Recorder rentals

Considerations when renting or leasing a recorder
You have many different choices when it comes to renting sound recorders for your production. When you are choosing one, consider the type of event you are recording. Those who are creating a feature film will likely want to rent or lease one of the high end recorders that have a number of different connections and features available. Those who are recording smaller short films may find that one of the portable handhelds can help them to capture the additional audio they need. Always compare the features between the makes and models to see which will be right for your project, and check out reviews from users of the recorder.

Features of recorders

The features of the recorders will vary based on a number of different factors. The portable recorders, which generally run on batteries, are small and handheld, while larger recorders will need to be placed on a flat work surface along with other audio equipment. They include a variety of different controls, as well as various types of connections for different devices. They will also feature a number of different tracks available for recording, again, based on the make and the model. Some will also include a timecode feature that makes it easier to synch the audio.

How recorders work

Recorders are able to let you record your audio, captured from the surroundings, as is the case with many field recorders, as well as through traditional connections to microphones or wireless microphones (usually via the mixer). The method of recording will vary based on the recorder in use. It's possible to take the recorded audio and then edit it to make it even better than the original capture.

About recorders

When you are creating any type of video production, you want to make sure that you have the best possible sound equipment. Sound is essential to quality video, and a great recorder will ensure you get top notch sound quality. Field mixers and sound recorders today are capable of delivering excellent results. They are available in a variety of different styles and configurations.
