Hello All,

From The Technician's Desk

From The Technician's Desk

Imagine if you will, a field biologist’s worst nightmare.

You’ve taken care to set up your SM2+ units, deployed them in the field, checked to make sure your units have all powered up, and then set them to sleep. You trek back out of the back country to the access road you fought mud, rain, and blind corners to navigate. You go home, set aside your soaked clothes, pour a cup of your hot beverage of choice, and sit confident knowing your trusty SM2+ recorders will gather all the data you need for that big project.

A month later, you range out to the same patch of woods, unearth your recorders from the fallen pine needles, brush it off, and take the SD cards that hold your precious data back to base. Upon opening your recordings in Song Scope, you find to your deepest horror that nothing was recorded. Your heart sinks as you begin to understand the full consequences to the loss of data. The world spins as a Lovecraftian level of terror creeps in…

Our 10,000th song meter press release has been picked up by Yahoo! Finance, Boston Business Journal, The Boston Globe, and more!
