Synthesizing the Disparity of Raw and Wav

There are similarities and differences from the raw sound that I hear and from when I hear the recording of the sound. One of the major differences I noted was that the microphone seemed to amplify the effect of distance of sound. In other words, sounds that are close to the microphone are dramatically easier to hear than sounds that are farther away. Anything that is more than a couple yards away from the microphone is reduced to a kind of faint background noise, while sound that is closer is very clear and easy to hear. Additionally, sounds that are “sharper” such as books hitting desks, or papers getting flipped come through more clearly than other ambient sounds, such as the rumbling of a heater. Higher-pitched sounds also seemed to come through more clearly.
