i'm watching a nature program about spiders. apparantly, they are very sensitive to movement, and even the footsetps of other spiders.

in order to pick the footsteps up, he blew up a balloon around a small microphone, then put the spider on the balloon..the footsteps could then be heard.

...i'm thinking of a cartoon based on using this technique in the bee hive Smile

That's a good idea, thanks for sharing. I'm currently putting together a program with all kinds of animals in it, I can use that well. If I only wouldn't hate spiders.

...if you need recordings from inside a beehive, just give a shout.

i hope they properly compress that recording...to really bring out the 'shinka shinka' of the footsteps..ultra maximized

maybe a mega-compander ???
