    How do I record crisp clear field recordings of one on one, hour long interviews, with musicians stopping through my town on tour? More than likely I will need to interview them on location, at the venue they are playing at that evening.

    Ideally the set up would be the equivalent of a mobile, talk radio, studio. Each person has their own microphone sitting across a table from one another.

    I'm looking at the Zoom H4N as it can accommodate 2 microphones and supply phantom power. I do however already have the Olympus LS-10.

    Considering the interviews will be on location at venues, there will probably be background noises from things like the stage crew, bartenders, etc... What are some microphone options that will minimize background noise? Shotgun mic's? Do lapel mic's make more sense?

    Any tips or tricks to minimize noise, and get crisp clear recordings would be much appreciated.
