Audio Recorders

As I mentioned at the start of the semester, you need to have an audio recorder for the second half of this semester … which starts in a week.

So, by Oct. 8, please have an audio recorder that meets the following standards as decided upon by the Department of Journalism faculty*:

Audio recorders must permit the student to:

  • Monitor sound as it is being recorded;
  • Manually adjust recording levels;
  • Connect an external microphone;
  • Produce WAV or MP3 file formats,
  • Transfer files without proprietary software.

The following models are recommended:

  • Zoom H1 Handy Portable Digital Recorder (Approx. $100) Tascam DR-05 (Approx. $100)
  • Tascam DR-07MKII (Approx. $120)
  • Zoom H2 or H2n Handy Portable Stereo Recorder (Approx. $200)
  • Zoom H4n Handy Portable Digital Recorder (Approx. $300)

*And when I say “decided upon by the Department of Journalism,” I mean I told them this was good and they nodded in agreement.
