Recording Devices For Sessions
I’m looking to buy a decent recording device, mostly for sessions (and occasionally for practice at home). Using my cell phone has been okay, but not great.
Recently went to Long & McQuade to check out what sorts of things were available. One that stood out to me was the Zoom H2N, which seems really good, though I wondered if it might be overkill for a session. They had a more basic model as well, the Zoom H1N.
A thread here from about a decade ago (https://thesession.org/discussions/24844 ) had many people recommend the H2N for sessions. Is this still one of the better devices in the market, at this price range or lower (~$250 CAD)?
Sessions I’ve been to tended to range from 5-15 players, usually dominated by fiddlers, and in descending order of appearance: flutes, concertinas, accordions, whistles, mandolins, uilleann pipes, banjos, and, with usually at least one guitar player per session + sometimes a piano or a bodhran.
I’ve been playing high D & C whistles, and, recently purchased a low D whistle. Will eventually branch out to mandolin, bodhran, and perhaps a few other instruments.
