I'm an analogue electronics design engineer by trade and a music hobbyist in my part-time. I live in Stafford, England. My music composition website is http://www.jamesoakwood.co.uk and if you do pop by, please don't be too disappointed by my vocals!! Also note that some songs do use the occasional swear word.

I'm also writing a beginner's guide for digital filters aimed at rusty analogue engineers. I had to learn the hard way and although there's some useful stuff contained, there are still some areas in it I've not covered very well. If you want to take a look and comment/help/advise it's here.

comment Flagging noteworthy moments during lengthy video recording?
@jptacek I'm guessing here but if the "playback system" has a remote pause feature, something could be interfaced that allowed you to wander off and make a cup of tea and in the meanwhile if the "tone detector" heard the tone it could pause the playback. Another way would be let the playback commence from the beginning and record the "secret" audio onto a wave file on a PC - then examine the wave file afterwards to see where the events occur in time - something like audacity or wavelab would do this. No need to be present throughout. Maybe audio works on fast forward too?
