I uploaded an audio test speaking directly into the Tascam D40’s internal mic. It was low in volume because I recorded at a low volume so I wouldn’t clip. I uploaded that raw file without editing it. I then took the same audio clip and raised it’s volume and added some compression. I uploaded it so you can hear the difference. I’ll post the two links below for comparison or visit Soundcloud.com/DavidHarveyWV .
