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:
 
http://balisounds.com/citysnd.zip
 
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.

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.
