I need to record one-on-one interviews for a few of my methods classes and potentially, more research in the future. Please suggest equipment and/or software to make this as easy as possible.

I need to conduct several hours of interviews and then transcribe them. I am looking for equipment and software suggestions to make this process as smooth as possible. I live in a very Mac-centric world so any recommendations would need to fit in. I have an iPhone and iPad, but my guess as that a dedicated recorder would work better? Is there any software that will reliably transcribe the audio recording?
I am completely open to suggestions. As for a budget, I was thinking a couple of hundred for a device and about the same for any software. It would be a bonus if the recording device could record live music as well, but that is asking a lot for this price range. Thank you in advance for your suggestions.
I know this
thread exists, but 9 months can be a long time in the tech world. I found some good suggestions here
, but it doesn't cover everything.
