I have tried to do exactly that but was very disappointed in the
results. It seems the MP2X00 is just not capable of recording the
subtle nuances that are a part of bird song through the built-in mic.
Now if the hardware solution existed to record through the Serial
Adaptor, or if there was a way to make each song recording into a
package that could then be installed onto the Newton like any other
package, the results may be much more acceptable. Anybody know if
there is a way to do this?
