Great, high-quality audio recorder

???, 12.10.2017
The mics on this recorder are incredibly sensitive to wind so a windscreen / wind muff is absolutely necessary if you're recording anywhere other than indoors or making recordings that involve moving the device.

Due to the mics' sensitivity, recording anything delicate can be compromised by the minutest of sounds generated by gripping the chassis, therefore I try to avoid touching the device at all during capture. This means that pressing any of the hardware buttons is a very audible event and so you may wish to purchase both the Tascam RC-3F/RC-10 remote and a tripod to combat these issues.

It can be powered via USB so it's ideal for use in conjunction with a power bank or computer. Good battery life. Samples WAV in 44.1, 48.0 and 96.0kHz. MP3 cannot do 96.0kHz. Use BWF MetaEdit to analyse BWF WAV recordings. Updating the firmware resets the capture count: 171012_0000.wav.

Despite not owning any accessories (I did make myself a windscreen however), the device does capture great recordings and there are some workarounds for handling noise such as pressing record a couple seconds before the source material begins, though if you're relying on the pre-recording buffer these noises would be unavoidable.

The screen can be bigger, and the options can be more simpler, but this is a great portable recorder, with a great sound mic build on it!
