Every so often, a piece of audio gear is released that quickly builds a loyal base of users to the point that it becomes almost ubiquitous, just an obvious choice for a given application because it works so well. The rise in popularity of the Zoom H4n is such an example.
If you gather ten sound engineers in a room and ask them what’s the best way to record something, don’t be surprised when you get ten different answers. One thing that makes sound engineering such a fun field is that all ten answers will probably be right.
At the NAMM Show in Anaheim, California, it’s not uncommon for the old and the new to cross paths. For more than a century, NAMM has been the place to showcase the latest innovations in music-related products.

Join Rob Rives in this B&H video as he test-drives the Nagra LINO and PICO portable digital audio recorders. You get to hear what they sound like in action, with recorded examples of dialog and acoustic guitar.

A clever new piece of equipment is available that corrects all of the shortcomings of HDSLR audio, in a single compact, camera-mountable box. The Fostex DC-R302 is a three-channel field mixer, with a two-channel high-resolution audio recorder built in.
Two new portable digital recorders from Olympus do an excellent job of spanning the gap between being useful voice recorders (for recording memos and lectures), and high-resolution audio recorders (for recording music and detailed ambient sounds).
