classes and kirttans. Having gratefully just received over 27
hours of recordings from the 21st World Tour, on hearing the distortion
we feel the need to stress: please don't
use an 'iPod' to record classes or kirttan.
If you have no other option, then at least ensure the recording
level is very low (it can be amplified later on a computer), as
it clips loud sounds in a particularly ugly way.
Although these hi-tech, expensive iPod machines are good at playing
audio, they make no claim to be good at recording. Indeed they are
very poor at recording (for the technical minded: they record at
a sample rate of only 8 kHz) apparently as a concession
to the music industry. A cheap cassette recorder works better. For
recording tips, please see our Tips for
Ekadasi. Fast from grains.
