We all have to admit that digital recorders are more convenient than tape recorder in the end. When it comes to buying one, you may be confused since they have so many different features, types and serve different jobs. If your job need a digital recorder software, which one you will be needing? So now, to save you from the pit, I make a list of things you should consider before purchasing any DVR.
You may not know but there are some digital recorders that are able to record up to 450 – 500 hours. Yeah and you will probably be amazed, and attracted to these things. Well it’s only a market trick, don’t be fooled, guys. In this feature, take note to yourself that the more quality you want, the less recording time you’ll get. Read carefully if there is any prescription about the total time recording in high quality. You are surely like the best stuff since it also means that the transcriptions, if you need, will be at the higher chance to be right. Who doesn’t want a right transcription, I mean. Then don’t believe too much in what the seller tells you but check that yourself. Don’t end up buying low-quality stuffs~
Begin with base good gear:The base of a good recording is a pair of a good audio interface and a good microphone. It’s no use spending a fortune on a mic, but at least don’t buy a trashy thing. A decent mic will do. Similarly with he audio interface, its preamps should be clear so as to give minimal noise in your record. Like I said, your recording software should begin good condition and easy to use, so that it wouldn’t take so long to render your track. Before recording, take a look check all your equipment to avoid any issues.

In this era, acoustic recording studios were very simple, little and basic equipment. They have essentially soundproofed recording rooms that keep the artist from the noise outside. During this time it was pretty common for recording process to be done in any location that is isolated enough, such as a local ballroom, and people bring along their portable acoustic gear.
Thanks to the invention of microphone, the mixing desk, and the electronic amplifier, loud speakers… along with their commercial presentation, the recording industry has stepped to another level that the ancient mechanical acoustic recording style almost disappeared.
