People moving, mic quality
Hi, thanks for your response.
I have to record people (even worse, mostly children) while they're moving around and wearing the recorder. I have tried using the iRiver as it is and it really is fairly decent when you're listening back to it.
However, I need to be able to do acoustic analysis on the recordings. For that, the built-in microphone just isn't good enough, plus the compression leads to a loss of signal for acoustic analysis purposes.
I did read somewhere about working with a pre-amp and external mic plugged into the line-in jack of the iRiver, but I was trying to avoid this cause I'm really not all that great with technology and the fewer pieces the better...
But it's starting to look like that's what I'm going to have to do ;-(
