OMG i would totally appreciate that. The actual clip i found was:
Just 0:03 to 0:08 is all i need. I attempted to try myself but i'm not too familiar with the program needed. (The whole warning part)
Thanks again. ^^
If you are using it exclusively for film and have no issues with sample rate there are lots of choices. I am a cheap bastard and after 2 years of plotting dropped $80 on what some purists with a full range of hearing and a valid credit card would scoff at, but it works for me (Olympus DS-40). There are even portable multitrack recorders if you don't mind buying microphones where you can set up complex recordings with alternate vantage points and stuff. The Zoom H2 also does this and is fairly cheap ($200), this was my original wish until the industry I work in imploded and I found out I can't hear high frequencies anymore anyway. The Zoom files can be converted to surround sound with some googling as well, which might be something you could use.
If you will be working with DVD video, and you use a recorder with a sample rate other than 48khz, you will get a sync drift if recording large audio sequences at the same time as the video. If you want the most flexability, I would suggest getting one with built in mics and microphone jacks so you can handle any application.
I was using a monophonic USB microphone and a laptop and I looked like an idiot at the beach, I am sure. Plus who needs monophonic field recordings? (I am sure someone does actually). The cheapo recorder I bought doubles as a stereo USB interface that I can plug a higher quality microphone or mixer in down the road and still use the laptop to record higher fidelity stuff. I am trying to upload a massive sample pack right now of the DS-40 without a windscreen right now. Next will be the recordings with a homemade fur windscreen ($.27 at a fabric store and some thread) and then some direct to laptop recordings to see how they hold up. I have some hydrophone and contact microphone ideas in my head as well, I plan on using a balloon and old dead electronics, along with a soldering gun and some silicone to build some new microphones for cheap.
Ebay has some great deals so go to a music store and see if they have any of the models you can demo and then go pay half or less for it online. I have not bought anything from a music store except strings and last minute needs since 1986. Mail order and now online are way cheaper. If you can google well, you can find lots of sample recordings (on here and beyond) made with different recorders and configurations. Keep in mind not everyone knows what they are doing (for example some German podcasters were obviously not using the highest quality setting in the DS-40 when they recorded and commented on the artifacts). Also some people set out to prove something sucks and usually can, so keep that in mind as well. Some of the best recordings were made on less than perfect gear by less than perfect engineers and less than perfect musicians, subjects, etc.
Don't worry about a preamp for now. You said you want to record on a shotgun mic for dialogue and general film related recording, will you be doing everything yourself (filming, recording, interviewing...)? If so, then you won't want a boom with a shotgun mic as it will be tricky juggling between everything.
If a shotgun mic is important to you, then it really depends on your budget, what kind of productions you will be using it for and what recorder you get. You'd probably be fine getting something like the Zoom H4 which has all you need (XLR+phantom+onboard) and isn't too expensive, this way you don't need an external preamp. My opinion (get many) is you should get a better sounding recorder such as the Sony PCM-D50 and see how you go without any external mics. If you really feel you need it then you can worry about it then.
I have my eye on is the Premix from Sound Devices, but that is because I want to use the Sony PCM-D50 with a the MKH 418s and it needs phantom power to run. Its quite expensive though (over $500). If you are using the onboard mics only don't worry about getting an external preamp cause usually they are designed so they match and don't create too much noise.
I hope this helps a little. Its really tricky to decide what gear you need/want/can afford.
Thanks for answering!
I know nothing about pre amps models, which one you think is appropriate in this case?
Well.. I did a recording of the good ol' 'caffettiera' http://www.freesound.org/samplesViewSingle.php?id=49435 but I guess it's not what you're after (although the coffee it makes is unique!!)
hi, I have a friend who does lots of recording for film. He just bought himself the Sony PCM-D50 to keep on him because its small enough. He says he can't believe how good the on-board mics sound and how accurate the stereo is. It doesn't have XLR inputs, but does have a mini-jack input (no phantom power). So depending on the mic you'd want to attach it could be fine.
I have the Fostex FR-2 at the moment (the big brother of the FR-2 light) and I'm selling because of its size. I love it to bits, but I just never end up having it on me. I decided to sell it and get the Sony PCM-D50 so I can always have it on me. And for times I need to do record on other mics then the onboards, I'll get a good portable pre-amp.
The microtrack has very noisy pre-amps. If you really want a cheaper option with XLR's and on-boards and all, maybe the Zoom H4 could work. It sounds better the the microtrack.
There is a bunch of ways, it depends what platform and synths you are using. Do you mean you want to know how to make a synth sound too or just the pitching up?
The easiest for pitching up, would be to record yourself playing (recording the midi notes or using the pitch wheel). Or you can use an automation track affecting the pitch and just draw it in. If your synth allows you to, you can use an envelope for pitch. You could also just get a sample and use that, I'm sure there are tons here.
Do you have Absynth from Native Instruments? That's a good versatile synth that will allow you to do this easily.
Hope this helps.

Use Audacity or any sound recording program like it (its free)
Pause the video set audacity to record the stereo mix and go record and play. This is copyrighted as far as I'm concerned so I would be careful?
Replay Media Catcher and FLV to AVI also work for the Video.
If you cant do it message me, I'll do it.
You know the music I'm talking about. When the guy and girl see each other from far away and then they run towards each other and kiss passionately. It's some sort of string instrumental I think. Any idea how I can find that? I have no idea what the name of the song is or what to even type in google to find it.
Hello everyone! I was just wondering if anyone could possibly make or somehow record the intro of the girls gone wild commericals. Like the "WARNING blah blah blah" part. A video clip of that part would be even better but the sound recording will just do fine as well. I just want to make a funny youtube video is all.
Any help is appreciated, thanks. ^^
hey guys, how can I make a synth sound (any kind) for electronic music that starts down in the pitch and grows and grows till the last key. I know is kind of hard to explain without a sample. Im gonna look for one and post it as soon as i can. think about a break on electronic music.
thanks to all
I'm looking for a portable recorder for field, foley and on stage recordings (film dialogue). I've taken a look at M-Audio Microtrack II, Edirol R09 HR, Sony PCM D50 and Olympus LS-10 over the internet, and I wonder which one would you recomend... I notice that the only one among these that have 48v phantom power is the Microtrack, which makes it the best choice for foley and film dialogue recordings (with a shotgun mic); am I correct?
Thank you very much, guys!!!!
Sinatra, I like the first one.
im looking for some samples of people saying things in jamaican patois. its surprisingly hard to come by online.
Your welcome and thanks for the response. I wish in my case it was just tinnitus, which is not necessarily hearing loss in itself but a ringing in the ear caused by a few variables. I have taken multiple test tones from various sources and it seems I cannot hear anything above 13k! and I am a few years away from 40. It must have been the blasting of the car stereo or a genetic gift from my grandfather (hope I don't get all the heart attacks as well, that would be just lovely).
So unless they get on this stem cell hearing folicle regeneration technology in a hurry, I will be sonically screwed. The nasty critics at archive.org that said I had a tin ear were right! Holy crap, I am a total loser and downsampling all my WAV's to 64kps MP3 as we speak. I ripped all the tweeters out of all my speakers, poured glue over all my headphones, broke off the top octave of keys off my synth, snipped the high E string on my guitar and went on a mosquito and fly killing spree.
My WMA recording field recorder (Olympus DS-40) will be here soon and it will record sounds 6khz higher than I can hear! Best $80 I will ever spend on gear. I'll be saving a lot of money going forward by sticking with 8 bit gear and no longer buying q-tips. Ironically, my gun hand ear is a bit better than my other one and aside from the car stereo insanity of the late 80's and early 90's, that would be the culprit. I did go to an Eric Clapton concert in 1985 without earplugs, last time I ever did. Always wore them at band practice, gun range, concerts... they say the ipod generation will be in far worse shape so I don't feel that bad, just slightly doomed. I am hoping Dr Kavorkian opens an otology practice.
Here are a couple more. I'll be interested to know if you use either of these, not for credit or copyright, but just for fun.
Hey people on freesound,
I kind of already have this sound but found that through some sound finding site of which usage of the sounds isn't even stated, so I could well be using something I'm not allowed to use.
Since I found this site I thought I'd look it up here but after trying a bunch of keywords relating to biting/chomping/skull/dog(bite) I still didn't get what I wanted, mostly it was people eating apples/popcorn or brushing teeth.
Kind of wondering if anyone has a similar sound to this.
I have a little bit of audio editting skills so I can change the sound once I have it, but can't make it
Mostly looking for a Cartoony Bite sound but the sound is for a Skull so the closer it gets the better.
Here's a good software, called MorphVOX Pro on www.screamingbee.com. You can use it 7 days for free, after that you have to pay 39,95 dollar. There excist a free variant MorphVOX Junior with less possibilitys.
