Zoom H1

For ultra small, portable, and convenient recording, I use and recommend the Zoom H1. It’s small enough to fit in your pocket for recording from a wired lavalier microphone, and it’s built in condenser microphones are good enough for remote recording.

Zoom H5

The Zoom H5 is a four-channel portable recorder. Its built-in XLR preamps are great for directly connecting microphones, and it’s X/Y condenser microphones perform well for simple, remote recording.

The top X/Y capsule can be replaced with any of Zoom’s six interchangeable interfaces for different uses, including two more XLR inputs.

The Zoom H5 can also function as a 4-channel USB audio interface.

The top X/Y capsule can be replaced with any of Zoom’s six interchangeable interfaces for different uses, including two more XLR inputs.
