Should I upgrade my microphone?
I'm here to ask for your opinions on this. I currently have a Tascam Dr 100 mkii and NTG 1. It works pretty well, but not great. There's always quite strong background noise present, and it's not possible to remove much of it in post.
In comparison, my SmartLav and Dr 05 produce a much more clean file and also sound a lot better to me, and others.
So I was wondering if getting a more sensitive microphone like the AT4073a would be a good choice to get better quality sound. Or would a better recorder do me better?
