best little recorder for recording rehearsals...

Postby hoytbasses » Thu Apr 10, 2014 7:31 am

HI:

so when it comes to recording, I'm a 2 track reel to reel vintage guy.......

I'm just starting a new project with two guys from my old band. we've had 3-4 rehearsals and it's heavy 3 part vocals. I'd like to record our rehearsals and burn them on to CD's for everyone to be able to go do some homework.

what's a good (cheap) recorder that I can maybe run through the board, or just set up with integral microphones that will work. sound quality isn't of prime importance.

School me please, bruthas

thanks

Karl

I think quite a few of us have Zoom H2 or later. Really simple to use and sound surprisingly good. There was a nice Tascam as the MF Stupid Deal of the Day not long ago...$99.

The Zoom stuff is great. I started with a H2 and a couple of years ago upgraded to the Q2HD - same audio capabilities, but with HD video as well.

So Karl, we must be on some kind of BABP wavelength...
I've got a Zoom H1 sitting in the closet getting dusty, never use it. I'll send it to you and you can check it out, if you want to keep it you can send me a couple guitar picks or used strings or something [smilie=food-smiley-004.gif] Ok?

EDIT: skip the picks. I've always been partial to used G-string(s) [smilie=grinning-smiley-003.gif]

i'm trying to think of some smart-ass response re the stolen picks, but my end-of-week brain is in vapor lock...

If I have lots of used G strings from nepharious circumstances, I'm putting them in a trophy case! (in my studio apartment because I will have been thrown out of my house)

I'm sorry, but if you two plan on this conversation going any farther, I'm going to have to ask you to leave.

don't you love how a benign discussion about a hand-held recorder turns into a sordid, double-entendre snicker-fest?

fun

Hey Karl, at our age we take excitement anywhere we can...right?
