A Place To Share Audio Files


Recommended Posts

Batteries lasting only 6 hours, dang. My Sony PX333 gets 3+ days on AAAs. It's on Amazon for about $200, think I bought mine for about $60. Previously purchased Sony PCMm10 (recommended) for just over $200, now selling used for $900. Edit to add, I see that one was discontinued. Wonder if I could get mine repaired.

 

I've seen the Zooms suggested, but have not tried them. I recommend dropping them in likely areas, not carrying around, humans make too much noise.

The Zoom H4n was designed for recording music, at up to CD quality audio levels. It wasn't designed with long-term recording in mind.

That's what we are looking for.  That level of sound quality to hopefully pick up some of the stuff that we have heard but was not picked up on our cameras.  

 

Almost went with the omnidirectional model, but this one seems to be more rugged.

 

Regardless of how anyone feels about Cliff Barackman, he has some great information on his sight about sound recorders.

Ah, I see. There are lots of good choices. I think I must have read Cliff's article in my initial search for the right tech, also Stan's info was helpful to me, although a bit older now.

Since I've been recommending Sonys, I looked up their current portable products.

Sony's repair service advised trying a local electronics repair, but the couple that I called were pretty much "sorry, no". I liked that recorder so much that I bought another used.

 

Here's a clip from the August trip I posted about, it's some kind of distant vocals, near salt water. Need headphones and max volume.

 Hope this is the right thread to share this, this is some the audio my group has managed to capture.

This was recorded on November 9th, 2018 near Macy Nebraska at 1 am. A few whoops caught amongst the many other loud birds.

Coyote howls from April 1st on the Omaha Reservation in Nebraska

 

Series of knocks that were 'interesting' recorded about an hour earlier at a different location on the Omaha Reservation.
