Re: Opinion, please?

One common error. Plug the H2 in and let it settle. Only then start Audacity. If you still have trouble, make sure Windows Sound Control Panel can see the H2 and the little Windows volume icon can bounce when you speak. The H2 can throw serious mud in the game if it tries to be a "Surround" micropho...

Re: Opinion, please?

Of those two sound samples, I think the H2 would have come off well in that interview. Zoom sets its own volumes for transmission, so all you have to worry about is keeping a quiet, echo-free studio and wear headphones. Let me know if you can't find that USB management thing. I'm almost 100% sure it...

Re: Opinion, please?

But it doesn't show up as an option in Audacity. These units have two "modes." In one mode, the USB cable lets your computer access the memory card. In the other, the recorder turns into a microphone. I have no idea how the H2 does it, but that's very common and it sounds like you have the wrong mo...

Re: Opinion, please?

Piece o' cake. You should be listening to the host on headphones/earphones/earbuds. Most of that hollow distortion is Zoom et al trying to keep the host's voice our of your replies. Did you notice once there at the beginning, the host interrupted you briefly and your voice dipped in volume? If the h...

Re: Noise Reduction Help

There's another possibility, too. Do you have a Zoom session running when you recorded that?

That could be Zoom Transmission Management. It's not perfect.

Re: Noise Reduction Help

It's interference from some motor. Dentist drill? Busy intersection? Right around 7 seconds, the motor turns off and you can hear the pitch go down. And that's the killer problem. Noise Reduction can't do anything about noises that change pitch. You need to find that motor and announce when it's not...

Re: Opinion, please?

There are a couple of "becoming familiar with your recorder" exercises. I assume you have the instruction manual. -- Know what it looks like when the batteries are going flat. If you have an interview with the governor, put fresh ones in. I have a trick with that. When you take the old batteries out...

Re: Opinion, please?

H2. Ummmmm. What would I do if someone said I had to conduct an interview with an H2? With reference to the postings way up this forum message, you should be able to set the date and time before you trusted it with anything valuable. We know from the manual and my own H1n that the date and time corr...

Re: Opinion, please?

Y'know why I exported as mp3 Twenty seconds of perfect quality Mono WAV (one blue wave) should fit. Ten seconds of perfect quality Stereo WAV (two blue waves) should work. You can submit any lesser quality MP3 smaller than 2MB. We're not crazy about MP3 for troubleshooting and analysis because it h...
