Hello Hamit,

Where do you get all of your information? What are the features of the F6?

BTW: I am in the UK.

Ah true that. Also don't forget you all the F6 will be out soon. Again Gena this is up to how much dough you want to spend and have. I have an H6 but would love 1 of the F recorders. Again that's just me because I want reality quality. i want movie studio audio. The H6 is great though and I do love it.

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.

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.

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.

Re: Portable digital recorders

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.

Re: Portable digital recorders

To those of you with this Zoom h6 do you have a list of the menu structure and how to get to things? I may re-order mine.

Re: Portable digital recorders

Eden
 

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.

Thanks for this and I do appreciate the memory problem.
My memory ain’t what it used to be either so I make a point of taking as many notes as I can and making reference cards.
Just the way I do things.

On 9 Jun 2019, at 1:37 am, Hamit Campos <hamitcampos@...> wrote:

Okay you are correct. In my case before mine I rung my hands about the menus because I know I'm spoiled by blindness devices. I don't wana get all political and judge people on this here list. But just shairing my own story. I knew how I am and that I can't remember things like neal. But again i know that this is because I always had things easy. So all this to say yes you can set the vultage turn trac 1 or where ever the mic feels more confortibal to you on and like you said on with the show. Now here's a thing though. As you like Curtus says have to dive threw menus to turn it on of off it's not so easy to turn it on or off like the LS-100. I say this because of battery. Phantum especially all 48 vults kills batteries. Now it's not battery slotter as Neal made it sound so you could leave the phantum on if it makes things easy. Also sample rate and bit depth matter for batteries too.

Hi,
I say this as a Zoom Recorder user which I am. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, too much emphasis is put on menu navigation when it comes to the Zoom recorders in my opinion.
Yes its true, various settings have to be made but as a rule once these settings are made then there is usually no need to want to change them.
Using fantom microphones as far as I know with the Zoom H6 is no problem, I do not own such microphones however I do know that the Zoom H6 supports such microphone types so all that would be necessary would be to set the recorder to power the microphones at the required voltage? Well as I said I’ve never used these microphones so if I’m missing something then someone can point me in the right direction I’m sure <smile>.
Once the Phantom microphone setting is made then its just a matter of connecting the microphones, switching the Zoom H6 on, arming the tracks, setting the levels, pressing the record button and on with the show.

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.

The Zoom would enable me to use the 2100 and be ready for any direction of growth I wish.

Thanks for the encouragement. I wondered when you make settings are they maintained each time you turn it on? Also when you change the batteries are the menu options held?

Re: Portable digital recorders

Okay you are correct. In my case before mine I rung my hands about the menus because I know I'm spoiled by blindness devices. I don't wana get all political and judge people on this here list. But just shairing my own story. I knew how I am and that I can't remember things like neal. But again i know that this is because I always had things easy. So all this to say yes you can set the vultage turn trac 1 or where ever the mic feels more confortibal to you on and like you said on with the show. Now here's a thing though. As you like Curtus says have to dive threw menus to turn it on of off it's not so easy to turn it on or off like the LS-100. I say this because of battery. Phantum especially all 48 vults kills batteries. Now it's not battery slotter as Neal made it sound so you could leave the phantum on if it makes things easy. Also sample rate and bit depth matter for batteries too.

Yes its true, various settings have to be made but as a rule once these settings are made then there is usually no need to want to change them.
Using fantom microphones as far as I know with the Zoom H6 is no problem, I do not own such microphones however I do know that the Zoom H6 supports such microphone types so all that would be necessary would be to set the recorder to power the microphones at the required voltage? Well as I said I’ve never used these microphones so if I’m missing something then someone can point me in the right direction I’m sure <smile>.
Once the Phantom microphone setting is made then its just a matter of connecting the microphones, switching the Zoom H6 on, arming the tracks, setting the levels, pressing the record button and on with the show.

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.

I know with the iPhone I use a very nice recording tool called Twisted Wave or the free TW Recorder.

Re: Portable digital recorders

Dane Trethowan <grtdane@...>
 

The great thing about the menu systems for the H6 and F8n recorders is that the menu structure doesn’t wrap so notes can be taken on the menu options and because the menu system doesn’t wrap you will always know where you are.

Re: Portable digital recorders

Hamit Campos
 

Depends on which peace you get. But yes Gena it's true you could get something to hook to the phone. Just know though it's something else dangling off the phone. I really liked the IRig Pro Duo. But they do make an Audio interface with 1 XLR I just forget what it's called. Point being that yes the phone in of itself ain't pro. But with pro gear you can make it pro. I've used my H6 with my Iphone and made a short video clip using my 8022 phantum powered. It sounded as pro as the H6 itself. So now people are bringing up the phone are you going to be walking arround with this set up? Because again it's just more cables in the way and more stuff dangleing. I don't mind cause I'm a geek that way. I want movie audio quality audio. So it's 1 of those if I must than I must things to me. I don't know about you though. Ah there's also the fact of off loading stuff to something else. Do you use drop box or something? But yes there are ways to make the phone sound pro. Where are you Gena? I f here in the good old US of A why not give sweet water sound a call. Check out www.sweetwater.com. They can help.

The Plextalk manual suggests that I visit Shoutcast and download individual .pls files. Can't find what I want on this site. Are there any other sites from which I can get these files?

For the times I've changed stuff yes. Every thing is held. The only trouble is the phantum. Again   it's just that it's best to shut it off if you aren't using it. With the Zooms not talking it's hard to do. Again are you good at remembering menus? I'm not so don't go buy my experience.

I have got my focus on a AT-2035 but I need to be careful how much I am spending. But father Christmas might bring me a Cad E-100S. I am only looking at cardioid pattern at the moment. The Zoom would enable me to use the 2100 and be ready for any direction of growth I wish.

Thanks for the encouragement. I wondered when you make settings are they maintained each time you turn it on? Also when you change the batteries are the menu options held?

Thanks,

What kinda condencer do you have? I bought the H6 for the same reason. I have an Audio-Technica AT-8022 stereo mic. Comprized of 2 modded AT-4021s.

Hello All,

I wondered if anyone was using a good portable digital recorder? I like the idea of the Zoom H5 or 6 but I see that it is necessary to navigate menus. So I guess it’s not an option for me.

I require an XLR and phantom power for my mic. What are the experiences of others?

Thanks,

Ah yes Gena. Another thing I was gonna say you forgot 1. If it's just 1 condencer you may just need a Zoom H4N Pro. Again I know it's annoying to need eyes for the screen. I remind Zoom every chance I get. Also you must remember if you do pause recording that you did that because it won't beep at you. So my best suggestion since you I think said are using a condencer and need phantum is to get even on Amazon an LS-100 of Olympus. Shame on them for discontinuing it. But this will be easyer. It talks like most Olympus recorders but for the time and date settings so get someone to set that once and forget it. The phantum like on Tascam recorders and Marantz ones is on switches. So you can shut it off or activate it on the fly unlike the zooms. The vultage you can set in the menus. I would have gotten it but for 1 it's discontinued and 2 I want to actually record in surround sound. The H6 can do just that. This is because you can hook up 6 mics to it. Yes mics 5 and 6 need externl power because the EX H6 peace doesn't spit phantum but oh wells like my nephew Jonathan says.

Hi Gena,

What do you plan to do with this stuff? You might not need a digital recorder.
