    hi there,
    i have been looking at getting a minidisc player for field recording purposes and would like some advice/opinions on my choices, i have chosen this minidisc player
    http://www.amazon.co.uk/Sony-MZ-NH900-Silver-Hi-MiniDisc-Walkman/dp/B0001ZN768/ref=sr_1_12?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1209577227&sr=8-12
    and this stero microphone
    http://www.guitarampkeyboard.com/options.php?id=1534&gclid=CKCtj5mqg5MCFQGtQwodlV4bDw
    basically, i was wondering if people think these will be good for field recordings
    also, a more specific (if perhaps noobish) question is:
    the minidisc player has a 'mic-in' input - will this be a stero input? ie: will it make stereo recordings with the stero mic plugged into the mic-input?
    any advice/info/help would be much appreciated,
    thanks very much

    Would it be possible to add rudimentary formatting capability to the editor of the sound descriptions? Even just <br> or <P></P> and &nbsp; so that hard breaks can be put in place. The continuous wrap can make things hard to read.

    Thanks.

    It seems like it would be easy to add a counter to the display for each sample listing how many times the sample has been played. Maybe you thought of this already and rejected it, but if not it would be kind of interesting.

    Could you create a link between this text
    Additions in last 48 hours...
    and this uri
    http://freesound.iua.upf.edu/latestUploads.php
    so that when I come to the site I can click on the text and be able to browse the newly uploaded files.

    And I have a question about the other link, the RSS feed.
    http://freesound.iua.upf.edu/rss.php
    Can I just set this up as a server in my newsreader (Pan), or do I have to do something special like using an RSS reader?

    Thanks for all your work in creating and maintaining this site.

    Mark Nelson at oreillynet.com has written a bunch of great reviews comparing various field recorders, including the PCM-D50 and the H4. He even includes audio of what they sound like both the built-in mics and other mics.

    Click on the "articles" tab and check them out. They're great reads.

    Hope this helps,

    Yea but as far as I know people don't go to soundlantern and make freesound accounts and post about how great freesound is. I mean they managed to draw me in just fine without posting in any forums other than their own...

    and I'm going to have to agree with sanus I love it here at freesound... Home sweet home...

    nice! im drooling digifish!
    i had the pleasure of using the r-4 last week, and was pretty impressed with it.
    i noticed though that the new r-44 does not have the same selector for line-level or mic-level switch, located just below the analog input terminals, as the r-4.
    i was planning on interfacing a sound devices 442 mixer on the r-44 to hopefully further improve the quality and versatility. is this advisable, or is it good enough as direct connection?

    thanks!

    mark

    Hi Mark,

    the R44 has a variable (9 step?) sensitivity adjustment from Line to Mic levels (outer ring on the front 4 knobs) and then a trim for each level (inner ring). Whether or not the internal mic-pres are good enough will depend on the mic and sound you are recording. I am really not sure at the moment how the internal mic-pres compare to a Sound Devices MixPre that I have been using. I have been experimenting (one evening only so far) and think the main differences come at the upper end of the gain, MixPre is quieter. But I plan do do some objective comparisons soon...stay tuned...

    one failing of my RC09 I feel is the LCD in bright light ( read daylight ) i don't know is it my unit?

    so this a totally different kettle of (digi)fish to the rc09 - which has (kindly put) average pre-amps?

    I am feeling gear lust when I look at it.....

    how u feel it is for film production sound?

    looking forward to your post!

    I am currently working as Audio Production Manager For Cambridge University and Anglia Ruskin Student Radio (CUR1350). We are a volunteer based organization currently broadcasting on AM and online at www.cur1350.co.uk
    We are currently overhauling our bed and jingle database and need volunteers to record voice overs in the radio style. We currently have some voice over artists but i have found some fantastic voice samples here on freesound and hoped i would get some good results!
    If you can record the voice overs in as high quality as possible and then post them up. I can let you know if they get used in a jingle or bed.
    I understand not hearing the backing music makes it hard to know how to say phrases but if you can do various ideas we can adapt them to the music we compose. We are looking for voices which adhere to our Brand image which is Professional, Authoritative and Confident, but still retaining the Student air of Fun. Both female and Male voices are needed.
    None will be used for commercial use only for CUR based jingles and bed's.

    Below i have given examples of phrases to say.
    Examples

    'CUR1350 (pronounced 'See You Are Thirteen-Fifty')'
    'CUR1350 Radio'
    'Cambridge University and Anglia Ruskin Student Radio'
    'CUR1350 News'

    any combination of the above in various rhythms and voices would be perfect.

    Thanks,
