For those of you who do field recordings for sounds to use in your work, would like to ask some questions.
What equipment do you prefer to use?
Prefer digital or analog?
Mono or stereo?
Anyone use the smaller handheld recorders (digital) and do you use the built-in mic(s) or use an external one?
Do you experiment using various bit rates and such?
I'm really wanting to start doing some field recording and I have a very limited budget. I was thinking something along the lines of the Zoom H1. I realize that some of the less expensive recorders use automatic record levels/gain that may be a problem.
Would like your input...
