Portable & Field Recorders
Record On The Go!
While a recording engineer might dream of anechoic chambers and Blue microphones
, we are frequently relied upon to capture a live audio in a less-than-ideal setting. Achieving the perfect recording is easier than ever with the incredibly wide selection of both handheld recorders
and portable recorders
now available at Sonic Electronix!
Handheld Field Recorders
Handheld recorders are quickly becoming an extremely viable and reliable option for field mixes. These devices will generally record to an SD or SCHC card, and often feature adjustable resolution for the recordings. Some recorders have their own built-in microphones, but most feature XLS inputs with Phantom Power to allow direct connection to the source mic. However, they are generally limited to mono or stereo recordings only which is fine for most applications.
Portable Field Recorders
Portable recorders are not generally as small and lightweight as their handheld counterparts, but pack a much bigger punch in a pretty compact package. While Handheld devices are usually limited to 2-track simultaneous recording, it is not uncommon to see portable units capable of recording 4, 8, and even 10 channels at the same time. These systems feature larger rotary knobs, faders, and buttons for improved control. Many portable recorders are perfect "all-in-one" systems as they can be used as recorders, samplers, and even as an interface or controller for a Digital Audio Workstation.
