Dear all

Firstly I want to thank the regulars who post to the group for the wealth o=
f information you have provided.  And secondly sorry to be asking yet more =

Unfortunately I am not much closer to making an informed decision about wha=
t would suit me best for nature recording.

In the city I've been using Soundman binaural mics.  I have had good result=
s with these however I have noticed throughout all of my source recordings =
that they are slightly right heavy.  (Whilst I have haven't had my ears tes=
ted I know I damaged them when I was younger) I believe that when I am reco=
rding I am tilting my head slightly to the right to compensate???=20

I am planning a trip next year to the Artic Circle in Canada and therefore =
want something that is easily portable and easy to set up (quickly).

So I am thinking to move away from in-ear microphones (especially for Natur=

for the two) or possibly a MKE 44-P stereo mic (546.00 Euros) (In Austria)

 is available on this subject.  Should I stick with a minidisc or look for =
a hard disc recorder?

Any help would be much appreciated I have plenty of time so will continue r=
esearching but if someone can point me in the right direction that would be=

All the best David
