I love listening to sound of nature or white noise while working. I have tried to record some before. They were of average quality. Mostly because they were recorded on a smart phone. Recently I acquired a Zoom H1n. I have been trying to record on it. I am yet to get a hang of it1.
I am also trying to understand and build a DIY setup for binaural recording. I don’t think it should be that difficult given how cheap microphones are and I am not expecting to produce the *bestest* audio.
Binaural recording is a method of recording sound that uses two microphones, arranged with the intent to create a 3-D stereo sound sensation for the listener of actually being in the room with the performers or instruments. This effect is often created using a technique known as “dummy head recording”, wherein a mannequin head is outfitted with a microphone in each ear. Binaural recording is intended for replay using headphones and will not translate properly over stereo speakers.
