Default Re: Recordings made with ZOOM H2

Go to the link in my sig. The first song The Lightning Thief is done with an H2.

Its capable unit that’s limited (for the most part) by the user.
This recording took hours of placement and placement is key!
Not just mic placement but relational placement with all instruments. I considered the drums to be fixed but EVERYTHNG else was moved tested and moved again.

It’s very realistic if you will. The bass entering into distortion in begining is not the mic overwhelmed (it havs variable gain) but how the amp was set up. Modeling guitar amps rather than nice tube amps sound like that…. It’s not the H2

You will find MUCH better stuff recoded with an H2 on youtube so just do a serch.

I recorded my latest video with the Zoom H2:


I placed the unit in front of the kit, roughly four feet away and three feet high. I used the front microphones and a low gain setting. I didn't process the audio in any way other than syncing it up with the video. Be sure to watch in HQ to improve the sound quality.
I play Kumu Drums. I also shoot videos.
