    Hi Mike,

    Things went well and v1.1 finally shipped! You are mentioned w/a special thanks and a link to your website on the Oops I'm Late! main page. Thanks again for doing it.

    If you could also do one more thing; a "Cancelled.wav" sound, that would be great.

    Hopefully, in the future, the CC-licensed sounds can find their way into mix-ups, on youtube, etc. You never know. grin

    Best Regards,
    Alex

    Blow air very slowly and constanly to microphone, to get reality do it twice and put it together if you want to have stereo. Use compressors and eq during mix smile

    Now that I've discovered these in-ear binaural microphones I intend to use them for a variety of purposes, one of which is to record live performances. Check them out here: www.soundprofessionals.com/cgi-bin/gold/item/SP-TFB-2

    For $79, the audio quality is amazing. Listen to the sample recordings to get a feel for what a live performance recorded with them will sound like.

    This may not be what you're looking for, but you may want to consider recording binaural on top of what you would normally record, just to get a feel for both and which one you like better.

    As far as positioning, you'll want to be as close to center as possible, and about 200ft back from the stage.

    As far as gear to record with (since this is just a microphone) I also suggest buying the "recorder" adapter for the iPod and using that, or hooking up to an iRiver.

    That's just my 2 cents, hopefully it's of help to you!

    You could record the words yourself (or have someone here do it...) and process it with "AnalogX Scratch". But no warranty, I never tried that software, just googled it...

    I don't think that admins would rate their own samples high... If you can't trust them in that issue, maybe they don't deserve to be in an administrative position... And of course you could prevent this: I don't realy know, but I guess that there's something like an administration panel to review the sounds, where every admin logs in with his user name. Then you should disable rating for sounds that this admin uploaded himself.

    i doubt any one over the age of 16 can hear above 17k!

    and that age is probably dropping in direct proportion to the use of ipods and the like

    for me 48K is more than enough...

    so how's the hiss on this puppy?

    is it really out?

    It's out...

    The R-44 is definitely out, from a Japanese field-recordist...

    I searched in forums, articles and blogs - tons of technical infos, not one clear suggestion. I know the topic is vaste and that it's very hard to achieve a good record with one mic only ...maybe some of you faced the same situation.
    we play ballads, folk and standards, with no percussions, use to record rehearse but the result is low even for a pre-demo. unavoidable problems with different instruments: oboe has a strong voice, accordion reach very high freq, and only voice, guitar and contrabasso are amplified. I use a portable digital recorder with internal mics (Edirol R1). the best mic position appear to be near the center of room, actually close to the near field of most instruments. we can change our position for a better panning, but we can't have a bigger room, too expensive to rent! here's the playing situation:

    - a small rectangular studio room with two loudspeakers at corners
    - one voice, amplified
    - an acustic guitar, amplified
    - an acoustic contrabasso, amplified
    - accordion, oboe and violin, not amplified

    I can only buy a new microphone - not enough money and tech skill to buy other pro hardware.
    which microphone would you suggest to use? omnidirectional, hyper-supercardioid...?
    which recording technique would you suggest, using one mic? I thought of a stand to put the mic above heads

    thanks in advance smile

    I love Eyehategod, and Xasthur rocks.

    A good way to get hard, guitar-esque type sounds is to process your sound through distortion and guitar-amp processes. This works with pretty much any type of tone to get a nice metal crunch, but especially with a synth with a strong sawtooth wave.

    I like the sound of this idea. However it ain't very fair that you got the chance to vote high on your own samples. And the reason is because if they can, they'll propably will do that. So limit the first vote between 3 and 7. Maybe it's my swedish heritage that makes a reminder here, but for me it would be better if you could vote neither high nor low would be the most fair way to do it. I'm not any admin what so ever, but that's just my simple thought here.

    :quick edit:
    And while we're at voting I'd love to see not just the overall vote, but also votes for quality, idea, length etc. The reason is because then you could get a much more full rate of the sound. And just to clearify this right now: I vote for the samples I LIKE, and if I find use for it.
