Zoom H5 4-Track Portable Recorder
I bought one of these to do one of my very first interviews for my Unstarving Musician podcast. To date, it’s my only in-person interview. It was with Kid Andersen of Greaseland Studios, and boy was I nervous. As far as tech gear goes, this bad boy is pretty easy to use. It’s also highly versatile. I recommend a high quality set of rechargeable batteries, but the H5 is ready to go out of the box.
I’ve been using Dreamhost forever, including this one. They’re hosting multiple websites for me. Excellent service and support!
