Hi Marc,

Thanks for posting these samples!     I'm certainly not an expert...  =

but it could be helpful to make your SoundCloud recordings downloadable.
There is nothing quite like being able to download the recording and
view it directly.

We all have to deal with low-frequency traffic din, as you have in some
of these recordings.   It can be filtered out (or reduced) quite
effectively with various plugins.    I use DDMF IIEQpro but there are
many others that can do a great job.

I'm a relative newcomer to nature recording, so I defer to the experts
here who may have better suggestions.

AT4022's & a Fostex FR2-LE, in this DIY parallel boundary array\

to the north west of Sydney.

& other unwanted background noises like cars etc. It looks like I am
going to have to find some much quieter places than the one I was at!

Mic Trim levels at about 80% and the Main Recording Level at 100% (which
still was not peaking with even the loudest bird sounds) . After
searching the forum for more info on this it seems that setting the
levels a little lower might be a better option. Any comments on this
from those who are using this equipment?

craftsmanship, and as I am not much of a handyman or designer (or sound
