I'm a sound production student and i'm looking into doing quite a lot of loud effects recordings i.e car tyre screeching, engine recordings aswell as some outdoor speech recordings and crowd "walla". I'd like the ability to record a wide range of volumes without being to specific to one set up, if you get me! I'm now in the market for a suitable set up (on a student budget) that could perform well over all.
I have access to some Zoom portable recorders but id really like to get myself a decent kit that could be used in more situations. Along what lines should I be looking and what prices should I expect to pay?
Appologies for any newb questions, and thanks for any help in advance!
