"An intensive six?week period followed, with Ford joining the band in the later stages to add his thoughts on the song structures and arrangements and to record live demos on his Zoom H4N digital recorder." - [*Sound on Sound*](http://www.soundonsound.com/sos/jul11/articles/james-ford.htm).more
Yaeji is in Fact Magazine’s "Against The Clock", a format where artists create music within 10 minutes. Around 11:33 into this video Yaeji states: > And then I recorded vocals that I just improvised from… I have different notebooks that I just write down random lyrics on. So I picked some and just improvised and then brought that in. I chose to use my Zoom, because I like the quality it gets from my voice and I have a very whispery voice.more
"Yes I also use field recordings quite a bit. I use my Zoom H4, record sounds as I stumble over them - or I plan to go for a sound hunt (sometimes inside the house even). Then I just try different effects and processing. Pretty sure that 90% never turns into anything. But I do return to the raw material once or twice some time later and try again (more or less with the same results). Some are used more or less pure, some are manipulated quite a lot."more
What I'm mainly using this for now is my piano. I'll have this mic'd up right where the hammer hits the strings, my m160 close pointed at the strings, and the ntk pulled back in the middle of the room. Full great tone.
Quite useful for field recording and with it's dual function as a audio interface. Careful as these are quite fragile. Mine has something rattling inside and bent microphone from it falling from a microphone stand. Still functions fine though.
I use this guy in the field, in the studio, and everywhere else. It seems to do it all, and the battery lasts forever. Bought one years ago and have never had a problem.
