At the beginning I thought every device similar to H4n (pocket recorders)
could record all the inputs at the same time, but later I noticed that
there are some that had a limited number of channels to record at once, 2
normally.
It's great to be able to record 3 or 4, you could record 2 OH, snare and
kick just with a little device. It's not the best, but definitively is very
useful.

Maybe nowadays there is another device that can handle 4 inputs and has
better recording quality.

Sometimes I've thought about buying a Zoom H4n (or another similar) jus=
t for the same goal: recording stereo overheads along with 1 mic for snare =
and 1 for kick (3 mics technique). Now I know it works, and quite well as I=
can see. BTW, very useful that tip of using room emulation with close over=
heads.

Thanks for the extended info.

It works, it's a little bit clusmy.. And the pres/converters have terri=
ble dynamic range so if you play loud on the snare you'll clip it at lo=
west gain, imo it's not really noticable tho.. it has some limiting fun=
ction but ifaik they're post ADC so they're not really usable as a =
clipping safeguard. It's noise floor is also quite high so it's not=
suitable for recording low SPL sounds in a quiet envoirment. You'll ea=
sily get away with an acoustic guitar tho. Nonetheless, it's a handy li=
ttle device, comes with a hardcase and fits in a pocket..

Good to know those things. Thanks=A0

Also I believe (at least the time I bought mine) the h4n was/is the only de=
vice that has simultaneous 4 channel record function.. so if you look into =
these things don't assume 4channels just because it has onboard mics an=
d 2mic inputs for external mics.
