(+ Music Meeting planning for the November Meeting)

This meeting is dedicated to learning about a new field recording technology from ZOOM Corp, Japan and our in-house test results. Among its unique features are its low cost, $650.

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-TB, 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 ensure 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
