i had a bit of a scare yesterday when my minidisc appeared to be dead.
turns out the battery has just died, so it won't hold a charge, but
i can still use it using the external battery pack. but it got me
thinking about maybe upgrading to a digital recorder.
the zoom h4 is probably out of my price range, but i'm considering the
h2. so i wondered if anyone had any experience using either of these
with external mics? i know they have built in mics, but i have good
external mics that i'd like to be able to use. i recall that bill
hines had some problems early on using his h4 with external mics,
though i believe that was a firmware issue that was later fixed.
if anybody has any experience with this, or with the h2/h4 in general,
i'd be glad to hear about it. any thoughts about tradeoffs between
the two would be helpful, as well. i just want to record, so the
effects offered by the h4 are not of interest to me.
Optimism and pessimism don't exist for me.
I'm a blues man. I am a prisoner of hope.
I'm going to die full of hope.
