4 Micro-Mini Flash Recorders Put a Studio in Your Pocket
New generation of pocket-size digital recorders are a boon for teachers and practice-conscious string players
One of the best tools a string teacher or player can have on hand is a recording device. Recordings don’t lie and can give you an objective record of your ensemble’s rehearsal or your progress on that challenging Paganini passage. They’re also great for capturing a master class that you can revisit for a dose of inspiration. This roundup of micro-mini digital recorders is a group that we found to be especially useful.
What makes this quartet of recorders well suited for string players? Each recorder is smaller than a smart phone, easily fitting into a pants pocket or violin case, and has a street price under $200. In addition to portability, each unit has features that make it appealing to string musicians, including stereo mics, adjustable playback speed, and onboard features like built-in tuners and metronomes.
