Re: [evonline2002_webheads] Efficient digital recording: your advice?
- Hi, Renata!
Nice to hear from you!
The first idea that came to mind is Audacity. Will you be using computers
for the interviews?
To show you what I mean by my question, take a look at two end-of-year voice
chats that my 6th graders carried on with Aiden and Agata. The sound is
fabulous and it's as easy as ABC to record!
You can also take a look at a very simple Audacity tutorial I prepared.
It's time and effort efficient, but I have no experience with large volumes.
I guess that Christine Bauer-Ramazani can help you on that and much more.She
has a lot of experience with Audacity.
Hope this may help. Good luck

- Hi Renata,
My students use their MP3s when recording their speeches. MP3 file is downloadable and could also be copied on CDs. You could edit the digital version using adobe audition or audacity.
I hope this helps.

Would any of you have experience with a similar process and share with me/us their experiences?
What equipment have you used/can be used?
Can this procedure be applied to large "volumes" efficiently?
Thanks a bunch

- Hi Renata,
I'd suggest one of any number of MP3 players (or an iPod if you've got one,
or a similar device) with built-in microphones and recording facility. They
allow you to store recordings onto whatever storage device it uses (some use
memory sticks, some Flash cards, some Secure Digital cards), in MP3 format,
which is useful both for burning onto CD, transferring onto the student's
MP3 player or for putting on your website for the students to download
whenever they like. Once you've got all your recordings on the MP3 player
you can connect it to a PC and transfer all the recordings onto that, then
clear the storage device again if you like.
Hope that helps!
