edit: before anyone suggests recording directly to Audacity, I don't have an external mic, and the iPod's built-in mic is a zillion times better than the laptop's mic. I don't even know exactly where on the unit the mic is, so I wouldn't be able to properly direct my vocals into it and the reverb and background noise would be a nightmare.

edit 2: poking around I find that this sort of transfer is theoretically easy using the basic iTunes sync function, "include voice memos" is part of the Music Sync options... except that my music sync hasn't been working properly for awhile, and "unknown error" is the only info I get when I try. I'm about to restore the iPod, something I should have done long ago, and hope that clears it up. I'm not stoked about waiting for the 1.5 GB file to do so, but we'll see...]]>

Subject: Recording Drums - by: a_relative_term http://www.rpmchallenge.com/index.php?option=com_kunena&func=view&catid=4&id=29713&Itemid=100013#29713 http://www.rpmchallenge.com/index.php?option=com_kunena&func=view&catid=4&id=29713&Itemid=100013#29713
I'm attempting to record some drums this year which is still a fairly new task for me and I'd love to be able to have discussions about what others are doing that might be working particularly well. And to be able to have sounds to refer to and ask questions about would be invaluable.

Thanks!]]>

Subject: 2017 New Gear Thread - by: winterstar http://www.rpmchallenge.com/index.php?option=com_kunena&func=view&catid=4&id=29423&Itemid=100013#29423 http://www.rpmchallenge.com/index.php?option=com_kunena&func=view&catid=4&id=29423&Itemid=100013#29423
I really only contribute badly-played guitar (well, and found sounds) to our albums, so I'm always tweaking my pedalboard. I've added a proper isolated power supply, a Fulltone OCD (v3), and soon an Earthquaker Devices Afterneath. I might also get a looper, but time will tell on that. I think I've spent enough this year.

Anyone else get any new fun toys or essential gear for February this year?]]>
