I have a question about the Zoom H2. Is it possible to use an external battery powered microphone instead of built in microphones? Do the internal mics automatically stop working if I connect a mic? I don't have my H2 here and I don't have a battery powered mic here to check. I will not be able to check any of these things myself before the day we need to record. The mic is one that usually use phantom power or a battery so we'll use a battery. It's an instrument clip-on mic, not a streo mic in case it makes any difference. The reason to use this is to avoid carrying a laptop and audio interface if it's not necessary.
