We did really well today by getting our microphones built in only an hour-and-a-half. That frees up our schedule quite a bit, which means that Thursday will be dedicated entirely to your Drift walks. Tomorrow, then, features an overview of Drift 1, along with demos of SonicStage, Audacity, PantherFile, and Blogger. We have a lot to cover, but bring your kits just in case we have some time to review your recordings.
Tonight, review the manual for the Minidisc recorder:
Review the Field Audio section of the Tutorials page:
If you are working on a laptop or a computer at home, download and install SonicStage 3.4:
If you are using Vista, you must use version 4.3:
Download and install Audacity, including the LAME MP3 encoder:
If you have time, read Debord, Guy. "Theory of the Dérive," and Ferrington, Gary. "On A Clear Day I Can Hear Forever."
And, finally, remember to register for the Technical Forum by tomorrow at 1 PM, and post your survey by Thursday at 1 PM.
See you all tomorrow.
