How do you guys do audio? Just wondering.

I got a shotgun mic with a windscreen that just just attaches to my phone via the lightning port, and since its a Røde mic, I record to their recording app, as it is in WAV, not mp3 like apples Voice Recorder. Unfortunately, the lightning connector broke on mine, so I am waiting on a replacement. If I feel like I need to, I have a DAW and some noise reduction devices to bring out the sound.

I have a mic that I use on my camera. Will that work for eBird?

The main way I get audio recordings is to just take a video with my camera then use a movie editing program (we have used Cyberlink PowerDirector, VLC Media Player, and Windows Movie Maker) to save it as an audio file.  Then I use Audacity to edit the recordings.  I also have an audio recorder (Zoom H2), but I don't carry that around everywhere.

Alright. Thanks!

As long as you can get the audio to meet eBird's requirements! You'd probably have to extract the audio from the video that you take, unless your camera can do just audio?

Audio

  • WAV (preferred), MP3, or M4A
  • Maximum file size: 250 MB
  • At least 44.1 kHz, at least 16 bits
