    I just bought a Sound Devices 702 --- delivery should be by or on December 2nd, 2016.
    After using Zoom H4N, and Marantz PMD661 (modified by Oade Brothers) I am moving up due to the wanting and needing the very quiet pre-amps of the Sound Devices. I am a Radio Producer for a Public Radio Station in the U-S , focusing on in the field interviews with scientists. Everything I produce and air, has to have great sound quality from my guests, PLUS, my radio features are very rich in natural sounds.
    To keep the quality of my future projects as high as possible, I plan on using my SD702 at the highest sample rate -- 192Khz -- and 24 khz bit depth. I often use the Beyerdyamic Omni Dynamic ME58 microphone for these ' in the woods ' interviews with great results. I will spend several hours in heavy woods or fields and the Beyerdynamic simply does not have any handling noise!
    That being said, two questions though from those of you who have already been using the SD702.

    (1) To save space on my CF cards on my IN-STUDIO interviews where I am not concerned with recording nature backgrounds, I am considering just recording in MONO on my SD702, BUT, then creating the "stereo" in Post production. Does anybody else do this ??

    (2) Since CF Cards are generally more expensive that SD cards, do you (2-A) SAVE all of your CF Cards to act as a backup? (*Of course in addition to transferring the audio to a larger external hard drive*)
    OR, do you (2-B) due to the price of CF cards, do you simply back up all of your SD702 to an external hard drive , then RE-FORMAT and RE-USE the CF card?

    Many thanks for any input SD702 users can give is greatly appreciated. Can't wait to get the in the field with my SD 702.

    Sometimes when i download files that look like MP3 files, They download as another file instead and i cannot add it to my music or anything because the file is not registered 'as an MP3 file' as it should.

    Thanks Timbre.

    I already checked those out.
    It's really cool that they are included.

    Hope they get developed further.

    You're best bet is to try and recreate this soundscape from the ground up. I don't think there are many (if any) people that go to Afghanistan specifically to take some sound recordings (let alone upload them here!).

    I would recommend you look for explosions and gun sounds on here, and then tweak them however you require to create the soundscape you are after.

    A quick search for distant explosions can be found here.

    Or if none of those work, you can always take a look at the sounds of closer explosions, and try to recreate distance yourself using equalization, echo and any other plug-ins you have.

    For the gun sounds, you can apply the same principles.

    As for the voices, you can find some pretty nice screams on this site that you can tweak and add to the explosions and gun sounds you've already added from above. Finding voices specifically in Arabic will be a lot more harder, particularly ones of good quality, and is something I recommend you try to record yourself. However, a quick search of "arabic" on this site could pull up some interesting results.

    Outside of Freesound, there are some sound libraries that can offer several war sound effects and soundscapes, but of course, those can cost money. One cheap library I recently looked at is "CaptainAudio" from Sound Ideas, which has two war soundscapes you might find useful.

    In the end, I think it is far easier to simply recreate the sounds you are after, rather than trying to chase down an authentic war zone recording from Afghanistan.

    Excellent work - sounds like it could have come straight from a film score!

    I'm an eager fan of all Classical musics, so I'll certainly be looking forward to the completed piece!
