Hello readers,

I'm David, a Dutch-speaking 30 year old male from Belgium (Europe), and int=
o experimental music. Excuse me for my poor English.  I am probably not the=
 first one who has joined this list in order to learn more about field reco=
rding. I have no experience or knowledge on the field recording whatsoever.=

Is there anyone who can help me with finding an answer/solution for the fol=
lowing questions/problems:

1=B0 I want to record sounds in nature. Which (cheap but good) portable dev=
ices should I use? What about a Sony MZ-RH1 minidisc recorder and a Sony EC=
M-MS907 stereo microphone?
2=B0 How do I transfer these recorded sounds to a computer of laptop? What =
should I keep in mind when buying a computer? Which software do I need?
3=B0 Is Adobe Audition a good program for editing (or transforming) my soun=
ds? Which other audio editing programs do you recommend?
4=B0 Are they any good websites or books for dummies about field recording?
5=B0 Are there any people from Flanders or The Netherlands on this list? I =
would like to get in touch with you, in order to exchange information in Du=

Feel free to contact me off-list.

Thanks everybody!
