New Toys

We all like new toys to play with, especially when they are some sort of techie gadget. Well, I got one such thing last week. The Zoom H4 is a handheld 96k 24bit digital recorder. I love it! So far, I've used the direct inputs to record our band's rehearsal straight off the board, and used the built-in stereo mics to record some toilet flushes, crickets, and basement noise. I'm excited to try out the 4-track mode to record some things in a surround fashion. Although I'm just getting to know the H4, I look forward to the possibilities it will provide for recording. I will post a few audio samples in the next blog.
