I’ve been looking to purchase or put together a carry-on sound kit for recording sounds that I may find while going about my day. Up until this point I’ve always carried with me a zoom H4n and it’s been very helpful for recording interesting sounds that I may want to add to my library for use in future projects.
However, the built-in stereo microphone of the H4n isn’t good enough in some cases (too much background noise, it’s not directional enough…) and I was wondering if I’d be a good idea de purchase a small microphone (and a case to carry it in) to carry with me at all times with my H4n so that I may use it to improve the quality of these recordings.
Is this a good idea? Is it worth it? Any recommendations for a good microphone that could work in this scenario?
Thanks a lot in advance,
