I am a single parent living with four small children in a condo. In the past year, my family has been suffering due to a noisy neighbor living directly above me. the HOA is asking for a recording of the noise. I have pleaded with them and they just don't care about me or my children. I wish I could move, but it's too expansive.
I have two problems: 1. the recording does not pick up the thumping sound. 2. I cannot be waiting for the noises to occur since we all should be sleeping for school the next day and/or by the time I start recording, the noise is over and I am trying to put my kids back to sleep.
I could use your help and advise in how to record these sounds
