Hi. A couple of weeks ago I had the chance to sound-walk with a friend
that has the Sony PCM-D50. It is definitely a great machine for that
kind of recorder, the sound is pretty clear and definite.
Unfortunately I've got different needs for my recordings and for the
same price I would buy an Edirol R44 (and save some money) so I can
have 4 XLR input tracks that the sony doesn't have. I also do not
prefer that stereo mic configuration so much. But if you need a pocket
recorder and you can afford it, is the actual best product, in my
point of view.
Nice blog guys and amazing places. I was unable to playback any of
your sound on Firefox, I don't know why; the only one that opened up
is the "Noisy owls in the backwoods" that is still there buffering. I
tried with Safari and finally I enjoyed some of your pretty nice
In the "crescent city jetty sounds" I can hear some limiting. Is it on
the original recording?
