Default 1991 McGill Classic Recording

This is my test video for trying out a new recording space. I moved out of the slightly cramped Guest Room Studio into our library / piano room which has a wood floor and 20-foot ceilings. I think that the dip in audio quality that comes from just using a Zoom recorder might be worth it, given how much better and more alive the room feels. Comments pro or con in that regard are very welcome.

The guitar is my '91 McGill Classic.

Thanks Roscoe.

I had a bit of an epiphany last night. I put all of my gear onto a single rack mounted on wheels. As my gear has dwindled, that is now possible with room to spare. So if I want to record in a big, much more live room, all I have to do now is roll that rack into that room and record like I always do ... with the really good Peluso mic and interface, etc. (not the Zoom)

I can't believe I just now thought of doing that. Sometimes I can be rather dense.

Great job and great tune! That's a nice sound you got there. How do you feel about the zoom compared to other portable recorders?

Leon,

I've only used the Zoom once for things like this (in that video) and I don't have any experience with other portable recorders. I think it does a good job, but it is rather noisy. I had to pass the file through noise reduction software twice to take out most of the background hiss.

Having moved all of my studio stuff to a rolling cart, I'm looking forward to recording in that room with "real" equipment.

Yep, it does do a nice job. I was just wondering because I've heard some good stuff about it. I have an edirol hr which is also nice for portable recording but I haven't tried any others.
