    I finally picked up a field recorder: the Zoom H2.

    Unexpected bonuses

    * extremely aggressive automatic gain control on “voice mode”
    * 24/96 recording
    * incredibly light but not chintzy
    * features like automatic gain control work even when it’s in USB mic mode – ideal for skype etc.


    * UI is a bit fiddley, but not horrific
    * Showed up as a USB audio device fine the first time, then not again. Probably means I need to reboot.

    Overall… I’d rather have bought it at American than european prices, and it’s a good enough device to open up a good deal of new ground. Good kit.

    flattr this!
