Comparing is difficult

Toni A., 22.11.2018
Before anyone thinks bad, the part is already great in itself. But ... and now only from me, I have a problem with the noise. This is not so surprising because of this size and the price, because I am used to my Neumänner and SoundDevices from my initial position. Imaginable silence is also important to me. Since I found no information about it anywhere on the net, I had to make my own experiences. That is also the reason for separation from the H3-VR for me.
Zoom has done a great job here and also provided an easy-to-use software. The device is really small and in my opinion intended for Viedeofilmer who also have a basic sound. For silence just difficult. For mega compact. You can just put it somewhere and he would work about 11 hours in front of him (according to the manufacturer). He apparently consumes no electricity. However, it is made of plastic, so almost no weight, but very sensitive to the touch. Where should the technology go? The sound seems a bit thin in the result, but I did not spend much on editing. The headphone amplifier is sufficient for rough monitoring. The final assessment can only take place on the computer. By software on the computer in real time, the change of direction, etc. changeable.
Usability almost intuitive. Amazingly many setting parameters for this small box possible. Footsteps and so on, everything possible, but for me it is not enough quality. I have to climb higher.
Nevertheless, a buy recommendation for all on a small budget, because everything that comes afterwards is much more expensive, unfortunately not without reason.

Again a real zoom

fotoralf, 22.11.2018
Actually and conceptually an absolutely ingenious idea, and if you see it that way, you wonder why someone had not come long ago.

That's exactly what I've always missed in my recordings of soundscapes and industrial atmos.

The recorder is compact, easy to use, the recording quality is neat, for a device with so many features everything is solved quite intuitively, and you would not want to miss the remote control via Bluetooth after the first shot.

The software for the computer is still expandable. The conversion to Binaural does not convince me. Others can do that better. Above all, a minimum level correction or normalization function is missing. Maybe there is an occasional update.

Alone, zoom would not be zoom if they had not allowed themselves a bad blunder again. You already know that for a while. Sometimes it is the too sensitive line input (H2), sometimes the limiter * behind * the A / D converter (H4n).

Here at the H3-VR it is the attachment of the microphone group at the top of the device. The is on the black plastic pin that protrudes from the bottom of the housing, simply clipped, and this connection has play. It wobbles sensible and audible.

The result: when the device is slightly shaken, for example, because the tripod for outdoor shooting in the wind slightly oscillates, or even when shooting in a vehicle, then it rattles audible and the recording is over.

Thomann has kindly exchanged the first device lightning fast, but the second rappels almost worse. A call to the German importer brings to light amazing:

Yes, the phenomenon was known and the devices from their warehouse, which they would have looked, even so. But no, that was not a serial error, and if that interferes with driving shots, for example, then the device is just not suitable. Aha...

One could try to find a solution with a little tape. Stupid only that can be attached to the place no tape properly. A drop of superglue? Would probably help, but then expires, according to the importer in case of service, the warranty.

I will still risk it with some hot glue, because there is nothing comparable to the affordable price. That's annoying anyway. But as an old zoom user, one has learned to live with such pods.

Supplement, 27.12.2018: Date and time are not processed correctly. The values in the file and in the file name are 9 hours earlier than the value of the real-time clock. If you introduce the 9 hours, the time is correct in the file, but from 15 clock in the afternoon, the file name is no longer, because there already the date of the following day is entered.

Please, please, zoom ... urgently an update!

The multitracker is a great tool for musicians of all levels. It really can be a ‘studio in a box’ replacing many of the components of a traditional studio.
