A recording of (mainly) a Northern Whipbirds. Recorded near lake Eacham in the rainforest. The fluttering of wings you can hear is from a Riflebird (Ptiloris magnificus). It was lightly raining at the time and a stream is audible. Recording chain: AT3032 microphone pair - Sound Devices MixPre - Edirol R09HR

    This may be my very favourite Freesound sound - perfect. It calls back childhood memories in a tumult
    Thank you very much for providing this sound.
    I have used it as part of a collage in a piece called "The Sense of Being Stared At" which is listenable and downloadable on SoundCloud here: https://soundcloud.com/ivodne-galatea/the-sense-of-being-stared-at

    Thanks for this. I am very fussy about recorder/preamp hiss (that's why I got a MixPre), I am running line-in on the R09HR between 30-40 (that = 10-15 on the R09 classic). I have never had any issues with noise from the Edirols (R09 and R09HR) with the MixPre out the front. BTW: Check the gain on the MixPre, that's about the maximum I ever need to use. So I am not lacking gain.


    Thanks for the suggestions tho.

    ???? But yo DO have this choice, and Y-cable!:

    The main advantage of the XLR output over the tapeout is that it allows turning down gain on the noisy Edirol to 10 - meaning no gain added there - and use the low-noise signal of the preamp instead. Ever since I got the FP24 I've been doing this
