[all-audio] Another audio editor for the Mac

2019-04-16 Thread Dane Trethowan
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.

[all-audio] FM Transmitter

2019-04-10 Thread Dane Trethowan
Hi,
Since we’re discussing FM Transmitter problems I thought I’d take the time to 
look up reviews of the now legendary C.Crane FM Transmitter II.
What I’ve read in the review linked to below sounds impressive to the point 
that I will most certainly buy one when I get the chance, the transmitter will 
go very well with the audio processor I have here which makes my Internet Audio 
sound very much like Kearth 101 etc.
Even though I don’t specifically need a FM transmitter as I much prefer 
streaming around my house the C.Crane unit will be something nice to conduct 
experiments with.
For example I know that I have heaps of interference on the FM band generated 
from not only within my own house but from surrounding areas so I’m curious to 
know how a FM transmitter would cope with this.
Like in the US, there aren’t too many vacant spots on the FM band for clear 
transmission in Australia - or at least the region I’m residing in - so how 
well will the C.Crane II transmitter cope with all that? All to be revealed I 
dare say 
The link to the review of the C.Crane FM Transmitter II is below.

[all-audio] Ring doorbell Video 2 impressions

2019-03-27 Thread Dane Trethowan
Hi Everyone,
I’ve had the Ring Video Doorbell 2 for a week now so thought I’d write down my 
impressions of the product.
Before that I had a Doorbell which I built around a Raspberry Pi machine 
however the machine packed up so I had to get something quickly.
I looked for Raspberry Pi Doorbell projects to build and boy has the landscape 
changed since I built mine back in 2013, if you go to Youtube and look for 
Raspberry Pi Doorbell you’ll soon see what I mean so plenty for me to choose 
from and to think about.
The Raspberry Pi I was using was of a considerable age and there have been 
several generations of Raspberry Pi since, I think we’re now up to the Third 
Generation? Anyway the newer Pi machines are far more powerful than the one I 
was using and offer far more flexible connectivity options but one thing at a 
time and back to the Ring Doorbell Video 2
The idea of the Ring Doorbell is to have the unit installed at a location while 
you use your Smart Phone to interact with the doorbell. My Ring Doorbell is 
installed at the front door.
If you have the old trusty electro mechanical type doorbell already installed 
then you can choose to have it work in parallel with the Ring Doorbell.
In my case I needed a sparky to come and give me a hand with my installation 
but if its just a case of sticking the Ring Doorbell on a wall then you should 
be able to perform the whole  installation job yourself.
Depending on the type of\The Ring Doorbell has several power options and the 
one you choose will depend on your installation requirements. I already have a 
mains supply installed for my doorbell requirements so the ring Doorbell can 
take advantage of that.
If you’re just going to stick the doorbell on a wall then you can use the 
supplied rechargeable battery which clips into the bottom of the Doorbell unit.
Connecting the Ring Doorbell to your network may take a little time and can be 
a little tricky so be sure to follow the prompts in the Ring App and be sure to 
create your account at http://www.ring.com  which I 
suggest you do before you stat the setup process.
Its during the setup process that I started encountering disappointments with 
the Ring product.
Firstly the Ring Doorbell Video 2 will only connect to 2.4GHZ networks and the 
unit doesn’t have a LAN port which is odd given the Doorbell will be mounted 
most likely in most homes in a fixed position.
The Setup procedure in the Ring App was quite easy to follow and I have 
everything connected in around 10 minutes along with having completed tests to 
ensure that the doorbell was functioning as required.
Ring sends you a couple of optional eMails containing tips and so on which are 
worth reading.
The settings panels in the Ring App seem perfectly accessible.
So now to actually trying the Ring Doorbell out with my mobile phones and here 
I started to get annoyed.
When the Ring Doorbell detects motion or the button is pushed to ring the 
Doorbell a notification is sent to your phone.
In order to interact with the person at your door you have to interact with the 
notification on your phone so that means that you not only have to unlock your 
phone - if it is locked - but enter your Fingerprint or facial ID before you 
can even interact then with the Ring Screen.
The Screen contains several buttons including an “Accept” button which you can 
double-tap to start viewing video form your doorbell or speak to the person at 
your front door.
And here’s another thing to be wary of, the orientation of your phone is 
changed to landscape regardless of your orientation preference so you may need 
to change your method when you try to navigate the Ring App screen whilst 
interacting with the Doorbell.
The interactivity can be ended by double-tapping on the “End” button in the 
Ring App.
There is an easier way with which to interact with the Ring Doorbell by the use 
of an Echo Show or Echo Spot device and your voice.
You Suppose the Doorbell rings you can say to Echo Show, “Alexa View Front 
Door” where upon the Doorbell will be activated and you can start interacting 
with the person at your Front door.
The video is displayed on the Echo Show or Spot screen and you can talk to the 
person at your front door using hands free on the Echo Show or Spot device.
Note that the Ring Doorbell Video 2 cannot work with an Echo or Echo dot device 
which is a shame. Okay the Dot etc aren’t capable of receiving video but they 
do receive audio and the quality of audio the Echo Dot 3rd Generation and Echo 
put out is very reasonable.
As for the audio quality of the Ring Doorbell itself? Well I can describe it 
best as very average but certainly not too bad. I would have liked to see a 
control for volume of audio on the Doorbell itself. In most situations this 
should be loud enough for the person at the front door to hear but certainly 
not in reasonably noisy environments, say near a road with a lot of traffic 
running up and down.

[all-audio] Curious

2019-03-20 Thread Dane Trethowan
Hi,

I have a question for the list.

With the advent of such services as Kindle and Audible along with quite a
few others do list members think that Daisy will die or will their even be a
need for Daisy in the not to distant future.

With my Echo Show paired to my Braille Display I now read a huge amount of
content from Kindle though I can have the Show read this out using the
built-in TTS.

I'm also a great fan of Audible, I've had an Audbile account for years but
haven't used it very much until recently.

Again the Echo Show will handle Audible quite nicely though I do tend to
listen to Audible content through my Samsung phone which has incredibly good
sound particularly for spoken workd material or perhaps Audible is doing a
little optimisation somewhere in the audio chain .

I don't have a particular view on the question I asked above, I'm just
curious as to what other viewpoints are on this topic.

Hi there,
List members who use Mac machines and who want to get into Podcasting may find 
the link below to various tutorials on the subject from the blog post most 
helpful.
I use 1 of the products discussed here and in my view Audio Hijack is the best 
audio capturing/recording tool out there.
Anyway take a read of the Under The Microscope Blog Post and a look at the

Re: [all-audio] memory error when loading tracks in soundforge11?

2019-03-18 Thread Dane Trethowan
I wonder what the hell is going on here as this problem has been extensively 
discussed on list in the not to distant past as I myself was involved in the 
discussion and published a tutorial on how to fix this problem.
The original author of the thread might think about searching the list archives 
or better still going to Google where this topic is addressed in a full 
tutorial, in fact I posted it here.
I won’t go over it all again, not because I want to be nasty but because my 
post was fairly old now but will make a few crucial points.
Firstly the problems yexperienced are pretty much down to the absence of 
Windows Framework which was common in Windows versions before 10.
Since Windows 10 has arrived Microsoft have been gradually fazing Windows 
Framework out thus software developers who relied on the framework being 
present have been rewriting their software hence the release of Magix Sound 
Fort 12 Pro and 13 Audio Studio for Windows.
You can battle on with Sound Forge Pro 11 if you like and try to reinstall 
Windows Framework as I did quite some time ago.
The better way to go in my view is to call Sound Forge 11 a Dead Loss and 
upgrade to 12 where you’ll immediately notice a difference in faster loading 
and processing times for your audio projects etc.
I bought the software on special for $199 so take a look at the Magix web site 
and see if they have any offers for upgrading.

[all-audio] Samsung Galaxy S10

2019-03-17 Thread Dane Trethowan
Opportunity knocked so I answered and should have this very soon.
I’m looking forward to the audio side of things with this device and to see if 
Samsung have made any improvements in the quality of the internal speakers.
I have been using Samsung phones regularly since the Samsung Note4.
I then upgraded to a S6, skipped the S7, upgraded to a S8 and I’m using the S9 
now.
With every upgraded Samsung have leapt forward in huge bounds with regards to 
the internal speakers of the Galaxy devices, even the Samsung Galaxy S3 all 
those years ago would give a lot of phones available now a good run for their 
money the it comes to sound from the internal speakers.
The Samsung Galaxy S9 was the first Galaxy phone I am aware of to offer stereo 
internal speakers which seem to be pretty standard on most premium phones these 
days.
The Sony xPeria X-Performance phone I owned before getting the Samsung S9 
certainly had stereo speakers with a great sound to boot.
I still use IOS as well and have been using an iPhone 8 for the last 6 months, 
a huge improvement on sound quality from the iPhone 6s I had been using.
Anyway I’ll let the list know what I find.
Perhaps others have the S10 or have heard it?

Re: [all-audio] getting the key into Sound Forge 12

2019-03-16 Thread Dane Trethowan
I haven’t piped up until now.
I did enter the serial number into my SF 12 Pro product though it did take me a 
little time.
I don’t remember exactly what I did and should have taken notes as I’ll most 
likely have to do it all again in the not to distant future.
I’m sure I had to manually enter the code rather than copying and pasting thus 
I had 2 Apps open at the same time, the web browser with my SF Product Support 
page open at the serial number and SF itself so I toggled the two to get 
information from one to the other, copying and pasting just didn’t work.
Anyway despite that hard work and annoyance I think the upgrade is well worth 
the money.
SF 12 Studio runs a lot faster than did 11 and with no errors, incredibly 
efficient in background tasks too which is more than can be said for previous 
versions of SF.
Up until SF 12 only SF For Mac was as stable so the rewrite of the Windows 
version was well worth it I reckon.

[all-audio] Apple TV

2019-03-14 Thread Dane Trethowan
Hi,
I received my new Apple TV on Tuesday so I won’t go on about it since the topic 
has been covered extensively on list as is.
One function I use a lot is the Bluetooth connectivity whether I’m connecting 
to a Bluetooth Keyboard, Braille Display or Audio device.
The latter of the 3 devices is interesting as it means you can use the 
bluetooth Headset or Speaker of your choice for audio output thus illuminating 
the need for any HDMI conversion adapters or even the purchase of a 
Surround-Sound receiver.
I have a Surround-Sound unit in my Entertainment room however the use of my B 
T7 as an audio output device is no doubt convenient.
Unfortunately I wasn’t able to access the Plex App and that leaves me a little 
disappointed however there may be other ways around that.
All the “Catch-Up” Free-To-Air Apps seem perfectly useable which is a huge 
plus. I have other Set Top Box units under the Android System and the Apps are 
Bitter Sweet there, some are easy to use whilst others are not.
Siri seems to work as well as I had hoped.
I hope that Apple consider building support into the Apple TV for hearing 
devices such as hearing instruments etc as Apple have done with IOS devices and 
if Apple do that then the Apple TV is an excellent piece of equipment which is 
just about as perfect as one can get.

[all-audio] More samples of audio

2019-03-13 Thread Dane Trethowan
This one is captured from my Denon Heos 7 HS2 on the Olympus LS-14 recorder 
from Tidal Music, the Music Service you subscribe to if you want superb audio 
quality and I don’t think there would be too much who would deny that the 
sample captured here is pretty good.
The recording is better than the few copies I have on CD are by miles and I’d 
love to know if such a good recording is available anywhere.
I’m sure you know the track, , I started recording near the middle so I went 
back to the start of the track at the end so you’ll hear the whole thing.
Anyway enjoy and thanks for your feedback.

Re: [all-audio] When Doves Coo

2019-03-11 Thread Dane Trethowan
I used the internal microphones of the recorder covered with a Gutman 
Windscreen.
My only small complaint with the S-14 is the small amount of hiss you get in 
your recordings so the LS-P4 is the better recorder in that regard.

I used the Olympus LS-14 this time.
I have made previous recordings of them with the LS-P4 which also came out very 
well.
This morning was a little unusual here in that things were a lot quieter than 
they usually are around here given that we have a Labour Day Public Holiday 
today though you wouldn’t know it now.
Its the afternoon as I type and traffic is back to its usual noisy self, 
perhaps a little more noisy than it normally would be.

[all-audio] Amazon Echo Show Second Generation

2019-03-09 Thread Dane Trethowan
Hi,
I ordered one of these devices, the plan is to set the Echo Show in the centre 
of my kitchen table for the benefit of guests - who may be able to see the 
screen for time and weather etc - as well as myself.
I found a page regarding accessibility for the Amazon Echo Show Second 
Generation at 
https://www.amazon.com/gp/help/customer/display.html?nodeId=202158200 which is 
an interesting read, I didn’t know that the Echo Show Second Generation had 
amazon’s VoiceView Screen Reader as part of the bundle for example.
So this brings up the 40 million dollar question doesn’t it.
Just how much of Android will VoiceView allow me to access through the Echo 
Show and what sort of Apps will I be able to install and how accessible will 
they be? I guess only time will tell.
I should have my Amazon Echo Show Second Generation later this week.
Perhaps other list members have experience in using one of these devices.

Re: [all-audio] Sound Cloud

2019-03-07 Thread Dane Trethowan
I’m eying Soundcloud myself but I probably won’t bother with it as I already 
have a Dropbox plan that gives me 2TB of space and with the “Smartsync” 
functionality I can choose what to have available locally.
This means that - if I should choose to make content only available online - I 
see the files in the file list but they’re not actually stored on the device 
I’m accessing at the time.
So what are your plans for your historical data? It might be cheaper to set up 
a small server rather than use the cloud if you’re planning to share your clips 
etc with the public.

[all-audio] Zoom F8n Recorder and Zoom F Control App

2019-03-01 Thread Dane Trethowan
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

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.

Re: [all-audio] Question about Olympus LS-p4 tones?

2019-02-28 Thread Dane Trethowan
Thanks for raising this as I’ve heard the same thing.
I think those two tones mean that a new file is being created, some audio file 
formats do have a limit in size.

Re: [all-audio] Speakers

2019-02-28 Thread Dane Trethowan
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.

[all-audio] Sound Cloud

2019-02-28 Thread Dane Trethowan
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.

Re: [all-audio] B play a1 portable bluetooth speaker

2019-02-28 Thread Dane Trethowan
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's point of view as you'll get good
separation.
I'm still using my B T7 which I bought nearly 2 years ago.
I'm looking at the B review now.
The author complains that the B 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 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 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 T7 or the Keef Muo I think its called.
The B 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 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.

A couple of years ago, Dane had provided instructions for the C C 2 E radio
to peak reception on the a.m. band, presumably by matching the antenna.
Unfortunately, I have lost those instructions and hope that Dane would
kindly repost them.

This was a procedure which scanned the entire a.m. band and took a good five
minutes to perform.

Thanks for any feedback.

[all-audio] Just purchased Radioboss Broadcasting and automation software

2019-02-27 Thread Dane Trethowan
Subject line says it all.

Fort those in Australia the total cost is $335 for the Advanced version
which includes GST.

If you're buying in the US the total cost is $235 for the Advanced version
of Radioboss, such is the value of the Australian dollar these days.

I've been trialing Radiobos and discovering many of the features/functions
this package has to offer.

I'm absolutely thrilled with the flexibility on offer in the Radioboss
package along with accessibility.

I've had to relabel a few edit boxes and so on but nothing more than that.

Go to http://radioboss.com and take the product for a spin yourself.

The help section in the App is very detailed. If that's not enough then you
can use google to hunt up extra information from the Radioboss web site and
other forums.

Highly Recommended.

Re: [all-audio] ABC Radio Waggin on CC 2E radio

2019-02-26 Thread Dane Trethowan
Hi again,
As a Postscript to my original reply.
You spoke of the low level of interference?
Well actually there were more than half a dozen computers and God only knows 
what else powered up and working at the time so receiving that signal as well 
as I did was quite astounding.
I had to navigate the radio at a particular angle and put the radio in a 
particular place in my home.
I used a 5 meter (15 feet ) cable between the line-out of the CC 2E radio and 
the Olympus LS-14 Line input so I could put the recorder at plenty of distance 
from the radio thereby hopefully illuminating another source of interference.
The lead I used seems to be well shielded which helped a great deal.

Re: [all-audio] ABC Radio Waggin on CC 2E radio

2019-02-26 Thread Dane Trethowan
Hi,
The station received in Waggin is a 50KW station and is I think the most 
powerful transmitting on the 558KHZ frequency in Australia.
Commercial stations here transmit anywhere between 2000 and 1 watts whilst 
the ABC usually use 5 watt transmitters.
ABC Waggin came in well early this morning as we have heard and it very rarely 
comes in that well because of the other trash on the 558KHZ frequency, I had to 
be careful to orientate the radio in just the right way.
A testament I think to Bob Crane and the design of the CC 2E radio which - in 
my opinion - is worth every dollar not only for the sensitivity and selectivity 
of the receiving circuit but the build quality and excellent audio 
characteristics.

Well here's a link that tells you what the Denon Heos 7 is and how it stacks up.
The review could be a little more detailed I think but then again reviews have 
to be easily read and understood.
The price is interesting. I paid $750 for mine back in June last year I think 
it was so I've been enjoying the Heos 7 for quite some time.
Anyway here's the review at

It had better be for $600, which is what Amazon wants for one.

The Denon Heos Speaker isn’t bad for what it is, cheaper than a Sonos Play 7 
and - according to many reviews - sounding better and certainly able to handle 
more audio formats.

Re: [all-audio] Sample of the Denon Heos 7 HS2 Powered Network Speaker

2019-02-23 Thread Dane Trethowan
That could be for a number of reasons.
Firstly I’m wasn’t exact with the position of the microphone as this was just a 
sample.
Secondly the centre microphone of the recorder was active which does tend to 
over emphasise the bass a little bit and I deliberately did this to pick up the 
sub-woofer in the unit.
So in short I suppose I best add some details.
The Heos 7 HS2 itself has 5 drivers in total plus 2 passive radiators - 5 
drivers consist of 2 mid-range, 2 tweeters and a sub-woofer which is actually 
set below the mid volume, all other drivers are set to their mid settings.
The device I used to capture this was the Olympus LS-14.

2019-02-23 Thread Dane Trethowan
Okay for what its worth.

Here's a sample of what the Denon Heos 7 HS2 Network powered speaker sounds
like which I think perfectly reasonable.

The source material is the Up Tempo Smooth Jazz Radiotunes channel.

Note this sample has been compressed to MP3 from the original 96KHZ 24-bit
Wave sample.

Re: [all-audio] An external power source for the Zoom F8N

2019-02-23 Thread Dane Trethowan
I’ve just got the Ravpower out for a charge.
I have plenty of things to test the Powerbank on before hooking it to the Zoom 
F8N and even then I’m still looking for that adapter but first things first and 
that’s to see whether the Powerbank is still operable.
I’ve used the Ravpower in the past to power all sorts of things, everything 
from radio sets to `notebooks, musical keyboards etc.
Sorry I can’t really help with your microphone problem though I’m sure I’m 
going to run into a few of these sorts of issues myself in the future.

[all-audio] An external power source for the Zoom F8N

2019-02-23 Thread Dane Trethowan
I found a solution to this problem quite by accident.
Andy had sent the list a link to a discussion on external power sources for the 
Zoom F8 which - in the main - was also appropriate for the Zoom F8N.
I took note of the various batteries suggested and was making plans to purchase 
as soon as as I could, that is until I went through one of the bottom draws of 
my filing cabinet and discovered a Ravpower variable voltage Powerbank that I 
had completely forgotten about.
This beauty should do the trick of powering the Zoom F8N quite nicely given 
that it has a voltage range from 9 to 20 volts.
The bank also offers 2 USB ports so charging a mobile phone as well as powering 
the recorder is possible.
I need to get an adapter to fit between the Powerbank and the recorder and 
thanks to the useful information provided in the discussion I shouldn’t have 
any problem doing that.
So things have been made incredibly easy for the external supply and thanks 
again to Andy for passing this on.
When I have the system up and running the power will come from the external 
supply when away from the AC mains.
When the supply is exhausted the recorder will switch to the internal AA 
battery supply so the question will be just how long the Ravpower Powerbank 
will last?
As a footnote the Zoom F8N can be powered from external power from any voltage 
between 9 and 18 volts.

Hi there and sorry for the late reply.
I've had a look at this meter and my own personal view is that $400 is one
hell of a lot to spend on something like this.
I bought a Bluetooth Multi Meter from an Australian supplier called Jaycar
Electronics and this does me well enough.
I use my Android phone along with the downloadable App which does a number
of things.
Firstly you can double-tap on the screen to have a voice readout or set this
to automatic mode, the App uses Google TTS Engine or whatever you have set
as a default TTS engine.
Second the App creates a log which you can upload to Dropbox or Google Drive
so you can keep track of the measurements you're making or add notes if
required.
The cost of this meter was $130 Australian.
A quick search on Amazon reveals quite a few Bluetooth Multi Meter tools
which may be useful or in fact be the same as the one I'm discussing here so
its up to the buyer I guess to do some testing and to return the unit if it
can't be used.
Thanks Frank for passing this information on to the list.

Hi there and sorry for the late reply.
I've had a look at this meter and my own personal view is that $400 is one
hell of a lot to spend on something like this.
I bought a Bluetooth Multi Meter from an Australian supplier called Jaycar

I use my Android phone along with the downloadable App which does a number

Re: [all-audio] Sound Forge Audio Cleaning Lab

2019-02-21 Thread Dane Trethowan
Yep you’re understanding me correctly regarding the Interface of Sound Forge 
Audio Cleaning Lab and for $59 I think it a worthwhile investment just just 
from looking at what’s on offer with this software through the menu system and 
keyboard shortcuts.
Regarding the capturing of audio? Well it just makes common sense to me to use 
an external device these days given that they’re so reliable and so cheap to 
buy, you even get better results than you would through a lot of Sound Cards 
which would cost as much if not more than the recorder itself.

Re: [all-audio] Sound Forge Audio Cleaning Lab

2019-02-21 Thread Dane Trethowan
I used Sound Forge to capture audio once upon a not so long ago but gave up
for much the same reason as you have mentioned.
I never regarded Sound Forge as a good audio capturing tool but that was
then and this is now.
Sound Forge Audio Cleaning Lab can capture audio if that's what you prefer
to do or that's the only means you have of getting audio onto your computer.
Thankfully I can and will avoid all that by recording the audio on one of my
recorders and then transferring it to the computer where upon I can load the
audio grack into Sound Forge Audio Cleaning Lab and work from there
hopefully.
The layout of the App looks at a glance quite intuitive though some hands-on
experience will let me know for sure.
Sound Forge Audio Cleaning Lab has a menu system and shortcuts to boot.
I don't expect to be able to analyse or edit the spectrum though .

Dane,

I would be very interested in how you find this app.  I use Sound Forge and
was also considering trying this out since the price is fairly low.  Mostly,
I am curious if we are able to use if reasonably well, and I'm also curious
to hear how its audio capture feature works.  I have been stung in the past
capturing audio on a computer only to find later that some process caused me
to miss little bits of audio, and have tended not to capture audio on my
computer that I couldn't listen to from end to end.  I know, it was probably
just me.Still, much of what this software does is subjective to
some degree, so a quick description of the interface even before you get
into the guts of it all would be very much appreciated.

Hi,

Magix are offering this for $59 for a limited time so - at that price - I
thought I'd buy this App to see what I could make of it.

I have some vinyl here which I'll sample with the Zoom F8N and then transfer
to the computer to see what I can manage - if anything - with the App.

The Audio Cleaning Lab is a separate application to the actual Sound Forge
and is supposed to be a new 64-bit offering from Magix.

Re: [all-audio] Olympus LS-14 Recorder

2019-02-20 Thread Dane Trethowan
Olympus are certainly known for their Dictation offerings and not their 
professional recording offerings and let's face it, the Olympus LS-100 - 
despite of its many shortcomings in my view - is aimed at the professional 
market.
Whether Olympus can hold their own against the Zoom H6 for example in this 
market? It’s a tall order for Olympus given that the Zoom H6 - whilst capable 
of so much more - is at a similar price to the Olympus LS-100.
Having said all that we have to acknowledge that it wasn't all that long ago 
when Zoom was a completely unheard of name in the world of professional audio 
recorders.
Now Zoom have set a whole heap of benchmarks that the so-called professional 
brands such as Tascam and Roland can only dream of.
If you listen to many of the reviews of the Zoom F8N for example you'll note 
how inthusiastic the reviewers are about the recorders and its not just the 
feature set they're raving about but the price of one of these recorders means 
that you don't have to robb a bank to purchase something that makes damn nice 
audio recordings and has the flexibility for all sorts of recording situations 
whether you be a film maker, recording your company meeting, recording Podcasts 
or just singing along to your Casio Piano and Yamaha Keyboard as I've done - 
the neighbours ran away when they heard it too  -.
Seriously though, I don't yet have a keyboard amp but its one of the items on 
my "To Purchase" list, at the moment I use headphones.

As we’ve lamented previously its terribly sad that Olympus chose not to carry 
on with the development of the DM-4 as it included a whole heap of useful 
features that were never finished.

Yes it is a shame about XLR connectivity however the unit is small so adding 
that functionality would have made the recorder that little bit larger.
I can see a good reason as to why people would buy this recorder if it had XLR 
connectivity as it would be a very cheap and practical studio device even 
though the unit isn't a multi track recorder.
As things stand I'm very pleased with the recorder the way it is and I'll 
probably end up using the recorder more often than I've done the LS-P4 though

[all-audio] Olympus LS-14 Recorder

2019-02-20 Thread Dane Trethowan
I finally received my LS-14 recorder today so here are my impressions.
I know the internal speaker of a recorder is terribly important to some people. 
For me an internal speaker doesn’t mean much and I suppose that’s probably 
because I’ve used so many professional recording solutions without speakers so 
I’m probably used to monitoring with headphones.
I will say that the internal speaker of the LS-14 does grab the attention of 
the ears and has quite a pleasant sound to it.
The LS-14 is bigger than I had expected but small enough for portable field 
use. If you want something smaller then go for the LS-P4 which has several 
advantages over the LS-14.
The LS-P4 has a better voice guidance system though still no match for the DM4 
in this area.
I’ve played with the Smart Level -rehursal - mode of the LS-14 which is very 
nice however its not the final say when it comes to adjusting levels.
In the end it comes down to your personal taste, do you want the smart level 
function of the LS-14 or perhaps you would prefer the “Look Ahead” buffer of 
the LS-P4. Whatever your preference both seem to work well.
I have my LS-14 running from a USB Powerbank and I’m going to test to see just 
how much battery life I’ll et from the bank on the recorder in the next few 
days.
I’m not at all concerned that the LS-14 cannot recharge batteries internally, 
the Zoom recorders don’t do this so again its something I’ve become accustomed 
to.
The plastic build of the LS-14 is excellent and not the shoddy plastic build 
that was the Olympus DM-7.
The Line-in socket is a welcome addition to a recorder of this size and I look 
forward to capturing audio from it. I hope an included line-in will mean a 
pretty much record and forget idea when capturing.
As yet I’ve not set the Date and Time, voice Guidance doesn’t work with this 
setting it seems.
The menu system takes a little getting used to but at least it can be navigated.
I haven’t yet found a way to erase multiple files form memory, I can certainly 
erase 1 file at a time.
I’m pleased to see the Olympus recorder supporting PCM Wave format all the way 
up to 96KHZ 24-bit so very good for those of us who want to record from 
turntables or want that extra excitement when capturing live music.
Its a pity the LS-14 will not record FLAC and its quite possible that the 
processor in the LS-14 isn’t quite powerful enough to manage what the LS-P4 
does in this regard.
So that’s pretty much it as far as I’m concerned with the LS-14 which I’ve been 
exploring for the last 2 hours.
I found Neal’s review very helpful along with the knowledge obtained from other 
list members here.

Re: [all-audio] URL for Zoom please

2019-02-19 Thread Dane Trethowan
Thanks for capturing this.
The only differences I can see between the F8 and F8N are the way the AA 
batteries are installed and the voltage of the connector.
With the F8n the input voltage can be up to 18 volts.
As far as the batteries go the F8N takes the same amount of AA batteries - 8 
but they directly fit into the recorder rather than slide in and out on a tray.

Hi Dane.

Have a listen to this link.  It's all about the Zoom F8 and alternative power 
sources.

I don't think that there will be any difference between the F8 and F8N.

Yes I too am looking around at external Powerbanks for the Zoom F8n and 
there’s no doubt that they are battery hungry or can be might be the better 
way of putting it.
If the Zoom F8N is working at full throttle - that is to say you’re using 
192KHZ 24-bit recording on 2 SD cards - then you’re only going to get around 
4 hours out of a set of Alkaline batteries, even less for Rechargeable I 
would imagine though I’ve no idea how long with the Lythium batteries I 
purchased.
Back to the Powerbank, you can use any voltage between 9 and 18 volts and 
have the recorder switch power supplies if if the voltage of one power 
supply hits a certain threshold.
You might for example have the recorder switch to internal batteries if the 
Powerbank you’re using slips below 12 volts, at least then you have some 
backup and can stop recording proceedings at the earliest opportunity.
I don’t know what sort of warning one gets when the power supply switches or 
the voltage becomes low.
Surely the display would show something but that’s pretty much useless to 
us.
I know one can enable a low battery tone in the settings -I think its 
enabled by default - so perhaps you may hear that.
Yes it is a shame that we two seem to be the only happy users of the Zoom 
F8n in the blind community perhaps. Bare in mind that I had to save for 6 
months to get my kit and you probably dreamed about owning a Zoom F8n for 
just as long as I did  so with that in mind both of us have done 
extremely well and even more so considering we both are familiar with the 
wonderful Zoom H6 recorder.
Let me know how you get on with your search for your external power supply 
though I think you’ll probably find what I have.
I found the power banks as I stated above so what needs to be done now is to 
find the connections required and do some assembly.
Thankfully the manual of the Zoom F8n shows you what connections need to go 
to what.
Again hardly helpful if you can’t see the diagram.
All the same though at the very least we have something to give our sighted 
friends to lend us a hand.
I didn’t buy a sound bag and I talk about this in a subsequent eMail.

Hi,
I have an excellent Podcast manager on my iPhone thanks to Apple.
I have a very good Podcast Manager for Android called Pocketcasts.
I use Downcast to manage Podcasts on my Mac Machines and now I’ve started using 
the IOS version on my iPad Pro.
So does anyone have any good recommendations for a Podcast Manager for Windows?

So I take it you now have your Zoom F8N in some sort of working and recording 
order, how do you find it? I can’t put my F8N down.
The F8N is the most wonderful recorder I’ve ever used though I still have fond 
memories of the H6 and I don’t forget  we all started somewhere before 
upgrading .
I’m trying to find some external power banks I can use with the Zoom F8N.
I also bought some Lythium batteries fro the recorder a couple of weeks ago.
Lythium batteries have a long shelf life and are much lighter than alkaline 
batteries whilst giving more power.
To be clear here I’m talking about Lythium batteries and not Lythium-iron 
batteries.
The Lythium cells I bought come in the AA size at 1.5 volts each cell.

Re: [all-audio] URL for Zoom please

2019-02-17 Thread Dane Trethowan
Hmm.. I don’t know whether mine is a sound bag, I looked on eBay and found a 
Carry Case from the Zoom F8N.
The case is a little difficult to describe but I’ll do my best.
At one end is a transparent piece which you lift off to insert the recorder on 
one side whilst on the other you can insert say the AC mains adapter etc.
On the sides of the case are expandable pockets for extras such as microphones, 
leads etc.
All of this is held together with velcro clasps which can be moved and 
rearranged depending on the contents in the case.
At the other end is a zippered panel that gives you access to everything.

Okay well at that rate you’d be better off using Auto Replay gain which just 
about every audio Media Player supports.
This way the player does all the level adjustment for you to normalise 
everything.

A side question if I may.
What’s the reason you wish to normalise these files. Are you going to be using 
them in some sort of project or are you just normalising them for your own

[all-audio] Olympus Ls-14

2019-02-09 Thread Dane Trethowan
I’m very glad you mentioned the Olympus LS-14 actually.
I tried to get hold of one last year but had to settle for the LS-P4 - no 
problem there -.
One did come up on eBay just recently so I snapped it up.
In a few days I will be able to see what the LS-14 offers and of course I’ll be 
using the excellent review Neal Ewers did on the machine as a reference.
Pity about not being able to use rechargeable batteries with the LS-14 so I’ll 
use one of the Powerbanks I have instead.

Re: [all-audio] To Dane and list

2019-02-09 Thread Dane Trethowan
I chose 96K 24-bit because not all functions of the Zoom F8N support higher bit 
rates, Auto Mix for example but nevertheless 96K is a damn good rate to be 
using with 24 bit.
I can understand where the engineer is coming from in a lot of ways setting the 
sampling rate at 48KHZ.
Whilst I prefer higher myself a lot of computers would probably have trouble 
handling any more than 48K depending on the software and Sound Card being used 
so that would be one factor to take into consideration.
With the Mac which I use most of the time this isn’t a problem.
The other point being here is that you’re making live recordings and you 
probably won’t be wanting to master them.
So back to the recorder itself.
I’ve been going through the menu options as I’ve been telling the list over the 
last month or so.
The first 2 options in the memory are “Finder” and “Medadata For Next Take”.
The Finder allows you to search for content within folders on the SD card or 
cards if you have more than one installed.
I’ve not examined this option but will do in the future when I work out how to 
connect a Keyboard to the F8N though even then without speech there seems 
little point.
On the other hand Enter Metadata for Next Take may be slightly useable with a 
keyboard. No, I won’t get any feedback however I should be able to remember the 
order in which the metadata is presented thus I can move through the fields etc.
The manual for the F8N gives specific keyboard commands to do just that.
The next 2 options in the menu system are Input and Output respectively and 
I’ll be working on those next week.

I can’t argue with the statements below.
I actually have my F8N and other recorders set to 96K 24-bit but in the end its 
up to the individual how they want things done.
One has to remember too that with higher bit rates then the bigger SD memory

So what given the Zoom F8N can take 2 512GB memory cards? Well the so what

[all-audio] More on Radioboss Radio DJ and Automation Software

2019-02-07 Thread Dane Trethowan
Hi Everyone,

I mentioned Radioboss around a week ago and before that I mentioned the
software around 2 years ago.

At the time I forwarded an eMail message to the list from a friend who was
successfuly using the Radioboss software at his local Hospital Radio
station, Friend is also totally blind.

So that was "Then" and this is "Now". I will save my comments regarding
"Then" for later in this eMail but for the time being will focus on the
present "Now".

My friend Gordon had suggested I have another look at Radioboss last week
after I made the suggestion that I purchase Station Playlist whatever its
called these days.

I did intend to purchase the full version of Station Playlist even though
the price is rather high and this is something I'll go into further shortly.

Gordon suggested I try Radioboss and see what I thought.

Radioboss is easy to find at http://www.radioboss.com where you can
downloaded the Advanced version to try.

I've been exploring Radioboss for a week and was pleased to note that the
author seems to have gone out of his way to make the software accessible.

Actually there's an accessibility toggle in the "View" menu which was turned
off for the majority of my testing thus far.

The Software boasts plenty of shortcut key combinations and more can be set
for functionality if required.

So how does Radioboss sound? Here is a link to an hour of the testing I did
to see how the audio and DSP sounded with Radioboss.

The processing needs a little tweaking which I can do but I think right out
of the box Radioboss sounds very good indeed so have a listen yourself at
https://www.dropbox.com/s/owguume4yjdxydg/20190208_14-03-32.flac?dl=0

So now to when I mentioned Radioboss on the then pc-audio list around 2
years ago with the forwarded eMail.

I was disappointed with the reaction of some list members.

Yes some tried the software but said that Radioboss would never be
accessible because of the language the software was written in.

Another list member wrote to Gordon directly and asked him not to advertise
the fact that their was a competitor to Station Playlist as this person
wanted to develop JAWS scripts for Station Playlist and didn't want any
interference thanks very much.

As a blind person myself I found both attitudes quite astounding and my view
is very simple.

The more choice we have then the better for all.

I have no problem with anyone using Station Playlist, Radioboss or whatever
and if you're able to use the software then let's hear some positive
feedback regarding your experience and some encouragement rather than
selfish netativity.

One can download a trial of Radioboss Advanced from http://radioboss.com or
purchase the full Radioboss Advanced for $249 US which is less than half the
price of Station Playlist Whatever.

Different versions of Radioboss are available allowing extra plugins to be
added for more functionality and flexibility but Radioboss Advanced has all
of the bells and whistles so I thought I'd go with that given the price tag.

Hi,

I'm always interested in recommendations for good Radio Automation software
so I couldn't resist having a look at Radioboss

https://www.djsoft.net/

The software would seem to be very accessible indeed given my 2 days
exploration.

Radioboss is available for the Windows PC.

question was asked of VLC and not Winamp.
I do of course use VLC and I do know that VLC has a Bookmarking feature but 
I’ve never used it thus I don’t know the extent of the function nor its 
capabilities - I don’t listen to Audio books in this way and if I do then 
they’re divided into tracks so that’s my bookmarking -.
But in all events, give the function a try and if there’s anything amiss or if 
you’d like to see some functionality added then drop the team at VLC a line.

[all-audio] Plex review

2019-01-31 Thread Dane Trethowan
Hi,

In recent on list discussions we have been speaking about Windows Media
Center and alternatives to this App given that Windows Media Center is no
longer supported.

One of those great alternatives is Plex so here's a review of the product
that goes into some detailed explanation of Plex and the power that Plex can
be when it comes to manipulating your media.

Ah okay.
I ha a Hp Notebook at one time which was designed around Windows Media Center 
with its own built-in tuner and 2 different remote controls, one was designed 
for convenience whilst the other had more controls on it.

You'd loved it though Tom. Media Center was pure epicness. I really wish they'd 
kept it, made it play Blu-Ray Disks and so on. Oh well, VLC is verry 
acccessible. Just keep Any DVD HD running as you play the disk. 
That's how I did it.

Is that device Larry demonstrates a TV tuner? If so then I can recommend 
something which I think is very good and I’m talked about the products from 
Silicondust before.
Plex finds them right out of the box so all the user has to do is connect to 
the LAN, connect to a TV aerial, Connect to a mains power outlet and switch on.
The tuner has a handy interface for monitoring the tuners and watching live 
television from your browser.
You can also check the status of each tuner - see what each is doing -, perform 
a channel scan etc.

What you forwarded to the list comes as no surprise to me and yes Microsoft do 
analyse usage data of their Apps.
Windows Media centre hadn't - when I last used it - been updated for a good

I now use Plex to handle everything that Windows Media Center did though -

I very much liked Windows Media Center however because of the infrequent

As for upgrading to Windows 10? There are plenty of good reasons to do so

Re: [all-audio] FW: Of Interest

2019-01-29 Thread Dane Trethowan
We’ve known for some time that Windows Media Center was living on borrowed time 
and earlier versions of Windows Media Player too.
In the case of Windows Media Center - that being the App I know more about as I 
used it on a 24/7 basis - I knew that development had stopped well before the 
release of Windows 10.
Back at that time I believe that one could purchase Windows Media Center for an 
extra fee if one really wanted it so that’s when I began exploring alternative 
options.
Just as well I did because those alternatives were not only more accessible in 
many ways but were able to take advantages of emerging technologies.
Fastforward on to today and we see quite a few clients taking the place of 
Windows Media Center. I’ve mentioned Plex which is quite accessible and uses a 
web based content.
Getting a Plex Account - and a Plex Pass - is like opening a door on not just 
your personal and recorded media but a door onto media world-wide so if anyone 
is interested in this sort of thing go to www.plex.tv <http://www.plex.tv/> and 
sign up for a trial to explore exactly what Plex offers.
If you find everything in 30 days then you’ll be doing a damn good job as Plex 
offers just so much, “The World Is Your Oyster”.

Re: [all-audio] FW: Of Interest

2019-01-28 Thread Dane Trethowan
What you forwarded to the list comes as no surprise to me and yes Microsoft do 
analyse usage data of their Apps.
Windows Media centre hadn't - when I last used it - been updated for a good 
while and had at that time fallen behind many other alternatives.
I now use Plex to handle everything that Windows Media Center did though - 
given I use Windows 10 - I couldn’t have used Windows Media Center even if I’d 
wanted to as Windows Media Center doesn’t come as part of Windows 10.
I very much liked Windows Media Center however because of the infrequent 
updates known problems with the App just weren’t fixed whereas Plex and VLC are 
updated frequently.
As for upgrading to Windows 10? There are plenty of good reasons to do so 
including better handling of audio and video devices, a far more stable 
operating system etc.
Anyway its the individuals call.

[all-audio] Olympus recorders announcing file names

2019-01-27 Thread Dane Trethowan
Hi everyone,
Does anyone know of an Olympus recorder where the speech can read out the file 
name selected?
I did have a Dm4 at one stage, I don’t remember exactly but I think that model 
read out the file names as you moved up and down the list.
I know certainly that the LS-P4 and the LS-100 recorders won’t read the names 
out.

Re: [all-audio] To Dane and list

2019-01-26 Thread Dane Trethowan
The first thing to be said about the LS-100 is its lack of inputs so that 
really stuffs the multi track idea up completely, what's the point of a multi 
track recorder with 2 inputs? The Zoom H6 is more practical with 6 inputs.
Second I was never able to successfully navigate the multi track Interface of 
the LS-100 whereas using Multi track functionality of the Zoom H6 and F8 
recorders is an absolute breeze in comparison.
Yes I used the Olympus LS-100 for quite a few tasks as I've detailed on this 
list.
These tasks included sampling Vinyl and I've also said that if you're into 
sampling vinyl then the LS-100 would be a great choice for that sort of thing 
rather than sampling directly to your computer.
The microphones of the LS-100 sound very nice but as Neal and others have said 
- and I say -, recording outdoors is a real problem as wind gets through the 
sockets of the recorder so - even if you have a wind screen fitted - you will 
get interference from wind noise.

Ah interesting. How so? Neal never touched the multitrack stuff. Well weather 
he tried it or not who actually knows. But at least on podcast he didn't say 
anything because it didn't talk there. So how did it go? 
If you're saying it was a dog's breakfast I can only assume not verry well. lol 
I haven't touched multi track and bouncing stuff on the H6 cause I'd have to 
use aira. I have some trouble with lighting in my room. Also for some reason 
the Iphone camera has a hard time with the screen. Go someware sunny enough 
though and it's okay. Na dude don't get me wrong. I love and wana complete my 
H6. It's just that the F8 and now as the F8N seems just so much closer to the 
dreem. Which would be 1 of them 7 recorders from Sound Devices. I see it this 
way. The F8N is an 8 channal XLR machine like the Sound-Devices 788-T but for 
way way much less. If the recording I heard made on an F4 is anything to judge 
buy boy these things are pretty dam realistic and movie like as you can get 
other than actually getting the 788-T. But yeah dude. I love my H6. It's 
actually too bad it's so cold and I can't go out doors. I love capturing things 
with it. I have plans of things to record with it.

Its nice to know that Zoom make a recorder to suit just about every application

I just rid myself of my Olympus LS-100 for the simple reason that I had better 
machines in my collection thanks very much to Zoom, the Zoom H6 for example

Re: [all-audio] To Dane and list

2019-01-25 Thread Dane Trethowan
I’m not laughing and I’m very lucky I guess in that I’m curious and I get some 
sighted assistance every now and then to give me a hand.
Firstly the Zoom F8N stands on 4 rubber feet which are placed on the bottom of 
the recorder so you know where the bottom is by the feel of the rubber feet.
The top is easily identified by 4 slotted screws that hold the recorder into 
the rack mount.
There is a handle on each side of the recorder so when the recorder is standing 
on its rubber feet these each handle will be protruding from either side of the 
recorder.
The display of the recorder therefor is on the front left with the control 
panel taking up the rest of the area on the front panel.
On the left hand side you have tracks 1 through 4 as XLR/TRS inputs along with 
the 2 SD Card slots and the multi function USB port.
On the right hand side you have tracks 5 through 8 XLR/TRS inputs along with 
the external power supply socket mini XLR out sockets, a sub output socket and 
the headphones socket.
On the back from left to right there is the Zoom Capsule connector which has a 
cover over it, 2 sockets which are for Time syncing with a video camera and so 
on and the 9 volts DC power socket for the supplied AC adapter.
At the bottom on the recorder at the back in the centre is the screw to you 
losen to remove the battery compartment door so you will have to turn the 
recorder upside down to insert batteries.

Re: [all-audio] IOS Voice Memos App

2019-01-24 Thread Dane Trethowan
Points taken.
Thankfully with the Zoom F8N you can connect a number of independent power 
supplies apart from the battery of the IOS device or the batteries of the 
recorder itself if it indeed is using any.
The power supply arrangement is quite complex and very flexible.
The Zoom F8N can be configured to run from any voltage between 9 and 18 volts 
so this means that the recorder can be run from a very wide range of power 
sources and battery packs.
Further to this the recorder can shutdown when the voltage falls below a 
certain level or switch to an alternate power source.
An example of this perhaps would be when the batteries themselves get low, the 
recorder can switch to a custom made battery backup.

Yeah either that or actually what I believe and no offence to anyone that does 
use the IPhone for real work, they may expect that musicians and whom ever else 
would use the IPad for true production and serious work. I don't think so with 
the battery thing because the H6 uses it's own. The choice for the IPad is 
called stereo mix IPad battery. Any of the H6's choices that end with battery 
mean that it'll use it's own batteries. I wish there were a way to put an 
external battry between the IPhone or IPad and the H6. You can power the H6 
with those power bank things to recharge your IPhone.

[all-audio] Retiring my Zoom H1

2019-01-23 Thread Dane Trethowan
Hi everyone,

I've had the great pleasure of using my Zoom H1 recorder for 9 years and
even though the machine is in absolutely perfect condition I've decided to
retire the machine and move on.

Actually I had 2 Zoom H1 recorders so that's how much I thought of the
machine and I still have a fondness for the H1.

To me the H1 truly stood out as an example of exactly what a Handy Recorder
should be with no complex menus and recording was as straight forward as it
possibly could have been, press a button and you're recording.

So time to move on and I'm thinking about the Zoom H1N or possibly the Zoom
H2N.

I know some list members have the H1N, what do they think of the machine.

I've looked at the H1N home page and there's no doubt that the H1N certainly
packs it in when it comes to nice handy and useful functionality.

Re: [all-audio] How to rip CDs with VLC

Hi there,
Have you tried updating to the latest VLC? This might solve your stability 
issues.
I have found that VLC wasn’t automatically updating itself as it usually would 
so a trip to the VLC download page may very well be in order.

Re: [all-audio] How to rip CDs with VLC

2019-01-21 Thread Dane Trethowan
A couple of points here.
I don’t think the dialogue box is complicated and remember that this dialogue 
box provides functionality for a whole range of conversion possibilities and 
Ripping to CD’S is just one.
I get more out of the dialogue box when using the JAWS cursor etc.

[all-audio] Notes on VLC Media Player

2019-01-20 Thread Dane Trethowan
Okay folks a few things I discovered when using VLC Media Player for Windows 
just now.
In the Media menu there’s a “Recent” menu where 10 of the most recent tracks or 
streams played etc are stored.
You can scroll through the list or perhaps even better you can access each of 
the 10 items via a shortcut key, CTRL-+ 0 through 9 will access the items in 
the recent list in the order played.
Also take advantage of the very powerful context menu options available for VLC.
For example suppose you have a folder filled with thousands of songs you can go 
to the folder in File Explorer, right click on it and choose Add to VLC Media 
Players Playlist and start the party.
You can search for titles within VLC of course, randomly select, save out to a 
playlist and so it goes.
