A few overriding factors when it comes to picking a recorder for capturing classes and the odd performance:
- Battery life. It sucks running out during a workshop.
- Ease of use. It sucks when you realise afterwards that you didn't activate the recording correctly or recorded an hour of silence at perfect quality.
- Microphones must be able to handle the very high sound pressure.
Forget about everything else. The quality of these things is by far good enough to record classes and jog your memory, no matter what model. And you will never make a high-quality recording with the kind of acoustics you find in a classroom or the field.
