Hooke audio website

Accessibility Advocacy

Hey guys,
If you haven't visited:

You should check it out, as it now includes what you get in the box when you receive your hooke verse, and more. I checked it out earlier and I love the layout, much more accessible! No word on the app yet, but hopefully it'll be available soon. For right now, I think it's still on it's final beta testing, but I'm not sure, as they haven't posted anything on their Facebook page.

Great! I'll give it a look. I was disappointed in the lack of actual technical specifications for the microphones, the last time I checked, which is also when I ordered one. Hopefully a reorganized Website means they will also be shipping units soon.

Chris, Hooke Audio hasn't yet provided sufficient technical specs so as to warrant shelling out almost $250 on Hooke Verse -- IMO. While the product sounds great and I do covet such a thing, it doesn't help much when we don't have the specs of the mics -- their SPL and noise floor. Moreover, Hooke Audio doesn't talk about the presence or absence of low-cut filters or limiters in the iOS/Android apps -- these are very important for such a recorder. Another issue is lack of info about whether or not the Hooke Verse can also record in mono and in normal stereo -- 3D Audio isn't really suitable for all circumstances, and such a recorder should be able to record in more conventional modes via its smartphone apps. And, last but not least, it ticks me off to see Hooke Audio guys keep retweeting links to the articles they wrote in 2015 and 2016 about 3D Audio and keep ignoring our Twitter questions about the issues I raised above. Hope to hear from them soon as that will pave the way for ordering the product.

I orderd the hooke 2 years ago, just after the kickstarter campaign ended. So I can not read the kickstarter updates that are posted on that platform. I hope I will get my Hooke very soon.
