If your content comes from offsite Interviews or is created on the field, a portable Audio Recorder is a must. Yes you can record with your Iphone or Smartphone, but what differs is the quality. If you want to sound professional with your outdoor recording and interviews, then the best thing to carry is a portable Audio recorder. A professional audio recorder makes a big difference to the quality of your Podcast and the editing opportunities before publishing your Podcast.
Here is the list of Professional Portable Audio Recorders for Podcasting.
- Tascam iM2 turns your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch into a high-quality stereo recorder. A pair of condenser microphones – the same high quality as TASCAM’s best-selling DR-series recorders – plugs into the dock connector of your Apple device.The microphones are adjustable over 180 degrees for the best sound placement. The uni-directional elements are arranged in an AB pattern for detailed stereo imaging while capturing the ambience of your room.The iM2 contains its own microphone preamp and analog-to-digital converter for low noise and great audio quality. Unlike mics that use the built-in iPhone preamp, the iM2 can handle up to 125dB sound levels to capture the loudest concerts and instruments without distortion.
- TASCAM’s DR-07mkII puts premium recording quality in the palm of your hand. Up to 96kHz/24-bit Broadcast WAV file recording provides better than CD quality to capture every detail. Record WAV or MP3 files to the microSD Card.
Like all TASCAM products, the DR-07mkII is simple to use with functions like two-button record and the Quick Menu for fast setting changes.
- On the road, I use the Handy H6 Recorder, which has a fantastic on-board mic for interviews, but also has four inputs for VGA mics I can use on-site at conferences and other events, so each interviewee has their own audio track. Easier to edit!
- With an infinite variety of applications, you’ll want to take your H1 everywhere. From musical performances, songwriting sessions and rehearsals to seminars, conferences, journalism or capturing audio for video, the H1 gives you clean, clear stereo sound effortlessly.
