Portable recorders - or field recorders - offer a convenient, mobile way to record and store audio. A lot of professional audio is recorded in studio settings, with large mixing consoles and sensitive gear. But when sound engineers have to record on location - film sets, public events, impromptu jam sessions - they rely on the mobility of field recorders. These durable recorders can be hand-held, and larger units weigh up to a few pounds. Compact, clutter-free, and ruggedly built portable recorders are invaluable for musicians, journalists, filmmakers, professors, and more.
