I am doing my critique on khalil’s ”Luncheon noise” . Overall Khalil’s project was very informative because his post told me a lot that I wanted to know . it was very direct and to the point . The only thing I suggest for a post like this would be to break up the information you have put forth into a paragraph structure rather than putting everything together. another Thing I noticed is that you didn’t really evaluate on how to use the recording device . Sometimes when i post I like to put down any problems I might have which in turn enlightens my classmates on devices and how they can learn from my mistakes. A simple sound cloud link or even some pictures of the recorder and its pieces would have sufficed .
Pictures like this can really inform the viewer on what the components and buttons on their device can really do. i know because it has helped me once before . The sound however was very descriptive of a lunch room surrounding as you explained . I heard the sound of the inhabitants as well as the man making the food . Good Job Overall
now Stephanie went with a different approach and went outdoors for her sounds .
Her recorder ( the Zoom h2n Handy recorder ) has a built in mic which is why she didn’t have to use an external piece. Both her and khalil’s recording sound pretty similar in recording which is a fact i’m not disputing but the presentation of the blog is what I wanted to compare . The blog started with an open soundcloud link as well as a intricate description of 3 things :
1. her recorder
2. The components of the device
3. And her approach as far as sample rate and format .
As I said before both parties did a great job as far as sound and what they were trying to show but the overall post differed in description and understanding . great job to both of you and these are steps that i even consider when I view any of my classmates post . Keep up the great work .
