I played 3 shows in December with a band I was in in the 80's-90's. I put together a short video of footage my son took on his iPhone:

Spent the day on computers at a couple hotels, and now have to head to the neighbors to fix their WiFi.  I charge businesses, but I help all the local people for nothing.  They seem to like that...

Music Banter is two years older than us, and KAE is a year or two older.

And when I said "music website" below, I meant "music forums"...

I wondered if we might be the oldest music website still around, so I checked.  We're not the oldest, but we're one of the oldest.

Nice unit enjoy , wind sensitive if out side a good wind screen and some extra ladies stockings cut fit help to reduce the wind noise . It's also a battery eater so get used to that maybe get the AC charger . Other then that enjoy playing with it .:)

As Ag said, W, they do go through a battery charge.  If you're going to be recording for a while, and you're not anywhere close to a plugin while recording (to use a charger), it helps to have a portable USB battery backup/charger.  This will keep it going quite a while.

Also, I'm not sure about a choir and organ, but with a full band I find it's best to record from a little distance rather than close to the stage.  As long as there is no background noise it seems to record better that way.  Maybe you could test a short recording before the event.

And lastly, if you're holding on to the unit while recording, make sure you don't bump or tap the unit while recording, or brush anything against it.  Makes loud noises in the recording.

You'll have fun with it, though, and it does make great recordings.  Maybe we'll get to hear part of it?
