The new F1 compact stereo field recorders were on show and are now available in two flavours, paired with either a shotgun mic module (F1-SP £225)) for camera mounting and "run and gun" shooting and a lavalier mic paired system - with locking mic inputs (Sennheiser style) for interview situations (F1-LP £175)
We also had a look at the Zoom L12 LiveTrak mixer recorder, it was first announced last year, which is a 12 input digital mixer with recall, 5 auxiliary sends, with EQ (compression on ch 1-8) and SD card recording of all inputs. As a standalone band or ensemble recording system of up to 14 discrete channels. it works standalone as well as as a USB audio IO for your DAW. Price around £520 UK.
We hook up a bunch of synths - now where's my cape?
