equipment specifications and notes
Voices Project. This page describes equipment useful for recording oral history. See Dr Joe Cain for more information.
Note: there's a great deal of kit out there, things change quickly. These are my individual notes, drawn from real use. I do not aim to keep perfectly up-to-date or to consider all possibilities. Do your consumer research before buying.

This model has been updated with the Olympus WS331M (Web), key upgrade is 2Gb memory, rather than 1Gb in WS320. Highly portable. Self-contained.
(brochure | Web)
This piece of equipment has been superceded by other, far less expensive, USB podcast starter kits, such as the Behringer Podcastudio. For a in-studio project, non-demanding project, these alternatives seem better.
