Digital Recording has been around for quite some time now. It has largely replaced tape as the main medium for recording except for some professional applications. What has become more prolific in the past couple of years though is the handheld digital recorder- being able to record anywhere, anytime and with practically no hassle or set up time. Many manufacturers feature products that give you what is the equivalent of a complete recording studio in the palm of your hand. The stereo sound qaulity is pristine, and since everything is digital the files can quickly be transferred to a computer to be saved or edited. There are many to choose from, and while most of them share many features, each has its own unique niche that lets it stand out from the bunch. Like many poeple, you may find that once you have one, you’ll never leave home without it!
