  • What dictaphone do you recommend?

    I was into buyin new dictaphone last time. I found lot of these, but I would prefer to ask you about opinions, because most things i heard about them was written by persons who bought them to record lectures etc.
    Well, I didn't found discussion about recording equipment on this forum, but If there is any let me know and I will delte this.

    So what do You use to record, and what are You usually recording? Most of samples I make are coming out from guitars and unplugged guitar amplifer with some effects.
    Also, what microphone do You use?

    I have a Tascam DR-05, it has generally excellent sound quality though I've found if you want super quiet ambient recordings (waves, breeze through the trees and all that stuff) the mics can be a little noisy (or I haven't mastered the settings yet...) One custom mic builder (whose name escapes me) actually recommend this tascam as the basic sound quality is solid. Not had a problem recording normal level sounds.
    Latest release: never to be repeated

      I don't have a portable recorder, and am almost completely in-the-box currently.

      I use a Focusrite ISA-One preamp and a Presonus 44VSL interface.

      My mics aren't that awesome though--
      2 SM58,
      SM57(this and one of the 58's were bought in 1987),
      Sterling Audio ST77,
      AKG C1000S,
      MLX V63M,
      and an old Radio Shack mic from the 60's or early 70's.

        I have a Tascam DR-07mkII ... it's a great little recorder. Sound quality is excellent. As GaryG commented regarding his DR-05, outdoors can be a little challenging, particularly in windy conditions. I have bought one of those fluffy wind shields which helps. The recorder also has a low-cut setting which should help reducing the low end rumble produced by wind noise.
