I got my hands on a md recorder and microphone... the rest is probably easy to guess :
For starters, tram bell and bus leaving stop - both recorded near my school. The weather was quite bad and it can be heard in background... maybe. Plus this was my first time really recording anything outside, so the input material wasn't that great. I put all my electrical-engineering-fu to use and tried to save it, but the result isn't that great.
Are these worth keeping? I can always record more and start over.
