Audious is growing up.

This week saw the arrival of some new gear at Audious.

I've gotten my grubby little mitts on a brand new Fostex FR2-LE and a Rode NT4.

The Fostex FR2-LE, is a 2 track field recorder, which is not only used by a number of professional sound recordist and film studio's around the world. It is also used "out of this world", it is the chosen device for recording sound in outer space.

The Rode NT4, is stereo X/Y condenser microphone.

This combination is great for on-location recordings. I will be out and about over the coming months and years recording ambiances and sounds which I've previously been unable to collect. I have a growing list of places that I want to visit. This is great for film recordings and band recordings.

Expect another series of Podcasts to come soon after the current one finish's, with examples of the sounds that I have been out recording.

In the meantime, here a sample of the first recording that I made whilst playing around with this combination. Recorded in my backgarden in a suburban neighbourhood at around 5pm this evening, note rush hour traffic in the distance and nearby countryside birds.
