First question on here...
So I will be doing lots of field recording in Asia for the next few months. I've got a sennheiser me66 for mono spot fx, which is linked into a zoom h4n via the sound devices mm-1 pre-amp (did not want to be using the h4n's pre's). So I think I'm all good there.
My issue is with ambience. I'm just starting out in this field (this is my first rig) and I've got a big name in major motion picture sound to impress. I know I won't be doing much impressing with a zoom device, but I don't have the money/don't want to take anything too expensive around less-safe parts of Asia.
So...do I record ambience 2-channel stereo on my h4n or 4-channel on my h2? I'm thinking 4-channel would be better, but I just got the h4n and don't know how much better or not the onboard mics are than the h2. I would be going for local walla and various nature ambience.
Any other advice is more than welcome too, this is my first time doing all of this so it's a bit daunting knowing I'm going to go back home to Los Angeles after this and try to impress people who have been doing this for twice my lifetime.
