Advice needed / compact audio recorder
I've been using the Voice Memos iOS app to capture random noises in life, and I'm wanting to go up a notch or two in terms of overall signal recording quality, etc. Sort of a found sounds mission companion. Like this evening, there's a wicked bug / beast up in a tree that is doing his best to find a mate or something, but he's terrible at it, and would make a great trap hihat loop with a little bit of post processing. But I got nothing usable from my phone. I am not looking to go as far as a full field recording setup with external mics just yet. I just want something that can fit in my pocket or go up a tree on a pulley system I make to capture bug music and whatnot. Any thoughts on what to look for, brands, experiences, etc would be much appreciated!
