NEW DATE: Sunday, AUGUST 4, 2019

Time: 6:00 PM – 9:PM

Featuring: Jim Doucas and his ZOOM F6 Digital Recorder

This meeting is dedicated to learning about a new field recording technology from ZOOM Corp, Japan.

What’s new about this technology is the ZOOM F6 FIELD RECORDER. It is a low-cost 6-channel digital recorder with a dynamic range in excess of 120 dB! It is small – 4” w x 4 .7” deep x 2.5” tall; it weighs about a pound, can take AC, or 4-AA batteries internally or a Sony L type camcorder battery. It can handle SDXC cards up to 1-Tera byte, potentially recording all day, and it is totally portable. Jim Doucas will demonstrate his recorder/player and present test results we ran at Foster’s Test Bench to insure it is living up to specifications, and supply what we know about how ZOOM implemented this design.

Refreshments will be available at 5:30 PM

— Webmaster's note: When using any good device such as this (e.g. anything that costs money) NEVER use alkaline batteries: ONLY use Energizer Lithium as they will *essentially never leak and will operate -40 to 140 degrees F which means your car in winter or summer with no expensive surprises.
* Nothing in life is perfect.
