I need to record a room for every single possible sound that might occur (vocals, bumps and bangs..anything).

The set-up needs to be portable, durable, and reasonably priced so I'm thinking of using a minidisc recorder and a decent condenser microphone (with a good frequency response - 20 - 20kHz if poss).

Does anyone have any tips as to how I should go about this/what equipment to use? Any recommendations for a good mic?

Should I be using a low > medium impedence converter? (obviously, I'll need an XLR > 3.5mm balanced line)

Also, if I want to record in stereo or multiple channels.. any recommendations for a good, cheap, portable pre-amp or mini-mixer?

Any help would be greatly appreciated...
