Issues related to computerized editing of sounds, copyrights, Internet applications and commercial uses of files are encouraged.
It is sometimes necessary to limit discussions that, although they may be pertinent or desirable to some, can become contentious. In the interest of the list's survival as a forum for discussion of recording natural sound, It is recognized that the "playback" thread (playing recorded sounds back to animals) has the potential for creating an atmosphere on the list that is not conducive to civil discussion. therefore the discussion on playback is not allowed in this group.
Sound files may not be attached to postings, nor will any other attachements be allowed. Members are encouraged to discuss unknown or unidentified sounds they have recorded and to post sound files and to post sounds to the group so that other members can hear them. The moderator has supplied a web site, which can be found on the "Links" page, to which members may post sounds larger than 200K for the benefit of the group.
