Audiomoth Recording

Recently I acquired a couple of Audiomoth, a low-cost, full-spectrum acoustic logger, and decided to try and make some recordings to try and ‘evaluate’ them as an alternative to other more expensive recorders.

I placed one above a swamp in a council-park near my residence, and configured it to make half-hour recordings. After downloading the data I was reasonably satisfied with the output but was grateful that wind and artificial noise was fairly minimal.

I’ve posted a short .mp3 audio-clip converted from the original .wav file to demonstrate the effectiveness of the recorder. Have a listen and see how many frog and bird-species that you can find present.


Short 1.5 minute clip


Unfortunately it isn’t feasible to display an image for the full 30 minute clip


I am hoping to use Audiomoth for scientific data-gathering and possibly ‘Sound-scapes’ so would welcome any comments or constructive-criticism.
