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.

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

  For Lorspeaker: (16/48 flac, 21.8mb, 3 minutes)
Just press repeat, if your DAP supports it :)
(With wind noise :frowning2: )

Nice one mate, I like the wind noise as well

Download over an hour of ceremonial (about a full CD) of Gamelan Music recorded at Tukadmungga Village on October 20th 2013 in North Bali. Included are 11 tracks with Lelambatan; music during prayers, sounds of the ocean, kids playing with the gamelan instruments, and music for Balinese dances; Tari Pendet, Tari Kebyar Duduk, Tari Cendrawasih and Tari Barong.
(mp3, 128/44.1 , 52.9mb)
