monitoring problem with distance recording

Our brilliant singer has moved to Malta! The plan is that I send backing tracks and she records. Then she sends me the results for mixing in UK.

With the current setup (using Zoom) we can chat & discuss until she starts recording. But THEN I can’t hear the backing so I get no sense of how everything’s fitting together.

So the problem is how do I, as her producer, hear both her vocals and the backing track so we can discuss afterwards what worked and what didn’t?

Need more than 4 tracks on Zoom h4n

Is it possible to record more than 4 tracks on the h4n in MTR mode?  I would think bouncing to on mono track would allow you to add 3 more overdubs, bounce again and add 3 more. I have a project due tomorrow that requires 4 violins, 4 violas, 1 piano and 1 vocalist. I cannot get the h4n to open the bounce file nor does it open when I change the name to trk1-00 (the default name for track 1).  I can do each 4 instrument group and combine  them in Logic on my Mac but I was hoping to avoid that. Doing the recording and not hearing all the parts is not ideal. 

Advice for Zoom call music lesson setup

We give music lessons via Zoom calls and achieve good quality sound by using a mixer as the "microphone" in Zoom.
One of our students wants to have the same setup, however, I've hit a snag in my mind for what to tell him. The three components are microphone, guitar, and backing track. All three go into the mixer, and then we USB out from the mixer to the computer and use that as the microphone in the Zoom settings. Simple.

Need help with Zoom/Headphones setup

We're doing music lessons via Zoom. I'm recording video via a camcorder connected to capture card. And using USB output from a ZED10FX mixer (voice mic, guitar and backing track) as the "mic" in Zoom. Using a TV as a monitor for the presenter to see the student. And using the speaker in the TV for the student's audio. So the presenter is just looking at the TV screen and hearing the student from the same TV.

Zoom H1 weird stereo issue on speakers

I started recording with the Zoom H1 but noticed a weird issue when I played it back on the speakers (Macbook Pro)

The right speaker (channel) was way more dominant than the left.

So I split the channels to test it out.. now there's a clear difference between the left and right channel, even though visually it looks almost identical in Audition.
And the worst thing is, the playback sounds different on the Macbook speakers, on my iPhone and also on headphones.

This is the sample recording: http://voca.ro/j06l4WLhveW

Recording from Amplifier to Zoom H5

I'm filming a conference in Oslo next month, and I've just been given some photos of their sound system. http://imgur.com/a/iR9xc. I can get more on request. I am not familiar with this type of system at all. I have a Zoom H5 I would like to record to.

Questions:
Both the receiver and the amp have line out...which should I use?

What XLR (or other) cable do I need? Male to Male?

How will I know if it's a line signal or a mic signal? How much should I pad my H5?

Saw this on facebook and thought that it would solve my current situation if getting some songs recorded with video.

It does both. But is the video really good? I am thinking I might still have to use my focusrite and record.

Any thoughts?

Zoom F8 Multitrack Field Recorder

Zoom released this last year and want to know if anyone's made any recordings using it for music or video, and if so any thoughts on quality, functionability, pros and cons. Some of the reviews I've read are saying the pres are nearly if not "just as clean" as the Sound Devices 744T, and more than 4x less expensive than the SD.
