Topic: pocket devices for multi-track recording - advice from owners please!
I'm in the process of searching for a good device for my purposes. I've looked at the basics - Tascam DR-1, Zoom H2 and H4; also Boss Micro BR (I'd need a mic but that's a query for another time). My budget is <£200.
I've read that the H2 has no multitrack facility at all, and the Tascam (thank you to a poster here!) will only do literal overdubs. Can you ping-pong using the Tascam - i.e. keep dubbing new recording onto the overdubbed track? My purpose will be recording vocal harmonies & different instrument lines, so anything approximating proper multi-track capability is what I need.
With the Boss Micro, can you bounce tracks down as well?
Naturally, proper multi-tracking would be ideal - being able to keep each recorded track separate but still play them all at once while recording a new one. I don't think I'll be able to get this on my budget though.
Other device suggestions are welcome! Especially as having shopped around I'm ideally looking for something a bit cheaper... closer to £100.
