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

    Yes tape out (line level) from the MixPre. As I am using it with an R09HR (and previously R09) I have no choice. The tape out is -56 dB while the XLRs are -66 dB (10 dB difference). That said, I have never run more than 50-60% gain on the MixPre while feeding an Edirol R09/HR model. More gain that I can use.

    so (from the photograph) you were feeding the recorder with the *tape out* of the preamp? With my Shure FP24 I rarely use the tapeout, as it gives much less signal than the XLR lineouts - guess you know this. Or maybe source level was not a limiting factor? The new R09HR is cool, too!

    Fantastic - high quality recording, weird sounds, and great atmosphere.

    Yes it's being used as a baffle, since they are omnidirectional mics. It was an improvised setup, but it works :)

    Pretty interesting recording.
    Is the white box used as a separator like a human head?
    Recorded sound is very nice.
