It's me again. Digital recording is as good as any audio recording ever =

needs to be. The question is how good does it need to be for outdoor

You can check this yourself in a place with a quiet and constant background=

sound. Record it at the same level setting but changing one parameter at a=

time, back and forward, such as bit depth or sample rate. If you can hear a=

clear difference, use the higher quality setting, if not, save your file
space. Practice wins over theory every time.
