Go to bed. Get some rest. Eat some eggs in the morning.

It would always sound better on vinyl with tubes.

Good for playing on endless loops at deafening volume in jalopies, certainly. I've heard such noises often enough, and thought they sounded like elephants breaking wind in cardboard boxes might sound, but now I know what they really were.

For farts, I'd go "ANAL-og"

As with any other recording, it all depends upon the quality of the source more than anything else...but yeah Mathew Ryan has the best suggestion i'd say

Depends on the digits.

Ha! You may not require acoustic isolation while tracking it with headphones, but would do well by isolating your nose w/ some earplugs.

Let us know how exquisitely detailed your capture turns out.

read a good book on foley to see how to create
realistic sounds of things that you cannot do live
and get realistically

the problem is not digital nor analog
it is a combination of things including the microphone
preamp amp eq f/x and room acoustics as well as the
playback system preamp amp speakers and your personal
psychoacoustics with any hearing defects you have

Why would you subject a microphone to that?

In today's world, your fart track--combined with a drum loop and a few swear words--could probably be a hit song.

"Headroom," "saturation," "leakage," "dropout," "fold back," "feedback," and my favorite, some variation of "pushed hard and into the red" are some random audio recording terms that, when used in the context of fart recording take on very different and potentially messy double meanings. This can be a challenge to any novice fart recordist. Prior to working with any paying client I would recommend some practice in front of a small audience (your Mom), and to be sure that you know how to properly set up a pop filter. Kia ora. GW

It's best to use a digital sample; who knows what an anal-log sample sample is like?

Make sure you use a poop filter on the mic

Just like the good old days, where tape saturation could improve (sometimes not) the recorded sound of many rock instruments, and when we consider the even-harmonic structure of the average audible fart, we might guess that the best approach would be to go with analog gear, and push the levels hard. That way your farts saturation qualities will be maximized. You'll know if you have succeeded; your efforts should culminate with something like changing a very full diaper.

Best to use studio monitors with a flatulence response.

Suggest using a -10db pad.

A Fart is good. It's the Digital part that is bad. I suggest Tube Analog as is gives that warm surround wrap that is inescapable. And don't waste it. Wait until you get inside.

Don't listen to all the stupid analog clowns, they are just people who like to make up excuses about how they don't like digital audio because they are really just too afraid to record stuff. I'm not saying that analog won't sound great, I'm just saying that they're just like the guitarists that spend more time talking about gear and shopping for gear and obsessing over that $2,500 tube amplifier than they practice guitar or try to get the best sound out of their own gear and then in the end it seems like a reflection of their lack of dedication to just sit down and DO IT!

Also, the fact is that most listeners now PREFER digital so JUST EFFING RECORD IT!
