Thread Name: Field Recording... Yourself
Subject: RE: Field Recording... Yourself
I' m still using tape, at least for the time being.

But I've been taping miscellaneous stuff for some time. Like our monthly sea music sessions and other gatherings. Definitely if one of our circle is on the radio or something.

Part of it is just my over-organized archiving fanatic Kraut brain of mine. And it helps if I want to learn a song someone's sung and I've enjoyed.

But mostly it's so I can hear what I sound like -- if I need to change my phrasing , rhythm, how my harmony is working on one of Tom's songs, etcet etcet.

It really helps -- and it's better than asking someone how I sound. Gives me the specifics to tweak my performance.

And if I ever find time to set up my iMic I can transfer the tapes easily to CD or MP3 format.

Not this week!
