    Should I use a Field Recorder for Recording Sounds Outside?

    Also Would using a Shotgun Mic be a good idea? I don't have one, but would like to know although I feel like it is a bit of a stupid Question. Are there any other things that would be useful in recording sounds?

    That would be fine. It depends on application. Are you recording sound effects for later use? Are you making films or doing video production, or just looking for material for samples to manipulate?

    I am recording for later use. Just looking for material that I can manipulate in my DAW.

    A great, relatively inexpensive stereo recorder is the Zoom H1, which also can be firmware upgraded to a USB microphone.

    Thanks. I will get the H6 though cause I am 100% sure it will do the same.

    Correct. It is of course, $300-$400 more. But it is your money.
