im fresh kill around here, a radio reporter and documentary maker with a big interest in sound.
Ive been looking of some way out of the minidisc ghetto
for radio reporting jobs for some time now, thinking that
i might get an mBox and an iBook (or something like that)
and make life sound better.
then just this weekend i met a BBC chap (at the Big Chill, as
it happens) who had a dinky looking thing that turned out to
be a NAGRA ARES-P. it seemed ideal for the job. Once touch
recording, instant sound files, all-of-a-piece mic etc. etc.
When i got home and researched a bit, i discoverd that the unit
has two boo-boos from my POV:
1) it records on removable media cards (which max out at around
500MB, i think...)
2) it records in compressed format (MPEG summit...)
This forum then seemed like an ideal place to ask...does anyone know of a tool that does not have these disadvantages but is sort of all-in-one jobby that is good for mobile work?
thanks in advance to all
