Old thread reached bump limit and 404'd, so I figured I'd start a new one of these. Share your new and old recordings, tips and tricks, gear and equipment recommendations, etc.
Just went out in the field with my new Tascam DR-100MkIII. Was rather impressed with the preamps and quality of the recordings but I still have to get the hang of the proper input levels.

Here's a recording taken today at a new spot I visited, along with the desert spring in pic related. The recording has been unedited aside from cutting off the head and tail of the recording and boosting the loudness to TR-B32 standards. I had the input levels set at "18.0" while recording, as well as the built-in low-cut filter set to 220Hz. Huge improvement over the DR-05, probably even more so when I get better at using the device to its full potential. Let me know what you think, thanks! The band-tailed pigeons periodically hooting in the background are my favorite part. Thankfully the recorder did not pick up much of the thousands of flies/mosquitos/annoying flying insects swarming my exposed skin and face. They weren't bad in the meadow areas but were hellish in the shade of the forest canopy.

And here's another from today that I just uploaded, a duet by a pair of Scott's Orioles. Really beautiful songs they have, IMO.

Here's one more clip highlighting the song of the Scott's Oriole. This audio was a happy incidental result of trying to chase down and photograph one of these birds. While in the process of stalking it up the hillside, this guy re-located right next to my active recorder, so I was able to capture this very clear audio. Might have to try this form of strategic relocation again in the future!

There's so much going on in that first one. There's also this pecking noise from around 8:00 on, that's the part I like best, the place feels really alive. Those Scott's Orioles in the second one are beautiful, one of them has a throaty voice that feels like it's one the verge of breaking up, it's great. But as far as pure birdsong goes I like the third one more, the second one is strongly focused too but sounds more roomy.
For this one >>1293460 yeah it's pretty noisy, but perhaps take the levels down a bit in post? It works better as an ambient thing than as a focus on the birds imo

For me it's similar to photography. I enjoy documenting the places I go, and it's challenging to get a really vivid sense of place in a recording. I listen back over the years and it's like being immersed in the time and place I was at all over again, like a sonic scrapbook. I like all my recordings but they get better over time, just like the way photos preserve memories. The difference is the soundscape is much more immersive, it documents the entire environment around you just as it happened. I like to think of photography being able to capture the corner of the restaurant you were sitting, or the food on the table, but sound recordings are almost like capturing the smell of the kitchen.
>>
>>1301188
Not to diss or anything but why did you try it if you can't see the appeal? If you have no interest on the subject matter it's pretty obvious the collecting is going to be bland.

Last thread I did a long, pretentious drunken rant about the nature of sound. It all boils down to curiosity, the will to experience things in a different way, and the love of both the recording practice and of what you record.

You really don't know until you try. It is about perspective change. I didn't know until I tried and what I saw was a deep well. I don't collect anything not directly useful to me now.

Field recording is an exercise of patience and exploration, both of which I find generally beneficial and productive to have in life. It also makes you listen out for smaller details in your environment, which contributes to how you perceive - well, anything really. Attentiveness is
a virtue.

That said, a lot of specifially wildlife recordists use the "drop and recover" technique which I don't think really practice any of these skills (or at least not as much); I think those people just like nature.

i.e the type of recording where I'm not necessarily recording a specific bird/group of birds.

I was trying to differentiate between pointing a directional mic at a bird that is singing or leaving a mic in a location to catch the entire ambience of the area.

I'm looking at omni-directional, because I'm interested in capturing the sounds of the forests as well as the birds.

And like I said, not necessarily setting up a mic to record a specific bird in one area
>>
>>1312510
Depends on your budget mang, probably want to start with something like the H1 or the DR-05 but if you want to expand to external mics someday you might want a bigger unit (although it might be best to just start with a small/convenient recorder and then upgrade altogether someday)

Tascam DR-05 is a great choice as a beginner, it's cheap (I bought mine for $89) and very user friendly. If you place it in a good spot with a lot of close activity you will make some decent recordings. I used one for 6 months and was pretty satisfied with the results but keep in mind it has pretty shitty pre-amps so quite a bit of self-noise/hiss that is hard to get rid of with editing. Because of that I saved up and switched to a Tascam DR-100mkIII (~$400) which has much higher quality pre-amps and the ability to upgrade to high-quality external mics via XLR connectors. I would recommend both but if you have the money I would recommend getting a DR-100 or equivalent from the start for more options. The MkIII is vastly improved over the MkII so don't think they are equivalent models aside from the name.

I was also looking into the Zoom H4N Pro before deciding on the Tascam, which supposedly has pretty high quality pre-amps so sound quality should be good. It's available for $200 and seems to be built with the field-recording market in mind.

I've uploaded several files for both the DR-05 and DR-100 if you're interested in some samples.

Also, make sure to invest in a good tripod and windscreen from the start.

My Sunday morning recording poses a few challenges. An opossum savagely attacked the right mic chomping off some pieces and carried it off a way. Then at sunrise a couple songbirds landed right on the mics and sent the levels to 0.0
>>1311524
Conditions are ideal here, but whenever there’s downtime I have loads of old recordings to edit
>>
>>1312852
Yeah, you need to make sure you wash your hands with unscented soap before handling anything that stays out in the field. Also, the mic covers and dead cats need to be washed from time to time in the same manner. They can pick up cooking odors (and other interesting odors) from your home that animals will be attracted to.
>>
went to the beach but it was slackwater and I forgot my preamps. living is painful lads
>>
>>1312865
>failure to observe olfactory discipline
Should have mentioned that the mic itself was unscathed. The foam windscreen took the brunt of mr Opossum’s rage, triggered possibly by the absence of bait.

if you don't really need them to be that long in the end, i'd try to stay below chops of 2GB. Several wave editors ran into problems opening bigger files.
Uploading such size monsters only makes sense when the last bit of quality is required for production. FLAC may help for archiving without loss (50%); ogg or mp3 for all the rest of uses.

Currently scrounging around my scrap materials bins and the industrial zone dumpsters, looking for suitable baffle material for a Jecklin.. The gear for a spaced pair practically fits in my pocket but it takes ages to set up for good results, until I'm more experienced it kind of defeats the "on the go" mentality. The trade-off is painful.
Haven't recorded anything in two months but shitty city ambiences, but I found a spot in the nearby woods with incredibly close birdsong in the shrubs and short saplings by a footpath. Might have a go at it next week I hope.
In the meantime, fantastic material by digrpat as always.
>>1326454 all online services convert the files when you upload them, some are more sketchy than others (MJC had really helpful advice regarding Youtube's procedure in the last thread if anyone else is interested.) IMO lossless isn't of much use for diffusion once you exit the production stage because it'll be butchered after. Just like with video (which is another whole can of worms) it's much more necessary to tailor your export to the specific platform or device you have to use.

they left the melon alone probably because there was better bait nearby.
concatenating tracks should be possible in any audio editor. go to track 1 "select all" then copy to clipboard. go to track 2 put the cursor at 0:00 and paste. The weird part is Rx 6 allows you to create wav files that are way bigger than the 4 gigs that unsigned integer could address. even stranger is that many other programs handle these monsters just fine.

So I'm taking Herpetology this semester and part of our grade is taking an inventory of the amphibians in a wetland by identifying frog calls. I was wanting to pick up a recorder so I could replay them later to help identify them. Would a Tascam DR05 be good for this? I've seen it recommended in this thread and threads before, but I wanted to make sure the audio would be clear enough to pick up frogs calling across a small lake and make identification easy. I'm a total beginner to this, so any help would be appreciated.

Yeah the DR-05 will be quite good for that. Like most entry/midlevel handheld recorders it has some nasty handling noise so get a little tripod or be prepared to prop it up to record, rather than hold it. But in terms of sensitivity and noise, it'll be good. Just set your record levels, point and shoot.

The song at the beginning of the recording is a Common Yellowthroat. Eastern Towhee is singing throughout, with a Song Sparrow singing a couple times and an Ovenbird heard more distantly at one point. The trills throughout are some type of tree frog.

With sundown at 7:30 it's hard to get out there with 20lbs of raw chicken and 3 salamis before dark. The resident coyote began singing while I was still in the area.

Bump, attempted to get a field recording at a rapid stream, might have actually been too close, active and loud to make for a good recording (water sounded like noise/hiss), will have to edit it later. Any tips on recording near loud water sources?

So,this is something that happened to me, but what would you all do if you found out that your recordings had been used in a video, but you've been credited without you ever knowing.
>>
>>1386721
I do photography and this has happened to me before. If whoever is stealing my shit isn't making money from it I don't care but I'd still try to contact them to credit me properly with at least a link to my flickr when that's not already the case. I did not have to deal with someone using one of my picture in monetized content yet but if it happened I'd threaten them with some legal action even if I would not even bother actually doing anything.

Depends on whether its used in a good or shitty production.

A little mystery for Halloween. There's a sound of tires howling at sunset but (pic related) only horse trails and unpaved logging roads nearby.

My guess is that a bowhunter on an ATV was racing to get back before dark.

I’d like to get recordings for every month this year. I can tell it’s been a good year by the way my backpack smells: Smoke, DEET, coyote bitch-in-heat urine, catfish bait, chicken blood, cinnamon, bacon fat, and skunk.

Any tips on solo filming a nature documentary? I’ve been thinking of starting easy and doing one about the wildlife in my city (Denver). I’ve had no luck with this on /an/ or /tv/.
I would like to narrate myself, too. People always told me they enjoyed me reading in class, and I do have a very soft voice though I think it is kind of reedy. I know my voice is soft because I’ve been told that a lot and I have always had hearing loss.

Listening to examples on youtube, their sound is hard to describe. Last year with my Sony PCM-D100 I got something similar, like a baby crying and buzzing bees. The trailcam showed a possum in the area. I was hoping the skunk scent would attract owls or other predators. One weird sound I recorded last week was probably squirrels in their nest
