Dear list, I'm about to start a series of experiments on voice quality, and am planning to use a portable mini-disk recorder to record speech from subjects with. Afterwards I intend to carry out some acoustic analysis on the speech samples, including harmonic-to-noise ratios and jitter and shimmer measurements, among other things. However, it has been brought to my attention that, if one wants to do acoustic analysis on the recorded speech, it may be preferable to use a DAT-recorder instead. I am aware that this is an auditory list, but thought that people would most probably know about this anyway. I would appreciate it very much if anybody could explain any pro's and cons of using a mini-disk or DAT recorder. Thank you very much in advance, Christel de Bruijn Department of Human Communication Sciences University of Sheffield, UK
