Well done to you and Olympus, then, Caroline. The ambience of Oxford and people chatting came over so well. Looking forward to more from you!

Vince.

Hope,

I was using my newly-acquired Olympus WS-320M with the internal stereo
microphones. It was the first time I had recorded anything of that nature
with the Olympus, and I was unsure how it would work out, but I was quite
pleased with the results. It was helpful that Debbie had such a nice loud
voice and we were able to keep fairly close to her. It also seemed to pick
up the surrounding sounds and atmosphere quite well.


However, after listening to the Lichfield Cathedral podcast recorded by Paul
Hopkins, I have ordered one of the same microphones as Paul used, as I was
astounded by the wonderful results he achieved, especially when the choir
and orchestra were practising. So hopefully, if I find something
interesting to record in the future, the quality will be even better.


By the way, if you haven't listened to Paul's recording from Lichfield, I
would highly recommend it.  The acoustics in the cathedral are marvellous,
and it must be a wonderful experience to attend a concert there.

Caroline.

Caroline,
I am envious. <smile>
By the way, your walk through Oxford podcast was very informative. Now, for
the perverbial question, what were you using in terms of a microphone and
recorder?
Hope

Jake,

Did you actually live in the town of Hershey at some time? Here in the
UK,
there is a city called York which used to have two chocolate factories,
Terry's, where chocolate oranges were made, and Rowntree's, which produced
lots of different chocolates, including Kit-Kat and Quality Street. If
you
visited York at the right time of day and the wind was blowing in a
favourable direction, you could smell chocolate in the air! I'm not sure
if
that was a good idea, as it was a lovely thought you were getting
something
chocolate for free, but made you feel hungry at the same time.


Cadbury World in Birmingham, which I visited a couple of years ago, also
had
the same gorgeous chocolate smell in the air. I wonder whether the people
who work at these places ever get tired of the smell? Perhaps they just
get
so used to it that they don't notice it any more!


Caroline.

Wait a minute Pam! Don't I get some of that Hershey's chocolate too, being
a
former Hersheyite myself?

It looks like people are coming back in and unpacking. Good deal. Some of us have been here for a while, and some never left. For all of you who just got back today, welcome back. We took the liberty of leaving chocolates under your pillows. Dark chocolate even. I kept the Hershies for myself and a few others who like them. The bar is all stocked with scotch and ready to go too. It will be so much fun to have everybody back in the same place.

Pam
