About Portable Recorders

Portable Recorders are compact recording devices that often feature a built-in microphone. Sometimes referred to as "handheld recorders", portable recorders can capture studio-quality audio, without the need for a separate microphone or mixing desk. This is ideal for capturing ambient audio for sound design, for recording lectures or even music performances. Many portable recorders also offer the ability to plug in extra microphones for multitrack recording and give you the ability to select the correct microphone for your production. Many people use them as a portable voice recorder or a small recorder for instruments to take down ideas quickly and develop at a later time. 

 

Why Do I Need a Portable Recorder?

  • Record broadcast quality audio anywhere
  • Guitar recorders are great for capturing ambient noise for sound design
  • Many recorders can record in stereo and let use your own microphones
