How to Record Readings
Since moving to Denver last week, I had a chance to use my Olympus Digital Voice Recorder with my Sony digital recording microphone. This combination of relatively cheap equipment (~$200 total) creates good quality recordings in .wav format which can easily be converted to MP3’s using Switch, a free audio format converter. Once a file is converted to MP3, it can be edited and exported using Audacity with the LAME MP3 encoder. This combination of hardware and software works well for me in terms of portability, price, and ease of use. Anyone interested in making an online audio archive of readings could record them using this stuff and then host it on WordPress. There might be better hardware, software, and web hosting options out there but I figured I would give some specific examples.
