More than 35 years ago, I was involved in sound recording. At that time, we had a large cassette player on the field, which was replaced by a smaller, portable one. And lots of batteries Baby. And necessarily three audio cassettes.
3 years ago I decided to go back to recording sounds. I am retired 24 years, I also need a crutch to help me, so it was difficult for me to carry photo and video equipment with me.
I use a ZOOM H5 for sound recording. I also have a ZOOM H4n Pro. The microphones I use are XYH-5, MSH-6, Audio-technica AT875 R, microUcho Pro and Boya tie microphone.
