The Kid was not asking about recorders, I was….Oh I get it you were trying to tell The Kid if he doesn’t stop calling the Mods out & stirring the pot, straighten up and fly right, you will spank and torture him, limit his access, sentence him to searching old threads where he will “enjoy the fruits of his labor”? Good idea I LIKE the way you think Michi. Kids these days, I have one 22 thinks he knows everything…..lol! Kid trying to suck up in his last post don’t let him off the hook. J/K! I’m just messing with you guy’s lmao!
Well, I was telling The Kid to get off his lazy behind and do his own search instead of asking the mods to do his dirty work for him
You are right: kids these days just aren't what they used to be. When I
was a kid, I knew what it meant to have respect for one's elders. Kids just have it too easy these days. I had to walk to school every day, through the snow, and it was uphill, both ways!
I’m wondering if the slow down in portable recorders is because cell phone recorders are advancing and cornering the market? They are a more convenient multi-device.
I haven't had much luck with my iPhone for recording drums, and I find that just about everyone reports the same problems, regardless of model of phone: the microphone in a mobile phone is designed for low sound pressure levels and you get horrible distortion at the volume levels produced by drums.
The slow-down in portable recorders is probably more likely due to the market having reached a degree of maturity where it's more difficult to come up with compelling new features for a new model. After all, once "it works" and you have decent battery life and storage capacity, there is little you can add to a recorder to make it more attractive to (what are mostly amateur) buyers.
Here is my first recent Djembe recording and u-tube up load from my Samsung Fascinate couple years old.
I like the maracas as drumsticks. Creative idea
I notice a fair bit of distortion in the sound though. You probably need something that can cope better with the high volume level.
