Re: Microphones for Zoom
Hi Hamit and list.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Please dont underestimate the Binaural sound of street recording.
I've already purchased 3 sets of BSM 9 Binaural microphones from America and as far as I'm concerned the are the bestBinaural microphones on the market today.
I'm hoping to purchase a 4th pair but this time, I'm hoping to also purchase an XLR adaptore that will convert my mini jack to an XLR along with a small power pack to plug directly into my Zoom F8n!
So please don't underestimate these wonderful microphones.
Here is a very good example of what I'm talking about.
Earlier today I wrote a mest to Georgena as follows:
Hi again Georgina.
You would not probabally believe this Georgena, unless you put your trust in me totally.
About 15 years ago, when I still held some residual vision, I made a podcast called Andy's farm.
This was posted to Blind Cool Tec and the feedback I got from all over America was absolutely fantastic and very encouraging.
Sadly BCT no longer exscists and I'd love this group to try and do something the same, with podcasts along with sight seeing tours etc. Unfortunately this is yet only another dream!
I was a recently retired visual impairment manager and Pauline was a mental health nurse.
It's a lovely podcast when my wife and i were in our middle 40's.
Pauline and I live in a farm, that is, what is now communly know here in Scotland as a Small Holding.
I had very recently retired as a visual impairment manager with my local authority and Pauline was a mental health nurse.
Georgina. This place called Meikle Aiden farm was paid outright and Pauline and I lived a very special dream.
We have loads of land with set aside just for the wiled burds, rabits and hedhogs and it was just glorious and filled with love and happyness and we had loads of pets and friends from the wildside community, like Guess, Chickens, ducks, Dogs and Cats. It was beutiful.
Pauline was hoping to wright a book about our love and struggle we shared hoping that some people may be interested in her book.
Because of her commitments that still eccist , she sadellly did not get around to starting this.
So I made a podcast called Andy's Farm and I still listen to it today and feel very sad for all our dogs and cats that have past on since.
The remarkable thing about this Georgina. is that my podcaste was recorded using a basic Olympus DM 50 along with a pair of Bsm Binauaral microphones series 9 from America.
The quality of the sound in the podcaste i think is remarkable, giving the fact that all of my recording equitment cost little more than £100.
It makes me wonder why have I now have a Zoom F8n and why I'm ready to spend hundreds of pounds on specialised microphones.
So I'm suggesting start by going cheep as I did, learn about sound recording and move up only when You'r sure there is an improvement there for you.
Regarding andy's farm, you can download my old podcaste from the following site:
Please, please consider this podcast and let me know if you think a £100 total bill for the equipment was worthwhile .
Very best wishes.

Ah well then as far as binaural goes Larry from APH did it with in ear mics. So these you put in your ear like earpods. They use your ear canal to help shape the sound. He went to work at APH with them and an IRiver recorder. I like the effect, but I don't like how binaural mics as they are little mini me things that go in your ear have an ear bud quality to them. They don't sound as good as an actual mic you hold in your hand.
