Here I compare two currently available digital mobile audio recorders, one called R1 and the other R2, to avoid being influenced by brand prejudices. Please comment which one you like better on this application. For the techies: Both recorders have two condenser microphones. The recording was done simultaneously with both, one sitting on top of the other about 45cm from the guitar top , to have them as closly as possible in the same position relatively to the guitar. The files were mono (left and right track separately) normalized to -1.7dB and mixed down using no processing whatsoever apart from dithering (Izotope 6). So one can say the sound is as it comes straight ot of the boxes. The guitar used is a Sascha Nowak Cedar/EIR Classical Guitar.
