Portable & Field Recorders
Every musician should have a portable digital field recorder in their music bag. Sure, tape recorders were once a useful accessory for musicians to have on the road, but thanks to the many breakthroughs in technology, these convenient little gadgets have never been so versatile and functional.
Not only are modern field recorders high in sound quality and distortion-free, but they're loaded with features that the older tape recorders were incapable of providing you with, such as editing, looping, and even USB ports for transferring your recordings to a computer. For additional peace of mind, we only offer the world's most trusted audio brands... so whatever you choose from this section, you can bet that you've made an excellent choice.
For a great example of today's state-of-the-art portable recorder designs, any musician would benefit from owning the Zoom H2n Handy Recorder. A user-friendly package that fits right into your pocket, the H2n is Zoom's most innovative recorder to date. In fact, it's the first hand-held device that gives you Mid-Side stereo recording, a technique that combines a unidirectional mid-mic for capturing sound directly in front of you, and a bidirectional side-mic that grabs sound from the right and left. Another big seller is the Olympus WS 520M. Ideal for recording demos and even live performances, this recorder contains 8G internal memory, USB direct, a stereo mic and editing software. Plus, the WS 520M allows you to record and play back in MP3, WMA and PCM formats with pristine sound quality.
And these are just a couple of the many portable field recorder options available in this catalog, so take a look around and see for yourself. Whether you're taking a stroll downtown or touring across the country, we have the perfect solution for the next time a new musical idea hits you.
