    Does the 96.9098ms make any sense at 44100, samplewise?


    7 192 574 samples is the closest I got. To match the exact requirements we probably have to use much higher rate sampling. smile

    so, here's an absurd one.

    make a song of exactly 2 minutes, 43 seconds and 96.9098 milliseconds that uses frog and rain sounds only.

    post the song on ccmixter and post a link to it here, make sure the description of the song makes no sense at all. wink

    the weirder the song the better.

    for extra bonus points figure out why the song needs to be exactly that long and explain it's relation to the imaginary number i.

    Thank Afaict, that seems like sensible advice.

    I had read elsewhere here that OKMs are pretty noisy, which is a bit of a shame, but it doesn't look like there are many other choices unless you want to spend quite a lot more money eg Sonic Studios DSM mics.

    I'm recording with OKMs and the PMD 620 sometimes and I'm pretty happy with that. Yes, my OKMS are noisy. On mic in they are also extremely sensitive. When I bought them there was a line in adapter included (A3). It adapts the mic signal to line in, and provides power to the mic if needed. The FELs would do the same.

    I suggest you try if mic in makes you happy or not. I could try the A3 with the PMD and report the results. (I have'nt done this yet and I would need to find the adapter first....)

    The issue is whether your listeners will be able to reproduce infrasound on whatever speakers they are using, which is pretty unlikely. (Obviously by definition they won't be able to hear it either even if they could reproduce it on their kit, but it can still have an effect on people in other ways.) AFAIK only specialised speakers can reliably produce infrasound, also some of the larger pipes in church organs can do so.

    It might be useful for certain scientific or natural history subjects, eg elephants can communicate via infrasound. Fascinating topic anyway.

    Hello there, this is my first post here and hope someone can answer my query please.

    I want to start doing field recording and it looks like the Soundman OKM Studio mikes and Marantz PMD 620 recorder would be a good affordable combination.

    Would there be any point though in buying a battery preamp (eg one of the FEL ones) rather than just relying on the Marantz on-board preamp? Would there be that much less noise on the recordings to justify spending an extra £100?

    doh! I already uploaded one subway file and forgot about it! It was recorded riding the subway though, and from what I can remember you don't get a ton of subway sounds, just mostly talking. But I will be getting some more soon.

    I have a twist type of question....I like the sounds on this site (no idea how to make them myself) and I would like to know if they can be used in a video on youtube that promotes a product. (not my own, and the music files are not being sold, just used as background music.) I promote other people's products by creating a video for it and sending them to the product creators website.
    is this legal or can they not be used for that?
    thanks in advance for the advice

    I recorded the following audio file from a movie:
    www.megaupload.com/?d=NG9II1MX

    But I was unable to filter the beep and put it into a loop.
    Could anyone help me?

    Thanks.

    is this safe and if u say it is how do we no

    UbuntuStudio is a variation of Ubuntu Linux which is an operating system like windows or osX, but is free because it is not developed by large companies seeking money (like Micro$oft or Appl€), instead it is being developed by a large community of programmers totally free of charge. You can download the programming code they did to make it, and you can improve it if you know how, or you can even make suggestions so programmers can improve it.

    It is community based, just like wikipedia, and freesound are. That means everyone can contribute.

    UbuntuStudio is the variation of Ubuntu Linux specially configured for producing music, video and graphics. Just check their wiki it confirms exactly this that i am writing to you.

    Also about the performance, you can check it by yourself wink, but again just look at its System Requirements and see if your computer fits.

    You can download the image, burn a DVD and try it without installing it (booting your computer from the DVD and start it up with the LiveCD option). So go ahead. If you don't want to run from the DVD, and are planning on installing it on your hard-drive, i STRONGLY recommend that you backup your data first.

    So, just give it a try.
