Summary: I do a lot of recording- in the studio, at home, on location. But I had the challenge to record my daughter's high school choir in churches and halls in Europe. Knowing that I needed the least amount of equipment possible (I would have to carry it with me), I began researching last summer. At one pro store, I was asked the odd question of "do I have good mics". I said "yes". He said that if I didn't, this one would be the best choice.
Summary: I have tested various other portable recorders from Zoom and Tascam. For me this is the best till date. With this I can record 6 tracks at time (3 stereo tracks), and the best part is i can take those tracks to my PC and mix it again. I am using it for my short movie soon with Rode NTG2. The best portable recorder I come across.
