- ask away
hi, does anyone still use minidiscs for field recordings? i was looking at a digital field recorder (m audio, edirol) but find them still quite expensive and to be something i could easily break. field recorders are very cheap though i know the mechanics could be a bit outdated. is the sound quality useable and is there anything else i should know?
i make some recordings with a minidisc, but even if it is at the moment not the priority i will probably upgrade sometime to another device with flash card. mainly for easy transfer and the better microphone and line input connections. prices are going down these times...
i replaced my minidisc and a sm58 with one of these. Complete overkill for field recordings but its cheap enough to justify it and im happy to say its the absloute bollocks. The mic on it is surprisingly high quality and with a 2gb card I can get over 2 hrs wav recorded. Think it only cost me £130 or so too.
my sony minidisc has only a line input (no mic), which model do you own?.kavo. wrote:i wanna use my old but still well working sony minidisc for field recording also. don't wanna make another thread so i ask here, which microphone do you guys recommend to me?
