I just bought one of these.So the app controls playback mode?

Yes it does. But, much more important, it can be used for remote control while recording.

Does it stay in this mode on reset?

On reset of what?
What I was thinking is that the app controls not the recording (that is always four channel), but what kind of mix it outputs to the (stereo) monitor output.In that case I was wondering if I set it once (with the app) if it would restore to that setting next time I powered it up (without the app running).

I'll probably be using stand alone, or as a four input USB device.

Four input USB device...? The H3-VR doesn't have inputs. It can only record its own microphones.
Yes, four input USB device.  Four microphone inputs.  Take those and put them into a plug in.
I don't have a phone unfortunately.

Yes. Once set, it comes up with the same settings on next power-up, if that's what you mean.

Basically, all the usual menu settings to be made at the unit via the various menus can also be made via the app which makes things a lot easier for those of us who have probs with the Zoom's tiny display. Once made, all settings remain and survive after powering the unit down and up again, irrespective of whether the app is running or not.

Just noticed one thing, a few days ago: when I play back my recordings using the supplied Zoom software on the Mac in 5.1 mode there is no signal in the rear Ls and Rs channels. Exporting the same recording as a 5.1 wav file, all six channels have signal. Can anyone confirm this odd behaviour?

Quoting myself here to let people know that I've exchanged a few mails and files with Zoom NA and they have confirmed today that there is indeed a bug in the Zoom Ambisonic Player. With a little luck it should be fixed in the next update.

Zoom have just published an update for their Ambisonics Player and the prob with the missing rear channels has been solved.

It can be found here:
https://www.zoom-na.com/news/AmbisonicsPlayer

Never before had an update by a major manufacturer made especially for me... :-)
