My field recordings are made with iPod Touch 4G, Tascam iM2 stereo capsule microphone, and the TwistedWave recording/editing app. I may use my more interesting recordings as ambient sounds or samples in my music. My footsteps, voice, and occasional flatulence may occur in my recordings because I am not a ninja. I wear the iPod on an armband or in my pocket with the mic sticking out. I put a thin sock over the mic in inclement weather. I'm not sure if that is a good idea or not.
