Travails with my camera

Recording Audio

I’ve started to try and understand how to record audio properly when using my DSLR.

I decided to buy a Tascam DR-40 (I couldn’t afford a Zoom H4n) as it had two internal microphones and 2 XLR inputs with the ability to record Mono, Stereo, 4 Channel, Dual (Recording 2 inputs at 2 different levels) and overdub.

I decided to make a background (or Atmos) track when coming home on the tube. Here’s an excerpt, normalised in Audacity.
