Heres a few quick and very basic sound clips on my PPT mp.1 is at a gig so you hear what its like on a good rig,and 2 clips are very very basic,just put on cd and pressed record on the zoom and played so no effects,tracking nothing so its rather raw but gives a ruff idea on it.

I found myself in a similar acoustic situation recently with my H1.

Try using a multiband compressor to get rid of that snare drum.

Not looked at the zoom yet.Just got it,pressed record.It is what it is,a quick raw demo of the PPT.As for the snare drum the zoom was 4 foot behind the band on the stage and not out front so i think on that it still recorded well and again its just a ruff idea how the mp sounds on a gig for me.

That piece sounds great for that kind of music, but the bottom end is missing from the recording. I am still experimenting with the zoom, and sometimes recordings can be really good.

Sounds good Davey! It's a nice piece. Seems to subtone well.
Cheers me mucka.As said its very raw recording.Had the zoom 2 days,just hit the button and blew just to show how versitile the PPT is and this is not a review or finished thing.In the flesh the PPT is more fatter and does have a huge bottom end.Plus on the live clip i wanted to show how fat the altissimo notes are.Plus i'm a modern player and not Ben Webster and i always like atad cut,edge and that zing to my sound.

This doesn't just showcase the mouthpiece, but your abilities as a fine player. Nice work. Yea, plenty of zing in there.

Also shows how flexible the PPT is sound wise. But I'm biased, even if mines an old plastic one... lol

Cool sounds Davey, - i think the H2N is an amazing piece of kit. I too have recently acquired one, and was really impressed at the quality of the recording, having not even read the instruction manual and just pressed record. For live 'on the go' recordings, it does a great job for what is a little over a hundred quid. - would'nt mind hearing more of your sounds once you've cracked the intruction manual - i for one find the technical stuff a total head#!*%

Good davey! Really good. The balance between you and the band sounds good - if you could quieten the drummer a touch... (asking the impossible, I know).

Loads of energy there Davey. The Zoom has recorded you well and I really like your sound on that piece.

PS Was the Zoom inside the snare drum ?

Ha ha, yes the dreaded snare demon.We where in a large circle with the number of people in the band so the sound is all over the shop.I just stood the zoom 3 feet behind me and pressed record so theres no true mix sound.I only wanted to hear myself really >:) as for the PPT its a great mix of sounds of all the mps i like and its such an easy blower and reed friendly.Well done Pete and Morgan Fry i say :welldone

Once again fine playing and lots of excitement. Was the Zoom in the same placement (behind?). Would be a good idea to get the zoom out front and centre so that you get some idea of the mix the audience would hear. The zoon is very good that way as it won't favour any instrument. If the drum comes up as strong out front, it's worth playing that back to the drummer. No matter that he's the boss, if he's a real musician he should adjust. If he doesn't, well, says heaps and I'd be thinking about another band, especially with your ability.
