Choosing an Audio Recorder
First determine how many speakers you are recording and how you will be using the recording afterwards. If you are editing the audio afterwards, be sure to record each speaker with a separate mic and select a recorder with enough mic inputs.
Below are recommended recorders for different scenarios:
Recording two speakers with separate mics and high quality recording is needed: Zoom H5 (Two XLR inputs, one 3.5mm input) Zoom H6 (Four XLR inputs, one 3.5mm input). Cables, additional microphones and stands loaned separately.
Recording three or more speakers with separate mics: Podcasting Kit with Zoom PK 4 (Four XLR inputs)
Recording music or soundscapes: Zoom H6 (MS Mic Recommended)
