"To activate Bluetooth on the H3 recorder, open ...

"To activate Bluetooth on the H3 recorder, open the home screen on the H3, press "Menu" and select "BTA-1." Once you are in the BTA-1 setting, you can turn Bluetooth on or off. When Bluetooth is on, your iOS device should be able to see the Bluetooth transmitter on the H3." ------- I have installed BTA-1 on recorder, it appears on menu, I have turned on. H3 presents password when I power up but ... there isn't a password entry field on the H3 app. I've tried a little bit of everything but none of the "buttons", menu items are active on H3 app. It doesn't present password field and after few seconds shows 'disconnected' . How do I get H3 app to present password entry field ? thanks ! ?
Asked by: Tom
We would recommend reviewing the following before attempting to pair the iOS device to the H3. First, please make sure the bluetooth function is turned on within the iOS settings. Then please make sure the device is not already paired to another bluetooth device, this would hinder the pairing process. Next, please make sure the two device are close together and away from other bluetooth enabled devices. Finally, when attempting to pair, make sure to only launch the app after the H3 gives you a passcode. If the above process has been followed and still nothing works, then we recommend reaching out to Zoom at (631) 542-5270.

When connected to a Zoom H8, am I able to use the ...

When connected to a Zoom H8, am I able to use the device as a USB mic and record to a DAW using the BTA-1?
Asked by: Ricky
The BTA-1 allows you to monitor and control the H8 remotely and wirelessly from an iOS device via Bluetooth. You can use your iPhone or iPad to monitor level meters and press record, play, and stop in each H8 application mode. While the BTA-1 will provide remote monitoring and control of the H8's functions, it will not enable connection of the H8 to your computer or control of the DAW. But you can use the H8 as a USB audio interface with the onboard mic capsule or with external microphones to record audio to your DAW.
