28Feb Tascam DR-40 Firmware – Independent Levels


Tweet
Did Tascam just drop a bomb on the Zoom H4n? The more affordable Tascam DR-40 is a great little recorder, but fell short when people realized you didn’t have the same independent audio track levels like a Zoom H4n. The new firmware released today (found here), now adds that functionality to the Tascam DR-40. It [...]

When it comes to portable recorders with DSLR video, there’s two names that are sure to come up – Tascam and Samson (a.k.a Zoom).

12Jul Zoom upgrades the H2 with H2n


Tweet

Zoom is upgrading the H2 with a new H2n. The black finish and retro condenser microphone styling is a big plus for my taste, but it’s neither pocketable nor does it have all the features of the H4n.

11Jan Sescom Line2Mic Cable for Audio Recorders

Super Clamp with Zoom H4n
The Zoom H4n is a great audio recorder and much cleaner floor noise than the H1. Whenever possible (which means when i’m not lazy) I try to break it out as the primary sound recording device. One problem is finding a place to put it. I usually move the microphone off [...]
