SFX Recording Session Part 2 – Andre’s Production Diary Part 48

7th January 2012 - General - , , , , , ,

Hi guys, it’s André.

It’s been now a year ago when I started as volunteer at the Benztown studios in Stuttgart and I’m still learning everything about radio imaging and production and sharing it with you guys.

A while ago, I recorded some sound effects. The problem was: there only was a stationary tube microphone in the studio, which made it really hard to record sounds.

Now, we got an upgrade to our microphone arsenal – a portable recorder.

So, I spent the weekend walking through the town on the look for noises and sounds. Recording sounds is way easier, when you’re able to move with the microphone 😉

Doors, cars, all types of everyday items and even animals – every sound must be recorded.

It’s totally easy. A pair of unidirectional microphones for exact recording of certain sound sources and a pair of omnidirectional microphones for recording atmospheres. Now adjust the right input level. Today’s recorders have a detailed peak meter, so it’s no hard task to set up the right level. Many recorders have a lot of more functions like creating new tracks without stopping the recording or setting up markers to help you navigate through bigger audio and and and…

I can’t wait to hear the files in the big studio.

Cheers and have a nice weekend.
