New recording equipment arrived
I took a whole weekend day out of that-which-was-tax-prep to research recording equipment, weigh the options (oh how I weighed them!) and make a purchase. The results showed up this week, and I’m preparing a big ol article about my “decisions, decisions” process. Stay tuned. UPDATE: There’s much backstory to cover here, and (what I fear might be) excessive technical information; I want to go gently, and prevent sending you into a jargon-induced eye-glaze coma. So it’s turning into a multi-part set of articles. First installment will be an overview of portable recorder types. Then I’ll get into my decisions for the purchase.
