Thanks for some interesting observations of the recorder.
Starting and stopping? I had never given any thought to that and interesting to hear your perspective, I just press “Record” and when I’m finished I just press “Stop without monitoring with headphones, the way I’ve always done things for 40 years with Cassette Recorders <smile> but seriously yes, I do agree that the beep signals through the headphones are dead handy along with the excellent headphone amplifier the F6 and F8N recorders both have.
I’m not a fan of built-in speakers for recorders of this type and that’s probably because they usually sound so bad you wonder why the manufacturer bother with them anyway so a good headphone amp coupled with your favourite headphones seems to be a great compromise for a professional recorder.
There’s a lot I need to learn about this recorder too I can assure you.
Thanks for your mention of the microphones and I see you like recording bird calls as well.
I have a backyard full of quite a few different birds which I’ve captured over time.
On a different subject I recently purchased a Blue Yeti Pro, what a wonderful little microphone that is.

Hi all,

I have had the F6 for a couple of months and have really enjoyed trying out some of its features.
It's very easy to link two tracks for stereo recording, but only if you have the iOS app.
Without the app, the recorder is quite inaccessible.
I use a Wildtronics amplified parabolic system for recording birds. It has a set of stereo mics in it, along with a focal mic. It's nice to be able to record with all three mics simultaneously.
There's a lot I don't understand about the recorder. For example, each channel can be panned anywhere from full right to full left. Is that for making wide-angle stereo recordings? I don't know. The default for each track is Center, so that's where I leave it.
The F6 has no built-in speaker, so you have to either use the app to start and stop recording or listen with headphones to hear the record beep when you press the record button on the device. Some people are probably asking why would you ever record without monitoring with headphones? Good questions.

I look forward to trying out the auto-mix feature some day when I can be in a face to face meeting room with lots of people again.

Subject: [all-audio] Zoom F6 Recorder

Hi.
Apologies if the subject line was referring to the wrong recorder unit, the recorder we’re discussing here is the Zoom F6 and not the Zoom H6 which are 2 completely different recorders.
Yes, I have a Zoom F6 and Yes, I have read other reviews and opinions on this recorder.
Like every Zoom or every other recorder the Zoom F6 to me has its advantages and disadvantages over some of the other Zoom recorders I have here - actually I have quite a collection of the brutes - but all-in-all my favourite Zoom recorder is still the Zoom F8n for far too many reasons to enumerate here and even the H6 still punches above its own weight in a lot of areas so I guess people are going to have to do a little more homework before you but.
Don’t just take notice of reviews and information that dished out to you and don’t be afraid to ask questions of those who have these recorders so we may arm you with the facts and the knowledge before you go out and invest your hard money in one of these recorders.
Whatever the recorder there is a little learning kerb to be had.
Some recorders have a better layout than others, this can make a real difference in operation.
Okay so I’ve not done all that much work with the F6 yet and have only had the machine for a few weeks so some notes to begin with through observations I’ve made.
The menu system wraps around on the F6 where on the F8N the menu system has fixed starting and ending points.
The menu navigation is performed by small buttons not much bigger than match heads, not my ideal way of doing things but there we are, I much prefer the jog-dial of the F8N or even the spring rocker of the H6 or H2n.
32-bit floating point is an exciting development and the main reason why I bought the recorder but think carefully before you go out and spend your money.
Digital Recorders do have quite a bit of head room but like everything else they have there limitations so unless you really know that you’re going to be recording sounds from extreme soft to extreme loud then you might look at another recorder.
The absence of 6.25MM jacks is a bit annoying but not the end of the world of course, I guess it’s something that I’m used to.
And now for the real cruncher to be aware of if you’re thinking of using the Zoom F6 with an IOS device.
Yes this can be done and is aptly demonstrated on Mosen At Large but By Gee, it takes a bit of organisation to do and then you have to reconnect the Bluetooth and the iPhone every time you wish to start a session, sorry chums but that’s just not acceptable in my view when the Zoom F8n will connect via Bluetooth right out of the box if you have the latest firmware update installed.
Accessibility for the IOS App is about the same so if you’ve heard the Zoom F6 demo then you can pretty much sum up the F8N’s functionality with the F8 Controller App.
I’m yet to try one of the optional mixing surfaces available and I don’t know whether they consist of a touch screen or buttons, faders etc so perhaps someone can enlighten me here.
Think that’s all for the moment <smile>

Hello Georgina

Yes, it's connected via XLR and the gain is set. I'm hearing everything just fine in my headphones. I have four individual mike channels to choose from and I have tried each one in turn.

I'll let you know should I have any joy.

Thank you once again for your suggestions.

Hello Philip,

I guess you know far more than I. However, I will suggest. The microphone? Are you feeding it fantom if it is needed? Is it a nice quiet NB-7B? If it is one of those combo XLR / 1/4 jack sockets there may be a gain switch. You should be able to get it's manual online. The Behringer I had the manual was available.

Good luck,

Hello,

I don't know that mixer but it sounds like an audio routing problem.
You clearly have the USB part of the mixer installed and now the
microphone output needs to be routed to the master track. I know how
this would be done in Reaper but I have not used Gold Wave. I suspect
that the mixer only uses one channel to Windows. Therefore, there must
be a switch on the console to route the microphone's output to USB.

The hardware is working since I am able to hear my voice through my

I am also able to playback sound files in Goldwave through my
Behringer mixer.



Volume levels in both goldwave and windows are set to maximum until I

Under "Device Tab" in Goldwave, playback and record are both
utilising USB Audio Codek, the sound driver recommended for my Behringer.

Under Microphone, the quality is set to 44100hz /32 / shared.



In windows privacy settings, both Goldwave and microphone are enabled
with assigned permissions respectively.



If anyone has any solutions, please share.



Thank you in anticipation.

Re: Help Needed for Behringer Audio Mixer x1622 USB & Recording With Goldwave

Philip Francis Anderson
 

Thank you, Georgina. I know the button you are talking about. Yes, it's
depressed. Upon running a test, it is saying my microphone levels within
Goldwave are too low. However, even when I increase them to maximum,
playback still returns silence. This said, when I switch from USB Audio
Codek within GW's Device Tab to USB Codek Looped back Speakers, Goldwave
will allow me to record and playback sounds captured via my computer.

It is possible there's another button on the Behringer which I need to
activate, or another setting within GW I've overlooked.

Thing is, I'm knew to this particular brand of mixer. I use to own quite a
snazzy Alan Heath Mixer in the past, but the one I wanted and was familiar
with, was just a tad outside my current budget. Had I still been working in
radio, then I could have justified the £1,000 capital outlay. It just so
happened I managed to purchase this Behringer XENYX 12 channel X1622 USB for
under £200.00 brand new from Bax Music. Quite a bargain I thought, till this
problem with the microphone occurred. I'm sure I'll conquer the little beast
in time. Just a matter of patience.

Hello,

I don't know that mixer but it sounds like an audio routing problem. You
clearly have the USB part of the mixer installed and now the microphone
output needs to be routed to the master track. I know how this would be done
in Reaper but I have not used Gold Wave. I suspect that the mixer only uses
one channel to Windows. Therefore, there must be a switch on the console to
route the microphone's output to USB.

Zoom H6 Recorder

Dane Trethowan <grtdane@...>
 

Hi.
Was wondering if anyone on list had a Zoom f6 recorder and if so what do you think?
I still have my Zoom F8N and H6 recorders and I have to admit there are in my opinion a few things that put the F8N and H6 recorders respectively above the Zoom F6, the main being layout of menus and controls.
I’m not at all knocking the F6 as its a beaut little compact recorder with heaps of punch but like everything else the F6 has its flaws so buy carefully if you’re looking at one of these recorders.

Question Concerning JBL Flip 4 Speaker And Battery Life

Tom Kaufman
 

Hello list: Nearly two years ago, I bought a JBL Flip 4 speaker; is a
good-sounding speaker for its size and have used it a lot here of late!
When I first became aware of this speaker, I had heard that it would give up
to 12 hours of battery life! However, am finding now that it doesn't give
that much! The bad thing is that it gives no verbal warning when the
battery is getting low! Fortunately for me, I have enough vision that I can
see a red light blinking when the battery is starting to get near where the
speaker will shut off! My question is, can these batteries be replaced? Or
is it as I am suspecting: that thing is designed in such a way that there is
absolutely NO WAY to open it up and replace the battery? I have often just
run it with the speaker plugged into electric; could this caused it to lose
its battery life? Thanks for any info you may be able to provide!

Tom,

Agreed completely. I had a sudden increase perhaps a month ago in the
interference I am getting on the AM band from my DSL service. The phone
company must have changed something either with the phone lines outside or
with the DSL settings. While I know there is always DSl interference along
the wires carrying the DSL signal, it is also getting radiated from the AC
lines as well. I can't figure out how it is getting into those circuits.

I have a tuner with one of those little square loops and I made a larger
loop on a piece of cardboard and added a length of cable so I could move it
around more. That really helped me escape some interference until this new
DSL problem started. I still like to look for long distance AM reception
especially during the winter evenings, and this interference really
decreases my ability to do that.

Best regards,

Steve Jacobson

Georgina,

If I take my cordless phone and put it near an AM radio, I find that it
generates a good bit of digital noise across the entire AM band, but there
are oscillations that occur here and there that are stronger than the
general noise. I would guess that on his system, one of those stronger
oscillations happens to hit WBBM. Unfortunately, it is all a bunch of
guesswork on my part and there is a lot we don't know about his system. I
might be totally wrong. I am struggling with a problem with noise and
interference on the AM band in my house which is very hard to track down, so
there might be something more to this problem as well.

Hello Steve,
URRRRR, shows you how long since I listened and took note of the AM band.
Whoops. At least someone is there to put me right. Found it interesting that
other radio stations perhaps not on AM did not suffer in the same way.

Since the radio station is 780 KHZ, it is likely that the interference
is
not caused by the frequency used by the phone, but that it is getting
interference from the digital circuits in the phone. Usually this happens
if your radio is close to the answering system or that you have placed the
wireless headphones near your radio. If neither is the case, check to see
if the cords running to the answer machine might be passing close to your
radio. Gina is right that an external antenna probably would correct this,
but moving the answering machine or making sure your headphones are not near
the radio should help. If you keep your headphones in a charger when they
are not being used, check to be sure the cord to the charger does not run
close to the radio. Making sure the radio is plugged into a different
outlet from the answering machine or any headphone chargers might be worth
trying as well. If your radio has a separate square loop antenna, moving
that around can make a big difference as well.

I live in Minnesota but listen to WBBM occasionally, and I have heard
them
announce that they are also on FM on 105.9. You might be able to avoid this
by trying the FM frequency instead. I do not know if the coverage of the FM
frequency reaches you, though, but it might be worth checking.

where to turn??

transmissions seem to have a potentially long range, but are easily wrecked
by the kind of noise caused by everything around the urban landscape. I can
only imagine how much worse it is now with all the domestic devices in one's
home that emit radio signals.

Steve and list: Well a time was that I could actually listen to WSM (from
Nashville, Tennessee) on that stereo; but no more as my modem pretty much
wipes that out as the interference is strong toward that end of the AM band!
I examined that loop thing and found that I cannot even find where the other
end of that "chain" thing that it is connected to ends as it goes underneath
of the next shelf of my entertainment system! As I stated in my earlier
message, I can turn that little square loop thing, but as soon as I let go
of it, it'll just flip back to where it was! Besides, I can listen to most
of those far-away stations easily enough on either my Amazon devices or on
the computer these days!

Tom,

Agreed completely. I had a sudden increase perhaps a month ago in the
interference I am getting on the AM band from my DSL service. The phone
company must have changed something either with the phone lines outside or
with the DSL settings. While I know there is always DSl interference along
the wires carrying the DSL signal, it is also getting radiated from the AC
lines as well. I can't figure out how it is getting into those circuits.

I have a tuner with one of those little square loops and I made a larger
loop on a piece of cardboard and added a length of cable so I could move it
around more. That really helped me escape some interference until this new
DSL problem started. I still like to look for long distance AM reception
especially during the winter evenings, and this interference really
decreases my ability to do that.

Best regards,

Steve Jacobson

Georgina,

If I take my cordless phone and put it near an AM radio, I find that it
generates a good bit of digital noise across the entire AM band, but there
are oscillations that occur here and there that are stronger than the
general noise. I would guess that on his system, one of those stronger
oscillations happens to hit WBBM. Unfortunately, it is all a bunch of
guesswork on my part and there is a lot we don't know about his system. I
might be totally wrong. I am struggling with a problem with noise and
interference on the AM band in my house which is very hard to track down, so
there might be something more to this problem as well.

Best regards,

Steve Jacobson

Hello Steve,
URRRRR, shows you how long since I listened and took note of the AM band.
Whoops. At least someone is there to put me right. Found it interesting that
other radio stations perhaps not on AM did not suffer in the same way.

Since the radio station is 780 KHZ, it is likely that the interference
is
not caused by the frequency used by the phone, but that it is getting
interference from the digital circuits in the phone. Usually this happens
if your radio is close to the answering system or that you have placed the
wireless headphones near your radio. If neither is the case, check to see
if the cords running to the answer machine might be passing close to your
radio. Gina is right that an external antenna probably would correct this,
but moving the answering machine or making sure your headphones are not near
the radio should help. If you keep your headphones in a charger when they
are not being used, check to be sure the cord to the charger does not run
close to the radio. Making sure the radio is plugged into a different
outlet from the answering machine or any headphone chargers might be worth
trying as well. If your radio has a separate square loop antenna, moving
that around can make a big difference as well.

I live in Minnesota but listen to WBBM occasionally, and I have heard
them
announce that they are also on FM on 105.9. You might be able to avoid this
by trying the FM frequency instead. I do not know if the coverage of the FM
frequency reaches you, though, but it might be worth checking.

Best regards,

Evening all.

This is a audio related question, but has to do with a certain radio
station and a wireless cell phone.


I live North of Chicago Il. and listen to a ceertain powerful all
news
station on AM (WBBM 780). We have a phone answering system with 3 wireless
headsets.

If If I am listening to the Chicago station and the phone starts
ringing,
usually for the wife, a loud whisteling noise happens and stays there till
the call is finished. This only happens on this one station . I have tried
unplugging radio, the phone system, but no change. If I change the radio
station to another, all is well. I have tried moving the direction of radio,
it is a digital one, with nothing any different.

I am really sorry to ask this group about my issue, but it is audio
related. If not for this group, can someone , maybe, give me direction on
where to turn??

Thanks,

Morey Worthington
