I'm not sure if this is a done correctly example, but here goes:-
Mic System: Pseudo binaural 2 x Audio Technica AT3032's mounted inside sili=
cone Pinna (ears) with post equalization.
AT3032 -> Mic In - RME QuadMic - Line Out ->
to either Sony D50 Line input or Korg MR2 Line input.
Sony D50 recording at 48 Khz / 24 Bit.
Korg MR2 DSD @ 2.8Mhz.
Saved as 16 bit Flac @ 48 Khz.
whats flac? - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Free_Lossless_Audio_Codec
Recording is environmental noise (distant motorway traffic) + Wind and Rain=
Not a side by side due to the need to swap recorders.
Question is: which 2 minute section is from the Sony D50 or Korg MR2?
