RE: [Harp-L] zoom h2/h4 with external mics?
I'm using the m-audio microtrack so twasn't me Garry! I think I remember
that post by someone though, I guess the archives would yield it
eventually. I like the microtrack, easy USB connectivity, etc. I guess
it's comparable to the H2 which a lot of folks like. It sounded to me
like the H4 was bigger than I wanted to carry around for capturing
shows, work stuff, etc. I figured I'd rather just use one of the
digitech units for mixing/recording or something when (if) I ever get
Go digital. Not having to worry about discs and all that is great. I've
got a pretty big memory card (4gig Hitachi Microdrive) so I can record
forever and ever, and just plug into the computer with USB and my stuff
is right there in an explorer window in MP3, WAV or whatever format I
recorded too. I did buy some better mics from microphonemadness.com -
flexible stalk mics. And an attenuator for those high volume situations
(which is basically all of them, haha).

Subject: [Harp-L] zoom h2/h4 with external mics?
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.
