How does an Indonesian City Sounds?

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 

Hi,

 

Got a Tascam DR-05 and find it an intriguing thing. I am recording stuff around my house, and will soon be recording some real music with it...

 

To give an idea how the DR-05 "works" download this sample:

Its a 59.5 mb 24/96 flac, a recording in the evening on the edge of a rice field near a city in Bali, Indonesia.

 

You hear the rumbling of the city, plenty of animals, a mosque in the distance and some more.

 

With a headphone please :)

Thanks ! Really neat sounding. I could sit and listen to this track for a while , kick back and close my eyes to it.

 What is that louder sound periodically, a bird? insect? frog?

Wow there's a LOT of things picked up in this recording.

 

Those are really interesting little recorders. I'm going to look into one of these . Thanks again.

There are no birds afaik in the recording...

Mostly frogs and other reptiles, crickets and other insects.

That's one decent and immaculate recording mate, gave me an uncanny feeling of tranquility when listening to it

Thanks 62ohm..

 

I find it fascinating to only record the audible spectrum of our senses, and also to "hear around" what could be interesting...

 

The other day I recorded the sound of an overflying flock of hundreds of birds. Magic.

feel free to post up other audio also !

 

I have some odd stuff like this saved somewhere from a source i forgot about. I think this person has a website where they post city and travel environmental sounds exactly like you did. Love that. Anyhow there were sounds of Okinanwan vending machines that sort of thing I find fun.

One hour of 24/96 ocean should be around 1500mb, flac.

 

I did a bit of ocean the other day (5 minutes from my house), but I still need to get dead cat, windy....

 

The quiet american is a nice site, thanks nick.

 

I did record a (simple) gamelan orchestra just about 2hrs ago, almost 4 minutes, 24/96 flac 86.4mb
