Hi everyone, I'd like to say thanks for approving my membership to the
group, and I'd like to share a recording I made tonight.\

Signal chain as follows:
Superlux S502->Tascam DR-680 (gain switch high, trim zero)->Reaper
(100hz high-pass, normalize, remove a couple of unwanted sections)->Lame
MP3 encoder set for max bitrate/quality.

At about the 48-minute mark, you'll hear a train passing in the
distance. The tracks pass about a quarter mile from my house, and the
nearest crossings are about a mile away in either direction. The tracks
are in the null of the mic, and the house is between the mic and the
tracks. I think I'll do another recording from the other side of the
house, facing in the general direction of the tracks. Would that be
welcome here, or is the group more strictly nature-focused?

I'm very happy with how it turned out. I've been working in AV and
production for most of my life, and have never been satisfied with the
nature recordings I could achieve with my own recording equipment. This
is my first outing with the DR-680, and I can finally say that I'm happy
with how it sounds!
