Is there a setting to change that will send the recorded file to the music folder?

Hit the "option" button, scroll down to "Recording Folder" and choose between "Built-In Memory" or "SD Card."

I further recommend that you (once again using the "Option" button) go to "Cross-Memory REC" and choose "Yes."  You will need a micro-SD card in the A10 for this to work.  By choosing "Yes" you are setting your recorder up to switch from the A10's internal memory to the SD card (and vice versa).  So for example, if you are recording to internal memory and run out of space, on the fly, the S10 will automatically switch over to the SD card.  Of course, this will result in a split audio file; but the recording will still be seamless.

I have all that set, but it puts the music into the voice folder!

I don't think so. Music folder is for stuff you want to use for playback.
Ya know you can pair the A10 with a bluetooth receiver and stream music right out of the A10? Great for checking on the way home...

Thanks Morst!  That was what I was thinking.  I vaguely remember the M10 putting recordings in a different folder as well.  It has been a while.

It would be slick to put some test signals in the music directory, in case you ever wanted to check the output while setting up a patch out?!
Label them like
Pink Noise -10dB peak
Sine Sweeps -20dB peak
1000 Hz Tone - 10 dB


Hm. But when do I ever have a patcher?

my 9V battery was dead in my preamp so I had to use the mic-in on the A10 with my Ca14's.  It turned out pretty well!  I set it on medium.

wow, were those old school hearing aids or the newer cheaper devices now allowed to be classified as "hearing aids" per recent legislation?

I'm not not familiar with the newer cheaper devices now allowed to be classified as "hearing aids" - but I have new hearing aids that are bluetooth and are basically hearing aids / high quality earbuds.  They aren't cheap though IMO; they would have been $2K each when I got them two years ago, but (fortunately) I get them free through the Veterans Administration.  I never wear my hearing aids to shows though, so I can't say if they interfere with my A10.
i think the reclass has to do with allowing the cheaper, not-fit-by-qualified-audiologist class of hearing devices as "hearing aids" is a semantics thing for insurance

theyre just starting to roll out

https://www.msn.com/en-us/lifestyle/shopping/hearing-aids-available-over-the-counter-starting-in-october-here-e2-80-99s-what-you-should-know/ar-AA12tLtP

I have come to realize there are shockingly high number of older people who can't hear for shit.  And a lot of them can't afford $2K (each) for hearing aids.  So that's good news about the cheaper versions becoming available.

Side story: my wife was born deaf in one ear.  She was told it was because of nerve damage and was permanent.  A couple of years ago, we were at Sam's Club and the audiologist there was doing free hearing tests.  It took some prodding, but I finally got my wife to give it a shot.  The lady did some testing and then inserted a hearing aid in my wife's ear.  You should have seen the look of surprise and amazement on her face when she heard through that ear for the first time.

That's so awesome.  I always tear up when I watch Matt Nathanson's music video for "Headphones".  You should give it a watch :)

A possibly novel use for the A10 - as part of a tiny camera rig.  I've simply attached an Insta360 Go 2 beneath it via the tripod thread and tomorrow I will hope to give it a try in the street.  The Go 2 video quality is surprisingly good, and totally stable, but the audio is mono and... indifferent sounding.  Also, like all these small cameras, it suffers from wind noise and there's not much that can be done about that.  I tried the H2N with the Go 2 today, but discovered that it is impossible to walk with the H2N without getting some kind of handling noise - it sounds like the mics are rubber mounted but bounce around a bit.  Clearly intended for fixed-position use.  The A10 however seems to be ok in that respect as long as it's held without moving my fingers on it.

To be honest, although I've had the A10 for a long time, I've barely used it.  I only discovered tonight that it's possible to memorise a couple of standard setups for quick recall without having to think about each setting (at my age, not having to think is kind of important...)

Hmmm.  Even with its dead kitten fitted, the A10 suffers badly from wind noise even on a day which wasn't particularly windy.  While it can be minimised with multiband compressioni, it's just not worth it.  The stereo image is excellent, but it's definitely and indoors-only device when using the built in mics.  Well, it was worth a try.

Now that's a much more serious cat!  Thanks for the tip!
