For my assignment, I have chosen to use the Zoom H2N dictaphone for my sound. This is because earlier in the semester we were given a workshop where we all tried out different technologies that capture sound.
3 that we trailed out
I chose the Zoom as it definitely gave the best quality of sound when practicing and it is very portable and small. The Zoom H2 features a built-in W-XY stereo microphone with five mic capsules, allowing front cardioid (90°), rear cardioid (120°) and 360° polar patterns. The result is brilliant stereo recording with natural depth and accurate imaging. A 3.5mm headphone jack is provided for you to monitor the recording.The Zoom H2n features ‘Mid-Side recording’ – this combines a uni-directional Mid mic that captures sound directly in front of you and a bi-directional Side mic that captures sound from your left and right. By increasing or decreasing the level of the Side mic, you can control the width of the stereo field, which gives you incredible flexibility over your recordings. If you record in RAW mode, you can even adjust the stereo width after recording.
