While the sheer number of channels and effects was a primary factor in the initial layout of this selection, certain models rose above their mere capacity by offering things like portability and a high signal to noise ratio. Both of those things are what skyrocketed the Zoom H4N toward the top of the list, in addition to the fact that it's one of the most commonly used audio recorders on low budget film sets. Our top pick is also oriented toward film and field applications, and it offers the best sound quality of the bunch. Among console-style options, Tascam creates a lot of great devices, but their Model 24 marries a deep, hands-on interface with vintage styling and incredible flexibility.
