    Hi all,

    I am asked to do recording with one single microphone but with 2 different criteria. Essentially, my task is to record the microphone at 8-bit and 11.025kHz for on the fly internet transimission purpose. At the same time, it's also crucial to record through the same microphone at 16-bit and 22.05kHz on the local machine for another purpose.

    Since each recording can be done with single channel (or mono mode), so I guess it's theoretically feasible to record the microphone the way described above. So my questions are

    1) is my guess correct? (that we can indeed do the recording as the way mentioned above)

    2) If answer to the above question is yes, what are the procedures for doing it properly?

    Thanks for all the help in advance,

    good advice from Zilla
    ... if the 8bit converter/recorder and the 16bit converter/recorder have a bridging input
    (input impedance of say 10k or more)
    then a simple Y cord should do the trick

    and if the inputs are 600 ohm there is a good chance the Y cord will still work ok
