    Sony PCM-M10 - Top-notch pocketable field recorder

    by TreDay on 11-25-2014 05:54 PM Since I've purchased the M10 a few months ago, it's been my sole recorder for both outdoor field recording ambiances and also studio recording sound effects. It's also easy to keep in my pocket to carry around and record random sounds that I encounter while I'm on the go. The first thing you notice about the PCM-M10 is that it's extremely compact, about the size of a small cellphone, though a bit thicker. It features 8GB of internal storage with a slot for a MicroSD card or Sony's proprietary M2 format for more storage and both a microphone and line input in addition to the two onboard omnidirectional microphones. The omnidirectional mics are actually quite usable and relatively quiet for cheap onboard microphones. They actually have a bit of wind protection under the casing, making them usable outdoors on mildly windy days without requiring a fuzzy wind protector. It's important to note that the M10 doesn't have any XLR inputs and it doesn't supply phantom power, so you'll have to use a phantom power supply or a separate mixer like the Sound Devices MixPre-D to power condenser microphones if they aren't battery powered. The M10 is able to record in PCM format up to 24-bit/96KHz. It's also capable of recording in encoded MP3 in 3 bitrates: 64kbps, 128kbps, and 320kbps. One problem with the M10 is that even when using an external microphone you cannot record in mono. I do most of my recording with the M10 for one shot sound effects so I don't actually need stereo recordings too often, therefore I have to manually strip or downmix in my 2-track audio editor to get a mono recording. A mild annoyance, but an annoyance nonetheless. The build quality is great. It's mostly plastic with an aluminum face, but it doesn't feel flimsy at all. There's no loose parts wiggling around and it feels very solid. There is some handling noise when you use the unit, so you need to be careful with your hands when using the onboard mics. The interface is decent, but you need to dig through menus quite a bit when it comes to enabling options and features as the front panel is very simplified with just the transport buttons and a few other utility buttons like changing what the display shows and an options menu button. There's a roller knob on the side that controls your recording level and a rocker switch on the other side that controls your line out volume. The preamps are very quiet, especially for a handheld recorder in this price range. I use a Rode NT1A, NT3, and NT5 with a Denecke PS-1A as a power supply as my main microphones when recording sound effects in my studio. The results are clean and clear with low noise, definitely capable of professional quality recordings. I used a Zoom H4n briefly before buying the M10 and found both the mics and preamps quite noisy in comparison (though still usable!), so I returned that and purchased the M10. That said, the line out when using headphones is actually quite noisy, even when set to headphone mode, it's mostly only useful for simple monitoring. The display isn't very big, but the backlighting is sufficient and the volume levels take up a good portion of the LCD screen so they're easy to see even in low light situations. When using the onboard mics, there's actually two LEDs on the top left and right corners that will light up green or red to give you a quick reference for your volume levels as well. Two of my favorite features of the M10 are the exceptionally good battery life and the Cross-Memory recording. Sony handheld products in general are usually pretty good about battery life and the M10 is fantastic in this regard. Two AA batteries will power the unit for over 30-40 hours before you'll need to replace them. In real world time, this can end up lasting weeks or months unless you're doing very long recording sessions on a regular basis. The Cross-Memory recording will seamlessly switch from the internal storage to your MicroSD card once the internal storage fills up without stopping a take. A very handy feature that will give you some peace of mind during those really long recording sessions. The M10 has a built-in limiter and low cut filter to help reduce some wind and low frequency ambient noises, but it's not as configurable as some other handheld recorders in this price range that let you specify the frequency you want to cut at, it's just a simple on-off option. It's an awesome little recorder for not much money. If you can get past the lack of XLR and phantom power, it's an easy recommendation. It's small, has decent onboard microphones, quiet preamps, and some excellent quality of life features like the cross-memory recording and best-in-class battery life. Pros: + Great build quality + Superb battery life + Decent omnidirectional microphones + Quiet preamps + Cross-Memory recording so you don’t need to stop a take and switch from internal to external storage + Small and portable + Affordable (about $200-250 USD new) Cons: - No XLR or Phantom Power - Can only record in stereo - Some menu diving necessary to turn on and off features Read more on Audiofanzine

    Behringer V-Tone GMX112 - Fun Amp for Home and Beginners

    by aswilliams on 11-25-2014 04:39 AM The GMX 112 is a 60 watt analog modelling amp with a Bugera speaker. It has all of the effects that a typical guitarist could hope to use along with 3 amp models and different gain types. Visually, it is a pleasant amp to look at. I has a "vintage" look to it and color coded led lights for reference in low lighting. The knobs and decal on the front look cheap but I never had a problem with them breaking. On the front panel there are two sets of knob controls for drive, EQ (low, mid, high), and level for each of the 2 channels. To the right of these are controls for selecting and editing effects.

    XLN Audio Addictive Drums 2 Artist - Not happy at all!

    by almaloca on 11-25-2014 01:20 AM I will not give my opinion on the product since I could not try it! and for good reason, this version does not work in 32-bit because it is too greedy. Maybe, but then why not specify it in the product file?!? so far, no problem, I go to the dealer where I bought it, German magazine not to mention it, and was told that the software is not exchangeable or refundable. (Such as panties) after multiple exchanges with technicians at xln, we finally suggested that I switch to 64 bits. sincerely, that one, I could find my own! I have no desire to get into such a project, especially that my software is not all compatible with 64bit. that I did learn what use are trial versions! I still find it a bit contemptuous from xln not be clear about this. never mind, I returned home ez drum, and I am satisfied. Read more on Audiofanzine

    Rivera Rake Head 55 - The best of Rivera amps?

    by opa2134a on 11-24-2014 11:07 PM 55W all-tube, 80, pushed by 2xEL34 and five 12AX7 / ECC83 preamp. No grinder. Two low / Hi inputs, two outputs hp (selector 4/8/16), two channels (Fender / Marshall), with a very specific equa, and several types of voicing via push pull (mid notch, bright, boost) Presence of a potentiometer and a FOCUS (reply Hp), buffered effects loop with volume, a pro amp! FS7 a footswitch to change channels or trigger a boost (adjustable on mine) This amp gives a range of impressive, with the base a thick and rich sound, a huge pool of low medium, and never aggressive treble. The choice of cabinet is critical to get the most for my part, a closed 1x12 with a G1265 Rola, and an open baffle with a G12T85 UK. My fifth RIVERA, all the others, I have sold the one, I keep it!

    Applied Acoustics Systems Ultra Analog VA-1 - A Virtual Analog workhorse!

    by TreDay on 11-24-2014 11:02 PM Ultra Analog VA-1's installation and setup process uses a standard challenge and response registration system. Once you start to use it, the user interface is immediately familiar if you've ever used a Virtual Analog synthesizer. Everything is on one panel, there's no complex routing, and everything has very clearly labeled knobs. The manual also explains the functions well, should you need to reference something. The plugin is a little old at this point so the interface is actually a little too small for use on modern high resolution displays and that's definitely a concern for those with impaired vision.

    Eastwood Guitars Classic 12 - Walnut - very very good surprise for a ridiculous price

    by jibzeone on 11-24-2014 10:33 PM Semi-acoustic 12 string guitar built in Korea. Mine 2014 date ... I would have loved to fall on an old model Cygnus, but it does not grow on trees (those actively seeking a 12-string will agree) Adjust'o'matic type of bridge Channel thin enough for a 12 string (reminds me of my slim type les paul classic 12-string version so to speak) 2 types of microphones Gretsch FilterTron and co. Besides the guitar frankly evokes a certain gentleman contry of Mr. Harrison. Finally two tone knobs and 1 for the volume (still in the Gretsch mind). Guitar very well finished (I have known much more expensive with finishes made by piglets and many disappointing in other respects with regard to the price, it therefore comes into play for the note) Read more on Audiofanzine

    Hondo L-5 Fatboy - A beauty with perfect microphones

    by Jonasm on 11-24-2014 09:51 PM - In what country was she made? This is my model of a Hondo II FatBoy L-5 1981 (and not all short Hondo): in other words, it belongs to the second generation of the production of the brand, and is therefore Japanese. The Hondo factories were born in Korea in 1969 and then left for Japan in 1974 and will remain there until 1983, during which the plants back to Korea, where they were born: Clearly, this Japanese period represents the age of Gold Hondo, with beautifully crafted guitars, equipped with micro DiMarizo. The Hondo II Fatboy L-5 is also cited as the reference model. Hehe! - What type of race? Bolt typical guitars of the 50s a real highway. Ability to adapt a Bigsby vibrato types. - Frets? Pickups? 20 frets, though filed down. No hitches. Original DiMarzio (a bridge humbucker, a humbucker neck). An incredible meeting, hyper-typed and clean way. Jewelry. - Settings? 2 volume knobs, two tone knobs. Each microphone. Micro switch to activate one pickup / pickup + neck pickup / neck pickup alone. Read more on Audiofanzine

    Akai EIE Pro - A convenient interface

    by CerotoneSystem on 11-24-2014 09:43 PM The features that attracted me the most are: The number of inputs / outputs (4 mono or 2 stereo) XLR or Jack with insert behind the card and the level mic / guitar Line facade. The meters are very practical and true (although I feel it captures the master of the signal without effects on my ableton which can make typing in the red even with a limited eg ... ). The practical side of Headphone Select for the headphone output, a mix knob for the signal in or out or in between. Phantom power, and switch level mic / guitar. Gains of knobs. It covers the 16/24 bit and 44 kHz / 96 kHz. I turn to the config following: 2.8 GHz Intel Core i7 / 8GB 1333 MHz DDR3 Mac OS X mid 2011 (running in dual core 2x4 for now). Read more on Audiofanzine
