    Digital voice recorders (with "hold-to-record")

    Hi guys! Maybe you can help me out. I'm looking for a voice recorder that offers a "hold-to-record" option, that is, it only records while I'm holding the record button. (No, I don't want to use my phone.) It has to be digital and can preferably work as an audio interface to my PC. I checked...

    getting rid of noise

    Hi, I feel like I don't quite get noise in analog-to-digital 1) why can't we record music at for example 17 bits, the quantized noise is last bit, right? And then we cut the last bit so no quantized noise??? 2) why can't we oversample > noise shape > downsample to get rid of noise The noise is...

    What's the deal with microphones?

    I want to record some voice-over stuff, and I have an inexpensive condenser mic. I was not really happy with the sound I was getting, so I started doing some EQ and looking at other microphones that people rave about...and I just don't understand what they're talking about. Can someone address...

    Help wanted recording the outputs of the DAC and Headphone Amplifier

    I would like to digitally record the analog output of DACs and headphone amplifiers as high-resolution as possible. Unfortunately, I have little to no knowledge of it. What do I need as hardware? I have a Macbook and a ZOOM TAC-2R Thunderbolt Audio Converter. Is that enough or do I need a...

    DMS said that harmonic distortion makes the sound pleasing

    From 4:25 to 5:00 DMS said: "In the recording end things like harmonic distortion is sought after. Some very expensive and well rounded microphones add significant harmonic distortion, then are plugged in through tube amps to power microphones - tube compressors and processed through different...

    Very early (pre-phonograph) recordings

    I ended up down a bit of an internet rabbit-hole, reading about early recording techniques. That led me to the phonoautograph, invented by Édouard-Léon Scott de Martinville, which is generally recognised as the first technology capable of recording sounds directly from the air. I love this...

    Microphone stand - worth getting an "anti-vibration" stand?

    Asking on behalf of someone who wants to record woodwind instruments (bassoon and sax). I believe he is going to for a Behringer XM8500 mic and given the quality of the mic, it's not clear that it's worth spending more on an anti-vibration stand. My guess is vibration would be evident in low...

    Open vs. closed vs. studio monitors during recording or editing

    This is for voiceover. I was given advice that while recording it's just as well not to use any headphones whilst recording. True? And for editing/processing/mastering studio monitors are best but if without those, use open-back headphones instead. And that semi-open won't do. Do you all agree?
