I'm an animator with some experience as a singer. My knowledge about sound comes from animating over music and singing to a microphone...
Nevertheless, I would like to start to make the sound scores for my own films.
I would welcome information about portable digital recorders together with mics for field recording. Very much like if I were to collect people singing and chatting while working outside (crickets, birds, brooks and wind). I have a budget of ca. 3000 euros.
I read some articles already (Marantz, Fostex, Edirol R-4, Sound Devices 722) but couldn't find critical information about the new Sony PCM-D1 for around 2000 USD. Does somebody have an opinion?
