Pardon my ignorance but what is Anchor?
I know that you can already upload recordings to Dropbox etc.

Also that you could take something recorded with Backpack Studio, for instance, and upload it to Anchor. Can that be done already I wonder?

Well we’ll really going places With Backpack Studio now.
I’ve been using the App for ages and over that time the Backpack Studio - Formally Bossjock - has become increasingly more powerful whilst keeping the flexibility and accessibility of the App at the users fingertips.
The latest version of Backpack Studio brings yet another breakthrough in my opinion and that is the ability to Stream your broadcast over the Internet right from the Backpack Studio App so this means we now have a pretty much full suite of broadcasting/DJ tools available from one App.
Broadcast whatever you want with the effects you need, the songs that your audience wants to hear, all the stingers and jingles you create and more broadcast over the Internet, recorded in real time etc.
I enjoy using Backpack Studio on my iPad Pro as it gives me plenty of room with which to work and I can assign as many Cart Decks as I need in a session.
If you don’t have an iPad Pro then you can use Backpack Studio affectively though you will need to do a lot more scrolling to get to those extra Cart Players you may wish to use.
An iTunes library is not required though for some an iTunes Library may be a good start.
You can pretty much import your music from anywhere, Dropbox, Google Drive and so on as well as from your IOS device itself.
I hope the next move considered by the developers of Backpack Studio is the ability to take music directly from Spotify or Tidal for your Broadcast Playlist.

[Mac-Access]: Latest iPad mini Model

Hi there,
I’ve had my iPad mini 2019 model for just over a week now and I really enjoy using the machine.
I had an iPad mini 4 but was glad to be rid of the unit as performance gradually declined and the machine became slower to use.
Thankfully with the new model speed seems to be the name of the game and I would have to say that the Mini is blindingly fast it seems, open an App and its opened instantly or so it seems.
There are some very good reasons to consider an iPad mini apart from the obvious size.
Apple have decided to leave the physical Home button on the Mini along with the fingerprint reader and that’s just the way I like it.
The headphone socket is also available.
Apple have left the Lightning connector on the Mini too so if you have plenty of IOS accessories then you’re going to be right at home.
Price is reasonable given that the iPad mini is using the latest A12 chip found in Apple’s Premium iPhone models so that accounts for the great performance.
I have an iPad 12 Pro 2nd Generation which is undoubtedly the best iPad machine I’ve ever used however the Pro is just far too big to use when one is sitting in an easy chair wanting to browse mail, read books with the Focus Braille Display or whatever.
The Min has stereo speakers which sound very nice but sound is very directional and can be easily muffled if you don’t have the Mini pointing in the right direction.
Speakers are close together so stereo separation is a bit of a problem. I would have preferred it if Apple had put a speaker either end of the Mini - 1 speaker at the top and one at the bottom - as this arrangement would have allowed for better clarity of sound but Apple have there reasons.
This model of iPad mini was released in March this year so why the hurry for me to buy one? I guess the fear of this model disappearing and being replaced with a model that had face recognition was the main factor for me added the good reviews I’ve seen the iPad mini get.
I believe the new iPad Air which is bigger than the iPad mini shares the same identical specifications as the Mini.

Re: A note to Plex TV users

I suggest that Media Center probably wouldn't work with this line of tuners.
I doubt whether Media Center ever had the ability to detect Network attached tuners and even then, detection of Tuners by Media Center was patchy at best.
Windows Media Center is a thing of the past and best forgotten.

Hi,
I’ve found another audio editor for the Mac called Twistedwave which is incredibly accessible and easy to use plus you get great value for money with the Lite version which I’m using now.
Firstly the App uses cursor keys to get about so you would use say home to get to the beginning and end to get to the end of the file.
Left and right cursor keys move you through the file whilst up and down cursor keys change the length of that movement.
There are facilities to fine tune your selection and navigation.
For example the user can type a specific time at which to place the cursor in the file or use the selection editor to fine tune the beginning and end points of a selection.
Plenty of keyboard shortcuts exist and all can be edited to make the learning kerb a little easier if required.
Recording facilities are provided allowing recording from multiple inputs as well as punch-in recording.
Extra channels can be added to a recording though I’ve not explored this feature as yet but will certainly do so.
Twistedwave has an effects menu so the user can either use the provided effects or add their own efforts, VST and 64-bit are all supported.
Plenty of generation options such as tone generation, speech generation etc are also provided which is a nice convenient touch to any audio software.
My only complaint at this time is the lack of audio formats supported but that’s probably a restriction of the Lite version.
Sop long as a Lossless audio format is supported then I’m not worried as I have other tools to convert to such formats as FLAC and anything else outside the standard formats used on the Mac by apple.
The lite version of Twistedwave costs $30 from the Mac Apps Store.

Another option is something like the sennheiser ambio smart headset, https://www.amazon.com/Sennheiser-AMBEO-Smart-Headset-iOS/dp/B0744PC5J8/ref=asc_df_B0744PC5J8/?tag=hyprod-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=312026001792&hvpos=1o2&hvnetw=g&hvrand=14690300091695391918&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9002059&hvtargid=pla-450898583753&psc=1

This works with your iphone and will make recordings in binaural stereo. Especially if you are recording something like a dragonboat race in which you are participating, a person listening to your recordings wearing headphones will think they are piloting the dragonboat. Binaural recordings give a very lifelike experience to the listener.
I agree with Dane in the sense that I think any iphone out there today will make as good a recording as the zoom h6 or h8. Also, depending on the iphone recording app you are using and the amount of storage space you have on your iphone, you can record at 48 kilohertz 24 kbps which is fine for high-quality recordings.
Also, if you put your phone in airplane mode with a full battery charge, you can get a whole day of recording off of one charge.
I wouldn't edit on the iphone, however. For that I would use some type of audio editing software on the mac or pc, of which there are many good options.

At the moment I just want to get a very nice sound as professional as I can at home and out and about. The Dragon-boat nationals are in October so got some time to play. While I redo my tutorial on DMR which sounds absolutely awful.

Yes, I am looking at stuff that could be overkill but such equipment is an investment so it is important to have room for growth. Rather than wanting something better 5 minutes after purchasing it.

Thanks, for your input. It is really making me think about how I get to my goals.

Hi,
Based on the description of the task at hand I’m wondering if its worth the bother using something like the Zoom recorders we’re discussing?
The H4N Pro, H6 etc are all multi track recorders and fine recorders they are.
You may consider using the iPhone or the Galaxy phone you have.
I know with the iPhone I use a very nice recording tool called Twisted Wave or the free TW Recorder.
Using the iPhone itself the recorder can record 48K Sampling. Rate in stereo which may be all that is required for a demo when using speech.
Adapters may be required for use of particular microphones. With my iPhone I use the Shure NV51 or NV88 microphones.
Amazon is a treasure trove for this sort of stuff so it might be worth spending a few minutes doing a few searches, doing some browsing and see what you come up with.

Hello Christopher,

I am a radio ham and I decided to do recordings to demonstrate how to use accessible tools to access a digital system called DMR. While my resources have been very much appreciated. I really hate them. So I had heard Garth on Audio Pizza instruct the listener how to use Reaper. I also discovered the resources by CAVI and I am working through that material.

I recently went to Barcelona to paddle for Preston Dragons. I would have loved to record parts of the dragon-boat festival. While no-one can take our memories away I would have loved a recording of that event.

This works with your iphone and will make recordings in binaural stereo. Especially if you are recording something like a dragonboat race in which you are participating, a person listening to your recordings wearing headphones will think they are piloting the dragonboat. Binaural recordings give a very lifelike experience to the listener.
I agree with Dane in the sense that I think any iphone out there today will make as good a recording as the zoom h6 or h8. Also, depending on the iphone recording app you are using and the amount of storage space you have on your iphone, you can record at 48 kilohertz 24 kbps which is fine for high-quality recordings.
Also, if you put your phone in airplane mode with a full battery charge, you can get a whole day of recording off of one charge.
I wouldn't edit on the iphone, however. For that I would use some type of audio editing software on the mac or pc, of which there are many good options.

I know with the iPhone I use a very nice recording tool called Twisted Wave or the free TW Recorder.
Using the iPhone itself the recorder can record 48K Sampling. Rate in stereo which may be all that is required for a demo when using speech.
Adapters may be required for use of particular microphones. With my iPhone I use the Shure NV51 or NV88 microphones.
Amazon is a treasure trove for this sort of stuff so it might be worth spending a few minutes doing a few searches, doing some browsing and see what you come up with.

Re: Article: File management makeover, operating system to boost iPad

Dane Trethowan <grtdane@...>
 

As I’ve said this will make everything a whole lot easier for me too.
I use Twisted wave to sample audio when using the iPad and that’s fine.
The annoyance comes when I have to get my recorded content off my iPad and the only way to do that is to upload the recording to a cloud service from the iPad, a service such as Dropbox, iCloud, Google drive etc.
Now this is all nice and easy but not so easy if you don’t for whatever reason have Internet access so immediate transfer of files to thumb drives etc is really going to make a difference.

I tried to power a sound device - Creative Sound Blaster Omni - from the iPad only to get an error, not enough power available.
All my Shure microphones work okay so they obviously take less power than does the Sound Device.

File management makeover, operating system to boost iPad Apple chief
design officer Jonathan Ive and senior vice president of hardware
engineering Dan Riccio look at the screen of an iPad in San Jose.
Picture: AP
ByCHRIS GRIFFITH,
TECHNOLOGY REPORTER
Apple’s iPad is getting a file management makeover, and that means
vastly increased functionality. You’ll be able to plug in USB drives,
SD cards, and

external drives, and access media as you would on a laptop. This is
expected

to majorly extend the iPad’s usefulness.
The new feature was announced at Apple’s Worldwide Developers
Conference in

San Jose last week and will be available around spring, when Apple
releases

its first iPad-specific operating system, iPadOS. If you can’t wait
until then, you can download a public beta (trial) version in July.
It’s one of a slew of changes to the iPad. They include a feature
called Sidecar, where you use an iPad as a second screen for a Mac.
The Files app currently lets you access and open files on an iPad, or
through various cloud services. These services include iCloud Drive,
Box, Dropbox, Microsoft OneDrive, Adobe Creative Cloud and Google
Drive. You can

move iCloud Drive files to your local drive, or use regular iPad
services to

email, share and print them.
But it lacked the versatility of managing files on external drives
available

on a laptop.
The shift to iPads with a USB-C drive has finally seen Apple make
this much

easier. iPadOS will let you plug in external hard drives, USB flash
drives and SD cards using an adaptor, and access and transfer files
to and from iPad.
Apple says the new functions will apply to all current iPad models,
iPad Air

and even five-year-old iPad Minis. But iPads with lightning
connectors rather than USB-C ones won’t be able to power external
drives. In those cases, you’ll need an external power source.
When you plug in a drive, you will be able to drill down into nested
folders, manage and move files. An external drive will be visible
along with

iPad folders, and those from the cloud services. But folders used by
the Photos app won’t be visible.
You will be able to locate images and email them as attachments, or
edit them without needing to copy them into iPad storage. You can
post files stored on external drives straight to social media.
You will be able to open a third-party video editing app on an iPad
and work

with a bunch of high-resolution videos sitting on an SD card. You can
more easily process media on the go.
The same features will work with an iPhone, although you will
currently need

a lightning adaptor, which means no external power support, and you
will have to make do with the smaller screen. You will be able to
create local folders on an iPad.
Apple is adding SMB support, so from your home network you can access
files

from a home PC, file server and network storage.
Apple also announced changes to Safari on iPad. Users will see the
desktop version of websites rather than the more limited mobile
sites. Users will be

able to manage and edit WordPress and Squarespace websites from iPad.
Apple says the new file management will support external media
formatted as

FAT, exFAT (used by Windows), HFS and APFS (used by macOS) Safari on
iPad will have a download manager — again, the iPad will have a more
desktop-like functionality. The Files app will interact with a
downloads folder.
There’s lots of general changes. The iPad home page will display
widgets on

the left side and you can configure a series of widgets that scroll
up from

the bottom.
There’s new gestures for accessing several apps at the same time side
by side.
You can have two instances of the same app running next to one
another. You

could show two Notes app documents side by side, scroll through one
and selectively copy text to the other. Slide over mode lets you
access selected

apps by sliding left from the right side of the screen. You could set
up your iPad to access your calendar, mail and messages in this way.
Text editing has been overhauled. Scrolling up and down documents
requires less effort, moving the cursor around a document is more
intuitive, you can

copy and paste using three finger gestures, and Apple virtual
keyboards support swipe typing.
Apple says it has reduced the latency (delay) using Apple Pencil from
about

24 to 9 milliseconds.

I’m sure many of you on list were following along and what an event it
was, certainly far better than the other session Apple held a few months
back.
The highlight for me was the announcement that iTunes is to be split
into 3 different Apps and not before time too I hear you all say.
Apple Music App will handle all your music. Apple Podcasts your podcasts
etc and Apple TV for the rest, sound familiar? It certainly does so if
you’re using an IOS device.

This is only a guess.
I tried to power a sound device - Creative Sound Blaster Omni - from the iPad only to get an error, not enough power available.
All my Shure microphones work okay so they obviously take less power than does the Sound Device.

Great, but it brings me back to my post earlier as to why I need an
IMak rather, I mean, why is the photos folder not vvisible? I do
understand the power issue, but why can the lightning port not power
drives, it can power sertin soundcards?
But of corse each bit helps.

File management makeover, operating system to boost iPad

Apple’s iPad is getting a file management makeover, and that means vastly
increased functionality. You’ll be able to plug in USB drives, SD cards, and

external drives, and access media as you would on a laptop. This is expected

to majorly extend the iPad’s usefulness.
The new feature was announced at Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference in

San Jose last week and will be available around spring, when Apple releases

its first iPad-specific operating system, iPadOS. If you can’t wait until
then, you can download a public beta (trial) version in July.
It’s one of a slew of changes to the iPad. They include a feature called
Sidecar, where you use an iPad as a second screen for a Mac.
The Files app currently lets you access and open files on an iPad, or
through various cloud services. These services include iCloud Drive, Box,
Dropbox, Microsoft OneDrive, Adobe Creative Cloud and Google Drive. You can

move iCloud Drive files to your local drive, or use regular iPad services to

email, share and print them.
But it lacked the versatility of managing files on external drives available

on a laptop.
The shift to iPads with a USB-C drive has finally seen Apple make this much

easier. iPadOS will let you plug in external hard drives, USB flash drives
and SD cards using an adaptor, and access and transfer files to and from
iPad.
Apple says the new functions will apply to all current iPad models, iPad Air

and even five-year-old iPad Minis. But iPads with lightning connectors
rather than USB-C ones won’t be able to power external drives. In those
cases, you’ll need an external power source.
When you plug in a drive, you will be able to drill down into nested
folders, manage and move files. An external drive will be visible along with

iPad folders, and those from the cloud services. But folders used by the
Photos app won’t be visible.
You will be able to locate images and email them as attachments, or edit
them without needing to copy them into iPad storage. You can post files
stored on external drives straight to social media.
You will be able to open a third-party video editing app on an iPad and work

with a bunch of high-resolution videos sitting on an SD card. You can more
easily process media on the go.
The same features will work with an iPhone, although you will currently need

a lightning adaptor, which means no external power support, and you will
have to make do with the smaller screen. You will be able to create local
folders on an iPad.
Apple is adding SMB support, so from your home network you can access files

from a home PC, file server and network storage.
Apple also announced changes to Safari on iPad. Users will see the desktop
version of websites rather than the more limited mobile sites. Users will be

able to manage and edit WordPress and Squarespace websites from iPad.
Apple says the new file management will support external media formatted as

FAT, exFAT (used by Windows), HFS and APFS (used by macOS)
Safari on iPad will have a download manager — again, the iPad will have a
more desktop-like functionality. The Files app will interact with a
downloads folder.
There’s lots of general changes. The iPad home page will display widgets on

the left side and you can configure a series of widgets that scroll up from

the bottom.
There’s new gestures for accessing several apps at the same time side by
side.
You can have two instances of the same app running next to one another. You

could show two Notes app documents side by side, scroll through one and
selectively copy text to the other. Slide over mode lets you access selected

apps by sliding left from the right side of the screen. You could set up
your iPad to access your calendar, mail and messages in this way.
Text editing has been overhauled. Scrolling up and down documents requires
less effort, moving the cursor around a document is more intuitive, you can

copy and paste using three finger gestures, and Apple virtual keyboards
support swipe typing.
Apple says it has reduced the latency (delay) using Apple Pencil from about

24 to 9 milliseconds.
