I used to record birds (video+sound) as a hobby in my garden using a raspberry pi computer (+ a camera and a microphone attached to the Pi) and a motion detection software. I stumbled upon the audiomoth, ordered one and I wish to record birds for now.
What set up should I use? Any advises welcome...
Sorry, they are number internally as 0 to 4. I meant the middle, default, setting.
Gain 2 and sample rate 48kHz generally work well. Opening and closing files takes a couple of seconds so we normally use the sleep / recording duration to give us recordings of useful length that always starts at a regular time. If you add one recording period from 00:00 to 24:00 with recording duration 3595 seconds and sleep duration 5 seconds. You'll get a recording that starts on the hour when you switch to CUSTOM (it will wait to start the first recording).
