I'm most likely going to buy a Zoom H2 recorder to keep with me. I'm always hearing awesome sounds, but I don't carry my 744 with me (for obvious reasons), so I either have to remember where they are and make a special effort to record them later, or sulk away knowing that another great sound has escaped the mighty magnetic forces of my hard drives. I have the Olympus portable, but I really don't like it. Never liked the sound of it (it is, however, nice and tiny). I've heard some great stuff from the H2 (Miguel recently posted a recording from it on his blog: http://miguelisaza.com/files/the-little-creaking-door.html ) and I'm pretty much sold on it.
However, when I'm looking at the specs, it mentions that the frequency response is 70hz to 20khz. That's pretty much like having an HPF built in. Does anyone know if that's referring only to the built in microphones or to the actual recorder itself? For example, if I plugged my RØDE NT4 in to the ext mic input, would I be able to record 20hz - 70hz information? The specs aren't very comprehensive.
If someone out there owns one and could test it for me (if you don't already know), I would be greatly appreciative!!!
Thanks so much!
