I'm new to this list and just want to say how helpful the flood of comments=
 have been
regarding my question about recording thunder without distortion.  As reque=
sted, I'll post a
couple of examples of the thunder I recently recorded on a 722 with a Shure=
 VP88.  This first
one was a very loud crack nearly overhead that, to me, sounds pretty damn g=
ood (wait for the
big crack about a third of the way in):

This second example of thunder that was much further away sounds distorted =
to me, but
after the list comments and a more critical listen, I'm wonder if the probl=
em might be as
simple as some kind of mechanical vibration through the tripod I was using =
or some screw
that wasn't quite tight enough.  Although I had the mic in a shock mount, I=
 can imagine that
those low frequency rumbles could get almost anything vibrating.

And thanks again,
