Re: [podcasters] Re: Mobile Podcasting using the Edirol R1 portable recorder
I bought the Yamaha MG8/2 which is reasonably priced with great mic pre-amps...but this is just my opinion (everyone has one). In that vein, try going to harmonycentral.com or zzounds.com where people who have bought mics / recorders etc... rate the products preformance. Lots of info there.

aint a bad little device for what it can do. Should of
bought one myself. I just hit record, and let the
tools I have do their respective tasks.

Except I couldn't call it crap. It was called
"economical". But I would have easily sold a Mackie
VLZ or Onyx series. Allen and Heath, or Trident audio.
But all those are overkill for your application. The
closest thing I can think of that you could use, and
is a really quality piece of gear, is made by Rane.
Great single space rack mountable mixer. Street price
about $340.00. Again though, I think still overkill.
The right tool for the right job. You need
portability, ease of use, functionality, and quality
in one box. And you already know your options there.
The recording equipment industry has not caught on to
podcasting yet, but they are aware of it. I have
already spoken to one company about a podcasters
needs, and hope something will come of it. It takes
quite some time to research, develop, and create a new
product, so we have to use what they have right now.
Hope this helps.

abandoned that market. Not that it matters, if the recorders work
well, I guess it doesn't matter but I do wonder ...
The model that really matters is the one that people have in
their minds. All other models and documentation exist only to
get the right model into the right mind at the right time.
