I'm doing more and more field recordings recently, starting to really like it, and I want to know more of it. Is there someone who using a Zoom H6 with its own mics for ambience recording? If so, what is your working process? How do you set up the Zoom, and what do you do after that? How do you process the sounds?
I'm focusing on early morning bird chirps right now, set up my Zoom before I go to sleep. I'm using the "general" limiter because I'm afraid that if there would be a sudden cool sound It might be clipped (like a thunder that come out of nowhere). My level is usually on 9-10, it is very noisy of course. Then I do a little noise reduction, EQ and normalization in Izotope... but most of what I do is came from speculations. I's sure there are better tehnices that can bring the best out of the H6 and the recordings.
Thanks in advance!
