Thread Name: Tech: MINI DISK + MIC.
Subject: RE: Tech: MINI DISK + MIC.
KB - "plug-in power" usually means that the socket supplies "Phantom Power" which is required by many condenser microphones, this shouldn't stop it working with a mic that doesn't require it. The thing that I'd be interested to know is if the computer mic records in stereo - they don't usually, and it seems silly to lose this facility. The mic that I suggested, has it's own little battery box (one AA), but if there was phantom power available from the recorder, it might be possible to dispense with it, which would make it even more compact. For a single-point mic so small, it gives quite remarkable stereo separation.
