Hey folks. For those of you who do a lot of recordings on the go, how do you strategize being prepared? I'm not satisfied with my GO! set-up, which is hyper-minimalist:
I carry a Zoom H4 with me at almost all times, and use the onboard mics. Which aren't bad. I don't bother with headphones - usually by the time I've put them on and plugged them in, the sound has disappeared.
And even then, it can take me up to 20-30 seconds from deciding "I'm gonna record that!" to rolling.
So what do you do? Here's what I figure is valuable, in order:
1) Light and compact, so it doesn't interfere with your day to day life. 2) Quick to set up. 3) Good quality sound. 4) Monitoring ability.
