My first (or maybe second) Monday-morning-pre-deadline submission.

Idea by Emily.

Dog = Scout

All sounds derived from bone chewing. Recorded on Tascam DR07mkII (the best cheap field recorder that no longer is made).

Thanks! It's been ages since I did some sound design like that from a real-world sound.

I can't even wrap my head around all that being bone samples, that's crazy. I also have a DR07mkII recorder! But unfortunately, I've used it for so long that now I seem to have a problem with getting weird electrical interference or something with it. Sometimes when I go to listen to the audio I recorded the sound in one ear drops out and is replaced with white noise. No idea how to fix it sad

If you use Ableton Live I can send you the session if you want to dig around? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Interesting about the electrical interfearance. Ballin' hear, but have you changed the SD card? I wonder if the data is not writing cleanly and you're getting some weird error correction or something? That sounds poopy though.

I love the DR07 so much. I had a Zoom H4n and much preferred the 07. Have a H6 for more "serious" stuff, but still, the DR07 can record at 96kHz and the mics are sensitive up to nyquist at that SR, so you can record ultrasonic with the DR07 which so few recorders can do, let alone in that price range. I did some cool stuff recording ultrasonic stuff for spectral transposition down into audible range.

wow, great job with this.

also, thank you for your recorder information!  I have a measly zoom H1, and would like to STEP UP MY GAME.  But I wonder, is there anything that is as fast at recording and playing back as a handheld cassette recorder?  That's the special thing I'm looking for - handheld recorder, super fast record to play back, and also a pitch wheel (because I'm dumb and like to make funny voices and then play it back at high speed smile )

Whoa!

Transducers are super fun! Same with piezos and cheap electrets (piezos being the basis for hydrophones).

I'm afraid I don't have much advice with the recorders - I'm not sure I've ever even used the playback function on any of the ones I've had or had access to. The Tascam is pretty immediate, but I dunno if they still design their recorders in that way. The pitch wheel thing is pretty rare, I'm not sure why. Maybe it requires quite a bit more processing to do the pitch shifting than they usually bother building in?

Sorry, not much help.
