I'm still getting the "Livestat" pages moving between items on the site and Chrome is telling me that the site is "Not Secure".  Is it my end or a site issue?  Has anyone found a way to overcome?

Help needed
« on: December 19, 2016, 01:35:19 PM »
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
