Summary: Bought this after hearing good things from friends. I primarily use it for foley recordings and putting found sounds into music compositions. Will highlight some of my favorite features. 1/8 jack for earphones. Very helpful not just to hear what you've recorded, but essential to use while recording to get a feel for sweet spots and how well it records. It's also very useful if you're trying to adjust some of the settings to avoid recording a hum in a room for example.
Summary: Amazing. when I was doing videography on the cheap, I needed an external recorder. I brought this item. i had this item on the floor and dumb ditzy people who didn't watch where they were walking stepping on it, but because it has a metal housing, it's almost bulletproof. One of the great things about this unit is that it lasts a long time on battery power. The recorder comes with two rechargeable batteries, and they last a long time, days and weeks. no kidding.
Summary: I am still learning to use this. Purchased it for quality and voice commands. Writing music with a friend who is legally blind but can see the flashing light and solid recording light on record button. This works well for sight impaired but only after a sighted person learns it and teaches it .
Summary: I bought it 8 month ego and i use it a lot, indoor and outdoor. I found this item very easy to use meaning: to program it, recording with it and play. The voice quality most of the time is excellent, you need to program it otherwise it can be not smooth. The only thing that i have in mind to improve is the noise cancelling sponge that come with (it's falling all the time), and a decent carrying case which don't come with which is a bit pity cause it's not a cheap one.
Summary: Real good mics. Have a couple of things that kept it from 5 stars. You cannot erase just a portion of a track. It's all or nothing. I f you are recording(flute clarinet, sax) it's impossible to see the levels while playing other than the clipping activation light, this thing is tiny.There are many different effects like reverb and such but you can only add them on playback, you can't record with them.
