I need a good portable sound recorder or some sort of quality recording device to take to concerts.

first of all im not gonna bootleg and sell them.. i may give them for free so im not making a quick buck off the bands, but really i just want it for myself, so i can enjoy the concerts again later

i need some sort of recording device that can withstand very loud noise.. like if im in the pit.. how would i record the concert

please give suggestions on this.. whether its equipment or technique suggestion

like the floor area, its not as br00tal as people make it seem.. im not gonna be where all the murderizing is.. but usualy if u stand off to the side or are at the railing.. nothing happens

If you have an Ipod they make a recording attachment for it. I don't know how it will sound for a large concert but for local shows it works out pretty well but you can't be moshing around with it.
#6
the moshing wont be a problem, i just need something that can record the sound good, i have no problems with editing the sound later on a little.. and maybe i should muffle it somehow?
#7
This is a recording device and should be in the recording form...

anyways i suggest the Zoom H4 because it will pick up loads of different sounds without much problem. The mics are condenser though so battery wont last too long and you cant toss it around or expose it to extreme loud sounds.

you can also look into a cheap mic and Boss Micro BR

these little recorders work great for what you are looking to do but they are also high in price because making compact recorders is though.

theres a really really expensive sony one that is a X Y recorder and its just amazing it sounds like a cd but live pretty much even if you stick it up to a bass amp it re calibrates but its like REALLY expensive

try looking into the newest zoom H2:

(mp3 tracks at the right of the video screen)
less price and better features/recording quality IMO

I'm not sure how well it will handle loud sounds but i don't think this unit will have a problem...
I would say give it a try and if you dont like it you can always sell it on ebay or return it to the store...

Have a listen to the guitar track recording...that just shows how well the two mics work on this unit. Also its extremely hard to record a drumset with such a small unit being as its almost like having one mic which is hard to balance all the sounds but they managed to get this zoom working great even for drum recording.

I dont plan on getting one but I must say, I like this little unit.

You're reduced to a choice between: sitting at the side of the mosh and listening without jumping around, recording; or risking expensive equipment in the mosh and getting crap sound quality from all the phuckwits screaming and your equipment bumping around. Don't bother dude.
