I am an assitant professor of English at Valladolid University. I am
doing research into phraseology in the field of LSP. Could someone
facilitate me some bibliographical references in this field? Thank
you.

Message 3: DAT recordings

Subject: DAT recordings

I recently began making field recordings in DAT format using a Tascam
DA-P1 portable recorder. Just last week a colleague of mine who also
does linguistic field work told that he had decided against making
digital recordings because, he claimed, they distort speakers' voices.
Although I hadn't noticed this before, his comment prompted me to
compare analog and digital recordings I'd made of the same speaker. I
was surprised and somewhat disconcerted to find that there was,
indeed, a pretty noticeable difference between the two. I'm not sure
just how to describe the difference, but in a general way I'd say the
speaker's voice sounded less natural on the DAT recording, and
somewhat lower than I recall it to have been.

I'd be interested in knowing if anyone else who has used DAT recordings has
noticed this problem. Please reply directly to me, and I'll post a summary
if there's sufficient response.
