Hope all goes well with the field trials ... don't worry about the strange looks from guests (wondering why you might be listening to an MP3 player in Disneyland) you soon get used to it  Wink

I guess that means using personal music players is not as common at DLRP as they are at DLR.  It's a common way to pass the time while waiting in line or just walking around.

OR they are all doing binaural recordings of the queue music  Grin
Don't worry, with the shirts I wear, the earphones will be the last thing they'll look at  ;)Looking forward to trying them out. Even my wife was impressed by the recording I made this morning (she isn't impressed by these boys toys normally).

Are your shirts similar to Mr. Lasseter's? Grin

He talks about his shirt collection starting at 2:40.
Have fun with your new toy and have a good time at the Parc!

http://www.soundprofessionals.com/cgi-bin/gold/category/110/mics you have two models master series and low noise one.  purchase the one you can afford.  Now do you have a recording device? you will need a bass roll off so the mics don't distort on loud or low noise. I have the low noise version.

The ones I have bought are as basic as they come, I think - around $30.
The tests I have made so far using my ZoomH2 seem far better than I had hoped for.
I'm at the park next week so fingers crossed.

I suppose they are not top rated ones and won't give results like ones selling for much more but they'll do me.
Listening with headphones I did feel I was back on the ride (and looked around a few times as well)  Cheesy
No way I could have afforded an expensive pair anyway.

Some recorders mic sockets come with power - the Zoom H2 will be Ok  Wink

The Zoom H2 would be perfect for making binaural recordings (two mics pointing left and right for stereo sound). If you spend an extra $10 at Radio Shack, you can make an induction recording of there's an accessible speaker. Grin Can't go wrong with the H2!

Yes, the zoomH2 works well for directional stereo (but not true binaural without the mics - you need a head in the way for true binaural recordings otherwise it's just good stereo)  Grin
The mics I bought are powered by the Zoom and pick things up well enough for me.
The Zoom also works well with the Radio Shack induction mic but I use a mono-stereo adapter (I never do trust that the mono plug will span both points in the socket and do joint stereo) with it. I know a mono jack should be fine and will record on both channels but I had one once that didn't.
I'm not sitting for another hour to re-record or fiddling about copying channels when I get home.
I do find that the Zoom (using the two front mics) is quite a good directional mic as well if you can get a good line on a speaker that's not too far away.
Can't post the ones that came out best (commercial stuff) but here's Buzz Lightyear.
Just popped the mics in and switched on and let it run (set the level, of course).
I did try not to turn my head during the ride! The mics may have dropped out a couple of times, not sure (must listen again).

The Zoom (on high gain) also picked up a passable area loop of Toad Hall from a speaker I had to bend down and put my ear to in an effort to hear if it was working (it's the only speaker with full access and no CMs and also well out of sight from most people - it's down the side of the -unused this year - festival stage next door to the restaurant.
Unfortunately, can't post - commercial tracks.
It's a good little recorder.
