Another Cool idea for those that want to get audio off the iphone

If the subject line is a bit screwed up sorry about that. But here's a vid of a cool large diafram condencer that is a recorder but also I guees you can hook it to the IPhone. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s9OsMRBWKd0&feature=em-uploademail

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.

I should warn you before you go ahead with your iMac purchase that the modern-day iMac - as great a tool as it is - does not have a built-in sound device any longer, only built-in microphones and a headphone output so you’re going to need some sort of external sound Interface more than likely.
There are of course many interfaces available so take your pick.
As to why Apple decided to take away the built-in sound Interface from the Mac line? Well that’s Apple for you ain’t it <smile>.
I think it only fair to point out to you that - if its the all-in-one convenience you grave then there are Windows alternatives if you would rather not go down the Mac road.
I have been using Mac machines now for. 25 years full-time and I have enjoyed every minute of my experience.
I started with a Mac LC-630 machine with Outspoken.
Apple lead the charge with the Introduction of the VoiceOver Screen Reader in OSX Tiger back in 2005, thankfully Windows has followed suit with Narrator.

Thank you for bringing this model of speaker to my attention.
The thing I really liked about the Amazon Alexa Tap was its portability even though this was limited to the boundaries of a Wifi network there will still ways around this.
One could take the Tap wherever one wanted to journey to and use the Hotspot feature of your Smart Device as a Wifi connection to the Tap.
Overkill one might say and that’s true but one has to admit that Voice Assistants are just damn convenient particularly when they perform the tasks you wish to your exacting standards <smile>.

You can use dropbox with many iphone apps to export audio from an iphone.

Hello,

I didn’t explain very well as it was early hours of the morning. Obviously, the microphone changes an analog signal to a digital one. So the phone’s DAC is only relevant in respect of editing. However, there is still paths for the digital signal to travel and pick up noise. As I said, manufacturers have been focusing upon video advances at the expense of audio. I could imagine getting a Gig of audio would be quite difficult off an iPhone. The Galaxy S8 would be easier but it’s the S9 and 10 that are stereo and have a good audio system.

Hello,

I forgot to return to the fact that the DAC Digital to Audio Converter is not the best. So whatever bit rate and depth is used, or whatever microphone is used the recording will suffer. As you can appreciate, phone manufacturers have only just starting to focus on audio because there was a demand to improve video and camera functionality in the past. I am really seeking something more professional than a phone’s DAC.

Hi, Georgina.
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.

Re: Portable digital recorders

Georgina Joyce
 

Hello,

I didn’t explain very well as it was early hours of the morning. Obviously, the microphone changes an analog signal to a digital one. So the phone’s DAC is only relevant in respect of editing. However, there is still paths for the digital signal to travel and pick up noise. As I said, manufacturers have been focusing upon video advances at the expense of audio. I could imagine getting a Gig of audio would be quite difficult off an iPhone. The Galaxy S8 would be easier but it’s the S9 and 10 that are stereo and have a good audio system.

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.

Re: Portable digital recorders

Dane Trethowan <grtdane@...>
 

Just to make it clear I wasn’t specifically saying you should use an iPhone for editing rather capturing your audio - recording - and then porting it to Reaper or whatever floats your boat.

On 9 Jun 2019, at 7:24 am, Georgina Joyce <gena@...> wrote:

Hello Dane,

No I don’t want to play with the phone route for editing. I am putting effort to learn Reaper and add FX. The Demo needs to be done via multi-track. Because my one track take is awful. Thus the Zoom route sounds good as it will provide quality source on SD which can be accessed by my Mac and then done with as I like for outdoor recordings. I am a keyboard junky and can use IOS and Android touch devices but I don’t like them. I think that extra money spent on a Zoom would be better than breaking my over £1000 iPhone. I would record on an Android because it could be stored on a SD like the Zoom for future editing and mastering. But I am not convinced that the DAC on a phone is up to the mark.

The more suggestions you have then the better you will be informed regarding your buying decisions and investments, obviously whatever you buy you want to last.
I have a Zoom F8N recorder as its a machine that can handle every recording task I’m likely ever to take on whether those tasks be as simple as recording meetings or as complex as recording an entire jam session.
The same size doesn’t fit all however and we all have budgets that we come up against so - even though I have a Zoom F8N - I’m a great believer in using what you already have at your disposal to do the job if at all possible thus saving you money.
This demo you’re planning on is it going to consist mainly of speech?
If that’s the case then the Shure microphones I mentioned in my previous eMail will do the job nicely even for music and you already have the hardware to utilise these microphones in the form of your iPhone and Samsung.
Getting recordings you’ve made from your equipment is pretty easy.
Suppose you take the option of using the Shure microphones, you can use the Shure Mative App for recording and exporting to other formats or use the Twisted Wave apps I mentioned to do the complete job, your call.

Re: Portable digital recorders

Hamit Campos
 

No not any more. On the H5 and H4N Pro yes the built in or in the case of the 5 snap off mics are noisy. But the XLR mics are much quieter. Wow what a boyfriend you have. I'll leve my judging at that. But never the less if you have Aira now they could help you. See how that goes because if the lighting isn't too good with the phone camera people have trouble. I've spoken to Zoom about the screen lighting of the H6 at least. But anyways you just grab the peace and snapp it on to the front of the recordre. No I for 1 don't have a short cuts sheet. Neal Ewers had said he'd make 1 but who knows what happened to it. Re-order the H6 though if you wish. It's epic. Well depending on what you want to do the H5 maybe good enough though. I got the 6 for multi channal.

Are any of you using the Zoom recorders? I bought a 6, but I didn't have the Aira glasses at the time, and my boyfriend did not want to help me set it up so I sent it back. I've heard people like the Sony I forget which model but it's like 700 something. I hear some people say the Zoom mic preamps are noisy. If I bought it again, has anyone written any good shortcuts to learning the menus. I'm mostly worried though about assembling everything. It came with a mic stand holder to hold the recorder and also windscreens and mics and such. I didn't know what to do with what or how to tel lwhat was what? It's hard to hold my phereone to have people loo keven with the lanyard because it was like choking me.

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.

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: Portable digital recorders

Hello,

I was thinking about recording while on the boat. That product looks Ideal however, I can’t stand those in-ear things. It is very difficult to get the right tip to stay put and be not too uncomfortable.

Although the mics would need to be somewhere on or near my head as I am twisting and turning so the waterproofs would be rustling.

Thanks,

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.

Re: Portable digital recorders

Georgina, if you want to use a professional phantom-powered microphone like the cad with an ios device, you might look in to something like themCentrance micport pro 2,https://centrance.com/store/MicPort-Pro-2-Mobile-Recording-Interface-p129318859
This interface works with ios devices, macs, and pc's, and will supply 48-volt phantom power to your microphone. It also has a built-in rechargeable battery so it doesn't take any battery power from your iphone or android phone.

Re: Portable digital recorders

Hamit Campos
 

h the UK. Well then I'd call what ever music store you have arround you. I use Sweet water. By the way I just saw the message someone else sent about the ambeo smart head phones. Well really they are ear buds. They really do give almost a surround sound feel to stuff. I watch youtube I listen to Neal Ewers's podcasts and talk to the guys at Sweet Water. The F6 is pretty much like the F4 and the F8N that Dain and Andy have I'm so super duper jelus of those 2. lol Na homies it's all good. I do want to hear those with a Rode NT1-A mic though. But yeah Gena like Dain said with something connected you could get good recordings off your phone. It's another reason why I chose the H6. Because actually it's capable of being used with an IOS device. Yes the mode says IPad and indeed it maybe for an IPad but it works. Now I can use my youtube channal more. Just need more vid ideas.

The more suggestions you have then the better you will be informed regarding your buying decisions and investments, obviously whatever you buy you want to last.
I have a Zoom F8N recorder as its a machine that can handle every recording task I’m likely ever to take on whether those tasks be as simple as recording meetings or as complex as recording an entire jam session.
The same size doesn’t fit all however and we all have budgets that we come up against so - even though I have a Zoom F8N - I’m a great believer in using what you already have at your disposal to do the job if at all possible thus saving you money.
This demo you’re planning on is it going to consist mainly of speech?
If that’s the case then the Shure microphones I mentioned in my previous eMail will do the job nicely even for music and you already have the hardware to utilise these microphones in the form of your iPhone and Samsung.
Getting recordings you’ve made from your equipment is pretty easy.
Suppose you take the option of using the Shure microphones, you can use the Shure Mative App for recording and exporting to other formats or use the Twisted Wave apps I mentioned to do the complete job, your call.

Hi, Georgina.
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.

Thanks,
