Hey Tek Syndicate,
I'm currently developing a game with a team of 2-3 people. We've decided to do all of the sound effects ourselves rather than purchasing stock ones. We have the ability to do some foley in studio, but we need to be able to go out to interesting places (junk yards, construction sites, forests, etc) for unique sounds. I need some portable equipment than can record high quality sound on location. I currently have an XLR shotgun microphone, but I have nothing to plug it into yet. The research I've done led me to this: http://www.long-mcquade.com/products/1952/Pro_Audio_Recording/Field_Recorders/Zoom/H4n_Handheld_Audio_Recorder.htm
Is this all I really need? Not sure if something like that can power a pro mic, though I'm not the best when it comes to audio stuff.
I know Logan is an audio guy but I'm open to suggestions from anyone. Also I would appreciate any suggestions for some interesting locations to get some cool sounds.
