Out of tune recordings on Zoom


Recommended Posts

 

Wow, the H2 is half the price of the H4 (on amazon.fr), hmm, I could convince myself that I really need one.

Told you so. Al just bought the H4 for pose value.

Just got a stripy waistcoat (X Jazz Band) to go with my stripy socks.Zoom Man

Don't know what you mean Dirge.

We can sort this out really quickly if you like. Just record a single note, an A

for 20 seconds. Then convert it to an mp3 and if it is out of tune post it here

and we will be able to tell you exactly what is happening.

It records as an MP3 Shaun, there are a number of my recordings in the tune section , but happy to oblige.

I see that the H4 can record at 44.1KHz, 48KHz or 96KHz depending on how it is set up. My

thought at the moment is that if the batteries aren't flat then it is likely that it will

keep to the set recording frequency (in fact since it runs on a crystal clock it will probably

keep to the exact frequency even if the batteries are flat).

 

However if you record an mp3 at 48KHz then some mp3 playback programs may fail to play it back

at the correct speed, they may play it back at 44.1KHz. This would make everything sound flat.

Does everything sound flat? Is your H4 set to record at 48KHz, if so try changing it to 44.1KHz.

All this is just guesswork of course based on problems I have encountered in the past. It might

turn out to be some other weird H4 problem.
