Trying to find a decent audio/video recorder, something like the zoom products or equivalent. I know they no longer have the ZoomQ3HD, Any recommendations?
I concur. I have the R16 multi-track, and it isn't half-bad. It is kind of a drag that you can only use TWO condenser mics at a time (it only has two phantom-powered inputs), but there are workarounds if you have more condensers than that. I have a GoPro but need to check out that Q8.I have the q8. Really dig it. Very good audio from stock xy mic, plus two additional mic/line inputs make doing live recordings painless. If you are good with a daw, it's particularly good. Get a 64 gig card, and you'll have hours of video with separate audio tracks to mix later.
My band mate uses the 16 track all-in-one recorder, with great results also. That is a great way to go if u want the channels.
There's a bunch of places. But I meant more here. There's more and more topics on the subject, many of them the same, and they're strewn about multiple subforums.Homerecording.com has an excellent Drums and Percussion section that can answer these questions really well.
