  1. Yes, I've heard of this and like the sound of it. But I don't think I could get it to work with my RH10 MD recorder without spending lots of money, could I?
  2. I was watching Howel's Moving Castle the other day, and was stunned to hear how little mic noise there was during foley sounds as small as fabric moving and skin chafing. How on Earth did they achieve such pristine quality with such minute sounds? What sort of signal-to-noise ratio would you need on a mic in order to record such things with virtually no self-noise or "hissing"? Could someone point me towards the sort of mic I'd need for this?
  3. Hi all Just finished uploading the 'Stock Sounds' section of my site, check it out: http://www.nickbertke.com/stocksounds.html There's quite a few in there that were recorded on holiday in Singapore. Enjoy!
  4. I backup vinyls myself, and I find a good high source volume will ensure you get as little preamp and phono noise as possible.
  5. All speakers sound different, especially when they're in different environments. Unless you have a good pair of studio monitors in a proper mastering room, you'll never get something that sounds perfect accross the globe. Binaural recordings should always be listened to with earphones. This way the sound is injected straight into your eardrum, as opposed to being circulated around the entire ear.
  6. Ah, thanks smkranz. I'll try that out the next time it happens, for now I've just recorded the track again and it's worked fine. It seems these Hi-MD's are picky about what you do when they're writing to disc.
  7. The error is right up there, that's all I was given. My SonicStage is 3.4.01
  8. I get this error when trying to upload a simple PCM recording I made from the TV just now using my RH10. Is there actually a way around this or am I destined to just forget about this recording with this half-ass heap-o-sh*t software?
  9. I've also got an RH10 and the noise isn't that bad. It only happens at the worst when you starting recording for the first time after powering up. After that, it's just light sounds of the temp-data being written to disc when the memory fills up (is that right? I really just pulled that outa my @ss...) But yeah, just stuff the thing into your pocket when recording and she'll be right (assuming your mic is on a lead?)
  10. Does GoldWave not have Normalize? Normalizing looks for the loudest peak in the sound wave and amplifies the entire wave equally until that peak reaches 100%. You could also try Hard Limiting which increases the volume of the wave even without reaching 100% (I think it's just like Normalizing only it operates on a sample-basis rather than a peak-basis)
  11. Quietest mic around ey? Well that's gotta be pretty damn quiet. I'll definately take a looksy into that one. Thanks fellas Oh and um, I don't suppose there are any sample recordings with this mic floatng around are there?
  12. Hi all I've heard some ambience recordings in films that are of SUCH quiet sounds yet there still remains hardly any hiss what so ever. Truely amazing. What the hell mics do these guys use?! Sheit! I have a pair of TFB-2s myself but even they give off some pretty harsh hiss when recording nature/trees in the wind. I guess my other question is, just for fun, how would you go about developing a zero-hiss/hoise mic? Wouldn't that mean a zero-electricity microphone too?
  13. I've noticed this, yes. The treble is significantly reduced. Why this happens I have no idea, perhaps the device is less compatible with the MP3 format but I can't understand how.
  14. I have a good 10 - 15 records on my MD, and Sonicstage crashes when I try to upload any one of them. Why is this? Cheap software maybe? Is there anything else out there which does the same job?
  15. Well I've figured something out. Spectrum Matching is as good as I can get it. Voxengo CurveEQ manages to do a good automatic job, but further manual matching is required. What I did was this. With the mics in my ears, I put on some headphones and recorded them playing an MP3. I then uploaded that recording to the computer and compared it to the MP3 file. Not bad at all. After spectrum-matching between the real MP3 and the recording, I now have a good EQ adjustment which I apply to all of my recordings now. Listen for yourself: http://www.sfhsjournal.com/hdrifiles/Real,...eal,%20mics.mp3 1. Real MP3 2. TFB2 recording 3. Real MP3 4. TFB2 recording This is as close as I can get it so far. I've come to a conclusion that the stereoscopic realism which binaurals give you is far greater when using earbuds than headphones (those which go over your ears.) I don't really know why this is exactly; maybe it's because the sound is more directed into your ear with earbuds where as headphones tend to surround the entire ear with it; I dunno.
