this will catch the sounds for you. great place to start.
32 gig card size will give you loads of recording time.
the tripod mount will allow you to get the unit up of the table and into the area you need it to be.
a boom mike stand with an adapter to fit the threads on the tascam unit would be a good idea.
there is an archive of some of the sounds i've recorded over the years on the player on my page.
it's a bit like building cbgs the more you do it the better it gets..
these are recorded on a Tascam?. If so. really nice sound. thanks
most of these were recorded using a roland cd-2 with various numbers and types of microphones.
the tascam you are looking at will work fine to get you started.
if you listen to "rising sun" on my player, it was recorded using the internal(built in) mikes on the recorder. that should give you an idea of the quality of sound you can expect to start with.
i recorded it right when i opened the box. set it on the table and grabbed a guitar.
I am looking at a Zoom H4n. I've done some research on it and it sounds really cool to me. Check it out at ZZounds.com.
Keep on slidin'
i have the Tascam Dr05 and couldn't be happier with it. for the price the sound quality is great and more important its easy to use
Add me to the list of Tascam owners. I picked one up to record my Dad and our family history. Works great on a camera tripod or as was pointed out above, you can get an adapter for a mic stand. The two mics are pretty sensitive and will do a decent job.
