    Thank you nemoDaedalus.

    your sounds would echo inside the barrel and you'd get audio sounding like it's recorded through a plumbing pipe

    That I get

    This cancels out sounds coming from the sides of the shotgun, therefor 'focussing' on what's directly in front of the mic.

    Can you elaborate how ?

    I found this definition at

    http://www.testing1212.co.uk/default.htm

    "Shotgun Microphone
    A microphone with a long line filter (a tube that acoustically cancels sound arriving from the side) to make the microphone pick up much better in one direction than in any other direction. "

    Fine, I believe it but how does it work ?. What physics are involved ?

    I am even more curious now !

    Hi, this is kind of an odd request...I once downloaded a great soundpack with a few swishes, but now I can't remember the name of it...and I can't find it through search.

    But I used the sounds for the opener of the following video, so maybe you guys could help me out?

    Thanks in advance!

    I'll give it a shot, but won't be offended if it's not the voice you're looking for wink
    Will post the link once it's approved.

    Also if the openings wouldn't be there, your sounds would echo inside the barrel and you'd get audio sounding like it's recorded through a plumbing pipe.

    we are doing a radio show (house music themed show) aimed at brits over in america. We have a section called the "big apple brits big three" where me and the presenters pick a tune each for the theme of that show. Were trying to get it professional sounding and voice overs would be a start - I really need someone out there to record themselves saying this. .. "the big apple brits big three"
    something computer sounding like the link i have attached would be great, male or female sounding wouldnt matter but the "big three" section would need to be emphasized

    http://www.freesound.org/samplesViewSingle.php?id=54633

    can anyone help out?
    thanks

    Does anyone know of an affordable A/B switch for 1/8" stereo audio cables? What I'm trying to do is share my PC's speaker system with my Mac. I used to have a KVM switch with audio support that worked for this purpose, but that was so flaky (unrelated to audio) that I had to replace it and the new one doesn't have audio support. So now I mostly use headphones when working on the Mac and once in awhile I go through the trouble of disconnecting the speaker system from the PC and plugging it into the Mac. Would be great to have an A/B switch, like the old one I have for parallel printer cables, for the audio. I'd make one myself but I'm not really that savvy with that sort of thing...

    There's a review here:
    http://www.bradlinder.net/2009/03/zoom-h4n-review.html

    That guy has my cat! :lol:

    So Zoom sort of went from too-difficult to too-easy for SD card removal. Nice... :cry:

    Otherwise, the H4n looks very attractive. I really like my company's H4, it has been very handy for doing on-the-street interviews (using external mics) and, of course, many other applications.

    One key problem with the H4 is that you can't take a .WAV file right from the device and sync it to video, because the timing(?) is slightly off and you can hear the sync drift after a relatively short time. You can get around this by connecting the line-out to the computer and then recording that, but that's clunky, slow (real-time), and does not preserve the pure digital workflow I like to maintain. I would be very interested in knowing if this has been corrected in the H4n, as that alone could justify the upgrade.

    Also interested in the "stamina mode" because the H4 is -- like many battery-powered electronics -- hyper sensitive to having fully-charged batteries, and I hate re-charging batteries that still have a lot of power left (at least according to my battery meter) but which the H4 says are "low."

    I'll show you the animation aftrewards, if you want.

    Yes please.

    I forgot to mention that these might be of use to you:

    Oh and you might have to add a little reverb to the pickaxe sounds.

    Does anybody know why the barrel of these mics is not a complete tube / cylinder ? They all have grilles incorporated into them, am I right in thinking that a complete cylinder with the cardioid or hypercardioid at one end would result in attenuation of some if not all frequencies due to standing wave phenomena or similar ? This question has intrigued me for some time now.

    And what about a comparison between the H4n and the Tascam DR-100?
    The ability to record 4 channels of the H4n, or the handy wheel input gain control and the pair of omnis on the DR-100?
    Which one do you think is the best?

    I ment not a single sound, but more, for it not to get boring. I am working on a school animation about a miner.
