New Q2HD

Q2HD_beauty_reflectionStudio 300 recently acquired a new HD video camcorder with amazing built-in stereo audio recording. The Zoom Q2HD is perfect for capturing live music performances with high-quality sound.

The camera has a built-in microphone with variable stereo based around the principle of mid-side recording (read about that here). The mid-side technique gives you a variable stereo with 100% mono compatibility.  The Q2HD also records in high-quality digital formats up to 96kHz/24-bit. That translates into rich stereo recordings with depth and detail.

The camera, of course, also records HD video to go along with its great sound.

To take advantage of the variable stereo offered by the Q2HD requires some additional work in a Digital Audio Workstation, such as Reaper (available in Studio 300). The screenshot below shows the basic workflow. The details are beyond the scope of this blog post, but we’re happy to explain this technique further to you. Just ask.Process Mid-Side

The Q2HD is available for use in Studio 300.
