I'm looking at getting an audio recorder that could work well in a loud environment. I work at a paper mill and the machines are quite loud (120db). I want to capture some of the noises of the machines working which will be turned into an ambient soundscape. Some Questions: - Are there good recorders that can be used while in a pocket? If my pants rub up against the device, will that pretty much ruin my recording? - Are there some affordable devices that can be used in environments hotter than 120ºF? I'm a complete audio field recording novice incase you couldn't tell. I don't need HD sound, if some hiss comes up, so be it. I also don't want to spend more than $250. Thanks for reading / helping.
