    I'm new to the international entertainment industry. An I'd like 2 Dj Drops to be created if possible ... I've been trying to figure out how to create my own but its taking more time then I'd first though ... So If possible can someone kindly create a quick Dj sound drop ....one male version and a female version ... I own my own Entertainment company by the name of Top Fam Entertainment. And I wouldnt mind networking with other professional dj's....

    feel free to email me at Blknmld5000@gmail.com.

    Thanks,

    Dj Ty iMcFly

    If anyone wants to help me out I'm putting together a track have an idea for various samples of different voices saying either "Roach" or "Roach Gang". Take your pick and give it a shot.

    Appreciate your help!

    I'm sorry I have this tendency to push people towards highend. Perhaps I'd like this site to have more schoeps/sound devices sounds than zoom sounds wink.

    Jokes aside. Even when one buys kit dedicated to external mics, all-in-one recorder remains relevant for many things when you need to go lightweight or stealthy. So it's kind of parallel thing.

    Thanks for the quick responses!!

    Ill be getting the zoom H1.

    i didnt know about the handling noise.thanks for pointing that out.

    i doubt i could get my hands on a second hand mixpre-d & recorder so its not
    an option,and as blaukreuz pointed out,ill start off with something simple.

    ---------

    For anyone looking into the Zoom h1,following links helped me a lot.

    Lots of sounds in this website recorded with the Zoom H1.
    Search them up, listen and decide if the quality is good enough for you.

    While you're right, of course, I may point out that the OP did say he can't afford more.
    Please show me where you can get a used mixpre-d in acceptable shape for anywhere under 5 times what the H1 costs.
    Add the cm3s (which I will admit sound amazing for their price, that IS good advice...) at 100 bucks a piece, and we're looking at 700$ at the till if he's lucky. And then he hasn't gotten a recorder yet.
    And yes, of course the result of recording with a H1 will not remotely reach the level of something done with a pair of Schoeps and a 552, and there is more thought to be put into gain management etc.
    But you can get there, and you start driving in the Corolla, not the Lamborghini.

    Good enough? If everything else is ideal, yes. It can be surprisingly usefull.

    Great? Perfect? Almost never. There is grain, noise, lack of depth, lack of definition. Yep you get somewhat "ok" results out of zoom. Yet once you want your recordings to sound realistic, you won't be satisfied. Not if your monitoring is worth the name.

    Cheap(ish) way out? Line audio mics http://lineaudio.se/CM3.html with second hand sound devices mixpre-d and recorder with digital input is something to consider. Night and day.

    There are of course some fine mics. Sennheiser MKH range, Schoeps, Neumann... even Rode is better than any built in mics.

    i have been searching on the internet for a long time for a sound bit of this only to find that it is generally written in text with either silence or cheese music playing in the background... I am in desperate need of a clear voicing of this done by a woman or even a computer female voice

    Go.
    Zoom packs excellent mics into their gadgets for the money. Of course, there are more expensive solutions that sound a lot better (but you DID post something about being on a budget, so I won't elaborate...), and I use them too, but my H2 has been a faithful and handy tool for many a quick location recording. A lot of the stuff out of my H2 went into the mixes of productions (by me and others) for major European broadcasters, so it won't just play for amateur stuff, if you know how to use it.
    Afaik, the H1 is cool too, and you definitely won't get a better bang for your buck.
    As for windshields: if you're doing foley in your basement, you're fine without one. If you're outside doing location stuff, as the previous posters said, you WILL need one, go for a Rycote or something similar, DON'T cut costs on that one, or, as also posted before, you will be in a world of hurt once even a little breeze picks up.
    Concerning the handling noise: A pistol grip connected to something like this:

    should serve you well, if you plan to record stuff while walking around the place.
    Have fun!
