our field recording & video equipment!

All of the field recording equipment listed down below is nearly everything we own while traveling the world (minus our clothes!) You will see that we’ve broken down all our gear into 3 sections: audio, camera & travel equipment.

Audio recorders

Since the beginning of Free to Use Sounds, we’ve been brand loyal to Zoom. It’s hard to believe that when we started in this sound world we used a Zoom H1 recorder to capture sounds in Cambodia. As the years have gone, we continue adding Zoom recorders to our ever growing gear family. 

Watch our gear in action! This video features the newly released Zoom F6 recorder! We put this little guy for a real world test on the streets of Lisbon, Portugal to see how well the 192kHz/32 bit float recording works!

Microphones, Cables & Antenna

We’re still in disbelief that we can carry all of these items with us. Somehow we’re able to fit everything in 2 suitcases & 2 backpacks!

Recently we did a video showcasing the amazing benefits of having a contact microphone! This small yet mighty piece of equipment can pick up cleaner sounds with less ambience noise! Watch our video to hear what we mean!
