Re: Sound Cloud

We have some historical audio material associated with our organizzation for
which I would like to find a home. However, it appeared to me that , like
dropbox, whenyou die and the money stops coming n that your recordings on
sound cloud also go away. Unless I can get confirmation that this is not
the case I am going to pass on sound cloud.

However, I have not found anything better yet.

Hi,

I'm considering an account with Sound Cloud given the increasing amount of
clips and samples that I'm capturing using various pieces of recording
equipment.

Up till now I've been using Dropbox though as the amount of clips increase
so does the struggle to keep things organised.

Has anyone used Sound Cloud before? Sound cloud seems to be the obvious
solution to my problem though there may be other solutions out there.

Software that Plays streaming 5.1 Surround Sound

Matthew Chao
 

Hi, Folks. Anyone know of a streaming media player that will accurately play streaming 5.1 surround sound content? Tried some YouTube demos of that, and I couldn't get my PC to play truly 5.1 surround sound, even though I have a 5.1 system, and can play movies and games and get the 5.1 surround sound effects. Thanks in advance for any info.--Matthew Chao

Yes Tom, you're doing it the way I would. With the control on the transmitter all the way up, set your sound card output just a bit less than distortion. That's probably all you can do. I don't know if there is an adjustment in the transmitter for deviation. If so, that might be the next thing to try.

Yes...using the volume control on the side of the transmitter. Now when you say " driving it harder from the soundcard" do you mean "turning up the system volume (or speaker volume?" Since the boom box that I keep in the kitchen has a considerable amount of volume (more than that little ole clock radio I keep in the bathroom) I can make it work! But if I'm in the bathroom and am using that clock radio to listen to while I'm in the shower, sometimes it's harder to hear it (and the volume control on the clock radio is as loud as it can go!

Are you using the volume control on the side of the transmitter; as

An interesting choice but perhaps a rather costly one.
You're going to have to buy 2 of these speakers if you want stereo sound and
that's probably fair enough from B&O's point of view as you'll get good
separation.
I'm still using my B&W T7 which I bought nearly 2 years ago.
I'm looking at the B&O review now.
The author complains that the B&O Bluetooth speker isn't watertight? Well I
don't give a damn about such things, I'm only interested in the audio
quality and not marketing gimmiks.
The B&O supports APTX which is great but not so important if you're planning
to use the device with a piece of Apple hardware and I truly wish this would
change.
The author of the review I'm reading makes a point of mentioning the looks
of the B&O speaker? Again that's something that doesn't worry me so long as
I get good sound and preferably good enough sound that makes my speaker
stand out from the pack which this speaker does it seems.
Before you rush out to buy one I do suggest that you look at some other
speakers such as the B&W T7 or the Keef Muo I think its called.
The B&W T7 is a stereo Bluetooth speaker with surprisingly good separation
and sound given the size of the device and as you already have a B&W system
you will pretty much have some idea of what the T7 sounds like.
The Muo has to be paired to get stereo sound.
Anyway just my thoughts.

Zoom F8n Recorder and Zoom F Control App

Dane Trethowan <grtdane@...>
 

Wonderful stuff.

Here's a Youtube clip showing how the F8 Controller App can be used with the
Zoom F8n.

The Zoom F8N is an excellent audio recorder that has been discussed on this
list for quite some time and hello to my fello user of the F8N and my
sympathy to those who can only dream about owning one of these fantastic
units at this time, don't worry chaps you'll get there eventually as I've
done.

Anyway back to the point of the controller App.

I'm making an assumption that the App will be at the very least parcially
accessible as most IOS Apps are these days so assuming I'm right? Well the
App at the very least will give us easy access to some of the menu system
which can be access through the front control panel of the recorder but you
do have to remember the menu layout.

Anyway we'll see as I have to yet install the Bluetooth add-on.

A bigger TV doesn't always mean that the sound will be better! The TV's are flat, and the enclosures are cramped and small.

A good sound bar with a sub woofer would be a nice addition for your set. It would help if you were able to turn off the internal speakers on the TV. If possible, use a toslink or SPDIF cable to hook up the sound bar. sometimes just hooking up a good set of computer or amplified speakers to the TV will go a long way to better sound.

If you do get a bigger TV, wall mounting can help with the acoustics of the set, but again the cabinet has to be thicker on the TV too.

Hi,
Recently I was making a recording with the Olympus ls-p4 and at about the hour and 20 minute mark the unit emitted two tones of varying pitches. My first thought was this was a low battery warning but the unit was still operational when I stopped the recording. and when I powered it off and back on it reported battery level middle which may or may not be accurate. I was just wondering if anyone had ever encountered these tones during recording and why they’d occur if battery wasn’t truly nearly dead?
It could be my perception but this unit seems to eat through battery life way faster than the Olympus ls-14.

Thanks in advance.

Re: Speakers

Thank you Dane for your explanation.  I think it's what I was looking for.  I think I'll stick to my old "pair of speakers" type of system.

The one good thing about all the Amazon speakers now is that they have line-out so you can use them with some other powered speakers, stereo Amplifier etc.
The newer generation of Amazon Echo speakers have something called Dolby 360 and I tend to think this is a marketing therm rather than actually meaning that the speaker is stereo.
It seems that - if you’re talking Smack Speakers - then you’re better to stick to the Smart Speaker brands themselves such as Amazon and Google.
I have a Google Home Mac smart speaker here which is supposed to be the best sounding speaker in the Google range and its not bad but it is not portable and certainly wouldn’t fit the requirements of the original author of this thread.
What I really like about the Google Home Max is its auto room tuning function.
In many cases multi room speakers system are back to where it all started - feeding both stereo channels into one speaker - so in order to get stereo you need “A Pair”.
There are multi room speakers that come as a stereo speaker such as the Denon Heos 7 and Heos 5 speakers.
The Denon Heos 3 and Heos 1 are speakers speakers which you can pair together and that actually has advantages.
You might just want to use one Denon Heos 3 speaker as a centre speaker for example.
Getting back to the Google Home Max speaker I mentioned earlier.
I’m considering getting another to make a pair.
When the Mac lays horizontally its a stereo speaker though separation isn’t all that good.
When the Max stands vertically it is a mono speaker and can be part of a pair if there are 2 Max speakers.
You can do similar things with amazon echo speakers.

Hi all,

I'm wondering about the speakers that folks are talking about these days: the blue tooth and the smart, etc. Are they one speaker or a box with two or more speakers in it? We went for more than 50 years needing a pair of speakers for stereo. Have we now gone back to listening to one speaker as if we have one ear? I would hate to think that all these multi-channel systems send their output to only one speaker.. I don't think my amazon echo dot plays stereo so when I use it for music, I hook it up to my stereo system.
