Field Recording Practice Sessions

A reminder about the Field Recording Practice Sessions for Wednesday, September 26.

If you already own some of the supplies on the list (enclosed-ear headphones for example, or a battery charger), then by all means use your own gear. And feel free to shop elsewhere, particularly online, where you can find really good deals and have stuff shipped overnight or 2-3 day.

Riverwest Film and Video only carries 1GB Hi-MD MiniDiscs. One advantage is that you can hold quite a bit of sound on the 1GB disc. The downside (in addition to higher cost) is that all of your data is located on one disc, and if something bad were to happen to that one disc, you could be in trouble. Standard MiniDiscs should be available at our campus Bookstore, Best Buy, Circuit City, and Fry’s Electronics, and are definitely available online: http://tinyurl.com/2dyqaa.

Whichever version of MiniDisc you end up purchasing, we will adjust accordingly.

Here is the link to the GoogleMap for Riverwest Film and Video (zoom out to see the campus): http://tinyurl.com/36avvt.

I’m almost finished with the GoogleMaps Tutorial. I will post a link on the syllabus this afternoon or evening. Look for it here: http://www.glennbach.com/film_116/07116_googlemaps.html.

Take some time to review the soldering guide: http://tinyurl.com/2be3p7.
