audio recorder to replace 4hn Zoom
on Oct 16, 2012 at 8:58:28 pm

Hi.

My Zoom 4hn is on its last legs and I'm looking for a replacement/upgrade. Zoom
was OK, except the battery died on a few occasions mid-interview (or was shutoff
without stopping) which corrupted the file and I want something that won't do
that, with either a battery backup, or one that constantly rights the header
info...I;ve been looking at a few options:


1) Tascam dr100mkii

2) Tascam HDP2 A lot more but mabye Worth the extra $? Is it becoming obsolete since its been around so long...

3)rolland r26

Any users of these models out there who can advise? thanks.

I went from a 2 track H4 to a 6 track Tascam DR-680, and the Zoom H1. For me the larger recorder is great, I like having a lot more tracks to work with and was tempted to get the Tascam 100, but would have needed two of them, so the 680 was the one I chose.

I found two tracks limiting and did not want to get a mixer, I would rather have separate in production and mix in post.

So pleased to hear some one say this.

"I would rather have separate in production and mix in post."

Thats not loud enough. Needs to be shouted so people hear it.
All dubbing mixers the world over together.

"I WOULD RATHER HAVE SEPARATE IN PRODUCTION AND MIX IT IN POST."

Amen.

Nb I dont object to a mixed scratch track for the editors tho. Theyre a simple breed.

"I would rather have separate (tracks) in production, and then mix in post"

That is what I should have said, I posted without reading my sentence!

Staying with two tracks, Marantz PMD-661. I love it. Had Zoom, it died, bought HDP2, great sound, too big, also interface was 'old'. 4 channell, love the Edirol. For best quality at highest price, save up for Sound Devices. Holds value longest.

I use a mixpre-d for premix, and monitoring when shooting with Hdslr.Excellent unit, worth the price.

Mixing both at shoot and in post are good (g).
