Re: Overall accessibility of Zoom H6

Aidan
 

It is werth noticing that you must update the h6 firmware
Then you will find that there are beeps for recording/stopping.

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,

Re: olympus recorders

Aidan
 

Yes i love the ls100 and also wish i got it. I do have the ls14 though, and
its a very unique recorder because it have the ability to make use of both
standby recording and instant recording when using auto gain moad. It also
can split files when recording in wave in realtime dearing recording. I
also like it that it have a seprit line in jack.
One thing of the ls100 wich is great is that although the multi track
functions didn't speak, it is very possible to use them.

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

Any time I used the 520 for music, I either transferred the files to

old ears, it sounded as good as I could want.

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

Recently, the power slide switch has stopped working. It's 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

Re: A Zoom question.

Colin,
I think it was called the life-cam, from Microsoft.
You will be verry lucky to buy anything in U K outlets at present.

A big shortage due to the accelleration of online meetings and so on.
requiring camera and mic kits.
So much so, that a company we work with, have bought there employees
laptops, and are using the in-built web cams and microphones because
they can not locate any camera's or microphones for remote working.
But when available, The Microsoft Life-cam, retailed for about 28 uk
pounds, and really easy to set up, clips to the top edge of your monitor.
Plug and play, beeing microsoft, drivers already on most windows 7, 8
and windows 10 systems.
Good luck.

A reasonable microphone for the job you want it to do.


Re: F6 reviews

Georgina Joyce
 

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.

A Zoom question.

Colin Howard
 

Greetings,

Please can anybody advise what kind of webcam I can purchase. Currently
using Windows7 on a desktop, I want it to be purely plug-in-and-use, with no
additional setup, in colour, presumably with a mike, the WebCam, capable of
simply standing on a desk or table useable from a un-powered USB hub.

Presently, I only have an USB mike but would like to show video of my self
when attending meetings.

I assume when, in the Zoom I am advised video is off, some kind of switch on
the cam ought to put it on, same with mike which when I join I am advised
audio is muted. This, I unmute using alt with a as instructed by the Zoom
system.

I have no sight and no readily accessible sighted assistance, therefore, the
WebCam for which I am looking must be totally accessible for me.

Where can I obtain such a basic WebCam please?

Thanks.

Hello Frank,

The problem with the cloud lifter is that you need 2 cables. Where as the
Fethead is in line. Fethead also have a version that passes fantom on to the
mic should you need gain on a condenser. I think the Fethead may be a little
cheaper too.

much
gain you get but 24 dB seems close. Given this additional gain you can
operate your recorder preamps in a more comfortable mid range setting.

Hello All,

Rather than making the current discussion on Zoom
Microphones. very long
I thought I would ask the community of their experiences
and how they
undertake a recording? As I was not sure if Andy wanted
tips
on recording
techniques I thought such a thread would help him and
those
of us who
have a Zoom.

Firstly, I would record in wav. Then use reaper to apply
a
noise gate.
This removes hiss and other quiet unwanted noises.

I would not use a capsule on the recorder unless it was
the
only mic
available for that application. Using such a mic I would
secure the
recorder and start the recording early so that I could
discard the first
second as it will contain handling noise.

I would not wear noisy clothing or jewellery and try to
get
away from the
active recording space. It is surprising how clothing,
shoes and bangles
rustle and jangle when you are trying to be quiet.

Then it is about choosing the mic for the sound stage I
am
trying to
capture. Remembering that the wider stage means that I
have
to be that
much quieter. It could pick me up breathing and moving my
feet.

Then there are practical considerations such as power for
the Zoom and
protection from wind and rain.

Of the top of my head these are the considerations I
would
employ before
a recording. So what about your experiences and approach?

It is a great pity that they are not responding to enquiries at the moment and their web page is very poor. You'd think that the next below an item, such as the BSM 9's, the next link would be titled Acceseries?

I think that the Lock Down is very much affecting everyone and I believe that most places are closed.

I cannot get through to Dell UK or Roberts Radios and now this place. a load of other specialised companiesalso.

would it not be dredfull if this lock down went on another year?

I've got a small box that I purchased with my first set of BSM 9's. I remember it was very cheep.

It's got a 4 inch cable coming from the front with asmall minijack on the end of it. At the other side of the box is a minijack socket.

The box has 4 tiny screws so you can take the top off. there is a PP3 battery inside .

Now I cannot remember if this was a small power pack or something to do withGain enhancer or even some form off attinuation amp.. I remember that there was a swich inside that could be moved from one of two settings.

I wish I could only find it. It's in an old butter container with my oldBSM 9's. but Gena, you should see this wee study I'v got, its a mess and I simply cannot find anything.
It's a disgrace! I cannot even clean the surfaces down and boy it's almost impossible to find anything . It really bugs my wife because of how my study looks when visitors come.

Gena check out this:

Perhaps we can get our kit from them if they also closed.

Andy.

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?

Hello Joe and list: Thanks; think I've got it solved! But while I'm writing, the CD I ripped did not give me track info! So do I need to re-do anything, seeing as how I'm using the external drive now?

Tom,
If you still have problems, you might disable the on-board drive in
device manager.
Then Cdex should find the drive having if necessary, made adjustments in
cdx settings.

Re: olympus recorders

Hamit Campos
 

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.

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!

Drive

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
rip! So what am I missing here? If someone can give me instruction here,
I'd sure appreciate it!
