    I am gonna have to agree with thetruwu on this one. Mini-disc is second rate to most hard disc recorders out on the market. I have used the H4 in the past and there doesn't seem to be much of an issue with hiss at all. The H4 has editing features just like mini disc recorders but also includes a lot of editing that mini disc doesn't, like it's 4 track abilities. Also if you ever want to upgrade to professional microphones the phantom power and xlr jacks are very useful. Another key feature that the H4 includes is the multiple file formats and sample rates it can directly record to. I would also like to go ahead and second thetruwu by saying the onboard mics are suprisingly good, and far exceeded my expectations.

    ive gone for freqmans to use in a short film, thanks mate, coz iv been searching sites for hours
    am pretty sure the hum in the other is an earth issue, make sure if ur using anything between mic and mixer etc that u use a DI box for a ground lift.
    earth hum is v distinctive as its at 50Hz (well, not in the states, but they wouldnt b the same would they lol)
    cheers again 4 the sounds

    Well, on the other hand there is still a lot going for minidisk recorders. I think that often the preamps produce less hiss then on some other recorders and you can devide a track easy and erase the part, you donĀ“t want. Plus, there is the storage away from the computer.

    A HiMD recoder records in the PCM mode, which is uncompressed audio.

    Microphones: well the Soundman OKM binaural microphones are great and the Shure wl187s or try to do your own setup with Panasonic microphone capsules you can buy at Ebay for just a few pounds.: http://taperssection.com/index.php/topic,94446.0.html

    I've been using battery for a long time.

    It's a great piece of software once you get to know how to use it. The latest incarnations are especially good.

    You know what, that's exactly the kind of thinking that prevents people from making good recordings at home. You don't need to eliminate every single noise that you hear, you need to discriminate between "noise" and "sounds". If you use filters, gates or anything similar in the signal path of your recording, you will lose quality, even if you think you're making things sound nicer. I by no means have a top notch room, nor do I have top notch equipment, but I can make nice sounding recordings without filters or gates because I know what will sound like noise and what might just be a sound. Sometimes a little extra sound can make it more human, though admittedly you might not want it TOO apparent!
    Anyway, I just think if you start trying to have the cleanest recording in the world with gates and filters you will end up with a lifeless mess of a recording, so why not just record clean and worry about things afterwards?

    Don't a agree. Using a gate will not mean thats your audio loses quality.

    Using EQ etc might add some issues - but really, the average guy is not going to hear the tiniest of phase issues - they might however hear (or at least appreciate) the benifit of removing the gunk below 120Hz of a vocal. But it really is the lesser of two evils.

    EQ it, compress it, gate it, do whatever you want to it. If you want purity... go to a nice expensive recording studio and use some nice expensive mics, desks and recording rooms.

    You can't leave room noise on a recording when your room has not been treated. It'll sound crap - it won't translate well on tinny systems and people will point at laugh :wink:

    your best bet to a free vst sampler is to build your own sound font file with all the notes to different loops. Other than that battery is the shit. It is geared twords percussion but KONTAKT is sweet to especially if you get the Sonic Couture Scriptorium. I think theres an Akai S2000 vsti as well but I dont exactly know where. . . . .

    I feel like your money might be better spent if you bought a Zoom H4 instead. It would be about the same cost, and the H4's built-in mics sound pretty darn good for the price. I've never recorded with an atr-25, but the reviews didn't look too promising to me. Also, keep in mind that minidisc recorders don't do mp3's; they use the ATRAC3plus format. It wouldn't be an issue if you only plan to record uncompressed audio, but it's something to keep in mind.

    Just my two cents. Best of luck with whatever you end up getting smile

    I use Kontakt, but that's $399. Personally I think it's totally worth the price, but it definitely is costly. Battery ($299) is another good choice (and also made by Native Instruments), but it's more geared towards percussion, and is also expensive sad

    I did a quick search and found this: http://www.vstcentral.com/plugins.aspx?mode=1&search=sampler&perPage=160

    Dunno if any of those are any good, but it's a pretty hefty list. Also, you can get a copy of this:

    http://www.kvraudio.com/get/250.html

    if you buy a copy of Computer Music magazine (which runs about $15 an issue...Barnes and Noble should stock it). They usually include a sample dvd with a bunch of their vst instruments with every copy of their magazine (which is decent). You might also be able to find a copy of it online...I don't know whether it's technically freeware or not, but it seems like it should be.

    Hope this helps.
