Had anyone uses this to record strings, more specifically Violin? If so, how does this compare to a dedicated mic like the AT2020 and audio interface, like the Scarlett 2i2? Looking for a budget recording tool. Thanks!
Can you use this as an audio interface recording directly to your computer through USB?

No the Zooms use standard SD cards. I've already tested the SD cards on my Zoom recorders. I don't know about the Tascam though. I've heard good things about both!
I agree with you the Tascams build quality are amazing! I like the fact though that I can plug the H1 into my laptop and use the line in as a two channel audio interface. In an emergency or extreme portability option it acts as both a USB mic and audio interface where I can plug in an instrument or even a dynamic mic and record into my DAW.
This is an old product,
How good is it ??

Thanks for the review and details!
Was excited to see something in this range that appeared solid.

Glad to know I have something to look forward to when I get one!
I've got a DR-07 mii (a now discontinued model that looks almost exactly the same as this one) and it's pretty amazing, one of the best purchases I ever made. For example I recorded my band live in this video ( and without touching anything except the volume in post it doesn't sound too bad at all. In closer quarters with quieter subjects it works really well too so long as you get yourself a pop-filter or dead cat, this is an example of only slightly edited audio of my voice from ~20cm from my face with a home-made pop-filter (
Hope that helps :)
