessible it is. Unfortunately, as I don't have a MixPre-3 I cannot evaluate accessibility.

Therefore, have your apps been built with accessibility in mind with equal access to all? Can the menu system be scrolled and selections made via IOS = VoiceOver Android = Talkback or in the case of Samsung phones Voice Assistant?

Such an investment for many of us is huge so we don't have the funds to buy and deal with accessibility later. So would one of your recorders supported by smart phone apps be accessible to screen reader users? Could someone honestly check and report?

Thank you
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Re: F6 reviews

Georgina Joyce
 

Hello Frank,

Better build quality and Android an IOS apps were stated. Along with having to buy an additional bluetooth dongle. Which prompted him to prefer the MixPre-3 II. Don’t forget he has both devices that he paid for out of his own money.

Furthermore, a selling point for the Zoom is that you get twice as many XLR’s for the same money. Just think what he is saying there.

Regards,

Hello All,

You will note that Curtis favoured the Sound Devices MixPre-3 II over the Zoom F6. On build and the remote for the F6 is very expensive. The Sound Devices machine doesn’t have a dedicated one but several cheaper third party ones are available. Curtis found the F6 too small and the plastic knobs wobble and as he pointed out if they are mounted on a circuit board then it is a weak design. I have written to Sound Devices to see if their IOS and Android apps are accessible to screen readers.

Re: Olympus DM-720 impressions?

Hamit Campos
 

Oh yes I did forget something. I don’t have the DM 720 but if those that had the 420 or 520 used the podcast folder as I did know that’s this folder is now gone on the 720. This may affect playback. Because the recorder would remember where you left off even after shut down. This is 1 beef I do have with the LS-14 as well and in general I hate how it rewinds too far.

Tom, have you ever had or had reason to know about the 520? I'm wondering how much like the 520 is the 720? I.E., the input jack is shared between mic and line and is located at the business end between the microphones; the audio output jack is 3.5MM and located on the side; the remote control jack is 2.5MM and also on the side; the USB port is also the charging connector and is on the end away from the mics; the power and key lock is a slider on the side near the record, stop and play buttons. This describes the 520.

Hello Aidan,

Who told you this? I have updated and I don’t have any bleeps. It maybe that the update didn’t take. The sighted agent had difficulty in seeing the screen, so I will wait until daylight and get them to check the version. In reading the notes I see the bleeps are for when used in conjunction with a camera and they appear on the film.

I will clarify this tomorrow.

Re: A Zoom question.

Colin Howard
 

Joe,

thanks.

I'll look it up but am aware of possible delays.

Meantime, I received the following email which would seem to answer most, if
not all my needs. A friend has an amazon account I don't, will ask them to
purchase for me. I've written back to the original sender to ask if the
system needs power or can obtain enough if plugged into an USB un-powered
hub.

Email follows:

********************
Possible WebCam for Zoom.

From: Mike <mike@...>
Date: Mon, 18 May 2020 13:49:10 +0100

Hi Colin

I recently bought this camera from Amazon for about £50 (link below).

https://amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B07FNB2KDQ/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Very easy to use, USB connection, no set up or drivers required, it just
works when plugged in, on a Windows 10 machine anyway.

It includes an integrated microphone and no switches required. Zoom uses
Alt + A to switch mike on or off and Alt + V to switch video on or off.

The camera is designed to hook over a monitor but will stand on a flat
surface with tilt and also has a standard threaded hole in the base to
accept a camera tripod or similar.

I'm sure there are cheaper but this one is good quality and provides HD
video.

Hope that helps, good luck

Kind Regards,
Mike

Hello Hamit,

You are correct. Although he doesn’t say exactly what key to press for selecting OK or as the manual states Yes,. He says scroll to continue. It will be clear as mud, when I try it.

Did you say Neil has done a demo with your favourite mic? Is this for public consumption or did he do it for you.

I did when they did it with the F recorders.
I also said you’ve taken your first step. Like Olympus did. Hopefully you all can get to talking menus and settings at some point.

Hi Mike. Well if you are like me and get totally lost without speach no

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: Olympus DM-720 impressions?

Howard Traxler
 

Tom, have you ever had or had reason to know about the 520?  I'm wondering how much like the 520 is the 720?  I.E., the input jack is shared between mic and line and is located at the business end between the microphones; the audio output jack is 3.5MM and located on the side; the remote control jack is 2.5MM and also on the side; the USB port is also the charging connector and is on the end away from the mics; the power and key lock is a slider on the side near the record, stop and play buttons.  This describes the 520.

Re: Overall accessibility of Zoom H6

Hi Gena. Better YouTube it as John did a vid on how to do it. But here’s what I seem to remember John saying. As you pull the switch to power up hold the play button down. Wait until that upgrade screen comes up. use the menu lever to go to okay and then I guess just leave it be. Again best YouTube how to upgrade H6 to be safe.

Hello,

Thanks for the heads up. Does anyone know what buttons are required? They have used graphics to show the button to be held while turning on and the button to be pressed to confirm.
