Iím wondering what my best option would be. I would like to be able to record with a an external microphone, shotgun or stereo, into a stand-alone audio recorder. Iím leaning towards getting an attachment like a TASCAM IXJ2 to connect to my iphone to record to apps like FourTrack or FiRe. Itís an old Iphone 4S that is not in use other than as an audio / video device. The advantages I see here is that is very compact, a lot of storage space, can process audio using a variety of apps.
Is there any appreciable advantage to nixing this idea and getting a dedicated audio recorder such as a DR-05 or something smaller, to record withÖ.?
