I recently got a Zoom H5 for my church to record the services (I'm the sound man & lead guitarist there).. While learning how to use it, I took it to a couple of my club/bar gigs. I got some of the best "live" recordings I've ever gotten using that recorder!
You can record using the 2 external mic's, plus you have 2 direct XLR-1/4 inch inputs. So you have the stereo track from the mic's and 2 other tracks that record on 2 separate tracks that you can mix on the unit or dump it to your computer and mix them in you DAW.
So I sat the H5 on top of the speaker, had a board mix and then my guitar (of course) Picked up the bass pretty good. I'll probably see about borrowing it again in the near future or buying one for myself. You can hear the tracks I recorded in the "Audio" section here on Z-talk(here: ztalk.proboards.com/thread/66713/tele-paisley-drive-wreck-withers ).

Looking at the Q4 and Q8, seems like a good jump for for me as the only video camera I have right now is an old Canon that uses mini-dv tapes! I have been reading other reviews of the Zoom and seems mixed bag - will try to get my hands on one or might just order one to play with - esp if there is a good return policy if it doesn't work in low light.
GuitarZ: I'm okay with the AARP letters. You're still living and breathing? What the heck am I to think when a funeral home sends me a free consultation offer? Ouch!

The Bad Poodle: I bought airline tickets online... now every few days i get emails that read "Your trip is almost here but aren't you forgetting something?? You don't have trip insurance!" and i'm thinking..."is there something i should know about your plane maintenance?"

GuitarZ: Reminds me of buying my Honda. When they tried to sell me the maintenance package, I said "Is your car not reliable?" Long story short my wife teamed up with the sales lady to buy the maint package. Never again!

roscoenyc: I have never in my life experienced tube rattle. That said, I've only been playing electric guitar for 49 years.

The Bad Poodle: What cures tube SHAKE and tube RATTLE? A tube ROLL?

capofirstfret: I've experienced tube rattle in two different amps that I've had. In both cases I bought the rubber rings from Eurotubes and it fixed it for me.

GuitarZ: Idiot! I wanted to put a little air on my Zoom H1's circuit board to clear out any residual Deoxit from spraying the input connector. Guess which can I picked up to spray. Yup! Not the air can.

premiumplus (Dave): I was wondering why a Frisbee gets larger the closer it gets. Then it hit me.
