About

I recently started out with field recording to improve the sound of my video's. but got sidetracked into nature sound recording in it's own right. My gear is fairly humble with most of the mics being home made.
Recorder Olympus LS-5
Mic's EM172's in a stereo dish or sass configuration
Field mixer Sound Devices Mix-pre with home made P48 to 5V impedance matched interface
Post is done with Audacity.
Comments welcome

    Thank's for all you work on Sass stuff. I was inpired to build a Sass with Em-172's and the stereo image is fantastic compared to other more usual methods.
    I have compared your files with the Olympus to mine and mine (ls-5) have much more noise that is audible and visble on a sonogram. Olympus tell me there is no difference in the respective units so I am lost as to why this may be.
    What gain settings were used in the above file? I geusss there was no post noise reduction done.

    Regards Steve
