Has anyone used a Zoom H4N or anything similar?
I'm looking for something to replace my laptop/firewire interface for occasions where I'm only recording 2 channels. Generally just main or matrix outs of a FOH console. Having the ability to do 4 channels may prove useful too, by adding a stereo pair by FOH. I'd like a standalone unit like the Zoom to avoid driver issues with a computer. Having everything just go to an SD card, or any sort of internal NAND would be great.
At least once or twice a month I end up on a gig that's just a pile of 7 or 8 local no-name bands. A lot of times, I'll sell the bands recordings of their sets. It also helps to get amplifier levels down on stage- because if the band is paying for a recording, they'll most likely listen to you to get the best result!
