Morbid curiosity kept me reading this thread.

Our washing machine is mid-70's (the kind worth repairing until it falls apart utterly rather than replace with a planned obsolescence model - our repair guy has 2 sets of them in his basement - we couldn't have found a more perfect repair guy...) - that lovely harvest yellow or whatever it was called color. It has a fantastic sound - I've recorded it on my minidisc, but never used it anywhere. Maybe I will now... Wink

Neatest sound on the minidisc - somewhat related to the washing machine because I was only two feet away from it at the time is when at about 2 am one morning I heard this bizarre and loud humming coming from somewhere. Got up ... wandered around ... checked the basement - couldn't find it. got my wife up - she couldn't find it either. we finally isolated it to being loudest right at the bottom of the stairs to our basement - which has really nothing there. The sound was huge. I went outside and walked around the house - finally spotting a water main break (a small geyser coming up in the middle of the road) - and went back inside and realized a water pipe coming right off the main going right over head as you go into the basement was the culprit. I popped the minidisc on - placed the binaurals right up next to the pipe - and we went back to bed. Absolutely weird just how loud this was - resonating throughout our house - and didn't sound like water in any way.

Hmmmm. Strange noises. I come from a rural area, and the first time I heard a sheep burp it just blew me away.

Good, isn't it? Even better is the sound of the male deer during the mating season. Their bellows make you jump, even whein they're half a mile away. And the heron; Sounds like a mix of a baby screaming and a cat being tortured.

Because you know your mixer isn't far away? Wink

Fixated. Fixated.

You shouldn't be giving a young man such as myself ideas above my station. Be that as it may, I shall have to look into this, preferably from a safe distance - indoors, maybe? This IS, after all, the COUNTRYSIDE.

Shocked

What was special about the Hoovermatic (TM) Twin-Tub, was the final spin down seemed to take forever. An almost continuos downward pitch, much like a 'Shepherd tone'. Did someone mention sheep?

By Jove, Mr Ian, I think you have just unravelled a new conspiracy. Someone somewhere isn't telling us something. We must be told!

Back to topic, sort of. I still rue the day my Nissan Urvan's engine broke down. Not the fact that I had to consign the trusty old warhorse to the scrapyard ( it was starting to cost me horrible sums of money to maintain, so no real loss there), rather the fact that I didn't have my minidisc ready to record the last twenty seconds of its life. If I had, I could have sold it to some foley artist for a goodly sum. What a sound, that's all I can say. Shocked

The moral is, of course: Be prepared! Cool

That brings up the question about the perfect portable recording rig? So.. minidisc? Is that good enough? DAT is obviously destined for the same fate as the RVPD (rotating vinyl platter decoder). So.. will some of those new solid state recorders do?
