Is this a good match with the Rode Videomic?

Will this let me capture uncompressed, good audio from the Rode Videomic?

Based on seeing HiMD in the name of the above URL, I'll venture to say "yes." However, I won't click on any CNet anything, as they're pretty famous for introducing spyware/adware to your system.
HiMD is a great means of capturing PCM audio with any microphone.

Yep, that'll record with the VideoMic just fine. I've got a similar model, and have had the Rode in it several times.

Sony Hi-MD

Hey guys, I might as well butt in to see if I can get my own question asked. I see this will work well with the Videomic, but is this unit also a good choice for recording live sound off a mixing board during a music concert.
If so what adapters/cables will I need? Also to connect and import that audio into my computer or NLE?
The only recording I've done off a board was with a female XLR cable - into a Beachtek - into a GL2. I'd like to get one of these units because whenever I ask about the best ways to record these live shows, I get reccomended to setting up two mics (x-y) in the room and using a minidisc recorder to get sound of the board and then mix the two in post. I just don't know anything about minidisc recorders at all ( or really recording sound for that matter). Thanks a lot for any input you might have.
