Howdy all – I’m looking to buy some sort of digital recorder to record rehearsals, both for my own review, and so I can play the recordings back for my group to hear and learn from. If we rehearsed in, or had easy access to, a large space where I could get some distance between the recorder and the group, I might be able to get a balanced sound. As it is, recording with (say) a digital video camera in the classroom where we meet doesn’t work very well. Does anyone know how I might be able to make this work? Suggestions would be welcome.
I really love the Zoom H4N for this purpose. It records to a removable card but can also be connected through a headphone jack to a speaker system for faster playback. Recordings are in stereo and of quite nice quality. It can also mount to a standard tripod like one you’d use for a camera.
ZOOM H4n is a great recorder but you still run into the same issue with balanced recording. I’d recommend the ZOOM H6 with 4 choral drop mics Audio-Technica PRO 45 Cardioid Condenser Hanging Microphone so you can record 6 tracks. Play them back a single project.
