A question from a newbie for those who have tackled this aspect of document=
ing our vanishing wild sounds.

If you had the following equipment:

Fostex Field Recorder (FR2LE)
Microphones: MKH70 boom, 2 x AT3032 omnis, 50' +/- cables
Computer w/ Microsoft Soundbooth & Audacity (more familiar w/ SB tho)

How would you go about capturing a baseline?

I've got access to internet (periodically) and am currently remote so any r=
ecommendations on places to educate myself -- both now and once I'm back in=
 the connected world -- would be helpful.

Bernie -- your workshop w/ Martyn sounds great, probably what I should chec=
k into once I'm back this fall.

Tho I've been recording off/on (when I'm not taking photos -- and sometimes=
 then too) for ~5 years, I've still got a lot to learn...

So any pointers, tips, recommendations, cautions, etc. welcome! Thanks!
