Re: Opinion, please?

I sure appreciate all the time you guys have spent on this. Yes, it's a Dell desktop / tower, so no built-in mic. I have had to use my laptop on the road, and it's worked out all right. So it sounds like I have a workable solution with the H2 plus Plextone, and should stick with that. I worry about ...

Re: Opinion, please?

I tried the other 2 audio hosts, MME and Windows WASAPI, and had the same results--nothing happens when I hit record. It's not working with Zoom either (using the USB cable with the H2--using the Plextone works fine). Can you believe it--when I search Control Panel it doesn't find Realtek. Realtek.p...

Re: Opinion, please?

So much great help. I appreciate your giving me your time. I do have the paper manual that came with the H2, and I can track with you as you cite page numbers. Trying to respond to everything in order, but probably failing: I noticed my friend (in the Zoom interview) is using a desk mic and a wired ...

Re: Opinion, please?

Boy, I only had to have the H2 batteries fail once when I was interviewing someone. It's a hard lesson. I also found that the batteries ran down very fast if I left them in the H2. So I kept it empty, and carried 4 batteries, with two marked as "in use" and two brand new. Here are a couple more 11 s...

Re: Opinion, please?

Actually these are interviews people are doing with me, as an author/speaker. Usually they're done over Zoom, and I'm sitting at my desk. Most recently: https://thesymbolicworld.com/videos/how-we-exist-together-re-enchantment-and-orthodoxy-with-frederica-mathewes-green/ I can see my interviewer is u...

Re: Opinion, please?

Oh, I hadn't checked the Recordings Tab. I only unchecked Playback. For both mics, under Mic Properties > Advanced, it did have Audio Enhancements checked, so I unchecked it. There are two other things checked under "Exclusive Mode" --should I uncheck them? I will make recordings again and send them...

Re: Opinion, please?

Whew. It's amazing it passed the ACX test, right off; when I was working on a book a year ago, I had a heck of a time trying to get voice volume and noise floor to meet in the right place simultaneously. And I used the de-esser and de-clicker for that book. I'm so grateful for them and all the other...

Re: Opinion, please?

Ohhhhh...that's a really good idea. I never thought of that. I was thinking "But I have to edit it in Audacity!" -- right, after I upload it from the SD card. But it would be just that one little step faster if I could be using Audacity while I record. Those recordings I sent earlier today, one from...

Re: Opinion, please?

Here are a short recording from my H2 and my desktop C-1U, of the same 2 sentences. A new complication is that it's a hot afternoon and the attic fan is going, right above my office. I left a little room-noise and the beginning and end of each recording in hopes it could be discounted; if not, I can...
