SOUND  RECORDING.

On-location and in-the-field recording of events,
accoustic musical groups or choirs.

Above is a recording of the three instrument folk group, 'Free Folk', recorded on location in Fordingbridge, UK, in May 2015.

 

 

  • Simultaneous recording of up to 6 discrete audio sources is possible via a Tascam DR-680 field recorder.

     

  • Normal set-up would feature a matching pair of Lindos MM4 omni-directional microphones as the 'Master' stereo set.

     

  • In addition, 4 further directional microphones can be used to target particular instruments or voices to allow separate control and placement of the track within a mix.

     

  • A number of additional and separate, high quality stereo recorders (e.g. for an 'ambient' or back-of-the-room stereo sound perspective) are normally used to add more depth and space to the overall mix or for additional instruments.

     

  • Mixing & mastering of a finished take can also be provided by arrangement, or provision of the raw audio (in a variety of broadcast-quality formats) for the client's self-mixing is also an option.

The video (right) was made as part of Will Westwood's application process for a position in a Costa Rican charity, working with primates in the rainforest there.
Will was keen to show he's the active, outdoor type, so we planned the shoot in a beautiful part of the New Forest, in England. This gave Will the chance to 'sell' himself convincingly in the natural surroundings - where donkeys are more commonly seen than monkeys! Will wore a concealed microphone, which allowed him to be shot in a number of sequences and a wide variety of distances from the camera - while maintaining consistent audio throughout.

Will got the job in Costa Rica!
