Digital voice recorder for mic?

Could'nt a DVR be used with a mic and used in an NLE in place of the audio the HV10 produces? It of course would be more work but with small DVR's at sub $100 price points- I think it could be enticing to use the HV10 for semi-pro work with a DVR recording sound and dumped into NLE's.

Does anyone do this type of thing?
Any problem with this idea?

(Here's a DVR that is USB connectable for audio transfers:

You will need to be cautious ... the cheapish unit do not record 16bit 44.1 (or 48)kHz files. I couldnt see ANY recording format info when I glanced at your link - maybe I missed it - but a similar unit my wife bought said it recorded .wav files, which sounded promising until we discovered they were only 4-bit!

On the other hand, THIS unit would be fantastic for what you would like do do, provided you are happy to sync up manually: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/bnh/cont...ughType=search

There is no time code. How do you sync up the video with the external audio from the DVR?

Line up the waveforms by eye in your NLE timeline ...

It's how they used to do it in the 'olden days' ! :)

Works fine, relatively simple to line up the audio in your NLE.

Caution !! avoid !!!

The Sony ICD-P320 Digital Voice Recorder only has a response of 250 hz to 6,800 hz, this is barely good enough for voice recording !!!!

A 20hz to 20,000hz frequency response sould be your minimum for good audio work, this in practice means a device that records at 44.1khz.

16 bit (at least) + 44.1khz (at least) and you should be good.
