    it should work fine, but you will get a hissing sound in the higher frequencies.

    It all depends on the mic, mic preamp and MD recorder.
    For sure, if you plug a cheapo mic directly into a cheapo MD.. it will not sound good.
    In either case, your going to have to wild-sync it. But even cheap MDs will run stable for a few minutes.

    What are you guys using? Premiere or FCP?

    I use cheap MD’s with cheap stage microphones and I get some pretty awesome sound, no hiss and great dynamic range, and my audio is in perfect sync after an hour of shooting.

    I’m looking into one of these:
    http://www.m-audio.com/products/en_us/MicroTrack2496-main.html
    street price about $400 (maybe less). Seems to be designed with the professional in mind. Great alternative to wireless or minidisk.

    Go for it. If I could afford them, I would replace my MD’s with the M-Audio units right now.

    My only reservation is that I haven’t used them or heard from anyone who has. Dont want to find out that there is that one little problem…but from what I see and read, you can’t do much better for the price.

    The iAUDEO U2 is kindof cool. I plan to use its on-board mic in for home video’s. Recordings sound good.

    It only has line-in for your other input option so the small size (pack of gum) would take a hit with the mic pre-amp circuit size.

    Syncing in post is a fairly easy task, my best advice for this is to turn audio waveforms on so that you can see what the audio is doing. That way, you can line up the peaks when there is a loud sound and the syncing is much more precise.
