Just a quick piece here - our regular video comes later this week
When I first started learning about recording sound, my first recorder was the Zoom H1. And it wasn’t just at the start - its still in my kit.
If you’re just starting out, have a tight budget, but you love learning, the H1n is a great way to get started. I learned how to record better dialogue sound and with those recordings, got to spend lots of time learning post processing and mixing. But even when you are able to add microphones better suited for dialogue recording to your kit, the H1 is still a great tool for recording sound effects and ambience. I still have the original and pull it our from time to time.
Thanks to B&H and Zoom, we have an exclusive pricing event for September 2nd and 3rd. Normally the H1n is priced at $119 USD but is on special via this link for $84.99.
And for old-time’s sake, here’s a video from 2011 - way back in my early YouTube days - where I used the H1 to record the dialogue. And thumbs up for that Cary Judd music at the start of the video! (and please no thumbs down for the bad framing):
