D2+ voice recording mode - recording loud things and distortion
I play in a band, and I've been trying the D2+ voice recording. I can tell the recording would sound terrific but for distortion which I'm positive is caused by having to start and stop the recording right from in the middle of the band and amplifiers, etc. In some instances such as practice, it's not possible to place the D2+ 50 feet away due to the limitation of our practice space.
Has anyone experimented with ways to try and reduce the input of loud volume sources to the built-in mic such as placing something over it, or any other way to reduce distortion to to volume without giving a severely muffled recording? I have the same problem trying to record videos of the band with my canon G2 camera which I do with a bass guitar in my left hand and the camera in my right, right from stage.
