As a result, the audio recorded directly on the camera through Rode VideoMicro was used instead. RECORDING CONDITION Audio:Fairly quiet village surroundings; outdoors. Audio recorded directly on Sony PJ 540 camcorder with Rode VideoMicro microphone using SC2 inputs and extracted later using Adobe Premiere Pro software. Recording Specs: Stereo, 48000 Hz, 32 bit float.
Documentation and Description of the Hrusso Aka Language of Arunachal Pradesh DESCRIPTION: This is a collection of Audio, video and textual language resources in Hrusso Aka, a language spoken by about 4000 speakers in the West Kameng district of Arunachal Pradesh, India.
