It was time to mow the lawn, and it was a beautiful day for mowing. 80 degrees and sunny. Not much breeze at all.

For the production: I took the Zoom H1 out and set it by the porch about 2 feet up off the ground. Recorded at 96k 24bit. The Low Cut and AGC were disabled. Once recorded, I finished it off with a small amount of Airwindows "Air" with the 22k tap opened all the way up.

For the mower: I used a 21 inch 140 cc "550ex" Series Briggs & Stratton Gas Walk Behind Push Mower. When I finished mowing my yard, I approached the recorder up to about 2 feet, then I cut the engine. I start it again and let it idle in close proximity for about 8 seconds, still at a distance of about 2 feet, then cut the engine one last time. I'm sure this could potentially come in handy for those outdoor scenes where you could use some distant neighborhood activity or a close-up start/stop. Enjoy!
