    Question Recording sound effects... equipment...

    I found two interesting products (portable recorders):
    1) Edirol R1 (http://www.edirol.com/products/info/r1.html)
    and
    2) M-Audio Microtrack (http://www.m-audio.com/products/en_u...496-focus.html)

    Any1 uses one of these ? I would love to encourage my company to sponsor one of these for my work on sound effects....
    Maybe there are some other options in the price range up to 500$ ???

    any1 has some experience in this field ?

    I got the Tascam's PocketStudio5 around a year ago, it was $250.00 (pretty good deal).

    I'm looking for something only for Audio recording via mic.

    Do you have access to a laptop? If so you might wanna think about laptop USB/Firewire interfaces:

    If I get the job I'm furiously trying to make a sound design demo for, I'll probably invest in one of those myself. The MobilePRE is USB powered, has phantom power for condensers, two mic inputs as well as two stereo inputs, and has ASIO/MME/DX compatibility. Dealer sells it for $179, Scitscat.com sells it for $149; I think I might've seen it on Provantage for $129 too.

    I'm planning on using it with my MXL 990/991 pair.

    The Edirol R1 is a very handy size and the recordings using just the built in mics are passable, but its very flimsy. I used one a couple of months back for some field work and it didn't hold together too well!. The M-audio looks a bit more solid but I can't comment on it as I've not used it.

    If your sponsors are very generous then persuade them to go for a Fostex FR2. They're great field recorders. Marantz do a few nice machines too.

    I bought the M-audio Microtrack. Before I bought it I borrowed my friends Edirol R1. They both have excellent recording quality, but the microtrack is much smallet and less clunkly to opperate (the R1 is an unusal size kinda big). It was also less expensive than the R1. I use my microtrack all of the time. I love it.

    I use the R1, I have found it works great for field recording - but I use an external mic rather than the mics that are built in.

    Of course you can do via 1 or 2 mics.
