Your New Career As Audio Tour Guide
Monday, 28 January 2008
ipod with tunetalk With all the handheld, digital gizmos at your disposal, there’s one very cool thing that you can do on your next trip – create your own “audio tour” of your travels. It’s easy to do, and involves equipment that you already have or can easily acquire.

If you have an iPod, you can turn it into a digital recorder with Belkin’s TuneTalk Stereo, a $70 device that plugs into the bottom of an iPod and hooks it up with a small microphone. There are also adapters available to connect your standard digital voice recorder to an iPod. There are several other tools for working with iPods, along with inexpensive digital voice recorders. Heck, many phones and digital cameras can record audio, although the length of time they can record is limited.

Now … record your trip. The TuneTalk lets you check you sound levels, and it saves your files by date and time. Just hit record, and talk about what you see – and include background sounds, music, and other people in your audio journal as you go.

When you get home, you can use the iTunes software on your computer to save the individual files, or you can edit the audio with a program like Audacity (a freeware sound editing program similar to Adobe Audition, available at audacity.sourceforge.net). Save the files to iTunes, post them on the Web – or share them with friends who can listen along on their own iPods.
