With a decent FTP program (I use "Core FTP") it's kind of easy to check and see if any files on the site have been updated that shouldn't have been just by checking the file dates...

Ag, I did find one of the forum files that had a modification date of just a few months ago, which it shouldn't have.  So I checked and it had a hack line in it.  I took that out, and just waited to see if it helped at all...

I've kinda found myself being asked to record some outside events. Something I'm not too well up on and I am wondering if anyone here can recommend some reasonably priced equipment and perhaps give me a few tips on recording techniques.
Thanks in advance.

Tho I have to head ot the door for 5 days in a few, here are some questions that will help...

1. Is it music or voice (like a play, etc) that you are recording?

2. Do you NEED stereo, or can it be Mono and still be acceptable?

3. Will there me a mixing board at the events, and if so will you have access to it?

4. What are you going to record it with? Will it be a laptop, or will you need to buy a recorder?

That should give some of us the info needed to help ya out....or at least ask more questions! LOL!

1. Is it music or voice (like a play, etc) that you are recording? Mainly a choir of about 15 voices

2. Do you NEED stereo, or can it be Mono and still be acceptable? Stereo would be best

3. Will there me a mixing board at the events, and if so will you have access to it? Nothing like that

4. What are you going to record it with? Will it be a laptop, or will you need to buy a recorder? I have a laptop but I don't like the mic in it. If you can suggest better mics? but I'm sure someone was talking about some portable recorders a while back/

I use the Zoom H2 which has been replaced with the Zoom H2n. Check it out. Excellent quality recording but a little bit of a learning curve.

yep.  Zoom H2n is a great device,  great for outdoor or any acoustic recording really.  Its a little pricey.  has great microphone setup built-in in to the device.

H4n is a great unit there's newer models but you've heard some tunes by done on it I'm sure . Besides it's built in multi directional Mics it offers 2 XLR/ TRS Phantom powered jacks stereo , effects 4 track .

Then if you need video this might work you might be able to do audio only as well .



As to tips I think you got recording down pat ! As with all new gear just getting used to it is the thing . The zooms as a stand alone are preatty much point and shoot . There's head phone jack so you can monitor on the H4N I assume the other models as well .

I use a camera stand the H4n mounts well never tried but I will one day when I have balls enough to take my condenser Mics outside lol
