I am new to field recording (being a musician and sound designer)and am looking to create a portable stereo recording rig to record sound effects and ambiences. So far i only recorded indoors. (except for some bad h4n experiments).
I basically need to invest in a full rig and want it to be of very good quality from the get go to avoid having to upgrade soon. low noise and light weight.
1.Low noise mics able to fit in a compact Rycote rig Question:Any suggestions for a compact and future-proof set of mics? Maybe go modular with the Schoeps system? I think i want to do mono and M/S recordings mostly.
2.Recorder (either SD Mix-Pre + D50, or a 702) Question: Which option of the two above would you recommend? Or are there any alternatives in that price range that offer the same quality / durability but are more compact or lighter? I tend towards the 702 without the HDD to save weight, or maybe that is a bad idea?
3.Rycote modular kit. I suppose thats the best way to go for pistol grip and wind protection, thinking that i may change to a different mic combination at some point?
Any suggestions would be very helpful.
Thanks a lot!
