    Was at the thrift store today and bought 2 of these cheesy nature sound alarm clock devices. They were only 99 cents each. Cool thing is, they have a headphone out (and a DC power in, but that doesn't matter so much to me). I have already messed around taking the output (one of like 4 built in recordings) and run it through the mixer/FX, played with the EQ, etc. Next is pedals and other FX, maybe record some stuff to tape and then run it back into the computer.

    Does anyone have any other ideas to try out? I'm curious. Maybe I could run them into stereo inputs and blend them and stuff? Have the different samples mix and move about?

    LMK guys!

    Maybe get yourself some contact mics, and have a blast with the freezer

      Ahhh. Like to warp the output over time?

        What happens to the audio output when the batteries get low? Could get some interesting changes in the audio quality.

          Interesting... That hadn't crossed my mind yet. Wonder if I could sample the "drained" sounds and make a few softsynths.

            See this is creative thinking, which I like. And it need not take a lot of money or expensive equipment to accomplish, either.

            I like my Roland SP-404SX because it has a number of different input options in it, and I can input three different sources at once, then I can sample it for as long as I want, or I can tweak it in real time with different effects, such as 'voice changer', which is really a real-time pitch-shifter, 'dj mix', 'delay', etc. If I want to make samples, I can apply one effect to the recording, then apply another on playback of the loop on top of that, and reverse the loop if I want. Right now, I have my laptop plugged into it, and I have the output routed into the hardware recorder. The idea is to have as many sources of input as possible so you can add all kinds of unique and interesting stuff.

              I'll like to mic it from different angles and distances. Maybe you will get some etereal ambiences.
