help with my new Zoom H1
Need some help if you have experience with a Zoom H!. Basically, my questions can be summed up with "how do I use it?" I posted earlier about which device to buy, a Zoom or a Tascam, stating that I am seriously tech ignorant and wanted the most user friendly. Well, I ordered the Zoom H1 and it came today. I opened the package and I figured out how to put the battery into it and where the power button is, but that's about as far as I've made it. Included in the package there was something called a micro sd adapter, which apparently is a two part thing. One looks like a SIM card for your phone, the other is a muh smaller piece that seem to slide into the other SIM card looking thing. I have no idiea what these are for and whether they are necessary for the basic recording and playback features? Does the micro sd card have to be used in order for the basic record and playback features to be used? How is it plugged in to the recorder? What does "adjusting the input and output" levels mean? And what does "setting the recording format" mean? Reading the instructions, which appear simple, is confusing to me as it all seems like trying to read a language I don't know. I really just want to be able to flip a button to record and flip another to playback what I've recorded.
