    What is the best for field recording, 1x stereo microphone or 2x mono microphones?

    In most cases you have more control with a stereo microphone, but i think you can be more creative with a pair of mono microphones because you can make i wider stereo image if you put some distance between them, or put them close together to make a more compact stereo image, or in different positions to make a more experimental sound.

    I use both. My favourite single point stereo mic is the Rode NT4, fits nicely in a blimp and is easy to carry around...

    I also use a pair of AT3032 omni mics as a spaced pair or baffled as I did here...

    Overall the NT4 is much more convenient. If I had to choose, I would go single point stereo. But that would be sad smile

    You know that sound in cartoons where someone's on the phone and they speak normally but you hear the person on the other side as high-pitched nonsense?

    Yeah. I need that.

    Or, if it's possible to do it on my own I would like some advice on how to edit it (all I have is Audacity).

    I downloaded the latest firefox (3.0.5) source from the mozilla site, unpacked it, configured it, and compiled it. It still doesn't work to right click, but if I hold a shift key down and left click, it comes up with a dialog that allows me to download the file (or play it if I choose). Closer! It actually works to get the file directly.

    I had a quick look at the source for and 3.0.5, trying to find the difference that makes the difference and can't see anything. The function that does the download is almost identical, and reverting the changes has no effect. Firefox is a complex chunk of code and it is not easy to determine what is happening without really digging and getting familiar with program flow. The "save link target as..." command was dropped between the two versions and the code was eliminated. I think this was part of the refactoring between the versions.

    Some progress anyway.

    hey nc,

    are you using the ftp applet, or an ftp client?
    if the former (the applet), could you try a standalone client like filezilla (windows) or cyberduck (mac)?

    Hey everyone.

    I'm looking for the name of the sound effect when they cut between "outtakes" or bloopers. That little boop sound.

    2nd. I'm looking for a time lapse sound effect or some type of sound that wines up as the clips get faster or that last effect they use in shows like Lost just before they cut to black.
    Its kinda like a screatching, twirling effect that gets louder and then "bam" the episode is over and the word "Lost" comes at you.

    any ideas?

    Kinda like this..

    That effect when the camera is closing in on the main character because he has just discovered who killed his brother!!

    I am about to try and FTP client because lately, I have been encountering this scenario. Any file over I'd say 15mb doesn't seem to be able to upload unattended. I can upload 30 short snippets at a time and walk away and come back 4 days later, just kidding, and they are all there error free.

    However, when I throw in a 10 minute recording of birds having intercourse or paint drying, the file transfer is stopped on the malcontent file and I have to hit cancel, restart FTP applet, etc... pain in the ass I must say. It does not continue through the sequence of files as usual, it just hangs there. Sometimes it stops altogether at some unrelated portion say 56% and hangs forever but that only happens a time or two per batch. I upload 30 or more at a time usually and it's problematic

    Anyone else experiencing this or have a work around? I spent all last night uploading 5 or 6 files and started again this morning, at this rate my christmas stuff should be ready for st patricks day.

    Thanks for the great site by the way and merry christmas to all, unless it offends you, for those folks I'll add a happy friggin new year in as well.

    Can I first thank all of you for the feadback. Since originally posting this topic, I have so far had samples from limitedheadroom, Ermine, The Bloke 33 and ERH. But I am always open to more.. more... If anyone else should have any more or gets any more, drop me a private message please. I would like it if you can do that; The Bloke 33 uploaded 2 samples in Early March and I only just found them today!

    Thanks Matthew! That's the point, to convince her that she needs to GO TO SLEEP! smile It'll flip her out! Which, now that I think about it, might just make her all the more hyper. It'd be good just to see the look on her face!

    I've found the sleigh bells, I was just hoping get some that had Ho, ho, ho mixed in.

    Thanks again!

    I need an .mp3 or .wav of sleigh bells approaching then Santa saying "Ho, ho, ho" (with the sleigh bells still in the background) then the sleigh bells leaving. I am going to play this outside my daughter's window on Christmas Eve.

    Thank you so much!

    Most interesting and a creative way to let your daughter know Santa is coming! Slight problem though; he probably won't come as you will not be asleep! smile

    As for the sample request, if you type “Christmas bells” into the search engine you can find some slay bells without the “ho. Ho. Ho.” Not quite sure about it, if anyone else can help, please do so so that this method works!

    Good luck and merry Christmas!
