While I live in Dayton, OH, I've done more tape syncs in surrounding cities than just around the block. I record interviews regularly for my own projects, NPR pieces, and audio related to my podcast Everything Sounds -- all with the kit below. I know to look for spaces with ample sound absorbing items, and I've sat for hours in hot rooms so air conditioning wouldn't kick on.

Kit:

Zoom H4N

Personal Handy Recorder                                                                                     

Canare Quad L-4E6S & Neutrik Gold Connectors

RØDE NTG2

Multi-Powered Shotgun Microphone
