Wow! Thank you all for your comments. I teach middle school and high school video production as an after-school type thing. It’s very project-based, learn-as-you-go and not very technical, but it fills a need. Looking at it now it’s probably a bad idea to start a topic in a well-educated, professional community like this, but I hope you’ll forgive my ignorance.
Our budget is small and we don’t mic drums for lack of channels and proper mics, which is why I was thinking upgrading the on-board mic was better than nothing. Our feeds from the board are usually fairly lame because so much of our sound is acoustic.
I really like the idea of the Zoom recorders. Seems like a system that we could use solo and then add microphones to.
I value your expertise a lot! Thank you!
