I am recording industrial processes and mechanisms these days. I'm still getting the hang of it, and I'm trying to convince people I'm not spying on them, so for the moment I am using solely a Zoom H4n for the task.
However, I am planning on getting a mic or a pair of mics for this task in the near future. I have been going through a lot of discussions and blog posts, but I'm not sure what make/model or type I should get.
So I'm asking you, given that you are a helpful and knowledgeable lot. My budget for this is fairly limited at the moment, but I am looking for a decent setup, so I will set some finances aside just for this if needed. Given that I can use the Zoom as the recorder, I would only need the mic or mics for this. What would you guys get if you were me?
