If I could add one function to this product it would be the ability to mix the internal mics with the line in or external mics...That is it.
The convenience of the H2 is very important and it greatly assists in songwriting, jamming, improvising, and memory. New music ideas and melodies often pop into my head and in the past many ideas were lost due to my inability to record them then and there. With the H2 if I like something, I simply record it in a high quality mp3 format (which takes up way less space than a wave file) and build on it or come back to it later. This gives you the freedom to record a melody and then add rhythm or a second part to it right afterwards, which makes songwriting much easier. The recording sounds great which is a big plus also. For improvising, I do the same thing, so if I have played a riff, or something I want to remember, I can go back later through the session and pick out the good stuff and play it more. Hearing your mistakes and style in clear audio can provide motivation for practice and props to your playing. I have also used the H2 for recording jam sessions with bass, drums, guitar, and vocals. This is very useful for the reasons above, plus you can provide your band mates with the mp3 files either on a cd or via USB to their computer then and there. I would even go so far as to suggest you could use this unit to record live performances (depending on the show) and then provide mp3s or a CD to fans afterwards or put the show on Youtube or your website. For instance, if you do acoustic sets this would work really well.
It comes with a wind screen, desktop stand, mike stand attachment, and usb cable. It uses SD cards which are cheap, reliable, and can hold hours worth of music and two AA batteries. The gain can be adjusted via a switch on the side for various recording (noisy) environments. While you can't plug into it and record direct, I believe the H4 model does have more input jacks. I've had it for about a year now, and I have found it to be somewhat rugged and durable, though I wouldn't drop it or put it somewhere it could get smashed as it is plastic. I would buy it again and have found it to be quite an asset to my music, both songwriting and learning.
