I'm not answering the question because this wasn't a recording of my own, but made by a classmate of mine. I've heard the recording a couple of times and I think it's worth well telling. This classmate (Claas) was recording a bell of a railroad crossway in the middle of nowhere when a guy suddenly walked up to him and tried to ask him something. Claas ...

Tried to freeze a microphone into a puddle overnight so I could record people iceskating over it the next day. Mic didn't live through the night. :( Successfully stuck a contact mic onto our cat's belly and got a good 30 minutes of purring footage, which was later turned into the sound of a much larger beast type animal, with surprisingly little processing. ...

First time I recorded bat sonar with a heterodyne bat detector was strange. It took a few moments for it to sink in that an animal was responsible for those sounds. [soundcloud]london-sound-survey/pipistrelle-bat-sonar[/soundcloud]

The 744T user guide mentions : The 744T is equipped with a record start and stop timer. This allows a user to record a take at a specific time from an unattended recorder. Set the start time in the Setup Menu option REC: TIMER START then set the record stop time in the Setup Menu option REC: TIMER STOP. The 744T will only start recording if ...

To offer an actual answer to the question instead of a string of comments, I would start with just one or the other mic, get what you like out of it, then add the second. My choice is the D6 at the soundhole of the cajon, because that will give you the fundamental bass "thump" of the thing, as well as a decent amount of the snares, tambourine or other ...

Surely the portable recorder has a micro SD card? I would remove the Micro SD card and then use an SD card adapter and reader to transfer the files. If this is not the case or you cannot remove the SD card for whatever reason, there are any number of voice recorder apps in the App Store you can try. I would also be checking that the cable isn't faulty. Try ...

Do never touch your needle with your finger! Usually there is a small carbon needle brush provided with each new cartridge. I got one with each of my Ortofon cartridges and with the Shure I bought once, so I guess this is standard, though you might get one in commerce if you don't have any. In order to clean your stylus from small fibers, etc. just brush ...

I don't know if this is approved of, but I have a little brush that I use. It's about 3 inches long with the handle and I can't remember where I got it, but it's not too rough and works perfectly. Needless to say, I use it carefully. I pull the actual needle out(Sure & Stanton cartridges) every few months to get right up inside with the brush. I think I ...

Do your mics sound good individually? We actually experience phase issues everywhere. This is what gives a space it's sound and what changes the sound of an object or microphone when placed around in a space. However in the OPs case it's quite likely that the two mics are out of phase. As a common example, this occurs each time you mic up a snare drum on ...

You need two things to make this work: 1) You need a MICROPHONE INPUT connector on your computer. This is typically color pink exactly like the plug in your photo. 2) You need to tell the operating system WHICH microphone to listen to. Most computers use the internal microphone by default, and if you plug in an external microphone (into the MIC input ONLY!)...

The mic100 only has balanced in/outs. If there is some specific reason you want to use this piece of gear then I would suggest you get a DI-Box. It takes a 1/4" unbalanced and gives you a balanced XLR output. The pre-amp is not needed in a functional sense for what you're doing so keep in mind, unless you're trying to get the "sound" of that piece of gear it'...

Pressed records, although stronger than a cut lacquer, are still susceptible to damage, especially the grooves. So you're very well likely out of luck. If you can hear the damage, then you do have surface the damage, because you will hear whatever the needle is tracking, both good and bad. I believe there are cleaning solutions which can be used with ...

Sex scene production sound. It was for a short film with a really professional crew. So it was this weird vibe like these people on screen are almost totally naked (with socks covering their bits) and yet the crew was just like, lets do the work. It was an odd sound when i played it back.
