I am looking for a portable USB field recorder device, which also works as an usb audio device/mic while connected to the computer, and also provides some kind of (digital) noise filter for ground noise. Couldn’t really find anything like that, but maybe I suck in googling, or the product descriptions aren’t very precise.
Zoom H1 should have all the features. I bet all the Zoom recorders should work as a USB Mic.
Thanks! What do you think about the Zoom H5?
I think you can’t go wrong with any of the Zooms. I have the H1, but rarely used it. Problem is that the battery empties within a week even if it is off. This is normal though.
I’ve had trouble using my Zoom H4n as a USB audio interface. It’s excellent as a standalone recorder, though, which is what I bought it for.
I have a Roland R-26 that works as an interface and has optional lowpass filter (100hz/200hz/400hz). I love it and should use it way more than I do.
Sampling Rates: 44.1KHz / 48KHz / 88.2KHz / 96 KHz
You probably mean low-cut/high-pass filter…unless you want to record some rumble
Thanks. The Roland R26 reads great, but not available anymore. Only a silly, single model by roland still exists.
I just bought the TASCAM DR-05X and it works great both as a standalone use and as an audio interface.
The only drawback is very sensitive to microphonics, better not to touch it during recording.
Portable Audio Recorder and USB Interface Recording and playback of MP3 (up to 320 Kb / s) and WAV files (up to 24 bit / 44.1 / 48/96 kHz), Recording media: Micro SD / SDHC / SDXC cards (up to 128 GB), Usable as USB audio interface for Mac and...
whoops. that’s what I get for trying to use my brain upon waking lol
