Aren't you planning to get an iPhone? If so, there are apps that should work for this. I have "Record" which is too sensitive to record loud music but would probably be good for interviews. You can email the recordings to yourself or transfer them if they're too long.

Still vouching for the Zoom stuff - there is a new H4n that adds some features (um and is more expensive)

Just about to release album comprised fully of binaural field recordings from a Zoom H2, so repping for that. Lent it to a friend also who got good results for recording some interviews.

zoom still wins price/performance battle hands down imo

which one, h2 or h4?

am0n, Saturday, 13 March 2010 21:30 (eleven years ago) link

both really, just depends on what your needs are

First and Last and Safeways ™ (jjjusten), Saturday, 13 March 2010 22:48 (eleven years ago) link

H2: Better in built mics, smaller, cheaper, can record surround sound.
H4: Works as a four-track recorder.

the new edirols are nice. seems like the same thing as the zoom.

Tracer Hand, Thursday, 18 March 2010 11:38 (eleven years ago) link

except twice as expensive. not heard about quality comparisons. could the edirol really be twice as good?

Tracer Hand, Monday, 22 March 2010 18:14 (eleven years ago) link

still interested in H2 vs Edirol

so i actually have a film project that will require a field recorder. collaborator has an H1, and we're both shooting video on GF1s (because that's what we've got). it's cheap, it syncs well with video apparently, and i guess maybe there's something to be said for keeping our equipment consistent? basically tell me why i ~shouldn't~ get the H1?

H1 is fine for a basic hand held stereo recorder. If you want more features, ability to use powered electret condensors, record in 48/24 (or even 96/24) etc I'll continue to recommend the H2. Mine (mentioned upthread) is still going strong.
